Finally, the restrictions imposed by the Pandemic are starting to lift and life is getting back to something that at least resembles normal. Of course, for so many of us, this means getting back (albeit slowly and cautiously) to seeing live events and even attending overnight festivals. Although, there are some important things you need to know and consider beforehand.
Ferris & Sylvester have released their brand new single ‘Flying Visit’. The soulful love song finds the pair baring their hearts and pleading for the other to stay through their raw vocal delivery. The song begins and ends with the simple statement ‘I love you’, and travels through a child-like yet sombre confession accompanied by guitar, strings and a Hammond organ.
Ward Thomas have today released their new single, ‘One More Goodbye’, from their Top 10 album, ‘Restless Minds’. The single is out on WTW Music/Sony Music. The duo have just finished a 14 date UK headline tour, but there’s no time to as they’re off to Australia to support David Gray next week on his tour, as well as a slot at Bluesfest, Byron Bay. Straight after this the twin sisters will be supporting Jack Savoretti on his European tour, commencing May 1. Ward Thomas will also be performing at this year’s Isle Of Wight Festival, on June 16.
Keane are currently in the studio putting the final touches to a brand new studio album, set for release later in the year, the first to be released by them since ‘Strangeland’, which came out in 2012. 2019 is shaping up to be big for Keane, one of Britain’s most beloved bands, who will also play a slew of festival dates this summer, including British Summer Time Hyde Park, as special guests to Robbie Williams, on July 14.
Irish band ALL TVVINS have announced their second album, ‘JUST TO EXIST’, will be released April 12 on Faction Records. The James Vincent McMorrow co-produced album is preceded by the brand new taster tracks, ‘Build A Bridge’, which premiered on Billboard, and ‘My Future’. ALL TVVINS will be headlining at Dublin’s National Stadium on April 13, ahead of UK and European dates in May. ‘Build A Bridge’ and ‘My Future’ are available to stream now, while ‘Just To Exist’ can be pre-ordered.
Liv Austen has signed with NUA Entertainment, and is set to release a new album in the autumn. After playing numerous shows this year – including the prestigious C2C, as as a variety of festivals – Liv’s next move is her latest single, ‘Window Shopping’. We had the chance to ask Liv six quick questions ahead of the release of the upbeat, high energy track, on 20 July.
We’ve spoken to Germein a few times over the years, and so we welcome the chance to catch up with them and find out what they’ve been up to. This year the trio from South Australia are performing at the Isle Of Wight Festival, before embarking on a 15 date arena tour supporting Little Mix. Lisa was excited to find out more.
