Alice Clayton // Magpie

📸: Shoot J Moore We stop off somewhere near Hull, UK, for the fabulous folk-y textures of Alice Clayton. Her debut EP 'Now Is Not Your Time To Speak', features four well polished introductory tracks. Magpie fell onto my lap during the week and it is my stand-out track so far. It is chirpy, vibrant and... Continue Reading →

SYML // Symmetry

Brian Fennell creates his music from his basement twenty miles from Seattle. Something truly beautiful has been cooked in that basement recently, his latest track Symmetry is a really really nice song. SYML is currently on tour in Europe and he plays his first ever London headline on October 29th at Scala. His debut solo... Continue Reading →

Andrew Marica // I Just Wanna Go

Bucharest is the home of talented singer/songwriter Andrew Marica. There is something really appealing about what I am currently doing right now here in Kent, UK.

He hails from Denver, Colorado and is currently unsigned believe it or not. He made real headway back in 2017 when his emotive folk ballad ‘Give Our Hearts Some Weight‘ amassed... Continue Reading →

Bad Flamingo – Open The Gates

Some Monday Afternoon mood music from American duo Bad Flamingo. If I was curating the songs to fit into the sequel of Django Unchained, 'Open The Gates' would be an absolute shoe-in for the soundtrack. This is a simply class track with a slight wild west tinge elevating it to higher heights than a standard... Continue Reading →

Simen Mitlid – Reality Tsars

Oh Yes. Norwegian singer/songwriter Simen Mitlid has just made one of them timeless folk ballads. Reality Tsars is like my perfect little tune to be honest. Sounding like a cross between the folk-y style of The Paper Kites and with the high pitched vocal sound of Patrick Watson, this fella has a sound to be... Continue Reading →
