Starting fresh again: Irish act The Flavours are ready to move on from toxic energy on ‘More Than Once’

Cork City 4-Piece band The Flavours are an impressive folk, indie rock, soul, reggae and jazzy mesh of wonder and ‘More Than Once‘ is their latest single to bless our ears from 2020. Forgetting this torrid year is the key but unlocking quality music is the right door to open; in these often confusing times that leads us astray like a lost kitty cat.

Her stunning vocals drift in so sweetly and with a tone that is never rushed or unnatural. Your heart feels happier as you tap your feet and wonder how they sound live. The band have a humble and soulful sound, they appear to all genuinely enjoy each other’s company and this shines through like the sun coming through on a winter’s day in the UK. It might be chilly outside but you feel warmth and can’t help but have a goofy smile while listening.

There is so much to like here as they tease us at the beginning and gracefully open to the door for us to wipe our shoes and walk into their journey. This is the story of being let down a few too many times and the game is now stale and old. You have been let too many times and you now you are sick and tired of it. You waited and waited but they showed zero respect. The kindness you had has been wrapped up over you like plastic in the sea and you know it’s time to remove it for good.

With a luscious vocal delivery and a band in tune with each other’s styles, they send through a message that is heard loud and clear. After being chosen to perform at Wild Roots Music, Performing Arts & Adventure Festival 2021 with James Morrison and Kaiser Chiefs on the line-up, the arrow is pointing up for these archers.

More Than Once’ from proudly Irish band The Flavours is a track that you will end up playing again and again due to its quality and real message. After all, you deserve to be with someone that respects you and sticks to their word.

Support the band via their Spotify and see their smiling faces on IG & FB.

Sultry inspiration to enjoy nature with ‘Water’ from Charlotte Lansman

Singer-songwriter Charlotte Lansman is back with her fab debut single called ‘Water‘.

The debut single from jazzy-soul singer Charlotte Lansman. This song is about someone finding themselves in a position where they feel destitute, abandoned, alone and trapped in the emotional roller coaster of a relationship going south. Then able to find strength and peace by escaping within.

Out of the room, the building, the city, and into the quiet solitude of water. Inspired in part by a past relationship and in part by quarantine which is totally understandable. Initially feeling completely trapped, then the freedom of taking the daily hour for exercise in nature. Space to breathe and reboot the brain from this crazy world. It’s time start again and learn from before.

Water‘ from Charlotte Lansman who tingles the air with this song that is so beautiful. I love her voice and this is a song that was made with so much care and heart. This is the type of music that I wish got more love. For us to be fully happy inside, we need to experience being in water for healing. Water heals all wounds. Dust off those goggles.

Georgia and her retro-pop band “The Vintage Youth” have established quite a reputation in London and are looking for more. When gigs are available again, they will certainly be aiming to tour far and wide. After a 50 date support tour in 2019, this is an artist that is pushing to be at the top.

After being signed to top UK management company, TALENTBANQ and heading into the studio to record her new EP – ”Overthinker”, big things are happening. Her Team now in place, this frees Georgia up to fully focus and making music and making sure the band’s dynamics are on point.

The mixture is of vintage and fresh new sounds emerging from the beautiful big blonde hair and big voiced Georgia who holds her tone expertly the whole way though.
