Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: RALFY

OK folks! Brace yourself for our next Artist Of The Week! Welcome to the bizarre world of RALFY. With only 2 singles out this far, this colourful alt-pop artist has captured our hearts and turned them into mashed potatoes! Super catchy, uptempo songs that makes you instantly want to swing around, are filled with lyrics that seem silly at first, but makes you sit left with the feeling of “are these songs actually profoundly deep? or has my brain turned into mushy peas?”

Watch his music video for his latest single, Peach, here:

We are really excited to find RALFY this early in the game, as we foresee that his playful songs and personally will grab onto TikTok’s algorithm and make him a sensations at some point very soon. The day that we see a collaboration between Yungblud and RALFY is going to be a great day!

Listen to his first single, Brainwashed, here:

If you’re falling for this fellow as much as we do, do us a favour and buy all his merchandise!

CAS My Classic Album: Dave Davies on ‘The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society’

Dave Davies from The Kinks takes a look back to the release of 1968’s The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society at Classic Album Sundays at The John Peel Centre For Creative Arts.

The Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society wasn’t initially a success upon its release, coming along at a time when Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland, Led Zeppelin’s debut, and the Rolling Stones’ Beggars Banquet were the flavours of the day.

Although praised by many critics, it was largely overlooked by the public. However, as years passed, it’s following grew until it become regarded as a masterpiece. For many it is now justly considered The Kinks’ most satisfying album: a creative highpoint matched only by the band’s landmark singles of the period.
