Steady Rollin brings an accordian to the guitar fight in their upcoming single ‘Donde Te Has Metido?’

Ellen Oakley

Dropping May 24th, Steady Rollin is merging blues-rock and the Spanish language seamlessly in their release ‘Donde Te Has Metido?’ (Where Have You Gone?). This will be the El Salvadoran musicians’ first Spanish language track and promises to leave listeners with an earworm of a tune.

As the song kicks in, the trio instantly commands attention with a soft acoustic guitar that steadily builds into a heavier variation. With metal like pacing driving the track forward but letting each beat hit and resonate, ‘Donde Te Has Metido?’ culminates in a sinfully melodic chorus that is equal parts toe-tapping and impactful. The tone is kept on track narratively with equal parts playful energy and emotional performance, weaving the tale of a love like no other that changes a person’s perspective on life, to only lose it when the things fall apart. Whilst the tonal shift is not drastic, it’s enough to switch from upbeat to a sense of longing seamlessly, showing genuine craftsmanship and a sense of musicality whilst avoiding an overdramatic finale that could take listeners out of the experience.

At its core, ‘Donde Te Has Metido?’  is an ode to the classic rock sound of the 70s, with nods to the likes of Cream and The Who. It relies upon traditional rock elements, which are enhanced in its presentation, and the result is a refreshing take on the nuances of the style.

Overall, Steady Rollin enhance established occurrences with the inclusion of a new quirky perspective: see the use of an accordion as a competitor to the standard guitar feature. The inclusion of the Spanish language never causes a barrier due to the palpable talent and sentiment present, making it accessible and a must-listen.

Saint is ready to introduce a revolutionary rhythm to the world in the form of his latest EP ‘Lucid’

‘Lucid’ is a raw, catchy and bold debut for UK Hip-hop artist Saint that manages to cram in everything you could want in a five-track EP. With bouncy instrumentals and thought-provoking lyrics that focus on real-world issues, ‘Lucid’ is a satisfying experience.

The EP opens with the punchy track ‘Adrenaline’, which explores the feeling of being able to do anything and everything. It offers a laidback instrumental, allowing the lyrics to steal attention, demonstrating what can be expected later. Throughout the EP, the lyricism is intense, tying each song together with a clean vocal performance and excellent pacing. The following ‘Back Then’ reflects upon growing up and the recklessness of decisions made, whilst commenting about the process of making it on your own. The pacing is sleek and offers a chant worthy chorus that any listener can relate too.

‘Changes’ is a lesson in how your actions can affect others and in believing in yourself and your abilities: a positive message that should not surprise the listener as the EP’s overarching tone is positivity in self. This positivity and the message of self-belief is carried over, especially to ‘Distant Dream’, where it heavily features as a subject.


The EP closes with ‘No More’, arguably the most powerful track featured, discussing matters such as media control, freedom of knowledge and succumbing to things pushed upon you by others. It is a refreshing observation of modern existence and ends ‘Lucid’ on a compelling note.

No More – Lyric Video

Overall, ‘Lucid’ is refreshing and introspective; it keeps listeners engaged with its social commentary made accessible through music. Saint has created a collection of tracks that show depth, intelligence and passion whilst he never loses sight of the EP’s flow and narrative. This thoughtful take on rap should not be missed.
