The music of lotusbliss, comprising brothers Seth, Josh, and Adam Gauton, from Canterbury, Kent, comes at you like a speeding train: unwavering, insistent, determinedly powerful. They grew up making music together, but formed as lotusbliss in 2018 while tossing around band names in a lighthearted conversation. Debut single, ‘Beautiful Monotone’, was released in November last year, while new single, ‘Carpet’, is the second and final release from their EP, ‘A Good Death Is A Beautiful Thing’.
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.
John Newman has been one of the major breakthrough artists in the UK in recent years, and with his distinctive voice, the writer and performer of some of the biggest anthems, including his three number one singles, ‘Feel The Love’, ‘Love Me Again’, and ‘Blame’. After a short hiatus, John is back with release of his brand new single, ‘Feelings’.
For those that know the music of Blair Jollands, one of it’s many qualities is the scale, the cinematic approach, the layering of intricacy that make up the whole. And so the chance to see Blair reproduce this in an intimate, stripped back gig is the chance of a lifetime but also holds a little fear. Will the music that feels so beautifully produced, so minutely detailed hold up to the broader brush strokes of something more acoustic?
