Stylistic Rock and Accessibly Soulful Pop Collide in Elliot Wren’s Sophomore Single “Good Luck”

There was no forgetting up and coming Pop trailblazer Elliot Wren after their debut single “RIP My Diary”. We’re stoked to announce their return with the single “Good Luck” which dropped on August 21st.

As soon as we heard Elliot Wren’s boundlessly magnetic voice and the earwormy appeal in her debut, we knew they’d be one to watch. Good Luck affirms it.

Even though there was only a short duration between the two releases, Good Luck stands a testament to the maturity which Elliot Wren has found in their sound. Good Luck is a feisty yet compassionate infusion of slick and stylistic Rock and accessibly soulful Pop. The snappy lyrics are packed with compassion, if you’re looking for a little aural empowerment to restore the balance of your self-worth, hit play.

Needless to say, we’re stoked to hear what comes next.

You can check out Good Luck for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.

Longcoats bring out awesome indie-rock UK party starter ‘Drag’

Drag‘ from Longcoats is the fantastic new single from the top notch UK band.

Formed in 2019 by Ollie Sharp, Arthur Foulstone, Kane Pollastrone & Norton Robey, Longcoats fuse that classic British Indie Rock sound of a generation with a sprinkle of American Pop Rock for their own jaunty energetic feel and catchy hooks that make every garden party feel like Reading Festival.

2020 brings their debut EP ‘October’ on Halloween and sadly also brings the departure of two band members.  However two new members are already In place brings Austen Rudall on Bass & Ollie Bull Lifely on Drums which is an exciting new move for the band.

The sound is laid completely bare, naked in its realness and grit from the vocals that brew like a newly made cuppa tea. The band have a way of keeping your attention with their groovy riffs and dance-along style. They want you to get sweaty while listening, letting your body move in ways 2020 has taken away from our souls.

Longcoats have released two songs now and you can hear the evolution already from 2019’s ‘Used To Being Used‘. I feel like ‘Drag‘ is their best effort yet with much more to come.

Escape Mundanity with Anthony James Latest Indie Rock Pop Single “The Biggest Thrill”

Anthony James’ latest Indie Rock Pop hit “The Biggest Thrill” doesn’t hang around before hitting you with punchy anthemics.  With most new Pop tracks, you at least need to get yourself to the chorus before you can really get a feel of the single, but with his ability to construct solid verses and bridges, Anthony James provides a refreshing approach on Pop.

The Biggest Thrill is the perfect soundtrack to hedonism, we all chase after different objects of desire through addiction and lust. The lyricism within the single gives a stark view on the lengths we will go to for an escape from monotony. With his command of rhythm combined his ability to conjure clever soundbites within his lyrics it is clear to see that the London-based artist has an infinite amount of potential. His hits are already radio-ready, so, you can expect to hear plenty from the up and coming artist in the near future.

You can check out the Biggest Thrill for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
