New Music: Connah Evans-Labels EP

2014-04-24 16.51.18Last year, on our trip to North Wales, we discovered Connah Evans, a young singer-songwriter coming from North Wales. While studying at Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, he wrote a first E.P which is now available since February 1st and available through his website ( and Itunes.

Starting off with the melodical and romantic track, Another Chance, we go through a sensitive and addictive lyrical universe. It’s followed up by  No Sense is still in the same vibes though more in an indie pop-ish way. It makes us think immediately of the likes of Doves or Elbow. Then we are entering in a sadder mood with the poignant and emotive Labels to continue in some more rockin’ vibes with You Know.

Finally, to get out of the coldness of the winter, we can hear at the end of the EP, the refreshing and happy In The City that you can hear just below.


Connah Evans will be back at Focus Wales this year playing at Old No 7 Bar. Make sure to check this out!

Ones to watch: January 19th 2014

2014-08-06 14.40.57Hello all!

New year, new stuff…here’s what was brought to our attention in the last weeks that worths a listen…

Orient Machine-Hector
This is the third official track for Wrexham’s outfit. Loud guitars, distortion and great rock vibes! We definitely can’t wait for a full album:-)

Django Django-First Light
Refreshing electronica from the Scottish, now London-based outfit. This is the first tune from their forthcoming and well-awaited second album


Speaking of electronica, let’s get back to the 80s with these catchy retro synth vibes! You’ll have the chorus stuck in your head all day and all night long.


Brand new single from the Manchester band. Grungy rock with staccato rythms reminiscing of Foo Fighters, a little bit like Muse as well, massive sound. New EP coming up soon

Seazoo-Panda Pains
Last act of the week is Seazoo who delivers a brand new single this week called Panda Pains on London’s Label Fandango. Punkish pop, if you like nice melodies like their Welsh compatriots Los Campesinos.

Party Time!
