Davie Furey ‘History’ – Review

Alternative, Music, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

Singer, songwriter Davie Furey is here with his new Celtic themed anthem ‘History’. His latest single serves as a powerful and poignant boost and stirs a sense of courage and morale in anyone listening to it.

Boasting sharp and acute lyricism and inventive instrumentals, he’s not letting anything slow him down and this latest single serves as a battlecry for this message. 

Paying homage to the classics, The Killers, Thin Lizzy, and Horseslips, Davie Furey has managed to put his own spin on ‘History while creatively channelling his inspirations. 

The track pushes a narrative concerned with confidence and positivity, an iconic anthem that would fit perfectly into a large crowd setting. Furey’s smooth, husky vocals fit perfectly within the arrangement with the opening procession and the striking guitars placed front and centre. With this Furey given ample room to play.

It’s clear Davie Furey will continue to push the boundaries and stick to the beat of his own drum. As he continues to genre-bend and blend classic influences into something great.  

‘History’ is available on all streaming platforms now!

Introducing: the Powerhouse that is YNES

Alternative, Punk, Singer-Songwriter

If you haven’t heard of YNES by now… you’re welcome. The fiery songwriter takes on the style of 00s pop with a post-punk style and attitude. 

YNES’ greatest skill as an artist has always been in combining DIY artist energy with sharp and witty lyricism.

Her  single ‘Better Job’ featured her fearless critique and resentment towards zero-hours contract culture, backed by mammoth guitars and extremely high energy drums. 

A lyric that really stands out to me from this track has to be: ‘A better job one where I can wear a tie to work but I’m a woman so It’ll have to be a miniskirt’.  

This whole song showcases what a talented songwriter Ynes is as she takes on current issues in an intelligent yet witty way with her lyrics. 

On the last single God’s Little Punching Bag, YNES further embraces imperfections with help from her razor sharp tongue. 

For all the instrumentals’ liveliness, it is YNES’ vocal performance that steals the show. She is a force of charisma, ‘call me what I call myself, some desperate overgrown rebel, just don’t call me ever again,’ she intones. It is this willingness to treat contradictions with a smirk rather than a shrug that gives God’s Little Punching Bag its instantly replayable charm.

Be sure to check out YNES and thank me later 

The Fabulous Red Diesel Set To Please Fans With New EP ”The Queensbury House Sessions.”

Jazz, Singer-Songwriter, Soul

Beyond the theatrics of make-up that’s just a little extra; peacock-feather ‘n’ tie dye shirts and a rainbow emitting disco ball lies a voice with the call of the sirens and a hot handle on the blues”

Debbie Bourke, Jazz Journalist

A Husband and Wife on drums, a transgender trumpeter and double-bassist; a synth player and a guitarist named Rabbi Jaffa Delicious. Different? Yes. Unconventional? Yes. Good Music? Absolutely!

Ms Kitty (Kat Lee-Ryan),  Duke Boom (Will Lee-Ryan) on drums; Miss Bea-Have (Beatrice Gullick) and Rabbi Jaffa Delicious (Simon Dobell) have built a loyal fanbase through the fusion classic 60s soul with jazz arrangements and a rhythm section which can skip from hip-hop beats to Latin to funk.

The band shouldn’t be underestimated either as they have worked with the likes of The James Taylor Quartet, Skunk Anansie and Jeff Buckley. Their new EP – a sixteen track project – was recorded in just one take at a disused office block, un-ironically called the Queensbury House.

The record’s lead single ‘Butterfly Mind’ is a beautiful mix of smokey jazz and swooning soul, and a real testament to true love.

It’s about the way my brain works and the way music flits from one person to another, changing their perception (hopefully for the better) by tiny inspirational touches. And then it’s also a love song – I am married to the drummer and I’m saying no matter how many twists and turns and expansions my mind has, I am always grounded in him – you know I’ve got a butterfly mind but I settle on you ‘’

Kat Lee-Ryan

Any Listener can be pleasantly surprised by the music video accompanying this track. Based in a live studio, visuals set the scene with beautiful strobe lights and colours, certain to put anyone in a tranquil mood. As well as soothing vocals, the butterflies flying across the screen are a nice touch bringing it all together.

The ‘Butterfly Mind’ Video can be watched here:

No Limit To InHibit: Alt Rock Artist Releases New Single, The Quest.

Alternative, Experimental, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

When you first lay eyes on this very abstract and insightful music video by the ever-challenging artist Inhibit, you are faced with a black screen that fades into a face full of scars. A frightening thought, right?

Describing himself primarily as a poet, Inhibit has studied the piano since he was five years old. Based in Brussels, the 21-year-old boasts an unusual background as a former racing driver and qualified lawyer – highly retrospective of his peculiar and unpredictable style of music.

Plastered with scars on his face and his back, ‘The Quest’ depicts Inhibit as a complete outsider who walks around a city wearing a mask though, upon revelation of his true face, everyone he approaches turns and runs in disgust.

Hurtling towards 400,000 YouTube views in less than one month, ‘The Quest’ sees InHibit examining the hypocritical reactions of those around him to his real persona, when how he is treated when not hidden behind a mask.

Watch the Eye-Popping Video to The Quest here: 

Composed by the artist himself and featuring his keyboard and vocal skills, the video too was his own creation, featuring his own scarification designs and storyboard. His first book is to be released shortly, as well as a collection of his poetry.

MeMe Detroit Return as “Mean Rock n Rollers” in New Single

Rock, Rock n Roll, Singer-Songwriter

MeMe Detroit’s new single brings about the classic sounds and angry vibes that you would typically get in an archetypal ‘Rock n Roll’ song.

Describing it as a ”Calling” and a ”Deep Lifestyle” within the lyrics, ‘Mean Rock n Roller’ was written as an anthem to anyone who feels pressurised to adapt and conform to societal ideals.

Mean Rock N Roller is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek song that we had written as a bit of fun but at the same time says ‘fuck you’ to the limiting beliefs that are pressed on us by society as we grow up. You can basically be, do or have anything you want in life when you put your mind to it, so never settle. It’s pointless”.

MeME DETROIT

Mean Rock n Roller can be streamed below:

With 200 gigs under her belt, MeMe Detroit has become known for her highly energetic, immense and furious live shows. However, even away from the live scene MeMe, alongside drummer Kallum McEwen, are still able to give quality music and entertainment for their fans.

They are currently rallying their fans to help put together a music video, whilst keeping them entertained with a constant supply of new music via exclusive streams on social media.

MeMe Detroit continue to gain traction within the UK music scene as they have managed to land regular airtime on Kerrang! Radio, Janice Long’s show on BBC Radio Wales and have been picked for Fresh on the Net’s ‘Fresh Faves.’
