New Music

Here’s some of the best new music around in my opinion, including Brit Critic Choice Jack Garratt’s new ‘Surprise Yourself’ that just premiered with the Independent in the past few hours.

RIP Viola Beach

unnamed

This is truly heartbreaking. The wonderfully promising UK indie band Viola Beach and their manager Craig Terry tragically lost their lives in Sweden this weekend. They were a band that I was genuinely excited about and looked to as an inspiration for some of our own acts. We are actively supporting a campaign to get their single ‘Swings & Waterslides’ to number one. If you wish you can too by following the links below.

This devastating loss has been felt throughout the industry. Kris, River, Tomas, Jack, Craig and the music that they made will not be forgotten.

RIP Viola Beach

Happy BTTF Day

back-to-the-future-2

Well, I was hardly going to let this momentous day pass by without posting something. Today is the day that Marty McFly and Doc Brown (and Jennifer) travelled to in the ‘future’ in the 1990 Back to the Future II film. Yes, we are without hoverboards and self-tieing shoelaces but don’t worry they’ll be with us soon. I know a guy who knows a guy. In the meantime, let’s enjoy some of the movie that got our imaginations running back in 1990.
