Forever Son Releases ‘Crumb Kitchen’

Forever Son is the project of Melbourne based singer-songwriter and guitarist Jack Robbins. Drawing inspiration from Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Daniel Rossen and Fleet Foxes, Forever Son’s sound is raw and free flowing with a splash of reverb.

Tracks imbue dreamy, coffee-fuelled mornings without the restraint of calculated thought. As for Forever Son’s rich, honey-soaked voice, The Band Review describes it as, “somewhere on a spectrum consisting of Jeff Buckley, Donovan and Devendra Banhart”.

Forever Son’s new Album “10 Months” is due for release in mid-2017.

SUiT Releases New Video for “1q84”

SUiT is a raw and vigorous act in its purest form. With four years of work behind the curtain it is finally time to gaze through the looking glass. The bands sound is vast, powerful, loud. It’s part crossover-pop, part enthralling folk and part blistering blues, a hard-edged trip of murky and fuzzy rock. These four musicians skillfully go berserk with their instrument of choice while always putting the good of the song ahead of showing off. They manufacture some absolutely hair-raising moments and sounds throughout their music, carefully embracing its delicate moments and then hitting you in the face with intense drive.

Their music has taken them on several tours through England, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands already, SUiT just finished off their debut album to be released by the end of 2017. With a vast load of unreleased material up their sleeves we’re sure in for more surprises within the coming months. But as for now, this music will make you want to get really high, have sex in a strangers car, set it on fire and run off into the woods laughing.

Gabriel Kelley Releases New Video & Single for “Shoreline”

887537_602755376529307_5107029176886898186_oGabriel Kelley has a unique music story to tell. It all begins in earnest when he as a professional songwriter in Nashville got tired of the industry behind it all. He moved to Guatemala and started a music school for children and then return to Nashville. At the same time, he kicked off a solo career as a singer-songwriter, appeared twice in the hit Swedish TV Show, Jill’s Veranda, wrote songs Jill Johnson and toured around Sweden. But the story of Gabriel Kelley actually has its beginnings somewhere else:

“The first time I left the United States was when I lived for a year myself in Gothenburg. I was 16 and it was an era of exploration and to grow up. During that year came Broder Daniel to be a big part of my life.”

It was especially Shoreline (Broder Daniel cover song) that got stuck.

“It’s a song that gave me comfort and courage ever since the first time I heard it. As I have expressed song in Sweden, I think it surprises people that I as an American feel to it. There are probably more things that I know and love with Sweden than people realize.”

The video was filmed at Gabriel Kelley Farm Six Boots Collective located in Tennessee. The little boy Reuben is our neighbor and I have always seen a light in his eyes and had a hunch that he would portray me as eight / nine year old perfectly. “We wanted to show a perspective of a more traditional American South childhood when I was growing up in the South, says Gabriel Kelley”.

B O K E H Releases New Videos

static1.squarespace.com.pngBorn in Cape Town, South Africa, raised in Wellington, New Zealand, Chloë Lewer grew up too shy to ever sing in front of anyone. Instead, she spent her childhood and university years working as an actress. At age 21, she met a filmmaker who persuaded her to start a ukulele busking adventure with him in Berlin, which quickly developed into a touring band called ‘Charity Children’ with two albums under their sleeves over five years.

As the relationship turned to friendship and the band went into hiatus, Chloë sought new artistic endeavours. Teaming up with Dutch writer/producer Wouter Rentema, also the drummer of ‘Charity Children’, the pair spent the Summer of 2016 locked inside various studios about the German capital and recording synths in a disused chapel in The Netherlands, developing what would become Chloë’s artistic alter-ego: B O K E H.

‘Don’t Leave The Fire’ feels like the diary no one was ever meant to find. The highs and lows of life and love lost are explored over a six track EP, in what is clearly a very personal musical letter. Intimate, sincere vocals, charged by an epic Electropop production with obvious 80s influences, expose B O K E H’s world and all the colourful, beautiful and painful spots of her imaginarie.

The lyrics, often sickly cute, ‘Did you know that you smile in your sleep? Sometimes I watch you like a total creep’, mostly painful, ‘My heart is a constant bruise’, end with poetic catharsis, ’There’ll be no more tears for yesterday’s years’.
