Band Milo Gore has shared their music video for their single ‘Green Eyes’. The single is lifted off of their upcoming album title, How Do You Cope While Grieving For The Living? (August 2020). Milo Gore cites musical influence from acts like Girl in Red, Penelope Isles, The 1975, Bears Den and Idles.The band consists of university pals, including lead singer and founder Milo. ‘Green Eyes’ chronicles Milo’s previous heartbreak.
Milo Gore explains in further detail, “The ‘Green Eyes’ music video is about the rise and fall of Milo’s past relationship. The video depicts the story of how he and his girlfriend first met, and consequently, how they drifted apart. The two should have never ended up together – they both had issues with their mental health, issues that were clearly going unchecked. Perhaps that’s what initially brought them together? However, it was sadly the thing that also tore them apart.
The ‘Green Eyes’ video was performed by Grace Collett and Robi Schein Bogdanov. Robi is portraying lead singer Milo and his first meeting with his girlfriend until the bittersweet ending, where he ends up at the exact meeting spot alone but content, as the video ends with Robi smiling.
William Prince has announced his second album Reliever, due for release on February 7th via Glassnote Records.
Dave Cobb and Scott Nolan produced Reliever, a record that showcases Prince as a powerful vocalist and inspirational writer with musical influences ranging from his musician and preacher father to Kris Kristofferson and Charley Pride. It’s the second album for the Juno Award-winning songwriter and performer.
Prince had planned a career as a doctor before turning to music, and the album title expresses his dedication to providing relief and comfort to his listeners. “These songs were born in a time of great challenge,” he says. “Where these songs sound hopeless, let them be a testament to resilience. When they move slow, it is for better observation of the lesson at hand. Where they sound joyous and confident, picture the light breaking like the dawn, just after it was darkest.”
Reliever’s lead track is the inspirational ‘The Spark’, which promises “Don’t be afraid of the fire…I’d never let you burn.”
“The Spark details hope in finding someone who lights you up amidst the darkness you may feel. True love can burn so bright when it finds its spark,” says Prince. “A spark can save you amidst the cold and bring salvation from its warmth.”
Prince goes on to talk about the album’s message:
“Reliever is a series of pieces for healing. Alleviation. As the definition states, something that allows for relief from pain, discomfort or distress…Reliever takes aim at the moments where we as human beings feel we aren’t enough.” Prince says, “Pain doesn’t have to define us…Thankfully there are many things that can combat it” – and with Reliever, it indeed becomes one of those things.
Reliever fulfills the promises of William Prince’s earlier recordings and performances, which have earned him Juno Awards (for Contemporary Roots Album and Indigenous Music Album) and raves for his appearances at Stagecoach, and AmericanaFest. Prince’s trajectory from Peguis First Nation in Manitoba, Canada, to opening for Neil Young, has seen the relative newcomer find esteem and career-changing opportunity wherever he performs.
Prince was recently confirmed as opener for songwriter Yola’s upcoming UK tour (dates below).
K.Flay will be coming to the UK this month as part of her worldwide tour celebrating the critically acclaimed new album Solutions and will visit Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester, and London. The forward-thinking, inspirational star has also launched the first-ever “microcast” (a podcast broadcast shorter than 10 minutes) designed specifically for smart speakers (Amazon Alexa and Google Home). A first of its kind for the music industry, listeners can access the show by asking Amazon’s Alexa to “Open K.Flay Show” or by asking Google Home to “Talk to K.Flay Show”.
Produced by PopCult Worldwide, a cutting edge producer of Audio Entertainment Marketing, it is also the first personality-driven programming distributed by SpokenLayer, the leading provider of voice content for virtual assistants and connected devices. The microcast is hosted and curated by K.Flay and is recorded 100% live from whether she is in the world, using a mobile recording studio including high-quality microphones for her iPhone, apps for recording phone calls, and more. It strives to answer the geographical and philosophical question, “what am I doing here?” and features conversations, jokes, musical interludes, as well as special guests including Sam Harris (X-Ambassadors), Bishop Briggs, and Zac Carper (FIDLAR), among other friends and family.
Fresh from Australian support slots with Joan As Police Woman, Bonniesongs, aka Bonnie Stewart, is pleased to reveal a ghoulish new video for her latest single ‘Frank’—an ode to the reanimated monster from Mary Shelley’s classic 1818 novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.
‘Frank’ is the latest track to be taken from the Australia-based Irish art-folk virtuoso’s forthcoming debut album Energetic Mind, set for release on Small Pond Records in the UK on 6th September 2019. Aussie experimental music label Art As Catharsis will be handling the release Down Under.
In support of the new record, Bonniesongs has also just announced a rare run of September 2019 UK tour dates supporting labelmate Natalie Evans (see below for full listings).
“I’m just trying to portray honesty, and imagination,” says Stewart of the often metaphysical inspirations behind her songwriting. “I’m someone who is led by heart not head. I’m a very emotive doer and thinker and I think this complexity of processing emotions comes out through my music. Where I might be singing about things like monsters or zombies, there’s a dark and deeper feeling that is more complex—whether that’s a sense of place, missing home, being misunderstood and underestimated, or nostalgia and old memories.”
Commenting on the hair-raising new video—which sees Stewart quite literally lose her head in a series of gruesome laboratory experiments before shuffling off around town as a zombie—she says: “It’s been so great to make music videos for a couple of the tracks. I’m a pretty visual person, so even when I’m writing lyrics, I’m usually picturing a scene or image. I particularly enjoyed making the video for ‘Frank’. We got to fulfill our lifelong destinies to dress up as zombie monsters and it was the best thing ever!”
The album’s lead single ‘Ice Cream’ (also out now) picked up international radio plays from Amazing Radio, Triple J, FBi Radio, and RTRFM, with press coverage from London In Stereo, Paste Magazine, The 405, The Line of Best Fit, CLASH, Crack in The Road, For The Rabbits, Nialler 9, Joe.ie, The Thin Air, Tone Deaf, Everything Is Noise, A Closer Listen, Overdrive Magazine, and a whole host more.
Energetic Mind is released 6th September 2019 via Small Pond Records (UK) and Art As Catharsis (AUS)
