Turner Brothers release single favouring England for the Euros

The Turner Brothers have created a song in favour of England ahead of the Euro finals. They claim it came to them in a dream that England won, hence the cheery title ‘Build Us A Dream’.
The upbeat and folky tune builds on England’s roots, and is a positively catchy single to support England that you would expect to hear in the stadium sung by hundreds of fans.

All that remains to say is: COME ON ENGLAND!

UK singer-songwriter Alan Bonner demonstrates unique nocturnal sound with new album ‘Night Music’

This is the type of music that will endure long after other fads and fashions have passed on by’ – Electric Harmony Blog

Mr. Bonner has the means of a pauper but sings with the heart of a king.’ – Surviving The Golden Age Blog

Alan Bonner Night Music Album CoverUK singer-songwriter Alan Bonner is set to deliver his third album, Night Music – a smoky, dimly-lit collection of songs inspired by London and its nocturnal inhabitance.

As Bonner puts it: ‘songs inspired by drinkers, thieves, prostitutes, spurned lovers, fallen rock stars and chance meetings with strangers on night buses. Songs inspired by the disaffected creatures that take to the streets and the bars of the city when the sun goes down.

The album touches on personal tales of long-distance romances, family relationships and depression as well as world-encompassing topics of love, hope and mortality. This is all delivered with a vivid and poetic lyricism certain to appeal to fans of artists like Rufus Wainwright, The National, Sufjan Stevens and Perfume Genius.

Produced by Aneek Thapar and recorded in South London, Night Music’s backdrop is one of intimate pianos, orchestral strings and minimalist percussion that perfectly encapsulate the album’s title.

He holds this whole history of gay men’s relationships in his music that Beyonce as a straight woman will never once hold.’ – QX magazine

Bonner has regularly worked with LGBT charities, being a gay artist himself. His interests in social issues have also extended to substance abusers and the homeless, having worked voluntarily and professionally as a support worker.

Having already released two well-received previous albums, Bonner will hopefully build on his success with this new release. Already, he has received previous airplay on stations such as BBC6 Music and MTV Italy, and achieved press coverage from Grazia, Gay Times, Attitude, Time Out London and RTE Ireland.

Although based in London, the artist has spent a lot of time recently living out of a suitcase, touring extensively across the UK, Ireland, Europe, Australia and the US.

The Breaking Pattern revitalise emo rock on spectacular new album, ‘There Are Roadmaps In Our Veins’

The face of the Phoenix emo revival movement’ – The Huffington Post

Have a bite of these guys!

Arizona indie rock group, The Breaking Pattern, are bringing a fresh new sound to the emo scene on their debut album There Are Roadmaps In Our Veins. Anthemic vocals and reverb-soaked guitars make for a euphoric and equally lovelorn summery sound.

The band cite emo and pop-punk acts such as Real Friends, The Wonder Years, Man Overboard and The Hotelier as influences. Fellow Arizona indie rockers Lydia have offered the band much support, their guitarist Justin Camacho even co-writing songs with the band in the past.

The album lyrically tackles the hurdles of a failing relationship. The band’s frontman explains: ‘The album is somewhat of a break-up album, chronicling the various stages of a doomed relationship from the moments leading up to the split until the resolution and recovery. I say “somewhat” because it is not a concept album. The songs do not tell one specific story, but are a compilation of personal experience and the stories I’ve witnessed from friends who had their own hearts disintegrated into red dust.

Producer Cory Spotts engineers the record, having worked with other esteemed Arizona acts including The Maine, The Summer Set, BlessTheFall and Job for a Cowboy.

Within the first few months of their formation, the band opened for celebrated acts such as Emarosa, This Century, Weatherbox and The Rocket Summer. They have since sold out multiple shows.

Vocalist Derek Hackman previously fronted a band called Ezer. Having long had a passion for music, he began writing songs aged 11. Moving house frequently as a child, Derek dealt with long periods of social isolation that fuelled his songwriting. The first time he ever sang live was at his high school graduation – in front of 6000 people. He was so nervous he vomited in the bathroom only minutes prior to going up on stage.

Derek is also a published poet and has a degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology.

Making up the band’s other members include drummer Brandon (who also handles a lot of the photography), guitarist Nick (who happens to also be an award-winning coffee roaster) and bassist Jacob (who is Columbian and fluent in Spanish).

A promo video for the album’s opening track ‘Let Love go’ is available here:

There Are Roadmaps In Our Veins is out April 8th.

Proving he’s the real deal with new EP – Sherwinn ‘Dupes’ Brice

Sherwinn Dupes Brice SMALL- 1

Having already made a name for himself in his native country, Dupes is now focusing on bringing his own, catchy brand of pop to UK shores.

Having been compared to the likes of Bruno Mars and One Direction, albeit with a more urban twist, he is excited about the release of his debut EP, ‘From Saint Lucia With Love’, in the UK. Stylishly produced and slickly written, it’s little wonder that tracks such as lead single ‘Guilty’ have caught on in the Caribbean.

Electro tinged rocker unleashes their gritty new sound on October 16th

Born in the USA, Jupiter In Velvet is a new incarnation for an artist who has travelled the world before settling in London – a suitable location for his gritty, urban take on rock music. Also straying into pop territory thanks to his music’s instant accessibility, this is an artist who knows how to spin a toe tapping tune, but may not do so in the mainstream manner you’ve come to expect.

For a brief taste of what we’re talking about, here’s the video for ‘The World Didn’t Start With U’

This is just the start for an artist who knows the value of hard work to achieve his goals. With a BA in marketing and an MBA in finance already to his name, Jupiter In Velvet then chose to not to complete a PhD in finance to travel the world and concentrate on developing his songwriting. His choice of life experience over book learning has paid off – now, Jupiter In Velvet’s music is played in over 65 countries on 6 continents.
