Esther Eden hits official U.K Music Week Pop chart with single ‘Is This Love’

Standard

Esther Eden is a new artist signed to Dubai based major label ‘Universal Music Mena’. This single comes with a selection of great club mixes that peaked in the top 10 of the U.K Music Week official Pop chart.

Esther Eden grew up in the UAE, listening to her mother singing along to jazz music and Ella Fitzgerald. With a voice way beyond her years, at the age of 18 now, her vocal maturity has reached a tremendous peak.

Her music journey started off with a life changing experience. In 2014, Jessie J heard Esther performing and filmed the entire performance on her phone.

She also invited Esther to sing her original song at Jessie J’s concert that very evening for an audience of over 10,000 people. A truly inspiring story that hit the headlines and so Esther’s fan base started to develop since then.

At the end of 2015, Universal Music MENA signed a record deal with her to produce and release her new debut album.

Esther Eden was nominated for the Emirates Woman, Woman Of The Year Awards 2016 For the BEST YOUNG TALENT 2016 and has been featured in KhaleejTimes, The National and was given a Full page takeover on iTunes.

Esther’s debut album ‘Solitaire’ was released on November 18 2016 on Universal Music Mena and features the single ” Is this Love”.

Yellow Creatures ‘Spectrum’

Standard

‘Spectrum’ is the third EP from Newcastle based Yellow Creatures.

It follows their 2014 release  ‘The Year of Everything & Nothing’ EP  which saw the band being selected to play the BBC 6 Music Festival in 2015  where they were introduced by Tom Robinson.

Yellow Creatures influences range from current pop and alternative artists such as Tame Impala, Solange and Radiohead to the 1960s Musique Concrete of Delia Derbyshire.

After exploring a more synth-driven direction on their 2015 track ‘Calendar Man’  which was included in The Tipping Point blog and received airplay on BBC Introducing, Spectrum’ is the most developed and experimental record Yellow Creatures have released to date.

The seven songs are a collage of found sounds and pop melodies incorporating field recordings, electronic beats, swelling synths and polyrhythmic drums.

Lyrically  ‘Spectrum’ is dreamy and pensive with frontman Marc Bird exploring themes both personal and universal.

‘Last Census’ is a frenzied  pulsating prophecy of what life might be like after the last-ever census on Earth  while ‘Pressing Buttons’ is a shimmering, euphoric ode to how modern technology affects our personal relationships.

The EP will be available to download from yellowcreatures.bandcamp.com on 27th February and is available now to pre-order along with a free download of lead track ‘Spectrum’

Jack + Ella – Hometown

Standard

Hometown Single Cover

Jack + Ella are a country duo based in London, UK.  Their music is rooted in country, with infectious and catchy pop rock hooks.

Their influences include artists like Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, John Mayer, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line and Taylor Swift.

Both Jack and Ella are rock guitarists at heart and love to integrate the sound of rock n roll and male-female vocal harmonies in their country songs.

Jack + Ella met when they were 16 at a young talent competition that their dads had taken them to. Years later, in May 2016, they re-connected after recognising their musical and personality similarities over social media!

They realised very quickly that their writing and playing styles complimented each other too well for them to keep pursuing their own music without each other – and so their official partnership was formed !

The duo are gearing up to release their debut single ‘Hometown’ on 3 April 2017, with an EP entitled ‘Ready’ to follow two weeks after on 17 April 2017. They will then be playing shows across the UK for the rest of the year as well as starting work towards their first studio album.
