We’d never really considered foxes as frightening, but we’re beginning to wonder how we’ve ever managed to sleep at night after watching this. JohnlikeJohn’s resident fox (possibly in all sense, we couldn’t possibly say), Twiggy, gets her breakout role in Faking Foxes, the nightmarish new video released by the rising folk collective. Don’t have nightmares. But you will.
Is there a point to making music videos any more? Here’s your answer – “yes”, any day of the week. Brilliantly executed, Cholesterol Jones’ video to his latest track, “Satan’s in Heaven”, sees him bearing his teeth and mauling Donald Trump, whilst still delivering a brilliant song and a video which drags you in from the very beginning. No-one is going to walk away from this one before it finishes, testament to Cholesterol’s indie-folk songwriting and his video-making skills. “Satan’s in Heaven” will be the lead track from the forthcoming EP of the same name. It has made us very happy.

This is an live session performed by JOHNLIKEJOHN. With his classically emotional and entertaining take on life, JOHNLIKEJOHN‘s arsenal of Double Bass, acoustic guitar and sweet mix of male and female vocals prove to the world that they are here to have fun and live life to the fullest.
With the upcoming release of his new EP, ‘Vegans Are Evil Too’, this is the perfect teaser for what is yet to come.
Ex-pat harpist, Julia Mascetti is making quite a name for herself in her adopted home of Tokyo. Combining a very British style of folk and singer-songwriter sensibilities with traditional Japanese musical accompaniment: this live rendition of the lead track from her forthcoming EP, “In Distance, Everything is Poetry” shows her dark, spooky side in a unique setting.
Mark L. Oakes has recently dropped the new video for his single ‘Shredded Jeans’ that is taken from his latest album, Call Me The Moon.
The Belgian singer-songwriter’s relaxed folky style is perfectly accompanied by the emotive black and white visuals of the video. We see Mark playing his guitar in baron, winter landscapes that evoke a sense of desolation and loneliness, yet this fits in with how Oakes describes his album as the ideal soundtrack for a ‘karmic road trip’.
Mainly tracked at Mark’s home studio in the heart of the Ardennes, the record has been finalised with the help of Londoner cellist Ben Trigg and mastered by Grammy award winner Gavin Lurssen in Los Angeles.

For lovers of easy-listening, folk style music, make sure to check out ‘The Wayfarer’ by Glenn Harrold.
Harrold is also a well renowned hypnotherapist and self-help author who has sold millions of copies all over the world, but now he has employed his other talent of songwriting.
With the strong and meaningful story of the Peace Pilgrim behind the beautiful music of ‘The Wayfarer’, Glenn has a potent combination for his diversion into the world of music. ‘The Wayfarer’ also features the soft and pure vocals of Dean Rhymes, whose voice takes you on a journey of its own.
The video documents the remarkable story of Mildred Lisette Norman, otherwise known as the ‘Peace Pilgrim’, who walked across America at least 8 times in the name of world peace. With some wonderful historical footage and of course, Glenn’s well-crafted musicianship, ‘The Wayfarer’ is certainly worth a watch, and a listen.
The new video from Middle Kids for their upbeat single ‘Never Start’ is definitely one to watch.
With an edgy black and white 1960s new-wave film vibe and tons of flashing lights, there is a great concept behind the video, directed by Emile Freeman.
The Sydney, Australia, based trio made waves across the world with their last release, ‘Edge of Town’ and they’ll be hoping to do the same with ‘Never Start’.
Worth a listen for those who like their folky-indie-rock!
Franco-British singer-songwriter Corinna Jane brings back the ethos of old school pop music with her new single ‘Three Faces Of You’ taken from her upcoming EP ‘Hard In Love’.
Fed on a diet of 90s MTV, Corinna had a passion for music from a young age. By the age of five she had taken up piano and singing lessons, soon composing her own music and establishing herself as a sing-songwriter in her teens.
Corinna has never been afraid of being herself, crafting her own unique brand of piano driven alternative rock. The keen actress, model and radio presenter has a quirky style and personality, which has led to her receiving airplay on the likes of BBC Radio 6, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing and making the top 5 solo artists at the Rock The House Competition.
‘Three Faces Of You’ follows the fascinating story of Corinna’s relationship with someone who lived in their own fantasy world with various personalities residing in him. The feisty song is mirrored in Corinna Jane and her band’s performance, which has strong resemblance of the powerhouse of Fleetwood Mac and No Doubt.
Having supported Leddra Chapman and been a guest vocalist/co-writer with German DJ Mark-Oh, it’s clear Corinna is ready to take the music industry by storm.
It’s well known that a strong work-ethic in the modern industry is often as important as the quality of the songs and the fact that Yeti Love has both makes this year one full of potential for the pair.
Already busy putting together a tour to promote the album from the end of September, they are already in and out of the studio working on an new EP to follow it up. Already two steps ahead, all this comes at the same time as curating and organising their very own festival: The Airballoon Garden Party, 29-30th August at Rickman Hill Park.With the festival in late August, plus the single, album and tour due for September, this summer offers Yeti Love to bring their music to more people than ever before. And with an alternative-folk brand this compelling, they’ll be listening.
