Take a deep breath - A better life

Led by songwriter and producer Phil Daniels, A Better Life recently finalized their debut studio album, which is going to be released independently on the first of May, 2021.

The group started working on this release in September 2019, and they managed to complete the tracks over the span of 18 months, despite the stressful times caused by the global pandemic. The tracks showcase an incredibly diverse sound that sets the bar higher in terms of sound design. Along with trip-hop and chillwave influences, A Better Life set out to expand on ambient influences, and even Celtic music.

The unique thing about combining Celtic sounds with ambient electronic soundscapes is that the music acquires a distinctive new age focus on setting the bar higher in terms of sonic aesthetics and genre definitions, creating a fantastic collision of different genres and ideas. A Better Life’s debut album ultimately feels like a sonic journey that will make you feel more grounded with your surrounding and give you a sense of peace and relaxation. This release unfolds beautifully throughout the span of eight studio tracks, each with something amazing to bring to the set-list. In addition to the world-class production aesthetics, the album is also lifted up the the artist’s remarkable attention to details, displaying a very dynamic production style that brings energy and vibrancy to the table, without compromising in terms of haunting soundscapes and contemplative moods.

I would highly recommend listening to this particular release if you are a fan of artists as diverse as Air, Brian Eno, Enigma, Portishead, Massive Attack, Jonsi & Alex, Boards Of Canada, or Royksopp, only to mention but a few.
