I had the absolute pleasure of catching ‘Benidorm Live’ this week; a live version of the hit TV show written by Derren Litten. The show translates to stage perfectly; it’s essentially like this mini pantomime…it’s funny, it’s ambitious, it’s tongue-in-chic and it featured my favourite characters from the season – the wonderful Joyce Temple-Savage played by Sherrie Hewson, is elegant and hysterical and commands the stage!
The members of Santa Monica band Cayucas enlisted Sean Solomon, art director of FOX TV show, ‘Lucas Brothers Moving Co’ to make a video for their new song, ‘Jessica WJ’. The track has already racked up over a million Spotify streams since its release late last year, and the video is the perfect addition, underscoring the wit and freshness of the track.
Irish singer songwriter and musician, Jamie Harrison, has cracked the 1.3 million mark on Spotify with his most recent single, ‘Spent So Long’. It’s also making waves on the international scene, and has found its way to several key global Spotify playlists, including Soft Vinter, Casa De Casa and Autumn Leaves, and charting in the Top 50 of Italy’s Spotify Charts, as well as picking up major traction in Sweden and the US.
Peppermint Heaven will release this Friday a remix of their track, ‘Don’t Give Light To Darkness’, a collaboration with their friend, Oscuro, who has taken their sound to new levels. Peppermint Heaven’s unique brand of 80’s style indie pop has earned them a cult following over the last five years, and this track looks set to continue down the same road.
Fresh from selling out two very special headline shows at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on June 1st and June 2nd, New Hope Club have unveiled their latest new track ‘Medicine’. The band have put it out as a treat for fans, as it is a firm favourite amongst them. Led by funky guitar tones and with a catchy sing-a-long chorus, ‘Medicine’ always goes down a storm during their live set. The track has been added straight into Spotify’s prestigious New Music Friday playlist (606K followers).
