Definitely a case of standing room only onboard this bus as Fergus McKay and his band, Nothing Concrete, perform their latest single, Old Black Crow, in the vehicle which has been reappropriated as a theatre. With an all-female tap-dancing brass section and a rip-roaring tale of derring-do as witnessed by a by-standing crow, this is close to uncategorisable and all the better for it.
Hailing from California has it’s advantages. For 13-year-old Hitha, it means that sun-kissed positivity is inherent to her music.
Recent release ‘Standing Up with Pride’ is case and point. Like many teenagers, Hitha has found the demands on her time overwhelming. From homework to peer pressure, sometimes it just seems like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel.
This is a single which addresses this and gives listeners of all ages a message of hope – that by focusing on what you want to achieve in life, you can use a positive mentality to overcome any hurdle. With a video which cleverly uses black and white imagery transforming into a world of colour when Hitha realises her potential.
Read what Hitha has to say about the track over on The Pop Playlister.

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.
The beautifully filmed video to one of the tracks featured on Ben Ridley’s forthcoming album, Sing.
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
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.
This. Is. Hypocrisy. The Lyric/music video for this momentous tune, which is making the rounds in politically driven music. The idea of making people aware came from Hitch’s(lead singer) mind, and the passion he uses to drive his projects.
After being urged to learn to play an instrument by his wife, Hitch made every effort he could to practice and learn producing, recording and performing live.
This dark, twisted lyric video includes images to stun, which will make people remember the video and what its trying to get across.
Ridiculously catchy brainy-pop from singer-songwriter Bryony Dunn, Golden Girl is a never-more-poignant nod at the bizarre world of what celebrity (whatever that now means).
To support the release, Bryony is appealing to music fans Uk-wide to nominate their local red telephone box, as she looks to embark on the smallest UK tour of all-time! Get in touch via her social media links at the bottom of the page!
