Track of the Week – Lucy Rose

Lucy Rose

Lucy Rose

Lucy Rose has made a “comeback” after having disappeared for a while – but now she sounds better than ever (and yes, we did love her old stuff too). After a tour with Bombay Bicycle Club, the 25 year old singer-songwriter has now released her new singles Our Eyes and Like An Arrow from her upcoming album Work It Out.

We’re excited to introduce you to Like An Arrow, if you haven’t had the pleasure of listening to it yet. It goes down a treat and deserves the title track of the week!

Enjoy.

Track of the Week – Wild Beasts

The wonderful Wild beasts have deserved to be crowned for the Track of the Week and let’s be honest, there’s not much else to say. Apart from enjoy the song.
Delve into the depths of your heart when you listen to the Wild Beasts’ new song ‘Mecca’.

Wild Beasts – Mecca

Track of the Week – Nico & Vinz

Introducing – summery tunes by Nico & Vinz. Turn up the volume and enjoy the sunshine, or reminisce about your last beach holiday, …or even your last holiday love affair and tune into the somewhat more melancholic lyrics.

London Grammar at Brixton Academy, 3rd June 2014

London Grammar performed their so far largest headliner in the UK at Brixton Academy on June 3rd, 2014, and we were there! Supported by the vocal wonder Rhodes and the guitar-magician Nick Mulvey, this was certainly one of those gigs where the support acts make you feel like you get three for the price of one.

London Grammar caused me a sore jaw in the morning, as I just couldn’t keep my mouth shut, in awe of Hannah’s incredible voice. It’s normal to go to a gig with expectations, but the sheer fact that London Grammar sound even better live (and no doubt, they sound awesome on record) speaks volumes. Unfortunately my 10-second-long recordings on the phone don’t match reality and I therefore won’t post them up here.

After starting the show off with Hey Now, London Grammar went on to perform their album If You Wait in a less melancholic way than expected; indeed, the performance was very rhythmic and powerful.

Among big hitters like Strong, they also presented their new EP Sights.

 

Before the grand finale, Metal & Dust, London Grammar went on to play If You Wait, which Hannah got wrong on the piano, so they had to start all over again! It’s nice to see that human element within a successful artist; it’s nice to see that she cares enough to still get nervous!

London Grammar’s performance was like being taken away to another dimension. They even arranged an ensemble of strings to support their gig. Hannah’s voice, Dan on the guitar and Dot, playing every instrument on this planet, provided a harmonious and very memorable performance.

If you manage to grab a ticket for one of their shows – go for it! I would highly recommend to go and see them live.

 

 

And with regards to the amazing support acts…

Check out Rhodes‘ single Your Soul below.

 

The second support act was Nick Mulvey, who then joined London Grammar on stage to perform Metal & Dust. As a result, I just had to buy his album First Mind on vinyl. Check out this guitar magician’s song Cucurucu (- he basically is a magician, as every mortal human being would have lost a finger or two, or even an arm, trying to copy his picking skills on the guitar.)
