HEADPHONES ON WORLD OFF No6
This is where I showcase 3 top bands that you need to hear!
And this week there is a bit of a London theme with all the bands.
FIRST BAND UP IS
For those of you not familiar with THE MARBLES JACKSON here is a little run down on the band.
The Marbles Jackson is a 4 piece ‘Dreamy Shoegazy Slowcore(ish) Epic Woozy Alternative’ band based in Hackney, London. The band is made up of
Terry Kirkbride (voice, drums, guitars, percussion)
NaoKoko (guitars, backing voice, drums)
Young Simon Gwynne (keys, guitar)
Mikey Belfast Gibson (Bass)
With a few singles and an EP already released to massive critical acclaim from the likes of Guy Garvey and Jarvis Cocker.
Here is what they had to say about them,
“I fell in love with this as soon as I heard it and I think you WILL, too.“ – Guy Garvey (BBC 6Music)
“…. ahhhh, beautiful.” – Jarvis Cocker (BBC 6Music)
The band have recently released their debut album NOTES TO THE DUST
The first time I listened to the album I was instantly struck by the haunting vocals, harmonies and the layed back sounds that just mesmerise you and set your mind off drifting away from everything around you!
Take a listen here and just drift away!
The full album is available to download digitally at all good retailers, but if you love your vinyl, head over here and grab a copy……that is if they haven’t sold out.
Limited edition of 200 heavy weight 12″ vinyl are available from Rough Trade. http://www.roughtrade.com/albums/92358
SECOND BAND UP IS
Here is a run down on the band.
EMMA AND THE FRAGMENTS are a 4 piece Indie/rock/pop 1 girl and 3 boys band from East London they formed in 2012. The band is made up of Emma on lead vocals, Andy on guitar, Doug on bass and Jon and drums/percussion.
Recently they released a new song #HATER
Iv got to say this is one of my favourite songs at the moment! Its got all the sounds of a great Indie track but has echoes of a 60’s new wave track. Emma’s lyric’s are pure quality and the whole sound of the track just shouts out that this track deserves to be heard a hell of a lot more!
All of the bands songs are available to download for FREE off their Soundcloud page, I recommend you grab them while you can!
FINAL BAND UP IS
THE GLASS CHILDREN are a London based electronic music duo consisting of David Fairweather and Daniella Kleovoulou.
They produce a great synth sound inspired by 80’s synth bands but backed with the stunning and powerful vocals of Daniella and David.
The duo have recently released a new track WRAPPED IN GOLD
They have produced a stunning track, it has a dark and moody sound which is lifted by the outstanding vocals.
With the big up surge in the Synth sounding bands THE GLASS CHILDREN have got a sound that will give some of the established artists a bloody good run for their money!
