BARBARA – Release New Single: “A Perishing of Cherished Things” + Announce Live Dates w/ Divine Comedy This Spring
A masterclass in nuanced, nostalgic pop beamed-in from another era, the track is the Brighton duo’s first release of 2022 and hints to a band with the brightest of futures.
Balancing deceptively complex arrangements with a playfully colourful narrative, think Todd Rundgren teaming-up with the Alessi Brothers for a re-imagination of The Beatles’ “Ob-la-di, ob-la-da”.
Son de Ébano Orquesta presenta su nuevo tema “El Negro Carabalí”
La agrupación colombiana Son de Ébano Orquesta, liderada por Ever Zapata quien es el cantante, compositor, productor y arreglista, acaba de lanzar al mercado su nuevo corte musical que lleva por nombre “El Negro Carabalí”.
Una canción que narra la historia de un personaje popular que le encanta la música y la rumba. En su barrio lo conocen como “El Negro Carabalí” y es quien enciende las fiestas con el sabor de su baile y el swing al tocar el Tres cubano que es un derivado de la Guitarra y este tiene su origen de las zonas rurales del Oriente cubano, además este instrumento se destaca por su excelente sonido.
THE SHIPBUILDERS – New Single: “The Moon” || Out Now
The Shipbuilders exist as a melting pot where the surreal meets the sublime. Since releasing their first EP, ‘Something in the Water’ in 2016, the band have continuously expanded their sound and scope of influences to create a world where sparkling pop wonders are nestled between Spanish Civil War laments, gypsy arias, and chaotic, shambolic odes to drinking, death and everything in between. All of this is done with added lashings of melody and the writings of Garcia Lorca and James Joyce, dictating that the wonder of the beauty of the world – and beyond – is never overlooked.

Papercuts shares “Lodger” video & announces EU / UK tour dates w/ Still Corners
“The song had a slight 60s pop inspiration, and I wanted to see if I could pull off a freakout in the middle that felt like an epiphany. Lyrically it’s inspired by a memory of feeling like a fling is just sort of passing through your life, and wondering if thats all you are to them.“ -Jason Quever
