Swedish Pop Duo I AM KARATE Release New Single ‘News’




Highly acclaimed Swedish pop duo I Am Karate have released their brand new single ‘News’.

The new single features a bouncy tropical rhythm alongside a gigantic chorus and shimmering pop production as the band addresses the search for fame and love.

Regarding the single I Am Karate say, “This song is about someone chasing a dream and the spotlight, but if you take a closer look it’s also a love story. We’ve played ‘News’ live at our latest concerts, and the response has been amazing. We hope that’s an indication that people will like the single!”

The Stockholm duo (Erika Soldh Ahlström and Marta Petterson) have released a slew of singles which have seen them achieve huge praise from the likes of The Times, The Guardian and many more.

‘News’ is out now through the pair’s own label I Am Karate Music, and their hits have seen them win the Best Unsigned Award at the highly revered GAFFA Awards in their home country.

“Dark, shiny electropop from the Swedish duo — think Robyn produced by James Blake.” The Times

“I Am Karate martial their artistry with aplomb. They will chop your head off, in the nicest possible way, with their marvellously maudlin and mordantly mellow mid-tempo melodies.”
The Guardian

“Your new favourite duo”
The 405



BANG BANG ROMEO Unveil Astonishing Debut EP, Shame On You – Out Now




UK trio Bang Bang Romeo are celebrating the release of their Shame On You EP, which is out now via Five Seven Music.

Having recently signed a worldwide deal with the label as part of the Eleven Seven Music Label Group, in August the three-piece performed a very special showcase in London to mark the release before they joined the eccentric Electric Six for a show at Nambucca.

Speaking about the EP, vocalist Anastasia “Stars” Walker reveals, “This is a biggy, isn’t it?  I mean, this EP includes songs that myself and Ross wrote when we were pretty much just kids, writing down lyrics at 3am whilst not catching up on enough sleep for school the next day, to songs we wrote in the land of Hollywood just round the corner from Sunset Boulevard in the Spring of 2018. 

This EP represents a journey of hard work, passion, uncompromising belief and a hell of a lot of fun. From myself and the boys, on listening to the EP, enjoy, laugh, cry and love, we know we did. Here’s to the future and WELCOME to the BBRMY”.

The EP opens with the title-track and recent breakthrough single ‘Shame On You’, which has already amassed over 150,000 YouTube views for the video and has been played at Radio X, 6 Music, MTV Rocks and more.

Also featuring is the uplifting ‘Cemetery’ followed by the show-stopping ‘Adore Me’, which soars to a grand performance with Stars’ vocal finesse taking centre stage, perfectly wrapped in euphoric guitar lines and solid drums. The empowering ‘Bag Of Bones’ reflects on recognising self-worth while EP closer ‘Chemical’ echoes the band’s larger-than-life quality and ability to transpire emotion to their listeners.

Bang Bang Romeo have spent the summer playing festivals, shows and Pride events up and down the country, impressing crowds with their stunning live performances and theatrical indie pop-rock.

Fronted by the extraordinary vocal powerhouse Stars – who is a charismatic performer in the lineage of Stevie Nicks, Adele, Beth Ditto and Florence Welch – and backed up by Ross Cameron (guitars) and Richard Gartland (drums), the Doncaster outfit were personally invited by legendary promoter John Giddings to open the Main Stage for the Isle of Wight 50th Anniversary and played to the biggest opening crowd the festival has ever had. Giddings called their performance “legendary” and dubbed them the “best new act anywhere in the World”.

They also played at this year’s Tramlines festival, Kendall Calling and Vicar’s Picnic, and headlined stages at Truck Fest and Y-Not Festivals, as well as Leeds and Doncaster Pride, which the band are extremely proud to be a part of. They also made appearances at Goat Festival, Victorious festival and topped the City Hall Lawns stage at Cardiff Pride in August.

Hotly tipped by the likes of The Independent, Metro, NME, Clash Magazine, Louder Than War and fronted by one of today’s most inspiring and unrivalled vocal talents, Bang Bang Romeo are amongst the hottest breaking bands on the scene and will be releasing their debut album later this year.

Alt Pop Band EXNATIONS Glow On Debut EP “Tiny Sound In The Dark”


Alternative pop trio EXNATIONS bring light to a darkness on their debut EP “Tiny Sound In The Dark,” out NOW. The band, comprised of Sal Mastrocola, Taylor Hughes, and John O’Neill, combines two obviously opposite emotions in their music and meshes them together to create a relatable (and danceable) sound. Although self-defined as a ‘sad’ band, their color palette remains pastel, splashing hues of pale pink and aquamarine throughout their graphics, seemingly representing the dance-able side to their music (and exploring the clear contrast between both emotions). Dream-like, somewhat hazy, synthy; “Tiny Sound In The Dark” is a more-than-promising debut release, laced with sparkle and anticipation. The elements of pop music are clear, but what’s even more fascinating about EXNATIONS is the anthemic sense of empowerment the trio produces on their first effort. To promote the EP release, EXNATIONS has a string of four EP
release shows
this month to promote “Tiny Sound In the Dark,” sponsored by idobi radio’s Spinning Thoughts. About the release of “Tiny Sound In The Dark”, the band states:

“Tiny Sound in the Dark is the most immediate collection of songs I’ve ever had a hand in. The band gave ourselves permission to lean into the unabashed energy and aesthetic of our favorite pop music in a way that still feels true to where we came from. As a guy who has been in punk and emo bands for my whole life, the sounds, textures, and themes we explored on this record brought such a jolt of new energy and enthusiasm to my songwriting process. This EP is the first of many permutations of that enthusiasm and love. We hope you love it”

EXNATIONS are a sad yet danceable brand of guitar-flecked synth pop out of Brooklyn, NY and Baltimore, MD. The group consists of members Sal Mastrocola vocals/guitar/synth), Taylor Hughes (drums/synth) and John O’Neil (bass). Their debut EP, “Tiny Sound In The Dark” is available HERE.

ARCHIE FAULKS Releases Video for Debut Single ‘It Rains’







Archie Faulks has released the video for his debut single ‘It Rains’. The video for the solemn love song finds Archie in a deserted school as two dancers perform around him.

The song features haunting strings among stunning alt-folk and Archie’s irresistible croon. It’s been getting early support from Radio X, with John Kennedy a particularly big fan of Archie at the station.

Regarding the single Archie says, “I wrote ‘It Rains’ about a dying but once great relationship. All we do now is fight and get back together again; with the memories of the glory days being the only thing bringing us back to each other. The song is the realization of this but wanting to retreat to ‘our place’ and cling on for a few more days in the vague hope that we can regain an element of the past and not let us be washed away by the flood.”

Continuing about the video he says, “For the video we wanted something that reflected the song’s feel. Smooth, understated and introspective. Theo, the director, used a combination of 16mm film and digital shots to create a warm aesthetic throughout.”

‘It Rains’ is the debut single from Archie Faulks, who first rose to prominence under the moniker Tenterhook. As Tenterhook he enjoyed tearaway success over the course of two EPs, which spawned radio hits, saw him become a worldwide No.1 on Hype Machine, and clock up millions of plays on Spotify.

Archie Faulks’ return with ‘It Rains’ has been met by a rabid response from fans. It led him to sell out his first ever London headline show way in advance and he will play to a completely sold out Servant Jazz Quarters tonight (Sept 4th).

With the release of the ‘It Rains’ video and the sold out Servant Jazz Quarters, Archie has just announced his next London show. He will headline the stunning St Pancras Old Church on November 12th. Tickets are on-sale now via Music Glue.





IMG_1825Directed by | Nicole Holofcener
Written by | Nicole Holofcener
Produced by | Anthony Bregman, Stefanie Azpiazu, Nicole Holofcener
Starring | Ben Mendelsohn, Edie Falco, Thomas Mann, Elizabeth Marvel, Bill Camp, Charlie Tahan, and Connie Britton

SYNOPSIS: Writer/director Nicole Holofcener (Enough Said, Friends with Money) brings us a drama about parenting, loss and the consequences of our self-destructive behavior.  The story features a deeply flawed male protagonist whose tragic mistakes impact and inform the complex relationships in his life.  Far from a recognizable tale of a middle-aged rake in crisis, this is an emotionally resonant portrait of a fractured family explored by one of our most keenly observant directors.

Feeling trapped in the stifling, wealthy enclave of Westport, Connecticut, Anders Hill (Ben Mendelsohn) retires from his job in finance and leaves his wife (Edie Falco) in the hopes that it will renew his lust for life. However, he’s quickly faced with the startling reality of his choices; he spends his days looking for things to decorate his empty shelves, sleeping with strangers and feeling terribly lost.

Missing his ex-wife and on the outs with his troubled 27-year-old son (Thomas Mann), Anders befriends a drug-addicted teen (Charlie Tahan), sending him down a path of reckless and of deeply regrettable behavior. His shameful actions cause him to question who he is as a father and, ultimately, who he is as a person.

Adapting her screenplay  from Ted Thompson’s 2014 novel, The Land of Steady Habits also stars Connie Britton, Elizabeth Marvel and Bill Camp.

Watch The Land of Steady Habits on Netflix starting September 14!
