Exclusive Artist Review: The Harmalators – “Two Great Minds Think Alike” Album

We’ve had The Harmalators duo on our platform before, and they have yet to do disappoint. Since that time, the elite Californi-natives have put together another plethora of colorfully eclectic songs with top notch production value and songwriting technique versatility – some which have landed them in award/charting positions. Comprised of eight amazingly blissful textures and structures that melodically soar throughout the musical landscape, the two brothers in The Harmalators have truly hit it out of the park with their 8-track collective, titled ‘Two Great Minds Think Alike‘, an exercise in innovation, thoroughness, blissfulness and so much more that’ll captivate your musical aura and ambience.

Opening track “Love On Fire” really emphasizes their vocal melody approach, all while keeping that indie feel at the forefront with several facets of different instruments playing their respective roles. Each vocalist really helps enhance the other and you can tell that their togetherness and solidification really puts the melody strength into the writing structure in its entirety. It’s a brilliant intro to the album that will easily entice you to listen to the duration of the record in its entirety.

“Where Would I Be Without You” is a much more simple listen but is undeniably a much more basic structure – and that is held to the highest regard. It’s a shorter song, one that is easily to take in as a classic, and could definitely be heard as an intro to one of those 90s sitcoms (a GOOD one, by the way). Another facet of this track is to find it impossible to get it out of your head. From its title track lyrics, addictive melody structure and just overall charming presence with its well-put-together.

Overall, ‘Two Great Minds Think Alike’ insatiably showcase both brothers’ strongest points in both production and performance value in ways that entice any listener to hear what they’ve put together over the years together and solo-wise as well. They’ve put out a small catalogue of their innovative gems in the past foür😝 its time, but this 8-track collection of highly-produces bliss will definitely turn some heads; especially when an album like this is in the band’s arsenal.

“Two Great Minds Think Alike” have also garnered them some award status. Including…

If this is the first time you’ve heard the first time you’ve heard The Harmalators, then it definitely won’t be the last!

Exclusive Artist Review: Ruben Gausel Torkelsen & Jessica Chertock – “Rebound” Single

It’s rare that you find a collaborative gem like “Rebound”, an ambient and hypnotic new single from Norway’s EDM pioneer Ruben Gausel Torkelsen and NYC-based vocalist Jessica Chertock. While both artists completely hone their own versatile crafts that are a standout of their calibre, this track’s collaboration efforts between the two prominent artists truly encompass a type of musical magic that is scarce in today’s modern music realm – and “Rebound” really spotlights this sentiment in several crucial ways.

This hypnotically atmospheric EDM/Pop effort not only showcases both artists most effectively, but also provides a visceral listening experience to just about anyone that comes into contact with this song. Comprised of melodically structured EDM measures that bring forth a nostalgically blissful approach, the verses explore a vast array of emotions with Jessica’s tender vocals that really draw you in from the onset. Ruben’s attentiveness to detail in this song especially gives her the free reign to structure together a lyrical style that really aims for the soul and the musical centerpiece that harbors within all of us as listeners. The chorus is brilliantly anthemic and hits really hard after the verses build up to the moment it starts. Not only are the vocals captivatingly ambient, but the song structure gives every lyrical measure the necessary strength to be hypnotic, clever and with a wholesomeness that is original but still familiar among other industry greats that have used similar formulas. But overall, the melody choices between the song structure, vocals and musicianship factors that compliment the artists’ artistic merit – “Rebound” is a track that utilizes melody choices with the ability to truly captivate positive emotional responses from today’s music listener’s in ways they may or may not have felt before. It’s like a honeymoon phase that never comes to an end – and the feeling stays with you forever.

This song also has that undeniable staying power, the power to stay with you even after it’s over. This is also the type of track that’ll have you doing a deeper dive into both artists’ careers and discography. It has top notch production value, artistic authenticity and that ambience that truly gives this song an aura that is simply unforgettable. “Rebound” truly sets the bar high for both Ruben and Jessica as prominent rising artists. But we have a feeling they have even better tricks up their sleeves when the time comes for their subsequent releases. You can listen to “Rebound” now on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and several other digital music streaming platforms. You’ll be beyond fortunate that you did.
