Owls & Lions – ‘God Bless You & Protect You’

Owls & Lions aren’t just your usual wedding band. The New Jersey group show that you can have not just live music, but a band that plays original songs, with an original sound and approach. They make celebratory, stylishly rustic folk-rock, equally suitable for ceremonies, singalongs, parties, and quiet reflection, and their latest single, ‘God Bless You & Protect You’, although addressed to a child, could as easily work for a spouse, a parent, or a dear friend.

The Stolen – ‘Millennial’

The Stolen have over the years been recognised by the likes of MTV, Billboard, and Alternative Press, and have shared stages with artists such as Neon Trees, All American Rejects, and Jake Miller, and have also played Vans Warped Tour. The New Jersey band’s single ‘Overboard’, released earlier this year, narrowly missed the top 20 on iTunes’ Alternative Chart, while other recent singles, ‘Change The Record’, ‘Stuck’, and ‘Rooftop’ illustrate where their sound is headed. New single, ‘Millennial’, comes ahead of their first full length, self-titled album, set for release on May 31. They’ll also be touring in support of the album.
