Wonder Villains. Re-release Zola. Video with a very special guest.

23 Jun

Wonder Villains have proved again that Gianfranco Zola is a legend as he took the time to appear in the video for their song ‘Zola’, paying homage to the man himself. A Perfectly timed release to pin itself to the madness of the World Cup as it proves music is a funny old game of two halves. When a comeback is on the cards it just takes a moment of magic and the introduction of somebody like Zola to your music video can just offer something new and create some chances.
At the end of the day it was a good song they gave it 110% and probably deserved a little more out of it.

Daniel James. New Single. The Bridge.

13 Mar

Daniel_James The Bridge

I’m loving this new single from Daniel James. The bridge is an upbeat instantly catchy alt pop track with electronic beats and a seriously catchy hook.

The Bridge which will be released April 21st through Grey Sky Records. The track takes its source from a 1984 documentary about street kids in Seattle dealing with sex and drugs; ‘The Bridge’ is the place they escape to for moments of connecting with their true innocence.
Daniel who hails from Northern Ireland but now resides in London, recently toured with Sam Smith and will be performing dates with Saint Raymond this month along with festival appearances in May.

And you can even get a free download track called ‘Gallaher Blues‘.

There is also another track called ‘A lonely man’ only a demo, not that you can tell its got hit written all over it especially with the chorus.

Acrobat. New Single & Video. Follow You Down.

11 Mar

Acrobat have released a new single and video to go with it. The song is entitled ‘Follow You Down’ its an upbeat alternative rock offering with hints of early U2 in the song writing and guitar mixed with some more American alt rock influences.
The video is a beautifully shot short film featuring the band and some pretty nasty character’s who they get into trouble with. Set in Dublin City it echoes the recent interest in crime drama’s like Love/Hate.
Acrobat have been on the up and up recently with support slots with the likes of Bastille and Mark Owen as well as getting to open for Mumford And Sons at Arthur’s Day. This April see’s the release of their debut EP ‘Follow You Down’ on April 4th through Stoneship Records. The EP will be available from iTunes, Spotify and Deezer.
