Sunflower Bean share new single ‘In Flight’

Sunflower Bean – ‘In Flight’

This week saw Sunflower Bean release their latest album, ‘Headful of Sugar’. To coincide with the release the band also shared the latest single from the album, ‘In Flight’, and you can listen to to song above.

Of the track and video Nick Kivlen says,

This song is a romantic vision of meeting a lover, running away together, and entering a dangerous new world. It’s less safe but also less suffocating. The video follows me through a series of twilight zone-style mishaps as I search to be seen or understood. Things only improve when I finally find like-minded people. Is it a dream? Is it the multiverse? It’s for the viewer to decide.”

Get the album here.

Asylums return with new single ‘Crypto Klepto’

Asylums – ‘Crypto Klepto’

This week saw the return of Asylums with their brand new single, ‘Crypto Klepto’, which you can check out above.

Describing their new single, producer Dave Eringa says:

“I can honestly say this is one of the most unhinged songs I’ve ever produced & up above 215bpm one of the fastest too!! At that speed it’s genuinely difficult to get it this heavy but the booming tom overdubs & the phalanx of fuzz guitars that annex the second verse get us there I think and the “Lalala” backing vocals notch the crazy up a level too!! Wild punk rock insanity!!!! Love it!”

More from the band here.

Crows share video for ‘Closer Still’

Crows – ‘Closer Still’

We continue our News Report with another band sharing a new video this week was Crows for their new track, ‘Closer Still’. The song is the album opener for latest record, ‘Beware Believers’, and you can watch the video above.

One of several unapologetically political songs on the album, where single James Cox says, “‘Closer Still’ was written about the fit-for-work scandals that kept happening where the Department for Work & Pensions were deeming people fit for work when they obviously weren’t able to, taking away what little support they received from the state in an attempt to save on expenditure. It really highlighted our government’s contempt for the vulnerable. People whose daily lives were incredibly difficult.”

New hard rock group Iconic release debut single ‘Nowhere To Run’

Iconic – ‘Nowhere To Run’

New hard rock supergroup Iconic have shared their debut single, ‘Nowhere To Run’, which you can check out above.

The band features Michael Sweet (guitars), Joel Hoekstra (guitars), Marco Mendoza (bass), Tommy Aldridge (drums), and Nathan James (vocals).

“This was a very refreshing and unique experience. Musically, very different from Stryper, which is of course very different from all the other projects I am involved with. This is more of a throwback to the past and it felt good to do that. It reminded me of how great the music of the past really is” says Michael Sweet.

“Once the songs were arranged, I booked a studio and recorded my guitar parts, which is always the funnest part for me. I’m not sure why, but I guess because I’m a guitar player first and foremost and it’s just one of the most creative and fun parts of the process for me. To be able to get the right tone and play the right parts and hear it all come together….it’s very rewarding” he adds.

“The riffs were all very comfortable to me because I wrote most of them. 😀 I definitely have a great comfort level playing with Tommy Aldridge that’s developed over the last 8 years or so with Whitesnake. I’ve also co-written with Nathan, Michael, and Alessandro in the past, so everything felt very natural despite this being a “new” band” says Joel Hoekstra. 

“Michael asked me to write riffs without an arrangement (as he did with George Lynch on the Sweet & Lynch records) and then he arranged them with what he had written. I wrote melodic/hard rock riffs as that was the vibe we had discussed and then all the solo parts had more to do with trying to compliment Nathan’s vocal melodies and of course add a bit of fire” he continues.

“I am on an album with so many of my heroes and it feels amazing, to be honest. I was lucky enough to be involved in the writing of a couple of songs, but genuinely everything I hear from the guys, I knew I could do it justice. I also feel that the guys wrote stuff that suited my voice perfectly. These are not only great musicians, they are great songwriters.

I practiced the songs a lot beforehand and then I recorded all my vocals at an amazing studio in only four afternoon sessions. I wanted to make sure it sounded like me and that my vocals had the precision that I’m so used to hearing from my vocal heroes, whom many of the guys in the band have played with. And of course, I was very aware that I would be on songs with the vocal master that is Michael Sweet. I felt the pressure for sure, but I just did what I felt worked and I’m so happy with the final result” says Nathan James.

“It was a blast playing some fresh, new material. Rehearsing, trying out parts virtually was not as much fun as doing it live, but considering the global circumstances, I‘ll take it. I just try to create a supportive environment for all involved while having fun in the process. It was easy to do as these songs really play themselves. It was a true labor of love, so very little work at the end of the day” adds Tommy Aldridge.

The single will feature on debut album, ‘Second Skin’ which arrives June 17th.

News Report

As always we conclude our News Report with the latest additions to our ‘Discover’ New Music Playlist, where we highlight the best new music from around the world.

Personal Trainer – ‘Rug Busters’

Amsterdam’s seven-piece Personal Trainer return with joyful new single ‘Rug Busters’

Vocalist Willem Smit says of their new single:

“I wanted to make a song to dance to for everybody – no one excluded. The idea was to make a song that brings people closer to each other, no matter who they are, who they are with, what they believe or what they’ve done. 

“Dance”, “Dance Dance Dance” and “Song 2 Dance 2” were three of the working titles before I settled on “Rug Busters” – “busting a move” meets “cutting a rug” or something.”

Krush Puppies – ‘Throw Me On The Fire’

Krush Puppies share new single ‘Throw Me On The Fire’, taken from debut EP ‘Love Kills The Demons’.

Vocalist and guitarist Jenny says on the single, “The song kind of acts as a confessional booth, it asks you to confide your darkest secrets within it, but questions the cost. The chant at the end urges you to face your demons instead of putting them onto someone else’s shoulders.”

Jack Valero – ‘Heaven Help Me’

The Brighton-based singer-songwriter Jack Valero is back with new single, ‘Heaven Help Me’.

Jack says, “I think every songwriter at the moment has their lockdown song. I suppose this is mine, but it covers far more for me than what the world was going through. It also covers what I was going through personally at the time,  so it all wraps up into one and is presented in a way that can apply to any age and any time. It’s a song for lockdown, it’s a song for me and it’s a song for anyone struggling with the reality of their own existence. I like to be inclusive.”

The Blinders release video for ‘Fight For It’

The Blinders – ‘Fight For It’

This week saw The Blinders release the video for their recent single, ‘Fight For It’. You can watch the video above.

Regarding the song vocalist and guitarist Thomas Hayward says, “It’s about waking up and seizing the day with both your hands firmly gripped round its neck, to the point where you know you’re a better person by the end of it.
 
“I had a lot to say about the matter, so subconsciously probably chose the song we’d worked on the least, in terms of seeing how far we could push it musically and made up for it lyrically. 
 
“Usually, as a band, we’d rarely let a song exist in such a basic form… but upon writing the lyrics the tone was right. The words came very fast. When all was said and done it was probably over in about half an hour. 
 
“It’s the lightest song we’ve done. Not something you’d usually expect from the band, and not necessarily a place where I’m particularly comfortable drawing from. Give me brick and barbed wire over sunshine any day. I’ve got a soft spot for it though.”

LIFE debut ‘Almost Home’

The last new release in our News Report this week comes from LIFE who have debuted their newest track, ‘Almost Home’. The track will feature on upcoming third album, ‘North East Coastal Town’.

Speaking on the new single vocalist Mez Green says: “Almost Home barks, jolts, jerks and spits with the theme of pining to be home and thus chimes with North East Coastal Town’s over-riding sense of belonging. ‘Taste the difference…feel significant…hold a lifeline, you’re almost home!”  Almost Home is a song that wrestles with ego and love, with love winning; ”Recipe, I ain’t a cult recipe.”

News Report

As always we finish our News Report with the latest additions to our ‘Discover’ New Music Playlist! Featured this week are:

‘Night’ – Oakman

France based pop/rock trio, Oakman debut their brand new single, ‘Night’.

This song was written in one day,” says the band. “Marine had just learned that she might have a serious health problem. Without knowing it, Geremia sent an idea for a riff to Marine that day, who was instantly inspired by the mood. It matched so well with what she was feeling at the time that the whole song was written in one go. She was in a very special mental state that day. It was a kind of happy-sad nostalgia of life. Between the reality of losing everything and the people that you love and the strong desire to just live and exist. We spend our time complaining but when life can suddenly stop, that’s when we realise how much the smallest thing is worth. This song was like a mourning, a last night before everything stops forever.
It’s the first time we wrote such a personal song and it’s one of our favourite tracks. It allowed Marine to not sink that day.”

‘Halo’ – Blue Violet

‘Halo’ will feature on the upcoming album, ‘Late Night Calls’ from husband/wife duo Blue Violet.

Ahead of the forthcoming release of ‘Late Night Calls’ Sam and Sarah Gotley explain: 

“All in all, the thing we enjoyed most while recording the album was the opportunity to be experimental with sound on top of the structures we had already put in place during the writing and pre-prod processes. We got very lucky to find a like-minded team of people to work with and a beautiful location to match. Coming off the back of a good couple of years in our previous band Broken Bones Matilda, we had no idea that our goals and choice of music we wanted to make would change, but it feels like this album is the start of something long and fruitful and that we’ve found out who we are and what we want to say.” 

‘The Concrete of Moulded Men’ – Eat Your Own Head’

Norwich alt-rock newcomers Eat Your Own Head feature with new track ‘The Concrete of Moulded Men’.

Commenting on the track, vocalist Ash Woolnough said: “‘The Concrete of Moulded Men’ is a sledgehammer to the slab of toxic masculinity. When writing the track, we wanted it to be fierce, hard, and unrelenting to reflect the kind of feelings and pressures that are put on men.” 

“I didn’t have any friends that played music when I was growing up, and It would feel embarrassing to say no to football or something like that because I wanted to play guitar and sing. I started making up reasons and hiding it, which was obviously not the right thing to be doing. This track is basically saying don’t worry about all that nonsense”
