Ok, so this blog is primarily for spreading the word of aspiring, unsigned bands that are making waves in the music scene. However, just once in a while, it’s nice to delve into the past and find a spiffy little gem.
Such a gem was presented to me by a friend who described what I was about to hear as ‘the most interesting version of Strangers in the Night you have never heard.’
And fine people, this musical delight must be shared. Enjoy.
So Bitter Ruin are back with their new single from the album ‘Waves’ and it is killer!
Georgia’s Intense, emotive vocals and lyrics interweave effortlessly with Ben’s powerful guitar. Melodic genius at its finest.
These two know who they are as artists and they want the world to hear it – they are currently gigging in London and Brighton and tickets are on sale now – check out their site for more info! http://www.bitterruin.com/
Tin Roots are refreshingly different with a mellow, reggae-funk sound that crosses genres and makes them stand out from the crowd.
‘Set Sail’ is a brilliant track, filled with with funky guitar riffage, a lively, warm sound and soulful vocals. It just makes you want to bounce. And also makes you feel like summer has exploded in your face. Go download it!
The Jellycats are a Ska-Punk band with a fierce energy and upbeat groove and ‘T-W-A-T’ (taken from their debut album which can be downloaded free here http://thejellycats.bandcamp.com/) shows that these guys mean business.
Instantly hooky, this track is filled with attitude, awesome vocals and a kick ass guitar solo. It really is the stuff that ska-filled dreams are made of.
