Not every musician, artist, and band is going to make it successfully. That’s a fact that we all have to accept. However, there are some who are fighting an uphill battle from the very moment they start. Here are the hurdles that might be working against you and what your options are when it comes to clearing them out of the way.
Danish trio Scarlet Pleasure formed in 2013 and are made up of childhood friends, Alexander Malone (on bass), Emil Goll (on vocals and guitar), and Joachim Dencker on drums. The trio share a passion for old school soul and American RnB, and blend it with a modern pop sound. Their latest single, ’24/7′, is out today, April 12.
Progressive metal/rock band Source formed in Boulder, Colorado, in 2013 and their music expresses perception, emotion, human adventures, and “the beauty of all that is”. Comprising Ben Gleason, Justin Mirarck, and Riley Selleck, their latest single, ‘Benjamin’, is loud and fierce, and tells the story of Benjamin, who fights against a world which tells him to conform while at the same time wanting him to be himself. It comes with a music video which skilfully slips between live action and animation.
Released on 1 February, ‘Stay In Your Lane’ is the latest single from Liverpool band Ukebox. Outwardly feel-good, ‘Stay In Your Lane’ carries with it a big message about staying true to yourself, and not being too influenced by social media supposed role models. ‘Stay In Your Lane’ is available to stream and download on all major digital platforms.
In 2011 a group of musicians joined forces to create NODe, an acronym from the phrase, “Not Ordinary, Dead”. The Italian powerhouse of a band transcends genres, times, and influences, with a sound that blends indie, pop, punk, new wave, and darkwave, they’ve come together as post-modern pop, and their latest single, ‘S.O.D.A.’ is a good example of their style.
