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!

The Princess of DIY Pop – Linah set to release peppy single ‘This Is What You Get’

A bit of a different sound than our usual stuff but we love it! 

Multifaceted pop songstress Linah is demonstrating her songwriting and production skills with her exhilarating debut single ‘This Is What You Get’

Having taught herself the art of mastering her own tracks in the studio as well as performing and writing them, Linah is a quirky young woman who impresses her audience with an extraordinary amount of energy and talent.  She supported American R&B artist Anthony Hamilton at the O2 in London in 2012 and is now ready to roll on to foster her own musical career.

‘This Is What You Get’ is a catchy pop song that the singer wrote about how relationships with boyfriends, family or friends can turn out to be difficult sometimes and the lyrics derived from there. “I started to think of all the times I’ve been in a relationship with someone who didn’t treat me the way I’d liked to have been treated”, she explains.

Listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peL15x9cCWU

Linah hasn’t always been as outgoing as she is now. As a child, she suffered from speech impediment and severe anxiety which gave her a hard time at school. The singer mostly kept to herself and was only ever really comfortable around animals. “I got picked on throughout my school years and had no friends for a good few years”, she says. The hardship of not fitting in eventually propelled her to start making music. Linah remembers: “I started to teach myself how to sing at eight years of age by mimicking all these fabulous singers I heard on the radio. I really found solitude and home in music as I didn’t fit in anywhere and I sure didn’t want to!” Her talent and artistic characteristics have always been visible. At school she was once voted “Most Likely To Make It As A Singer”.

Like for so many young girls at the time, her first real musical inspiration and the reason she wanted to become a singer were the Spice Girls. However, it wasn’t until she discovered the king of pop, Michael Jackson, that her whole world would turn upside down and she’d give herself completely into working on a musical career for herself. “He hypnotised me! To me, he was a god of music. It seemed as though he was channelling the very source of sound and performing it to everyone of us in a language we could all understand!”

She drew a lot of inspiration from artists like James Brown or Diana Ross. But she has always been open to discovering new genres and remembers being a lot into bands like Rage Against The Machine at one point during her adolescence.

However, her love for catchy pop tunes has eventually taken over in the creation of her own songs.

 

The single ‘This Is What You Get’ is out on 3rd May 2016.

 

Dates:

21st April – the Alley Cats Bar, Denmark Street

24th April – Allsortz, Rich Mix Shoreditch

6th May – Scented songs, Waterloo station

Pluggedin Switched on:

– Cafe 1001 9pm

– The Blueberry Bar 22nd June (9pm), London

– The Church 30th June (10pm)
