The Scripts ‘Arms Open’ Video Out Now!

 

 

 

 

 

“For us, this is more than just a music video. Like the song itself, we wanted to reach out to as many people as possible, people who have been less fortunate in life, giving them a platform to tell their stories. On researching the ideas for the video, we came across so many charities, and while they are all doing such great work, we were immediately inspired by A Sense of Home and wanted to show support and build awareness. This organisation offered a real solution that could be rolled out across the world, particularly in Ireland where this problem is so prevalent. So please help us share it wide and share it proud with Arms Open.”

Mark, Danny + Glen

We Sat Down With Indie Band Mosaic, To Find Out Where It All Started!

 

 


 

 

Speaking to us about how they started, where they draw inspiration from and what we can expect from their brand new EP ‘For You’.

Q: What made you guys want to go into music, what started it all? 

A: “The Sheer Enjoyment of it really, I think we all started out playing our respective instruments from an early age. and that all we have wanted to do”.  

Q: What would be the best way of describing yourselves to listeners who may not of heard of you guys? 

A: “We all met while studying at the academy of contemporary music and have been together ever since. As individuals we have similar interests which is mainly music and football so there’s always something to laugh about between the 5 of us”. 

Q: Your brand new single, ‘RIO’, what can you tell us about that? 

A: “I’d say ‘Rio’ resembles our sound as a band. its very energetic, in your face, and it gets the crowd bouncing. you can definitely hear the rocky bloc party/Franz Ferdinand influences throughout as well”. 

Q: And finally, what was the writing and recording process like for this track/EP? 

A: “I think Rio was written when we were still at Uni. The lyrics were about relationshippy stuff happening at the time and we wrote it over a few practice sessions”. 

A: “The recording process was a lot of fun, we worked with another one of our mates, Henry Watkins, he did the producing for us. It was great to put all of our individual parts together and finally hear it as a collective”. 

 

Thank you to the boys in Mosaic for letting us pick their brains, and be sure to check out their brand new song ‘Rio’, which is out now.

Is Olisha Naiker the new Dua Lipa?

It’s not every day you get an unsigned pro sounding pop star… and an unsigned pro sounding pop star from Africa, that’s even better.

Meet Olisha Naiker (who’s Taylor Swift? this is Olisha Naiker). Her new single Starangers is one hell of a catchy tune. The fragility of her voice really captures her emotion in this song despite the strong up tempo beat of the track, it feels honest and real.

World-pop heroes Modiwo release new track ‘Never Give Up’

Hailing from Romania, Modiwo are no ordinary pop group. In fact, this isn’t just pop- it’s world-pop, taking inspiration from across the globe, from all kinds of people.

The band have written their own success story in Romania whilst contributing their time to supporting a number of charity initiatives too. For example, , they are currently involved with a charity called Fruit Fusion, where audiences attending their gigs will pay with fruit rather than money, the proceeds then being donated to local orphanages, in conjunction with The Bureau of Children’s’ Rights Protection. An average show can deliver up to 700kg of fruit to those most deserving. Modiwo carry this healthy living ethos through to their own lifestyles and into their music, promoting yoga and meditation as well as using their music as a form of relaxation therapy.

Joining together musical forces from Romania, Ukraine, Moldova and Hungary, their unique anthemic dream-pop sound is embellished in their live shows with a wide range of unusual influences including alpine horns, didgeridoos, and shakuhachi solos. Their latest track, “Never Give Up”, is an achingly blissful pillow of sunshine which brings to mind all the dreamiest elements of The Beloved.

‘Modern Soul’ from Les Kirsh

You’ll hear many people who say that soul music is dead, much like rock’n’roll, but these people are about to eat their hats as Les Kirsh is resurrecting the style after many years out of the game.

The scene is 1974: Les Kirsh has has been an emerging name in the soul scene for a while and he’s close to signing record deals and making the big time. Unfortunately, a car crash intervened and left Les’ dream hanging. He was in a coma for over a week and it took him around two years to fully recover, whilst he tried to relearn the songs he had written from before by picking up the guitar and strumming a few chords.

But recently, after a career pursued elsewhere, Les’ son stumbled across some of his old recordings, listened to them, realised they were vintage gold and consequently got his Dad back into the music game.

Les decided to pick three of his old tracks, ‘Say, ‘La La La’ and ‘Tell Me To My Face’ which he then took over to renowned producer, Andy Whitmore, who worked his magic and brought them into the modern day. Hence, Les’s self-labelled genre of ‘modern soul’.

Within the three tracks, there’s a lot of juggling with genres as Les likes to see himself as a complete songwriter, but this only shows his ability to adapt, which of course, is a good thing. There’s elements of pop, rock, even reggae, but at the end of the day, Les has always been a soul man.

Music Theory’s ‘Down the Aisle’

Love songs don’t come much purer than Music Theory’s ‘Down The Aisle’. Yes, love is a typical subject that a lot of artists write about, but fewer do it with as much honesty as Egyptian artist, Music Theory.

As a youngster, Music Theory admits that he was a shy character, but as he grew up he realised that music was a therapeutic release that allowed him to become more connected with his thoughts and dreams.

Music Theory categorises his style as mainstream pop, but he often strays into the worlds of rock, R&B and dance when it comes to creating his catchy style of music.

Inspired by some of the best in the business, including Maroon 5, Michael Jackson and Usher, Music Theory has a strong musical pedigree to live up to, but he certainly does this with ‘Down The Aisle’, which you can watch the video for here:
