“The soundtrack to the end of your summer” – OurZone 8/10
“The musical equivalent of smashing open a pinata” – F Yeah Pop Punk
“Me Vs Hero come out swinging with their fists raised” – AlreadyHeard 4.5/5
Following a long-awaited return to the live circuit supported by friends ROAM last month, pop punks Me Vs Hero are pleased to share the video for ‘Hang In’ – the latest track taken from their new album ‘I’m Completely Fine’.

Watch and share the ‘Hang In’ video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeoFLxN5520

Filmed on location in Blackpool, the video sees front man Sam Thompson and guitarist Bobby Pook in reflective mode as they take in the local sights and characters and reminisce on the experiences that have influenced the honesty at the core of their latest release.

“This songs means a lot to us” explains Thompson of the new track “It’s literally about hanging in there when times get bad. At one point when we wrote this record there was a three month period where I was homeless. I had three big bags for all my stuff and had no idea where I was sleeping most nights. The song is an accurate depiction of his life at that point. It’s something that, if you go through, you will make sure never happens again.”

Now, coming out of the other side with glowing reviews for I’m Completely Fine and their September headline shows with ROAM, the band are overwhelmed with the response to the new record.

For anyone feeling burnt out this week, it all just goes to show; hang in, it’s times like this you need…

​L     O     W     L     Y  premiered the video for their brand new single, ‘Stones in the Water’ via Clash yesterday and it is now available to stream/ embed via YouTube by clicking on the image above. Also available to stream via SoundCloud.

The single is released via Win-Win Records, 3rd November.

 

The band make their UK live debut at JaJaJa @The Lexington, Thursday 30thOctober

http://jajajamusic.com/2014/10/premiere-lowly-stones-in-the-water/

 

Driven by a crashing rhythmic force and insistent synth-lines ‘Stones in the Water’s lyric draws you into an almost mythical, shadowy description of nature: mysterious stones in water and tongues that glow in the dark. The video was created and directed by the Danish animation director William Reynish. Reynish has previously worked on music videos such as When Saints Go Machineʼs ‘Iodine’ and James Blakeʼs ‘Limit to Your Love’.

 

“The song is written about a canoeing trip in Canada I went on with my father and brother as a kid,” explains Soffie.“My dad would tell me tales of the loon on the lake and how the number of calls it made would be the same as the years you had left to live. Iʼm sure he meant well but I would stay up all night counting and being afraid to die! That loonʼs call put a serious mark on me! (And the sound is scary as hell!). The other parts of the song are mostly images and flickers from that trip.”

 

Lowly’s recent debut single Daydreamers picked up several plays on Lauren Laverne’s ‘Recommended’ show and served as an excellent introduction to the band’s restless, rousing pop, characterized by Nanna Schannong and Soffie Viemose’s lead vocals, typically sung in unison adding to the chorus’y psych vibe. The video has been added to theYouTube Spotlight “Emerging Artists From Across The Globe

 

Hailing from Arhus, Denmark, Lowly only formed at the start of 2014 – although the 5 members had been eyeing each other’s talents for some time before finally joining forces. “We all respected and admired each other’s music a lot before actually playing together,” say the band. “Maybe there was a fear of ruining something already great, but when we finally did it, it turned out that we could make something together we couldn’t have done alone. And, relying on that, we’ve created music totally new to us all. The energy of these songs comes from our rehearsals, not from a lot of postproduction. We want people to be able to feel the inspiration and curiosity on the record. We really hope that comes across.”

 

Lowly is: Nanna Schannong (vocals, guitar) and Soffie Viemose (vocals,laptop), Kasper Staub (synthesizers), Thomas Lund (bass + Moog) and Steffen Lundtoft (drums and percussion).

THE LOUNGE KITTENS RELEASE VIDEO FOR ‘DUALTIY’

With metalheads around the world waiting for the release of Slipknot’s new album next week, THE LOUNGE KITTENS have released a new video to tide us all over.

Highlighting their own Duality, their interpretation of the Slipknot classic sees confusion and chaos arise over a ‘Kittens double booking. The ‘Kittens explain:

“Slipknot’s ‘Duality’ has got such a frantic energy about it (especially when you accompany the video alongside it) with super dark angst and dirty rhythm, and I really wanted to convey the same atmosphere but still take it away from its origins” explains Jen Kitten

“Duality was a perfect choice for a video due to the various themes we could extract from the original song, video and how well they leant themselves to our interpretations.” Continues Timia Kitten.

“The Lounge Kittens as a band are all about ‘DUALITY’. So we had two groups of fans from different sides – the cabaret crowd who appreciate the cheek of what we do and the die-hard metallers with a sense of humour – arguing over a double-booking and whose event we should ultimately play at. This also gave us an opportunity to put the two sides in different masks which was a nice little nod to Slipknot. Jenny’s arrangement reminded me so much of the silent film era, whenever we sang the verse I envisioned Keystone Kops, Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, slapstick chases and funny sped up running, so that was what we were channelling during the making of this video. Obviously, it’s not a Lounge Kittens video without a generous helping of goofiness, so making it silly, ridiculous and fun was always massively important. What we ended up with was a good ‘ole slapstick chase. Plus also sequins.” Timia Kitten
