PETER KLEINHANS PREMIERES HIS NEW TRACK “TURN THE TIDE” 171

Having moved away from his previous – and up until recently – lifelong career as a racehorse trainer, announcer and broadcaster, Peter Kleinhans is now starting to make his mark on the music world and has reignited his passion for song-writing, guitar and piano playing. With his debut album Something’s Not Right due for release early next year, ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere his latest single “Turn The Tide.”

Asked about the creative process and story behind the song, Peter says:

“”Turn the Tide” is a song that began as an exercise and turned into something with an actual direction. The main arpeggios off of which the song is built started out as a guitar exercise written by Matt Detro, and the lyrics used the names of two of my favorite racehorses, Turn The Tide and Trim The Tree, who were arch rivals as well as sharing three-word alliterative names.

But the song took shape when I combined it with one of my favorite photographs taken by my father, of a distant couple in Central Park in fall. Between the music, lyrics, and visual, I let my imagination conjure a gentle world in which two people face the passage of time with dignity and grace. I think of it as one of the more optimistic of my songs because it suggests that the whole of a life shared with someone can indeed exceed the sum of those live’s individual parts.”

EXCLUSIVE: STERLING INFINITY PREMIERES HIS NEW TRACK “#HYPNOTIZED” 54

Having first discovered his passion for song-writing and performing in gospel music, Sterling Infinity’s voice soon earned him attention from anyone fortunate enough to witness him on a stage and he quickly moved from performing in churches to playing historic and iconic venues such as Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall.

Now, here in 2018, Sterling has embraced his love of pop music and intertwined it with flashes of R&B and house styles, to create the persona and the sound that so many have come to know and love. With an empowering, captivating vocal prowess – a seemingly effortless range and a stunning rich vibrato – Sterling’s career continues to go from strength to strength as more and more music fans on both sides of the Atlantic discover his gift for themselves.

With comparisons to the likes of much loved and much missed icons including David Bowie, Freddie Mercury and Prince, Sterling Infinity is now set to launch himself further onto the global stage with the release of his self-titled deluxe edition album on July 20th. In the meantime, ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere his new and deeply hypnotic single “#Hypnotized (Pyramid Black Remix)”, about which Sterling says:

“When I wrote and arranged the track, I wanted to write something that was timeless and would never be dated – that people of the future would still love the beat and rhythm. For me, house music is timeless. This is synth-rock meets house.”

REVIEW: PAPER HAWK – ‘THE TIDE’ EP 68

Opening with lead single “Trails”, the 4 track EP from Brighton alt-folk duo Paper Hawk gets off to a strong start with a song that’s all but an anthem – and lyrical reminder – about not going back to something, notably a relationship, that is/was volatile and no good for you. It’s one of those songs that anyone who has endured negative situations in their lives will identify with, and one sure to find itself on repeat.

Next comes “The Fourteenth Floor.” Addressing long distance love and relationships, it’s not quite as strong as its predecessor, but with a impressive vocal performance, one cut from the demos the pair recorded on the same night they wrote the song, there is both a rawness and a vulnerability to the track which will likely leave anyone who hears it feeling that spine-tingling feeling that they can do achieve anything – especially when it comes to love.

There’s a fizzing, slowly building energy to “Northern Sky”  which ensures it’ll go down a storm when it’s performed live. At a time when mental health and personal struggles are all too commonplace, the track offers a soft, comforting, but at the same time strong arm of support to anyone who needs someone by their side to help them through difficult times.

Closing number “Written In The Lines” is all but a final chapter, a closing few paragraphs as it were, to the story told within “Trails.” Focusing on those final few life changing moments of a relationship when you reflect on how it should have ended some time ago, together with the toll it’s taken on you, physically, mentally and emotionally, the vocal performance very much mirrors that of “Trails”, bringing the EP’s story full circle, and finishes it off in a reflective, but also accepting manner – something rarely found or displayed in any artists’ music today.

Paper Hawk’s The Tide EP is out now.
