Alice Boman is back with new track and video

25/09/2017

Returning from a self-imposed musical exile following a triumphant run of early releases, haunted Swedish songwriter Alice Boman brings forth new single ‘Dreams’. A bleary-eyed, emotion-packed reflection on the dissolution of hope, it’s a track that’s strengthened by the silence it emerges from. 

For the video Alice decided to head to Vårhallarna, an area of Sweden to which she has a strong personal connection. It was directed by Jeanne Lula Chauveau with art and creative direction by Jeanne Lula Chauveau and Aëla Labbé.

Penning her first EPs while sitting by her grandparents old piano, with nothing but a handheld voice recorder to hand, Alice’s first two releases – 2013’s Skisser EP and 2014’s EP II – were a document of her innermost emotions, pieced together in the sanctum of her teenage home.

“It will be so nice to share what I’ve been doing,” Alice says. “I’m a bit of a perfectionist, but the songs I love the most are far from perfect. I want my songs to feel alive – that’s the magic.”

Gengahr release new single ‘Carrion’ from forthcoming album

21/09/2017

Over two years since the band’s five star-rated debut album ‘A Dream Outside’, the quartet have shared new single ‘Carrion’, the first taster of their upcoming second album.

Speaking about the track in a press release, lead singer Felix Bushe says: “‘Carrion’ is one of the hardest hitting tracks we have written, both musically and lyrically… The track is full of snark and bitterness, but also offers hope and triumph over the oppressive nature of the world we live in today.’

The band have also announced an intimate London show for next month. They’ll play the capital’s Omeara venue on 13th October.

Sampha wins Mercury Prize

18/09/2017

Last night, Sampha was announced as the winner of the 2017 Mercury Prize. The most prestigious award in British music was given to the artist for his phenomenal debut album Process, released back in January.

“It feels amazing,” he said in a press conference following the awards ceremony. “It has taken me a while to feel like I’m emotionally stable enough to write my own record and everyone was so lovely to give me the time to create it. I put my heart and soul into the record and I’m very proud of it. It’s a very internal record and I think that comes across. It’s great to be recognised for that.”

Sampha was one of the very first artists to sign a publishing deal with Beggars Music and the company is very proud to see him reach this incredible milestone in his career.
