Saint Mars shine a light on children isolated through bullying with ‘Ocean Blues’ video

Rock

Saint Mars have unveiled a brand new video for Ocean Blues [Acoustic Version].

The visual sees guest vocalist Tryzdin Grubbs performing alone on a stage in front of pastel-striped boards that read ‘Love’. The makeshift backdrop, along with the polished wooden stage, mimics the setting of a talent show that has long since finished.

Tryzdin’s seismic vocal performance narrates the plot of a young boy isolated in his home and school life, haunted by shadows. Eventually, the grey-hued surroundings are swapped for lush forest greenery when the boy appears as an adult to meet the person who promising to bring peace to his demons.

Saint Mars are gearing up for the release of ‘Celesteville’, due out later this year. The concept of the album is centered on the true story of one 13 year-old boy’s tragic experience as a result of sustained bullying. The band enlisted the vocals of viral sensation Tryzdin to give authenticity to the tracks sung by the protagonist, little realising that Tryzdin himself has suffered significantly as a result of bullying.

Video of the Week: Georg Roman’s ‘Forever’

Classical, Pop, Rock, Uncategorized

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!

Uncategorized

win tracks set to be unleashed from a galaxy far far away on September 14th

An Oxford based band who specialise in lush indie rock with great production value but a gritty feel, SinFiction are ready to rock this summer with double single releases ‘Painted Memories’ and ‘Ugly Baby’.

With a huge sound that stretches from the likes of Oasis to Kings of Leon via the Killers and early Strokes, they are already making waves in the industry having supported Alabama 3, Ocean Colours Scene, Steve Cradock and Toploader. Already making a splash with local papers and radio – including BBC Introducing – in Oxfordshire, the stage is now set for the band to break out into the wider UK consciousness.

It’s an ambition that isn’t too far from their grasp, as their brand of brash, energetic rock has already won over enough fans to crowdfund the £6000 production of these two singles. And with a dedicated fan base like that already behind them, they are on track to win over even more.
