This has got to be one of my favorite tracks from Vylet Pony’s latest album: Homeward. Vylet has long been known for their amazing vocal talent, and when accompanied by Namii and GalaxySquid, the resulting sound is nothing less then stellar. There are a few changes throughout the arrangement that keep the feeling of wonder alive. The song tells of a mysterious room, but there is much more to the story…
A story from two ponies points of view. One tells of the wonder and excitement of exploring a city full of lights and music. The other outlines the struggles of living the day-to-day life in a city full of crime and sadness. The difference in rapping styles and the contrast in accents matches perfectly with the two takes on the same tale.
Kozmos and ZD are the talents behind the vocals, while Steryotype produced the beat. This combination is definitely one I would be happy to see used again in the future.
Remember Falling is back again , this time with a sadder theme. As we have seen in some of RFs previous work, this piece carries a lot of personal emotion, while still being able to fit in with the story of a show character. A calm piano melody mixed with smooth, bemoan vocals creates an eerie atmosphere. The lyrics themselves outline some of the struggles met by those who constantly feel alone.
Vylet is back with another amazing piece. This one is about our favorite muffin loving pony, and the day-to-day struggles of being different. It explores some interesting aspects of sentimentality and isolation. But it’s not all sad, Vylet turns it around and there is a much more hopeful tone towards the second half. And as always, Vylet’s sweet, smooth vocals tie the entire song together. Well done Vylet, I can’t wait to see what you do next.
Is it just me or is it getting hot in here? From Blackened Blue comes this blazing collab with Reverbrony. The guitar and drum work here is excellent, thease two artists merge really well with each other. If Tartarus needed a theme song, this would be it!
If you hadn’t figured it out yet, “Brohoof Studios” is now just “Hoofy“, and he is ushering in his new age of production with an amazing collab with the gifted Ryan Wiseman. This profound song explores the emotions involved when friends drift apart and friendships fade away. Ryans vocals are simply stunning, and they carry some very real emotion. Well done to you both.
Inspired by Monochromatic’s fanfic of the same name, Night Symphony has composed this amazing 8-part piece that takes the listener on quite a journey. At 24 minutes it’s fairly long, but its definitely worth the time. I especially love the eerie vocals during the “Fight” and “The Oak Library” sections. This seems to be the first original music uploaded on Night Symphony’s account, hopefully we’ll see more in the future!
Steely Hooves Is back with this great piece that explores the interesting relationship between two of our favourite pegasi. The guitar work here is just lovely, and its backed by some simple percussion that complements it very well. I especially like the vocals here, they are relaxed and smooth, but there is a very strong voice behind them. Keep up the great work Steely.
Luna Jax is back again with another profound song with a lot of emotion behind it. Backed by his signature guitar work, Jax tells of his own experience with anxiety, a feeling many of us know far too well. It can be extremely hard to function when those dark shadowing thoughts creep in, and for many, those thoughts come with a loss of motivation or creativity. It’s difficult to live with anxiety, but even harder to speak out and share those thoughts with others. So thanks Luna Jax for having the courage to produce this piece, I’m eager for more.
We all need to feel validation from time to time, and Luna Jax is no exception. His desire for approval is clearly shown through this piece, and even though he knows we all love his music, that voice of doubt can bother even the most talented of us. I’m sure many of us can relate to these lyrics, and the feelings behind them. 4EverFreeBrony is the owner of the fingers responsible for that amazing guitar work, you can recognise his unique style quite easily. Well done to both of you, keep up the amazing (and truly wonderful) work!
