I can’t think of a better way to kick off our new feature, Sing Something Saturday, than with Daisy Clark. With over 40,000 subscribers, this 19-year-old singer-songwriter from the UK has a large following for a reason.
Twenty One Pilots‘ second studio album, ‘Vessel’ turns 5 years old today. It was the first album I heard from the dynamic duo and its the reason I’m so in love with them. ‘Vessel’ is an eclectic mix of alt-rock, rap and ukuleles. This album is impossible to pin down; some songs are heavy on synths, whereas some are stripped back completely. It is this versatility that makes this album so loved by people with all musical taste.
Abbey Glover caught my attention with her original song ‘I Wish You Liked Girls’ and I’m not alone. This YouTube singer has over 100,000 subscribers and that video has nearly 1 million views. This new upload, ‘Lie to Me’, is raw and emotional and as beautiful as every song Glover shares with her fans.
Jesse Rutherford, singer of The Neighbourhood, drops his debut major label solo album ‘&’ and it’s as beautifully odd as you would expect. Any fan of The Neighbourhood knows that their sound is eclectic and exciting; they explore and combine a range of genres creating an original and exciting sound. In this solo venture, Jesse demonstrates his own style bringing in sounds from pop, electronic and rap.
On October 7th, Like Moths to Flames released their new song ‘Dark Divine’ ahead of their album release November 3rd. The song demonstrates a new sound which really highlights the talent of the band. If you’re a fan of the scene then you have to give this song a listen.
PVRIS released their sophomore album ‘All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell’ towards the end of August this year. Singles ‘Heaven’ and ‘What’s Wrong’ really helped give fans a taste of what was to come, but the album really blew those expectations out of the water.
Despite having been a fan of Picturesque since first hearing ‘Just Exist’ a few years ago, ‘Back To Beautiful’ slipped under the radar for an embarrassingly long time. Picturesque blend post-hardcore, pop and rock in their impressive debut album, creating a unique sound helped by the mind-blowing vocal range of singer Kyle Hollis.
The Talking Heads is a treasure hidden away in the streets of Southampton. Last night, one of their two deceivingly large rooms was host to an amazing show from 4 pop-punk bands. Each band was fantastic, with the crowd really getting behind every performance. The first night of tour is off to a flying start for Trash Boat, Broadside and Homebound.
Being As An Ocean release their first album independent of any label. ‘Waiting For Morning To Come’ is their strongest release yet, emotionally gripping and beautifully delivered. The combination of screaming, spoken word and soft singing creates the perfect storm that is full of emotion that the listener can’t help but feel. This album is a must for any music fan.
Neck Deep have been building anticipation for their latest album ‘The Peace and The Panic’ for months with the release of some brilliant singles. Their evolution has truly shown what this band are made of, refining their sound further and really pushing the boundaries of genre. Whilst some fans have initially been unhappy with this change, it seems to me this is for the better.
