New Music Video: Go Down – Bella Loka

BELLA LOKA unleashed their brand-new music video for ‘Go Down’, the lead track from the forthcoming debut album, ‘The Light, The Mud & The Dark’, set to be released via DEFDISCO on 28th April 2017.

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios with in-house producers Rob Cass & Pearse MacIntyre, ‘Go Down’ contrasts ethereal, seductive vocals with a pumping monster-hook chorus and filtered, broken guitars and synths.

The sinister video was produced, directed and edited by singer/songwriter Tea Boothby, whose artistic vision extends to creating all of BELLA LOKA‘s music videos, artwork, and live visuals.

‘Go Down’ will be an instant gratification download with pre-orders of the album available from yesterday. There’s also the opportunity to explore the upcoming album through an interactive choose-your-own-adventure game on YouTube called ‘Colin: The Chicken & The Egg’, where you get to decide the fate of the characters Colin and The Blue Miner as they seek to survive the night, save the town, and avoid one of many unfortunate demises!

But before you head off for the game, have a sneak peek of the video.

New Track: Haters – Line Mari

LINE MARI released her latest single, Haters, which displays the Norwegian newcomer  laying her gorgeously wispy vocals over brooding and heartfelt pianos before erupting into a soaring chorus to a backdrop of tropical-tinged synths.

Line was born in Tromsø, also living for some time in Svalbard, one of the most Northerly inhabited places in the world. As a child, she grew up regularly witnessing the beauty of the Northern Lights, as well as once having a close encounter with a polar bear whilst at Kindergarten.

A highly versatile musician, Line not only sings and writes her own music, she also plays a number of instruments including guitar, piano and harmonica (she is currently also learning to play the fiddle). She has a keen interest in vintage music and vintage guitars and owns several custom-made guitars and her own custom-made pedal-board.

Haters and previous single Crush are set to appear on Line’s upcoming album, which fans can grab hold of this month. The album was recorded at the legendary Abbey Roads studio, recorded with major producer Rob Cass and electronica producer Pearse MacIntyre.

So here’s some words of encouragement; have a listen to Haters.

Music Video: Well Done – Bella Loka

well-done-bella-loka

Husband and wife team BELLA LOKA return with a kaleidoscopic music video to double A-single Well Done, released last month.

Produced by singer/songwriter Tea Boothby, the three-and-a-half-minute production reflects the duo’s visual representation of the mental disorientation they experienced upon moving to London from their hometown of Bristol in order to further their music career.

The song describes the virtual wilderness Tea & David found themselves in after deciding to move on from their Bristol-based indie-rock band and re-invent as a Camden-based electronic alt-pop duo recording with in-house producers Rob Cass & Pearse MacIntyre at Abbey Road Studios.

Despite its traumatic origins the song is relentlessly upbeat, with singer Tea determined to “turn my pain into a song” and choosing to listen to the voice that says, “Well done, you’ve made it this far… you’re gonna make it out.”

You gonna need your sunglasses for this one…check the video for Well Done.

Song of the Day: Summer Night On Fairytale Land – Pedro Syrah

Pedro Syrah Summer Night on Fairytale land

Singer-songwriter and guitarist PEDRO SYRAH prepares for the release of his new album Fairytale Land with this intimate new track Summer Night On Fairytale Land.

The Portugal-born crooner  has already played in esteemed Lisbon venues such as the mighty Aula Magna and now hopes to take his fresh and exciting sound beyond his birthplace. A creative guitarist, he draws a lot of influence from classical music, also playing with unconventional tunings to form a unique sound that is entirely his own.

His upcoming album is set to centre around a variety of personal themes including love stories, the loss of friends and a road trip he took in California. Pedro has described his sound as ‘an immersive experience into ourselves and our feelings’.

With recording set to take place in Abbey Road studio with Sean Magee, Fairytale Land is sure to take this sound to new levels. His music is likely to appeal to fans of indie-folk artists including Ben Howard, Damien Rice, The National and Jamie Cullum.

Fairytale Land is out October…for now, watch the video to the latest single, Summer Night on Fairytale Land.
