HEADLINE LONDON SHOW ANNOUNCED
CAMDEN ASSEMBLY – MAY 4th

PLAYING SUMMER FESTIVALS
HIT THE NORTH, LIVE AT LEEDS, DOT TO DOT & BARN ON THE FARM

Fast-rising London collective SUN SILVA have released the video for their critically acclaimed new single ‘Sun Skin Air’. The band have also announced a headline London show at Camden Assembly on May 4th. Tickets are on sale now via Live Nation.

‘Sun Skin Air’ is a high-octane cut that combines propulsive beats with Temples-esque harmony-laden psychedelic flourishes. The trippy accompanying video captures the band performing across London amid waves of cosmic mind-bending visuals.

Regarding the single frontman Oscar Gormley says, “We wrote ‘Sun Skin Air’ in a horrible hostel with no fan during a visit to Spain. It’s a hard hitter, kind of Krauty and a bit gritty – probably due to the frustration of being in that room. This song is much weirder than ‘Blue Light’, which is the way we wanted to go with this one.”

‘Sun Skin Air’ has been added to the NME Radio playlist and championed by John Kennedy on his Radio X ‘Xposure’ show. The song has also received strong support from press tastemakers including NME, DIY and many others.

It follows the release of their debut single ‘Blue Light’ last year. Its release saw SUN SILVA burst onto the scene and achieve strong critical acclaim from the likes of DIY, Dork and Clash, alongside major radio support from Radio 1, Radio X and BBC Introducing.

SUN SILVA have been quick to put their firm stamp on the UK live scene and have already played an impressive number of sold out headline shows in London including The Lexington, Sebright Arms and Paper Dress Vintage.

Last year SUN SILVA completed their first tour of the UK in association with the Radio 1 Indie Show. Additionally they played major support slots for the likes of Jungle, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and Swimming Girls, while also making their debut festival appearance at Manchester’s Neighbourhood Festival.

The band will play further festivals this year and have been announced to perform at Live At Leeds, Dot To Dot, Hit The North and Barn On The Farm. The band have also been announced to support Luna Bay at London’s OMEARA on March 11th.

SUN SILVA have been quick to prove themselves one of the most exciting and in-demand bands to emerge from London and 2019 looks set to be a defining year for the collective.

SUN SILVA are Oscar Gormley (vocals/guitar), Charlie Woof-Byrne (keys), Jake Brown (drums), Sam Becker (bass).

YOUTUBE / SPOTIFY

2019 HEADLINE TOUR CONFIRMED
AHEAD OF US SHOWS SUPPORTING IRON MAIDEN

British metal five piece The Raven Age continue their unstoppable rise as torch-bearers for the next generation of UK metal. Their brooding style of monstrous guitar riffs and pummelling rhythms are entwined with powerful melodies and moments of quiet subtlety, adding a touch of epic finesse to their sound which has seen them deservedly play alongside the genre’s giants such as Killswitch Engage, Mastodon, Tremonti, Anthrax, Iron Maiden, Ghost and many more.

The quintet are now happy to announce the upcoming release of their second album Conspiracy on March 8th 2019 via their own label Corvid Records. They have also revealed the brand new track ‘Fleur De Lis’, which shares its name with the ancient stylized lily symbol that has long been associated with the heraldry of French royalty as well as linked to unity, loyalty and honour.

LISTEN TO ‘FLEUR DE LIS’ HERE

In further news The Raven Age will be heading out on their biggest headline tour to date in support of Conspiracy. They’ll be playing shows across the UK and Europe – see full dates at the bottom of the press release. Tickets go on sale on Friday 14th December:

The Raven Age released their critically acclaimed debut album Darkness Will Rise in 2016. It saw them championed by the likes of Metal Hammer and Planet Rock, who crowned them ‘Best New Band 2017’ at their awards, and earned them slots at festivals such as Bloodstock, Hellfest, Wacken Open Air, Rock Am Ring/Rock Im Park and Download.

The band have continued to spread their wings, honing their craft, perfecting their sound and identity, and with the recent addition of vocalist Matt James (aka MJ) and guitarist Tony Maue bringing a new dimension and diversity to the band’s songwriting and sound, they’ve created the new era of The Raven Age which is evident throughout the entirety of Conspiracy.

Co-founder, guitarist and album producer George Harris explains, “We’re so proud of it – it’s definitely keeping within the spirit of the band but we’ve really expanded what we can do and delved into new topics and sounds. A lot of that is to do with what MJ has brought to the band. With him on board we’ve grown enormously from the first album.”

Drawing inspiration from their interest in historical myths and conspiracies, lyrically the tracks tell stories of desperation and inhumanity throughout different periods of time, delving into the lives and experiences of people from years ago.

The album is the second part to their story, where clues are left in everything from the artwork to the lyrics which point to what may later come to pass, and interlock with what The Raven Age is all about. They’ve created something more than just a record, but instead an artistic, conceptual identity as they set to write their own legacy.

“I’ve always been fascinated by the legend of the ravens of the Tower of London,” continues George. “The fact that the collective noun for ravens is a Conspiracy really inspired the album, the title and the artwork around it. In this fantasy world the ravens are actually being held captive at the Tower, they aren’t there of their own accord. Their wings have been clipped and they’re prisoners of the Tower to keep Britain from falling. This record develops the story with all sorts of twists and tangents”

The album opens with a harmonious instrumental, equipped with delicate guitar lines and an accompaniment of euphoric synths and strings before yielding into recent single ‘Betrayal of the Mind’, which was written as a result of mental health issues, spreading awareness through the lyrics of how it affects so many people in different ways.

It then leads into the raging metal riff of the aforementioned ‘Fleur De Lis’ and ‘The Day The World Stood Still’, which enters with a melodious dynamic, creating space between the album’s brutal moments, soaring into a momentous chorus showcasing James’ vocal capabilities.

Elsewhere the racing Christian mysticism inspired ‘Stigmata’ is filled with thunderous drum patterns from Jai Patel and heavy bass parts from Matt Cox, while the haunting intro of ‘Seventh Heaven’ explodes into a colossal outbreak of commanding riffs expertly executed by guitarists George Harris and Tony Maue before dropping to a stripped-back section with James’ exposed vocals taking centre stage.

Continuing their running theme of historic references, the calmer ‘The Face That Launched A Thousand Ships’ draws inspiration from the legend of Helen of Troy, whose incomparable beauty resulted in a fleet of a thousand ships setting sail to rescue her leading to the Battle of Troy. Similarly, ‘Tomb of the Unknown Soldier’ is named after the US monument which stands in tribute to those exhumed and unidentified from battles over the years.

Also included is ‘Surrogate’, the album’s debut track from earlier in 2018, and the sharp and fierce ‘Scimitar’ before the epically sullen, grand finale ‘Grave of the Fireflies’, which resumes the dynamic rise and fall that resonates throughout the whole of Conspiracy.

The album reveals a sense of unity, and determination which sits at the core of this group, standing as both a strong and hardworking collective who have shaped and delivered a musically mature and thoughtful release that will mark them as a band of the future.

LIBBY WHITEHOUSE

IMG_3280

‘NEW BOY’
NEW SINGLE OUT NOW
LISTEN HERE

DEBUT HEADLINE SHOW
THE HAUNT, BRIGHTON – NOVEMBER 13th

18 year-old rising pop star Libby Whitehouse has released her new single ‘New Boy’. The Brighton singer calls out cheaters across the world as she delivers a sharp and sassy empowerment pop anthem reminiscent of the likes of Dua Lipa, Mabel and Stefflon Don.

Regarding the single Libby says, “I wrote ‘New Boy’ about my friend who kept going back to a boy who treated her badly, and he’d only become interested again once she’d left him. The song is a fun way of saying, “Well now it’s too late!”, and is about appreciating what you have whilst you have it, because girls won’t wait around forever!!”

Continuing she says, “The track is a different vibe to anything I’ve done before, it’s got more of a dance vibe to it and it’s the first song I ever wrote with my producer Chris Priest. It means so much to me and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it!!”

In just a year Libby has already proved herself to be a fast-rising name on the pop scene. Since emerging in 2017 she’s played at summer festivals including The Great Escape and I Luv Live in London, while she has released well received singles including ‘Cut It Off’, ‘Recipe’ and ‘Hands On Me’, which have clocked up over a million streams, with the latter entering the Spotify UK Viral Chart Top 30.

Now with the release of ‘New Boy’, Libby continues to cement herself as a fresh and exciting new name on the UK pop scene. She will be performing her first ever live show and will headline The Haunt in Brighton on November 13th to celebrate the release of her new music. Tickets are available via SeeTickets.

UK/EUROPE HEADLINE TOUR
LONDON, KOKO – OCTOBER 25th

LILY AHLBERG (ALL DATES) & DUSKY GREY (UK ONLY)
ANNOUNCED AS SUPPORT

Rising pop star Emma Blackery has released her brand new single ‘Take Me Out’, taken from her forthcoming debut album Villains out August 31st through RWG Records.

‘Take Me Out’ has featured on six Spotify ‘New Music Friday’ playlists today including the UK. It’s a huge pop banger stacked with attitude and boasting a massive chorus.

Regarding the single Emma says, “I’m really excited for everyone to hear it. It’s a song I really connect with and one of my favourites from Villains. The song deals with feelings of paranoia when you are feeling exposed and isolated by your friends.”

Toby Scott (Little Mix, Girls Aloud, The Saturdays) has produced ‘Take Me Out’, and was also behind Emma’s recent singles ‘Icarus’, ‘Agenda’ and ‘Dirt’, which are all taken from her forthcoming album Villains.

Villains is a record inspired by a period of reflection and one that invites listeners on Emma’s journey from, as she explains, “feeling so paranoid that I risked becoming a person I didn’t like, to letting go of all of that hurt”.

The atmospheric album opener ‘Villains Pt. 1’ sees her declare, “I am a nightmare… designed to destroy” over a beat that drips with menace. Elsewhere, ‘Petty’ (“You used to call me pretty, then you took out the “r””) flirts with tropical house, and her restrained vocal on ballad ‘What I Felt With You’ simmers with longing. By the album’s explosive closer, ‘Villains Pt. 2’, Emma is forced to consider her own part in her downfall, asking, “Am I kidding myself, blaming somebody else, I’m my own biggest villain.” On creating the album Emma says, “Writing the album was so cathartic. Music is my therapy.”

In support of the album’s release the Essex-born singer has announced an HMV in-store tour where she will be signing copies of Villains and performing songs from the album live. HMV will be stocking exclusive yellow edition color vinyl of the new album and the tour will call at seven stores across the country.

Following this Emma will be head out on an extensive headline tour across the UK and Europe, which will finish with a headline show at London’s KOKO on October 25th. Full Emma Blackery tour dates can be found below:

“If it’s difficult to know where to place Y.O.U.N.G then that’s probably mission accomplished for the Manchester collective… the group fuse hip-hop beats with an outlandish pop touch” – CLASH

UK HEADLINE TOUR
STARTS THIS WEEK

Genre-blending Manchester collective Y.O.U.N.G have shared the video for their latest single ‘Lazy’, featuring their own ‘lazy hacks’. It premiered on Clash who said, “New single ‘Lazy’ is fast becoming their calling card, a tongue-in-cheek response to parents, teachers and other buzzkills”,

The youthful five-piece kick back in the new single with chilled hip-hop beats and mellow reggae guitars alongside a bleary-eyed flow, rising into an infectious chorus – all combining to create an anthem for lazy people across the world.

The group have now followed this up by revealing a video of them struggling through their daily routine, featuring a guide of hacks for lazy people, including car-based dog walking, kettle-based pasta cookery, and the inspired pizza-in-a-toaster.

Rapper Ben James said of the track, “Our whole lives people have been calling us lazy. The track plays on the idea of what we would do every day if we were as lazy as people said. It’s true everybody has lazy days, we are no exception, but overall the aim of ‘Lazy’ is to mock the idea that all we do is nothing.

“The chorus is written from the point of view of the patronising adult, whilst the rap verse gives a first hand view of what a lazy day would consist of. Even though the song is a mockery, we can’t deny that brews, candles and chilling are genuine passions of ours! Dressing gowns make an appearance in the live show, bringing the laid back bedroom vibes to the stage and adding to the tongue in cheek nature of the tune.”

The five-piece (Chez Davis – vocals/guitar, Ben James – rap, James Skehan – guitar/production, Tom Whitehead – bass and Graeme Smith – drums) have built a fervent fanbase across Europe with their cheeky genre mash-ups and extensive touring.

Y.O.U.N.G will be playing their first ever UK headline in association with Live Nation through February and March. The band will play five-dates calling at Glasgow, Birmingham, Newcastle, London and Manchester. Tickets are on sale now via TicketWeb.

VIRGIN RADIO ‘RECORD OF THE WEEK’

Dan Owen has released the video for his brand new single ‘Hideaway’, out now through Atlantic Records.

The video sees Dan playing one half of an escaping couple, running from attackers through a menacing English countryside setting as they are caught up in an intense car chase and terrorised by snarling attack dogs.

‘Hideaway’ enlists huge blues riffs which bolster the mighty soulful tones of Dan’s jaw-dropping vocal abilities. The song is achieving widespread exposure with plays at Radio 2 from Dermot O’Leary, Zoe Ball and Joe Whiely, while it has also been featured as Virgin Radio’s recent ‘Record Of The Week’ and soundtracks the Boots No.7 televised and online advert.

Dan has gained critical acclaim across the world following his debut release on Atlantic Records with ‘Moonlight’ earlier this year. He has become a big live draw across the UK and Europe and has just completed a 16-date sold out headline tour, including a headline show at London’s OMEARA last night. He’s also played a number of high profile festivals this summer including Latitude and Barn On The Farm among many others.

With the release of ‘Hideaway’ we find the Shrewsbury singer at his most bold and determined yet, delivering an impressive statement as one of the most exciting new voices in the UK today. His debut album will be released next year.

PLUS HEADLINING LONDON’S ULU AUGUST 29TH

US trio X Ambassadors return with a brand new single ‘Ahead Of Myself’, which is the lead track from their upcoming second album.

Released today, ‘Ahead Of Myself’ was co-written with American multi-platinum selling songwriter, producer, and musician Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes, Chainsmokers) and was added straight onto Spotify’s UK and Global New Music Playlists as well as Deezer and Amazon’s Brand New Music UK playlists.

‘Ahead Of Myself’ is the first taste of their new album, the follow up to the critically acclaimed, gold-certified debut album VHS, which featured the two multi-platinum hits ‘Renegades’ and ‘Unsteady’.

The success of VHS saw X Ambassadors venture out on a near two-year touring odyssey, winning over fans around the world and performing at the likes of Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Life is Beautiful, Shaky Knees festivals and many more.

The three-piece, formed of brothers Sam and Casey Harris and college friend Adam Levin, have collaborated with a number of top names such as Tom Morello, Elle King, A$AP Ferg, Wiz Khalifa, Eminem and label mates Imagine Dragons.

Earlier this year they gave fans a taste of their current sonic direction with the release of ‘The Devil You Know’, which featured in a trailer for the upcoming Tom Cruise film American Made, ‘Torches’ which was heard in Transformers: The Last Knight, and the inspirational ‘Hoping’, which came about following the US presidential election.

X Ambassadors will be playing the Radio 1/NME stage at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festival before headlining a show at London’s ULU on August 29th.

FRANCESCA UK DVD RELEASE – JULY 3RD 2017 | #horrorfilm

b15a7362-2eba-406a-b897-f86be8a515d1 2ABSOLUTE GIALLO “FRANCESCA” GETS UK RELEASE

Jinga Films and Matchbox Films are pleased to announce the UK release of Nicolas Onetti’s giallo homage FRANCESCA which will be released on Bluray, DVD and VOD from July 3rd 2017.

A psychopath stalks the city cleaning it of “impure and damned souls”. Moretti and Succo are the detectives tasked with resolving these “Dantesque” crimes. The secret is eventually revealed by Francesca, a little girl who was abducted 15 years ago, but has now reappeared.

Like Barberian Sound Studio, Amer and The Strange Colour Of Your Bodies Tears, FRANCESCA is an authentic and stylish celebration of the Italian giallo crime thrillers of the 60’s and 70’s made popular by Mario Bava and Dario Argento.

FRANCESCA received its World premiere at Cannes where it screened in Blood Windows and has since become a genre festival favourite with screenings at FrightFest, Sitges, Fantasporto, Fantaspoa and Morbido.


<p><a href=”https://vimeo.com/158050140″>FRANCESCA – Trailer</a> from <a href=”https://vimeo.com/user9101201″>Jinga Films</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

“The spirit of Giallo is very much alive and kicking in Luciano Onetti’s loving homage to the classic Italian sub genre” 

– Ben Robins, The National Student

 

“Impressive, creative, nostalgic. Onetti’s recreation of Giallo resurrects 1970’s Italian Horror” 

– Kat Hughes, The Hollywood News

 

“Absolute giallo…a truly spectacular blend of sleazy saturation, pop art excess and dark desires”

– Matthew Hammond, Movie Ramblings

 

“Surreal, seductive and violent, a stunning recreation of 70’s giallo” 

– Steve Wright, Britflicks

 

“A masterclass for nostalgia-seeking Giallo fans. You can’t help but wish this was the kind of film Argento was still making”

– Becky Roberts, Horror Talk
