All The Queen`s Horses – Raised By Wolves (Video)

“This song will stay with you forever, even if one day will be lost in your playlist, -Raised By Wolves- remind that myself suddenly burst into life. Dark energy waves of mainstream rock music.”

“Эта песня останется с вами навсегда, даже если однажды она потеряется в вашем плейлисте, -Raised By Wolves- напомнит о себе внезапно ворвавшись в вашу жизнь. Тёмные энергетические волны мейнстрима рок музыки.”

Artist shared few words with us behind the inspiration of this song:

“I tried to colour in a scenario of someone who has been constantly let down. They can usually just swallow it and are resilient but on this occasion something changed and they’re not accepting it and they go very dark and no matter where they go their baggage comes with them.” All The Queen’s Horses

About:

All The Queen’s Horses is a dark indie project by Cork artist Sean William Murphy. A signature blitz of sadness, darkness and poetry esque lyrics to a backdrop of piano, cello and some Joy Division synths. All The Queen’s Horses recently signed and teamed up with Echoism and Motor Music to release the new upcoming album, ‘The Dark Below & The Isle of Dogs’. The poetry of Leonard Cohen, the madness of Tom Waits and the intensity of Joy Division with subtle hints of Bright Eyes and Damien Rice. A Hieronymus Bosch hellscape transmuted to music, but there’s more, like Freidrich Neitze taking a day off to pick flowers, making sure he wasn’t followed. All The Queen’s Horses’ gothic folktronica evokes a desperate and beautiful darkness, a world we can escape to, where our fears and desires intertwine like rope around the subject of an Araki photograph. A very unique, out of box experience for those that enjoy different takes on the singer songwriter genre. After a year of global turmoil singer-songwriter Sean Murphy, has channeled this swirling darkness into a hauntingly beautiful album: ‘The Dark Below & The Isle of Dogs’. Originally from Cork, Ireland, living in Dublin and having spent the last 12 months in London, Sean Murphy has seen this last disastrous year through the lens of an artist. Working under the moniker ‘ALL THE QUEEN`S HORSES’, Murphy has crafted a raw, guttural and emotive response to what he has observed as a darkness bleeding across the land and in to all of our lives. A twisted narrative is weaved in folktronica-rock; a patchwork of poetry, cello, synths and mournful pianos. A kind of warped, contemporary tapestry, the story of 2020 unfolds in low light and fun-house mirrors.

Arkson – Victory (Video)

“Your favourite guitar chords, piano keys and powerful drums form the sound of “Victory”. Energetic, intense and uplifting composition followed by the expressive singing of Arkson. That progression and very sophisticated transition techniques also reveal a big talent.”

-Nagamag.com

David Park, leader of the Toronto, Canada-based indie-rock band Arkson, is keenly equipped to capture the kinetic energy of now. He is a classical and jazz trained composer with an education in film composition, his diverse background enables him to honor many rich heritages while bursting through temporal and genre boundaries. Fittingly, his upcoming series of singles are eclectically standalone.

www.facebook.com/arksonmusic

“I prefer to think that each is song is its own unique moment, and I aim to make them feel different. I like the idea of not looking back and just pushing ahead with constant fresh inspiration,” David notes.

Arkson’s dynamic musicality evokes artists such as Arcade Fire, Arkells, and Imagine Dragons. Arkson songs are ambitiously arranged and densely layered with textures and musical motifs, yet the tracks also brim with unforgettable hooks. David self-produces the music, and handles performing most of the instruments on all the tracks.

instagram.com/arksonmusic

David formed Arkson in 2015 when he was still in high school and, since then, Arkson has released 3 EPs, 2 singles, and performed at some Toronto’s most prestigious small venues, including the Horseshoe Tavern and the Monarch Tavern. Arkson was set to be travelling to Portugal in the summer of 2020 as ambassadors for the Bracara Cup in Braga, as they were recently asked to write and perform the inaugural tournament anthem for July 2020. Unfortunately, the tournament has been postponed due to COVID-19.

David’s lyrics seek to frame the divide between past and present, and to capture the moments he experiences. This thematic through line may have something to do with this family, who moved around often as he was growing up. “It gave me a perspective that I don’t think you get when you are stationary. Permanent things felt temporary for me. I always had to make new friends, and I had a feeling like I didn’t belong anywhere but could also fit in everywhere,” he shares.

The single, Victory, was written to be the anthem song for Lank FC and the Bracara Cup in Portugal for the summer of 2020. The song is impactfully arranged, building from ethereal indie rock to emotive anthemics before climaxing with opulent orchestral final chorus. “It is meant to be an intense, energetic pump-up song which captures the spirit of sport—pushing as hard as you can towards the goal, never giving up, and never stopping,” David says. Its words viscerally capture the quest for excellence. Key lyrics include: Shooting high, shooting low/Running fast, thinking slow/We’re fighting till the end, and we’ll do it all again/If I fall before the goal, you’ll see me crawling for it all, And we’ll do it all again.

Colour Tongues – Wasted (Spotify)

“The song -Wasted- contains a balanced tempo, pleasant bass and one tone vocal echo quartet -Colour Tongues-. Sparkling blister base, warm chillwave synthesizers and indie rock atmosphere.”

“Песня -Wasted- содержит в себе размеренный темп, приятный бас и одинокое вокальное эхо квартета -Colour Tongues-. Прочная блюзовая основа, тёплые синтезаторы chillwave и атмосфера инди-рока.”

-Nagamag.com

“Wasted” is the first track from our upcoming debut LP Midnight Island. Think of “Wasted” as an electric dream… flowing through you with a sense of hope, warmth, and belonging.

Produced in collaboration with the brilliant Matt di Pomponio, who will burst into the room and shout something like “Ok! Here’s what we are going to do: James is going to wrap a frayed patch cable around an old telephone, face north, and bite a pretzel into a microphone!” And yes...that is buried in the track somewhere.

Each of us has our own story of living through a powerful, but toxic relationship. The moment you realize that you deserve better, you reclaim your agency and the whole world opens up again—like when you were a child or a teenager discovering things for the first time. Once you know it, you can’t turn back.

What’s next is anyone’s guess, but for now life is an adventure again— and it’s all yours. Embodied in the lyric “Finding the sun means you need to leave home”, this track takes you on a trip of romantic nostalgia, forcing you to look deep and look ahead -- to find your own sun, wherever that might take you.

We’ll see you on the journey

Jenny Kern – Coming Back For Me (Spotify)

“Coming Back For Me hit our playlist as soon as we heard it. Jenny Kern is one of those performers whose songs are remembered once and for all. If you have a place for beauty in your heart, then this single will take its modest corner there.”

“Coming Back For Me попал в наш плейлист сразу же, как только мы услышали его. Jenny Kern из тех исполнителей, чьи песни запоминаются раз и навсегда. Если в вашем сердце есть место для красоты, то данный сингл займёт там свой скромный уголок.”

-Nagamag.com

"Coming Back For Me" is a song about solitude. It's about being alone and learning to be okay with it. Especially during this time, with everything going on in the world. There's a tension between the inner self and the outer world. How we learn to deal with our emotions, our experiences and our pain. It's a process and this song helps guide people through it especially with the build of the song.

Skinny Dyck // Dreamin’ (OFFICIAL VIDEO) (Video)

“Never give up on the way to your seemingly impossible dreams. Regardless of the cold wind and chilly rain, remember that on the way to the event horizon, you will be rewarded. Thank you Skinny Dyck for remind us this, we shall keep dreaming until we make true most of our dreams! ”

“Никогда не сдавайся на пути к своим, казалось бы, несбыточным мечтам. Каким бы не был холодный ветер и обжигающий прохладой дождь, помни, что по пути к горизонту событий тебя ждёт вознаграждение.”

-Nagamag.com

An earworm loving driving song that leans on a twangy Duane Eddy like hook and takes advantage of indie rock sensibilities.

skinnydyck.bandcamp.com/

A discerning purveyor of hot twang and battered heart honky tonk, Skinny Dyck is equal parts revivalist and visionary. “I love Haggard” remarks Skin; both elbows on some hotel bar in Alberta. An apprentice of the pedal steel guitar and an inventive penman of song, the obvious country music influences don’t serve to demystify his talents. The debut full length LP “Get To Know Lonesome” sets the bar for lank, loser country that stays honest to its guts

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Robert Connely Farr:
americana, southern rock, indie rock, contemporary blues, country blues, juke joint blues


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Robert Connely Farr:
I studied architecture at Auburn University, spending a few years at the nonprofit student run design build Rural Studio working on the Musicman House and the Hale Country Animal Shelter. Since 2017, I've been mentored in the Bentonia Style of the Delta Blues by Jimmy “Duck” Holmes. I grew up in Bolton, Mississippi, a small town just south of the Delta where Charley Patton and Sam Chatmon are from. I released "Dirty South Blues" in 2019 - then I got cancer and had to have an emergency surgery, during which time me and the boys had a few sessions in Vancouver at Hipposonic Studios (Little Mountain Studio's for you music novices - some of my favorite rock and roll albums were recorded there!) to lay down "Country Supper". This year we also release "Gasoline" (B-Sides & Rarities) & "Live In EastVan"


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Robert Connely Farr:
yeah - I grew up listening to rock n roll - I had every Kiss album, GNR, Ratt, Crue, ACDC - I loved it all. Music just hit a spot in me that I can't really explain. It was personal, mine - no-one could tell me what to like - in fact I couldn't help what I liked - that was part of the excitement & it still is! Anyway, I remember being around 12, out in the country in the house where my Papaw grew up north of Bolton - making a blood pact in writing (that we still have) with my little brother & cousin that as soon as we all got old enough, we were heading to Los Angeles to being in a band. I guess I can't help but wonder of on a fundamental level this started it all - you know, that idea of putting the energy out there to make something happen...
