Amy – Hotel Atlantica (that magaluf song)

Amy – Hotel Atlantica (that magaluf song)

The hot weather is finally here and to celebrate, we bring you this feel-good, immense summer tune from Amy!

Hotel Atlantica has a fresh, hooky sound that gets you instantly moving to the music. There is an awesome use of dynamics in this track that keeps the listener involved (and imagining that they are indeed living it large in Magaluf!). The mix of electric and acoustic guitar really adds to the tone of the song which is further embellished by the catchy rhythm section – check out the bass riffage!

Amy know how to concoct a perfect fusion of power pop/rock and then top it off with a hefty dose of sunshine – you definitely need this on your summer playlists. And you can discover more music here: http://www.reverbnation.com/amymusic

The new EP is on the horizon so keep your eyes (and ears) peeled!

 

Bitter Ruin – Trust

Intense, emotive and with vocals that shatter your mind into a million pieces, Bitter Ruin are shaking up the music industry with their indie-noir sound.

An acoustic duo hailing from Brighton (and managed by the awesome Matt Lucas), these guys have supported artists such as Ben Folds and Amanda Palmer – and really held their own.

With strong, angry guitar and dramatic vocal inflections, their stage presence is as formidable as their songs and their creativity and passion spills out in waves.

Don’t try to resist them…they won’t let you.

The Coffee Shop Kids – I Wanna Be Like You (Cover)

So we’ve posted a song by The Coffee Shop Kids before (see here: https://roarfm.wordpress.com/2013/04/24/the-coffee-shop-kids-the-ooh-song/ ) but this is genuinely one of the most unique, awesome covers we have seen in a long time and it should definitely be shared!

Enjoy!

Danny Dangerously – Heaven & Glory

‘Heaven & Glory’ is taken from the Age of Tapes EP (which can be found here dannydangerously.bandcamp.com) and it is an awesome track.

The lyrics are beautifully written and complement the powerful melody and emotive guitars perfectly. When you hear ‘Heaven & Glory’ live, it hits you in the face and wedges itself firmly in your mind. This is definitely an unforgettable tune.

Check out Danny’s new album, ‘The Faith & The Fury’ on bandcamp. It is immense.

Edd Mann – The Spanish Dancer

Edd Mann is a Sussex based singer-songwriter who creates beautiful songs simply using vocals and acoustic guitar. And ‘The Spanish Dancer’ is no exception.

Exquisitely crafted, the track is brimming with emotion and charm (not to mention the awesomeness of the Spanish flavours and graceful melodies of the guitar)

‘The Spanish Dancer’ is a stunning piece of music.

Virgin Soldiers – Sitar Song

A new release from the Virgin Soldiers, ‘Sitar Song’ is truly beautiful.

The lyrics and melody are haunting and the music just exudes sadness and longing. This is a great track and most of us can undoubtedly relate to its theme.

In their own words, the band call their genre of music ‘Strock’ (acoustic rock with a fully fledged strings section) – well whatever it is, it’s definitely something special.

You should also check out their cover of Linkin Park’s ‘Numb’ on their website: http://www.virginsoldiers.com/ It is awesome.
