Turn off the radio and tune in to our Top underground UK based tunes of the week.
This week we are showcasing five of the stand-out British artists we have discovered this week. There is a huge dearth of talent floating about in the UK at the moment and we have decided to group them together today and let you all hear what we are hearing on a daily basis. Forget the radio for a few minutes and take in our certified fresh finds from the UK this week.
This week we feature music from SARA / Hannah Halfpenny / BOII / Two Weeks In Nashville / Flower Vision
Two Weeks In Nashville / Don’t Give In
Fresh off a sold out show at the Camden Assembly last month. South London rock and rollers Two Weeks In Nashville grace us with their debut single Don’t Give In. The band have been working around the clock recording their opening releases in the prestigious Abbey Road Studio over the last few months and today is the day of the first awaited release. Taking influence from the likes of U2 and Courteeners. They are a talented young rock band that are ready to fill in the void on the rock and roll scene in recent years. Don’t Give In is a confident debut single and a sign of prosperous things to come.
Check out the hotly tipped debut single from Two Weeks In Nashville below. Freshly Pressed.
SARA / Little Nerves
Another artist with a Camden Assembly connection here. SARA is an exciting new artist on the scene and she plays at The Camden Assembly on February 12th in support of Sarpa Salpa. Her debut release Little Nerves has just surfaced and we love it. Her voice is pleasant and the background stop-start instrumentation gives this one a stand-out glow. This is a smartly compiled track which showcases the undoubted talent of this young up and comer from Hemel Hempstead.
She could well be the greatest export to come out of Hemel since LadBaby!!! (She’s far more talented)
Hannah Halfpenny / Time To Go
We give you yet another talented newbie on the scene here with the smooth as silk vocals of Hannah Halfpenny this time. This is yet another impressive debut single surfacing this week. Her first ever song Time To Go is a thing of beauty. Her vocal really has an edge to it – her singing style is nicely natural, which is rare these days.
She is only nineteen and has the whole world at her feet. A stand out talent!! I am really interested to follow her progression. I’m a big fan already! Haunting.
BOII / Footwork
BOII is a transatlantic project consisting of Brooklyn based producer Joshua Hoisington and London based vocalist Adam Welsh. The fact that these two are churning out tracks together is a stark reminder of the power of the internet. Welsh and Hoisington met at a theater in NYC one night and hit it off together. They vowed to make music together and through the power of e-mail, Hoisington started sending Welsh his instrumentals and BOII was officially born. 3000 miles apart in the early beginnings, now the pair are touring together with gigs in London, Zurich and Brussels penciled into the diary.
Their latest single Footwork is a nice blend of pop/electro fusion. They have something good going. Their London show is actually tonight 5th Decemeber at The Waiting Room and I think I will go! (I’m writing this at 5:30, 5th November in a pub in Marylebone :D)
Flower Vision / Call Me Luv
Flower Vision is the brain child of Constantine Chatziviltsos. The sound he creates is a melancholic soundscape that takes influence directly from his long commutes around London on the train. His high octane Indie release Call Me Luv landed on my lap during the week and I like the throwback synth-y feel to it! His style is pretty loud, yet, quite relaxing. This is old school music here from Chatziviltsos and music that I find interesting.
Check out Call Me Luv from Flower Vision below.
