Roman Zayats Release Of ‘Cold’ Is Combating The January Blues

 

 

Drawing from a huge range of influences makes Romans music varied and original, and with the hope of new artists featuring on the next few releases, 2018 is looking to be working in Romans favor.

The single itself can be seen as a homage to all great techno, dance and house acts, including Depeche Mode, Deadmau5 and Skrillex, however, as Romans upbringing was in St Petersburg, Russia, home of some of classical music’s greatest composers, it was destined for him to include aspects from musical history into his work.

 

The track is a great piece, and with many surprises yet to be unveiled, you can assure yourself it would be a good idea to stay tuned for whats coming.

Dial 999, It’s Five-O-Five!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Escaping the clutches of their idyllic Eastern Italy seaside heaven to embrace the murky world of international rock, Five-O-Five have the dangerous swagger of The Libertines and the effortless cool of The Arctic Monkeys, perfectly showcased in Where They Bring Sophie, from their album, unhelpfully titled @Y&!

With a healthy dosh of garage indie-rock with dashes of electro and pop, their new track kicks off with an instantly potent guitar riff, which is quickly joined by a pulsating drum beat and fuzzy vocals which complete the fast-paced, in your face sound.

Watch the video for ‘Where They Bring Sophie’ here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfD8KpzoVag

Consisting of Piero (guitar/lead vocals), Andrea (drums), Riccardo (bass) and Alessandro (keyboards), the group of friends may be young, but their talent without a doubt belies their years, proving how Italy and the rest of Europe still has a role to play in the world of rock-centric music.

Introducing: Luna Blue

Introducing Brighton’s next big thing in the world of indie-pop – Luna Blue.

yHaving formed whilst studying at the University of Chichester, the band are embarking on the release of their debut EP Nightjar, along with the new single ‘Borrowed Words’ which is out 28th July.

Borrowing sounds from their inspirations such as The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Don Broco, Luna Blue create a funk-infused indie pop sound that bounces carelessly, flows seamlessly and always gets your foot tapping.

Consisting of Tom High (vocals/rhythm guitar), Ryan Wellman (lead guitar/backing vocals), Nick Davie (Bass/backing vocals) and Seb Bowen (drummer/backing vocals), Luna Blue’s ‘Borrowed Words’ exhibits the band at their funk-rock best, with driving, upbeat instrumentation and the wild, soaring vocals of front-man Tom, which focus on the intriguing topic of saying or doing something in order to please someone and fill another fantasy – in another sense – borrowing words.

Unfortunately, bassist Nick’s best friend was hit and killed by a drunk driver in 2015, but in her dedication, Luna Blue put on a spectacular live show, backed by a live orchestra where the band performed a number of their own tracks as well as memorable covers.

Coming from varying musical backgrounds, the boys join together a vast array of influences from all over the musical world. Whilst Ryan is strongly inspired by blues and progressive rock, particularly Pink Floyd, Seb and Nick enjoy delving into the seemingly contrasting realms of metal and jazz, and Tom considers legendary singer-songwriter, Jeff Buckley, his idol.

M3staken is back again with ‘Rain’

cover-art.jpg

Returning with his third album in the space of less than a year, experimental hip-hop artist M3staken (M3) has dropped the final piece of his ‘trilogy’, Rain.

Listen to Rain here: https://m3ssi.bandcamp.com/releases

Having dabbled with a combination of classical piano and electronic instrumentation on his first record, Apex, M3 has honed his brand of jarring, dark and complex music that borrows many of its beats from the world of hip-hop.

Despite this, it’s a difficult task describing exactly what M3 is doing and this is what places him in a different league to other artists. He’s a natural born boundary pusher and we clearly haven’t seen the end of his exhaustive ideas quite yet. Who knows what he might be combining with his hip-hop roots next?

M3 commented that Rain is ‘loosely connected to my two previous works and it is primarily a collection of my personal favourite songs’.

Marilyn Carino’s New Album: ‘Leaves, Sadness, Science’

Leaves, Sadness, Science is the second album from electronic artist Marilyn Carino, after releasing her debut Little Genius in 2011. The new album picks up where Marilyn left off, pioneering a bold electronic sound with influences from hip-hop and soul too.

It might seem like an odd combination of genres, but nobody gets anywhere without experimentation and Marilyn combines these sounds in a way that pushes the boundaries of what we can expect from a piece of music.

Carino’s singing has been called, “powerful to the point of bringing you to tears” (Straight No Chaser) and “smoldering” (The New Yorker); her music, “enchanting – a testament to the healing powers of rhythm” (Nylon). The Brooklyn native wrote, recorded, mixed and performed all of ‘Leaves, Sadness, Science’ – a collection of head-spacey tracks formed from layered, Moog-y synths and complex beats. Her long time practice of Nichiren Buddhism is the force that forms her songs into gripping, graphic internal monologues that explore themes of sex and radical self-expression.

Carino recorded her first album at Neil Young’s studio with Crazy Horse bassist Billy Talbot producing. She then flew to London on a one-way ticket and stayed for a year working as an engineer in reggae recording studios. Upon returning to the U.S. she co-founded the vintage electronic group Mudville, producing three critically acclaimed albums and wrote lyrics for the great producers Sly and Robbie (Grace Jones, Simply Red). Mudville’s song ‘Wicked’ won the 2008 Independent Music Award for Best Song. She recorded and produced her first solo album ‘Little Genius’ in 2011, and recently contributed vocals and lyrics to the Words Hurt indie hip-hop collective’s ‘Fuck That Pretty Boy Shit’, featuring Samuel T. Herring, vocalist of Future Islands.
