Join Firewoodisland for weekly online concerts from their living room

Indiepop duo Firewoodisland have released their self-titled EP, just in time to comfort their concerned fans. Despite the unusual circumstances in the world at the time of the release, the pair have chosen to make the best of things by hosting weekly online concerts from their living room.

“We have entered weird times, with all this self-isolating and fear spreading about Coronavirus. Between news articles and opinions crowding our social media news feeds, it’s hard to escape the panic and confusion. However, social media is an amazing tool and we want to grasp the incredible power of it and use it to spread hope and joy.”

Each show will feature “friends of Firewoodisland” and will be announced with prelinks on Facebook and Youtube.

December 11, 2019 Bristol music producer obylx makes the world a little brighter with his latest song

Bristol music producer obylx makes the world a little brighter with his latest song

Sometimes you hit perfection on the second try. For obylx with his upcoming release of the album, Twice via Guise Records, this is the case. Twice is set for release on Friday 13 December, just in time to make your holiday playlist. Ahead of the album, ‘With You’ has been premiered via BBC Radio 6’s Lauren Laverne’s show.

The Bristol-based producer appears to dabble in a variety of different genres with his previously released ‘Flicker’ entering into the neoclassical future bass territory. This unique style caught the attention of Bass Music who opted for an exclusive interview. In it, obylx reveals how his musical journey began with the Beatles, Stevie Wonder & Bowie before moving on to the production styles of Chemical Brothers, Prodigy and Gorillaz. You can read the full interview here.

“I’ve learnt is how to express myself through writing. When I used to feel sad or worried about something, I would let it consume me. Like everyone else, I still get all of that of course but I feel I can write about it. It’s like I can turn it into a physical thing, which I can go back to and understand how I was feeling at that point. It doesn’t solve any of the problems but it does help me deal with it… it’s like a form of therapy. It’s taught me to embrace any emotions and celebrate it as part of being human.”

Singer/songwriter Cameron Bloomfield releases a new song ‘Wanted’

London-based singer-songwriter Cameron Bloomfield has unveiled the double release of new single ‘Wanted’ and new EP ‘The Morning After’, out now via Manchild Creations.

An introspective, soul-searching release, ‘The Morning After’ is underpinned by self-reflection, with Bloomfield reaching deep into his emotions. It is the official follow up to his debut EP ‘The Night Before’ released in 2017 which saw him garner support from notable titles like Clash, Spindle and 1883 Magazine.

A haunting, heartfelt snippet, opener ‘Intro’ sets the tone for the rest of the EP.  A downbeat slice of funk/soul follows on lead single ‘Another Man’s Woman’ which received the honor of a world premiere from the legendary Elton John on his ‘Rocket Hour’ radio show. Marking the second time he’s been championed by the industry veteran, following his support of the pre-EP single ‘Lazarus’.

Cameron continues to delve deeper into this terrain with ‘Without You’. ‘So Simple’, combines Bloomfield’s signature velvet vocals with percussive elements and smooth guitar riffs. Closing things out, the aptly named ‘Tequila’ is an ode to the devil’s liquor.

“‘The Morning After’ is coming back to consciousness, feeling what’s going on now, and putting together the pieces of what’s left from The Night Before,” Bloomfield explains. “It’s a particularly visual project for me, one that I have put a lot of myself into, and dealt with a lot of demons through the making.”

He continues: “It’s almost a case study of my relationship with relationships up to this point. Whether they’re my relationships with women, with music, with partying, with life, in general, my default position has been to dive in headfirst and see what happens. I still don’t disagree with this as a mentality but ‘The Morning After’ is checking myself for a second, realizing the road and working out how to go on.”

A polished, pop and soul-infused track, the latest single ‘Wanted’ sees Bloomfield craft an infectiously upbeat and motivational vibe. Inspired by an epiphany Cameron came to after experiencing some personal turmoil, the song is an inspirational anthem about harnessing the power we have to change the situations we find ourselves in.

He explains: “The song came at a time when I was realizing a lot about myself and my situations. It was a real turning point in my perspective – mainly to stop looking everywhere else to explain why things weren’t working out and take a bit of responsibility. I wanted to create something sonically that had a bittersweet feeling, both uplifting and reminiscent, grateful and regretful in equal measure.”

Bloomfield will perform live at East London venue The Old Blue Last for a headline show on 25th November. The performance comes from having recently played an intimate set at MTV’s PUSH Live alongside Joy Crookes and Sody at Tape London.

A finely crafted selection of tracks, ‘The Morning After’ is evidence of an artist who has deftly tapped into his emotional psyche.
