Kinky Dove ready to rock out with their 3 track release

3 track release set to be unleashed on June 15th

Born in in Australia but now living in London, Kindy Dove is the musical moniker of frontman Scott Wade and his evolving collective of musicians. Progenitors of gritty, driving rock, the group are readying themselves for a fresh assault on the music industry with a brand new three track EP.

Their particular brand of rock and roll, defined in many ways by the bluesy, post-rock growl of Wade on vocals, is currently in short supply both nationally and globally, and Kinky Dove are now looking to redress that balance.

For a taste of their punchy style, check out the video to EP track ‘Some Kind of Fool’, featuring an epic slap-happy montage of Hollywood moments.

The EP also features a remix/cover version of classic 1978 track ‘Another Girl Another Planet’ by The Only Ones – in this case titled simply ‘Another Girl’.

There is also a trance remix of ‘It’s Called Heartache’ on the EP. You can find the video for this at

The EP is online at

Produced by Chris Kimsey, previously of Olympic Studios, the EP marks Kinky Dove out as one of the earthiest rock bands on the scene. Fans of Scott Wade and Kinky Dove before they began working together, the producer clicked with the style and heights straight away at which the music was aiming, and helped mould that vision into the musical reality that Kinky Dove has become.

The CD was mixed by Wade. Studio legend Phill Brown loved the sound of the CD, commenting that the mixes were “open and alive.”

The resulting EP is a continuation of form from previous album ‘Kinky Dove vol. 1’, and the latest step in Kinky Dove’s  climb.

Brand new ShadowIcon EP is more than ‘Smoke & Mirrors’

Innovative double CD release features a 2nd CD of instrumental versions out March 16th

Capture

Born and raised in Slovenia, ShadowIcon are a six piece melodic metal band with a heavy impact and a compelling lead female vocalist. Taking elements from metal and thrash, but marrying them to a tuneful vocal and a great appreciation for a stylish groove, the  band serve up a potent blend of heaviness on new EP ‘Smoke and Mirrors’.

Their previous album ‘Empire in Ruins’ picked up excellent reviews around Europe and the US, now they’re back with a brand new EP totalling six epic songs, plus instrumental/karaoke versions so fans can sing along at home.

For a taste of what ShadowIcon are all about, check out their moody video for EP track ‘If I Was the One’ which is out on March 9th.

Mixed and mastered by Charlie Bauerfeind and Thomas Geiger (Helloween, Blind Guardian) the EP was released on December 15th. Designed to build on the new, melodic metal sound of the debut album, the songs are a fusion of different tastes and styles from the band’s three songwriters, all blending into great cocktail of pounding drums, searing guitars and piercing vocals.

With over 50,000 fans already on Facebook, this is a band who have already come a long way. And, judging by this EP, there’s nothing that can stop them any time soon.

The ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ EP is out March 16th.

Fireproof Giant release new Single!

Fireproof Giant find ‘A Place to Start’ with debut EPFireproof Giant Logo

 

Hot off the Circus, the EP is now available from bandcamp.com

 

Having been described as a “terrific four piece band” (The Times) whose music is “intense, haunting and pulsating” (The Independent), it is sure enough that Fireproof Giant are experiencing a whirlwind of recognition with the release of highly anticipated EP ‘A Place to Start’.

The EP has a refreshing, poignant sound with honest lyrical and musical influences. The soulful, charming vocals make for a relaxing composition which leaves the audience truly captivated. It is no surprise the EP is receiving such positive appreciation from fellow musicians including Coldplay front man, Chris Martin.

The EP opens with ‘Pandora’, an eerie, hypnotic piece which intrigues the listener, giving a taste of what else is on offer. Other tracks, ‘Gather You’ and ‘Cover Up’ are more upbeat with intricate guitar riffs and catchy hooks. However, title track, ‘A Place to Start’, is a powerful and moving piece about starting over again which includes a melodic piano and double bass accompaniment to give the single a more layered tone. Having been mastered by Andy ‘Hippy’ Baldwin (Blur, Mark Ronson, The Who), the EP has a top quality, solid sound production.

 

The idea behind Fireproof Giant came from front man, Gareth Jones, who was writing and performing with Nofit State Circus, collaborating with numerous musicians from a variety of cultures globally. Audience demand for more music and live performances increased, resulting in the conception of Fireproof Giant. After touring with the circus and live theatre for 6 years the group decided to leave and pursue their musical ambitions producing raw, original and sincere pieces.

 

Fireproof Giant’s wealth of experience has seen their music played on Channel 4, S4C, BBC radio 2 and BBC London; with vast potential and support, 2014 could well be their year.

 

Fireproof Giant:

Gareth Jones – Lead vocals, guitar, piano, accordion, glockenspiel

Ashley John Long – Double bass, backing vocals

Joel Rees – Drums, trumpet, backing vocals

Cat Jones – Violin, backing vocals
