Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: The Goudies

Photography By: Aimee Joy Photography, www.aimeejoy.com
Our next Artist Of The Week is the stunning husband and wife folk duo, The Goudies aka Sam and Beth Goudie. As singers and songwriters they explore the relationship of love, faith, and the spaces in between — always ending in hope.

Listen to their latest EP, “When This Is Over” here:

At the start of 2021, whilst the UK was locked down, they started a weekly live stream (Tiny Show Tuesday) for their friends from their home, playing new songs and country covers — and finally decided to bring their solo projects together to form The Goudies.

Whilst The Goudies is a new project, Sam & Beth have both been well received as solo musicians. Individually they have both been featured as BBC Wales Artist of the week (Sam as Elephant & Soldier) and been played on BBC Introducing, BBC 6 Music, and local stations. They have also supported acclaimed artists such as Amy Wadge, Alfie Boe, and Jesca Hoop.

Their debut EP, “When This is Over|, was released 22nd July (so, brand new!). Recorded with just a single microphone in a room, the songs are an honest reflection on a time when everything was stripped away and we found out the things that matter.

Watch their music video for the lead single here:

What an absolute gem of a tune! Solid songwriting about what really matters. Their harmonies are some of the tightest and best suited voices we’ve heard in a long time. The fact that they can keep you engaged and captivated through the whole song with only two acoustic guitars and their voices, is a true testament to a well written song by talented musicians. We can’t wait to hear more from this duo, and will be following their journey, for sure.

Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: Katherine Aly

Our next Artist Of The Week is Katherine Aly! Aly is a avant-pop singer/songwriter based in Edinburgh. A blend of London Grammar, Björk and Florence and the Machine references, her genre-fluid, melody-driven tracks are an ethereal experimentation with lyrical elements and dreamy ambience; a narrative of subjectivity in singular and collective contexts.

Listen to her latest single, “Glow & Ignite” here:

About the track the artist says “Glow & Ignite might sound like a happy song but believe me when I tell you it’s not – it’s actually coming from a very dark place. Writing this upbeat song really helped me through struggle.”
Kathrine has a fantastic, soulful voice and controls it with full confidence. You can also hear something beautifully traditional in her melody choices, which might be down to being originally from Greece.

Watch to Aly’s stunning acoustic version of “butterflies” here:

If you’re interested in discovering a new, interesting artist in the same boat as Florence and the Machine and Imogen Heap, you are in for a treat with Katherine Aly.

Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: The People Versus

Say hello to our next Artist Of The Week, The People Versus! Haunting folk fairytales powered by sheer pop euphoria. Borrowing from a variety of genres and traditions, their combined voices and instrumental lines swoop, circle, and support the beguiling voice and personality of the lead singer Alice.

Listen to their latest single “Witch” here:

Each song is taut with feeling and longing, inspired by Greek myth and tales from Shakespeare. The resulting sound is “Dreamy… it just pulls you in.” says BBC introducing. We totally agree! Dreamy, catchy and intriguing. Their track “Witch” really makes you want to dance and sing a long. We can honestly say that this is an ear-worm that we can imagine being played on BBC 2 and 6 Music. Alice’s vocals are reminiscent of that of Norwegian Pop artist Aurora, with more nostalgic sensibilities.

Watch the live version of “Witch” here:

Formed in late 2019, they filled tents at Greenbelt and Lakefest and completed runs of small venues and festivals across the UK to enthusiastic audiences. The band have since secured bookings for 2021 including Cambridge Folk Festival, How The Light Gets In and rescheduled Campfire Show with The Nest Collective. So keep your eyes open for this exciting band!

Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: TEOSE

Artist Of The Week is TEOSE! With a style that combines Soccer Mommy’s 90s alternative musical packaging and Big Thief’s diartistic alt-folk lyrical storytelling, Glasgow-based 3 piece TEOSE produce a chimerical blend of New Wave, Dreampop and Grunge.

Listen to their latest double single, “Oh”, here:

Fronted by writer/producer Melissa Brisbane, TEOSE have been quietly making and self-releasing a series of DIY recordings while the world was on lockdown, eventually coming to the attention of UK independent record label Kaleidoscope (Callum Pitt, Grace Gillespie) at the beginning of 2021.

Their songwriting has a deceptively simple brilliance, layering fuzz-laden steady guitar riffs under joyous pop-inflected lead lines, all underpinning lyrics laced with both humour and heartache.

Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: The Pylons

Say hello to our Artist Of The Week, The Pylons, a London based alt indie quintet fusing the psychedelia of Tame Impala with Arcade Fire’s punchy pop-tinged anthology. It’s gloriously garnished with feel-good festival vibes, splashy distortion and vibrant synth work.

Listen to their latest single, ‘The Chase’ here:

The Pylons says about the single: “I think the only way to keep up with the game of life is to stop keeping up entirely. We made The Chase to spite the new world mediums and to remind everyone that you’ve got to be okay with just existing. The world has started to feel overly romanticised and skin deep to the point of being cosmetic, but living is a creative expression that this single pays homage to.“

Also watch their playful and clever music video for ‘Grumble’ here:

Their introspection-filled single, The Chase, is the first of three singles to fill your ears before the release of their debut EP ‘Thanks For Coming’ in the autumn. With a festival-sized sound and a lot on their heart, we expect The Pylons to have a bright future ahead! Keep your ears peeled for more music to come by following their social medias!

Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: Peploe

Our Artist Of The Week is highly unique! Peploe is a London based alt-pop duo that mixes genres such as EDM, indie rock, pop and neo soul. Their tracks ranges from pretentious grandeur to unromantic, homemade indie.

Lisen to their latest double single “Elephant Of Mine”:

Between the super tight polyrhythmic drums, district layered jazz inspired vocals, running bass lines and hectic arpeggiator synths hovers something really intriguing, nostalgic and new thinking all at the same time. Would we be wrong in classing this as playful, intelligent electro-jazz? Have a listen for your self. We dig it!

Speaking of playful. Check out their music video for “The Novice”:

After that bizarre yet fantastic journey, let’s introduce the duo! They are Swedish Arvid Rongedal and British Gabrielle Thomas. Rongedal grew up playing drums in local bands around Stockholm, singing and exploring different instruments, which lead to a discovery of music production. Thomas has a suburban London background and grew up surrounded by music, with roots resting in gospel and soul. She was writing and singing on a recreational level until 2018, when she decided to work in music professionally. The two met at a music university in London late 2018, and after dating for several months, they decided to write music together.

This duo is for sure one of those rare finds, that you jump into wholeheartedly and never come out again. You listen to all their songs, buy all their merchandise and go to all their shows because you just love their vibe as a whole.

Let’s jump into it together and buy all their music on bandcamp!
