Wavewulf blasts into the musical stratosphere with new album ‘Space Art and Angels’

22nd January 2021 is a date that is destined to be marked in the annals of electronica history as the day that Wavewulf released his seminal synth masterwork, ‘Space Art and Angels’.

This album takes the listener on a supernatural voyage of galaxies, stars and supernovas that conjures up irresistible images of tranquil constellations and milky ways. Wavewulf is able to engineer this impact on the listener through his mastery of the synth that perfectly encapsulates an intergalactic sound, whilst the artist has also demonstrated his ability in conjuring up very powerful earth-bound emotions.

The album’s opening track track ‘Space Capsule’ is a wonderful instrumental composition that would perfectly fit into any science fiction film soundtrack and instantly demands the listener’s complete attention. The album’s stand out tracks lie in ‘Voyagers’ and ‘Ghosts of the Past’ which have an eerie vibe to them thanks to the exceptional synth playing combined with a gentle drum beat that creates a truly transcendent listening experience.

This album very much reminded me of Cliff Martinez’s scoring of the 2011 neo-noir flick ‘Drive’ starring Ryan Gosling, which also included dystopian, lo-fi synth pop sounds combined with mellow, leisurely-paced instrumentals that give the listener a space to reflect on their hectic lives.

‘Space Art and Angels’ is the eagerly anticipated follow up to Wavewulf’s equally compelling 2020 album ‘Green Decay’, continuing his blistering run of form with his latest release. Wavewulf claims that seeing Depeche Mode play live was the defining moment in his calling to join the echelons of electronic greats. This served as the catalyst for the New Jersey based musician to purchase a synthesiser and craft his unique blend of hypnotic electro that could rival any of the genre’s classic names such as Kraftwerk and Brian Eno.

Wavewulf has taken inspiration from artists throughout the 20th century and has successfully packaged his music for a modern audience to enjoy.

Antonia Grace drops amazing EP ‘London Grace’ despite being only 10 years old

Antonia Grace won’t let anything hold her back, least of all her age! The 10-year old singer has released five hit tracks which really showcase her stunning vocals.

Her worldwide appeal leaves fans in awe at her singing and acting skills, with Antonia’s Anglo-French heritage aiding her online coverage globally. She’s already surpassed the triumphs of many musicians, finding magazine features and radio play easily within her talented grasp.

The star is most praised for her outstanding singing ability, and the EP really gives her a platform to present what she can do.

This also isn’t surprising since she began acting in musical theatre at only 5 years old, before performing to audiences of thousands of people at only age 7.

Tracks ‘My Little Ten’ and ‘Tick Tock and Bonbons’ are unbelievably mature and expressive for a girl of such youth. The EP is perfectly pop and upbeat; a great listen if you’re ever needing to feel motivated. Antonia Grace certainly has been.

I Am Tru Starr releases album ‘Viva’ as a hymn to Black Lives Matter

I Am Tru Starr is an artist that epitomises musical expression. The tracks on this latest release truly portray his feelings and, for that reason, listeners can find it easy to relate to the emotional lyrics.

The album gives classic soul and hip-hop vibes while also allowing I Am Tru Starr to add his own twist to the music. Having spent five years in a federal prison, his experience with the subject of the lyrics gives a sense of realism. Especially in track ‘Something’s Gotta Change’, which brims with emotion and personal experience.

I Am Tru Starr is originally from Rochester, New York and he’s living in Las Vegas now. As a young black man, he’s seen first-hand the best and the worst elements of society and portrays this through his music. We can see this through the lyrics of ‘Something’s Gotta Change’:

This society is sedated and I wanna do my part in waking ‘em up. It’s about time real music got the light it deserves. No politics. No label tricks. No big city backing. My family explained to me when I was young that Emmett Till (whose lynching was a major influence on the emergence of Black Rights in 50s and 60s America) was a distant cousin, and what he went through has always helped to fuel the passion in my music”

I Am Tru Starr boldly displays true honesty, highlighting societies problems with real potency. This album is not to be missed…

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…

Cloudy Clouds’ new album ‘Imprisoned in a Daydream’ is a stunning lyrical story

Cloudy Clouds has released his debut album, Imprisoned in a Daydream which, in 14 tracks, gives a charming mix of self-deprecating humor, witty social commentary and, of course, the nuances of dreamy love. The UK hip-hop scene may not be quite sure what has hit it.

Mensa-member Claudio Elliston has reinvented himself as Cloudy Clouds. Based in the Crouch End area of London, his influence stems from hip-hop’s finest talents, namely Eminem, Lupe Fiasco and, of course Sha Stimuli. Taking notes from these names, we see nothing fake in the music of Cloudy Clouds. Instead, the lyrics are bursting with an emotional sharpness which defies rap stereotypes of soulless commentary.

Notable songs include ‘Your Future Daughter’ which focuses on the UK’s drug laws and their problematic repercussions, and ‘Calling Round’, a song from the perspective of a terrorist attack victim. Cloudy Clouds is the antithesis of shying away from controversial topics.

An album made special by its pure and majestic storytelling, Imprisoned in a Daydream is a mash of trap, grime, drill and rap. Cloudy Clouds is at the top of his game.

Deadly Circus Fire: ‘The Hydra’s Tailor’

12 track album due on June 16th through Musicarchy Media

Described by Metal Hammer as “one of the most imaginative and formidable” prog bands currently plying their trade, Deadly Circus Fire are a London based band who thrive on getting stronger and stronger in their battle with the mainstream. Their sound has been compared to the likes of Tool, Mastodon and Deftones, mixing heavy guitars with melodious moments to create something special.

And it does take something special to turn heads at publications like Metal Hammer, as well as Classic Rock, who described Deadly Circus Fire as “one of the most striking young prog metal bands to come on the scene in the past couple of years”. For a taste of what Deadly Circus Fire are all about, here’s the video for album track ‘House of Plagues’:

It’s clear that Deadly Circus Fire are a band who will make a mark on the metal music scene. They’ve already supported huge cult band Skindred on a European tour, counting it among their career highlights so far. They also previously caused quite a stir by performing in zombie clown make up.

In time though, the music of Deadly Circus Fire has evolved to speak for itself, making a huge impact both live and in the studio without the need for such on stage histrionics.

Toyface ready for new album: ‘Follow the Rules of the Trainwreck’

Having been described by a fellow artist as ‘like Laura Marling crossed with Billie Holiday’, Bristol based duo Tamsyn and James, aka Toyface, are a mouth watering proposition for music fans. With a varied collection of 11 songs making up their debut album, the pair have blended an eclectic range of influences that has resulted in an album with strong jazz and cinematic leanings; both playful and plaintive.

In Tamsyn’s own words, the album ‘charts a process of experiencing, coping with, and the eventual resolution of, existential angst that I went through in my early 20s’; by way of heartbreak, physical insecurity and complex family ties’. And it’s from this well of shared stories where Toyface’s main strength lies – their ability to write with searing honesty about the common human experience, and lay those tales out across an intense, shifting musical backdrop.

For an example check out the lead album track ‘Flight’:

The pair’s songwriting process is varied: sometimes involving Tamsyn writing lyrics alongside her own simple structures on guitar; but often times working from a cappellas, which James then lays piano chords underneath. This is clearly a combination that works well and has yielded a crop of songs which are relatable to anybody who has ever found themselves working hard to find a place in the world – a situation most, if not all of us, know well.

PRimage

The album is set to be exclusively launched in the duo’s home town of Bristol on April 24th, with the album to follow shortly after. The release marks the culmination of a journey that started with a chance meeting on the way back from the Secret Garden Party festival a number of years ago.

Trying to find a way back to Bristol at the end of the festival, Tamsyn managed to find her way onto a truck with a group of revellers heading in that direction. Not long into the journey, an incident on the road left the group stranded for 28 hours waiting for the journey to continue, during which time the group bonded.

The only two people from the group headed to Bristol were Tamsyn and James, whose chance meeting has led to a sibling-like closeness, the formation of Toyface and the debut album ‘Follow the Rules of the Trainwreck’.

With a new festival season on the horizon, there will be plenty more chances to see Toyface in the very near future, starting with that album launch gig on April 24th.

Adam, Hear The Sea debut single – ‘Sorrow’ set to introduce him.

Early demos showed great promise, earning excellent support from BBC6 Music and BBC London radio, and now the time has come for the release of his first official single, ‘Sorrow’

As the name suggests, this is a song about allowing yourself to feel sad sometimes instead of running away from emotions. Adam believes it’s healthier to feel sadness fully and let the wave wash over you until it has passed, as laid out in the uplifting chorus. Far from being downbeat, it’s actually a song about hope, and features a fantastic gospel choir section too:

Based in East London, Adam, Hear the Sea is the new music project and pseudonym for rising singer-songwriter and producer Adam Karayiannis. Of British-Cypriot descent and specialising in the thoughtful end of pop, his influences include the varied likes of Florence and The Machine, Sam Smith, Paloma Faith, Kate Bush, Morissey, Erasure and David Bowie.

0024-2-1-a

Trained in acting and performing arts  with renowned The Chicken Shed Theatre Company and with a degree in Music Production, Adam, Hear the Sea is a multi-faceted artist with plenty of strings to his creative bow. Having made credited appearances in huge TV shows, he is hoping that his new music will continue to propel him on his upward career trajectory. And with tracks like ‘Sorrow’ in his locker, it’s hard not to agree.

And finally, if the knowledge that he managed to ‘acquire’ a bottle of Grey Goose from the obnoxiously drunk cast Made in Chelsea while sharing a dressing room doesn’t endear him to you, then nothing will.

‘Sorrow’ will be available from June 2nd
