LISTEN: C Duncan – ‘Nothing At All’

March 28, 2017 in News

Glasgow-based composer/producer C Duncan is sharing ‘Nothing At All’, the B-side to new single ‘Like You Do’.

‘Like You Do’ is the latest slice of recent record The Midnight Sun to get a single release. It’s flipside is a woozy, opiate-warm rush of fantastical synthery and thick vox – it’s a blinding counterpoint that offers mysterious pleasure in spades.

‘Nothing At All’ sees Duncan conjure majestic textures and layers, whirling them all together in a heady haze of psychedlic electronic pop. Much like the classic 4AD releases he’s shown his love for, this is an all-compassing piece of music that whisks you into sparkling, spangly worlds.

C Duncan plays Hare & Hounds Birmingham on Mon 8th May 2017. Tickets available here.

LISTEN: The Good Water – ‘Mansaid’

February 10, 2017 in News

The Good Water release their new single ‘Mansaid’ on Friday 10th February.

The new single from Birmingham based garage psych-rockers showcases psych-pop harmonies alongside frantic riffs and comes hot on the heels of their previous single ‘See Your Light’. This received airplay from Steve Lamacq, Mary-Anne Hobbes and Shaun Keaveny at BBC 6Music, as well as tastemakers at Amazing Radio and influential LA stations KROQ and Indie 1031.

Since forming in early 2015, The Good Water have been busy. The boys quickly picked up loyal support from Brum Radio with their drone-rock debut single ‘Everything Is’, gained new fans at raucous shows around the Midlands and blew away audiences supporting Mercury Rev, Super Furry Animals and Bill Ryder-Jones at Lunar Festival. The duo’s brand of psychedelic rock grooves, obscure lyrics and nimble riffs is streamlined into tight garage-pop frameworks. The press have been quick to spot their talents, with rave reviews from Soundsphere Magazine, Ear To The Ground Music, Slap Magazine, Diamond Deposits, Born Music Online and Mytacism Music amongst many others.

Watch: The Staves – ‘Teeth White’

June 19, 2015 in News

The Staves are pleased to unveil the video for their new single ‘Teeth White’.

Shot at Le Bar à Bulles in Paris and directed by La Blogotheque, ‘Teeth White’ is the latest track to be lifted from The Staves’ acclaimed second album, If I Was. The track was produced by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. 

Teeth White is a song about feeling like no matter what you do, it’s never good enough. It’s really a song about the frustration of being held back and not being free. We were so excited to team up with the the wonderful folks of La Blogotheque once more to create this video. We would like to thank all the people in Paris who volunteered to be in it with us!

If I Was is out now through Atlantic Records. It marks The Staves’ first Top 20 UK album and has received high praise on both sides of the Atlantic.

“Songs of love, loss and heartache, the 12 tracks here see the Staves shake off their home-counties roots and go stellar.” – Sunday Times

“Every once in a while, an album comes along that just breaks you. For me so far this year, that has been the Staves’ sophomore album, If I Was, an unexpected master class in both vulnerability and resilience.” – Vulture

“The Staves and Justin Vernon are a match made in heaven.” – Daily Express

THE STAVES PLAY THE INSTITUTE BIRMINGHAM ON SUNDAY 1ST NOVEMBER 2015, WITH SUPPORT FROM GABRIEL RIOS. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE HERE

Watch: Gabrielle Aplin – ‘Light Up The Dark’

May 20, 2015 in News

Following the success of her debut album English Rain, Bath-born songstress Gabrielle Aplin announces details of the release of her eagerly anticipated second album Light Up The Dark. 

New single and title track ‘Light Up The Dark’ sees Gabrielle adopt a much heavier, darker sound than the gentle folk-pop of her debut release. Influenced by Joni Mitchell and the production on Feist’s The Reminder, Gabrielle says:

“I’ve become much more comfortable writing songs about other people’s stories as well as my own, much of which is inspired by travelling and everything I’ve seen since my first album.”

Light Up The Dark is released on September 18th and is available to pre-order now from here.
