Music to truly take your breath away. An artist who feels extremely present, yet thinks more deeply than any moment we can see, and is somewhat untouchable in his travels and tours around the world. This is Joshua James. We’re talking about him today as he is currently on tour in Europe, with his band, and … Continued

There is no way to begin, and absolutely no sane way to end. Sharon Van Etten is a talent that leaves us begging for more. An absolute pleasure to hear, see, and experience. Power ballad, pop rock, lyrical bliss, depth, angst, dance, devour, absolute artistry, raw, real, devoted and pure. In a nut shell; we’re completely … Continued

The wonderful way of the web – someone shares a festival they’re playing at, you visit said festivals website to see what it’s all about, you wind up sifting through the line-up for names you haven’t heard of, faces you don’t recognize. Suddenly you’re immersed in a sea of undiscovered beauty. Empress Of appeared to … Continued

On first listen, it’s electro-pop, fused with 60’s melodies; which is cool, nothing particularly groundbreaking, but sounds pretty awesome. Then a lyric catches your attention, and then another, and suddenly you find yourself watching the video three times in a row to actually make sure you’ve not got the wrong end of the stick. There’s … Continued

I’m not sure sometimes what it is about a band that makes you want to hear everything they’ve ever written. In this case, I wanted in particular to see more of their videos – there seems to be a genuine, effortless passion to their performance. It seems real, intriguing, and a little intimidating. What is … Continued

What can we say – we struck gold when we discovered this album. So genuinely refreshing to hear a stylish yet natural voice, expressed with such conviction and passion, and perfectly placed over a stunning set of summer vibes. This is Reggae, Roots, and Soul, at their very best; back the way they were meant to be – with meaning, … Continued

That sweet moment when stylish, quick fire, smart hip-hop is fused with a classic simple beat and a quality distorted guitar. Keeping you on your toes; brand new music from The Scribes. ‘A Story all about How’ opens with ‘Dragon Breath’, the first track we heard from it; simple yet effective, and it only gets better from … Continued

An overcast, dreary, very British Tuesday; a good day to talk about an exciting alternative band from Sydney, Australia. The Sunpilots. We’re absolutely loving this sound. They’re kind of fusing the whole alternative rock thing, (think Incubus, Queens of the Stone Age, System of a Down) with an almost Kate Bush kind of artistry. Lyrically, melodically, … Continued

‘I’ll Try Till I Die’ is a 2015 release from songwriter and guitarist Phillip Foxley. The project is one that shows impressive variation in songwriting style throughout, with both the music and the subject matter changing and evolving as each song takes place – a real showcase of experience and skill. Immensely thoughtful, non-conformist lyrics, firmly place … Continued

When genre becomes irrelevant; when a vocal is so smooth and compelling, so stylish and sweet; so brand new sounding in a heavily electronic era. Just 8 seconds into ‘Keep us Together‘ and we were hooked. A bouncy, joyful, summer vibe; energetic and fairly organic – that genuine live band sound. A really great song. Then … Continued
