‘Dead Days’ Have Arrived, And They’re Ready To Fight!

 

British Heavy Rock band ‘Dead Days’ have just dropped a new single from their latest EP titled ‘Fight‘, adding to the long list of projects from the three-piece.

Starting in May of 2016, the trio have worked hard and put so much care and effort into their love for music, whether its song-writing, playing live or recording, they have proven that they are a force that has no means of stopping. Their electrifying, yet superbly unique compositions have helped gain a reputation, as well as experience in interesting ways. Travis Marc, Drummer and Lead vocalist has been a music lover for a long time, and has had a solo outing, as well as winning a competition to record a song with Billy Talent in Canada in which he helped produce ‘Six Feet Under’ which we used as a B side, so you can trust these guys when it comes to the music.

What also makes this trio unstoppable is how they pull together and each have their own divisions within the band. Travis is also a drum and guitar tech, providing a lot from the technical as well as the writing side, DC, the bassist and brother of Travis, runs the creative side in art and graphic design, which is a heavy feature within the bands arsenal, and James Mattock, who is a long time friend of Travis after they met working in a bar in London, is lead guitarist with a unique and potent style.

Be sure to check out their debut Album ‘Start Over Again’, as well as their brand new EP ‘All Your Lies’ available on the 25th of September on their website.

‘Belinda’ by vintage-rockers Albino

London based vintage rock band Albino are hitting us with their new track ‘Belinda’, taken from their whiskey fuelled new album Night At The Chemist.

Yes that was whiskey! Albino’s main aim is to entertain with their rambunctious, often humorous ‘drinking’ music.

Their latest track ‘Belinda’ exudes this throwback, vintage feel that sounds like it could have come straight out of the 60’s.

Consisting of Ben Tucker (guitar/vocals), Merv ‘Fuzzy’ Salole (Bass), Gareth ‘gwEM’ Morris (guitar) and Don Gibson (percussion), Albino’s sole aim is to entertain with their rambunctious, often humorous ‘drinking’ music. As the main songwriter in the outfit, Ben is the driving inspirational force, tapping into a deep well of life experiences that draw on topics as diverse as love, deviancy, distrust of priests, historical events and of course, drinking.

Since they began in 2005, Albino has undergone a musical metamorphosis, travelling a long way from their humble beginnings, but now, the off-the-wall band has cemented their style and truly found their own sound. Whilst Albino’s eclectic and multi-talented musical line up has changed over the years, this latest track proves their musical direction, commitment and energy has always remained constant.

‘Luna Blue’ and Their New, Funk-Infused ‘Borrowed Words’

Brighton based band Luna Blue and their new track ‘Borrowed Words’ bring a refreshing, original take on the musical world. The funky, complex bass riffs carry the excellent lead vocals through a stream of rhythmic guitar tones and grounding drum beats.

Tom High’s strong vocals and occasional beautiful falsetto detours, combined with brilliant control and his professional rhythmic guitar skills give the lyrics an elegant presentation, allowing us to really hear every lyric and its meaning. They capture us within the catchy, funky beat until we can’t help but sing along. They are joined by the the bouncy bass tones from Nick Davie securing that original foot-tapping sound that we can’t stop listening to.

With the help of an excellent music video, and the rhythmic sound that this single has produced, you can really see, and hear, the energy and the atmosphere that this band is trying and very much succeeding to capture. It’s an atmosphere of relaxed chaos. The combination of the occasional falsetto vocals contrasting with upbeat drum and bass work perfectly to create an atmosphere of a relaxing carefree, but fun, time, something we are constantly searching for within out busy lives.

Luna Blue’s single ‘Borrowed Words’ is an exciting sound that I can’t wait to hear more from in their upcoming EP ‘Nightjar’, which I’m sure will boast an excellent, energetic atmosphere, and more of the bands mind blowing guitar, bass and drum skills.

‘Get Beyond’ – The Dream Like, Euphoric Music Trip by John Dylan

To say that this is his first solo venture, John Dylan has managed to put his best foot forward. ‘Get beyond’ is our first glimpse into his upcoming album: ‘Peripheral Drift Illusion’, and what a beautiful glimpse it is. From the outset we are lifted by electronic waves of gentle guitar tones supported by the catchy rhythmic rumble of drums and bass. The electronic-funk introduction, with its psychedelic undertone, carries us to John Dylan’s expert, intricate and soul-filled guitar skills, serving to build that unique sound that the track boasts.

These enchanting isolated guitar notes perfectly introduce us to John’s excellent falsetto vocals, which are then once again accompanied by the earth-rumbling bass and drums, creating a sound that you can’t help but love. The funk of the bass interlaced with electronic, dreamy vocals and lyrics creates a stunning, unique sound.

I think that it is this unique sound that truly captures John’s attitude to life, he notes that ‘there are hopeful moments in the form of songs like ‘Get Beyond’, where I encourage myself to get out of bed and come out of hiding into the world’, this is reflected in the euphoric, laid-back but emotional sound within ‘Get Beyond’ that empowers us to do the same.

The magnificent sound that ‘Get beyond’ captures, is an exciting, alluring taste of whats to come with his new album ‘Peripheral Drift Illusion’, I can’t wait to hear what other genres and styles he explores next.

Catch the song here:

Adam Lanceley donates proceeds from new album to charity

London based singer songwriter, Adam Lanceley, is releasing his latest record, Back To The Sunshine, from which he is donating all sales to The Brain and Spine Foundation, a charity that is close to Adam’s heart.

During his childhood, Adam was involved in a serious car crash that left him with severe head injuries. His parents worried as Doctors told them Adam would never walk or talk again, but he managed to defy all the odds, recovering to such an extent that he now runs 10ks and has even completed the London Marathon for Brain and Spine.

Aside from running though, Adam turned to music to express a lot of the emotions he was feeling as he grew up and quickly found that he had an affinity for punchy, yet cryptic lyrics.

With 5 albums to his name already, ‘Back To The Sunshine’ picks up where Adam left off last time, continuing to develop his summery guitar led sound that is best exhibited on the new single, ‘A Film We All Saw.’ Lightly strummed chords transport listeners away to brighter days, something Adam tries to encapsulate in his ‘West Coast’ sound.

Whilst artists’ previous and personal experiences are often the bases of their songwriting, Adam has delved deep into his childhood to memorable locations like Devon and Yorkshire for many of the ideas on the new EP. Creating a mystical grandeur of time through these memories, there is a depth of field and subtext to Adam’s music beyond the instrumentation.

Eden Royals Return with New EP

Essex based indie-pop quartet, Eden Royals, are back exploring the ‘getting by’ lifestyle of the everyday in their new EP, Time Won’t Wait.

It’s been over a year since the band last released a track, but they’ve stuck to their guitar led sound, full of pop hooks and nifty musicianship. All this paired with the well-crafted lyrics of front-man, Lloyd Buck, make for a potent musical combination.

Over the past year, the boys have been touring in America with 90s cult band, Third Eye Blind, and they’ve even performed on the same stage as Bastille and King Krule back in 2015 at Liverpool Sound City Festival. Constantly building their live experiences, you know that Eden Royals will be set to share their new EP on the stage when it comes out March 10th.

With varying musical backgrounds, the boys each bring something different to the set up of the band. John has experience playing in a Beatles tribute band, whilst Lloyd has found fame featuring in music videos for Paul McCartney and Pete Doherty. However, as a band, Eden Royals have seen themselves on BBC Introducing Essex and This Morning.

The EP isn’t out yet but you can watch the video for Eden Royals’ last single ‘Close To The Sun’ here:

The New Album From Matt Boroff

American born, but Austrian based musician-extraordinaire, Matt Boroff, is back with his third album to date, Grand Delusion, which is a tour de force from start to finish.

Having rubbed shoulders with some of the best in the business back in the 90s and sharing stages with the likes of Nirvana and Kyuss, Matt is a musician with a wealth of experience in his hands. Since then, after the dissolution of his high-school band in 1995, Matt has been focusing on honing his craftsmanship as a songwriter, going on to form Matt Boroff and The Mirrors.

‘What A Shame’ is a highlight from the album, showing just what Matt is capable of. Opening with a desert-esque blues intro, Matt drops the song into walls of distorted guitar and pounding drums, eventually evolving the track into some kind of 90s grunge, modern rock hybrid. It’s quite the beast.

The group toured Europe extensively, sharing the bills with rock titans such as Queens Of The Stone Age, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Calexico. However in 2010, Boroff decided to go solo, releasing two solo LPs, one EP and now ‘Grand Delusion’ which is set for release May 5th.

Matt will be performing a headline show in London at the Old Blue Last February 6th.
