Ace Harper comes from a dance background and so feels there is a live performance aspect to everything she does. This is no less the case with her writing, which combined with her quirky and colourful music videos, reminds us a great deal of Kate Bush and perhaps Siouxsie And The Banshees, or Toyah Wilcox. Ace’s new single, ‘Neon Heart’, is paired with a slick and colourful, psych and sensual video, which is the perfect match for her upbeat and catchy track.
Based in Hong Kong, Sean Hocking is the founder and owner of Metal Postcard Records. An avid listener of John Peel from the late 1970s onwards, Sean discovered, between the hours of 10pm and midnight, when Peel’s show was aired, the true breadth of music available. We asked Sean to narrow down his top 10 “can’t live without” tracks.
