Nottingham’s Mollie Ralph is ready for her real man with soul-licious single ”Fella”

Life should be simple when it comes to love. You meet, connect, get to know each other and decide if you are a good match. Due to Social Media and Dating Apps weirdly warping our beloved brains love has become way more unnecessarily complicated. Then, the magnificent vocals of Mollie Ralph bolts into your confused ears with her soul tingled voice and changes this sad sentiment in an instant. She wants her real man now and is ready. Molly is tired of boys and their silly games.

This is a beautifully created song and is so honest. A story about being asked to be in 2nd place and not taking the bait with smooth words. We should all the number one right?

Nottingham singer Mollie Ralph catches your attention with her pure voice and she strikes through like a lightning storm through your healing heart. This is real talent right here. ”Fella’‘ is an absolute anthem and I love her vivid honesty here. She wants to be number one and I’m with her on this notion. Why would you want to settle and be number two even if life would be easier? Surely you would end up resentful and bitter about the whole arrangement. I could imagine Mollie impressing live with her phenomenal vocal range that is massively impressive. This young UK artist is surely on the way to the top.

Lovable Marty returns with a positive message and happy hearts on ‘’Dance With You’

It won’t be long now. I don’t know about you but I really miss dancing with other humans. The feeling and smiles, that warm embrace or even the drunken shouting in the ear if it’s with a mate during a night out. Ah, good times. 

Marty’ is an all-female band based in Nottingham in the UK, dedicated to experimenting with new sounds and styles and trying out a multitude of genres. After doing solo work before, the three girls joined together to form the band, bringing their individual musical influences and performance styles to the group. Whilst only being a band for just over a year, the group have made a good impact and when the music scene opens up again, expect them to be on many exciting lineups.

I love ‘Marty’s’ sound. They mesh well together and make beautiful music. This is a band that deserves the big stage and I can’t wait to see them live. 

Dance with ‘Marty’ and immerse yourself in their beautiful music on Spotify.

Bone Cult’s ‘’Realize’’ is the freaky faced paced single for 2020’s wild year

This is a duo based in Nottingham, UK who come out with bone crushingly intense Death Electronica. This is definitely not music you would want your kids to listen to, unless they don’t plan on sleeping for a while.

Driving beats and synths power is the name of the game here, powering through again and again to no rest bite. ‘Bone Cult’ are here to rock and not stop.

Starting out as a stripped back guitar and drums outfit, the duo has evolved by embracing technology to create new unheard on earth sounds. Taking inspiration from Daft Punk, The Prodigy, Slipknot, Death From Above 1979 and Enter Shikari, the duo’s productions span a vivid and vast spectrum of rugged energy, riffs and production.

Relentless touring has seen the band perform to festivals across Europe, North America and Asia. The band’s popularity has soared internationally following their inclusion as characters in the online video game ‘Avakin Life’. A massive achievement and a great way in for the band. Gaming and music are two cultures that really mix well. 

This is music to a select few but I can appreciate it’s quality. I wouldn’t listen to this before bed however.

The Fall of Ego don’t hide away with darkly-rocking release ‘World In Disguise’

Newly formed Nottinghamshire-based alt-indie rock band The Fall of Ego have released their new track ‘World In Disguise’.

Drenched in gratuitous levels of overdrive and wrenching with anti-capitalist overtures, ‘World In Disguise’ plays against some widely-regarded sentiment about today’s society. Its frequency maxing and furiously penned lyrics mirror the incredible amount of angst many today can relate to. It’s easy to admire where the feeling is coming from too – our reality is not normality and pretending it isn’t amounts to, well, insanity. 

It’s a track that stands strong through its devotion to its unabashedly protestory lyrics. Plus, it’s not phased about being too reliant on avoiding the numerous traps many of its contemporaries might, and so ‘World In Disguise’ manages to fit The Fall of Ego, quite suitably, into an enjoyably mouthy set piece of counterculture. Check it out. 

You can check out ‘World In Disguise’ on The Fall of Ego’s Soundcloud page here.

A&R Factory Present: Josh Kemp

Josh Kemp is a singer songwriter from Nottingham, UK.  His video for  ‘Imaginary Friend: What a Wonderful World’, was shot on location around South East Asia.

Josh Kemp uses just an acoustic guitar and a loop pedal to create a sound to rival a band. Having played 500+ gigs in in the last 3 years on repetitive tours of the UK, Josh’s well practiced audience participation means his set is well suited to both main stage festivals and more intimate acoustic gigs.

Josh Kemp says

“The idea for this song and then video came from the realisation that we are frequently bogged down by negativity, in the news or even in our day to day lives as bad things are a lot more sensational or memorable and the spreading of good things are often deemed cliche, boastful, too personal or alienating.

I noticed that the good parts of life are often over looked or taken for granted
So I wanted initially to write a song that would explain to someone who would never have chance to see it, the best things in the world, in my opinion of course 🙂

We tend not to notice the big things we take for granted until they are gone, and that’s something I aim to change, even if it’s just for 6mins20!”
