Chris Andreucci releases exhilarating new EP ‘What Don’t Kill You’!

Chris Andreucci is set to take up the gauntlet laid down by fellow scots Lewis Capaldi and Paolo Nutini, and command radio waves on both sides of The Atlantic. The Glasgow-based Chris managed to bag himself a record deal with the Nashville label ‘Century Music Group’ in 2019, with the label’s president expressing huge admiration for Chris’s pristine musical talents.

Despite not yet releasing a full studio album, Chris has already performed at some of Scotland’s most prestigious venues like the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, where a little band called Oasis were first discovered. 2020 was set to be the year of Chris Andreucci, with plans for major festival dates, as well as his intention to move out to Nashville to try and conquer the American soundwaves, but COVID-19 intervened.

“2020 has been a crazy year. It was set to be a year full of highs – a performance at C2C Festival at The Hydro in Glasgow alongside my favourite artists such as Luke Combs, an EP launch and then a move out to
Nashville in July. But in reality, like so many other people, the year was filled with lows. All my shows were cancelled or rescheduled due to COVID and as a direct result of this my visa application fell through as I had
no activities lined up”. – Chris Andreucci

All of Chris’ plans for 2020 were thrown on the scrap heap, but he will not be deterred in fulfilling his boundless potential with the release of his new EP ‘What Don’t Kill You’.

What Don’t Kill You boasts an enormous range of instrumentation, with ragingly brisk electric guitars and thundering vocals on the opening track ‘Here Comes The Rain’. Complementing this sound is a more tender acoustic guitar on the track ‘Thunderstorms and Rain’.

Overall, it’s the songs ‘Tonight I’m Yours’ and ‘Freedom’ that are the EP’s procurement. This is where Chris Andreucci showcases his instinctive ability to craft powerful tales of modern day romance. This EP is very mercurial and covers all spheres of the emotional spectrum, from being very uplifting in ‘The Only Love That Never Broke My Heart’, to creating a devastating, sorrowful tale of a break-up in ‘Drinking Song’.

2020 was meant to be the year that Chris Andreucci broke into the mainstream and I believe if it wasn’t for COVID, he would have fulfilled his destiny. Still, I have a feeling that 2021 will be the year that Chris Andreucci joins the dynasty of great Scottish musicians who have conquered the world.

Track List

  1. Here Comes The Rain
  2. Tonight I’m Yours
  3. Drinking Song
  4. Thunderstorms & Rain
  5. The Only Love That Never Broke My Heart
  6. Freedom

Four Crooks have released indie rock EP ‘Black Magic’

Lockdown has certainly been a busy time for Four Crooks. The West-Midlands-based foursome gathered in a remote farmhouse to produce their EP which is now available to listen to below:

This indie band take inspiration from the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Catfish & The Bottlemen and The Black Keys. Their sound is gritty and raw but simultaneously presents their musical skill.

Consisting of Dave Morris (vocals/guitar), Eamonn Russell (guitar), Toby Barnett (bass) and Dan Quinton-Jones (drums), the band is made up of working-class music fanatics with a similar vision about how music should be played.

Their songs speak of substance abuse, relationships, and anxiety with a sense of realness that it’s hard to detach from. We look forward to hearing more from this emerging talent…

MeMe Detroit releases powerful rock single ‘Mean Rock n Roller’

Not only is MeMe Detriot’s sound a riveting mix of indie, grunge, rock and blues, they’re led by a woman who is undeniably independent (she has over 200 gigs under her belt) and fiercely willing to be herself. What’s not to love?

Despite having such an array of genre specifics, MeMe Detriot’s rock knowledge is classic and stringent. She is self-described as ‘Uplifting Angst’.

The band is made up of multi-skilled MeMe on vocals, guitars, bass and synth with Kallum McEwen on drums. This pair’s live shows are said to be delightfully immersive and energising.

Fans had the opportunity to feature in MeMe Detroit’s new video for ‘Mean Rock n Roller’. The duo describe it as suitably riotous and supplied with much-needed fresh grimy rock. Check it out below.

Aussie rising stars The Bonnie Doons to release new EP ‘The Betweeners’ on 20th November

The Brisbane-based five piece have teased the release of their upcoming EP ‘The Betweeners’ with their latest single ‘Fred’.

This song’s honest and blunt lyrics, depicting a malfunctioning relationship needing to be ended without guilt, stand it apart from blander singles. ‘Fred’ begins the countdown for The Bonnie Doons’ highly anticipated new album.

Boonie Doons give the 90s a showcase with their style of alternative rap and pop. ‘Fred’ offers classic chiming guitar chords intertwined with a fresh groove.

The music is perfect for stretching out and drenching the last of the sun from those crisp autumn mornings.

Similar to Ocean Alley, GUM and San Cisco, ‘The Betweeners’ creates a space where you can easily drift in the EP. The band’s new music leaves them in promising stead as the industry works on its return to live music, as soon as it’s safe to do so.

Thankfully, fans have ‘Fred’ to satisfy them until The Bonnie Doons can return in full force…

Released Today! The Colossal Heads

Revelling in the heavier side of indie rock, The Colossal Heads are a group on the rise who have been compared to artists such as Queens of the Stone Age, Incubus, Modest Mouse and Nirvana. These are not bands whose names should be taken lightly in terms of comparison – thankfully The Colossal Heads do them justice.

Those bands rose in the 90’s and early 2000’s due to a rock genre that had gone from being anti-establishment to part of the norm. In recent years the cycle has started again, and The Colossal Heads are here to shake things up once more. To offer further proof, check out the album lead track ‘Mammoths’.

Looking for Liam ready for you to ‘Take What You Need’ with new single

Exciting new track to be unleashed on June 1st

PRimage

A popular melodic rock group with echoes of Incubus with added rawness, Looking For Liam are an Essex based four piece band who have also been compared to the wide ranging indie sounds and created an anthemic fusion of Muse, Coldplay and Arctic Monkeys. That those acts are so eclectic in their approach gives you an idea of what is so special about Looking For Liam – their ability to write indie-rock music with a number of different styles and tropes.

Formed in 2010, they first gained momentum in 2011 with a Battle of the Bands competition win, BBC Introducing coverage and a debut EP. Since then they have added another Battle of the Bands contest victory plus an appearance at Brownstock Festival to their CV, and with new single ‘Take What You Need’ coming on June 1st their stock is set to rise further.

On the booming single, lead vocalist and songwriter Tom Harper-Ward had this to say:

“‘Take What You Need’ is a true representation of our sound and musical direction. We hope you enjoy it!”

Hear the track for yourself here:

Lyric video:

With four members who share a deep love for creating music, and tastes that overlap to create their varied indie back catalogue, Looking For Liam are a band who not only benefit from a great deal of talent at present, but the great potential to expand on it. That makes this band one of the most exciting in the UK right now.

Brilliantly self-produced, the track above is a great example of their layered and intricate approach to songwriting, with heavier moments acting as punctuation to the more contemplative sections. It’s hugely impressive work from a band who are still only in their late teens, but show a great deal of maturity in their music.

Looking for Liam are:

Tom Harper-Ward – Lead Guitar/Keyboard/Vocals

Jordan Spowart – Rhythm Guitar

Sam House – Bass Guitar/Backing Vocals

Charlie Townsend – Drums/Backing Vocals

Vida release date in June ‘Electric Lady’/’Fade Away’

Two track release unveiled on June 15th

A truly exciting band who have been likened to some of the shining lights of UK indie, Vida are a British four piece who are definitely going places. Drawing comparisons to a wide ranging indie catalogue, including the likes of Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, The Black Keys, Miles Kane and more, their growing reputation has seen them garnering recognition from some of the country’s top tastemakers.

Their new single is a double A-side release showing two of the different sides of the group. First, ‘Electric Lady’ tells the story of repeated overnight stays with the same girl after meeting on several nights out, and the awkwardness that follows the next morning. Meanwhile, ‘Fade Away’ speaks of a completely different kind of awkward – finding yourself in the same room as an ex…

You can hear both songs here:

Already supported by Amazing Radio  for their previous single ‘Colour’, Vida have also been building their reputation on the live circuit. Having been handpicked to play XFM’s This Feeling shows several times, as well as four gigs at prestigious independent venue King Tuts in Glasgow, they also headlined a charity festival in Stirling to great acclaim.

Their appearance at the fundraising events mirrors their approach to music, offering fans something free in exchange for their ongoing support. Vida are known for handing out music and merchandise at live shows, free to music fans who go home with EPs, CDs, badges and more. This generous approach is spreading the word and helping to create a legion of fans, who will continue to build Vida into a force to be reckoned with.

‘Electric Lady’ and ‘Fade Away’ will be released on June 15th.

Eric Unseen aim to prove they have been ‘Brought Up The Right Way’ with new album

LP to be released on the same day as lead single, ‘That Ain’t Love’ – October 1st

A South Wales based boy band with a taste for energetically infectious melodies, Eric Unseen are a three piece with a growing reputation in the UK indie scene.

Having supported and gigged with a host of high profile names including Bastille, We are Scientists, The Alarm, The Stiff Little Fingers, Cast, Ocean Colour Scene, Skindred, Paramore, Goldie Lookin Chain, The Subways, and The Automatic, the band are now ramping up for further exposure with new album ‘Brought Up the Right Way’.

With a sound that comes across like a contemporary version of The Smiths with an indie twist, Eric Unseen are unlike any other band on the circuit at the moment, and aim to drive their point home with this album’s lead single – ‘That Ain’t Love’

The band are no strangers to the stage and have really turned heads with the quality of their live shows. In addition to the impressive list of gigs above, they also reached the final of national competition ‘Live and Unsigned’, fighting through 10,000 acts to play in the showcase event at London’s O2 arena in front of 3 thousand people.

Their success though has not gone to their heads, and they happily joke about the gig they played the next day – a small pub with seven people in it who were there to watch the football.

Fans include producers Greg Haver (The Manic Street Preachers, Cataonia, Super Furry Animals), Richard Jackson (Duffy, The Automatic) and Slade front man Noddy Holder, all impressed by Eric Unseen’s versatile and consistently high quality songwriting.

And it all comes from an outlook of simplicity and the feel of a band simply having fun, with lyrics inspired by a relatable life in ‘The Valleys’ of Wales painting a very different picture from the trashy MTV attempt at reality television.

The album and single will be available from October 1st and is being funded by new crowd funding site Free The Music Book: http://freethemusicbook.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=61

ANTONIO PAUL PREMIERE THEIR TITLE TRACK FROM NEW EP ‘MELODIC DAZE’ OUT SEPTEMBER 8TH IN THE UK

Created from the depths of the deep south of Western Australia, with the intentions similar to any art project that is packed full of social commentary, anti-establishment spunk and the critical analysis of a generation. Sonically serving the purpose to bridge the gap between bands and new wave electronic producers.

Mostly a result of having such a eclectic range of influences, the genre-crossing twist’s and turns of Antonio Paul can deceive any one into believing that each song could in fact be from various different artists.  Through the eyes of Antonio Paul, this quality is necessary in this modern age of music as the defining trait to separate themselves from an over saturated scene, serving the purpose of keeping whomever is watching and listening always guessing.

The mystic heavy fog that surrounds the band is key to stopping the prediction or placement of their music. Their songs ultimately force the listener to live in the moment of each song and to enjoy what they have – as opposed to what could be.

Antonio Paul have come a long way since their self produced track ‘City Dreams’. Since then, Marc Antonio and Michael Paul from Bunbury, Western Australia have been busy crafting their tunes and working with upcoming local directors to produce their music video clips. In this short space of time the boys soon clocked up a strong fanbase both in Australia and overseas and have supported the likes of Jinja Safari, San Cisco and Snakadaktal.

The recording project of Marc Antonio and Michael Paul reaches the UK with their with new track ‘Melodic Daze’ after huge hype throughout the US and Australia. A rock band at their core, this soulful dubby number exemplifies the bands’ key attribute of ambidexterity. Check it out, and find more info on their incoming EP below.

LISTEN TO / SHARE ‘MELODIC DAZE’ HERE

Antonio Paul created a buzz on music blogs and college webzines overseas and currently have the interest of some of the World’s leading record labels and booking agencies, and in more recent times have acquired  a young gun at Island Def Jam joining them as co-manager for the  USA…..now it’s the UK’s turn to experience their talent with the new EP ‘Modern Daze’.

‘Honestly, I don’t think I will ever be disappointed by anything Antonio Paul releases.’ – Indie Shuffle

‘Their dance rock tunes conjure house parties seen through bleary eyes and drunken runs along moonlit beaches–whether you’ve actually experienced either matters little.’ – Pigeons & Planes

‘On the surface alternative rock music is pretty boring if you ask me, so simply labeling the music of the Bunbury, Australia based duo Antonio//Paul this way is vague and undeserving. Their sound does intrique us quite a bit.’ – Hilly Dilly
