Centre Excuse Debut New Video “Moon, Sky & Stars”

Centre Excuse Debut New Video “Moon, Sky & Stars”

Centre Excuse are back with a brand new single, video and a damn good makeover; it seems the short time off has proven successful for the band. More Glam Rock and heavy electronics and bass, Centre Excuse bring us “Moon, Sky & Stars”…

The video is extremely high quality and there’s nothing DIY about this band, a correlating theme of Red, White and Black the video is highly pleasing to the eyes and takes you on an epic journey. Opening with wide landscape shots, Centre Excuse open our minds ready to challenge and question. Heavily synth Pop with hints of Electro, Centre Excuse have matured immensely with lead singer Teddy Lewis’ vocals noticeably stronger, the band as a whole have chemistry that is shown highly when live (which of course you have to do, and not just for Lewis’ moves). As the song progresses it becomes heavier and the band reach full potential, the chorus is so catchy I found myself humming the tune when doing my grocery shopping!

Centre Excuse have a great history as friends which conveys their chemistry, Teddy Lewis and Alex Rush (Keyboardist) have been playing together on and off for over 7 years in different variances, which is pretty hard for the band to comprehend. But the CE line-up playing live now is with James, Sam, Alex and Teddy. Lewis states “We’ve been working together for about a year towards this point. We’re all old school friends that ended up somehow coming together in later years through circumstance and I love that part of it. Our team chemistry’s seriously good and I think our individual yet similar backgrounds help in that way”. This is fully shown in the new video for “Music, Sky & Stars” as it proves the commitment of the band and how hard they work together. The video is so impressive for an upcoming band and urge you all to watch now!

Average Sex Debut “We’re Done”

The Amazons Debut New Single “Junk Food Forever”

The Amazons Debut New Single “Junk Food Forever”

The Amazons, what can we say? Amazing!! Striking the nation with their first single “Black Magic”, an instant hit and attention grabbing piece of music you absolutely will not get sick of. Now The Amazons have produced a second single that is just as awesome and attention grabbing “Junk Food Forever”!

Formed in Reading, The Amazons are initially a Rock n Roll band that certainly look and sound the part, it’s easy to criticise a young and upcoming band who are a hit with a first single; take Blossoms for instance. But I urge you not to criticise The Amazons as they are filling a huge gap in the Rock n Roll genre and it’s what we need! Some say Rock n Roll is dead but these guys are re birthing it.

“Junk Food Forever” follows the band in a living room depicting people from normal lives struggling with day to day tasks and just saying “f**k it” in a somewhat twisted and dramatic manner but life just gets too tough sometimes. The Amazons have created a relateable message matching with a motivating and climatic song, how could you not love them?! With the release of “Black Magic” a heavy and hardcore piece of music that you just want to let loose to, “Junk Food Forever” follows this theme though slower and a little more Indie, nonethless The Amazons are the band we have been waiting for to bring back that Rock n Roll edge but obviously cool and  loveable at the same time.

Don Broco Debut New Single “Pretty”

Don Broco Debut New Single “Pretty”

English rockers Don Broco have released new single “Pretty” under some odd and twisted circumstances; leading fans to believe bassist Tom Doyle was set to be married. The bands Social Media platforms such as Snapchat and Instgram were flooded with wedding preparation videos featuring the guys in white suits and updates of the bands status as supporters of Tom’s wedding. Little did we know, Don Broco successfully fooled us with the wedding being the theme to the bands new video for new single “Pretty” which ain’t so pretty!

The video features Lead Singer Rob Damiani cutting Bassist Tom Doyle’s face and replacing it to trick wedding goers so Rob could in fact marry bride to be Sidney, obviously chaos is caused and the band steal each others identities in a graphic and gorey manner, Don Broco have certainly made a statement with this video.

The song itself “Pretty” is heavy, cool and an instant hit with social media blasting only love for it… it is indeed a banger. With their previous single “Everybody” which still remains one of my favourite songs ever; Don Broco are heavier, more rock and more grit! Approaching the rock scene just few years ago the band were heavily criticized for being “a boy band” and “too pop” for the Rock scene, but with recent singles it seems Don Broco are dominating the Rock genre.

New Single “Pretty” is featured on our Video of the week.
