Play air harmonica along to The NaveBlues

Norwegian 4 piece The NaveBlues are bringing a new and exciting edge to blues. Nave Pundik, lead singer and harmonica player has a harmonica tone like you’ve never heard, like hearing a harmonica put through Jimi Hendrix’s pedal board, its glorious.

Their self titled album really brings together the bands love of indie, soul and rock blending them with blues seamlessly. Track one ‘Sexy Kiss’ sounds like a mash up of early 00’s indie and traditional blues with searing harmonica over a guitar riff that could be taken straight from a Libertines album or early Kings of leon.

However this is most definitely blues.

‘In a quiet place’ strips things back to piano and male female vocals bouncing back off each other creating a warming bluesy wash, whilst ‘Early in the Morning’ and Led Zep cover ‘Thank you’ see the band show off their musical prowess. Blistering guitar solo’s, astounding harmonica breaks, everything that makes you say ‘niiiiiiice’ while you recline back in your chair and sip your whisky. Thats where The NaveBlues shine, they make give blues a new life, make it fresh!

Give the video for the lead track from their album ‘The NaveBlues’, ‘Possess You’ below.

Forget Sheffield, Italy’s Answer To Arctic Monkeys Can Be Found In Indie Band ‘Five o Five’!

 

When you think of the worlds most famous and current Indie-Rock bands, Arctic Monkeys, White Stripes and The Libertines are just some of the names that come to mind, but a new batch of 18 year old musicians have decided to put their stamp on things.

Five o Five, or also known as Piero (guitar/lead vocals), Andrea (drums), Riccardo (bass) and Alessandro (keyboards), are debuting with their first studio album ‘@Y&!‘, and with first single ‘Where They Bring Sophie’. 

Five o Five’s beginnings originate through Piero and Andrea meeting at school when they were just 14, in a P.E.(Physical Education). This we be where they would have the idea to start creating music together, soon they would gain a bass player, Riccordo (who bought his first bass from his brother for 15 euro’s). After this, they would soon end up a four-piece, having keyboard player, Alessandro joining them on their journey.

Now a fully fledged band, with songs and a exhilarating live set, they have supported and played with acts like Pop_X, I Camillas and Rezophonic, Five o Five are now taking flight on their own and have released a brand new single and debut album, which is a worthy entry into the world of Indie-Rock.

album-artwork

From sharing a stage with Peace and Bastille to touring America with platinum selling Third Eye Blind, indie rock group Eden Royals return with highly anticipated EP ‘Time Won’t Wait’. Exploring the day to day problems of a “getting by lifestyle”, ‘Time Won’t Wait’ speaks out to everyone and anyone.

Eden Royals got their lucky break in the most unique of ways when one of the members answered the door to their neighbour of 16 years, who in fact owns Cutmore Records. After hearing their demos, Eden Royals were signed and haven’t stopped since. The boys performed at Liverpool Sound City Festival in 2015, gaining them the title of Daily Mirror’s top bands at the event.

 

Time Won’t Wait’ is set to release March 10th alongside the homemade music video, showing Eden Royals touring America.

Kid Cupid releases ‘Broken Down’ controlled by Laura Shaw’s enchanting vocals

Indie-electro group Kid Cupid have returned with single ‘Broken Down’ exploring internal conflicts and fusing genres to create an entirely unique sound. The quartet have a original outlook on life, looking at the wider picture rather than focusing on individual relationships. This is shown in their latest single about someone fighting back and making a change for the better.

Geordie lead singer Laura Shaw is a huge advocate for equality in the industry and feels very strongly about current attitudes worldwide towards gender divides. Shaw’s strong vocals control the music, with gang vocals layered to form an enchanting sound.

Glasgow rockers Catholic Action dedicate latest single to pop star Rita Ora

cvntzyowiaawf2j

Glasgow based rock band Catholic Action dedicate their latest single to pop star ‘Rita Ora’. Although not very rock and roll, the quartet found they were creating ‘nonsense lyrics’ in the studio and the single suddenly became dedicated to British singer Rita Ora.

Only a few months ago Rita showed her appreciation to the rockers by tweeting about how the single is the “best song I’ve ever heard” to her 5.8m followers, to which Catholic Action replied “we love you too, Rita Ora”.

Front man Chris McCrory tells NME “we’ve got a Soundcloud playlist of about 50 songs that we recorded on our phones and kind of forgot about. In fact, that’s where ‘L.U.V’ and ‘Rita Ora’ came from – they were stupid little things we never really planned to record, but when we went and listened back to them, you could tell there was something there…” If this is anything to go by then hopefully there will be many more quirky tracks to come.

The story of Injin

injin-tennessee-1024x1024

They don’t come much more intriguing than the mysterious, yet talented Injin whose music evokes many of the same sentiments. A mixing pot of both natural and synthetic sounds, paired with soaring, yet modest vocals create a sound that simply has to be heard to be appreciated.

But that’s just my opinion. Take a listen for yourself.

You can even find out a little about the man behind the music if you head on over to his website. Here’s part one of Injin’s story:

When we were kids, our brains were like sponges, soaking up anything and everything of life, especially things that appealed to us (e.g our first teddy bear, toy, or train set, etc.)

Mine.. was a tin Drum. We remember certain awards given to us collectively or verbally for our achievements. Something in the sports fields, or taking apart a watch, or machine and finding out how it works, and putting it back together again. My life was music from day one, listening to my mother Joan, singing in the kitchen of our home. Joan had a lovely voice, my father Stan also had a lovely voice. And the house was always full of music, mostly mother singing on her own.

Neither parent were professional, My mother a proud housewife, and my father a Manager of one Company or another. But at parties, Stan would be mimicking America’s Bing Crosby, Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra’s voices well, in the next breath.. a very convincing comical George Formby. Joan had a rhaspy voice, and also sang well known songs, but only at parties, and a few quiet country pubs later in life. They were well loved. But I loved music in every sense of the word. I was considered a natural in rhythm, timing and balance.

Then there were the days of the swinging 60’s, whereby Big Dance Bands, Jazz Bands, Dixie, and early Rock + Roll, Flower power, were hitting the scenes, and everything was truly buzzing. You would always find me analysing musical parts, why they put a musical piece in one position, of a music score, or song, but left a space in another. And finding out why or how it worked. I had quite a few nice friends, but something happened to me, when I was just 7 yrs old. I suddenly stopped ‘growing’…

If that isn’t intriguing, I don’t know what is…
