Upcoming Release: New Man – Warme

New Man Warme

British five-piece rock outfit WARME takes a detour with their forthcoming single, New Man, taken from their album, Council House Opera out on 25th February.

Usually taking on the image of the Gallagher-esque two finger salute, the Bradford rockers venture into a more sentimental side of rock music. Featuring trance-like vocals with the alluringly hypnotic guitar riffs, their follow-up to previous effort, Council House Opera, is suited for those winter months ahead.

Band members Lee Walsh, Craig Hamilton, Jamie Hamilton, Macauley Haywood and Lewis Knight have been making their way up step by step, from supporting musicians such as Arthur Brown, Henry Rollins and The Strypes to playing in front of up to 25000 people at festivals. These down-to-Earth guys will be on the road again on 8th April at Star of Kings in Kings Cross, London. For further information on gigs, take a trip to their website.

New Man is set for release on 12th February…for now, watch the video

New Track! Do What You Like – Brothers Water

Do What you like

Chris Redgate (vocals), Ed Campbell (guitar), Joe Ashmore (guitar), Josh Thomas (drums) and Sean Luttman (bass)  – aka – indie rock band BROTHERS WATER reveal their new single, Do What You Like, taken from their debut EP, Your Name In Paint.

A distorted guitar takes centre stage in the four-minute reflective single, perfectly balancing the soothingly atmospheric arrangements. Describing their latest offering,  vocalist Chris Redgate said: “It’s a song about being betrayed, and how sometimes an apology doesn’t even come close to making it right.”

The EP was recorded at the Doghouse studio, Henley, under the guidance of Michaelis ‘MSM’ Michael (Skepta, Zak Abel) with help from Sticky Blood producers Andy Nicholson (Arctic Monkeys) and Jamie Shield. An early release of first single ‘Mascara’ has had airplay on Radio 1 and BBC Introducing, setting a precedent for what should be a noteworthy debut.

Your Name In Paint EP is set for release on 31 January 2016. For now, listen to Do What You Like.

EP Review: Do You Feel Electric? – Miss

miss

Fresh blood to the music scene, electronic rock duo MISS have released their entirely self-produced EP, Do You Feel Electric? last month.

Their four-track collection displays an avant-garde (and I have to say) a very dark approach to the aforementioned genres,  creating bitter-sweet volcanic bursts of excitement, well executed by the guitar and the piano (in Shelter).

Based in London and Sussex, these alternative rockers took a big gamble with their debut offering…and it could pay off quite handsomely. Show your support and take time out and listen to the EP.

Must Listens: Smokescreen (watch the video here), Shelter.

EP Review: House Above The Sun

house above the sun

Formerly known as The Healing, HOUSE ABOVE THE SUN have released their self-titled EP this week.

Following suit of their 2014 acclaimed EP, Childhood Home, the four-track offering displays a melodic presence of folk music that meets a real spine tingling, 70s-inspired rock – very reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac and Dr Hook. Sure to hit the spot with die-hard fans of these 70s cult bands.

Must Listens: Footsteps, Love’s Ugly Twin.

 

Upcoming Release: Release Me – The Phantom Sound

THE PHANTOM SOUND are ready to drop their latest effort, Release Me which is the 2nd single from their self-titled debut album out in October.

The indie rock/pop band is heavily influenced by frontman Marisa’s love for the late 70s and early 80s punk and new wave movements, gaining inspiration from artists such as David Bowie, Roxy Music, Blondie, The Ramones, and Duran Duran.

She’s been fortunate to work with several excellent and accomplished artists on this album. Ken Stringfellow of the Posies, Big Star, and R.E.M. is producing the album as well as playing on it. Clem Burke, drummer of Blondie, plays on several of the tracks and Pierre DeReeder, bass player from Rilo Kiley also contributes, among other talented musicians.

Her single, Get to Me, was the top voted song on Charlie Ashcroft’s Audition Show, and has had various radio plays around the U.S. and U.K. She wrote and recorded this album in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, and Paris. Originally from Los Angeles, Marisa now lives in London.

Release Me will be out in September…but for now, check it the striking video.
