From Yajna to ‘The Rising Phoenix’

It hasn’t been the easiest journey for Yajna. Having overcome many obstacles, including clinical depression, one constant has remained – her music.

Her debut release, Natten Lång, gained significant radio success in Sweden, and helped to refine her musical sound. However, it was in London she felt her true artist was discovered, The Rising Phoenix, and so it continues to be her ‘second home’ and music base.

It was there, where she recorded her epic power-pop trilogy, accordingly titled, The Rising Phoenix. The collection of songs represents her journey from her lowest points, and rising from the ashes stronger than ever.

Through her work and music, Yajna wants to “reach out with a message of hope, love and power, and help others into a healthy, strong and independent lifestyle.

Francisco Bayon ‘When I Call You’ Review

Francisco Bayo¦ün - When I Call You

The Skype call inspired  ‘When I Call You’  by Francisco Bayon is an uplifting and unique summer anthem. Featuring accordion throughout the track builds up to a huge festival ready texture from just the Skype ringtone. I think everyone can agree that it is a very creative way of using the ringtone. Francisco’s fantastic vocals then come in and deliver some very catchy lyrics and melodic combinations that have been going round in my head for ages after listening to it. Go and get it now!

Andrea Di Giovanni releases atmospheric new electropop single ‘I’ll Take Care of Myself’

ATTENTION! This is a sweeeeetbeat…

21-year-old Italian-born singer, Andrea Giovanni, is set to release atmospheric new electropop song, ‘I’ll Take Care of Myself’, set to drop April 15th. Taking influence vocally from Sam Smith and Jess Glynne, the artist delivers a soaring vocal performance that has the potential to appeal both to underground fans and the masses. Marco Casaluce produces the instrumental, opening with brooding synth swells before erupting with some hard-hitting bass.

Catch a teaser here: https://soundcloud.com/andrea-di-giovanni-2/ill-take-care-of-myself-teaser-andrea-di-giovanni

Raised in Rome, Andrea moved to the UK in 2013 to pursue his dreams as a singer. A sufferer of the rare skin condition vitiligo, Andrea was bullied in the youth for the affliction putting him in a very dark place. His strict Catholic upbringing also made it hard for him to openly come to terms with his bixesuality. Moving to the UK, he was able to finally find acceptance, learning to embrace them as strengths instead of weaknesses.

As he explains himself, ‘I started to see vitiligo as my edge and distinctive characteristic of my personality, a strength. I decided to show it in the covert art-work of the single, ‘taking care of myself’ means also the ability to transform what you’ve always considered weaknesses into beautiful strengths.

Andrea also has an EP ‘Soultrip’ on the way scheduled for release in July.

2Nice Unleashes the ‘Sunlight’ with Latest Track

10153723_742252632461722_7642575485299275733_n

Since winning the 2008 award for ’UK Unsigned Best Reggae/Dancehall Act’,  2Nice’s momentum and reputation has been growing thanks to his innate talent for bringing together and blending styles. His buzz is such that urban music royalty are sitting up and taking notice, with fans and collaborators including Congo Natty, Luciano, Tinie Tempah, Dizzie Rascal, Wiley, Mark Morrison and more.

And now, with new single ‘Sunlight’ release on QW-KEYMUSIC it’s set to show the world exactly how it sounds when pop, rap, reggae and EDM are drawn together, his star will continue to rise:

Gritty and raw while still having a polished sheen, ‘Sunlight’ is a single which could well see 2Nice break through from cult status to the mainstream. It’s truly impressive work from a brave and innovative artist not afraid to try new things.

All the more impressive, 2Nice does all this while suffering the debilitating effects of epilepsy. Using music in his everyday battle to overcome the condition, 2Nice finds the creative process soothing – allowing him to turn his thoughts away from an illness he has found it hard to come to terms with.

Theo Altieri – Little Fun

Infused with summertime sunshine vibes, this is top-notch power pop from a kid worth keeping tabs on’ Record Of The Day.

Following a limited edition run of 7” vinyl last year for his release ‘Get Along’, Swindon based Theo Altieri is set to release his new single ‘Little Fun’ on 14th June 2015.  ‘Little Fun’ is a catchy slice of summertime indie-pop featuring gritty sounding guitars, punky chords and bold, cocky drums.

This talented teenage singer-songwriter has already received heavy radio support from BBC Introducing and is also a firm favourite of Amazing Radio, having been previously awarded Best Unsigned Male Artist. Altieri also recently celebrated his 18th birthday not long after being selected out of 6000 entries for Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent long-list.

In his own words, Altieri says the inspiration for ‘Little Fun’ happened after “…listening to Beck’s “Odelay” album for the first time.  I woke up and started writing with a less “particular” head on. Also I had just watched a documentary about dodgy narcotics in other countries and felt the song was just about everyone seeking fun in one way or another.”

Crazy Fenton New Single – ‘Cool Ella’

20150203_110526

Having worked with renowned producer Dave Allen (The Cure, Human League, Chameleons) to arrive at an energetic studio style, the new single ‘Cool Ella’ is set for release on June 22nd. High energy and built on a foundation of distorted guitars and pounding drums, this is one for fans of the classics.

A welcome throwback to the golden ages of punk and rock, Crazy Fenton is the musical brainchild of songwriter Clive Aliker – a Norfolk based artist who is a big fan of making a good old fashioned ruckus. With influences from 60s garage rock and 70s punk all the way through to the modern day, Crazy Fenton is the work of a veteran musician who certainly knows how to rattle out a top tune.

With lyrics inspired – in Clive Aliker’s own words – by ‘deaths,mental failings,and a complete inability to understand the female species’, these are songs that listeners can’t fail to relate to.

‘Cool Ella’ is one hell of a way to come out fighting, and with the follow up album due a couple of weeks later on July 13th, you will be hearing a lot more of Crazy Fenton in 2015. The album, produced by British EDM trailblazer Alex Banks (EZ Rollers), is the kind of release which will have the music industry on high alert with its raw song writing and production values.

And in ‘Cool Ella’, Crazy Fenton has picked out one hell of an entranceLinks:

BowLDN ready to unveil new single ‘Survivor’

11119074_10152667121781315_1716026069_n

Based in South West London, BowLDN is a solo artist and producer who is no stranger to going against the grain. Working hard to create a unique hip hop sound all of his own, he has consciously stepped away from the pigeonholing and standardisation of the music industry to create something new.

The latest example of his unusual sound is his track ‘Survivor’, a fittingly named single about overcoming adversity to make a better life for yourself – a subject with which BowLDN has a lot of experience.

Diagnosed with learning difficulties at a relatively late stage in his schooling, BowLDN was initially told by his mainstream school that he wouldn’t pass his GCSE exams. Taking the decision to leave behind a school who had lost faith, he studied for his GCSEs at a YMCA training school, eventually passing each subject and specialising in music.

Moving on to college, he once again found himself lost in the shuffle, and getting in with the wrong crowd. A scrape with the law left him sentenced to one year’s probation and 30 hours community service.

Encouraged as part of his sentence to join a drama group called Bare Truths, BowLDN met a supportive group of people who allowed him to express himself creatively for perhaps the first time. Once his sentence was up, and he was no longer required to attend the group, he continued anyway – learning with each session and honing his creative outlet.

The next step is the release of ‘Survivor’ on June 22nd. From there – who knows?

All This Noise new single ‘Seven Billion Like You’ to be released on June 15th

Capture2

West London bands, All This Noise are ones to watch for 2015, with their original and individual sound. They are very different to anything we have heard, with a fresh new take on alternative rock. Their new single ‘Seven Billion Like You’ is set for release on 15 June 2015, and it is already causing a buzz within the industry.

Single to be accompanied by B Side track, ‘The Return’

An intriguing blend of genre and ideas” Alphabet Bands

“Very much a band to watch out for in 2015” Rock ‘N’ Roll Creation

“Sophisticated and elaborate touches” Unsigned and Independent Magazine

All This Noise’s sound has been compared to that of The Cure, Radiohead and Depeche Mode. The band are starting to put their own stamp on alternative rock, with cleverly written lyrics taking us into the mind of the band, a rarity in modern music. The single has a very original sound – relaxed with a slightly haunting twist – and they manage to cross multiple genres seamlessly.

Forming in late 2014 the band have gone from strength to strength, gaining a large amount of coverage from multiple online blogs. The singer and lead guitarist, James, has worked as a sub-editor for Mixmag and has been published in The Guardian, The Telegraph and The Independent.

Alan, bassist and producer, has worked in music his entire life. He has been a session player for bands such as Freaky Realistic (Polydor), Mint Royale (Sony), and H Boogie (Island Rec). Alan also has his own studio in West London, where he records, produces and mixes for multiple bands. In the past he has worked with artists such as Mint Royale, Wolf Alice and Charlie XCX. The band has also received support from BBC Radio 6 host Tom Robinson who has played them a few times on his radio show.

New Single Out Now ‘A Little of What You Fancy’

New single taken from the ‘Looking for Love’ EP

With her latest EP ‘Looking for Love’ already causing a stir, Lola Lamour is now ready for the release of her new single, ‘A Little of What You Fancy’ – a striking, upbeat number which can’t fail to get those shoes shuffling.

Lola Lamour

The single itself is pacy, light and fun, and comes alongside a new video in which Lola is joined on a scenic walk by a growing cast of colourful characters. See the clip for yourself here:

They’ve already had appearances, coverage and praise from the likes of the Daily Mail, the Telegraph, Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, Radio 2, GMTV and countless other outlets, and as that list grows so does the profile of Lola Lamour and her band.

It’s all thanks in part to her charisma and her dedication to the vintage way of life – her home recreates the 50s/60s feel so accurately that it’s been used as a set for several TV projects. But mostly the success comes from Lola’s supreme vocal talents, song writing, and the musical backing of her Lamours.
