Quote Club: The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers

“Haunted is the second track we recorded for this Album, and unlike the other tracks, the instrumentation was recorded in just one live take.  The song also came together in the writing process very quickly too.  The song tries to explore the dark angst we feel when earthly companionship is either absent or fails to…

Sara Diamond – Unsure

Sara Diamond has a voice. A big, emotionally charged voice. A voice that demands the listener’s attention and holds it firm through the duration of her new single ‘Unsure’. Introspective and fun in equal measure, the new record is the output of an artist at full confidence. Diamond explains that “Unsure” is “all about all about…

Launchpad: Madeleine Rosenthal

Fire debut alert! I love being introduced to an artist with seemingly boundless potential. Madeleine Rosenthal’s indie tinged electronic pop has a very high ceiling; beautiful melodies and a gorgeous vocal tone characterises her debut single ‘No One’s Gonna Save You’. “No One’s Gonna Save You is a song about not relying on others to…

Meghann Clancy – In Time

“‘In Time’ is a nostalgic reminiscence of the innocence and joy of young love, and how this can change when problems and difficulties arise. I drew inspiration for this song from the North sea, and we filmed the video at a beautiful beach in Northumberland. It is the first of 3 tracks I’m releasing, under…

Djiil – Sick N’ Tired

And old school hip-hop beat lays the foundation on Parisian producer Djiil’s new single Sick N’ Tired. The beat is accompanied by a guitar that phases in and out of soulful licks, peppered around Mickey Shiloh’s sumptuous vocal. Follow Djiil: Facebook

On The Record: Drinker

This is your second single now, how do you feel the response has been so far? Aaron: Great, actually. This music is something completely new for both of us and I really didn’t know what to expect. It’s been great to see Spotify get behind it with placements on New Indie Mix, and New Music…

Austin Bey – Stray

“I started the song on the anniversary of the murder of a rapper from my city named Lor Scoota and it made me think of how many other people with so much potential had the same fate. That’s where the “don’t go where I’m from..” line in the intro comes from.” “My emotions are so…

Noisywaters – Summer Nights

Firstly, no it’s not a Grease cover. Secondly, it is a Cosmo Sheldrake esque foray into glitchy sampled folk-electro. The synth work is particularly impressive, with the Washington duo showing off their production chops by balancing busy instrumental sections with spacious breaks. “Summer Nights is a dark and dreamy dance track, a sonic excursion to…

NOVAA x LO – Lights

Pulsing, rhythmically swelling synths accompany NOVAA’s subtle, laid back vocal delivery on her new single ‘Lights’, a collaborative effort with emerging producer Lo. Think AlunaGeorge but more restrained. “LIGHTS approaches the question if being in love means falling for someone else or falling for yourself and the person that the other one sees in you….
