NOVEMBER TOUR DATES SUPPORTING THE TING TINGS (DETAILS BELOW)
I’m Gold video –
Following on from the success of his last single BELIEVE, which achieved momentous support from BBC Radio 1 (Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens) BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq and Nemone) as well as XFM; the 21yr old electronic wizard, Ted Zed, is back with his brand new opus I’M GOLD, due for release on Jan 5th, through BMG.
The powerful lead-single I’M GOLD accentuates Ted’s distinct love of distorted guitars, trance-synths, beats, bleeps and layered harmonies. Ted explains: “It’s about feeling separated from the outside world and the realisation that we’re all part of a cycle and there’s no escaping it, but deep down we know we’re miraculous and gold.”
Ted’s music is often described as spacey, futuristic, psychedelic rock-pop; with impressive and unique live shows that are full of energy. You’ll find Ted triggering and manipulating pre-recorded sounds, samples and video projections, while providing live guitar and vocal; resulting in a mix of electronic rock-n-roll.
This year Ted wowed audiences at The Great Escape, Secret Garden Party and Calvi On The Rocks and is excited to be supporting The Ting Tings on their November tour (full details below).
Hailed as a Todd Rundgren-like genius, Ted Zed kaleidoscope through musical influences with a flick of a plectrum, whilst producing a sound that is entirely their own.
Ted Zed likes to accentuate the positive, the poignant, the powerful and the strange. “I’m into madness and things that push you out of your comfort zone,” he declares. “Everyone has madness within them. My music is about taking that madness and putting it to good use.”

AT THE HOLLOW SIGN WITH SPINEFARM RECORDS
+ REVEAL ALBUM TEASER VIDEO
Spinefarm Records is pleased to announce the signing of At The Hollow, who join the label’s already formidable roster of bands.
This Finnish trio has spent the past few months working on its label debut, recorded at Sound Supreme Studio in Finland with producer Janne Saksa (Mokoma, Turisas, Stamina, Rotten Sound.)
The album – titled What I Hold Most Dear – is due out on February 16th 2015, with the first single / video confirmed as Was It Worth It.
“It was springtime and there was so much light everywhere,” recalls the band about entering the studio, “but we still found the right mood and the right sound, somewhere between purity and death. We had a clear vision of what we wanted to capture on tape, and in the process of making the record, we felt that all of the members got stronger – everyone really found their place in the band. Everything kind of… clicked. Along with our audio engineer, our aim was to focus on keeping things new and fresh, hopefully achieving something that has never been heard before…”

At the Hollow are Risto Järvelin – percussion; Kalle Koo – guitar / vocals; Juho Martikainen– contrabass. All three hail from the South of Finland where, as students and teachers, they were raised on a steady diet of grunge, heavy metal, classical/orchestral music and left-of-centre electronic fare. They are fans of Megadeth, John Coltrane, Prokofiev and many more in between!
Definitely a band treading the less travelled path…
Eoin Glackin releases his second album Rain Finally Came via IRL. His current single Pretty Girls has received numerous BBC Local radio plays and you can see the video at :
He also plays the Taste of London festival on Sat / Sun Nov 22nd & 23rd.
A collection of songs best described as “contemporary folk story-telling with a rock edge”. Eoin is a modern day troubadour and one of Ireland’s most exciting rising singer songwriters.
Growing up on Dublin’s northside, the young Eoin became infatuated with the art of passing on stories through music; a passion that led him to the songbooks of Dylan, Springsteen, The Beatles and many more of folk and rock’s great ones, much to the amusement of his classmates, who were wrapped up in the ever divisive “Oasis or Blur” argument.
Self-taught on the piano and later the guitar, he began songwriting and busking at the age of 15, dipping in and out of various school bands. It was one of his heroes, the peripatetic Kris Kristofferson, who gave him the inspiration he needed to seriously pursue his music career. Believing “you couldn’t be a songwriter and stay home”, Eoin left Ireland at 21 and moved to London with a box of demos under his arm and a determination to play every pub and venue he could.
Industry heads soon got excited and the result was his first album, “Not Lost”, which was produced by the much-admired Ian Grimble (Manic Street Preachers, The Clash, Beth Orton).
The stunning debut dealt with themes of dislocation, isolation, fear and ultimately hope, with the album closing on the rousing mantra “everything can work out fine”. In 2011, Sony Ireland put the record out in his native land.
Along with his new EP – “Pretty Girl” – the highly-acclaimed “Rain Finally Came” will now be released for the first time in the UK, having previously only been available in Ireland. Eoin regards “Rain Finally Came” as a pivotal point in his musical career – the record where he really found his path.
The live stage is where he is happiest, and he has toured relentlessly over the past few years, across Ireland and the UK, including festival slots in Electric Picnic, Sea Sessions and Celtic Connections as well as supporting acts like Joan Armatrading and Beth Orton. He has built a strong and loyal live following which grows every time he straps on his guitar and stands centre-stage.
Coupled with strong airplay on RTE radio and other stations nationwide, Eoin Glackin’s place as one of the most promising emerging stars of the Irish music scene is well-deserved.
