Black Light White Light "High Like A Hurricane" Set For Release

Black Light White Light are a three piece band that, if you’re a fan of Rock, Indie (with some psychedelic, too) you should be listening to. Their last album “Infrared Daylight” was massive for them and cemented them a position in the Rock world. Growing bigger by the day, they are keeping the ball rolling and have just announced a new single release for June 16 2014 called “High Like A Hurricane” with a B-Side “Sex And Fury”. If you are on the look for something new to listen to, then these guys are where you should start, with enough of a back catalogue to give you something to really dive into. With this in mind, here is a single from their last album to give you a taster. Find the video below for “Higher Than Low”. Their next single “High Like A Hurricane" is set for release June 16 2014.

Robin Romei /// Excitement For Next Release 'VAPOURS'

Brighton based Robin Romei is quickly becoming a larger name on the UK music scene. His sound is that of a dark mix of rock and electro. It seems more people are hearing his name and his fanbase is quickly increasing, he has played some impressive venues around Europe and the U.S., The Whisky a Go Go being a noteable one having made such an impact on so many successful bands careers. His music taps into the ears of a number of different genres. It has enough retro synth sounds and 4 to the floor drum eats to nod your head to as you would to many electronic artists, however, the raw sound of guitars and the integrity of his voice/ lyrics give him an extra depth which flows more into the rock side of things. His last EP "EFFY / (WE ARE) THE UNDERDOGS” solidified his position as a groundbreaking artist with a true talent for song-writing and lyrical capability, so it comes as no surprise that fans are very excited for his next release, ‘VAPOURS’. If VAPOURS is anything as impressive as his previous release he is set for a big year of growth and a huge increase of fans. Word is already going around for VAPOURS so there will be a lot of attention towards its release. The EP is set for release 7 July 2014, it is one to look out for as he is a true talent accessible to the ears of most listeners, no matter what genre you glue yourself to. Find the single 'EFFY' from his November 2013 EP below.

Then Thickens /// Tiny Legs

Grown from solo project to sextet, Then Thickens gives a good impression with its debut album ´Death Cap At Anglezarke´. This upcoming band combines grunge and pop sounds full of soft harmonies of Jon-Lee Martin and Helen Thorpe. There´s nothing revolutionary in ´Death Cap At Anglezarke´, but it´s a good album with some radio-friendly songs and Then Thickens has definately the potential to become a big name.

The Roots /// Album Artwork Reveal

The Roots 11th studio album ‘And Then You Shoot Your Cousin’ now has some artwork to sit alongside it. The album is set for release the 20th May. They released “When The People Cheer” last month to give a taster of the new album. The track is a real refreshing hear if you’re a fan of hip-hop. Sticking to the true, original culture of the genre it is built from rusty sounding vinyl drums, a melodic piano sample and strung together but the globally recognised hip-hop flow of The Roots.

Fujiya & Miyagi /// Artificial Sweeteners

Despite the name, Fujiya & Miyagi isn't a Japanese duo but a trio from Brighton.  It has been three years since their last album ´Ventriloquizzing´ but the sound hasn´t changed much in their newest album ´Artificial Sweeteners´. Fujiya & Miyagi´s roots are in krautrock and the album has a lot of influences from bands like Neu! and Kraftwerk.  The single ´Flaws´ makes you want to hit the dance floor straight away but loses its interest towards the end.  Being two minutes shorter ´Flaws´ would be a great song, but now, it repeats itself too much and I am not a big fan of fading outs.
