Oranj Son - 'Psycho Disco Face' (UK Rock)
Friday, November 27, 2015
Ellesmere Port. Home of the Vauxhall Astra, oil refineries, and now of Oranj Son, one of the most exciting and talked-about bands to emerge from the North West of England in 2015.

Comprising Kieran Linford (guitar, vocals), Lew Yii (percussion), Brad Welch (bass) and Matt Linford (keys, guitar), their brand of infectious and hypnotic groove-laden rock brings to mind classic East and West Coast US Psychedelia, Northern European Electro and 80's Post Punk - influences they wear as proudly as Phil Daniels wears his parka.

Oranj Son are the latest band to join the roster of Edge Hill University’s The Label Recordings, the team who discovered Hooton Tennis Club.

“Music is about to get interesting again....”
Keiran Linford, Vocals

"Working with Oranj Son on their debut single, has been a wonderful creative journey."
Carl Hunter, Producer

Ships Have Sailed - 'If Only' (Pop-Rock)
Thursday, November 26, 2015
Ships Have Sailed, an alternative pop-rock duo hailing from Los Angeles, debuted their first EP 'Someday' in 2014, gaining extensive airplay on College, NPR, and commercial radio in the US and Canada. The EP's success inspired the band to tour the East Coast, during which time they began piecing together their first full-length album, 'Moodswings'.

The LP veers away from today’s single-driven musical climate with a well-rounded, full-length story intended to be heard from the beginning to the end. The theme of the record echoes the band’s name, a positive spin on the phrase “That ship has sailed,” and meditates on change’s ability to impact one’s life at any moment.

Ships Have Sailed have recently had a track called 'Midnight' included in the feature film, BRAND: A Second Coming. This summer has also seen them playing showcases at 2015’s SXSW and Canadian Music Week.

Bloodhounds on My Trail - 'Jolly' (Shoegaze)
Saturday, November 21, 2015
It's no secret that Australia has a burgeoning shoegaze scene. From within the burgeoning Melbourne shoegaze community, Bloodhounds On My Trail are set to release ‘Escape II’ internationally through US label Moon Sounds Records. where they join a healthy roster with such notable bands as Ceremony, The Foreign Resort, Dead Leaf Echo, Static Daydream, and Follow The Sea. This deluxe edition of their debut EP ‘Escape’ will also feature additional tracks ‘She’s In My Plans’ and a remix of ‘Jolly’ by celebrated dreampop duo Ummagma.

'Jolly' is the first single off this EP. "Jolly is about having a good moment when you've been having a bit of a difficult time and wanting to not let it go to waste. Happy for people to enjoy our music and take what they want out of it. How it makes them feel. The message is in the ears of the listener," explains Bloodhounds guitarist Chris Donaldson.

Bloodhounds are Johnny Green (guitar, vocals), Chris Donaldson (guitar), Nik Donaldson (drums) and Ché Walden (bass). With a love of shoegaze bands of the late 1980s to early 90s, Bloodhounds On My Trail seek to fuse the rhythmic underpinnings of bands like the Velvet Underground and the Stooges with the infectious stylings of shoegaze luminaries such as Cocteau Twins and Slowdive.

Since playing their first show in February 2014, the band has been blossoming through a whirlwind combination of live shows, festivals and recording sessions. Their music was met with positive reactions, encouraging press, and invitations to play with notable Australian artists such as Lowtide, Contrast, and White Walls.

Thanks to Tonedeaf and Gabe Lewis from Lowtide, one of the foremost shoegaze acts in Australia, Bloodhounds on My Trail began to be known as one of the best Aussie shoegaze acts around. "They sound like how I want my guitars to sound," Gabe explains. "Needless to say, I was immediately hooked. Really languid, cascading washes, and wearing their pastoral shoegaze influences on their sleeves.”

All of this prompted the band to formally commit their hazy tones to tape at Birdland Studios with renowned engineer and producer Matthew Hosking, who was the perfect match for the band - also being deeply immersed in shoegaze music and having a record of outstanding work with fellow shoegazers Lowtide, Contrast, vhs dream and Hideous Towns. This year has also seen the band gain momentum with appearances at local gaze festivals alongside Flyying Colours, Immigrant Union, Black Cab and Day Ravies.

"I hope for people to enjoy it and get a buzz off our tunes. We ain't preaching anything, just making music we find exciting and want to record and play live," says Johnny Green.
