Westcountry folk-rock duo Sound of the Sirens released brand new album This Time in early 2019 on independent label DMF Records.

Their debut album For All Our Sins was released in 2017 to wide praise including from R2 Magazine who called it a “stunning debut collection”. New album This Time continues to showcase an evident gift for crafting unique, vivid and enduring melodies with 15 catchy and heartfelt songs all written by Sound of the Sirens, aka Abbe Martin and Hannah Wood, whose voices harmonise beautifully throughout the album.

Their live shows combine a natural facility for connecting with their audiences and unforgettable performances with warmth, humour and, above all, real conviction.

Listen to ‘Troubles’ below:

Dubbed ‘the poet of our time’ Samantics is a one-man wall of sound with his unique blend of live, multi-instrumental spoken word. It is hard-hitting, musical poetry, with a sprinkle of hip-hop. With a loop station and a sh*t load of instruments, Samantics delivers a refreshing and heartfelt sound. With more energy than a ferret after 18 shots of espresso, the effort and concentration he puts into his live shows leaves audiences transfixed.  If you’re more into drinking tea than murking Gs then Samantics is one to watch!

Samantics is an advocate for Mental Health and uses his music to express his own experiences and inform others to try and reduce the stigma many still face today. He has spoken at The Houses of Parliament to show how music and the arts can impact mental health. Since stepping onto the scene with his trusty loop pedal in 2015,  Samantics has taken huge strides. He is now filling festival tents (including Glastonbury Festival, Bearded Theory & Beautiful Days) and has supported the likes of Frank Turner, The Sugar Hill Gang, Sound of the Sirens, The Undercover Hippy and Goldie Lookin’ Chain. He was recently awarded ‘Best Solo Male – South West’ in the LWM Awards and has been played on BBC 6 Music by Steve Lamacq, who called him ‘A really clever fella… funny, entertaining, engaging and moving’
