Nashville-based singer songwriter Jenn Bostic shares video with a twist for new single ‘Faithful’ – the title track from her upcoming album


Jenn Bostic


Single release 13th April 2015

Album release 1st June 2015


Nashville-based singer songwriter Jenn Bostic returns with her new album, “Faithful”.

Having gained heaps of confidence from both the success of her last album, “Jealous, as well as three tours in the UK and Ireland, Jenn has learnt to trust more fully in her instincts as an artist.

“I’ve had the opportunity to tour internationally and reflect on certain things that have made me so much stronger as an artist. There is more of my heart in this album. With ‘Jealous’ there was so much healing still to be done over losing my dad. In ‘Faithful’ I feel there is strength and power in the lyrics and I hope people find encouragement from my new songs. I had the privilege of working with some incredible producers, and this album is definitely more pop.” 

The CD’s anthemic title track, ‘Faithful’ (released on the 13th April) signifies the idea of keeping faith with yourself. “’Faithful’ is a song of integrity. I believe who you are when no one is looking is really who you are,” says Jenn. The official video for ‘Faithful’ can be viewed here:

Jenn’s delectably seductive vocals put the ‘power’ in this empowering track about being true to who you are and believing in yourself… “Who you gonna be when there’s no one else around?” 

‘Counterfeit’ talks about a pessimistic voice that constantly deters you from following your passion. “It is a song of deceit, uncovering the true colours of someone or something that has misinterpreted the truth.”

‘Shiny New Toy’ will have you grabbing for the nearest hairbrush and belting along in front of the mirror. “This track is about understanding your value and desiring to be loved and appreciated in a deep way,” says Jenn. 

In 2012, with a few self-booked tours under her belt, Jenn released ‘Jealous’, which featured ‘Jealous of the Angels.’ On a shoestring budget, she shot a video for the song, then posted it on YouTube. The U.K.’s Mail Online later reported what happened next: The song first came to prominence thanks to the veteran DJ Simon Bates, when he played it on his Smooth Radio show … The response was enormous, and soon it was part of the playlist on Radio 2, which led to BBC Breakfast inviting Jenn to play live.”

She recalls: “I found out about it on Twitter, when someone wrote to say they’d heard the song on Smooth Radio and was moved by it. I thought, ‘An online radio station found it on YouTube – that’s awesome.’ Then I found out that Smooth Radio is one of the biggest stations in the U.K.” ‘Angels,’ which was followed up the U.K. charts by the ‘Jealous’ track “Not Yet,” went on to win five Independent Country Music Association Awards and Jenn was invited to perform it at the Grand Ole Opry.

Jenn went on to be the first international independent artist to have three singles—‘Jealous of the Angels,’ ‘Not Yet’ and ‘Missin’ a Man’ —playlisted at Radio 2, the most listened-to radio station in Europe. Famed BBC Radio 2 host Terry Wogan invited her to the station for a special St. Patrick’s Day appearance on his hugely popular Sunday show, Weekend Wogan.

Having achieved huge UK success, Jenn aims to further this with her new single and eagerly anticipated album.

“With ‘Faithful’, I wanted to get across how important it is that who you are when no one is looking is who you really are. At the end of the day, you have to live with you. If you’re going to create art it’s got to come from heart. It’s not about pleasing other people.

If we set fear aside and run with what our heart wants that’s going to give us the happiest life.”

Watch this first instalment of a three part narrative now onYouTube.

Singer Dale Norton says: “A lot of our album draws the parallels between the physical and psychological senses of flight and coming down – and in ‘Death Grip’ particularly, the frantic nature around trying to make sense of reality, what’s happened and what’s happening right now.

Canterbury’s Broken Hands fuzzed-out rock has already seen them play the likes of Reading & Leeds and Sonisphere Festivals and share stages with bands including Black Sabbath. Known for their intoxicating performances, Broken Hands’ have developed their own live concept known as Silver Landing Program – which involves covering the entire room in silver foil, which reflects their specially created light show across the venue.

Chastity Belt

Album Time To Go Home, released in the UK May 11th (Hardly Art)

Time to Go Home, the highly-anticipated and casually provocative new album from Chastity Belt, is released in the UK on May 11th via Hardly Art. To celebrate the occasion, Chastity Belt are sharing their new, charmingly low-tech music video for their anti-slut shaming anthem ‘Cool Slut,’. The band have just returned from SXSW and are currently plotting dates for their first UK tour.
More info on Chastity Belt

Chastity Belt is a rock band consisting of four friends – guitarists Julia Shapiro and Lydia Lund, bassist Annie Truscott, and drummer Gretchen Grimm. They met in a tiny college town in Eastern Washington, but their story begins for real in Seattle, that celebrated home of Macklemore and the Twelfth Man. Following a post-grad summer apart, a handful of shows and enthusiastic responses from the city’s DIY community led them, as it has countless others, into a cramped practice space. They emerged with a debut album, No Regerts, sold it out faster than anyone involved thought possible, and toured America, a country that embraced them with open-ish arms. Now they’re back and the tab is settled, the lights are out, the birds are making noise even though the sun isn’t really up yet: it’s Time to Go Home, their second long-player and first for Hardly Art.

In the outside world, they realized something crucial: they didn’t have to play party songs now that their audience didn’t consist exclusively of inebriated 18-22 year olds, as it did in that college town. Though still built on a foundation of post-post-punk energy, jagged rhythms, and instrumental moves that couldn’t be anyone else’s, the songs they grew into in the months that followed are equal parts street-level takedown and gray-skied melancholy. They embody the sensation of being caught in the center of a moment while floating directly above it; Shapiro’s world spins around her on “On The Floor,” grounded by Grimm and Truscott’s most commanding playing committed to tape. They pay tribute to writer Sheila Heti on “Drone” and John Carpenter with “The Thing,” and deliver a parallel-universe stoner anthem influenced by Electrelane with “Joke.”

Recorded by José Díaz Rohena at the Unknown, a deconsecrated church and former sail factory in Anacortes, and mixed with a cathedral’s worth of reverb by Matthew Simms (guitarist for legendary British post-punks and one-time tourmates Wire), Time to Go Home sees Chastity Belt take the nights out and bad parties of their past to their stretching points, watch the world around them break apart in anticipatory haze, and rebuild it in their own image with stunning clarity before anyone gets hungover.
“They’re funny, and slightly goofy, and gently vulgar, and they play with an appealingly loose, relaxed confidence.” — Pitchfork

“In between pelvic-thrusting sexual innuendo and self-mockery, Chastity Belt filter feminist theory, cultural commentary and general intellectual bad-assery…Chastity Belt isn’t the band 2013 wants—it’s the band 2013 needs.” — CMJ

“The guitars on this record…have a nice ring to them, like Liz Phair’s recordings.”

STEEL TREES Premiere ‘Radiation Man’ Video With Gigwise

“Sheffield-based purveyors of punk-edged mayhem” – Classic Rock Magazine
“Big slick-sounding riffs that sound like they could cut a tree in half? Yep.” – Thrash Hits
“A surreal and mildly disturbing weed-fuelled reimagining of a recording session” – Gigwise

“Like a stoner-rock Pulled Apart By Horses covering Danzig” – Artrocker Magazine
“A big, blistering, stoner-beatnik b*stard” – God Is In The TV Zine
“Grizzled, full of scorching guitars, raw vocals and chugging bass, whats not to love?” – Shout4Music

For most ambitious guitar bands starting out on the road, it would be hard to find a more iron-clad seal of approval than a personal invitation from the legendary J Mascis to support Dinosaur Jr.

Well, that’s exactly what happened to riff-laden South Yorkshire ex-pit village trio STEEL TREES who reveal their new video for ‘Radiation Man’ today after its premiere with Gigwise recently:

“I think when J Mascis asked us to support Dinosaur Jr it was probably one of the best shows we’ve played, just cos…Dinosaur Jr!” enthuses front man Tom Hannon “Like them, we’re the misfits, the scruffs, the socially awkward people that you avoid for not being hip enough – we walk, talk and look a bit weird.”

A nightmarish, weed-fueled re-imagining of a recording session gone off the rails, this trippy offering is the perfect representation of a band who aren’t afraid to show a bit of personality – complete with a dominatrix, enormous radioactive joints and a bizarrely clad superhero who’s dangerously close to a public exposure lawsuit.

“We’re all from ex-pit villages in the Dearne Valley area of Rotherham, South Yorkshire” Hannon continues “Its affected our music yeah, but in a good way – because we want to get the f*ck out of here. No-one digs original music – it’s all about cover bands around here, so when you mention you’re in a band, the first question asked is “What Oasis or Arctic Monkeys songs do you do?” As soon as you tell them you’re in a band doing your own material, they freak out and their heads can’t handle it.”

Aside from winning them a slot with Dinosaur Jr, their chunky, driving riffs have seen the single pick up support from Team Rock Radio, Artrocker Radio, Amazing Radio, Classic Rock Magazine, BBC Introducing and Tom Robinson on BBC6 Music.

The boys have also been busy on the road mopping up local supports slot with an impressive list of names including Turbowolf, Dinosaur Pile Up, Jim Jones Revue, Amazing Snakeheads, Holy Mountain, Baby Godzilla, Qemists plus a slot on the BBC Introducing stage at Scotland’s T In The Park Festival.
Details of a new EP and tour dates TBA

“Grumbling synths, the hulking death-waltz of percussion and electro-gothic strings all align to create something beautifully harrowing. It’s majestic too, encapsulating the glory of shadows like Bjork or Lykke Li.” - The Line of Best Fit


If a certain psychic had her way, Lila Rose wouldn’t have made WE.ANIMALS.

The Toronto-born, California-based singer-songwriter has grown up with two great passions in her life: music, and an interest in protecting our planet and the millions of creatures big and small that call it home. But with those loves have come pains as well. She was born with a form of hyperacusis, a sensitivity that makes some natural sounds unbearable, and some music even more intense to listen to. Too, there was the seeming indifference of a great many people to the plight of our environment.

Rose has already found a way to push back against her discomfort with sound to make some beautiful and challenging music. But she has long wanted to use that same fighting spirit to dare us humans to be better stewards of our planet with an album that vents her frustration and expresses her affection. What she wasn’t sure of was whether she could, which is why she sought the services of a clairvoyant, seeking the answer to whether it was time to bring this album to life.

“She said, ‘No, you have another album in you before the animal album,’” remembers Rose. “Well…she was wrong.”

It’s a tidy metaphor for Rose’s drive to make WE.ANIMALS. in the first place: rather than listen to the voice of a human, she decided to listen to the cries of our home planet and the  countless number of animal species that are endangered or extinct due to mans’ mistreatment and disregard. And what came out as a result are 11 songs which matche her dismay and distress with music that is loud, brash, and unavoidable.

Recorded at both a small studio in the woods outside Santa Cruz and at world famous Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, WE.ANIMALS. uses the music to reflect its thematic concerns as well. Rose and her producer/bandmate Daniel Garcia moved away from the electronic-based sound that marked her acclaimed 2012 album Heart Machine, using mostly live instrumentation to complement the tone of the lyrics.

“Daniel helped me understand that I had some dark rock in my soul,” Rose says. “He definitely brought that out in me. That dark organic weird heavy sound like Nine Inch Nails, Tool, and Radiohead. We also definitely wanted to hold instruments in our hands as opposed to sitting in front of a computer.”

There are plenty of electronic elements – the thrumming drone of synths and some programmed beats – threaded throughout WE.ANIMALS. but what you’ll hear foremost are those big booming drums, the horns and strings, and Rose’s versatile, impassioned vocals.

Of course, Rose has been getting attention for her pointed lyrics and stirring voice since she started making music back in Toronto in the late ‘00s. But the majority of the raves have come since she relocated to California. It’s there that she was able to record her first EP (Osmos Your Sonica) and Heart Machine, as well as being named Best Bay Area Musician in 2014 by the East Bay Express.

As great as all this attention has been, Rose has bigger aims in mind, especially when WE.ANIMALS. is brought into the world this spring, and she is able to bring them to audiences on her upcoming tour, which kicks off in May.

“I want people to see the interconnectedness of all life,” she says. “I want the music to allow people to feel the expansiveness of their emotions, and to feel passionate and angry and inspired to make change in our lives for the greater scope of things.”
