March 27, 2020 Indie-Rock band Voodoo Bandits shares music video

Indie-Rock band Voodoo Bandits shares music video

Four-piece indie rock group the Voodoo Bandits have just premiered their music video for their song ‘Empty Swimming Pools’ via Clash Magazine. They have been featured on Youtube channels to watch such as Fancy Melancholic and Sounds New Sounds Good. The group has a collective stream rate of 140 000 plays thus far. Their debut single was voted as track of the week on Indie Rocks Radio Manchester. Voodoo Bandits have also been included Idobi Radio’s “Anthm” playlist, as well as inclusion in Spotify’s ‘Hot New Bands’ Editorial Playlist. Their previous single ‘Ride The Wave’ premiered via XS Noize, and featured in Indie Central Music, Echoes and Dust, and Music Injection. 

 

The entire group was born and raised in the Bee Gees neighborhood, the Isle of Man. Two members are still residing there, while two are studying at universities in Liverpool and Newcastle. The band consists of band members Ben Donaldson (Rhythm Guitar & Vocals), Corey Vaughan (Lead Guitar), Nathan Vaughan (Drums) and Charlotte Wilby (Bass). Voodoo Bandits have cited musical influences from Circa Waves and Hockey Dad for their energetic and warm atmosphere that they create with their music. Their music video captures the joyful atmosphere and energy of the band and pays homage to the 90’s skateboarding scene. 

Voodoo Bandits explains the meaning behind the video, We wanted to create a fun, easy-going, video that accompanied the vibe of the song. Expressing our personalities as a band; to us the song sounds like a skateboard on a half-pipe, if that makes any sense! So we went down to our local indoor skatepark, grabbed some B-roll of ourselves and some skaters and got jamming! To top it off we used some 90s video cam aesthetics to fit the theme.”

Music duo rosecoloredworld release music video for ‘Walking on the Sun’

LA-based pop duo, rosecoloredworld, continue to take on the Sunset Strip with the release of their debut single’s music video “Walking on the Sun.” Addison Scott and RAE merge their real-life romance with mystical energies to throw a tea party complete with rainbow lollipops, giant sunglasses, glam trimmings and FUN without any of the pretension.

rosecoloredworld did right by their namesake and mission statement in their debut music video. Their energetic vocals and funk-filled beats parallel the video exactly and tell the story of who rosecoloredworld is and what they’re about. The video plays out like a Friday night party that just happened to be caught on film because for the most part, it was. The band invited their friends and family to take part in the video in order to allow for a genuine glimpse into their rose-coloured world and those who helped them create it.

The couple’s unwavering positivity is heard in the single and they wanted the video to be a visual representation of that as well. With the help of a local artist, Jim Budman, who immediately understood their vision, they were able to turn their fantasy into reality. Budman opened his Venice studio to rosecoloredworld and their family to host the psychedelic kickback where they were about to express their radical energy and welcome all who listen to join their rose-coloured world.

Born out of two burgeoning solo careers on parallel tracks, Addison and RAE met at a show while both wearing rose-colored glasses on the night that Tom Petty passed away. Although music came first, their undeniable chemistry brought them together romantically as well. Addison has adopted RAE’s spiritual calling to help the homeless, raise money for Children’s Miracle Network, and speaking at schools to promote kindness, respect, and love. This is the foundation rosecoloredworld was built on and will be a reoccurring theme throughout their upcoming release. rosecoloredworld will be taking part in Sofar Sounds in NYC on December 2nd.

Music Producer Methyl Ethel Announce London Headline Show & European Tour with Mac DeMarco

Methyl Ethel, the musical project of Jake Webb, has announced details of a special headline London show at Peckham Audio on 19th November. This will be the first outing as a duo, where Webb will be joined onstage by regular live band member Thom Stewart. The pair will also open for Mac DeMarco on his forthcoming European tour next month. Tickets for all shows are now on sale. Visit methylethel.com for more details. 

Methyl Ethel’s latest album Triage is the third of a triptych Webb started with Oh Inhuman Spectacle (2015) and continued with Everything Is Forgotten (2017) which was named Best Independent Album by AIR, the Australian Independent Record Labels Association. Methyl Ethel has always been a surrealist outfit – a dark and obscured expression of life set to the backdrop of dream pop hooks. But Triage is a more reflective album – one that explores the notion of coming of age, only to reference it for the snapshots and passing memories that it has become.

9 November – COPENHAGEN, Vega * 

10 November – HAMBURG, Große Freiheit 36 *

October 30, 2019 Rock band October Drift releases new music video from the song ‘Forever Whatever’

Rock band October Drift releases new music video from the song ‘Forever Whatever’

October Drift has shared the video for their new single, ‘Forever Whatever,’ the title track and latest single to be taken from their upcoming debut album, out on January 24th via Physical Education Records.

A powerful demonstration of the band’s formidable live presence, the video sees the band perform the track in a seamless one-take shot amid the atmospheric setting of an empty warehouse, with thrashing theatrics emphasizing its emotionally charged sentiment.

“Filming music videos usually fills us with dread, and seeing as we filmed this one on the only day off during a three-week tour we were a little pessimistic,” explain the band. “So when the videographers suggested doing a one-shot performance video we were all pleased. We basically just played the song as we would live, once in front of the camera and that was that. No point in doing it over and over again and killing the vibe. We find this kind of thing works better if you don’t overthink it.”

 A juxtaposition of calm and chaos, the track combines the brooding emotion of Joy Division and New Order with the volatility of The Bends-era Radiohead. Swelling and anthemic, the track opens to an engulfing explosion of distorted guitars, before hushed verses highlight the track’s elegiac yet hopeful lyricism. Frontman Kiran Roy’s potent vocals are set against resonant instrumentals, before launching into a chorus charged with immersive intensity.

 ‘Forever Whatever’ follows their previous singles ‘Losing My Touch’ – released earlier this year – and ‘All Broken Down’ and ‘Come And Find Me’, released to widespread acclaim last year. With influences as varied as The National, Radiohead, Interpol and Nick Drake, their heavy, pop-inflected rock is delivering a rejuvenating injection of fresh blood to the genre.

 October Drift’s debut album, Forever Whatever, is a cathartic collection of tracks encompassing themes of loneliness, fear and ultimate positivity, and builds on the solid foundation that they have built over years of touring and writing to cement themselves as an important and powerful new presence.

 One of the most electrifying, charismatic and formidable live acts of the past two years – with appearances at festivals including Glastonbury’s John Peel stage, Reading & Leeds and The Great Escape, as well as a major European tour with Editors in 2018 and a slot at Liverpool’s Sound City – the band look certain to ascend to even greater heights in 2020.
