By Samuel Stevens

Release Date: March 5, 2021

Genre: R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop

Label: Fearless Records

The Australian alternative R&B trio Chase Atlantic has returned with their third album, Beauty In Death. Since forming in 2014, the band has released seven EPs, two full-length albums, and accumulated over two-hundred million streams on Spotify. The band has always pushed themselves creatively forward for every release. At the start, Chase Atlantic was a much different band than they are now. They once were pop-rock, but as they matured over the years, the band’s musical style followed. Chase Atlantic has always mixed elements of their rock influences by blending them in with elements of hip-hop. Now they’ve upped their game again by incorporating even more hip-hop and surrounding sub-genre elements into the mix. Adding all the new layers into their signature sound, Chase Atlantic pushes their sound further, for what is their most striking release yet. Following the same suit from the past nine releases, Beauty In Death was again self-produced by the trio.

Emmie Dohse is a singer-songwriter based out of Washington, D.C. has released her debut EP, Free Time, this past summer. Dohse’s EP unites various genres such as classical, soft pop, folk, and Americana into one collection of songs. Dohse brings a unique aspect to the genres with her unusual chord progressions and genuine, honest songs from the heart -both lyrically and musically. Dohse grew up classically trained in piano learning and performing Beethoven, Bach, and Debussy, and shortly after started writing musical pieces of her own. Eventually, Dohse got over her bigger musical fear and began to write her own lyrics and provide her voice on top of her music. Dohse’s soprano voice and musical characteristics are often compared to fellow singer-songwriters such as Allison Krauss and Sara Bareilles.
