Ananda Xenia Shakti’s “No More Limits” Is Infectious

The elegant and seductive vocal stylings of Ananda Xenia Shakti is back with her latest single No More Limits. After a wonderful reception from previous tracks; Cosmic Quiver and Love Is Where You Are, No More Limits channels that same tranquil, and meditative musical stylings and contrasts it with Ananda Xenia Shakti’s high-energy vocals to create another hit single. “No more limits to your beauty or your love.” The overall theme of this track is one of self-love and awareness, finding oneself’s place within the world, and the spiritual plane as well. All the while being true and content with the wonders of the world around you. “Just say yeah, yeah, yeah, you make me happy.” This healing vibe is channeled throughout this track as Ananda Xenia Shakti reaches a higher plane of awareness, brought on by her cast experience with Sanskrit and Yoga, to achieve a higher understanding. As with previously mentioned tracks, the Love The Power Band is right there alongside Ananda Xenia Shakti staying right in the pocket and capturing every one of her vocal nuances as she resolves her cadences. This accentuated downbeat inspires listeners to dance along with the free chant-like vocals, getting absolutely lost within the melodies.

No More Limits is another example of the power of music as healing, reflection, and spiritual connectedness. Ananda Xenia Shakti & Love Power the Band delivers another single which fits all the above criteria in a manner that is both entertaining and challenging. No More Limits would be a perfect fit for any Spiritual, Workout, or meditative playlist, but that is not the only limit to No More Limits, why not add this track to a party playlist? The repetitive chant-like vocals elicit a sing-along response, and the powerful groove performed by Love The Power Band is a perfect vibe to get up and dance to. No More Limits is a very enjoyable track, and in comparison to previous releases, I feel Ananda Xenia Shakti is reaching into a more pop-inspired songwriting structure. The infectious melodies and dynamic harmonies deliver a hook and make this track very memorable, and worthy of many listens.

Ashley Puckett Holds Nothing Back on “Tequila”

A woozy, dazed quality emerges on Ashley Puckett’s yearning “Tequila”. From the slide guitar to the gritty storytelling it all works. She manages to make this rather captivating world one that feels doubly refreshing. Everything about her delivery adds to the inherent beauty of the piece. Rhythms go for a looseness ensuring that every single detail gets accentuated with percussion that works on an emotional level. Best of all the riffs have a dreamy disposition for there is this sense of pure longing that defines the work.

She holds nothing back and right from the beginning it has its own sense of purpose. A groove has an unsteadiness to it, perfectly embodying what a lot of tequila might do to a person. This, on top of the lustful glances that she brings into the fray, further adds to the romantic quality of the work. Volume adds to this for the piece virtually works itself into an outright crescendo. Many different parts of the group makes sure to intermingle creating this vast expanse of territory, the kind of thing that feels quite potent. For the final stretch of the mix the song seemingly tapers off, allowing for a gradual letdown of that kinetic energy, with her voice continuing to lead the way all until the very final moments.

“Tequila” has a tenderness to it, for Ashley Puckett makes sure to touch upon the very essence of what it means to truly want.
