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.

J.W Paris Excite Us With “Rapture”

J.W Paris Excite Us With “Rapture”

London based Rockers J.W Paris have debuted a DIY video for their single “Rapture” which previews an insight into their chaotic Rock ‘n’ Roll life. The threesome have been gigging in and around London for some time now building a dedicated fan base, with the release of “Rapture” it creates an excitement and core to their rich rock sound.

The video is extremely DIY, but not lacking talent or quality; it in fact adds to the meaning of J.W Paris and that these guys are cool, chaotic and extremely hard working. Constantly in the studio working on new material, gigging in London building their repertoire and fan base and of course developing their style musically and practically with new merch available.

With inspiration from Iggy Pop, The Dandy Warhols and The White Stripes; J.W Paris are the British Rock band that is currently missing from the young rockers ears. Raw, imaginative and ballsy, these guys have brought back the term Rock ‘n’ Roll, don’t believe me? Then catch them live! Daring duo singers Daniel Collins and Aaron Forde have an amazing chemistry that inspires a bromance, nonetheless hot on the eyes for that Rock star look. Not to mention, Drummer Josh Cronin’s impeccable talent really shines in “Rapture” making it your new Rock hit to sing in the streets.

Catch them live 21st April @ Underbelly, Hoxton Sq.

Choose Wisely Debut Single “This Love”

Choose Wisely Debut Single “This Love”

Choose Wisely is an independent Singer Songwriter from London whose debut single “This Love” is set for release TODAY! Writing, recording and performing Indie Rock all by himself, it’s easy to say Choose Wisely is multi-talented but what does the single say about him.

Initially, those first few chords playing I thought I was listening to Blink 182 “What’s my age again?” then it takes a sharp turn to Singer Songwriter feels and Ed Sheeran automatically comes to mind. “This Love” is a great song and is easily likeable and catchy, but lacks imagination. Choose Wisely is sure to create a great following and as the song goes on it is easy to identify there is talent and a journey, but still remains average and same old to what’s already out there. Nonetheless, a great song and I look forward to more of Choose Wisely’s work…
