Another week on six degrees and another opportunity to bring the music of the participant bands of FOTN. Every Tuesday I’ll bring you six bands to enjoy a little moment of music. Two videos, two tracks and two live performances from our “fresh” bands.
Big Wave – Only You
Big Wave is releasing their debut single “Only You” on November 5th (official release date). Nevertheless, this five piece indie pop band from Torquay has already a remarkable work on its background, with two EP’s that include very good songs like Another Year of Two, Circumstance and Dying on the Vine. Their new single will be released on a “beer” colour vinyl with the songs “Only You” and “Living Room“. The single will be launched with a show at London’s Buffalo Bar on Sunday 28th October with special guests Hella Better Dancer, The Tuts & Young Romance.
Izzi Dunn – Picture of You
Cellist, singer-songwriter Izzi Dunn participated in our listening batch 34 with this wonderful cover by pop singer Mr Hudson. The question comes to us immediately. Should artists submit covers to FOTN? I don’t know what to say. I guess it depends on the kind of cover and what the artist did with it. On this cover by Izzi Dunn, I think that the artist shows a big respect by the original song, but at the same time, she completely transforms it giving to it the voice of her cello and the perspective of a woman. Listen to the original song here.
Sea Stacks – Dancing with Lions
One of my favourite tracks that appeared on the listening batch 30 of September 14. Sea Stacks is the music project by Londoner Davy Berryman. His music integrates a big instrumentation and it has influences by artists like Bon Iver, Death Cab For Cutie or Frightened Rabbit. Watch Sea Stacks in this live video performing Pink Toes
Slacker73 – Sucker Punch Love
Slacker73 are one of our more participative bands on FOTN. With a retro 70’s sound, this band from Glenrothes, Scotland, combines different styles of rock, psichedelia, blues and even some Americana notes in a very personal sound.
Mina Tindle – Henry (Live)
Mina Tindle is on tour presenting her debut album Taranta. She visited London on October 28th and July 3rd and during her visit, the music of this french singer has been recorded several times in different live videos. In the last hours some of these videos have been published, like the one for the song “Bells“, recorded in a church in London, or this one of the song “Henry“, both included on the album Taranta.
Jennifer Left – Paper Trails
Jennifer Left at Clockwork Owl Studios on July 2012 performing one of the tracks from her new album Hushabye. Jennifer released already two singles from this album: Black Dog and Diggory. Watch the new offical video of the second single here (Diggory) and another video for this live session here (performing When Doves Cry, Prince cover).
