EMPIRE OF LIGHTS - Across The Sky


Across The Sky is the new single by psychedelic space rock band Empire of Lights from Wales. It's a fantastic modern indie rock track mixed with classic 70s psychedelic tones. The song is about life in outer space, and the pressure and wonderfulness of such a thing. 

Εverything in this song is played in a masterful way. The guitar, the drums, the bass, the vocals create a unique atmosphere that takes you on a long journey to the outer space.

From Wales, Empire of Lights are the leaders of the 2020s space rock revival scene, mixing the ethereal ambience of Pink Floyd with the searing guitar of Hendrix, and the thunderous drumming of Led Zeppelin. They formed in December 2018 and the members of the band are:

John Aziz - Guitar/Vocals/Production/Video/Mixing/Mastering,
Simon Eversfield - Bass/Keyboards/Production,
Eifion Davies -Drums/Production

Here is the music video of the track:

THE VIOLET STONES - Guinea Pig

 

The Violet Stones just released their new single Guinea Pig , from their upcoming 2nd album. It's an enjoyable grunge/alternative rock track with lots of lows and highs between the verse and chorus, influenced by bands like Nirvana, Incubus and Paramore.  

Lyrically is about religious hypocrisies and how people in power have other intentions in mind when teaching. It depicts how people can be used for another’s greed and personal gain at the expense of others. 

The Violet Stones are Sarah (Vocals & Rhythm Guitar), Neil (Bass & backing vocals) and Jarrod (Lead Guitar). They have been together since 2016 and played the Tattered N Torn festival in Ulladulla alongside bands such as The Dead Love. They have also opened forKiko Smokes (members from Birds of Tokoyo) & The Pits in Newcastle. 

The single was recorded in Sarah's home studio and was mixed and mastered by Benedikt Hain

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS - Healthcare Workers Rock!

 


Healthcare Workers Rock!,” an anthem written to provide support and appreciation for healthcare workers fighting COVID-19, just released on all major digital music platforms. Fans can also support the effort by visiting www.healthcareworkersrock.org.

The driving force behind the song is Ken Freirich, a songwriter and drummer who lives by a daily mantra of “making the world a better place.” Freirich is an active philanthropist who loves the convergence of music and the opportunity to help others. He felt a calling to write and produce a song that could fulfill an unmet need; a tribute and anthem for all of the frontline healthcare workers around the world who put their lives on the line each and every day to help others. “Healthcare Workers Rock!” released on Freirich’s record label, Better World Records, also home to his new band, Random Acts of Kindness. A portion of proceeds from both the song and merchandise sales will be donated to charities that benefit healthcare workers and people impacted by COVID-19. Moreover, Freirich will be also making personal donations to these charities as well.

“Working ‘round the clock, strong and courageous, never gonna stop,” part of the chorus belts out with lyrics that embody Freirich’s vision for the song. “I want to have the song played all over the world to give healthcare workers something to rally around as they continue to work through difficult days and nights,” says Freirich. He was inspired to write and produce the track after seeing medical professionals in desperate need of resources and watching colleagues’ family members pass away from COVID-19. From his position as CEO of Health Monitor Network, the largest patient education/engagement company in the United States, Freirich has a unique perspective on the plight of frontline healthcare workers while his passion for music provides a creative way to honor them. “The song’s pre-chorus lyrics, ‘This is what we do, day in and day out,’ are for the selfless healthcare workers who are out there working and giving everything they’ve got to their patients. I wanted to deliver an anthem for them that was empowering and uplifting.” The accompanying video, featuring healthcare workers from across the country along with people celebrating them, will premiere later this month. 


Healthcare Workers Rock!” is Freirich’s newest music / philanthropic initiative. For the past five years, he has also been a songwriter and drummer in a band called MedROCK, a 501c3 organization that “brings the world together through music and makes it a better place through philanthropy.” The band put on a benefit concert in Turks and Caicos to help buy instruments for a local school’s music education program and has partnered with and raised money for Teen Cancer America, founded by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. Freirich also played a song on drums with The Who at a charity benefit concert in Southern California last fall.

Better World Records LLC was started to release incredible music across numerous genres, while having a positive impact on the world. The company will use its artists and music to bring people together and will incorporate its strong philanthropic beliefs to projects and initiatives to do good.

SPIRITS REPUBLIC - On & Bound

 

Nashville-based Alt/Funk/Progressive Rock band, SpiritsRepublic, just released an amazing brand new single On and Bound. It's their third single of 2020 and represents the band's unique and diverse song writing. With this song you can expect the unexpected. Between the heavy slap bass that starts the song and the smooth reverb drenched vocals, just when you think you have gotten used to the sleek and alluring groove, here comes the explosion. 

The disclaimer at the start of the music video relays to viewers how, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the band had to act quickly in casting their music video. Spirits Republic drummer Perry Dornbush plays the bride-to-be and the video is centered around her journey with only one friend showing up for the party due to the virus. What happens next is anyone’s guess as the bachelorettes barrel down the streets of downtown Nashville.

Spirits Republic is known for its spontaneous, genre-fluid songwriting and “On and Bound” is certainly the next level for them. In a recent interview when the band members were asked what they want people to take from their music, they answered, “We hope our music will help listeners think outside the box and that people find excitement in the unexpected. It’s a reminder to never feel too comfortable as life will always give you some unexpected nonsense that in many cases will make you stronger if you tackle it head-on!” This is certainly represented with “On and Bound”.

The video is perfect pairing with the band's "Horrible TV" comedy channel which includes "South Park-esque" cutouts, skits with exploding heads, controversial memes, and more.

Band Members:

Russell Somer (lead vocals/guitar)
Perry Dornbush (drums)
Ricky DeMeo (bass)

THE CHRONICLES OF MANIMAL AND SAMARA - Deus Ex Machina

Deus Ex Machina is the third single of London based hard rock duo The Chronicles of Manimal and Samara.

Behemothic metal guitar and bass riffs, classical Persian Tar and colossal war drums are accompanied with ominous poetic passages and lamenting rhyming verse that are spoken and recited over the rhythmic beat. The lyrics tell the story of Oedipus Rex – an Ancient Greek tragedy written over two thousand years ago by Sophocles. It's about man’s perennial struggle between fate and free will. 

The Chronicles of Manimal and Samara are defining a new realm of sound where poetry and the spoken word meets electronic and rock.


The London based duo was formed in late 2019 by members Andrea Papi (Music composition, keyboard, electric bass, guitar) and Daphne Ang (Lyricist , vocals). Electric bass on this track is played by Sébastien Puech.

SHARDS OF LEO - Urgent

 

Urgent is the debut single of SHARDS OF LEO, an one man band which is the creation of british musician Louis Forsyth. Luis wrote, played, mixed and produced all the music in this work. Urgent consists of three songs discussing 3 different parts of raw humanity; mental health, sexual lust, and war/violence. 

Leo is about how depression and other mental health issues, can make you lose your sense of self, and how damaging being in that place can be not only to yourself, but your loved ones. Lady in black explores sex and sexuality. It is about the raw lust you feel, and how that isn't something that should be taboo and demonized, because it's part of humanity, and something we should enjoy and celebrate. Battleborn is the last track, and is about violence and war. While it absolutely does not promote the use of violence in itself, it is based on the history of humanity and how coming together can be used to overcome oppressors.

The music is a mix of hard rock guitar riffs inspired from Royal Blood, to Led Zeppelin, to Rage Against the Machine, with modern big beats, and lyrics and vocal melodies which are designed to cut through to what it means to be a human.

FYDSTAR - Scream

Scream is the new song from the North Wales rock duo FYDStar featuring the additional singing talents of vocal coach Kate Proudlove. This is an enjoyable piece of music with a sound that can be described as cosmic metal.

FYDStar are a new duo from North Wales/Merseyside, primarily on bass and drums with delusions of grandeur and an eye firmly on the cosmos. A genre bending mix of Muse, Torche, Soundgarden, Radiohead, Sludge Rock and Thunder Pop. 

Their first song in an earlier form when FYDStar was just Gareth, got local BBC radio play (Wales and Merseyside) and internet radio play in North Carolina (The Rise Guys), where he won a play off on their Brutally Honest Review feature. Previous song Bite the Rope is receiving widespread play on Pandora. FYDStar aim to gig in 2021.
