Overcoming meningitis and, as a result, epilepsy, would for many signal an end rather than a beginning, but this is far from the case with Swedish auteur, Steele. Confirming her belief in her entrancingly shadowy music and lyrics, she writes music which makes no concession to fashion or fleeting trends. She may have been forced to embrace an entirely un-rockstar lifestyle of no alcohol, but her visceral edge is keener than ever.
Hold your lighters aloft, this is one of the most anthemic songs of 2018 so far, doubly thrilling as the video is equally superb. Oddly heart-tugging stuff, you’ll have to excuse us as we have something in our eye *sniff*
Italo-Greek duo, Iotaphi have received a nomination from the Berlin Music Video Awards for their single, Kids of Chaos, and it’s easy to see why. The deeply atmospheric, multi-layered electronic anthem features performances by dancers with Down Syndrome – not in a manner that is intending to evoke pity, in fact, quite the opposite – it reinforces the track’s message of the triumph of the human spirit against apathy and ignorance. Classy, profound stuff.
Scotland based band Screamin’ Whisper Have been hard at work writing and recording their brand new album ‘Filth’.
And with the band steadily growing and gaining traction within their local live circuit, they are assured to be heading to a town near you.
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!
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
