New Music From Songstress that Thinks Outside the Square Ebony Buckle


New Music From Songstress that Thinks Outside the Square Ebony Buckle

Indie Artist

Ebony Buckle is a London-based singer/songwriter. Hailing from the seaside town of Townsville, Australia, Buckle was encouraged into the entertainment industry by her parents, studying singing, violin, piano and drama and before long she completed a degree in opera singing. Taking listeners on a whimsical leftfield-pop journey with her complex harmonies and imaginative storytelling lyricism, Buckle sings about topics covering everything from romance and broken hearts to disgruntled mermaids, lonely whales and alien invasion. 

 

Realising that the only way to be in true control of her own creativity and express herself authentically was to start her journey as a solo artist, Buckle jumped in head first and has not looked back since. She confides,

“I am a naturally shy person and sometimes find it hard to be myself in front of other people, but music has really helped me connect to my true self. I feel like the songs I write come straight from my brain and they are a true expression of who I am”. 

 

Following the release of her debut single ‘The Mermaids Said No!’, the quirky songstress is introducing her follow-up single entitled ‘Susan’. A track dedicated to her imaginary best friend and alter ego, Susan the Raptor. Mixing elements of whimsy folk, with fanciful pop melodies and infectious lyrics, all baked in to one big Ebony Buckle cake, the delightfully eccentric musician has created a delicious sound, bursting with vibrancy and charm. Emitting a joyous feeling with a hint of melancholy, the track highlights the singer’s operatic trained vocals, which shine brightly throughout. Buckle reveals,

“Susan was born one night after too much prosecco and the name just stuck. She is the carefree, risk-taking and sometimes reckless side of me. I think we are all made up of many different personalities and I just decided to name one of mine! Mostly we wanted to make a really joyful track that would make people smile”. 

 

Reminiscent of Regina Spektor meets Kate Bush, Buckle is inspired by other strong female artists who have forged their own path into the music industry. Aspiring to create music which will help others realise their most authentic self and encouraging people to always take life with a pinch of salt, Buckle confides “I hope it inspires people to be true to who they are. To not be afraid of being different and to know it’s ok to express themselves”.  


The singer come actress has performed in West End plays, as well as a BBC drama, where her role as a Geordie folk singer saw her music reach number 1 in the iTunes World Music Charts. She has also received extensive airplay from numerous BBC stations across the nation, as well as garnering blog attention. In the words of The Mind Monster Solution author Hazel Gale, “It’s a rare thing to find music that speaks so directly from (and to) the heart. Wonderful!” Buckle continues to feed our imagination with her beautifully kaleidoscopic music. ‘Susan’ is currently available worldwide.

Daniella Mason assembles star studded girl Gang Music Video


Morning Bells To Release Debut ‘Fall From The Velvet Sky’ EP

Music Video Image

Daniella Mason is woman: hear her roar,” Billboard‘s Glenn Rowley wrote on Friday. “In the clip [for her new video], Mason rallies fellow female artists including Cam, Alanna Royale, Nightbirde and more for a celebration of feminism as they, quite literally, dismantle the patriarchy in the form of a mannequin. ‘I do my dance, I make my plans/ And my own money/ Don’t say I can’t, you know I can/ Don’t call it lucky/ One woman band, that’s who I am/ The way I run it/ ‘Cause I’m woman lover powerful/ Woman lover powerful,’ she declares as her friends cheer her on.”

“I wanted this video to tell the story that I’ve been storing deep in my belly for a long time— the rage and triumph over what society has demanded from me as far back as I can remember. But I didn’t want it to be a lonely tale of an angry woman scorned. I wanted to inject a sense of camaraderie, a sense of diverse thought and emotion, and all the things we are. I wanted to inject my community. Cue: all of my favorite Nashville lady artists joining me in my quest!,” Mason explains. “I wanted this video to elevate all of us and to elevate our community as a whole— not just myself and my vision. They brought their everything and helped me show so many facets of womanhood. We see Cam, beautifully posing in her newly-announced pregnant state; we see Nightbirde, my friend who had breast cancer while we wrote this; and we see my friend and photographer, Jacqueline Day, remove her wig and reveal something she’s kept quiet. Every artist lent me their voice, their heart, and their body. They just brought it all together and helped me tell a story so much bigger than myself. And that’s really the only reason I’m here.”

Co-written by Mason and produced by Super Duper (R.LUM.R) and Robert Marvin (Tove Lo, Kelly Clarkson, Cher Lloyd), “Woman Lover Powerful” marks the first cut from the Nashville-based alt pop artist’s forthcoming EP, Physical State, due out early next year. The new album is a continuation of her highly regarded State of Mine sound series that includes previously released EPs, Mental State and Emotional State.

While Mason is no stranger to pop commerciality, earning millions of streams on Spotify and praise from the likes of The Guardian, V Magazine, and Refinery29, it’s her left-of-center musicianship and distinct powerhouse vocals that afford her credit in tastemaker and alternative spaces alike. Mason’s material is pop for pop’s sake, generating a balance between club banger and emotional gut punch that blurs genre lines to convert fans of all musical sensibilities.

“Woman Lover Powerful” is available now via  YouTube and Vevo with the accompanying track streaming on SoundCloud ,  Spotify , Apple Music , Amazon,  Tidal, Deezer , and  Google Play.

The “Woman Lover Powerful” cast stars  Cam, Alanna Royale, Sinclair, Nightbirde, Robyn Harris, Jamiah , Bantug, Jacqueline Day and Carine Abraham

Morning Bells to release debut ‘Fall From The Velvet Sky’ EP


Morning Bells To Release Debut ‘Fall From The Velvet Sky’ EP

Indie Band

Morning Bells is a five-piece comprised of Bryan Fransman (drums, percussion, vocals), Ric Denton (vocals), Emory Ball (guitars, percussion), Laura Weislo (fretted and fretless basses, vocals, synthesizer), and Peele Wimberley (keyboards, vocals, percussion, guitars).

The music and sonic aesthetic found on this EP are influenced by Johnny Marr of The Smiths, Television, Yo La Tengo, The Gun Club, David Sylvian, Tori Amos and Talk Talk.

“We’re all very proud of this release but, for some of us, it’s our first ever release of a creative effort like this. That’s beyond words in many ways. Being able to say “We made a record” feels like the most impossible dream coming true. We chose these five songs because we think they’re some of our best work, we feel they tell great stories, and that they’re a great snapshot of the full range of emotion and musicianship within all of us as a band,” says Ric Denton.

“The music is a collaborative effort that is often created to fit the mood of the lyrics although, sometimes, the songs have started with the music coming first in a random moment of free-flow during practice, so we seize on it because we know it’s meant to become a song, and the words are born after. The lyrics, however, are all very personal. Every song has been inspired by actual events or people, so you’re hearing stories of a life and how it’s unfolded. To write anything less honest would be obvious to the listener, and we couldn’t be inspired as artists.”

Morning Bells formed when drummer Bryan Fransman returned to music, approaching his long-time friend Ric Denton about singing with him. They were soon joined by Laura Weislo, who had played in bands in college, but stopped when it stopped being fun. Having known Ric since college, it was destined to be…

Emory Ball had also been Laura’s bandmate in several bands, including Bellbats, having recorded with the great Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Ben Folds Five, Pylon, Helium, Pavement, Suzanne Vega, Game Theory, Ken Stringfellow) … The deal was sealed and they had their full lineup.

The four were eventually joined by Peele Wimberley. Formerly a drummer in several other bands (The Veldt, The Connells and Bellbats). Having recently returned from a lengthy stint in Los Angeles, he was wooed by the opportunity to try his hand at keyboards and as a recordist.

As of December 13, ‘Fall From The Velvet Sky’ will be available on CD. The album is already available across digital stores such as iTunes and streaming platforms such as Spotify. It can also be ordered via Bandcamp.

Emo Band Giants Chair New Single Kids Running


Graces Collide with Powerful New Single Ride

Emo Band

Influential 90’s midwestern emo band Giants Chair is back after a 23-year absence. A new album, ‘Prefabylon’ will be released on December 6 via Spartan Records.

A new song titled “Kids Running” is debuting today in partnership with Talkhouse. Check out the track and an essay written by frontman Scott Hobart Below.

Hobart writes: “I don’t know about you, but I can’t sit down with a stack of old VHS tour tapes of my ‘90s post-punk emo rock band GIANTS CHAIR without thinking about my unease with nostalgia. This is a band that hasn’t made a record — scarcely even played — in the last 23 years… but a band that, nevertheless, has somehow found itself with a new record to be released on December 6, 2019. Like one of my early songwriter heroes, Bob Dylan, I don’t want to look back. I don’t want to tempt my mid-life fate getting wistful or woeful about the “good ‘ol tour days.” But I’m sitting here with these tapes whirring in this borrowed TV/VCR combo because, after all these years, this band is desperate to find some footage to help us pull together some kind of music video by the end of this adult work week. So, here I am at 48. Faced, literally, with myself believing in myself and this same old, well… young, ‘90s emo rock band — at 25 years of age, 23 years ago and now. To quote a more-recent songwriting hero, David St. Hubbins, as he considers what his epitaph should be… “And why not?”

Contemporaries and tour mates of bands such as Jimmy Eat World, Boys Life, The Dismemberment Plan, Hoover, Sweep the Leg Johnny, Cap’n Jazz, Shiner, Boilermaker, and more, Giants Chair released a pair of albums on Caulfield Records in the 90’s and were a part of the early emo scene with acts like Boys Life, Shiner, Christie Front Drive, and fellow Kansas City bands such as Molly McGuire and Season to Risk.

Graces Collide with Powerful New Single Ride


Graces Collide with Powerful New Single Ride

Metal Band

Graces Collide are a powerful melodic riff laden rock monster hailing from the heart of Brighton, UK. Graces Collide are made up of the cool and calm Danny Wenham on vocals and lead guitar and the strong and energetic twins Jurgan & Will Hamblin,  playing bass and rhythm guitars.    

 

They’ve spent the last few years performing  up and down the country with the likes of ‘The Rocket Dolls’, ‘Icarus Falls’, ‘Saint Apache’ & ‘Cyanide Sundae’ (to name but a few) and getting a reputable name in the live rock scene as serious ones to watch out for! 

 

During the summer of 2018 Graces Collide enlisted the help of rock producer & ‘River Becomes Ocean’ bassist George Donoghue (River Becomes Ocean/The Rocket Dolls/MASSIVE) and recorded their debut record ‘Our Tomorrow’.
 
The band also worked with world renowned producer and mixer Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon/Don Broco/Lower Than Atlantis) to mix and master the album.

 

The first single taken from ‘Our Tomorrow’ is the blistering ‘RIDE’ & frontman Danny Wenham says “If you like your killer hard-rock to have more hidden up the sleeve than just plain-old naked aggression, this will be for you…”  
 
... “The track Ride came from the idea of being ground down by someone who feels you are on this earth to serve them and only their needs. The song is about the realisation of that feeling and how you are done.. finished with taking the blame and orders.  Be it a lover or ex lover haha or anyone who you feel doesn’t give you the time or respect we as people deserve… and everything they say is another reason to leave.. or in this case Ride” .
 
The 10 track “riff-monster” album ‘Our Tomorrow’ is set for release Friday 10th April 2020 and the band will be on tour following the release. 
 
Graces Collide are:
 
Danny Wenham – Vocals & Lead Guitar
Jurgan Hamblin – Bass

Attic Theory’s Grungy Rock n’ Roll New Single My own Design


Attic Theory’s Grungy Rock n’ Roll New Single My Own Design

Rock Band

FROM THE ASHES OF ‘MATCHSTICKMEN’ AND ‘RAIN MAY FALL’… COMES ‘ATTIC THEORY’
New name, new beginning for the Liverpudlian based rock band.
Matchstickmen, who released their second album ‘From Our Own Ashes’ (via Holier Than Thou Records) decided it was time to change their name and give themselves a fresh start.
Remaining members of Matchstickmen, Lewis Wright and Peter Donnelly are joined by guitarist Tim Cunningham (Rain May Fall), Kenny McArthur on bass and Matt Simon (Limehawk/Guns N’ Roses Tribute – Guns2 Roses) on drums. 
The band continue their musical journey as ATTIC THEORY.
The new line-up will perform their self-proclaimed genre of Alternative Groove Rock. Heavy hitters in the local scene, Attic Theory are as grungy as one can be without losing the rock ‘n’ roll charm.
The inspiration behind the name Attic Theory was taken from an episode of Elementary – a CBS television series based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes detective stories with contemporary twists. It stars Jonny Lee Miller as Holmes and Lucy Liu as Watson.
Vocalist Lewis Wright explains, “In an episode of the show, Sherlock states that the human brain is like an attic. A storage space for facts. But because that space is finite, it must be filled only with the things you need to be the best version of yourself. We thought this was fitting with everything that was going on and decided it was time to leave the past in the past – New name, new beginning”.
Since forming in 2017, the band have performed a selection of high profile support slots for The Soapgirls, Saving Abel, Psycho Village, Tragedy, Derange, Elvana and Seattle legends Candlebox and have performed at Rock N’ Roll Marathons, Biker Festivals and horror and tattoo Conventions across the country.
Attic Theory toured with Elvana (Elvis fronted Nirvana) at a variety of O2 Academy venues and are about to hit the road with American Rockers, Tantric across the UK and Europe.
All members of Attic Theory have earned themselves an array of prominent gigs over the years, opening for acts such as Electric Six, The Quireboys, Graham Bonnet, INME, Taking Dawn, Uli Jon Roth, The Alarm, Skin, The Trews, Supersuckers, Crowbar, Diamondhead to name a few and have graced the same festival stages as Reverend and the Makers, The Real Thing, John Power, Dodgy, John Head and Toploader plus many more. 
Following the release of their debut single ‘Saints Among Us’, which has over 20,000 streams on Spotify alone, Liverpool based Alternative Groove-Rock band, Attic Theory are back with their second single ‘My Own Design’!
To make the new single a reality, Attic Theory enrolled the help of their fans and held a Facebook fundraiser.
The band asked ‘Theorists’, the name the band has given to their fans, to help them raise the funds to record the single. Lead vocalist Lew Wright commented “We were overwhelmed and humbled by the donations that we received, especially when one of the ‘Theorists’ that donated was Kev Martin from Candlebox! Kev is one of my favourite singers of all time! We are so thankful to him and every ‘Theorist’ that donated and made the new single possible”.
Produced by Loïc Gaillard and recorded at one of the most in demand recording studios in Liverpool, The Motor Museum.
‘My Own Design’ is Attic Theory’s second single but is the first track released with new drummer Matt Simon. Matt was a long serving member of Limehawk and Guns N’ Roses Tribute, Guns 2 Roses. Matt commented “Within weeks of me joining Attic Theory, we were booked into the studio to record the ballsy rock single ‘My Own Design’… I immediately knew this band meant business!”
Lewis says: ”‘My Own Design’ is inspired by a breakdown in communication within a relationship and the realisation that both parties, have become people they don’t even recognise in the mirror anymore, and should not be together. Lyrically, I wanted to mix things up a bit so I made a few alterations to the original subject matter. In ”my version“ of events, one person has come to their senses and has realised they have become a slave of their own making… a slave of their own design… and the other, is hosting their very own pity party and hasn’t grasped that the relationship is over.”

Sienna Wild Release Exhilarating Gritty Single You Wouldn’t Know


Sienna Wild Release Exhilarating Gritty Single You Wouldn’t Know

Indie Rock Band

Indie rockers on the rise, Melbourne’s Sienna Wild have  announced their exhilarating, gritty new single You Wouldn’t Know, a track that places the listener in a strange and unsettling situation between two lovers. The group have also released a killer lyric video to accompany the track.  To celebrate all things You Wouldn’t Know, Sienna Wild is heading out on a national tour in January 2020, kicking off at Frankie’s Pizza in Sydney on January 2, then moving through Adelaide, Brisbane, and wrapping up with a hometown show in Melbourne at The Tote on January 31.
 
For fans of Catfish and the Bottlemen, Eskimo Joe and Arctic Monkeys, You Wouldn’t Know is an absolute firecracker of a song.  Soaring guitars reign, while searing, affecting vocals ride atop the arrangement with strength and power.  You Wouldn’t Know is pretty much everything a modern rock fan could want in a track, and is guaranteed to get you pushing your way through the dancefloor to bust a move.  Speaking on the interesting inspiration behind the track, bass guitarist and vocalist Louis Goutos enthuses, “The sentiment behind the single came from me setting myself a challenge of writing from the perspective of a third party in a break up.  Up to that point, our writing had been about power within a relationship, whether it be during good times or bad.  This time,  I wanted to write a song about an outsider who becomes involved in a break up, as opposed to the two protagonists telling the story.  It is essentially about a girl telling her boyfriend’s best friend she’s going to leave her man, but the boyfriend is too oblivious to realise.  Hence, he ‘wouldn’t know’, but the friend does!”
 

Sienna Wild are thrilled to be taking You Wouldn’t Know on the road, and it’s pretty clear why once you hit play on this track – it’s definitely one for a hot, sweaty, summer gig.  Giving fans a taste of what to expect from their 2020 tour, Louis says, “Fans can expect a tight rock performance full of swirling guitars, crashing choruses and compelling dynamics.  You’ll see a band who have conviction and believe what they say, and mean what they do.  A good time for all!”  
 
As fans of music from the very beginning, Sienna Wild are a passionate group of young musicians who are excited to share this stunning new track with the world.  Reflecting on the formation of Sienna Wild, Louis says,
“Fortunately, I came from a musical family and there were always instruments around so I just started playing things and learning by listening.  I started off with the piano, then the drums, until finally the bass called, and that was when I found my voice (so to speak).  I found like-minded musicians and spirits in the guys from Sienna Wild, and haven’t looked back ever since.  Also none of us are opposed to a few beers and a good time… I reckon listeners should get around Sienna Wild now, before someone else gets there first! You might just be the one to say ‘I told you so’”
 
Sienna Wild is Louis Goutos (bass and vocals), Jonathan Giokas (lead guitar) Lewis Ciavarella (rhythm guitar and backing vocals) and Lucas Manitta (drums).

Dralms Chill out vibes of New Single Gracious Host


Dralms Chill Out Vibes of New Single Gracious Host

Independent Artist

Why would you roam, unless to be homesick?

 

Gracious Host” speaks of the bond that the prospect of a severance can bring. How knowing you are going to lose someone or something only brings you closer to it.
Love Writes Itself was written across a three-year stretch. The records earliest tracks came to be while touring Europe in support of my debut album Shook, while others found their place during cabin retreats on British Columbia’s Gulf Islands

 

Though keeping in line with the chilled-out vibe of the early work, Love Writes Itself pivots from the more digitalistic impressions of Shook towards a decidedly organic groove of symphony strings, woodwinds, piano, and guitar.

 

The album is full of lush and flowery, dialogue, but there’s an oppressive nature to many of its visuals as well. There’s a knotting together of the beautiful and brutal, the crass and the elegant.
I think these juxtapositions have special way of speaking to life, love and romance.

Colour Of The Jungle New Single Saving The BumbleBees


Colour Of The Jungle New Single Saving The BumbleBees

Humblebee single

Colour of the Jungle are a five-piece rock band, whose captivating songwriting and raucous energy has been resonating with audiences from Munich to the South coast of England. Their catchy-but-emotional, approachable-yet-raw sound is built upon sexy bass-driven rhythms and edgy instrumentation, creating music that sticks in the head and the heart.

 

The group of five friends initially started jamming for fun before swiftly moving to the studio where they soon discovered their true potential and recorded their debut EP The Jungle Book. The four-track release perfectly captured the complex basslines of John Harris, confident drum beats of Dan Fiford, rhythmic riff and leads of Joe Costello and Brendan McVeagh, and intriguing lyrics of Jack Evans. Colour of the Jungle succeed in combining each individual’s unique styles, forming a fresh yet genuine fusion of sounds. 

 

Following the release of ‘Steel Tray’ which garnered both critical and commercial acclaim, the band have dropped ‘Humblebee’. The single narrates the current environmental crisis and how years of ignorance from the human race has taken its toll on the planet. It highlights how our selfish acts have caused us to forget the bigger picture and are ultimately destroying our future. ‘Humblebee’ was sparked from life events and retains the feeling of authenticity and honesty throughout the lyrics. Evans confides,

“My sister had gone to a bee farm after her fight with leukaemia and my friend was struggling with a cocaine habit. These events inspired my lyrics. Everyone has stuff going on whether it’s happy or not. I try to deal with my ups and downs by writing songs and each one marks that point in my life”.

Showcasing plucky guitars and gritty vocals which showcase Evans impressive range, the track builds into an upbeat anthem reminiscent of The Milk Carton Kids. Their broad palette of sounds and textures allow the band to craft an engaging and diverse sound. 

 

Inspired by iconic rock and roll greats such as Kings of Leon, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and The Growlers, Colour of the Jungle are sculpting their own identity of playful modern garage rock with the release of ‘Humblebee’.

Colour of the Jungle have teamed up with Humblegarms to donate proceeds from the single to Bumblebee Conservation Trust, a charity which makes efforts to monitor and conserve bumblebees and their habitat.

He shares, “Whether it’s sadness, joy, anger, nostalgia, fear – I just want them to feel something. I think that is what makes a great song and so that is what I will always aim to achieve”. 

 

Following the release of ‘Easy For You’ and ‘Hush’ which both garnered commercial acclaim, accumulating over 100 thousand Spotify streams in only a few short weeks, Gorran is now unveiling the highly anticipated ‘I Don’t Love You Anymore’. The powerful, emotive ballad, supported by effortlessly classy melodies and rich compelling vocals, delivers an emotional and heartfelt anthem. Though truly poignant and agonising at its core, the song also evokes a deep sense of subconscious relief. With such a profoundly personal yet universal message, the track will resonate with everyone who has experienced the pain of heartache. 

 

The self-produced track, which was mixed by Gavin Goldberg (Chrissie Hynde, Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne) reminisces the story of a love lost. Gorran admits how the song helped him heal, acting as a form of therapy. “I was finding it incredibly difficult to express exactly what I was trying to say lyrically in those last few weeks of being with her – it was only once we ended the relationship that I found I was able to completely let go and properly finish the song. It really helped me come to terms with how I was feeling, and how I had been feeling for quite a while. It became clear that the verses were a poetic summary of the fundamental weaknesses in the relationship. The middle 8 was the last section I wrote, and were some of the most painful lyrics I’ve ever had to write, as I realised whilst writing it that it was one final parting note to the person I thought I loved. The song honestly means more to me than almost anything”. 

 

Then there is ‘Roses’. Thematically the stunning single narrates the suppression of dreams and aspirations, particularly in young girls. Originally inspired by his little sister and also greatly inspired by the likes of Greta Thunberg, the song spurs this generation to dream, act and shape our future for the better. Gorran confides,

“Young women such as Thunberg are paving the way for a whole generation of people to make positive changes in our society and so it’s time we listen to them and take them seriously. I think having a little sister myself, who at the time of the writing of the song was only 12 years old, made the subject matter even more poignant for me”.

 

Gorran has seen success opening for KT Tunstall on her UK tour, performing to sold-out audiences across the nation, as well as having graced the stage at the legendary London Roundhouse. With the hope that his music will encourage listeners to be honest with themselves about what makes them happy and to put their mental health first, Gorran continues to produce thought-provoking and powerful music.

Penny Betts release Smooth Energetic Indie-Pop EP


Penny Betts Release Smooth Energetic Indie-Pop EP

Indie Band

The UK’s own Penny Betts offer up a uniquely smooth blend of indie-pop and sixties-style songwriting with their latest and self-titled EP. A four-piece who know precisely who they are and how they want to sound, Penny Betts are inspired by bands stretching as far back as Cream and Pink Floyd as much as modern influences like The Arctic Monkeys and Tame Impala. Their heartfelt songwriting and hypnotic melodies pour through amidst reverb-soaked indie-rock soundscapes, creating something that’s perfectly calming or decidedly energizing – depending on what you need from it; and how loud you let it play. 
Beach-side vibes meet with classic UK tones and an anthem-like approach to songwriting. The band have honed their style and sound over time, with lead singer Matt Felix and guitarist Al Finch first jamming together way back during their school years. Over time, bassist Lufta and drummer Jocelyn completed the arrangement and kicked off a whole new chapter for the band. Rock and roll has returned, the genre and the original flair of the 60s and 70s is alive and well. With a touch of originality and a willingness to storm through language barriers – thanks to Matt Felix’ French native tongue – Penny Betts are well on their way to carving out a path of their own. 
Passion and musical precision meet under the blanket of sweeping guitars and experimental waves of audio warmth. Penny Betts aim to get you dancing, connecting, and embracing the live music scene as the rightful escapism it was always meant to be. A band well worth looking out for over the coming months and years.

Icon The Great Is Back for More with Ferocious Debut Single


Icon The Great Is Coming Back for More with Ferocious Debut Single

Indie Band

ICON the GREAT was formed when Big Wave teamed up with long time collaborator and best friend Tripper, to try and create something raw, pure, and most importantly fun. “We both came in with clean slates of our musical pasts and laid down what felt natural and exciting. We crushed a case of Miller Lite’s, talked, hit record and let what happen happen,” Tripper recalls.

 

The result is ICON the GREAT’s first single “Back For More”, a ferocious emotional unloading about how no one else matters but you and the people you hold close. “This shit is the two of us and that’s it.” says Big Wave. “We write it, produce it, make the artwork, get our friends to help with videos and pictures, and if you want to come along for the ride then be our guest.”

 

With a sound reminiscent of nostalgic 90s rap rock infused with modern alternative and underground SoundCloud hip hop, ICON the GREAT is here to prove that genres and expectations are a thing of the past. “The best part about music in today’s climate is the line between genres is dissolving quicker than ever. Fuck what you listened to in the past. ICON the GREAT is here for everyone to let their demons out no matter where you’re from.”

Australia Wild and Free Debut Psychedelic Single from Tumbo Pit


Australia Wild and Free Debut Psychedelic Single from Tumbo Pit

Indie Rock Band

Introducing the debut single from Newcastle psychedelic pop group Tumbo Pit. Appropriately titled “Australia”, the track talks about current political issues surrounding the country at this point in time. Tumbo Pit complements Joey Geyer’s lyrics with a cascading wall of sound,

“apparently we’ve got boundless plains to share…” – a massive introduction from an Australian band on the rise.

‘Australias’ super catchy rhythmic groove and verse follows by the unique lead vocal which encapsulates the “young and free” qualities that Australia has been known for, exploding into a wild chorus of big voices and mind blowing electric psychedelic guitar. 

Tumbo Pit is an Australian band to watch with excitement. Band members, Duncan Brown, Lachlan Fisher, Joey Geyer and James Osborn, who formed from various acts, have been kicking around Central Coasts, Newcastle for a while now. 

The single artwork “Biraban”, is by good friend and local Awabakal artist Saretta Fielding. It tells of an historical Awabakal leader Biraban and how he worked to bring together “the very different and divided cultures” at the time, a very fitting work for the track!

Dead Reynolds New Music Release With Alt Rock Soul


We All Go Down As Sirens Fall with New Alt Rock Single

Indie Rock Band

The band were formed from the embers of Phoenix Calling & with notable high profile additions including The First’s Ben Knowles to bring you truly relevant and catchy alt-rock. They’ve just celebrated their first year together with this new single.
 
Latest single Souls was released on October 31st 
 
Souls is a different sound for Dead Reynolds and sees a collaboration with Producer Jack Murphy of Crystal Sounds Studio, Norfolk and front man of Youth Killed it.    “Working with Jack has been great, he brings out the best in us and the track, often taking it to a different place” acknowledges guitarist Dom Greenwood
The sound of the band has developed since working with Jack and is more driven with more hooks and riffs. A favourite to play live. “The track is a mix of alternative rock with riffs and breakdowns but also brings in an edge towards pop-punk with a catchy chorus and melodies aimed at staying in people’s heads” adds Luke Reid 
The original idea was carved out on an acoustic guitar by Dom and then shaped as it is by the band and played live before recording with Jack and adding in the drive and layers to the song. 
The song is about feeling isolated, looking over your shoulder and needing to find yourself again. Having to look in the mirror to find any kind of fortitude as everyone around is passing you by. The feeling of being invisible is a common theme. Not giving someone a chance and having regrets is a feature of the track with the subject asking if there is anyone there as they can’t see or feel anyone. Souls marks a more upbeat, driven and determined sound for the band which translates perfectly into the vibrant and electric live show they deliver.
 
The band’s debut single ‘Dust’ was premiered on Scuzz TV while their 2nd release ‘Pieces’ was play listed for 6 weeks on Kerrang! Radio, the track has now been rolled out worldwide and gaining airplay on multiple platforms of BBC Introducing, commercial radio stations and much more. 
In recent months Dead Reynolds has made huge strides with the release of debut EP ’Souls’ and an accompanying sell-out tour which included headline shows and main support slots with Deaf Havana and Mallory Knox.
The band are currently in the studio recording their 2nd EP and head out early in 2020 for a headline uk tour.
CURRENT DATES:
30th November – Voodoo Lounge Stamford
14th December – Corn Exchange, Stamford with Austin Gold
22nd Feb 2020 – Dukes Head Ballroom, Kings Lynn

Debut Single Indicates Georgie Is One To Watch


Debut Single Indicates Georgie Is One To Watch

Indie Singer

Hailing from Fulham, London, the young singer-songwriter crafts her unique modern-pop sound, taking her cues from the silky production of acts like H.E.R, and incorporating elements of synth sand drums,– Georgie’s music is deeply inspired by household names like Billie Eilish and Tom Misch.
When asked about the track, Georgie stated: “I walked into my brother’s house to hear a drum groove him and one of his best friends had created, and within a couple hours of me arriving we had written and recorded the whole song. It’s about moments when we don’t trust our own judgement and the inner conflict that this leads to.” 

 

Georgie has always had a love for music and was singing melodies before she could speak. Demonstrating her affinity for sublime pop music, her unique poetic lyrics set the 19-year-old in a league of her own. 

 

Georgie is set to release ‘MAGNUM’ November 29th via AWAL. With this being her debut release, she’s definitely one to watch out for.

Livietta Releases Debut EP Eponymous 


Livietta Releases Debut EP Eponymous

Indie Artist

Experimental singer-songwriter Livietta has released her eponymous debut EP on the 26th November 2019. This follows on from her last promotional single ‘ode ao tempo’, released in October.
‘I finally own my imperfections’, says Livietta. Written through different periods in her life, the project explores an array of emotions whilst focusing on ‘owning your darkness and seeing beauty in sadness’. Completely self-produced, Livietta manipulates the EP’s intensity throughout, pairing tender melancholy and explosive passion seamlessly. Vocally rich and versatile, Livietta sings in both English and her native Portuguese on the project.
Hailing from Sao Paulo, Livietta started her musical journey at an early age, singing in choirs and learning piano from six years old. Performing in local bands in her teenage years, she began losing her self-confidence, resulting in her taking a long break from live performances. With renewed esteem and a new outlook on music, particularly inspired by Radiohead, Bjork and Nick Cave, Livietta begins to unveil a truly unique alternative take on Indie.

Indie Rock BAnd Turbo Widget Drops New Single Fear


Indie Rock Band Turbo Widget Drops New Single Fear

Indie Rock Pop BandTurbo Widget is probably equally known for their creative sound and their compelling, heart-felt lyrics. This is illustrated perfectly in their new release on for November 29th, 2019, maintaining their one single a month drive, for “Fear”. The song is a call back to their indie roots while also pushing forward. Minimal guitar, with a driving beat and the husband-wife vocals that have become a Turbo Widget signature. The video for “Fear”, released simultaneously with the single, shows a HUGE leap in production value and complete professionalism, telling an animated story that makes the song’s message come even further to life.

“We are beyond pleased with what we are delivering with ‘Fear’ from the song to the video,” remarked Kim from Turbo Widget. “Ben’s vocals are really powerful. I hope the lyrics have animpact where they are meant to since they are important to us!”

Turbo Widget’s diverse sound and artistic video production, along with a prolific release schedule certainly has the profile of the band rising. Kim and Ben from the band are often joined by musicians from far away for their studio work making the best use of technology to cross limits that wouldn’t have been possible in years past.

Expect the pace from Turbo Widget to continue and the impact of their music to all rise. They may be a step away from being the next big thing, rewarding their uncompromising drive. And making Atomic Soul Rock a household word!
