James Newman has today unveiled the stunning video for his UK Eurovision Song Contest 2020 entry ‘My Last Breath’. The track premiered on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2 this morning. Shot in Sněžka, a mountain on the border between Czech Republic and Poland, the video for ‘My Last Breath’ is directed by Charlie Lightening (Director of Liam Gallagher’s ‘As It Was’ Documentary) and features Dutch Athlete Wim ‘The IceMan’ Hoff, famous for creating the “Wim Hoff Method” of breathing, on an extreme journey of adversary through the mountains, echoed by James’ beautifully raw vocals.
‘Bridey Murphy’ is the latest EP by Jay Tonne – formerly the singer and songwriter of Black Forest Fire, from Austin – who writes, records, and performs as Tonne. Set for release March 13, the album is filled to the brim with Tom Petty like vocals and guitar – upbeat and heavy, yet at the same time melodic and pulling inspiration from the likes of Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, and early REM. Lead single, ‘Catalina’, calls up long hot summer days, sprawled on the beach – well it does that for me anyway.
London based band Night Flight are gearing up to release their new ‘White Noise’ EP (out March 27th via CRC Records). They’ve shared the latest taste of the new EP, in their new single ‘ATM’. Leaning a little closer towards the band’s indie rock influences, the track is a cynical examination of the sacrifices made whilst seeking acclaim and success.
