Kings favorite BANNERS who we covered before just released a new EP, Empires on the Fire. I wouldn’t be surprised if the track Someone To You found its way on top of the music charts. It’s been out for a while, but still could be a huge hit with its big chorus and powerful vocals. The Beatles and Arcade Fire comes to mind.
The UK indie artist quickly made a name for himself with his self-titled debut EP and has accumulated over 60 million streams on Spotify. BANNERS recently toured with Milky Chance and played Jimmy Kimmel Live! His latest EP came out on Island Records.
Mo Brandis releases his debut EP ‘Undercover’. The latest get-on-the-dance-floor single Red Lights is definitely a stand out of the 4 song EP.
Having worked with some of the writers and producers behind Adele, James Morrison and Joss Stone, the London based singer-songwriter draws influences from the likes of Justin Timberlake and MNEK.
Mo says: “I wrote ‘Red Lights’ as a feel-good tune and morning boost for anyone who needs it. I know I do on most days! It’s about breaking out of your mind, pursuing your dreams and not letting anything or anyone stop you. I’m always really inspired by stories of people going against all odds – because they had their own vision and just kept going.”
She first came on the scene, gaining the attention of gnash, after posting a cover of one of his songs on Soundcloud. O’Brien sent a voice note of her original song, “hate u, love u” and gnash invited her to record the song with him in LA which resulted in a smash HIT. Additionally, she was nominated for an iHeartRadio Music Award for Best Solo Breakout.
Kings favorite Shannon LaBrie and Kenny Childers release a new EP which is part of a new project called Forevermore. Shannon takes a slight turn in music style on the new offering but her signature sound is still present. The new project brings to mind the early days of Jackson Brown with a tinge of 90’s. LaBrie says, “we are both pretty emotionally dark but, for some reason, when we play music together, it feels happy. I guess two wrongs make a right?” The album feels free, smooth and breezy, like one would feel at the beginning of fall. The kind of music you can play anytime/anywhere.” Check out the track self titled track.
Young Creatures release the atmospheric Slow (Part II). The Los Angeles based trio brilliantly combine shoegaze, rock, indie, and pop. Their first 2014 full length Fear All The Things grabbed the attention of several tastemaker blogs securing them a residency at the Silverlake Lounge. You can find the band gigging around in LA’s venues including The Bootleg, The Echo, and Satellite. The latest track comes off their forthcoming album “The Future Is Finally Now” out on Nomad Eel Records.
