Delivering a heartfelt and fantastically executed rendition of the much loved Micheal Jackson classic ‘Man In The Mirror’, Paddy James doesn’t fail to deliver.
Paddy James is a singer-songwriter who takes stories and turns them into carefully constructed Folk/indie inspired simplistic tracks, with new song “Perfectly Flawed” having just been released, 2018 is shaping up to be the year of Paddy James.
London-based father and son duo, Donegan, release the video to Candles from their forthcoming album, First XI today. With a far more hard-hitting sound than their debut single, Reminisce, it is the carefully crafted kind of track that music fans are starting to come to expect from the band. Their album is due at the end of March.
Never one to do things by halves, indie singer-songwriter Nele Needs a Holiday appears not once but twice at this year’s Latitude Festival, this year’s must-attend festival in the absence of Glastonbury. Taking her hit musical from the Hammersmith Lyric Theatre, How To Fail at Being Perfect to a mass audience, she is also previewing her latest musical, modestly self-titled and about her own “wayward” love-life! Perfect timing then for this, her brilliant video to We’ll See, which debuted today!
After a media campaign which has seen thousands share his viral videos, Hunter (The Voice) finally officially releases his debut single, “So Gay” on, of course, Valentine’s Day. Now with a radical EDM remix, the song is no less gloriously uplifting and a perfect antidote to generic fluffy animal greetings cards. How better to come out to your beloved than playing this for them? Good luck!
We’re not sure moving your piano to the middle of the woods is the best way to care for your instruments (no-one wants earwigs in their baby grand, now do they?) but there’s no denying how effective the video to piano-virtuoso, Maria Rago’s The Sound of Leaves is. It makes our fingers hurt to watching and listening.
Perhaps the most exciting punk band around, Wartoad, emerged from the swamp just before Christmas with a cover of Slade’s Merry Xmas Everybody, amassing oodles of social media hits as a result. They now issue their first original material, I Alone Can Fix It, though the lyrical content has largely been written by a superstar not technically in the band…enjoy!
Soul and R&B artist Michael Rhodes performs his brand new original track ‘Feel It’, in Kentish Town at St Lukes Church. This soft, yet emotional performance caters to your inner soul, all while exposing you to up and coming performer and writer Michael Rhodes. Channeling his life experiences through his art, this performance gives the song a great visual aid and helps you truly ‘Feel It’…..Pun Intended!

No floppy fringes or staring at their shoes here, this is UK indie music 2018 style – multi-layered; edgy and genuinely cool (cool enough for Clash to premier this video). Expect NME, Pitchfork and the Brits to come calling in the near future – we know a hit when we see/hear one
Perhaps the most engagingly fun video for some time, Survival Code have weathered a raft of line-up changes to emerge as a dynamic duo (sans capes). With the melodies and power of Royal Blood and Foo Fighters combined, The Survival Code are set to be THE band of 2018 (in kitchens and beyond!)
Here’s the video debut of Brighton-based singer-songwriter, Ben Ridley, formerly a classically-trained composer and pianist, now firmly camped in the 1970’s school of singer-songwriters. Bringing to mind Billy Joel and Todd Rundgren, there’s an oddly familiar sound to Dancing Mood, essentially timeless, yet oddly nostalgic. We found it rather catchy and there’s no denying there’s an element of class to the lyric video.
