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.

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.

Modiwo’s Uplifting Dream Pop from Darkest Transylvania

Confounding expectations, Modiwo have emerged from the shadows of the Carpathian Mountains to become one of the country’s breakout musical success stories, whilst also giving their time to support charity projects around the world. Initially forming in order to provide entertainment for local orphanages and retirement projects, demand for the band’s music grew to such a scale that they agreed to become a band in their own right.

Joining together musical forces from Romania, Ukraine, Moldova and Hungary, their unique anthemic dream-pop sound is embellished in their live shows with alpine horns, didgeridoos, and shakuhachi solos. Their latest track, “Never Give Up”, is an achingly blissful pillow of sunshine which brings to mind all the dreamiest elements of The Beloved.

Watch the video to Never Give Up here:

As well as conquering their homeland with their music, they are currently involved with a charity called Fruit Fusion, where audiences attending their gigs will pay with fruit rather than money, the proceeds then being donated to local orphanages, in conjunction with The Bureau of Children’s’ Rights Protection. An average show can deliver up to 700kg of fruit to those most deserving. Modiwo carry this healthy living ethos through to their own lifestyles and into their music, promoting yoga and meditation as well as using their music as a form of relaxation therapy.

Pallab Sarker returns with ‘Not Gonna Fall In Love With You’

Having found success with debut record, ‘Morning in Brixton’, which found underground success across US college radio networks. It earned him a record deal in the States and now the British-Bengali singer-songwriter Pallab Sarker is back with his endearing follow up single ‘Not Gonna Fall In Love With You’.

However, for a long time Pallab led a rather contrasting ‘double life’; he was a press adviser to Minister’s by day, including Lord Digby during the last Labour administration and a musician by night.

On one occasion he merged his two worlds together as he performed a gig in the atrium of the home office in the name of Children in Need, raising thousands of pounds in the process.

After Pallab’s parents fled from the Bangladesh war of independence in the 70s and raised him in Peterborough, Pallab relocated to London during his early twenties at the peak of the brit-pop explosion.

The lively scene that took the music world by storm inspired the budding songwriter who quickly formed a band, ICON, who gigged incessantly across the capital and its lively circuit. Although Pallab is now based in Walthamstow, he has spent a lot of time immersed in the vibrant arts scene of South London, which inspired the single ‘Morning In Brixton’, also taken from his upcoming album, Grey Day.

Since his band days, Pallab has developed his sound as a solo artist and he can now be considered a genuine songbird, whose arresting voice and touching melodies ooze with emotional value, speaking straight to the hearts of his listeners. Within Sarker’s work is a humanizing touch, most clearly exhibited through his kind, clever lyricism and its sonic journey instigating abilities, which can be found on ‘Not Gonna Fall In Love With You’.

Not only this, but Pallab feels strongly about the lack of British Asians being showcased in the indie genre. He points out that British Asians have played a huge role in the development of garage and R&B, but there is little mainstream representation when it comes to the indie singer-songwriter scene: Sarker could well be the poster boy who kicks off a new era for British Asians in this genre.

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.

You’ll have to wait a little while for ‘Borrowed Words’ to come out, but in the meantime, check out Luna Blue on social media:

Screams On Sunday explore internet obsessed society in ‘The Night’

Alternative female fronted rock group Screams On Sunday (SOS) explore today’s technology obsessive society in latest single ‘The Night’ set to be released 27th January. Blending melodic guitar solos with rock rhythms, their latest single has a raw and honest sound.

The Spanish band came together via the internet and ironically discuss the idea of today’s generation being obsessed with creating an online persona, lacking real life relations in ‘The Night’. The meaningful lyrics sung in a rough but sweet manner gives SOS a unique edge.

The rockers debut EP ‘Call Reality A Lie’ received major success, leading to them gaining a large following and becoming known for their live performances that were considered “pure dynamite”.

‘The Night’ was recorded at Sound-Hub in Belper and mastered at Metropolis Studios in London. SOS find themselves improvising as it creates a more honest raw sound, meaning the production process perfects that improvised sound but still portraying what is inside.
