Lewis Watson is back a year and a half after the release of his debut album 'The Morning', he has returned with a fantastic track, with a fuller sound 'Maybe We're Home' is continuing the usual Lewis Watson lyrics and melodies but seems a bit more upbeat and with thicker instrumental layers. This is the first taster from his next album, and it's creating quite a big hype around the artist, he's currently supporting Gabrielle Aplin on her tour and we reckon is set for a pretty big summer and second half of the year too.
2. Left Hand Free - Wyvern Lingo
Wyvern Lingo are a three-piece from County Wicklow, Ireland; Karen Cowley (vocals, keyboards), Caoimhe Barry (vocals, drums) and Saorise Duane (vocals, guitar). A week ago I went and saw Hozier on his tour at O2 Academy Brixton, and Wyvern Lingo were his support, and ever since I've had them on repeat. This cover stood out in particular and they performed some of their fantastic tracks from their forthcoming EP too... Enjoy!
'Catapult' is the most recent single taken from singer / songwriter, Jack Savoretti's re-released fourth studio album, 'Written In Scars'. The album made it to #7 in the UK Albums Chart and has gained a fair amount of support too. This is a stunning song accompanied by a beautifully simplistic video, it's one to turn up loud and just take in.
4. 7 Years - Lukas Graham
This track peaked at #1 in the UK Singles Chart and is taken from Lukas Graham's second studio album 'Lukas Graham (Blue Album). The Danish soul / pop band released the track last year (2015) in September and it's gone on to reach #1 in 15 countries including the UK Singles Chart. It's a fantastic track and as it's success shows a very popular one.
Another band I came across supporting at a gig, this time it's Slowlights, saw these guys support Eliza and the Bear at The Boileroom, Guildford. They're like an younger, 'indier' Coldplay. They're at the beginning of their musical career as a band, but they're a promising group and I'm really looking forward to hearing whatever they have to offer next!
