just a little update on our releases as of late.. we’ve been so focused on the live stuff and it’s all going so well!
however, we just wanted to say that our EP with Anyone’s Ghost is at over 12,500 streams!! how on earth!? we’re so grateful for everyone who has taken the time to listen to it.. we’re so proud of what michael webster and Wanda produced and it’s lush to see you all loving it!
also, with the releases this year from michael and Olivia Browse we’re actually at a grand total of 22k streams. how fantastic is that!! a big shout out to all our fantastic artists
our feature for (yesterday’s!) Just The Crust is the amazing brand new tune from Faux Pas!
absolutely top tune – lovely distortion, noise, chaos with so much going on.. modern grungy-punk anthems with melodic riffs, feedback, Ru’s amazing and powerful, direct vocals.. a complete tune! love the atmosphere of the outro with the chorusy guitar and that little distorted tone.. just lush!
Faux Pas are definitely ones to watch. having already played at festivals and got national radio play, we’re sure they’re going to make their imprint in UK music with the release of their upcoming EP ‘I Feel Pretty, So Should You’!
we’ve had a few technical issues today for our usual feature but not to worry, we’ll have it sorted for you this week!
in the meantime, we just wanted to highlight one of the top releases lately, Granfalloon‘s new album ‘Positive Songs’! we’ve featured a fair few of his tunes on the label but he’s put them all out on this album and it’s top!
think Beck, mixed with a bit of indie singer-songwriter magic with a dash of psychedelia – absolutely top stuff from songwriter Lomax. it’s well worth a listen! his lovely songwriting style with backing band behind him really takes his music to a new level, and it’s a real insight into the life of the creative. after the release of his second album ‘RGB’, Lomax was ready to hit up Europe on tours, had plenty of merch done, and suddenly a global pandemic hit.. this was the result of a weekly positive song-focused songwriting challenge he undertook! absolutely inspirational stuff!
it’s not even BEEN A WEEK and Olivia Browse‘s new tune ‘Calendar Girl’ featuring Szou has already hit 2.1k plays over on Spotify
we can’t believe how well this has done!! it’s such an absolute banger and we’re so made up for Liv and Szou and Shtum on production for making such a class tune that people are proper loving! so great to have such amazing artists and music on the label!
if you’ve not heard it yet – you’re missing out on a proper pop banger. head on over to Spotify at https://open.spotify.com/track/7822mkMFdxxHjqtl5JqSC1 to check it out in full – or available on all streaming services! ps.. secret preview pic from the music video (coming soon!)
we’re absolutely MADE UP to be able to feature this on today’s Just The Crust! one of our favourite musicians and all around amazing guy Harrison Rimmer is here with a brand new single “The Travelist”!
Harrison has been one of our biggest supporters for a long time and played many of our virtual open mics every single week, and we’re absolutely buzzing to actually be able to show you an exclusive sneak peek at this lovely music video he’s made up!
“The Travelist” sounds absolutely huge, with the punk rock overtones we’re so used to him doing and fantastic songwriting – Harrison’s vocals in this are out of this world as well. it’s a real class tune about his need to get out there and do it something we can completely relate to!
the single will be out this coming Friday 17th Sept – head on over to his YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/user/HarryRimbo124 and drop him a subscribe to be the first to catch the video! you can also follow him on your favourite streaming site to get notified as soon as it’s out absolutely fantastic!
