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!

C M Artist of the Week: Lords of Ruin

Lords of Ruin hail from the cold north of England, comprised of five seasoned veterans of the hard rock and metal scenes. After forming in 2017, the band has been taking their heavy, driving brand of hard rock to the masses across the UK. With unforgiving rapid-fire drum work, razor-sharp riffs and some very slick vocal production, Lords of Ruin are one to watch for rock and metal fans alike! Check out our choice cut, the latest single “In From The Cold” and get ready to throw those horns up \m/ :

C M Playlisted: Holly Abraham – “Landslide”

 

HA-Landslide01

“It’s about the beauty that can be found in starting again. When familiar things shift and change, it can often be perceived as a disaster, but “Landslide” reminds us that sometimes the greatest things in life come from the process of undoing, then rebuilding from the ruin. – Holly Abraham


Holly Abraham is an indie folk pop singer/songwriter originally from Wales, now based in Bristol. With deep, earnest lyrics with a misty and soulful voice, she creates captivating melodies set against delicately beautiful guitar work. Inspired by musicians such as Novo Amor and Of Monsters and Men, Abraham began working closely alongside Norwegian producer and lead singer of indie-pop band–and our very good mates!–Firewoodisland‘s Stian Vedoy. Together, they produced Abraham’s two current singles “Shore” and “Refined in Fire”, which saw support from BBC Introducing with host Richard Pritt declaring it an “enchanting debut single”.

We are completely thrilled and honoured to have the exclusive premiere of “Landslide”, the third single of Holly Abraham’s forthcoming debut EP. Husky vocals accompanied by electric guitar, piano and cello intertwined, electronic drums and big synths create an atmospheric track that combines both delicacy and grandeur.

Holly-Palms

A pulsing, climbing song that blurs the lines between ballad and anthem, it sees a signer completely in her element and surefooted in her sound. The track will be available on all streaming services tomorrow, so be sure to follow Holly on Twitter and Instagram and your streaming platform of choice to keep updated.

We recently had the good fortune of catching Holly performing live at London’s Slaughtered Lamb venue last Saturday, and she did not disappoint! Taking the stage with only her guitar to accompany her she completely owned the stage, working through some released material as well as teasing some exciting new music on the way.

C M Artist of the Week: Mirror Shot

Mirror Shot prides themselves with “putting the ‘guitar’ in ‘guitar music is dead’ since 2019. Based in London (though none of the members are actually from London), the band dishes out jangly, shimmery indie sounds with poppy hooks that will quickly find themselves stuck firmly in your head. Clearly a group with a dry wit, Mirror Shot says they’ve been descirbed as “amazing”, “loud” and “not good with eye contact”. While we can’t comment on that last bit (hey, we’re a bit shy too!), we can definitely concur they are amazing and their single “Crutch” deserves to be played loud!

C M Artist of the Week: Kiara Di Trana

Kiara Di Trana is our Artist of the Week! This South London-based singer and songwriter was originally born in Epsom, Surrey and points to having a very musical father exposing her to a big breadth of music from a young age. While her influences range from Zepplin, to QOTSA to Etta James (“to name a few!”), her sound is a collage of sorts, using loops and layering harmonies to create unique arrangements. Why not have a listen to “Message” below and get a taste for yourself?

C M Playlisted: Pavey Ark – “Cuckoo”

Hull-based alt-folk band Pavey Ark first landed on our radar back in July of 2108. Richer Unsigned had our own stage at the famous Cornbury Music Festival, who worked alongside us to curate a playlist of performers who went on to dazzle festival-goers with performances across a range of genres. Cornbury chose the band’s song “Leaf By Leaf” for the playlist.

Fast forward a little over a year and the band has just released their latest single “Cuckoo”, a warm folksy number that’s an ideal companion to have in your ears as the temperature starts to get a bit crisp:

And speaking of Cornbury Festival, in case you missed it you can check out the band performing this track recorded live by us from the fest!

C M Artist of the Week: Make Friends

Make Friends is a four piece from Bristol, who also just so happen to be this week’s Artist of the Week! This bombastic band laces bouncy indie-pop with infectious, danceable grooves which results in fun, punchy music that feels like it lives on tightrope (in the best way possible). After teasing a handful of singles, the band recently released their EP Hi, which fans of Bombay Bicycle Club and Foals will definitely not want to miss. Our favourite track is “Ellie” which is ready for your hungry ears below:

C M Artist of the Week: Madison

Madison is our Artist of the Week! This singer and songwriter hails from Liverpool, with a sound that walks a tightrope between then and now. Modern pop and R&B production gets a just a subtle dash of yesteryear, with a vaguely 50s/60s touch. This production suits Madison’s unique voice perfectly, as keen ears might hear echoes of both Lana Del Ray and Adele as she delivers lyrics about heartache and yearning. Our favourite track is “Midnight”, which you should definitely check out:

C M Unsigned Session: September

For the September instalment of our Unsigned Sessions, we were joined by two stellar acts: LVR and The King’s Parade!

 

 

First to the stage was LVR. Pronounced ‘lover’, Dan Evans has been working under this moniker for the past 2 years, taking a break here and there to write songs for names no one has heard of such as John Legend (!!!!), which has afforded him a bit more time to focus on his own stuff. With 3 singles in the pipes, and plans to take over a studio in Wales for the next 6 months, we expect to hear some pretty big things in the near future. Joined by his pal Lewis on guitar, LVR delivered a stripped-back and soulful set, with his powerhouse pipes bouncing off the walls! “The fact that you have a place for people’s music and a way to connect with fans is incredible”, said Dan of Unsigned’s work with artists. “Even if it turns into just 20 new fans, that’s 20 you didn’t have before and can lead to big things when it comes to touring.”

 

 

Rounding things off, we welcomed The King’s Parade to the Melomania stage. This London-based four piece–made up of Olly Corpe, Sam Rooney, Tom English, Chris Brent–have developed a style that combines classic Detroit blues with melodic, crossover pop since forming on a Hawaiian cruise liner in 2015. Following up on a couple EPs that Earmilk, Clash and Notion all loved, the band tells us their stepping into the hallowed halls of Abbey Roads to record their debut album! When we asked Olly his thoughts on what we do he said “It’s amazing! I think’s always reassuring for an artist to have a brand, a really good band, being there and saying ‘yeah, you’re doing a good thing’. Being unsigned, it can be hard to get that confidence sometimes.” The boys blew the roof off with their big bluesy sound and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for them!

As always, we want to extend a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who came through to support unsigned music, and of course to both bands for sharing their talents with us. See you next time!
