Albums | Ches Barrow releases single “Wild” to be featured in ITVBe TV Campaign

Posted by on November 16, 2022

Following the release of her debut EP, ‘Girl Who Ruled The World’, Ches Barrow returns with the immense single ‘Wild’. The talented songwriter wrote the track having been approached for a major luxury beauty TV commercial on ITVBe for her luxury beauty brand, Ches Editions (she’ll also be starring in the commercial).

When speaking about ‘Wild’, Ches said: “I of course wrote it with the aesthetic and vibe of the ad in mind; envisioning a fashion-runway edge with the models doing their thing and a low-key ‘luxury beauty’ depth. But it also is absolutely naturally an extension of my artistic-style and musical growth. The lyrics (‘I shake my hair’) attest to Ches Editions’ ‘hero product’ being featured: The Ultimate Oil for Hair. The product and brand is about ‘clean luxury beauty’ and goes against the grain of its competitors; existing as 100% Natural with zero synthetic ingredients. The song encapsulates this fearlessness.”

Produced by Ches, mixed by Grammy and Emmy Award-Winning Carl Glanville (U2, Jason Mraz, Joan Jett, Counting Crows) and mastered by Chris Gehringer (Lady Gaga, Dua Lipa, Rihanna, Avril Lavigne), the track without a doubt empowers you to have confidence within yourself mirrored in its impressive production. Ches, who’s previously received support from the likes of Earmilk, Wordplay and Fame Magazine, openly sings about her experiences, while showcasing her effortless voice:

“My dream has always been about the songwriting and it feels so gratifying to have finally got to a place where I allowed myself to believe in me so much and the result of the production is something I’m truly proud of. This is the culmination of my so-far life’s work to fruition; my growth as an artist and person is in the ‘fearlessness of ‘Wild’; and that it’s going to be in the commercial for my brand that I’ve also worked so hard for and has such a vital message, is everything. I’m here for all of what believing in myself as an Artist brings”

With her relatable songwriting and sync so soon after her debut EP, Ches’s signature songwriting and stamp continues to be heard.

Alternative | Alt Hip Hop Act WHO SHOT SCOTT Release “LOVE WE’LL NEVER KNOW”

Posted by on November 20, 2021

Armed with an inspiring story that lies within the upbringing and heartbreak of the man behind WHO SHOT SCOTT, the experimental hip-hop artist has certainly been through trials and turbulence. Fleeing Iraq in the arms of his mother when he was 2 years old, they were forced to journey to Moscow due to the dangers in his home country. After time in the Russian capital, they packed their belongings and travelled to New Zealand. Meeting and finding comfort in a friend at the age of 8, their shared love for hip-hop resulted in an internationally performing duo with big visions for the future. In 2019 however, his partner, citing new-found religious belief, abruptly announced he will no longer make music, moved overseas and left his closest friend with no goodbye. After some gruelling months, experimental hip-hop artist WHO SHOT SCOTT was born from the ashes of that personal and professional apocalypse. The hybrid variety of influences and vibes on their new single and video is both impressive and as eclectic as it gets. Tap in above now and read a quote from the artist below!

“Vulnerability has always been at the forefront of my creative philosophy, whether it be my lyrical content or within my music production, I always strive to be brave and express my inner emotions as accurately as possible through my music. At the time of writing this song, I was dealing with the remnants of post-traumatic stress caused by an abusive relationship from my past. I was in a seriously bad place mentally and finally came to the realisation that I wasn’t ever truly in love with this person, but instead, infatuated by the potential of the relationship getting better. I’m very blessed to say that I eventually got out of that situation safely, but the manipulation definitely had some long-lasting effects on me than I would have liked it too. For me – this song is my closure, this is me telling myself that what happened was not my fault and doesn’t define me or my future. I was just seeing a love that wasn’t truly there.”

Alternative, Pop | LaVo Molds a unique blend of alternative pop for “Enemy”

Posted by on October 26, 2021

LA based singer-songwriter and producer LaVo crafts a unique blend of alternative pop, incorporating various dance elements in stylish and suave production, especially on his latest offering “Enemy.” The upbeat vibe of this one has hints of Tame Impala influencec whille still staying on its own lane, and it’s a beautiful thing. The up-and-coming act is someone to keep an eye on without a doubt. Check out a quote from LaVo below and stream “Enemy” above now!

“At first I felt like I was writing this song from a point of attack. Through the process of finishing it, it became more about the duality we feel within ourselves and our relationship with others we hold close. I think it’s always easy to pick an “enemy” these days, But it’s never easy to see yourself as one. I think we have all wondered if that person you’re thinking about is simultaneously thinking about you. It’s always been one of those things I’ve wondered, maybe laughed at the possibility even but I do think there’s something beautiful about it.”

Alternative | Fiery Indie-Pop Artist Sophie Kilburn Shares Debut EP ‘My Room Made Public’

Posted by on September 12, 2021

Sophie’s new My Room Made Public, is a four-track EP with an indie-pop inspired style fused with a classic 70s flare throughout. It is a bold sonic fusion of old school rocker & modern pop warrior that sits neatly alongside ALT Pop heroes like Haim, Phoebe Bridgers and Soccer Mummy that have successfully contributed to a new genre that fits in both the past and the present, with a heavy emphasis on storytelling. Check out a thorough quote on the project after the jump and stream Sophie’s new EP above now.

“The concept of the EP started from my growing hunger turned obsession with wanting to be heard. What do I have to do to be really listened to, to be taken seriously as an artist, as a woman, as a person? How much do I have to share to feel like I’m enough? I spiraled, thinking ‘it’s just not in the cards for me’. The noise in my head got so loud that it really started to well… piss me off. I became acutely aware of how strong the pressure of sharing everything with everyone all the time is. There is this fear that if you don’t share it all your identity is no longer validated or worthwhile and that can be very dangerous. I don’t want to keep feeling that and I don’t want anyone else feeling that either. The project took on a whole new meaning when the pandemic hit and we were all forced to reflect on ourselves and the world we live in, it made me think well it is more relatable now than ever.  With My Room Made Public, I wanted to create a body of work that is an emotionally open and honest introduction to me as an artist and the songs I write. It is chapter one of what I  hope will become a classic trilogy. At the end of the day, I just want to bring emotional comfort and make people want to fight for what they want out of life, find themselves in their own way and to never settle for something that hurts them. I guess I am trying to do that for myself too  but there is always strength in numbers.”

Letting go can be painful but holding on when you can’t or won’t give them what they deserve is cruel.” – Sofia Biancardi
