‘Movements’ EP is due to be released on September 7th.
Currently splitting time between their Northern Italian hometown of Padova and the UK’s capital, songwriters Vidal & Curma are a duo making a name for themselves in London. Playing in some of the most prestigious independent music venues in the city, their reputation has already won them a residency at the revered Proud Camden, where they were invited for repeat showings by popular demand thanks to the innate energy and sense of fun in their songs.
Their music boasts a loose, anarchic freshness without compromising on quality, giving an acoustic twist on the indie likes of The Libertines, The Strokes, Mac Demarco, and Velvet Underground to name a few. But perhaps their closest comparison is less well known – both Vidal and Curma are huge fans of Django Reinhardt, a gypsy guitarist from Belgium who was active from the 30s to the 50s. Reinhardt single-handedly invented the gypsy-jazz genre, and both band members consider him the best guitarist of all time.
His brilliance has clearly rubbed off, and the new three track EP ‘Another Plane’ is a real, offbeat, acoustic treat.

‘Another Plane’ is due for release on August 10th.

With their ready-made, smooth brand of melodic indie pop, Off Colour are a Milton Keynes pair with all the tools to go a long way in 2015.

Their brand new release continues their development with an epic, arena-ready sound, to be followed by a six track EP ‘Touchdown’ towards the later end of the year.
Listen to ‘Touch Down’ here:
July 9th – The Workshop, London
31st July – Lift 574, Dalston
Booze? Jaeger Bomb!
This explosive new EP will leave your head spinning. Following the success of previous track ‘Cheque Me’, featuring London MC Beluga Ice, ShoDem Records joined up with the talented Sky KraftHouse Beats and returned with a new, six track EP “Extraction” due for release 31st January from their latest signing, MSL.
Based in London and influenced by a heady cocktail of Swans, Spiritualized, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Radiohead, 60s pop, Middle Eastern classical music and more, Slows Down is the musical pseudonym of multi-talented solo artist Alexander Hawthorne.
Protz music has the power to transport you into a world of bliss and you slowly drift away on his perfect composition.
The lack of lyrics in the music invites the listen to assume their own interpretation of the heavenly sounds.
Booze…? Thoughtful Gin and Tonic
Jesse Lowes is a natural when it comes to pouring your heart into your music. Every lyric from Lowes is laden with raw emotion and we must say, the track is a bit of a tear jerker.
Keep up the latets from Lowes here:
Booze…Real Ale (From an independent brewer)
These guys deliver the very best of Folk. Go on a journey with them and get lost in their world trhough their story-telling style lyrics. You won’t be able to resist moving your feet…maybe have that ale first!
Booze? An artisan cocktail or some variety.
Delivering a stunning set at Berlin Music Week in September (Nordic by Nature stage), the band have confirmed their first London show will be at the JAJAJA Club Night at The Lexington on October 30th.
Driven by a crashing rhythmic force and insistent synth-lines ‘Stones in the Water’s lyric draws you into an almost mythical, shadowy description of nature: mysterious stones in water and tongues that glow in the dark.
Scarlet Baxter looks to break through with August 18th single release
Review: The drink is mentioned throughout the song and its got a quite sad and slow tone to it that would blend nicely with the hard and heavy taste of a strong whiskey.
