ewport City Radio's Love Live Music Awards has officially launched and the nominees for the Best Original Song have been announced. This week I am going to be taking you through each of our nominees so you can decide who gets your vote!
I was honoured to be part of the judging panel for this category and out of 24 entries we have managed to whittle it down to 6 nominees. Today we have local duo Shimai with “Senses”.
This song was a grower for me. When I first heard this one I liked it but the more I listened to it, the better it got! This song is a slow one with a folky yet dramatic vibe throughout. The vocals on the track also are lovely with some great harmonies.
The lyrics of the song are very deep and quite depressing – but who doesn’t love a song like this! To me, this song is about someone who is making your life a misery and who won’t let you go so you can’t move one. I love songs with meaningful lyrics like this song has that can be interoperated differently by different people.
Check out this song by watching the music video I made along with fellow Newport City Radio member Gareth Willey and local filmmaker Haydn Rushworth of the Neon and cast your vote here!
