Now that the novelty of an extra hour in bed has truly worn off and 2019 is well within reaching distance, it’s time for us to light up your Monday with a much needed music round-up.
Whilst plotting out debut album campaigns, festival announcements, sell-out tours and everything in between, we’ve been busy guys of late. So whether you’re getting ready to go and watch the loudest light show of the year with your least favourite effigy in flames, or just staying in to comfort your four legged pals, we feel it would be treasonous not to take a look at our latest projects below…
Alicia Keys’ protege releases ‘art rap’ debut
Bristolian trio headline Village Underground on sold out UK tour
Tropical pop princess headlines Scala and covers UK garage classic
Wrapping up the successful ‘Vessel of Love‘ album campaign, Hollie Cook has been busy spreading her lovers rock sound around the UK on her recent tour, including a sold out night at London’s Scala. Hollie also treated us to her sugary version of Shanks & Bigfoot’s UK garage classic ‘Sweet Like Chocolate‘, which earned her inches in the The Guardian Guide’s pages yet again. Speaking to LA Weekly before her US run, Hollie said she’s already thinking about the next record… so keep your eyes peeled.
TILFINNINGAR VINA MINA
Tilfinningar Vina Mina released their debut EP ‘Tónlist hljómar samt betur með þér‘ via Outpost distribution last month – now try saying that after drinking a bottle of Brennivín… The stylized band from Iceland create an eclectic style of electronic experimentalism and have dropped an exclusive selection of vinyl at the Reykjavik Music Market. If you happen to be in town this week for Airwaves, be sure to hit us up for a ten pound pint!
