UK indie 4 piece Young Astronaut released a video for the new track Chasing El Dorado. Shot at the roller disco Rollerworld in Colchester, the video is reminiscent of the 90’s – pink roller skates, video games, and neon lights.

Formed by brothers Chris & Pete Boakes, the band has garnered support from BBC and have performed a wide variety of venues in London as well as Beijing, Chengdu and Hong Kong. Check it out!
19 year-old Callum Stewart first gained interest from a feature on music blog. From his single Parachute which accumulated over 500k+ plays on Spotify to supporting Seafret on their upcoming tour in May, the singer-songwriter has come a long way.
While Callum continues to solidify himself as a melancholic tune-writer, his latest offering The Dam was co-written with Jez Ashurst (Gabrielle Aplin, Lawson) and Emma Rohan (James Arthur, Little Mix). He just wrapped up a headline show at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters and has a load of dates in March, April, and May.
It’s been a long time for Lucky Boys Confusion but they give us a warm welcome with a return of a new track It’s After Midnight. The Chicago based rock act have made a name for themselves delivering signature filled upbeat-pop tracks while touring the world.

The band is currently finishing up an album Stormchasers with producer Johnny K (3 Doors Down) for an April 14th release. “We’re unshackled!” exclaims Fergus. “We have no industry folks checking-in with notes, we’ve had no time-constraints – it’s literally the four of us in a room together working on new songs for the last two years, and we’re so excited to start sharing what we’ve made with everyone. It’s going to be an amazing year.
