Estrella announce release of their new single “Here I Am”

00 - Estrella - Promo - Hi Res

Scottish rock four-piece Estrella reveal the first single to be released from their second album. The much anticipated track, aptly named, “Here I Am’’ is set for release 24th November.

The inspiration for the track was drawn from the guys becoming fed up of being told they need to ‘get real jobs’, so in true musician style, they reacted by writing a killer song. Proud of what they do and echoing their own journey, the words ratify the need to follow your own fate.

The track rings true to Estrella’s energetic rock sound and the production is absolutely seamless. The thoughtful lyrics, teamed with powerful guitar riffs is the stuff rock hits are made of.

Some very talented veterans of the rock world have lent their hands to the making of Estrella’s new album and the album has a provenance most rock bands would envy.

“Here I am’’ was recorded at the infamous Rockfield Studios, Wales. The very studios in which Queen recorded hit, “Bohemian Rhapsody”.  John T Sinclair, who has worked with rock heavyweights ‘Uriah Heep’, ‘The Cult’ and ‘Ozzy Osbourne band’, co-wrote and co-produced “Here I am”.  Production on the second album was overseen by Nick Brine, who has worked with and contributed to the global success of legends, The Darkness, Bruce Springsteen and Oasis.

With this hearty mix of rocking talent coming together on one project, the new album is undeniably bound for greatness. You can hear their new single ‘Here I Am’ on the link below:

Estrella have been moving from strength to strength over summer and have made appearances at a wealth of rock festivals.  Dave Ritchie from Wildfire Festival (previously Les-Fest) described Estrella as,

The most exciting and entertaining, live rock band in the country, Estrella give 100% every time, simply unmissable!”.

Hard Rock Hell Festival  said, These boys know how to rock!”.

With fans of the band including Classic Rock Magazine and XFM presenters Tom Russell and noted music tastemaker Jim Gellatly, as well as setting off on a European Tour in November with Gilby Clarke (Guns N’ Roses ex-guitarist) you will be hearing plenty more of Estrella in the coming months

Hercules Morse takes you to the ‘Edge of Life’ with new release

Front Cover - Edge of Life EP by Hercules Morse

New music from South Coast rockers released October 27th

A Southampton based rock group with such an impressive live show that Turbowolf said they “wished they sounded like” them, Hercules Morse are a four piece hard rock band with a sound that moves between heavy and stoner rock.

Their new release, ‘Edge of Life’, is unleashed next month and continues their penchant for creating hard edged rock tunes that still carry a melodic, infectious punch.

Listen to ‘How Do You Love Me’ taken from the EP here: https://soundcloud.com/hercules-morse/how-do-you-love-me

Recorded and mixed by Neil Kennedy (Burn The Fleet, Landscapes, Press to Meco, Don Broco) of Ranch Production house, and mastered by Alan Douches (Brand New, Bowling for Soup, Cannibal Corpse, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Sepultura), this is fresh new rock music which deserves to be found by hardcore rock fans specifically and music fans in general.

 

Their upcoming video also hints at their inherent sense of humour when it comes to the music, taking a tongue in cheek look at 90s nostalgia –featuring none other than former Fun House presenter Pat Sharp – so keep your eyes peeled for that on October 31th (shortly after ‘Edge of Life’ is out).

 

The new music represents the start of a new chapter for a band that, in a previous five-piece set-up, received plaudits from Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson, as well as national press coverage from the likes of Kerrang Radio, NME, Scuzz TV and BBC 6 Music. This new release deserves to build on that success.

 

‘Edge of Life’ is released on October 27th.

Ex-busker takes to the studio and creates a gem – released 3rd November

IMG_1316

Based in North London, River Child is a solo singer-songwriter who specialises in classy, soulful indie/folk. With an off kilter, rare and distinctive voice, he is an ex-busker who has swapped the streets for the studio after getting some incredible feedback for his live performances.

For a taste of what River Child is all about, here is the title track from the EP, a treat of jangling guitars and that affecting vocal:

Listen Here:

https://soundcloud.com/river-child-songs/start-over-again

Relatively new to the London scene having started out just under a year ago, River Child is already assured in his sound. By turns haunting and melodic, it’s music that finds its way under your skin and stays there.

Helped by producer Ian Wallman, this EP is certainly something for fans of independently minded music to savour. When it comes to River Child, there are no angles or spun news stories – simply good quality music.

Adventurer’s new singles ‘Take Me Higher’ and ‘Until The Sun Goes Down’ out on the 27th October

SquareWEB

Leicestershire guys Fred Walker and Alex Jones are the pair that form electronic duo, Adventurer. With a history in the metal scene, the guys have recently turned their hand to producing electronic music and the self confessed ‘nerds’  seem to have found their calling.

‘Take Me Higher’ and ‘Until The Sun Goes Down’ are the two new singles from Adventurer, both out on 27th October.  The clean, electronic vibe and slick production paired with the of these tracks would not sound out of place played at a cool, white-furnished bar in Ibiza.

Adventurer have already supported some of the UKs biggest acts, including, Pixie Lott, Young Guns, Pendulum (DJ Set) and Get Cape Wear Cape Fly. And their music has been played numerous times by the BBC.

Fred and Alex have been good friends for many years and have worked together on a variety of music projects since their mid teens. The guys are no strangers to getting creative when it comes to performing and sharing their music. A few years ago the guys headlined at the biggest tribute festival in the UK, Glastonbudget.  In Adventurers’ words:

 

‘’ We thought we’d crash and burn but somehow we managed to get thousands of mums screaming our names, and singing with us.’’

 

Alex has even been known to grab a night’s kip on a kebab shop floor when touring in Switzerland as it was a better option than their overcrowded tour bus.

A psychedelic Melbourne based core of musicians who invite vocalists from all over the world to join their musical extravaganza, the aim of the rotating cast is to ensure they keep things fresh & vibrant, the uniqueness of Transference is an all encompassing musical fusion of Pink Floyd meets Tangerine Dream approach to the songwriting and production style which delivers the pomp & ceremony of a Rick Wakeman theatrical spectacular, no two performances are the same so the level of unpredictability of the players and their collective presentation of the music is always a welcome surprise, imagine a musical satsang that will leave you uplifted, energised & empowered. This is what you will get & more. A bold claim perhaps, but one which Transference proudly makes.

Their sound is an ensnaring blend of rhythms and melodies with lyrics inspired by the band’s take on integrating us with our mythical roots, a magical sense of awe & wonder traversing forgotten lands and ancient mythology. This is typified in the lyrics of the the new single ‘Lady Isis’

Listen to ‘Lady Isis’ here: https://soundcloud.com/ikonicartists/lady-isis-master?in=ikonicartists/

sets/the-navigators

Taken from their album “The Navigators” & released in association with Ikonic Artists, their music is hypnotic & engaging. This truly international project, captured by New York

producer Ryan Kelly & mastered by the legendary Pete Maher (U2, Jack White, The Killers, Rolling Stones) in London.With fellow musicians Tangerine Dream & Mike Oldfield among their fans, which should give you an idea of the kind of quality they bring to the table. This is not pop music in any sense, but an ongoing creative output that flows into their electrifying live performances, the band draw inspiration from the audience on stage to create a truly personal experience.

Dmitry Nechaev single ‘Memory (Unstaged)’ set for release Oct 29th

Flamboyant songwriter, Dmitry Nechaev is not the kind of artist who comes along every day. Born in Russia, his vocal is reminiscent of Savage Garden’s Darren Hayes, only with a deeper soul to the sound.

His latest single, due on October 29th, gives you a glimpse of what’s to come: https://soundcloud.com/dmitrynechaev/memory-unstaged

Watch him performing previous single ‘Anonymous’ here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWWxwiFcQYM

The single, recorded ‘as live’, is part of a larger collaborative project, stringing together a host of ‘Unstaged’ music videos to create a tightly woven plot. It’s an unusual way to release a single, but Dmitry has never done things the ordinary way.

Having toured the world while working as a model, his journey into the music industry started proper in 2008 when he won ‘Best Vocalist of the Year’ in a contest held between the leading music colleges and institutes of Moscow followed by debut album Ignis Fatuus release. For a time, he continued to work as a model, but has recently decided to make the transition to full time musician and songwriter.

Talented and creative in many fields – art, philosophy, music, writing, dance – Dmitry is an artist who will continue to work towards a career he believes to be his destiny. He is also a huge supporter of using his gifts to help others – several years ago taking part in a Moscow charity concert aimed at raising money to buy surgical equipment for Morozovsky Children’s Hospital. Being part of an event like that let him know he was on the right path, and he has not looked back since.

Eric Unseen aim to prove they have been ‘Brought Up The Right Way’ with new album

LP to be released on the same day as lead single, ‘That Ain’t Love’ – October 1st

A South Wales based boy band with a taste for energetically infectious melodies, Eric Unseen are a three piece with a growing reputation in the UK indie scene.

Having supported and gigged with a host of high profile names including Bastille, We are Scientists, The Alarm, The Stiff Little Fingers, Cast, Ocean Colour Scene, Skindred, Paramore, Goldie Lookin Chain, The Subways, and The Automatic, the band are now ramping up for further exposure with new album ‘Brought Up the Right Way’.

With a sound that comes across like a contemporary version of The Smiths with an indie twist, Eric Unseen are unlike any other band on the circuit at the moment, and aim to drive their point home with this album’s lead single – ‘That Ain’t Love’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=It5f0Oj1YBU&feature=youtu.be

The band are no strangers to the stage and have really turned heads with the quality of their live shows. In addition to the impressive list of gigs above, they also reached the final of national competition ‘Live and Unsigned’, fighting through 10,000 acts to play in the showcase event at London’s O2 arena in front of 3 thousand people.

Their success though has not gone to their heads, and they happily joke about the gig they played the next day – a small pub with seven people in it who were there to watch the football.

Fans include producers Greg Haver (The Manic Street Preachers, Cataonia, Super Furry Animals), Richard Jackson (Duffy, The Automatic) and Slade front man Noddy Holder, all impressed by Eric Unseen’s versatile and consistently high quality songwriting.

And it all comes from an outlook of simplicity and the feel of a band simply having fun, with lyrics inspired by a relatable life in ‘The Valleys’ of Wales painting a very different picture from the trashy MTV attempt at reality television.

The album and single will be available from October 1st and is being funded by new crowd funding site Free The Music Book: http://freethemusicbook.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=61
