Jordan Dean in-tune with his influences in upcoming EP ‘Local’

Ohio-based Jordan Dean is set to release his upcoming indie-pop EP Local on March 12th, featuring lead tracks ‘Local’ and ‘Drunk’. Despite being born and raised in Cleveland, Jordan’s new tunes touch upon his primarily British influences, whilst they also master a sound that is so naturally Jordan Dean.

Local offers 5 songs that each have a slightly different premise, with each one honing back to Jordan’s musical inspirations. The eponymous track ‘Local’ and ‘Drunk’ show a resemblance to the likes of Jamie T, Arctic Monkeys, Viola Beach and The Kooks, embodying sounds that feel real and raw. Local is readily available for listeners looking to find new and upcoming indie artists that are breaking out into the music world in 2021!

Jordan has worked tirelessly over his EP, teaming up with his producer to piece together music that will draw in crowds at festivals and fill out venues:

I told my producer that I wanted to sound like a four-piece band that packed a 300-person venue and I feel like we accomplished that on the Local EP. We said it in the studio that this EP feels like a 30-minute set that you would see in a small venue, packed with people who really want to be there.”

This is definitely something I can agree with after listening through the 5 tracks, Jordan has created the type of music that would make you stop in your tracks at Leeds Festival and leave you eager to hear out the rest of his set.

While Local is more up-beat and excitable, Jordan has a range of different tempos throughout his EP, one of those being in ‘What I’m Feeling’, which is much slower than his previously released songs. ‘What I’m Feeling’ is the type of song you listen to while staring out the window, losing yourself in the lyrics and relating them to your own personal situations. This is another talent of Jordan’s, having written all of his songs himself to such a high standard.

He wrote these songs at an age as young as 18, which is impressive when he produces lyrics which resonate within you and bring you back to another time of your life, a time with less responsibility and worries.

Jordan has recently teased another song from Local – ‘Rabbit Hole’, which you can listen to here!

Anglia Band set to release debut UK EP ‘Nothing I Can Do’

EP available from January 6th

It’s been a long time coming, but after 7 years of creating fantastic mainstream rock music and filling their website with music, Russian band Anglia are finally looking to come to the UK for a debut British release.

Fronted by singer-songwriter Nickie Sallivan, Anglia are a three piece which also includes drummer and songwriter Dimitri Stocchi and guitarist Eugine Drytine.

A huge fan of the UK Rock music scene, Sallivan writes songs which capture elements of Brit-pop, soft rock and UK indie, all with a mainstream pop flavour which gives the band a truly commercial sound.

The three track EP captures this range perfectly, from the balladeering of title track ‘Nothing I Can Do’ to the looped acoustic lines and huge rock chorus of ‘Little Happiness’, via the brit-pop stylings of ‘Mother Song’.

You can find the video for the title track here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5b5Q6jzozYs

With a music career that has seen Anglia work with promoters, record labels and management companies across the UK and Russia, the new EP promises to be another step forward for this hard working outfit.
