Crossover artist, Georg Roman has dropped his video for his latest single, a track that truly hits you in the face on your listen.
With a powerful operatic style voice, combined with rock tendencies, Georg Roman has developed a niche style of music that blends genres in a way that few have done before.
Comparing himself to Josh Groban, Georg takes influence from both classical artists like Luciano Pavarotti, as well as rock legends such as Eric Clapton.
Georg notes that there is nothing quite like the feeling of singing iconic opera songs like ‘Rigoletto’ or ‘Tu Ca Nun Chiagne’, and he seeks to mix this feeling with other types of music that he loves, such as rock. Georg also believes that every song should be told in its own way, and this is certainly something he does with great emphasis on ‘Forever’. Check it out!
This new Christmas sing-along by Jon McDevitt avoids the common approaches to the genre. Thoughtful lyrics by co-writer Dominic Hudson paint Father Christmas as a figure missing from Christmas, whilst allowing the listener to interpret it as to how or why. Musically, ‘Father Christmas’ is pretty easy listening. The seasonal single blends influences from The Smiths and Dexys Midnight Runners to form a tuneful jingle – perfect festive gold. The video features a collage of McDevitt and his supporting band – Dave Coston, Anna Kenkins, Neill Tupman, Matt Francis, Stuart Francis and Lucy Camsell.
From creating the theme tune to the Channel 5 series ‘A Different Life’ to selling 2000 unsigned albums with his original band Geist, McDevitt has a strong background in the music industry. We wish him the best of luck with the release contemporary festive jingle!
Alt-rocker INJIN is no stranger to the rock’n’roll lifestyle having rubbed shoulders with members from the likes of Santana and The Jimi Hendrix Experience and now he has released his 80s infused track, ‘Tennessee’.
I N J I N’s difficult past gave him knowledge and experience and he soon grew in confidence to push musical boundaries in re-arranging songs from the likes of Pink Floyd, Ten Years After and Deep Purple with his cover band, Ruby Spoon. I N J I N took the name Ruby Spoon to America where his strong vocals made him stand out amongst the crowd.
I N J I N believes that music has lost the personal touch that it once had, so his aim with ‘Tennessee’ was to bring back the emotive edge using forgotten instruments that blend beautifully with his raw vocals. Exploring different moods within a distinctive 80s synth-rock sound, I N J I N’s music has a mystically haunting aura, marrying pacific wind instruments with electric guitars and deep synths.
The alternative rock group Lasso Moon release the addictive single ‘Kimota Codeine’ alongside this raw honest music video. The video was inspired by Jim Jarmusch’s ‘Down By Law’, which was shot in black and white with no cutaways. The group found this made the video reflect their honest image and enhanced the single’s theme of transformation.
Underwater artist Christy Lee Rogers collaborates with fellow artist and musician Ryan Murphy to form the alternative rock duo Bayonesse. The internationally known artists have switched their passion from art to the medium of music after finding it was a more ‘powerful and intense’ art form for expressing thought and emotion.
Their debut indie rock single ‘Angel Touching Down’ is taken from their upcoming album ‘Bleeding Heart’. The single has been releases alongside an underwater music video filmed and directed by Rogers herself.
The music video stars actress Elisabeth Donaldson and Bayonesse themselves. Edited by award winning filmmaker Ray Izad-Mehr, gives life to the darkness and turmoil underlying their heart-felt lyrics.

Seemingly taking inspiration from the cheerleaders in Nirvana’s iconic ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ Video, Inheaven have release the visuals to their track, ‘Treats’.
The guitars are loud and heavy and the vocals are as gritty as they come, but the focus really falls on the content of the video.
Inheaven seem to mock the stereotypical pop video with the cheerleading dance routine taking centre stage, yet this contrasts weirdly and satisfyingly with the band’s deep, grungy sound. Bassist and singer, Chloe, is even covered in blood right at the end of the video, for what reason is not clear, but this simply demonstrates some of the band’s odd artistic influences. Supposedly, the band were inspired by several film moments from directors such as David Lynch and Stephen King as well as the Dadaism art movement founded in the early 20th century.
‘Treats’ is not just a cool video, it’s a great track too.
Electro-rockers Everything Under have released the new video for their track, ‘Happy Matters’
The single follows on from ‘Team’ which exhibited the dark, industrial style that Everything Under have honed and perfected.
Naturally, as an electro-rock group, there is a definite 80s vibe to the band’s music, particularly ‘Happy Matters’, which recalls the sounds of bands like Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Bronski Beat. However, Everything Under are reinventing the genre and making it more accessible for modern audiences.
‘Happy Matters’ would sound perfectly at home in a warehouse rave, as can be seen from the trippy video that accompanies the track.
The song is taken from the upcoming album, Where Have the Kids Gone at Night?
