Crowned In Chains

Release Date

We are a genre-switching, genre-fusing alt rock band that uses music as a tool for expression and storytelling. Our music dives into the darkness we try to hide and brings it to light through vulnerable lyricism, precise use of genre/instrumentation, and through a fictional story being told beneath the surface of the lyrics. We believe there is always light, even in the midst of overwhelming darkness, and our music broadcasts that light to everyone who will listen.

Ragsy

Release Date

This is the eagerly-awaited first offering from Ragsy’s forthcoming album ‘One More For The Road’ Volume 1; recorded at Northhouse Studios and co-produced with friend and producer Chris Peet. Speaking about their friendship, both professionally and personally, Ragsy said: “I can chat with Chris about the stories behind the songs, the mood, the feel, and then somehow the sound effortlessly develops from there on.

 

“He’s a great producer, a ‘Musical Magician’ as I like to call him - a very talented man. We’ve worked together for a long time now and achieved a lot along the way.

 

“The album itself has been a long time coming, with a delay in its release in early 2020 due to the effects that the COVID-19 pandemic continue to have on the world, as well as the music industry.

 

“The new single ‘The First Time’ has been described as upbeat, moody and passionate. A song wrote about those beautiful first things that we all go through when we meet that special person - you know ‘The One’. From that moment of setting eyes on each other, to holding hands, and then that first kiss. The journey begins, pinching ourselves every day, hoping this feeling never goes away, remains the same and lasts forever. A song I’m sure we can all relate to.”

 

The artwork for the single as well as the album was created by Ragsy’s partner Hannah Day. Ragsy said “Hannah has been a huge support with my music career. Having to constantly listen to the tracks as they develop, as well as my concerns. But when it come to the artwork, we kind of thrashed out the ideas, then Hannah has just a great ‘lets go get it done attitude’ with natural ability to capture the imagery for the music”.

 

‘The First Time’ was released on the 19.02.2021 and is now available to stream and download from all major online distribution sites. The Song also has an animated lyric video to support its release which is available on youtube.

The New America

Release Date

HONG KONG FREE PRESS

"We believe this is the last stand for our future and freedom," Protester, 22 Dressed in black and facing unflinching violence, they’re trying not to become the first fence to fall.

It’s a rare thing to be presented with a clear example of right vs wrong. If there is one stand out example of our troubled times, it is the crackdown on Hong Kong. Hong Kong Free Press is a call to recognise those who are fighting the good fight and to acknowledge our own failures to do the same.

When the song was written in the summer of 2019, everyone was watching the one million people demonstrating on behalf of democracy. Since then we’ve turned our heads to our own problems, finding out the threat was much closer to home than we thought. If nothing else, Hong Kong Free Press reminds us to always keep our eyes and ears open and to act decisively when we can.

OUT MARCH 26TH

 

 

ABOUT THE NEW AMERICA

The New America is hivemind of scuzzy heartfelt noise rock based in Bristol, UK with a sound that’s equidistant from Interpol, Mission of Burma, and Shame as the bee flies; The New America will pollinate your ears with an honest reflection of how we see the world and psyched out fuzz tunes.

The New America are the soundtrack to the Colony Collapse Disorder the world is experiencing. We’ve been compared to everything from the sound of a blender, to Gang of Four (quite the compliment), to the Foo Fighters (not a compliment). Since hatching as musical larvae in October 2018, the band has had the pleasure of working with excellent members of the UK music scene like Football FC, Dead Naked Hippies, Straight Girl, and the wonderful people at Mighty Atom Smasher Records.

We don’t have a mission and we don’t know what we’re doing, but through noise, honey, and sharp hooks we're becoming better people and want you to be part of it.

Kestrel Palace

Release Date

Manchester has always been a hotbed of musical talent. From the clattering industrial post-punk of Joy Division and The Fall in the 70s to the baggy hedonism of The Roses or The Mondays a decade later. From there right through the aspirational hedonism of Oasis landing at the musical melting pot that is modern day Manchester’s music scene.

 

The latest upstart vying for a spot in the city’s musical legacy is Kestrel Palace, who, tired with the frustrations and compromises that come with being in bands, has opted to strike out solo. Harbouring both swagger and a sense of self-sufficiency in equal measure, the 18 year old draws from a wealth of Manchester’s musical history, while providing it with a distinctly contemporary twist.

 

His latest single, and indeed his debut, ‘Get Up!’ couldn’t have come at a more fitting time. Two and a half minutes of clattering optimistic indie rock, it’s described by Kestrel Palace as being “about trying to make the most of your life; about making the best of a bad situation. I think that’s something people can heavily relate to currently.”

 

And well they might. 2020 was an unprecedented year, one we’d all rather forget about. But with a glimmer of hope on the horizon, and with tracks like ‘Get Up!’, stuff will only get easier.

Jacko Hooper

Release Date

This Was The Earth was written and recorded from Jacko’s bedroom with the help from life long friend and Producer, Josh Trinnaman (Whose mixing credits include Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, RY X and his own Brighton-based IDM/Jazz/Electronic outfit Luo).

 

Recorded off the back of multiple single releases throughout 2020 and a 4-track EP released with fellow musicians and friends Bess Atwell, George Ogilvie & Oktoba the year previous, This Was The Earth tells a story of the chaos that has been so many of our lives over the last 12 months but more so the story of Jacko’s own battles with his mental health which had recently taken a turn for the worse. The music video highlights this feeling of insanity and re-birth in the confidence and swagger of the performer whilst being decorated by characters and creatures that he cannot escape.

 

As ever Jacko’s own brutally honest experiences form the forward drive throughout, however the true purpose of his music isn’t ever his own story but the new ones created from it.

 

“I don’t feel that the original story of why I wrote the song is necessarily the most important thing, I think the fact people can listen to it and all of a sudden it becomes a different story with a totally different meaning is the best thing of all, to be able to connect to it people need it to be their story, not mine”.

 

With This Was The Earth showcasing true emotion and honesty, Jacko hopes that more stories are created for his very own

Ryab Arlo

Release Date

Though it goes without saying that by their very nature, the musical influence of cities such as Manchester can regularly be felt in contemporary bands decades down the line, cities with a little less renown in that field can be equally as influential. And while Birmingham may not be the first English city that comes to mind when we think of music, the likes Black Sabbath, The Beat and The Specials would probably disagree.

 

It’s these latter two especially which Birmingham-based singer-songwriter Ryan Arlo considers some of his biggest influences. “I grew up in a city with a diverse history in music” explains Arlo “One genre in particular attached to so many of my childhood memories is ska. I wanted to write a pop song influenced also by the music I heard when I was growing up.”

 

Debut single ‘My Last Fiasco’ is the product of that want. Three minutes of understated ska-flavoured alt-pop, it’s brooding and introspective, but not without an underlying edge of danger.

 

A lyrical powerhouse with an unapologetic talent for delivering exceptionally infectious music with dark undertones, Arlo has worked behind the scenes, writing for artists and producers since the age of seventeen. With the release of ‘My Last Fiasco’, Arlo makes his debut as a solo artist, a foray which is long overdue.

August Ubeda

Release Date

Hi! I'm August Ubeda, an artist from way up north in norway, next to the north pole. I grew up in the arctic but half my family is spanish, hence "Ubeda".

I didnt start with anything music related before i left my teens, and i've kinda gone through every aspect of it by now. I started as a dj/remixer, worked as a producer and songwriter for both Warner and Sony music in Norway, but now i've decided to release stuff for myself. At the moment i'm a "one man band", literally, I do everything my self - the promotional side is by far what i'm worst at, but im trying to change that! haha

 

I've just released a new song - Its a relaxed pop/indie/hiphop song about how it can be so easy to get stuck in a relationship, purely out of convenience. I thought you guys might enjoy it and maybe find a fit for it and me somewhere.

 

Anyway, hope all is well!

Best regards,

August Ubeda

The Kid and I

Release Date

‘Hey’ is the sophomore release from The Kid and I, featuring the first of many collaborations with Jennifer Glatzhofer. A marked departure from the sound of their debut single White Feather, Hey combines reverb laden guitars with choir like backing vocals to create a chilled and haunting arrangement. Written pre-Covid, its lyrics dealing with isolation and unrequited love resonate now more than ever, following the story of two individuals drawn to each other through the fear of being alone.

 

The Kid and I is a Hertfordshire based Alternative Indie Rock music project created by multi-instrumentalist Jacob Powell. Drawing from a wide range of influences from the likes of Biffy Clyro to Phoebe Bridgers to Tyler, The Creator, The Kid and I seeks to create a unique musical sound with no barriers to whatever musical direction they decide to go in.

 

‘Hey’ will be available 19/02/2021 on all major streaming platforms.
