Eden Iris – New Year’s Eve (Give Me Something Good) (Spotify)

“-New Year's Eve (Give Me Something Good)- обладает исцеляющими свойствами и создает ощущение по-настоящему тёплой музыки, в которую хочется окунуться с головой, словно в холодные воды океана. Мягкий вокал -Eden Iris- словно тёплое одеяло укроет вас даже в самую пасмурную погоду. ”

“New Year’s Eve (Give Me Something Good) is about a moment in a relationship when the stakes are high. There is tension and silent resentment building up, and the chorus (give me something good, tell me what you want to see) is the moment when the truth comes out and you can say what you really feel. The song is like a bittersweet plea to the one you love. - Eden

Mason Owens – Stoned in the Vallies (Spotify)

Following the success of his debut EP, ‘Off The Bat’, Liverpool alt-folk hero, Mason Owens will release ‘Stoned in the Vallies’ the first single from his hotly anticipated follow up EP, ‘Early Hours’, out now.

The track, along with the rest of the EP, is produced by Glaswegian electronic pioneer Hector Barbour, better known as Denis Sulta, who is renowned across the world for his electric DJ sets spanning house, techno, trance and disco.

The former Mixmag cover star and BBC Radio 1 Residency Broadcaster won DJ Mag’s Best of British DJ awards in 2019 and has turned his attention to the world of acoustic music for this exclusive side project after hearing Owens’ play ‘Stoned in the Vallies’ during a jam session.

Mason Owens, said: “I had a jam session a few months back with Hector and he said, ‘play me a track you haven’t got out yet’. I played him the tune and he related to it - he wanted to be part of it. He understood the sentiment and the meaning behind the song.”

Barbour, who has released music on influential labels such as Ninja Tune, Numbers and his own Sulta Selects and Silver Service imprints brings production techniques that he has nurtured through his impressive career to date.

“I never thought it would sound as good as it did, and a great deal of that is down to the quality of Hector’s production” Owens continues “Recording the track with him was a great experience.”

‘Stoned in the Vallies’ was penned by Mason two years ago, just after a short stint behind bars. It comes as no surprise that themes of freedom run through the lyrics.

“Stoned in the Vallies is about wanting to be free. It’s about the feeling of being caged up and not being able to remember what freedom feels like,” explains Mason.

“My head wasn't necessarily in a bad place at the time (though the spelling of ‘Vallies’ does give a nod to a well-known anti-depressant). I just wanted to get out there and get my life back on track.”

Taking a departure from his previous work, Owens draws on inspirations including John Martyn, Nick Drake and Tracy Chapman, to produce an altogether different sound.

Moving away from the raw sound of his debut EP, “Off The Bat”, Owens introduces intricate guitar work, sentimental lyricism and folk-infused melodies to his latest release, in what he is calling a “new phase” in his artistry.

“It’s closer to what I want to be doing; the music I naturally make,” Owens said. “The style is completely different. It's a lot more mellow, a lot more melancholy and more emotional.

“Off The Bat is a fast paced aggressive one to get you up in the morning, whereas this is made for chilling out to and make you think and reflect.

Owens burst onto Liverpool’s contemporary folk scene in 2020 with releases such as ‘Waiting For You’ and ‘Dock Road’.

He has racked up over 100,000 streams on Spotify alone and earned the attention of BBC Introducing Merseyside and fellow Scouser, Jamie Webster, who topped the Official Folk Album Chart last year.

Owens “could go down in folklore with some of his tunes”, Webster said.

He has since gone on to perform at some of Liverpool’s most popular venues, including the O2 Academy, Art Club Liverpool, Studio 2 Parr Street and Eventim Olympia as well as playing the hugely popular BOSS Night events at the first ever Everton Sessions for Everton Football Club.

As the country emerges from lockdown, Owens is preparing for a number of live shows in the coming months ahead of the release of ‘Early Hours’ including supporting Jamie Webster on several dates on his UK tour, playing the Main Stage at this year’s Liverpool Sound City Festival and his own headline show at the Arts Club, Liverpool with I Love Live Events.

Mark Kelly & The Peaceful Warriors – See You Again (Spotify)

“-See You Again- is a very beautiful and high-quality work. It has elegant Indie Folk acoustic melody and a pleasant rhythm section. All this emphasizes the overall sound quality. Also its warm Summer vocals create a stunning product worthy of your collection!”

“-See You Again- это очень красивое и качественное произведение. Элегантная акустическая мелодия, идеальный симбиоз indie folk и приятной ритм-секции. Всё это подчёркивает общее качество музыки, а тёплый, летний вокал создаёт потрясающее произведение достойное вашей коллекции!”

-Nagamag.com

Composed during the first lockdown of Spring 2020, « See You Again » examines the feeling of isolation and the difficulties of not being able to see each other in real. Not to touch, feel, kiss nor hug one another. A sense of helplessness reinforced by geographical distance: Mark Kelly is based in Vevey, Switzerland, and his mother lives in Manchester. For months, they could only talk virtually, whilst he usually went back to his native England regularly to see his relatives and friends. The song evokes all the small moments from daily life (saying hello to strangers on the street, drinking a coffee on a crowded terrace, etc.) that used to seem so mundane and natural, but that quickly got a different meaning when absent. A cry from the heart to express the need and joy of seeing other people again.

“See You Again” is the first single by the new project Mark Kelly & The Peaceful Warriors. It is taken from an album set for early 2022.

Josh Orange – I Feel Love (Spotify)

“Dimensional rhythm, smooth and hypnotic pace along with a beautiful melody and vocals acting as a drinking glass of good weathered wine. The expressive side of -I Feel Love- is its cinematic side. There is a persistent feeling that you are sitting on a chair on the other side of the screen, where the white string is running on a black canvas like in a film ending.”

“Размеренный ритм, ровный и гипнотический темп вместе с красивой мелодией и вокалом действуют как выпитый бокал хорошего выдержанного вина. Выразительная сторона музыки - I Feel Love- это её кинематографичная сторона. Возникает стойкое чувство, что ты сидишь на кресле по ту сторону экрана, где на чёрном полотне бежит белая строка только что завершившегося фильма.”

-Nagamag.com

I Feel Love is the fourth single taken from Josh Orange’s album “Midnight Lights”, as Burke explains the song……’It’s a dedication, a way of paying homage to the sheer beauty of the album “Rrakala” and the impact it had on me personally & spiritually when I first heard it.’

The First Nations artist from Elcho Island in far north Arnhem Land was born blind, yet by the age of 18 he was singing and playing in legendary band Yothu Yindi, he then went on to Co Found Saltwater band with the help of his great friend, producer and fellow musician Michael Hohnen. Worldwide fame finally came when he went solo and released four studio albums “Gurrumul” 2008, “Rrakala” 2011, “The Gospel Album” 2015 & posthumously “Djarimirri” 2018. Sadly, Dr. G Yunupingu passed away at age 46 in 2017. He sang in his native Yolnu tongue with a voice that is beyond comparison, it combined both beauty and pain in its purist form.

Scottish singer-songwriter Natalie Clark, who has reaped plaudits from Virgin’s Richard Branson and BBC Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw was selected as a Mercedes Benz KTLA "Artist to Watch” after moving to the US. Natalie was featured in the Mercedes Benz commercial campaign which also included performances at the famous Roxy on Sunset, and The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. She was handpicked to open for the Grammy award winning Indigo Girls tour and has been recording in L.A when not busy touring the US. Natalie received acclaim from multi-platinum artists such as Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton when she appeared on NBC’s The Voice, who praised her voice as ‘cool and powerful’ and ‘incredible’.

Since moving to the States, Natalie has opened festivals, toured the country, and was recently named a ‘Hot 100 Live Artist’ in Music Connection Magazine. She is also an official JH Audio featured artist. Her recently released Livewire E.P has already received considerable attention in the sync licensing world, with tracks being featured in several Netflix shows and an international commercial campaign.

After giving up her teaching career in Scotland to pursue her dream of writing and playing music, the rising indie-pop artist made headlines in the U.K. when Richard Branson invited her to sing on-stage at a BBC Radio 1 Academy session in Glasgow. Natalie accepted his impromptu challenge, and sang 'Weakness', from her debut EP. It prompted Branson to proclaim: “That was absolutely and utterly stunning – no backing band, no musicians, no forewarning.” He later called her “inspiring”. Grimshaw, who was hosting the BBC Radio 1 Academy event, played ‘Weakness’ and further sang Natalie's praises on his BBC Radio 1 show the following day. Branson has since written several articles about Natalie, including a recent commentary on her record release on virgin.com
