Stefan Elefteriu drops other-worldly album ‘Quantum Gates’

Stefan Elefteriu’s latest album is a science fiction journey. Listening makes you feel like you’re wandering through a world unknown; a world which quivers with the melodic lines of outer space. The artist previously built his own synthesisers in Communist Russia, which likely led to his technical and classical skills in music being fused together in ‘Quantum Gates’. We can see through this album some truly astonishing musical understanding. Eleferiu masters the keyboard, violin, and a distinct musical narrative which gives the songs their other-worldy feel. Listen to ‘Quantum Gates’ below: Elements of classical, rock, and electronic all come together within this album. It’s perhaps not surprising with Elefteriu’s technical abilities, but his musical career breaches from working at the Romanian National Opera, which is definitely an unusual start for an electro-rock star. The most noticeable factor of this album is the commitment to a uniquely niche genre. Science fiction isn’..

Scottish Country Star Chris Andreucci releases ‘What Don’t Kill You’ EP despite 2020 setbacks

If you haven’t already heard the name Chris Andreucci, it’s definitely one you’ll be getting to know soon. With an appearance at the SSE Hydro Arena in Scotland, a record contract and plans to move to the revered heart of country music, Nashville (US), Chris had all the steps he needed to become Scotland’s next big country star until we were struck by the pandemic. Like many who have had to adapt their plans due to Covid-19, his appearance at the ‘Country 2 Country festival’ at the SSE Hydro and his opportunity to move were cruelly snatched away, leaving him wondering how he would still make it in the country world. However, Chris never lets setbacks stop his ambition, and he’s pushed on to release his long-awaited EP ‘What Don’t Kill You’. Chris has already had a country career that’s enough to make anyone jealous, having performed headline shows at Glasgow’s iconic venue King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and the Celtic Connections show at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. His new EP has been 12 mo..

8-years-old Elle releases Christmas single to support the homeless

The single, ‘It’s Christmas’, has been released after Elle decided to do more than just help the homeless in her hometown of Southampton and set her sights on the rest of the nation. She’s raising money for homeless charity Shelter, to not only widen awareness but get them some vital funds ready for the festive season. A percentage of all the funds from downloads and views of Elle’s music video (which you can watch below!) will go directly to the charity to help prevent homelessness in the lockdown and festive period. Almost every Sunday Elle goes out with her mum delivering sandwiches, cake and fruit to those sleeping rough on the streets. She sets an example which we should all follow, not just at Christmas but all year round. Elle said: “I just hope this song makes people think about homeless people this Christmas. It must be horrible to live on the streets and I just want to try and help them more if I can. Thank you to everyone who supports this fundraising campaign.” Shel..

87 and The Toys drop new EP ‘Japanesy If You Pleasey’ in classic DIY indie pop fashion

The seven tracks that make up ‘Japanesy If You Pleasey’ are a trigger which come together to portray the trio’s indie expertise and passion. Indie artists such as Violent Femmes, B-52s, Daniel Johnson and Neutral Milk Hotel are clear inspiration for the twists and turns of their style. But they also hold their own in retaining a quirky and fresh sound. The songs ask questions from everything regarding government, corona virus and even all-you-can-eat sushi restaurants and BoJack Horseman. Combined American and Japanese cultures are brought together in this DIY mash. Listen to the tracks below: The songs give a true personal feel, somehow also managing to epitomise coolness. For instance, ‘BoJack’, written after the band binge-watched the series throws out chirpy lyrics alongside gooey rhythms. Perhaps the cherry on top for fans of this band is their no-filter approach. They take a calm viewpoint on production techniques and commit to artist integrity throughout. Follow the ..
