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
