Liverpool’s pop singer-songwriter, Michael Nelson, known as BANNERS, releases a refreshing perspective on societal expectations in his latest track, “Perfectly Broken (Duet Version).” Collaborating with the soulful vocals of Lily Meola, a standout from America’s Got Talent, the song delves into the impact of media-driven ideals.

The well crafted production serves as a reflection on self-image, urging listeners to embrace their imperfections and view them as unique qualities that set individuals apart. The track, a teaser from BANNERS’ upcoming album, “All Back to Mine,” captivates with its mesmerizing vocals and lush sonic landscape.

Describing the collaboration, BANNERS expresses, “It’s a song about two halves coming together to create one beautiful thing, and that’s what she’s done. I didn’t know the song needed it until I heard her voice, but now I think ‘Perfectly Broken’ would feel a little lost without her. She’s brought a beautiful, raw emotion that adds a whole new layer of meaning. I love the new dimension she’s brought to it. I was already really proud of ‘Perfectly Broken,’ and now I love it even more.” This duet version adds depth and emotion, elevating the original track to new heights. Check the track on KOAR’s indie invaders playlist.

Watch out for Silvertone Hills and the new song “Free Me.” Reminiscent of early 2000s pop and alternative rock from the underground scene, the new release is part of the deluxe version of Silvertone Hills’ debut LP, “Limits.”

The band says, “Free Me almost started out as a joke lyrical exercise just to get the words flowing, talking about getting frustrated during lockdown “we never could’ve seen it,” etc. Once I started getting deeper into it, it become more of an anthem for escape, from personal burdens and learning to let go. Like most of our songs, we try and make a catchy/melodic resolve in the chorus, so you can really feel the frustration boiling over by the time Liam belts the chorus.”

Silvertone Hills released their first album, “Limits,” on October 20th. The album showcases the band’s diverse influences, ranging from ‘90s British melodies to ‘60s ballads with some psychedelic twists. The songs are short, well-produced, and feature memorable melodies with elements like guitars and synthesizers. The lyrics cover themes like defiance in the rock songs, love in the pop tunes, and reflections on faith and morality in the moody ballads.

Producer Zach Gerber, known for his work with Walk off the Earth and USS, helped the band select their best material from nearly 40 songs. The tracks are concise, leading quickly to the chorus, making you want to hit replay. The album has already been featured on Spotify’s “Ready to Rock” playlist, played on campus radio stations across Canada, and covered by Exclaim!, The Edge, and more.
