Brighton based band, Warsaw Radio (W.R.) are back with their latest single ‘After Eve’ which takes on the unique perspective of Adam in the story of Adam and Eve.
These days, the topics that artists base their songs on in popular music can be very banal and dull; the same old songs about unrequited love and heartbreak. However, whilst ‘After Eve’ does focus on a couple, it goes one step further, imagining what it would be like if Adam and Eve had been separated after being banished from the Garden of Eden.
With original starting points and imagination for writing their songs, Warsaw Radio already have one up on other artists, before you’ve even listened to the music. The band create a folk-inspired blend of rock-pop that distinguishes itself with a classically orchestrated edge. The warm and emotive vocals of front-man, Brian McNamara, combine with the rich instrumentation of soaring string sections and well-crafted songwriting, making for a unique listening experience.
The name of the band has a particularly interesting origin and stems from when Brian was reading about the siege of Warsaw in 1939. Throughout the whole siege, the Warsaw Radio orchestra continued to play their music until their transmission mast was destroyed by an artillery shell. Their determination really truly influenced McNamara who said: “The story really inspired me. Working as an original artist in what can be a tough industry can be hard and having an inspiration like these guys in 1939 helps to keep you going”.
The Senti-Mentals escape the Christmas song cliche with ‘You Show Me Yours At Xmas’ accompanied by a hilarious animated music video. The duo have developed the doo-wop sound, adding a punk poet edge like no other. Consisting of Paul Eccentric and John Dobinson, The Senti-Mentals are ready to change the meaning of a Christmas classic.
‘You Show Me Yours At Xmas’ follows the story of an anti-hero and his attempts to pull anything with a pulse. Eccentric and Dobinson explain that there’s always “that one guy from accounts who assumes that every lady in the office wants to go home with him but he couldn’t be further from the truth.”
Based in Newport, South Wales, Nina Jones is the latest vocal jewel from a country which boasts a stellar musical heritage. At just 17 years old, hers is a voice which already holds the maturity and depth of singers well beyond her years.
Her new single is a cover version of the legendary Prince track ‘Purple Rain’ – one of the songs that saw Prince become a household name in the 1980s. Nina Jones is hoping her version of the song may go some way to doing the same for her with its UK release, bringing the track back to basics to showcase her superb vocals.
The languid, artistic video is available online now, and you can see it below:
