Band - Lukas Mod3no & Veela
Track - Drought
Biog - I'm 21 years old, from Lithuania. Started dabbling in electronic music production when I was 14 and it's been pretty much my main hobby ever since. I make anything from drum & bass and dubstep to ambient and garage. Depending on the track I make, I focus on creating an engaging atmosphere or creative sound design (most of the time, both). Looking forward to getting more people to hear my music and making more cool tunes :)

Artist - Jessica Luise
Track - Nice Try
Biog - ‘Nice Try’ is the new single by Jessica Luise. It’s out on 22nd January 2021 and it’s a totally blissful but bittersweet listen, which you might like if you’re a fan of The Sundays, Wolf Alice, Pale Waves and beabadoobee
North West based singer Jessica Luise returns with her third single release ‘Nice Try’ on 22nd January 2021. Recorded at Matchbox Productions in Warrington, ‘Nice Try’ is set to kick off an incredible year for Jess.
The uplifting melody of ‘Nice Try’ pairs with the melancholic nature of the lyrics to create a bittersweet but blissful song, which was written as a form of closure after a personal experience. The battle between head and heart is an experience so familiar to most, and ‘Nice Try’ explores the back and forth of falling for someone you know you shouldn’t. “You make me weak at the knees, you do”, Jess sings, before questioning why she feels so intensely about someone that she knows could hurt her. Jess’ impressive vocal range only adds to this ordeal of emotions, switching from a passionate intensity to a delicate, vulnerable whisper at a moment’s notice.
Jess says of the single: “This song is the one that helped me blossom as an artist. The simplicity yet rawness of the lyrics made this song quite cathartic to write and record.”
‘Nice Try’ follows up Jessica Luise’s second single ‘Television Mister’, and places itself as the perfect transition between her previous release and something much, much bigger. The breezy warmth of the single creates a memorable listening experience for fans of The Sundays, beabadoobee, Wolf Alice and Fleetwood Mac. Her previous releases have seen support from BBC Introducing Merseyside as well as nationwide airplay on Co-op Radio.

Artist - Deva St John
Track - Reckless
Biog - Born in London to American parents and raised in Berkshire, Deva St.
John’s sound is a bridge between the soundscapes of British and
American pop culture. A peerless vocalist and authentic lyricist, her
boozy lo-fi alt-rock production and gnarly vocals reveal an artist who
channels her sensitivities into songs that peer under the veneer of
modern life to express something fundamentally timeless, a yearning
dissatisfaction; rock n’ roll in its purest form. The Information Age was
Deva St. John’s third single since her debut release, Afterlife, in October
2018. In the year since, Deva exploded onto the London gig circuit,
spending the summer refining her performing nous in front of a steady
Following an interview with Linda Serck at BBC Introducing in Berkshire, Huw
Stephens picked up The Information Age for BBCRadio 1’s Introducing show.
Shortly after, Deva St. John released XV, her 4th and most
recent single, alongside fellow musician and long-term partner, Split The Dealer.
Inspired by contemporary pop and a rich array of 90s influences, XV is a deeply
personal narrative - articulating a ferocious fight for love. Spotify quickly
picked up XV for Discover Weekly, and it hit 30K+ streams within the first six
weeks. XV piqued the interest of Sennheiser, which then lead to a live performance on
their Instagram, and a feature on their website.
Having performed for Sofar Sounds from London to Brighton, with a
Youth Music award nomination in October, and a main stage BBC
Introducing show booked for Readipop 2021, Deva St. John is one of
the country’s surest rising stars, and she won’t slow down for a minute.
ABOUT THE SONG
Deva St John grew up as a working actor. As much as she loved it (and still does)
she felt like she couldn’t really explore who she was or who she could become.
Unwavering commitment, regardless of how damaging it might be, seemed like the
only key to success. Hence the name of the track. When Deva finally got the courage
to also pursue music, it felt like a very reckless choice. She then committed way
less energy to acting and was getting a lot of angst out in the songwriting.
Deva was worried it would affect her employability.
'Reckless' is about throwing caution to the wind, ironically, for the sake of self-preservation.

Band - Feed Your Wolves
Track - I’ve Been Waiting for You
BIOG - Feed Your Wolves is a solo project from start to finish. All music is written, performed, recorded and produced by Andy Davidson as well as all artwork, website and merchandise design. “I have always wanted to write and produce my own album but always had an excuse not to. Enough of that, I’m doing it. I don’t know how far this will go, but for my own self satisfaction, its something I have to do.” “Music has been my life since I can remember. I currently sing in a cover band called Last Anthem, teach in some schools and do bits of graphic design. These are all jobs I love but I will never get away from my passion of writing songs and creating something from nothing. Enough time has passed by not doing it, it’s time to change.” Why the name? Feed Your Wolves? “I decided I didn’t want to release these records under my own name and eventually decided on ‘Feed Your Wolves’ because of a quote I had read. It goes like this…” There are two wolves always fighting inside me. One is filled with anger, hate, jealousy, shame and lies. The other wolf is filled with love, joy, truth and peace. The battle rages inside of you and everyone. Which wolf will win? The one you feed

Artist - Follow Me Dark
Song - Stars Collide
December 9, 2020 - Alt Rock/Metal band Follow Me Dark ends 2020 on a high note with the release of their self-titled odyssey “Follow Me Dark”. Slated to go LIVE on the winter solstice, the 12/21 release is an impeccable testament to their dedication and perseverance. COVID truly changed everything for musicians, putting them in an introspective position to create art during a time when nobody is playing shows. In light of this, Follow Me Dark chose to focus on finishing their album right in time for the changing of seasons. In the spirit of challenging comfort zones, their full length album is meant to welcome people into listening to something outside of their realm of comfort. Instrumentally, the band taps into multiple genres in an attempt to convey a mood through music to reflect the dimensions that are inside of all of us. Their intricate textural interludes and melodic choruses captivate fans of alt rock, metal, psychedelic rock, indie rock and even rock opera. The modern psychedelic grooves and metal attacks tap into fans of Muse, Alice in Chains and Deftones.
Follow Me Dark’s emotional new album isn’t afraid to confront human nature in a very raw and transparent way. Consisting of Stephen Kozak (vocals/guitar), Sean Batinic (guitar), Elliot Grove (bass) and Jim Boots (drums), the band reveals a chemistry between bandmates that assists in amplifying their message in a relatable yet ‘larger than life’ way. Hailing from Grass Valley, CA, the band has successfully introduced their grassroots following to a progressive approach to songwriting. And in “Follow Me Dark”, the band embraces very organic musical peaks and valleys, offering a refreshing complexity to the alt rock/metal genre. “Too much music nowadays is predictable, it’s unexciting. It’s not surprising. That’s something we pride ourselves in; we try to make music that pushes you into “I didn’t see this coming. I’m off my rocker. I can’t categorize this” says vocalist/guitarist Stephen Kozak.
Full length albums are often hard to come by in our singles-laden world. But “Follow Me Dark” has a unique way of provoking you to commit to listening from beginning to end. The “Follow Me Dark” project embraces the darker parts in all of us that we aren’t always consciously aware of. With the release of their self-titled project, they hope to create an outlet for people who might be confronting some of the same feelings that they do; those feelings of dread, confusion, chaos and anger. In the words of drummer Jim Boots, “There’s a dark, shadowy feeling to the music that’s kind of what the world is going through right now.” And after such a turbulent year, it’s important not to ignore those feelings but to welcome them knowing that many are experiencing the exact same thing. While the light and positive emotions bring us together, so do the dark ones. Our imperfections make us relatable to one another and after a culmination of two years of intense creativity, Follow Me Dark hopes to provide their fans with cathartic & spiritual experience to wrap up a year that is sure to go down in history books.

'Loose Canyon’ is the debut single from The Gabriel’s, a new band from the Midlands brought together through a shared love of melodic pop, jangly guitars and classic songwriting.
Featuring Gudg (vocals), Fran Feely (Bass), Leon Jones (Guitar) and Stuart Gray (keys). The band have all known each other socially for years. Gudg and Fran had some songs and they asked Leon if he fancied adding some guitar and soon after Stuart jumped on board and The Gabriels were born.
‘Loose Canyon’ was recorded in 2020 to the obvious background of Covid. Gudg explains “The song is about escapism, this year more than any we’ve all probably felt the need to escape. As a band we love the 1960s Laurel canyon Scene and would have loved to be have been part of it. It was a time where it felt like anything could happen both socially and musically and as a band it’s a big influence on us”.
All band members have a musical history before The Gabriels. Gudg previously sang with Pallenberg, Fran previously played with Elefant Records act The Silver Factory, Leon in Blow Up Records band Alfa 9, and Stuart in Fence Collective band Viva Stereo and Drone/Psych Band Children of Leir.
Taking in influences such as The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, C86, The Stone Roses and Teenage Fanclub as well as sharing a love for the 1960s Culture and soundtracks.
The band are currently recording their debut album and looking for options for release for the future. Live gigs are also planned.
We'd really appreciate any mention/review/interview -its tough for a new unsigned band trying tog et any exposure at the moment without live gigs!
The single will be released on January 31st 2021 and also features backing vocals from Robyn Gibson from The Junipers and was Mastered by Ben Booker(The Fernweh/The Coral)

Formed in East London in 2018 and hailing from just about every corner of the globe, The Ringards is the city dwelling collaboration of Enzo Salinie (lead vocals), Vinny Baker (lead guitar), Gary Cartmill (bass) and Joe Hornby Patterson (drums). Leaving their separate worlds behind, the band up sticks to a shared flat in Hackney and have been creating avant-garde singles loaded with grit ever since.

Primary songwriters Trevor Meyer and Thomas Heun played in competing
bands in high school. After college, they combined their talents and began
writing together. Joined by bassist, Marc Barone and drummer, Jon
Schlote; The Jobs musical space is primarily occupied in alternative rock
with tinges of surf, punk, and emo. Melodies are deliberate and songs are
rooted in pop sensibility often masked underneath the gaze of guitar fuzz.
Influences have greatly expanded over the years drawing from travel, world
topography, landscapes, the sea, storytelling, loss and isolation,
recuperation, and perseverance through physical and mental challenges.
Packaging in tonal influence that is governed by a love for British rock,
vintage rock and emo, The Jobs maintain their process-driven approach
focused on flow rather than force. As the band’s musical cadence
matures, the commitment to integral songwriting and love for innovation
balance the challenges of sailing upon the ever changing 2020 musical
landscape and beyond.
