Song of the Day: Gladiolus – Yvonne Hercules

Singer and self-taught musician YVONNE HERCULES drops her stunning cross-genre single entitled ‘Gladiolus’ into today’s hotspot.

Encompassing of old school blues with a little folk and alternative music, ‘Gladiolus’ explores the movement of Winter into Spring and how this metaphorically corresponds to a journey from a place of death into a place of life or hope. The thought-provoking lyrics are reinforced by Yvonne’s haunting and well-poised vocal.

‘Gladiolus’ is taken from her new EP of the same name and follows her single ‘Roving’, which  received support from Clash magazine, Line of Best Fit, Afropunk, BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and others.

This is absolutely breathtaking…have a listen to ‘Gladiolus’

Song of the Day: Sad and Bored – Bülow (ft. DUCKWRTH)

Critically acclaimed German born pop iconoclast BÜLOW presents her melancholic single ‘Sad and Bored, taken from her latest EP, ‘Damaged’, released earlier the month.

Beyond ‘Sad and Bored’, the EP will boast the stark and soulful ‘You & Jennifer’ as well as the shimmering and vulnerable “Honor Roll”, full track listing below. This summer, she takes this enigmatic sound on the road, launching a full-scale European festival takeover.

After releasing her powerful debut ‘Damaged Vol. 1’, BÜLOW has instantly resonated with critics and new fans alike. With her first ever single going straight to the top of the charts, BÜLOW has announced to the world that she has arrived.

The tracks ‘Like This Guy’, ‘Lines’, and ‘Not A Love Song’ have clocked over 30 million streams, reaching the Spotify Global Viral chart and earning praise as “beautifully crafted” (NME), “pop genius” (Noisey), and a “star in the making” (Pigeon & Planes).

A child of the globe, the bright-eyed young singer has grown up in five countries including Canada, Germany, the UK, the US, and is currently finishing high-school in The Netherlands. Although BÜLOW has only just begun her musical journey with these three sentimental, playful, and haunting tracks, “Damaged Vol 1” stands tall as an impressive flag-bearer for things to come….

Song of the Day: I Hate To See You This Way – Van Bellman

If you’re a fan of real gritty rock music with a kick of funk, well Zac Taylor – aka –  VAN BELLMAN‘s first single, ‘I Hate To See You This Way’ may well be your new favourite.

The theme of ‘I Hate To See You This Way’ focuses on the pain of watching someone you love go down a dark road, witnessing them self-destruct. “It means a lot to me as both a lyrical and sonic story,” said Taylor, who also produced the track at the legendary Mission Sound Studios in Brooklyn. With influences from Kurt Cobain to Jeff Buckley,  Taylor’s offering possesses the accusatory growl of the chorus which instantly pulls you into the sensitive moments in between the roars.

The Brooklyn-based musician, who once played the guitar with multi-platinum band American Authors, is shaping to be a respected collaborator and songwriter in the NYC music scene.
So sure to look out for VAN BELLMAN as he comes at you with boisterous tunes with hard-hitting lyrics one by one….
