London three piece with energy to burn, Penny Mob, are a band who feed off bands who’ve inspired them and the pure exuberance of youth. Likened to the greats of British Indie such as The Kinks, Oasis, Cast, The Clash, Arctic Monkeys, The Sex Pistols and more, they are very quickly winning fans in the music and entertainment industry.

 

When a band can count Amazing Radio tastemaker Jim Gellatly among their fans, then that’s a sign that they are onto a good thing. The momentum is only set to increase with the release of double A-side single ‘Mr Generation’ and ‘War on the Streets’.

 

There are further plans ahead to release an EP and singles in the spring and summer. In the meantime, the tracks below give a solid indication of the quality that will be on offer.

The band are no strangers to the oddness of the entertainment industry. Bassist Matt has toured as a technician with several bands including Pete Doherty, The Rifles, Circa Waves and more. In addition, vocalist Jamie Quinn has also made a name for himself as a TV actor, with big roles in a number of well received TV dramas and comedies.

However, all three members of the band consider music their first love, and the band came together from a mutual desire to shake things up for UK music.

 

They formed one day watching the Brit awards, realizing together that music needed a “new, real, honest rock n roll band with balls”. No one who was inspiring them. They had found inspiration in previous generations but there is little around at present. From this epiphany was born Penny Mob – a band with the spirit of punk, but the sound of raw indie.

 

Happy to play anywhere, including impromptu gigs with unsuspecting staff, Penny Mob are building quite the reputation. This new double A-side will go a long way to cementing it further.

 

‘Mr Generation’ and ‘War on the Streets’ are released on May 2nd.

Fresh new UK duo Dalimore are shooting ‘Higher’ with new single

New release unveiled on May 11th

A brand new duo from the North East of England, Dalimore are Dan Bishop and Nathan Brewis who formed as a duo late in 2014 having previously worked on separate musical projects. It hasn’t taken long for them to find their sound, with new single ‘Higher’ due for release on May 11th.

10947368_774945575926906_4701347353023807058_oWith comparisons to the likes of Kodaline, The Fray, The Script, Coldplay, Ben Howard and more, their tracks blend genres from indie, via soul, to pop-rock, taking in influences from their own individual backgrounds and mixing them to great effect.

You can hear the single ‘Higher’ on YouTube now, with a full official video due May 1st:

With the single recorded and ready for release, the pair are now working on ideas for their first EP, collecting together new tracks to continue on their journey to spread their music as far and wide as possible.

Their mission statement is to produce songs about making the most of life and working hard to be the best you can be – even when it seems easier to give up. It’s an admirable outlook, and one that has proven successful in the music industry in the past.

If there’s any justice, this level of determination will soon see Dalimore making their own mark on the music industry.

Debut single ‘Sorrow’ set to introduce new artist Adam, Hear The Sea

0024-2-1-a

Based in East London, Adam, Hear the Sea is the new music project and pseudonym for rising singer-songwriter and producer Adam Karayiannis. Of British-Cypriot descent and specialising in the thoughtful end of pop, his influences include the varied likes of Florence and The Machine, Sam Smith, Paloma Faith, Kate Bush, Morissey, Erasure and David Bowie.

Early demos showed great promise, earning excellent support from BBC6 Music and BBC London radio, and now the time has come for the release of his first official single, ‘Sorrow’.

As the name suggests, this is a song about allowing yourself to feel sad sometimes instead of running away from emotions. Adam believes it’s healthier to feel sadness fully and let the wave wash over you until it has passed, as laid out in the uplifting chorus. Far from being downbeat, it’s actually a song about hope, and features a fantastic gospel choir section too:

Trained in acting and performing arts  with renowned The Chicken Shed Theatre Company and with a degree in Music Production, Adam, Hear the Sea is a multi-faceted artist with plenty of strings to his creative bow. Having made credited appearances in huge TV shows, he is hoping that his new music will continue to propel him on his upward career trajectory. And with tracks like ‘Sorrow’ in his locker, it’s hard not to agree.

‘Sorrow’ will be available from June 15th
