Russian singer-songwriter, Georg Roman, has thrown away his pursuit of a career in sport for one in music instead, releasing his hard-hitting operatic anthem, 'Forever'.
'Forever' is song like none you have ever heard. Georg pushes boundaries with his music, creating an unusual yet surprisingly harmonious concoction of operatic, classical and even rock styles, all driven by Roman's roaring baritone voice.
Consequently, you can understand why Georg takes inspiration from a wide range of artists; everyone from Luciano Pavarotti to Eric Clapton and Joe Cocker to Placido Domingo.
Georg looks up to these stalwarts of the operatic world and it is this style he has followed that has led him to perform at well established venues such as The Bolshoi Academic Theatre and The Bonn Opera.
Although Georg originally intended to take on a career in sports, wanting to be a professional fighter or weightlifter, fans of his music will be pleased that he chose music instead- it was clearly the right choice.
Welsh singer-songwriter, Chey, has followed up her debut single, 'Dirty Love', with a song in the same alternative, electro-pop vein, entitled, 'She's Got You'.
The new track is a fusion of disquieting electronica and contemporary pop, making for a truly absorbing listen, only reinforced by the evocative music video filmed in an abandoned cotton mill in Manchester.The visuals feature some intricate choreography from a pair of talented dancers that truly complement the feeling behind Chey's lyrics.
Telling the typical story of infidelity and lost love, Chey places this common tale onto an original backdrop of her alternative style of pop. She said: “‘She’s Got You’ deals with the feelings of loss and rejection, losing someone can be a poignant moment in your life - it can also be the moment where you find your strength.”
'She's Got You' was put together with the help of famed London producer, David Ezra, who has also worked with X-Factor finalists, Reggie and Bollie in the past. On top of this, there is a remixed version of 'She's Got You' if you like your music a little more dancy!
With a lot of support to his name already, Jake Aldridge is an artist who is beginning to make his way in the music industry. His music has been played by Tom Robinson on his BBC Introducing mixtape, on Playboy TV and he was even no. 1 on Zone radio's top 40 charts.
With his latest release, entitled 'Fireman', Jake is fusing R&B with hip-hop and even a little bit of pop, with the help of Lisa Ambrose and her quality vocals.
Beginning with Lisa's pure voice and a delicate acoustic guitar, 'Fireman' quickly makes way for Jake's inventive and considered lyricism. His raps and rhymes are original and full of emotion, only adding to the feel of the track. Unlike many others, Jake was not always a musician. It wasn't until his Father passed away when he was 11, that Jake found music to be an ideal platform for expressing his emotions. He quickly found that he had a confident talent for penning lyrics and he hasn't looked back since.
Interestingly, the acoustic guitar motif continues throughout the track, lying subtly underneath the centrepiece of Jake's lyrics. Not only this, but his attitude-fuelled words and style sit in contrast to Ambrose's, almost creating two sides to the song which could be interpreted as two sides to the argument and predicament that 'Fireman' is centred around.
In terms of production, Jake has used all he skills he has learnt over his time in the industry to create a highly professional track that paves the way for him in the urban-pop scene.
Jake finds inspiration in some of the biggest names in rap and hip-hop, including greats such as Tupac Shakur and Dr.Dre. These influences evidently leak into his own style and there's hardly better artists in his genre that he could look up to.
Overall, 'Fireman' is a top-level track that anyone who likes urban music will be able to relate to. But more than that, pop fans will also find a bit of what they like with Jake's crossover style.
Genuine-article singer-songwriters are hard to find these days, but Northampton's Corinna Jane is without a doubt the real deal.
Having previously released 'Three Faces of You', an upbeat pop-rock track that exhibited her quirky personality and music to the world, Corinna has now returned with 'Echoes Of My Mind', an emotive ballad that showcases her versatile vocals and simple, yet effective songwriting approach.
This is perhaps one of Corinna's best traits as a songwriter; her ability to construct simple songs, in terms of structure and instrumentation, that allows the thought provoking subjects of her songs to take centre stage. There's nothing over the top about Corinna's music and sometimes, the most simple songs are the best.
A wavering piano lead introduces the song, setting the tone for a track we immediately seem to know will be an emotional one. It isn't long before Corinna's delicate vocals ooze into the song, showing off their range all within the first verse. Subtle string sections sit humbly in the background, adding that further bit of expertly-crafted texture.
'Echoes Of My Mind' is a dark piece of art, referencing the end and aftermath of a relationship. The track is built up to a point, in depth of instrumentation, that it truly reflects the insurmountable grief that comes from a situation such as this.
With an evocative black and white music video that perfectly accompanies the themes at play within 'Echoes of My Mind', Corinna is sure to be making waves with her quality songwriting and beautifully constructed songs.
Originally intended to open on April 3rd, the new and revolutionary talent platform, Salute, has had to push back the date for contestants to enter on accounts of the project waiting on some very exciting news.
After announcing the competition and its ethos at new London venue, Omeara, in late March, Salute were building up to the launch date, when potential ‘Music Makers’ could begin to upload their music to the platform. After this stage, all music would be evaluated and vetted, with the goal of narrowing down all applicants to a top 100.
However, this initial phase of the competition has had to be postponed as the team behind Salute are waiting to hear on some potentially game-changing additions to the project that could take it to a whole new level.
Speculation suggests that the news could relate to confirmation on an innovative partnership with one of world’s biggest and pioneering organisations, but those following the progression of this exciting new talent platform will have to wait and see.
The new date for access to all entrants will be 27th April.
What is Salute?
Salute Music Makers is a pioneering enterprise redefining the face of the music industry. The idea behind the project is to create an accessible and fair opportunity for a diverse range of music makers to showcase their talents, tapping into the DIY generation of music. Initially, hopeful applicants will upload their music to an app where it will be vetted by industry professionals, before narrowing it down to a top 100. After this stage, a public vote will pick out a top 6 who will fight it out for a £50,000 prize on the Salute live TV shows. Aiming to empower original, grass-roots music makers and distance themselves from the conventional talent shows such as The X-Factor and The Voice, Salute is leading the search for talent in a new direction.
You may recognise James Grant from this picture as the front-man of 80s group, Love and Money, but now he has returned and teamed up with producer Gordy Goudie, to form The Korvids and their brand of funky-disco for a modern audience.
The pair have labelled their new album as perfect for the older generation, who still want to bust a move or two in honour of their younger selves. Upon listening to the record, this seems like a perfect description- it has that throwback sound, reminiscent of disco and funk, with groove-heavy basslines and wah-laden guitar leads.
It's simply the kind of music that you can't dislike; it just makes you want to move, or at least tap a foot. 'Bad Faith' is a highlight, exhibiting Grant's trademark falsetto vocals and an enticing piano lead. It was even produced with the help of Steely Dan's producer, Gary Katz.
James says, “I wanted to be someone else for a while. Sound different. Write different. It can be dreary being me all the time...I sing most of my vocals on the record in falsetto, which, as we know, is the international language of disco.”
Back in the 80s, Love and Money never seemed to really hit the big time, despite Grant's talents, so he'll be hoping that his new direction in music will take hi even further. Equally, Gordy has produced for Simple Minds and has even played bass and guitar for Echo and the Bunnymen and The Primevals.
Disco lovers, whilst I'm sure you're enticed- you'll have to wait until 28th April before you can get your ears round the new album.
In the meantime, check out more on the Korvids here:
After hitting us with 'The Wayfarer' earlier this year, a song taking influence from the story of the Peace Pilgrim, Glenn Harrold has returned with 'Fading Photograph'- a track full of lost love, heartbreak and powerful emotion.
As a multi-million selling hypnotherapist for the majority of his time, Glenn touches on a wide range of topics including consciousness, love, peace and spirituality in both his work as well as his music.
You can listen to 'Fading Photograph' here:
Glenn's simple, yet effective approach to writing quality pop songs helps him explore these themes without unnecessary cryptic-lyrics and the vocal delivery of Dean Rhymes gets these ideas across perfectly with his rich and pure voice.
Glenn’s hypnotherapy career has also led to him appearing on Steve Wright’s show, Breakfast TV and Five live.
'Freedom' is the new protest song from Beldon Haigh- railing against the 45 president of the United States, Donald Trump.
I'm sure there's thousands of people out there who've been waiting for something like this and Beldon's song is a call to arms to stand up for your principles as a human being. It questions the values that President Trump is putting across, asking most predominantly, whether this is the kind of image we want to project to our children? Something Beldon feels strongly about, as a father of three.
Haigh's songwriting prowess stems from his time in the 80s, playing with bands such as Mikifin and Boxing Clever. Having honed his craft for a number of years, Beldon decided to take some time out to write his new album and 'Freedom' is one of the outcomes.
Supposedly, the idea for the song came to him in a dream and so Beldon was hasty to get it written down before he forgot it. It only took him twenty minutes.
Watch the video for 'Freedom' here:
With influences such as Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Al Stewart, Cat Stevens, Lou Reed and pop acts like Elbow, Tears For Fears, Del Amitri, and The Waterboys, Beldon has a strong inspirational pedigree that becomes evident upon listening to his powerful and emotional song writing.
After releasing their debut single ‘This Time’, which received airplay across 30 radio stations, and then receiving support from The Times with their second single ‘Only When You’re Lonely’ as one of their Essential Tracks of 2015, Apachelux have returned with ‘Waiting For The Red Light’. With influences as diverse as Maya Jane Coles, Royal Blood and Girls Aloud, Apachelux’s genre-straddling sound aims to create those ‘dancefloor moments’.
Apachelux consists of the musical minds Jay Wigmore and Louisa Strachan, who met at Village Green in 2014. The duo are based in Southend-on-Sea, currently a hub of creativity and home to an increasing number of up and coming artists, such as Nothing but Thieves, Asylums and Youthclub. Recorded in their home studio and mixed and mastered by John Webber at Air Studios, ‘Waiting For The Red Light’ is set to release 7th April.
Hailing from all the way down under in Australia, Lisa Richards is casting her brand of endearing and enchanting jazz-pop across the rest of the world with her new album 'A Light From The Other Side'.
After a turbulent childhood and upbringing, Richards has found her calling in the world of music and it's almost a shame she didn't start sooner!
Instantly, the first you'll notice about Lisa is her one of a kind voice which is nothing less than inimitable. There is a gentleness, yet individuality of timbre in her vocals which are difficult to describe. Despite this, they fit in perfectly with her laid-back, easy listening, jazz influenced style of music. Lovers of Norah Jones will be sure to find what they love in Lisa's music too.
Richards is the kind of artist you'd have imagined to be around in jazz circles many years ago and this simply shows the way in which she has reinvented the genre for modern audiences.
Having already accrued 4 albums to his name, Adam Lanceley is not one to slack when it comes to writing music. It seems that the London based singer-songwriter is simply a machine, churning out track after track. But Adam's new EP 'Back To The Sunshine' displays a musician who has come a long way since his beginnings in the industry and now he is donating all proceeds of the record to charity.
When Adam was young, he was involved in a horrific car accident that left him fighting for his life. He sustained severe head injuries and his family were informed that he would probably not walk or talk again. In lieu of this, Adam has shown the utmost determination in recovering, proving those doctors wrong, and now he even runs 10k races and marathons for charity.
Consequently, Adam decided to donate all net proceeds from 'Back To The Sunshine' to the Brain and Spine Foundation, a charity he was worked with in the past and one that means a lot to him.
When writing his music, Adam is influenced by a mix of factors: everything from topical and relevant events to personal experiences from the present day, as well as his younger years. For example, destinations such as Yorkshire and Devon, amongst other places, have provided Adam with fountains of ideas that he has turned into intriguing and meaningful lyrics, attributing ordinary places with mystical grandeur and reflecting fond memories from his childhood.
The talent show platform has been a mainstay in the reality TV sector for a long time now and it seems to have been dominated by the same few shows like The X-Factor, The Voice, and Britain's Got Talent - two of those shows being spearheaded by the formidable music industry shark, Simon Cowell.
But now there is a new fish in the pond called Salute and its rivaling the big guns by providing an alternative platform for unsigned artists to showcase their music.
Salute is all about grass roots music; giving talented UK musicians a fair opportunity to show what they've got. Shows like the X-Factor have often been criticised for always focusing on the monetary side of the music industry, but this is exactly what Salute aims to combat.
Initially, Salute 'Music Makers' will upload their music via an app (avoiding the cringey audition phases) whereupon a listening phase will occur. Tracks will be vetted by industry curators and professionals such as Feargal Sharkey, former Undertone front-man who is heading the face of the project. Applicants will be narrowed down to a top 100, and eventually a final 6 will be decided by public vote.
It is these final 6 contestants who will feature on the live shows, exhibiting original and themed music each week. No longer will there simply be artists performing 'karaoke' of classic musicians- everything will be fresh and new, empowering the talented song-writers and musicians of our country, not just those who are good at singing and can be molded into the perfect pop-stars.
Salute have also teamed up with Unilad to form a fusion of social media, digital and TV to power the competition online. As well as this, Jamal Edwards MBE has also got on board with Salute and will be talking at their launch event at London venue, Omeara on 22nd March 2017.
Whilst some of the other talent shows can boast top prizes for their winners, such as record deals or opportunities to perform on special occasions at prestigious events, Salute beats them all, offering a £50,000 prize to the overall winner of the competition, that they can use to boost their music career.
Applications for Salute will open April 3rd for all contestants, whilst the listening phase will begin mid-May and finish in July. It will then be the time for the public vote, with the live shows beginning in September and the winner being announced in October.
So you thought classical music was a thing of the past? Where older men with wigs compose epic pieces with tons of straight-jacket musicians helping them out in the performance- how wrong you were!
Trying to reinvent the sound of classical music for modern audiences is the talented young Maltese composer, Edward Abela. His brand of soft piano-led compositions are nothing like what you would expect from 'classical' music, employing imaginative soundscapes and effects to ameliorate and drag the genre into something wholly more appealing and fresh.
With his new EP entitled 'Echoes', Abela has built upon his work from his previous album 'Chronicles', giving us much of the same style that he has built a name for himself with. Fans will be pleased to hear that he has not strayed too far from his signature style, yet he has developed his ability to create images through his music and this is key for Edward who always aims to tell a story through his work.
'Stella Maris' is an intriguing piece with an innate curiosity and child-like nature that you can instantly imagine as part of a film score. There is no doubt that Edward's experience as a composer for Warner/Chappell has helped him pioneer this filmic style, but equally, he can be placed up there with the best, including his influences Ludovico Einaudi and Nils Frahm.
Meanwhile, the lead track 'Echoes' is an interweaving masterpiece of complex instrumentation that displays Edward's true compositional abilities. Whilst other sounds and effects are introduced, providing originality, the piano is always at the heart of Abela's work, creating beautiful, yet often simple melodies that transport listeners away in just a few notes.
There is an ambience and atmosphere to Abela's work which is rare to find and the cinematic nature of his music would be equally at home providing a soundtrack to sit back and relax to as much as it would be on screen.
Overall, 'Echoes' picks up where Edward left off with his last album, but this trademark style is quickly becoming synonymous with the composer and his undeniable talents. Well worth a listen if you're ready for some deep thinking!
M3staken (M3)identifies himself as primarily a hip-hop artist, but it can certainly be said that he is like no other hip-hop artist you have heard before.
The young, yet talented producer and musician has grown up in South Carolina, developing a unique style of music that pushes boundaries as much as it pleases it the critical listener's ear.
His new soundtrack album 'Apex' is somewhat of an experimental, concept piece that builds and develops M3staken's hip-hop roots with genre-defying hints of both electronic and classical music. Of course, these aren't style you would normally blend together, or even associate for that matter, but M3's willingness to see what happens when you do is both commendable and impressive. It's not often you come across a young artist who is quite as ambitious with their musical experiments as M3staken.
'In Space' exhibits jarring hip-hop beats with a discerning drone and the first example of his piano skills on the album thrown in. It's a dark instrumental piece, but one that is thought provoking and image conjuring too. 'Apex' is by no means a traditional soundtrack album, but somehow you feel like there would definitely be a place for it in the film market.
'YaphetKotto' displays more of M3's dissonant and fractured style but it is not just noise; there is structure in the unstructure of it all, only proving M3's talents that clearly belie his years.
Moving in a lightly different direction, 'Milo' provides us with a much more melodically pleasing tune, layered on top of complex beats and subtle bass. It often be easy to turn everything up when composing music, but M3 is subtle and considered in his production, bringing us a sound like no other.
Overall, if you're looking for something a little different, something a little left field, but you're still a hip-hop lover at heart- give M3staken's Apex a try. It will certainly take you to new ground and expand your musical horizons.
In the run up to to releasing his debut solo album, Welsh singer-songwriter James Kennedy has dropped his emotional new video for the single 'Unconditional'.
Kennedy was formerly part of the hardcore rock group Kyshera, but non-stop touring led to him suffering from bouts of depression, forcing him to take a break from music.
However, incidentally it was whilst James was gathering his thoughts that he found the inspiration to get back to songwriting and pen his new album, 'Home'. The process became a form of therapy for Kennedy and it was within just a few months that he had written, recorded and mastered the album.
The record takes a distinct diversion from James' roots in hardcore rock, moving away from the aggression of the genre towards a a softer form of rock, with more pop-hooks. As a result, Kennedy's quality as a musician is demonstrated through his versatility in style and he has looked to himself and his deeper feelings to inspire much of the material on 'Home'.
The new video for 'Unconditional' is a real tearjerker, showing the love between human beings, whether that be between man and woman, mother and son, or even human and dog.
If you want to get to know James a little better then why not watch his 'twinterview' where he answers questions posed to him by his twitter followers:
Having released his americana-folk album, 'Call Me The Moon' recently, Belgian singer-songwriter Mark L. Oakes has been busy making the video for his single, 'Shredded Jeans' which you can see here:
With simple, no-frills black and white visuals accompanying the beautifully crafted track, Mark succeeds in drawing the emotion out through the picturesque landscapes seen in the video.
Not only this, but since Mark has labelled the album as perfect for a 'karmic road trip', the video seems only fitting to feature Mark wandering, in search of something, unknown, in the wilderness.
Bringing back a seemingly forgotten style of easy-listening, folk music, Mark's style is one for the nostalgic listeners, reliving the days of Neil Young and James Taylor. Despite this, Mark is also influenced by more contemporary musicians such as Tom Petty and Ryan Adams.
Brighton based band Warsaw Radio are bringing a whole new level of songwriting to the game with their new single, 'After Eve'.
Formed in 2013, Warsaw radio create a beautifully crafted blend of rock-pop, with orchestral tinges and a folk infused edge. It's a potent combination that makes for some great listening.
'After Eve', which has an intriguing name as it is, focuses on the imaginative idea of what would have happened if Adam and Eve had been separated after their banishing from the Garden of Eden. Sung from the perspective of Adam, listeners are transported into a whole other realm through front-man Brian McNamara's inventive approach to songwriting. Ask yourself, how often do hear a song that takes on a completely different perspective other than the singer? Whilst someone who doesn't know the subtext of 'After Eve' might simply think it relates to a personal experience of a member of the band, it can often be a mistake to associate poetic voice with author. This is where Warsaw Radio differentiate themselves from similar music on the market.
McNamara's rich and warm vocals open the track alongside a subtle string section whose chord progression gradually builds in both texture and grandeur as the song continues. Suddenly Brian's voice raises up a notch as the bass drum kicks in, eventually making way for the violin led hook. As the song builds towards its crescendo, there's a sense of severity and seriousness over the situation being addressed in the song and this creates strong imagery from the music.
A fantastic instrumental break provides contrast to the rest of the song, but also allows it to build up once again, in order to drop back into the chorus. Not only is there a deep meaning and story behind 'After Eve', but the consideration of structure and composition is second to none. There are pop hooks in there making for a catchy listen, yet the orchestral sound championed by the band places them in their own whole category- it's hard to pin down, and this is a good thing.
If like me, you were drawn to the band's name, you'll be surprised to hear how it came about. McNamara was reading about the siege of Warsaw in 1939 during WW2 and how the orchestra of the Warsaw Radio continued to play and air their music throughout the chaos. Eventually, their protest was brought to an end when an artillery shell destroyed the transmission mast, but Brian was so inspired by the story, he named his band after them.
He said: "The story really inspired me. Working as an original artist in what can be a tough industry can be hard and having an inspiration like these guys in 1939 helps to keep you going”.
Overall, 'After Eve' is a break-out stamp on the music industry from a band who have found a truly unique sound. With an original sound and inspirational songwriting that is second to none, Warsaw Radio are one you should definitely keep an eye on.
You might not have heard of Jodie H. Dunn yet, but she is certainly making her mark on the music industry with her outstanding vocal capabilities and affinity for songwriting.
The young singer-songwriter has always been fascinated with music, singing in the garden and the playground as a child, even pretending that her neighbours were her audience. Since then, Jodie has eagerly developed her talents, teaching herself a little piano in order to help her songwriting process.
Her latest single, 'I Belong In Hell' is a dark, brooding ballad powered by Jodie's distinctive vocals and a subtle, yet potent piano hook. As Jodie grew older and suffered with bullying at school, penning songs became a sort of diary for her and 'I Belong In Hell' touches on the idea of someone controlling when you are feeling really low.
The haunting little piano hook opens the track with Jodie's vocals gently soaring above, all before the pounding drum beat enters, adding substance and texture. Subtlety is the name of the game in 'I Belong in Hell' and this is partly down to the skills of producer Andy Whitmore of Greystoke studios. For example, the bass line sits quietly in the background but provides a depth of sound that only goes to reinforce the seriousness of Jodie's lyrics.
Speaking of which, it takes an experienced songwriter to come up with such profound and meaningful lyrics, yet Jodie is only just starting out in the professional music world. As a result, you know that she is going places with her music. Although the bullying that Jodie experienced was deeply upsetting, even forcing her to move schools during her GCSE exams, it is these experiences that have provided her with the powerful material to write songs like 'I Belong In Hell'.
Preferring to write emotive ballad style songs, Jodie can be compared to artists as big as Adele and Sam Smith, but she is inspired by a wide range of music, but most notably by American singer-songwriter, Jhene Aiko. Speaking of Adele who sang the bond theme for 'Skyfall', Jodie's 'I Belong In Hell' is exactly the kind of track you can imagine working well with the opening of a bond film too, with its stunning vocals and the powerful drop during the chorus.
Overall, 'I Belong In Hell' is a track worthy of the biggest names in pop music yet is has surprisingly been written by a young (but highly talented) songwriter from Swindon. Watch this space and Jodie H. Dunn may well be the next big thing - or maybe just wait for the next bond film!
You can watch Jodie talking about how she writes her songs here:
With the sort of experience that Matt Boroff has in his hands, you might feel like you should have heard of him, especially since he has shared stages with giants of rock, Queens of the Stone Age, Calexico and even Nirvana!
The Nirvana gig was back in the day when Matt was playing with his high school band, but since then he has performed under a number of guises, forming Matt Boroff and the Mirrors, with whom he enjoyed success, and now he has embarked on a solo project with his new album 'Grand Delusion'.
'What A Shame' is the first single from the new record and it displays Boroff's alt-rock sound at its most powerful, driven by walls of distortion and Matt's deadly baritone.
Boroff shows his vocal range too, opening the song softly before unleashing the animal inside him during the chorus as he screams the song's title. A noodling, western style guitar breaks up waves of distortion, providing a considered and unusual contrast that works surprisingly well.
Having dropped big names already in this review, I won't do it any more, but clever listeners will recognise similarities between QOTSA, Nirvana and Matt. There's a distinct early 90s sound, taking on the heavy elements of grunge, but there's glimpses of gentleness too, particularly through the lyricism. For example, 'Your air-conditioned wax museum is melting in a heat wave' conjures a graphic, quite horrifying image (especially if you've seen House of Wax), but these cryptic lyrics are not just for show, there is meaning behind them.
The album as a whole addresses complex themes such as greed, nationalism and war mongering, so one can admire the way that Matt discusses these in such a profound manner. His lyrics invite debate and provoke thought, rather than just being forgotten in the background.
If the video for 'What A Shame' is anything to go by, Matt is quite the performer, too. He oozes charisma, handling his guitar as if he were taming a wild stallion and this confidence is mirrored through his confident songwriting and lyrics.
Overall, 'What A Shame' resurrects sounds from a by-gone era, adapting the style to fit modern concerns and contemporary issues. Consequently, Boroff's style isn't just alt-rock for the sake of nostalgia, he is pioneering a progressive sound that fuses the true heart of rock music with clever lyricism, making for a potent and unmissable combination, worthy of any rock fan's ears.
Tsunami Section is the musical vehicle of Anna Chiara and Felicia Singson, who create an old-skool, retro disco style of pop that takes you back to the good ol' days.
This certainly isn't to say that their music is dated by any means, the duo take influence from an era of pop music that thrived on catchy hooks and danceable beats and these are exactly the things Tsunami Section employ in their contemporary-disco style.
'Keep My Spinning Wheel' is he kind of track that will get stuck in your head because of the superbly-crafted pop chorus but it also has a deeper meaning. The track focuses on the idea of karma and whilst it is often discussed in negative terms, Tsunami Section look to the bright side of it, pushing forward the idea that no matter what live throws at you, there will always be another chance.
Clearly, the girls of Tsunami Section, along with writer, Oliver Fell-Holden, know what makes a good pop track and they've tapped into the formula by using the song title 'Keep My Spinning Wheel' as the infectious hook that underpins the track. The classic use of instrumentation is subtly altered through the use of a brass section that adds another level to the song. From this, you can tell that Tsunami Section aren't trying to do anything 'out there' with their music, but this is possibly the best thing about them; they aim to make great pop music that gets people up and dancing and this is certainly the case with 'Keep My Spinning Wheel.'
Listen to 'Keep My Spinning Wheel' here:
The duo are no stranger to live performance either, having taken their music to over 100 venues across India, in places such as Delhi, Mizoram and Gurgaon.
As well as album, single and gig reviews we now have sections devoted to looking at the latest tech including mobile phones, audio and TV for the home and even cars. In short anything you can listen to music on or in. Or just stuff our crack team of writers things is interesting.
