'I Don​’​t Want To Die'

ericsampson Catchy, adventurous melodies and chord-changes laced throughout each track, with surprisingly funny, honest, and self-aware lyrics as well. I hear elements of XTC, Tears for Fears, George Micheal, David Slyvian, Joe Jackson, and even RJD2 among possible influences (which are all a good things). Worth checking out!

NNA044: Ryan Power “I Don’t Want To Die”

After self-releasing four previous full-length albums, it’s finally time for the long-overdue debut vinyl offering from Burlington, VT songwriter and producer Ryan Power. “I Don’t Want To Die” is a collection of constantly shifting, well-constructed and unique pop songs, teeming with existentialism and groove. Content-wise, this is perhaps not your average pop record. Ryan’s candidly personal lyrics meditate on the fear of death, hypochondria, soul discrepancies, depression, and the lustful mind, while still remaining remarkably emotional, accessible, and catchy. His silvery vocals meld fluidly with imaginative electronic production, evoking elements of late-70’s soft pop, disco, prog and art rock, synth pop, and smooth r&b funk. Power’s talent for songwriting works perfectly in conjunction with the depth of his knowledge of music – “I Don’t Want To Die” is complex and technical, yet so charming that you only notice it almost as an afterthought, when you’re trying to wrap your head around the song that’s been bouncing around inside it all day. These songs are strange and personal, but they’re also universal. They sound sexy and lonesome, like a dying light bulb flickering on the greatest love-making session of your life. People with problems, shake your bum-bum.
