At the moment, we are all “confined” in our apartments and every day we ask ourselves and others the question mand when, by the way, this is all going to pass, even though it had been just over a week since the state of emergency had been declared. Still, there are many good things about all of this, and one of them is that you have time to devote yourself to absorbing music, movies, books, or whatever you like, as much as you love. Therefore, we bring you something beautiful in this gloomy time. In front of you are 5 tracks, some of which, or more, will at the moment mean everything in the world and bring you the necessary dose of pleasure so you do not fall into complete misery.
There is no state of emergency on the internet, so there is no need for us to cancel voting in Rezov. So vote, at the end of the text, for your favorite to secure a banner on our site. Voting ends April 1 at midnight.
Billboard – The Last Mohican
After two calm years the Belgrade band Billboard announced in early March “The last Mohican“And dedicated it to the most vulnerable class of society, which layer they mean exactly we won't reveal to you, listen to the song, read the lyrics, don't be lazy. The new track is pretty melancholic – melodic, as they would say, unlike some of the earlier stuff in this band. There are two concerns about this. First, it can be very boring for the listener, and the second concern is the lyrics of the song written in Serbian, it may protrude. The billboard has excellently overcome both obstacles and here it is in “Short cuts”. Even though it lasts almost six minutes, the Last Mohican, just when hinted at monotony, draws its trump cards – tune-ups, melancholy strings, a guitar miniature and a carpenter-themed piano. The Mohican rules the atmosphere. Some bands tried to cover a similar topic, but they did not do it best and found their place deservedly in our second section (Government in Exile). In order not to dominate the description of the sad state, to finish the song in one promising tone, the drum lifted the song to a higher level when the vocal chanted “If you are a little firmer, then your time is moving”. No leaning aside, you are not alone.

Ravens – Black epic: Singing first
The only question is how no one in our country has remembered to put these things together before, because it's just amazing how much black metal and tracks go together in every possible way. Even when a team like this gets around that style, the product just can't be bad. What a thunderstorm of tracks, and yet everything is so drinkable and listenable. The distinctive sharpness of the song is given by Nefas's distinctive way of writing the lyrics, while the melody is served by the backing vocals, which give this composition an additional ethno atmosphere, significantly contribute to the dynamics and expansion of the sound spectrum and represent, perhaps, the main weapon of the song attacking from the grip. It's nice to see something like this reach over 65,000 views in less than a month, which, we must admit, is almost never the case with us in this musical style. We heard “Sing the first one“And we can't wait to hear the sequel to this epic.

Technicolor Lies – Daddy
Although they have two great EPs behind, Technicolor Lies continues to unjustly languish in the throes of unpopularity and unrecognition. There are, what I know, some ten years ago they still failed to transfer 1000 likes to Facebook !? His mother, and my neighbor Goran Vulkanizer, would charge so much for his shop to decide to make a profile! Where's the secret to failure? I really don't know. Great single ”Air Max”From last year seemed to indicate some positive movement. The video was interesting and the song even better. It was a good time to get into gigs as much as possible, a moment that seemed to be missed. New single “Daddy”Is less hitty than its predecessor but it only adds to its seriousness. The song buys you in the introduction, but unfortunately, it culminates in vocals that somehow fall too low into the mix to bring the song as it deserves. Do not be confused, for all the above, the song is for a reason in this section and not in the “other side of the mirror”. Techniclolor Lies continue to be, with Young Husbands and (almost) Reflection, the pioneers of emo sound in our country. Now, what 'em' is still an ugly word here is another story… #jesuistechnicolor

Them Moose Rush – Jude's Got Another
You know that feeling when you listen to a song and you know exactly where it is headed, you know when “that main part” is going to be because the whole presma is graded towards it? By the Bjelovar trio Them Moose Rush this is not the case. In their songs “that part” can catch you right at the beginning (like in this one), they can play a riff that sounds the same when you play backwards (“Redrum”) can explode at any time, and Nikolina's scream can cut you off just when you least expect it. So the strongest link of this band is the unusual arrangements, a “Jude's Got Another” is a real example of that. The established forms of stofa-refrain are almost non-existent, so each song is told in a unique way. Those songs that were fortunate enough to be selected for the single also received highly creative videos, and what are the two thieves trying to steal from one “Badass” look at the scientists in this latest one.

VHS Stereo – I'm cheering for you
VHS Stereo it may not be too catchy a name, many kids won't even know what it's about, but if you put together a band name and their first single “I'm cheering for you” everything will be clear to you. The song literally exudes VHS cassette timing and is designed to be on the soundtrack of some romantic comedy, and it is exactly when the two main characters finally settle down while everyone around them jumps in and out at a house party. That moment was captured in a really great way in the video. Eventually, it's just missing the shooting of some light bulbs and sparks flying all over the room and panic among the attendees as the camera goes around the two main characters standing in the middle of the room while everything around them is in slow motion … Okay, stop me. You can already see it all in the existing video, just without these cliché scenes. If so “I'm cheering for you“ the first single of this band, then we cheer for the other songs from the forthcoming debut album as soon as possible “I'm not well tonight“, and that this condition goes out as soon as possible so that some gig may fall.
