Smoky Knights’ New Single

Smoky Knights’ super catchy vibe ‘Sooner or Later’ is the brand new single off their 3rd EP and brings us the upbeat surf rock flavours to cheer this week:

Smoky Knights are an indie rock quartet based out of Los Angeles. In an attempt to achieve psychedelic feelings on their upcoming 3rd EP, the band’s sound has arrived somewhere between California surf rock, 50’s dinner club fluff, and 70’s drug binge fuzz. In 2012, Smoky Knights was formed as a trio by original members Andy Fischer-Price, Seth Sylvester, and Adam Brooks. They added guitarist Jesse Cross in the fall of 2014.

Tim De Graaw releases ‘Ivory’

After cutting his teeth in the LA music scene, singer/songwriter Tim De Graaw returns to London and announces his debut EP and opening track taken from it. Recorded at Westpoint Studios (UK) and mixed at the legendary Muscle Shoals (USA), ‘Ivory’ is the first track taken from the EP ‘Three Black Roses’ out now on all platforms including iTunes and Spotify.

This one man musical powerhouse has drawn comparisons with John Mayer and The Black Keys due to his knack of blending beautifully constructed vocal melodies with blues-tinged guitar licks. Describing his sound he says: “I wanted to combine my guitar blues influence with my own songwriting style. With lyrics that are truthful, honest and poetic about my fight with depression, struggles in music, and the pitfalls of love”.

‘Ivory’ showcases Tim’s trademark poetic vocals and emotive guitar style all wrapped up in rock solid production from Antwerp based producer Jamie Evans (Reigning Days, Wildwood Kin) who has also recently worked at both Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals and Arlen Studios, Austin. Jamie adds: “The energy and feel he puts into his music is undeniable. His new material is a sure indication that his music is destined to fill the hole in many a record collection.”

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa (half Dutch and raised in the UK), there is definitely an international flavour to Tim’s music. After making his mark on the LA music scene in recent years, Tim now resides back in his spiritual and musical home in London. It was that period in LA where he cut his teeth both as a session guitarist and songwriter, finding major sync success with several TV placements on the hit comedy show Modern Family. Tim has previously co- written with upcoming artists and songwriters such Sarah Walk (Still Frames), Adam Friedman, Charlie Puth, Yori Swart, Pam Sheyne and Rich Jacques. Describing writing on his travels, Tim says: “I am always writing with an honest intention, wherever I go, to capture the moment and time I’m in. It reminds me of who I am and keeps me grounded”.

New track off Oxford quartet Low Island

The track opens up with a rhythmic build up and engaging vocals that over loop to create a dreamy track.

Listen to ‘Recent’ on Soundcloud:

The band has been highly compared to Caribou and Radiohead… a balanced mix of electronics and conventional instruments to create chilled-out, hypnotic rhythms.

They’ve already made a strong intro with their two previous tracks, with Radio 1 airplay from Huw Stephens and Phill Taggart, Radio 6 plays by Tom Ravenscroft, Virgin Radio by Georgie Rogers, as well as adds to Spotify UK’s Fresh Finds and New Indie Mix playlists.

The band is made up of impressive group of talented musicians – Frontmen Carlos and Jamie have held residencies in The Warehouse in Leeds and DJd at festivals such as Glade and Gottowood.

Drummer Felix has toured with Snarky Puppy, and performed with the band’s found member and pianist Bill Laurance.

They’re already looking forward to releasing more music in March, setting up nicely for a new year!
