ILLUMINATION PRESENTS DR. SEUSS’ THE GRINCH – In Theaters November 9

Official Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | #TheGrinch

For their eighth fully animated feature, Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss’ beloved holiday classic.  The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit.  Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, it’s a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism.

Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company.  With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Who-ville when he runs out of food.

Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter and louder celebrations.  When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas.  To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh.

Meanwhile, down in Who-ville, Cindy-Lou Who—a young girl overflowing with holiday cheer—plots with her gang of friends to trap Santa Claus as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds so that she can thank him for help for her overworked single mother.  As Christmas approaches, however, her good-natured scheme threatens to collide with the Grinch’s more nefarious one.  Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus?  Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all

LIKE SATELLITES Premiere Debut Single “Muscle Memory”

IMG_0957

Although just their debut single, Toronto alternative pop/band Like Satellites show both experience and maturity on “Muscle Memory,” out NOW. A product of over two years of doing underground work, including extensive practicing, lineup changes, and writing/recording new tracks, Like Satellites, featuring lead vocalist Leah Gillespie, are characterized by their commanding melodies. “Muscle Memory,” a track inspired by a turbulent relationship, plays with feelings of teenage-esque angst, while simultaneously weaving in ambient synths, pop structures, and a slew of alternative influences, including some of Gillespie’s classic female-empowered favorites, Hey Monday, We Are The In Crowd, and Paramore. To promote the single release, Like Satellites released an accompanying lyric video, which can be viewed here. About “Muscle Memory,” the band states:

“Muscle Memory” was a song that came out of a breakup with a former band I (Leah Gillespie) was in so it’s pretty angry. It was pretty messy, and people I thought were my best friends were telling me that I was nothing without them. When I sat down to write I was bitter, angry, but mostly defiant. I love that this is the song we’re releasing first because of that. Getting all those feelings out there, and having other people love it too is like being vindicated in my belief that what we’re doing is enough.”

Like Satellites is a Toronto based alternative pop/rock band anchored by singer Leah Gillespie, and bassist Logan Arsenault. After two years of practicing, writing, and reworking their lineup they are finally releasing their much anticipated single Muscle Memory produced by Sam Guaiana (Like Pacific, Rarity, Carried Away, We Were Sharks) and mastered by Andy Krehm. They are currently playing with Ryan Goodman on guitar, and Alex Bullen on drums. With shows planned across the Toronto area, and an EP planned for this Winter, Like Satellites is poised to explode onto the music scene. From their inception in 2016, Like Satellites has been the love-child of singer/songwriter Leah Gillespie (also known as Leahishazy). With a penchant for soaring melodies and punchy lyrics, she has been a slow-burner in the local music scene. With influences ranging from We are the In Crowd, All Time Low, The 1975, and Lights to Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Something Corporate, and Bring Me The Horizon, Like Satellites has a fresh sound that still hints at summers at Warped Tour and teenage angst. They blend their collective experience in bands to create the right balance of maturity and melodrama, and through everything one thing has remained stable: this band’s drive to release music that people want to listen to with the windows down and the volume turned way up. “Muscle Memory” is available NOW.

Norwegian Singer ISELIN Releases Debut Single ‘Bathtub’ 

ISELIN

d25ac2f0-7baf-4edd-886a-87ab1ad37be2

RELEASES NEW SINGLE
‘BATHTUB’
WATCH THE LYRIC VIDEO HERE

Fresh from providing vocals on Alan Walker’s huge hits ‘Faded’ and ‘Sing Me To Sleep’, Iselin returns with her debut solo release, ‘Bathtub’. Conceived after an emotionally tumultuous period in her life, the track is a call to take care of yourself.

A minimalistic pop gem, the track is an undulating voyage of glistening vocals and subtle production, with captivating melodies and an infectious chorus.

“I’d done the singer-songwriter thing for a while and all of my friends started to get educations and stuff, and I kind of got insecure about music for the first time… whether I should do it or not… it all got a bit too much”, says Iselin Solheim. “I felt a bit stressed a while ago, and at the time I was supposed to have many sessions in Stockholm. After one of my sessions I retreated to my hotel bathtub to unwind, and was inspired to write the track.”

Taking her inspiration back to the studio the next day, she found a musical affinity with the idea of taking a moment to find some serenity in each day. “I have to remind myself sometimes that I can just take away all the negative thoughts and just focus on good stuff… just find those moments”, says Iselin.

The sentiment transcended the song, forming her own personal therapy and helping to overcome the stress she had been suffering with, and is one that she hopes will connect with her audience.

Returning with this new single, and a wealth of material to follow, it’s clear that Iselin is ready to secure her place as a powerful new musical force.

BRAND NEW LYRIC VIDEO ‘ONE NIGHT ONLY’ WATCH HERE

ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE
“OUR FAVOURITE SONGS RIGHT NOW!”
“Like the Strokes reborn as Queen super-fans – right down to singer Luke Spiller’s amazingly spot-on Freddie Mercury impression.”

Due to overwhelming demand, The Struts’ exclusive UK headline show on Monday 18th September – announced last week for The Garage, Islington – will now be at Camden’s Electric Ballroom.

Already proving to be the hottest ticket in town, the flamboyant four-piece stride back across the Atlantic to play in London in celebration of their brand new single ‘One Night Only’, ahead of their massive US tour with Foo Fighters in October.

The recently-released lyric video captures the band in true rock’n’roll style, and is the perfect taster for their hugely anticipated second album, due next year. It’s the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2016 debut Everybody Wants.

WATCH ‘ONE NIGHT ONLY’ HERE

Having recently played to over 60,000 fans supporting The Who in Quebec to a rapturous reception, and being included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s Playlist alongside the likes of NIN, Chance The Rapper and St Vincent, The Struts’ meteoric rise continues a-pace. ‘One Night Only’ has set fire to American radio and looks set to be the breakout hit of the summer.

The single has been greeted with rave reviews in the UK with Kerrang magazine devoting two pages to the band’s magnificent return and The Sun declaring, “’One Night Only’ is an anthemic and bombastic tune inspired by the glory days of British glam rock.”

Classic Rock claim, “The Struts continue their inexorable march to world domination with [their] effervescent new song… a typically huge chorus and bits that sound like Queen and little bits that sound a bit like Coldplay, machined-tooled for swaying audiences and drunken, communal singalongs”, whilst music blogs across the spectrum have been hailing the genius of the new single.

The Struts are Luke Spiller, Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass) and Gethin Davies (drums).
