‘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.

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 Sherlocks release indie dance floor filler ‘Will You Be There?’

The Sheffield 4-piece band consisting of two sets of brothers, The Sherlocks, have just released their new single ‘Will You Be There?’ on 15th September. The lads have stood out since day one by being the first unsigned band since Arctic Monkeys to sell out their local venue the Sheffield Leadmill.

‘Will You Be There?’ is a definite indie dance floor filler with a prominent drum beat, heavy guitar riffs and catchy chorus.

Drummer Brandon Cook describes the track as being; “about the notion of when you’re doing well and everybody wants to know you and cling on to you… As opposed to when you’re going through a rough time and most people jump off board and forget you. Who will be the ones still with you because they truly believe in what you’re doing as much as you? ‘Will You Be There?’ seemed like the title to sum the whole meaning up really.”

Farewell to The Enemy

After ten years, one of Britain’s best loved, home grown indie talents have announced they will disband in 2016.

Since forming in Coventry in 2006, The Enemy hae produced three Top 10 albums and 2015 release, It’s Automatic, which peaked at Number 21 in the UK charts. Early successes include the debut single ‘40 days, 40 nights’ selling out all 1000 copies of its limited 7” in under 24 hours; platinum debut album We’ll Live and Die in These Towns charting at Number 1 with singles ‘Away From Here’ (Top 10) and ‘Had Enough’ (Top 5) gaining the band an army of loyal fans. The second album Music For The People was released in 2009 and charted atNumber 2, achieving gold status, and third full length Streets In The Sky (2012) shot straight into the Top 10. Industry recognition in the form of a Q Award (Best New Act), XFM Award (Best British Debut Album) andNME Award (Best New Band) coupled with strong record sales (1,000,000 to date) and passionate live performances on sell out tours are just a few highlights from The Enemy’s decade together.

“As we stand on stage for the last few times on this tour, I’ll be cherishing the last fleeting moments of a decade that has shaped who we all are, bands and fans alike. We all know what we’ll be sharing. Come, bring your hearts, bring your lungs and leave with our songs, take them onto the streets and into your lives and keep them alive for us forever”.
