Piano Rock

Billy Moffat has released his symphonic masterpiece, Through the Eyes of God, featuring Davie Brockett.

Scottish-born composer Billy Moffat brought plenty of his experience touring the globe with the show, One Night of Queen, to his latest release, Through the Eyes of God, featuring Davie Brockett on guitar.

Starting with dramatic neo-classic keys, there are no hints in the production to warn that the stunning crescendos will soon give way to over-driven scuzzed-up guitar solos that easily match the furore in an Apocalyptica track. Davie Brockett’s searing solos blazon the professional instrumental score with even more virtuosic stripes.

Though the Eyes of God is, quite literally, a jaw-droppingly symphonic masterpiece that will easily leave you ensnared by the sheer nuance and Moffat’s ability to compose a score that will put your rhythmic pulses under instant command.

The orchestral release is now available to stream via SoundCloud.

Ride the sonic crescendos in Fuzz Skyler’s latest indie piano rock single ‘Recall’

Fuzz Skyler

Not only do international piano-rock powerhouse, Fuzz Skyler break the monocultural mould, but they also thrash against every restraint which rock artists need to break through to create a sound that is capable of taking your breath away.

Their latest earworm, ‘Recall’ is filthy enough to make your ear canal feel defiled as you listen to the salaciously-charged, theatrically charismatic vocals paired with vintage-inspired instrumentals which affirm, quite definitively, that modern rock isn’t ready to be buried just yet.

The sonic crescendos which nod toward the timeless styles of Bowie, Muse and Queen are simply unforgettable. Recall speaks to my soul in a language I never even knew I was fluent in.

Recall was released on February 19th. You can hear it by heading over to Soundcloud.

TWOFEW – Dreamin’: The Soaring Alt Rock Soundtrack to Your Escapism

‘Dreamin’ is the sophomore single from US-based newcomers TWOFEW which would definitely be worth burning your thumb for when sparking a lighter at a festival. Ahh, remember those? It wouldn’t be much of a surprise if TWOFEW were headlining them by the time they’re a thing again.

Even if you don’t venture further than the kitchen today, hitting play on Dreamin’ will give you a sanity-saving dose of escapism. The track instils a sense of optimism which reminds you that your current circumstances aren’t forever and escapism is always a possibility; the journey starts in your mind.

With an infectious chorus which could rival Bryan Adams’ ‘When You’re Gone’ and an almost overwhelming offering of whiskey-soaked soul, we’re stoked to have TWOFEW on our radar. We have no doubt that TWOFEW will continue releasing tracks which make life feel infinitely more endurable.

You can check out Dreamin’ for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.

Duelling Piano Rock Pioneer Jerry Impini Has Released Their Latest Single “Been Bad for Me”

http://jerryimpini.bandcamp.com/track/been-bad-for-me-a-dueling-piano-rock-original-pre-order

Not content with the already-established genres, Dallas, Texas-based artist Jerry Impini has created their very own. If the prospect of Duelling Piano Rock doesn’t get you excited, I feel a little sorry for you.

Alternatively, if your attention has been piqued by the pioneering take on Rock, it will definitely be stated by Jerry Impini’s raucously energetic hit “Been Bad for Me”.

In traditional Rock, keys tend to take a backseat (with the exception of sporadic solos). But in Been Bad for Me, the piano progressions which exude Jim Jones-style frenzy dominate the soundscape. The level of energy which will hit you when you hit play on Been Bad for Me is unparalleled.

It may be a niche sound, but we will always champion the artists who stretch their imaginations before orchestrating their music.
