Douglas McGuire Delivers Summer Anthem, ‘Island’

Alternative-pop singer-songwriter DOUGLAS MCGUIRE shares his brand new new summer anthem ‘Island’. Having collaborated with Grammy award-winning engineer James Auwarter of Coda Room Audio (Kanye West, Rhianna, Jay-Z, amongst others), McGuire creates fun and uplifting material that connects to his listeners, largely due to the dedication and commitment that can be heard in every word he sings.

Speaking more on the release, Douglas explains: “This song is the final in a trilogy of songs about a girl I only dated for a couple of weeks, but who had a very profound impact on me and my life. The lyrics carry strong nautical themes, which collectively come to represent the ups and downs of the relationship I once had, and where I am right now in life as well as with respect to the relationship I had with this girl.”

Born in Croydon, and raised in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, the France-based producer/singer-songwriter has been described by fans and professionals alike as Taylor Swift/The 1975 hybrid – with a distinctive, sombre, and smooth vocal tonality and an endearing honesty behind his lyrics, juxtaposed with major, uplifting chord progressions that have an undeniable mainstream appeal.

Upcoming Release: Deep – Yeti Love

Yeti Love

Alternative folk duo YETI LOVE will be releasing their latest single Deep on 7th September. This is the first release from their self-titled debut album out in late September, two weeks after the single.

Formed in 2012, Peter Hamilton and Dave Sears have crafted and perfected their heavenly folksy trademark (which they called alt-rogue-folk-rock), featured in their previous track, Lonely Road. The soft folk rockers have taken this one-of-the-kind approach in their forthcoming offering, coupled with strong messages of the ills of today’s society.

As well as having a single and an album in the pipeline, plus an album promotion tour from late September, YETI LOVE have been organising their own festival, The Air Balloon Garden Party, taking place at Rickman Hill Park (Coulson, Surrey) on 29th-30th August.

For future tour dates, please visit their website…but before you take a detour, have a listen to the ever-so-soothing Deep.
