Ahead of the UK leg of their ‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain’ tour, Bear’s Den reveal their next single to be the brilliantly atmospheric ‘Greenwoods Bethlehem’. Brought into vision with stunning live visuals that were filmed across continents in various venues over the course of their current tour, the video captures band and audience in […]
Dutch singer/songwriter Nina June immerses a sprawling, glacial landscape of cinematic pop on ‘When We Fall’, this is equally transferred to the glowing visuals, which premiere below.
It’s been almost two years since the last time we wrote about Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Bowen and, just like bumping into old friends, it is always a warm surprise to hear from an artist once again and see how far they have taken their craft.
A passage of words set to a melody can wield immeasurable strength, and ignite within its listener a life-long connection. For the greats and the poets of our generations, a skill such as this one refuses coercion and falls naturally, and might even move millions in its wake. A song that has travelled the ages and continues to stir […]
Macclesfield three-piece Cassia chase the sun and celebrate their friendship in the accompanying film clip to new single ‘100 Times Over’. Themes of embracing adventure and searching for escapism are explored heavily within the visuals.
Today we are delighted to bring you the first fruits from new Manchester-based band South Island Son, a collective of exciting young musicians that are ready to make their mark on the city’s music scene and also further afield (revealing to us that they already have plans scheduled to tour France and the UK, early 2017).
After a three-year hiatus away from music, Aimee Herbert-Smith (the musical creator behind Mere Child) debuts her return with the darkly poignant, self-referential dream-electronica of ‘Not Good Enough’.
Newcomers Tokyo Tea Room dredge up woozy pop from the Kentish coast on ‘Sleep’. As early offerings go, the cut is a pure undiluted foray into the young band’s psyche – it’s breezy but breaking through the cracks is a darker edge.
The Loose Cut are ambitious. Their sound cuts through the noise, it’s a thunderous call to the heavy rock of QOTSA. Unforgettable and wonderfully intense, the four piece are here to make their presence known.
We are very pleased to be able to premiere a powerful and intimate performance of ‘Help Yourself’ by Bryde, filmed by the team at Ont’ Sofa. It’s unrelenting and immensely sincere.
With the way that technology and music making work hand-in-hand today, it’s so easy for an artist or producer to start creating and releasing their own compositions. Particularly in a way that showcases their artistry, with the same degree of skill and competency that could only be achieved before in a full fledged studio. The revolution […]
Airy yet melancholic synth arpeggios open this fantastic track from Brisbane alt-pop group Cub Sport, with the repeated painful title line “you’re my only friend…” ushering in the anthemic chorus. The overall off-kilter and slightly gloomy feeling of the song is an intentional device used to musically articulate the central themes in the lyrics. As […]
Manchester’s Slow Readers Club have always been firm favourites of ours, and they continue to stun with each new release. Taken from their glorious second album ‘Cavalcade’ is new single ‘Plant the Seed’ – a brooding, intense three minutes of anthemic indie-electro. It’s the band at their most innovative.
Rudi Maier (aka. Burkini Beach) has travelled far, not just in physical terms but in the chronology of his artistic development. He’s already achieved previous musical success with his band, The Dope – an indie-punk 2 piece – it has held him in good stead to go out on his own, and carve his own path with Burkini […]
Brighton based folk band, Paper Hawk, are back with a stunning new track titled ‘Written in the Lines’, taken from their forthcoming EP.
The debut single from The Loose Cut is finally here, we’ve been following this band for a long time, so we’re delighted to be bringing you the première of the music video for their single ‘Soul’.
‘Bunched Up Letters’ delights instantly, swirling and swooning with soulful, bluesy swagger. Like Hozier and Palace, The King’s Parade meld contemporary elements with more traditional blues, fusing pop elements and classic ambient tones.
Aussie folkster Patrick James has unveiled a music video for his slow burning new single ‘Bugs’, taken off his yet to-be-released debut album. A fan favourite since James’ busking days, ‘Bugs’ is an acoustic track bolstered by a cracking chorus melody and poised production.
Big guitars, towering riffs, powerful psychedelic vocals and echoing ambience. Sheffield’s atmospheric rock band Julia have certainly captured our attention with their début single ‘Take and Leave’.
Where most bands tend to be overly excessive when it comes to putting their creative visions into motion and creating their visual aesthetic. Flyte insist on exercising restraint and the audio visuals for their new single ‘Closer Together’ is a gleaming example of this. The end product is a charming, nonchalant look into the bands personal […]
