If Coldplay were to adopt spiritualism they’d sound like Russian indie artist Stan Gemes. This epic ballad ‘Call of Ancient Love’ is the title track from the artist’s latest album and contains a winning male/female vocal combo to the accompaniment of some soaring guitars. Stan’s songs are delivered in multiple tongues, as some of the non-english vocals at the backend of the track showcase. The result is a musical melting pot of cultures.
Call of Ancient Love is set for release August 27th.

‘Build us a Dream’ has all the ingredients of a classic England football anthem. A truly high energy vocal , a very strong scent of football spirit and a really catchy sing-a-long chorus. The Turner Brothers believe it can inspire the England Team as it was the England Manager that inspired them.
The Auntie of Anthony and Patrick Turner is Roy Hodgson’s sister. A family gathering at her house is inevitably football orientated with regular discussions on Roy’s team selection and tactics for the forthcoming European Championship.
It was whilst they were at their Auntie’s that Anthony dreamt that he was watching England win the Euros and all the England supporters were singing a song they had written. Anthony told Patrick about the dream and they decided to produce a song as they believed it was a sign.
Every supporter wants to be sitting in the stands watching their favourite team play their best and some may then be inspired to write an England anthem but not many can say that the song was conceived on Roy’s sister’s sofa!
Anthony explains how the brilliant anthem came to life: When you’re surrounded by pictures of Roy Hodgson and listening to fascinating anecdotes of his career, it’s not surprising I dreamt about England winning the Euro, but they were chanting a song that I had never heard before. The next day all I could remember when I spoke to Patrick was some of the melody and ‘Come on England’ . Patrick suggested that we try and realise the vision, by writing a song called ‘Build us a dream’.
Though this track is undoubtedly a rather amusing piece in terms of its origin, The Turner Brothers are on a very serious musical journey having been voted ‘Crowds Favourite Band’ at Hogsozzle Festival both in 2014 and 2015 they are taking on the stage at this year’s Victorious Festival alongside Annie Mac and Manic Street Preachers.
UK alternative pop trio The Hallows gear up for the release of their debut album with this brand new hypnotic single ‘Element’.
As the group explains: ‘element was one of the first songs recorded and it helped to set the overall tone of the album. It was written as a positive and uplifting song about looking up to someone you love and the profound influence they can have on your life’.
Championing their own very unique sound, The Hallows are an enchanting concoction of Kate Bush, Muse, Portishead and Tori Amos with their own individual dreamy essence thrown in.
The group’s eclectic sound is a result of the band members’ individual musical meanderings. Sarah has played as a backing vocalist/keyboard/Glockenspiel for Hafdís Huld supporting the likes of Paolo Nutini, Mika and Bloc Party at festivals as large as Glastonbury and SXSW. Joe meanwhile has supported notorious cult pornographic band Rock Bitch (a band renowned for rarely sporting support acts). He and Sarah have also shared the stage with Ronan Keating playing a number of television performances.
Meeting at university, the band shared a house together, in which third band member Dave subjected the group to strict drinking game rules, whilst also ensuring they all ate proper meals (now holding the unofficial title of ‘band chef’).
Sarah has played the role of Snow White whilst working at Disneyland – several elements of this fantasy world clearly making their way into the mystical sound of ‘Element’. As a child, Sarah also lived by a zoo and was kept often awake by roaring lions (the lions would often set the wolves off too, which sounds absolutely terrifying!)
Since forming, the group have been hands on with all aspects of their music including coming up with video concepts, artwork, set design, production and blogging.
Their upcoming album Of Time and Tides is out August 29th and the single ‘Element’ is out July 4th
The group explain: ‘The album is about life, relationships and how things can change over time. The album was written in the spirit of a bygone era because we wanted to encapsulate elements within all our lives that have influenced us both musically and personally. Sarah draws inspiration for the lyrics from the elements because they represent the never ending cycle of life and time in which we exist for a moment. We have combined these influences to create an album that displays our love for atmospheric instrumentation, lush melodies and, hopefully, pop songs you will want to sing along to.’
Dan Daidone’s fresh new single ‘On a Holiday’ is an energetic, cheeky and edgy alternative rock banger that is a real display of musical experience. Distorted vocals on the verses gives the track an edge that pricks your ears up. ‘On a Holiday’ is a vibrant and exciting single and should be picked up by anyone who likes alternative rock all the way to more psychedelic progressive rock.
“With You is the perfect musical mix of dance, synthpop and indie sheen. Its bubbly rhythm-driving guitar riff feels lifted from “Songs from the Big Chair” or “Purple Rain”, bouncing with the same excitement that Michael Jackson’s guitarists brought to their hits in the 1980s” – Mitch Mosk (CEO Atwood Magazine)
Hailing from different locations across the north coast of America, The Northcoast’s three members come from New York, New Jersey and Seattle. They are the perfect example of how distance is no barrier to making music and with the aid of technology they have been emailing projects to each other and making music for over 10 years.
“With You” is their latest sparkly single, produced by Tom Lord-Alge, and is the perfect accompaniment to a long road trip or lazing on the grass on a summer’s day.
Each member of the group has played at least three instruments since childhood and this, combined with their multi-cultural backgrounds, has given the group a plethora of musical influences and experience. Combining the pumping beats of Michael Jackson and bass lines of Passion Pit and Chvrches, there really is something for everyone to enjoy.
The Northcoast have realised their childhood dream of both making and performing music. Having made an impact on the stages of Vans Warped Tour and played alongside big names such as Gia Farrell, their future is already looking bright!
Sporting some hypnotically left-field beats and a vivid introspective rapping style reminiscent of artists like Tyler, the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Flatbush Zombies and Joey Badass, Virginia Beach artist Young Malak is set to be the alternative hip hop scene’s next big star.
