RL Artist Of The Week: Greta Harlow

Greta Harlow is a London-based solo artist and songwriter from Finland. She released her debut EP ‘Who Am I’ in December 2019.  The title track grabbed our ears and made her this week’s ‘Artist Of The Week’.  With clear influences ranging from Muse to Kate Bush, her eclectic mix of styles are showcased within the title track.  There are musical twists and turns in every direction, from beautiful stacked vocal harmonies, to prog rock-esq guitar riffs.  There is never a dull moment!

C M Artist of the Week: Abi Farrell

Oxfordshire’s Abi Farrell was raised on a wide range of female-driven music from the likes of Aretha Franklin to Chaka Kahn and Eva Cassidy which led her to start writing her own songs at age 14, blending carefully crafted melodies with her rich, soulful vocals. Since moving to London in 2017, she’s graced the stages of such storied venues as Jazz Cafe, Spice of Life and The Camden Assembly.


 

Abi’s control and vibrato of her incredible vocal tone is truly stunning, so it’s no surprise she’s an in-demand independent artist, with lyrics that range from empowerment, independence and dealing with anxiety. Our favourite track is “Ivy”, taken from her recently released debut EP The Only Way I Learn, which you can check out below:

C M Artist of the Week: Promises Promises

Promises Promises are a truly underground band, eschewing traditional labels and management, preferring to oversee their careers in more DIY hands-on methods, producing all of their music in their bedrooms with only laptops and a handful of mics – which is music to our ears here at Unsigned!

This Bristol-based trio draws from a diverse pool of influence, which helps keep their electronic pop sound fresh and interesting. There’s a clear strain of dance/EDM running through the production, but the addition of guitars and live drums adds a layer of organic depth that adds dimension to the music, especially when the band performs live.


The band has just released a video for their newest single “Material” (which you can check out above), but we’re also in love with “Fired Up”, a full-on 4/4 freight train that has echoes of classic trance stabs and big booming kicks that will have you sweating off November’s chill in no time:

C M Artist of the Week: Bee Bakare

Nigeria-born British singer and songwriter Bee Bakare is on a mission, spreading the message of embracing your natural beauty, self-love and being yourself (something we can definitely get behind!). Gathering inspiration from legends like Whitney Houston, India Arie and Lauryn Hill, Bee’s music has received support from the likes of the BBC and Huffington Post and have even seen her preform at Buckingham Palace!


On top of her own musical endeavours, Bee uses her platform to support other women in music by way of her thriving ‘Soul Stripped Sessions’ events (yet another thing we can get behind!). This charismatic performer recently released “Fight for Love”, a follow-up to her single “10000”, which we’ve picked as our choice cut for you to check out below:

C M Artist of the Week: André, the Kid

André, the Kid is singer, songwriter and producer from London. A fantastically talented artist with a seemingly unstoppable work ethic, André has multiple mixtapes under his belt released by The Same Others, a label and music collective he leads. As the music landscape continues to shift, it’s making more and more sense for artists to band together to benefit from the power of community to amplify each other and from what we can tell, The Same Others are doing some really cool things!

 

Back to André – we were instantly grabbed by the clear level of care and detail that’s gone into his latest record The Dream. The lush, airy production carries the titular theme across the whole record but with enough stylistic switch ups to keep things interesting. The album largely feels like one fully-realised work rather than a collection of songs, similar to projects by Blood Orange and Frank Ocean. A lovely mixups of genres are at work from new R&B and pop sounds to some subtle shades of indie rock and bright electronica. A standout track for us is “Almost There”, a jubilant ‘stream of consciousness’ that we feel really sums up the vibe of the record. Keep you eyes on André, he’s definitely one to watch!
