Dodie’s headlining show at The Old Fire Station, Bournemouth was to support the release of her debut EP ‘Intertwined‘. Alongside her was Rusty Clanton, another YouTuber from Nashville. These two fitted together seamlessly and stole the attention of everyone in the room. The venue was lovely; perfect for two twinkly indie singers. It was packed from front to back, with people (like me) sitting on top of tables in order to see the stage.
Chef’Special have released a music video for their new feel-good song ‘Amígo’ from their forthcoming album. The video was filmed by Reel Bear Media on twenty one pilots’ Emotional Roadshow Tour. Take a peek into life on the road in the video below.
Finding Miranda is an indie pop-rock quartet that formed in 2012. The band, consisting of Chay Appleyard (lead vocals, acoustic guitars), Lee Tallon (lead guitar), Jimmy Sallows (bass guitar) and Tony Buckley (drums), have since released EP’s and have played venues across Essex, Suffolk and London.
I heard ‘Ivory’ on Spotify sometime last year and since that moment I’ve been a fan of Adam French. His music is brilliant – you’ll be singing along in no time. With a headline UK tour coming up next year and two new songs available now it’s a perfect time to start listening to his music. After battling with technology, and after a long night in the studio, Adam took the time to talk to me about his experience in Africa, the inspiration behind his writing and his upcoming UK tour.
Pop duo The Score shot into the limelight after ASDA used their song ‘Oh My Love’ in their advert. It took the #1 spot on the Spotify UK Viral Chart and the #4 spot on the iTunes UK pop charts, going on to become the second most Shazam’d song in the UK. Following the success of the single the band were signed to Republic Records and following the release of their EP they played their first UK show at The Borderline in London. Sonically similar to bands like OneRepublic, American Authors and The Script, their EP showcases their feel-good, get up and dance vibe. The duo is made up of Eddie Anthony, vocals and guitar, and Edan Dover, keys and production, I was lucky enough to organise an interview with them before the show and was struck by how down-to-earth they are.
Although this album may not be a brand new release, I couldn’t not write a review. For some strange reason I have only just discovered the brilliance of Twenty One Pilots, I’m just glad I finally have because they really are amazing. Quirky and individual, their sound stands out from others and really can’t be labelled. There isn’t anyone, as far as I know, making music like this. I feel it’s my duty to make sure as many people as possible listen to their music, it’s something you can’t miss out on. Continue reading “Blurryface – Twenty One Pilots”
Lana Del Rey is an American singer, songwriter and actress. Her unique sound has won fans over in the past with singles like ‘Video Games’ and ‘Summertime Sadness’. Musically she draws influence from the greats of every genre of music, which can be heard in her songs. I think this is especially true of Amy Winehouse, although the two are stylistically very different there is a lot of similarities bringing them together. Del Rey has released the title track of her new album ‘Honeymoon’. Continue reading “Honeymoon – Lana Del Rey”
‘Young Blood’ is the debut album from Saint Raymond, aka Callum Burrows from Nottingham. There are quite a few brilliant artists coming from Nottingham right now (Amber Run instantly spring to mind) and Saint Raymond is no different; I have fallen in love. The album has such a brilliant sound that I can’t really place, but I can say it’s fabulous. Continue reading “Young Blood – Saint Raymond”
‘Go Big Or Go Home’ is the new single released by American rock band American Authors. They’ve said recently in interviews they don’t feel pressured by the success of their debut album, particularly their hit single ‘Best Day Of My Life’. After listening to this song you can understand why; looks like writing amazing songs is their forte.
