The muses of La Musa: Emily Wells

Divus Julius presents: Yard Act

Yard Act formed in Leeds in September 2019 when Ryan Needham found himself temporarily living in’s spare bedroom. Settling into a system of programming, looping and layering, the alchemy between the two created a base from which to build their complex and ever expanding narrative world. 

With just three hometown shows under their belt, world events intervened. But rather than letting the pandemic derail them Yard Act set up their own imprint, Zen F.C. and across the course of 2020 and into early 2021 released four increasingly coruscating, hilariously dark singles.

Now expanded to a four-piece, joined by Sam Shjipstone (guitar) and Jay Russell (drums), they’ve released their debut album “The Overload”. Their inherent wit has been sharpened down into something that speaks to the times we live in, creating a statement of intent that survives on nuance, that manages to poke fun at society without punching down from a place of left-wing superiority or right-wing anger. The Overload is a political record, but in the same way that all great observations of human nature are – a messy, complex, knowingly hypocritical snapshot of our current state of play.

Introducing…Another Michael

Describing Philadelphia trio Another Michael as an indie-pop act is accurate, but it’s also a serious oversimplification. Vocalist/guitarist Michael Doherty, bassist Nick Sebastiano and guitarist/keyboardist Alenni Davis combine a disparate set of influences—including everything from Damien Rice, Bright Eyes, Kanye West and Radiohead to R&B, dance, videogame and classical music—into a compelling debut album. The full-length follow-up to a pair of EPs, 2016’s Sans and 2018’s LandNew Music and Big Pop is the work of a hungry, young band still figuring out what exactly it is they want to say.

The muses of La Musa: Crystal Murray

Crystal Murray‘s work acts as a form of resistance toward predictability. The Paris based singer has found a way to seamlessly intertwine jazz, pulsating trap beats, and buttery smooth vocals to create an enchanting body of work that truly scrapes out such a distinguished lane for herself.
