Disturbing new Video from Mavis Victory Project. We Like!

Blimey. We didn’t expect that. On paper, the inventively-monikered Mavis Victory Project come across as a bit Arctic Monkeys – edgy without being sharp enough to cut yourself particularly seriously. We may have been mistaken.

We’re not entirely certain we know what’s going on in the video. The singer, one of four brothers in the band, starts off horizontal, much in the same way he sings but he seems to have invited some unusual friends over. If they were banning videos purely for being suggestive, this would have to be buried at sea. Somehow, even though it’s largely down to some saucy looks given by the ladies in the video, we feel utterly filthy. What’s happened to us?!

As we progress, we end up in a warehouse populated with torch-bearing hooded sorts with the odd flag being wafted. We’ve gone on holiday by mistake, as it says in the film. Has this anything to do with the song or is the whole thing signing us up for conscription to a life in a dodgy cult. We’re going along with it, anything for a bit of sleaze.

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:

Corinna Jane’s Rock-Infused ‘Three Faces of You’

Corinna Jane is making waves in the popular music scene with her unmistakably individual rock-pop style, which is best exhibited on her latest guitar driven single, ‘Three Faces of You’.

Having grown up in the MTV era of the 90s, Corinna has always been drawn to music and by the age of five she was already taking singing and piano lessons. It wasn’t long after that she began writing her own songs as a teenager and finding her own unique style as a musician.

‘Three Faces of You’ is a stormer of a track blending clever lyricism on Corinna’s part, along with an intriguing blend of violins and electric guitar. The track focuses on a former relationship with someone who seemed to live in their own fantasy world, with unpredictable tendencies. Consequently, Corinna’s track has a true, relatable meaning to it as well as features of quality musicianship and songwriting.

The keen actress, model and radio presenter has a quirky style and personality, which has led to her receiving airplay on the likes of BBC Radio 6, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing and making the top 5 solo artists at the Rock The House Competition.

Adam Lanceley- ‘Those Rose Tinted Days’

London based singer-songwriter Adam Lanceley has returned with his fifth album, Postcards from Then, which features the summer-vibe fuelled track, ‘Those Rose Tinted Days’.

After being involved in a tragic car crash at the age of ten, Adam was given little hope of survival and was told he would at least never walk again. However, his determination has helped him overcome life’s obstacles and since then has focused his attention towards penning his feelings down through the cathartic medium of songwriting.

Along with his large back catalogue of five albums to his name, Adam has also ran the London marathon for the Brain and Spine Foundation with whom he raises money since his head injury.

Adam favours unusual instrumentation and a spur-of-the-moment song writing ethos that embraces deep emotions in the same way that the delivery of his songs does.

‘Those Rose Tinted Days’ is a powerful, reminiscent anthem driven by sun-drenched guitar riffs and backed up with Adam’s punchy vocal stylings that reflect his honest and considered approach towards music. When it comes to lyrical inspiration, Adam’s mantra ‘as long as it means something to you’ makes itself evident through contemplative topics and cryptic poetics.

Be taken to a place far away with Goldsands new single ‘ A Place Far Away’

goldsands-a-place-far-away-promo2

 

‘A Place Far Away’ is out September 30th

Their latest single ‘A Place Far Away’ tells the story of a faded film star’s unlikely bond with a neglected young woman after crossing paths in Tokyo, drawing inspiration from cult classic movie Lost in Translation.

 Self-produced in a converted apartment in Birmingham, the track was later mastered by Geoff Pesche at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.

Goldsands’ genre-defying sound is most comparable to groups like Radiohead, The Beatles and Coldplay, and is the result of the band members’ eclectic musical backgrounds. Liam’s rock background provides a driving groove, Tom brings a jazz flare, Ramsey takes his cue from the experimental sounds of the 60’s, James gives suitable guitar ambience and Matt is a sucker for a pop hook

Two of the bands members Matt and Tom Rhodes are brothers, adding to the group’s tight sense of synergy.

 The group are also embarking on a tour:

Tour Dates:

Thursday 29th September – Zigfrid’s Underbelly, London

Saturday 1st October – Actress and Bishop, Birmingham

Tuesday 4th October – The Zanzibar Club, Liverpool

Wednesday 5th October – Star and Garter, Manchester

Thursday 6th October – Bannerman’s Bar, Edinburgh

Friday 7th October – 360 Club, Leeds

Saturday 8th October – Chameleon Arts Café, Nottingham

Wednesday 2nd November – LS6, Leeds

Friday 11th November – 02 Academy 2 Islington, London

Friday 9th December – The Workshop, London

Friday 16th December – O2 Academy 3, Birmingham

Andrea Di Giovanni returns with new emotionally-driven pop single ‘Hold Me Once More’ and new EP Soultrip

21-year-old Italian-born pop singer Andrea Di Giovanni delivers another fun and equally heart-wrenching single straight off his new EP Soultrip.

Listen to the track:  

As the singer explains: ‘Hold Me Once More’ is the first song I ever wrote in English, 3 years ago. It talks about the relationship between me and my dad during my childhood and the lack of love and communication I perceived within it.

In the lyrics of this tune I am quite straight forward, telling him what I have been through, which I never had the courage to do in person.

The single follows Andrea’s previous emotive electro-pop single ‘I’ll Take Care of Myself’.

Both tracks will appear on the singer’s new EP Soultrip, which tackles an array of personal topics such as Andrea’s relationship with his father, exploring his bisexuality, as well as overcoming his experiences with vitiligo.

As the title explains’ states Andrea, ‘it’s a journey into the deepest corners of my soul, starting with the relationship with my dad, going into the very first time I fell in love with a guy, to my first experience in a gay relationship to the relationship with my ex best friend (actual girlfriend now). The progression of concepts for the EP is: absence, lust, apathy, awareness and resolution.

‘Hold Me Once More’ was released on June 15th

Groovy indie outfit The Northcoast release dazzling single ‘With You’

“With You is the perfect musical mix of dance, synthpop and indie sheen. Its bubbly rhythm-driving guitar riff feels lifted from “Songs from the Big Chair” or “Purple Rain”, bouncing with the same excitement that Michael Jackson’s guitarists brought to their hits in the 1980s” – Mitch Mosk (CEO Atwood Magazine)

Hailing from different locations across the north coast of America, The Northcoast’s three members come from New York, New Jersey and Seattle. They are the perfect example of how distance is no barrier to making music and with the aid of technology they have been emailing projects to each other and making music for over 10 years.

“With You” is their latest sparkly single, produced by Tom Lord-Alge, and is the perfect accompaniment to a long road trip or lazing on the grass on a summer’s day.

Watch/Listen to “With You” here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJ1Hy4r7irM&feature=youtu.be

Each member of the group has played at least three instruments since childhood and this, combined with their multi-cultural backgrounds, has given the group a plethora of musical influences and experience. Combining the pumping beats of Michael Jackson and bass lines of Passion Pit and Chvrches, there really is something for everyone to enjoy.

The Northcoast have realised their childhood dream of both making and performing music. Having made an impact on the stages of Vans Warped Tour and played alongside big names such as Gia Farrell, their future is already looking bright!
