It's the dawn of a new day. The sun is but a few minutes from rising and you're immersed in a feeling like you've got the entire world to yourself while everyone else is still fast asleep. You walk to the beach from your favourite getaway (perhaps a welcoming family cottage) and proceed to walk down to its shores. Removing your socks and shoes, you sit with your feet in the wet sand as the gentle waves wash up to greet your toes. The feeling is complimented by the cool morning breeze while it graces your face. At this point, no problem in the world seems to exist and you're locked into a moment of absolute peace. Transform those notions into sound and you've become part of Psalm Trees's deep, transcendental experience.
London's a musical hub of innovation. Within, you'll find a healthy dose of accessible music that's broadly appealing, while also fostering some niche musical styles. On June 23, you can see the next generation of London's music scene take to the stage for Takeover Music Fest - a free concert hosted by London Music Office.
If you’re tapped into the London singer/songwriter scene, either by way of musicianship or just being a fan, you’ve likely heard John Muirhead’s name mentioned a time or three. The young musician has been receiving acclaim since his Yesterday's Smile EP debuted in 2016. His music is honest, genuine and, often times, can be taken as that ideal sound you’d love to have playing around the campfire on those relaxing, cool summer nights.
Last Saturday night marked the official re-launch for Reverb's return! The sounds were awesome, the energy was wild and EVAC was packed as the community came in to show their support. The night was a complete success and everyone had a blast!
Riffy and full of energy, the boys from Viscosity are back to put Beamsville on the map once more with their newest drop, Never Through! You’re in for a sound that’s steeped in a healthy blend of 90’s rock influence that will get you moving whether you’re in your teens to mid-thirties (but not limited to)! Andrew’s sharp guitar, Joseph’s grungy vocals and Sebastian’s dizzying keyboard melodies dance harmoniously together to create a sound that’s both fresh and… well, viscous!
“Think for yourself” - what does that even mean anymore? Day after day, we’re being pummelled with toxic information and exaggerated imagery telling us what to buy and who to be. The world is littered with systemic agendas designed to dissuade us from seeing the world on our own terms. Well, Cyphier (Louis Cyphier on vocals and Jason Karlsson on backing vocals and programming) are back to remind us to fight for our freedom of thought with their new EP, Cerebral Warfare, on Electric Bat Records!
