Booze? Cosmopolitan.

Nottingham native Elaine Blake is a dynamic gospel and soul singer with a passion for pop is set to unveil her new single ‘The Backdoor Man’ early next year. Having worked on numerous radio stations and played with jazz bands and girl gospel groups, Elaine is ready to unveil her own creative offering.

Elaine Blake was born in Clarendon – Jamaica and raised in Nottingham. She spent most of her adolescent there and was joined in the holy union of marriage in the jewel of the Midlands. Politically minded, Elaine spent 12 years as a local councillor in Newcastle where she encountered people from all walks of life that subsequently inspired her music and lyricism. She wanted to embody what makes people happy and put on smile on people’s faces.

She describes herself as a sensual, spicy and happy go lucky person and her music translates these qualities perfectly. Her latest offering ‘Back Door Man’ is a joyous song inspired by her eldest son’s love for cooking in the kitchen at the back of the house and the beauty of friendship.

Elaine cites influences ranging from RnB, soul and pop and sounds like a combination of Macey Gray and Tracy Chapman by way of Natalie Cole and Chaka Khan. She has mastered the ability of writing a catchy song with meaning and is well on her way to cementing herself as a pop staple with the short, sharp and sensual hit ‘The Backdoor Man’

The new single from Elaine Blake is out on February 12th

Olivia Shafique

Booze!? Cocktail!

She’s already been asked to go on reality shows like ‘Life on Marbs’, which will be shown on ITVBe.  In the same way as The Only Way Is Essex, it would be following her life and her singing career.

It’s all very impressive for a first release, and fitting that the song itself is all about being positive, picking yourself up and starting again when things go wrong.

This pop starlet ready to release her newest single ‘Cruel Love’

Scarlet small

Booze!? Tequila!

A huge fan, Head of Absolute Radio James Curran had this to say following a recent blockbusting performance at Hard Rock Rising in London:

“By far the best female vocal we have seen in this competition!”

BBC Introducing Oxford have debuted Cruel Love already with DJ Dave Gilyeat saying “this track should be in the charts”! Add to that Kat Orman of BBC Oxford labelling her ‘One To Watch’ in 2015 and the stars are aligning for Scarlet Baxter.

Single ‘Cruel Love’, released on July 20th, will no doubt continue to win over fans with its superb production values and slick pop sound:

“Scarlet has no fear and has clear goals to make 2015 her year” – Mark Boardman (Music Journalist).

Described by Cigarette Sounds as “the next woman of pop”, Scarlet Baxter’s rise has been meteoric. Working consistently in a tight knit team with talented guitarist Dominic Ireland and co-writers, John McLaughlin, Judd Mahoney & Natalie DeLucia, Scarlet has derived an entire catalogue of original material in only a year. The team specialise in catchy, radio ready tunes with genuine feel good factor – as proven by excellent previous singles ‘Backsliding’, ‘Stuck’ and ‘Down With It’.

Kinky Dove rock out with new self-titled EP

3 track release set to be unleashed on June 15th

scott_2

Born in Australia but now living in London, Kinky Dove is the musical moniker of frontman Scott Wade and his evolving collective of musicians. Progenitors of gritty, driving rock, the group are readying themselves for a fresh assault on the music industry with a brand new three track EP.

Their particular brand of rock and roll, defined in many ways by the bluesy, post-rock growl of Wade on vocals, is currently in short supply both nationally and globally, and Kinky Dove are now looking to redress that balance.

For a taste of their punchy style, check out the video to EP track ‘Some Kind of Fool’, featuring an epic slap-happy montage of Hollywood moments.

The EP also features a remix/cover version of classic 1978 track ‘Another Girl Another Planet’ by The Only Ones – in this case titled simply ‘Another Girl’.

There is also a trance remix of ‘It’s Called Heartache’ on the EP. You can find the video for this at

The EP is online at

Produced by Chris Kimsey, previously of Olympic Studios, the EP marks Kinky Dove out as one of the earthiest rock bands on the scene. Fans of Scott Wade and Kinky Dove before they began working together, the producer understood the style and heights at which the music was aiming, and helped mould that vision into the musical reality that Kinky Dove has become.

The CD was mixed by Wade. Studio legend Phill Brown loved the sound of the CD, commenting that the mixes were “open and alive.”

The resulting EP is a continuation of form from previous album ‘Kinky Dove vol. 1’, and the latest step in Kinky Dove’s climb.

Vanbot due to release new album “Perfect Storm” 15th May

“Why are Swedish female pop stars always so brilliant?…”  – The Guardian

“Thrilling” – NYLON Magazine

“Massive,  pumped full of space-age electronica & soaring synthesizers…” – MTV Buzzworthy

ZCapture

Stockholm melody master Vanbot has announced her return with upcoming albumPerfect Storm, the electro-pop purist’s follow-up album to her 2011 debut. Riding on the acclaim from the likes of Nylon, The Guardian, Pop Justice, Interview Magazine and MTV, the Johannes Berglund (The Knife, I Break Horses) produced & mixed record sees Vanbot embark on a darker and more evocative spectrum than previous outings.

Shelving a virtually complete album in 2013 after a creative breakdown, Vanbot (real name Ester Ideskog) began anew and vowed to lean away from musical norm in search of a greater bite and growl. Despite the change in direction, Vanbot still thrives on the same DIY spirit and never ending enthusiasm for crafting unstoppable pop. The result is one of the strongest pop albums of the year so far, where every song has great single potential, whilst the complete listen takes one one a unique journey.

Perfect Storm is shadowy and dangerous and will rub soldiers with the likes of Lykke Li’s 2014 release I Never Learn and Robyn’s Body Talk series. Vanbot’s trademark melody perfection from previous releases remains but it has been made slicker and more pliable, now part of the wider conversation and not the sole focus. Driving beats and tense compositions now take precedence, with Vanbot now leaner, edgier and gloriously confident in her freedom to create exactly what she wants with part co-writers Jan Kask and Adam Olenius (Say Lou Lou, Tove Styrke, Shout Out Louds).

Perfect Storm will be released 15th May via Lisch Recordings and Sony Music Sweden, with Vanbot appearing in a number of European performances including London’s Hoxton Bar & Grill on 8th May.

Track list:

  1. Perfect Storm (Part I)
  2. Trooper
  3. The Way You Say It
  4. Bite The Bullet
  5. Watching You Sleep
  6. Shake
  7. Maniac
  8. June
  9. Seven
  10. Better In The Light
  11. Secrets
  12. Stay Alive
  13. Perfect Storm (Part II)
