“stories from outer space” is a way that American Timothy Edward Carpenter can find a way to unpack his own feelings and words. His newest song talks about his journey in finding his own identity. It is such a beautiful song with ethereal acoustic guitar strumming and mellow vocals. However, don’t be fooled as Carpenter brutally mixes a vocal layer to display the true inner turmoil of self. Really well-crafted and beautiful tune!
“Rock DJ” by Stay Safe
Stay Safe’s newest single is a very intriguing pop-punk version of Robbie Williams’ “Rock DJ”. Featuring really lively pop-punk guitar riffs and engaging vocals, I love this version so much! Stay Safe did a great job as each second of the song attracts with their alluring and talented pop-punk qualities.
