Music by Bergman: Easy Life

Leicester-based indie/R&B group Easy Life walk a line between indie pop and hip-hop, crafting mellow melodic jams brimming with catchy hooks.

With their highly-anticipated debut album ‘life’s a beach’ arriving on 4th June via Island Records,  Easy Life  are giving us the newest glimpse of what gems to expect with new vibey track ‘skeletons’.

Introducing… Chubby and the Gang

West London five-piece Chubby and the Gang are balanced by two energies. For every moment of punk imperfection, there’s an intricate flurry of detail!

Made up of musicians from across the consistently thriving and criminally overlooked UK hardcore scene, Chubby and the Gang marinate its characteristic speed and sick-of-it-all energy in a mixture of 50s pop sounds. The result is a prickly take on the older, more melodic genres that punk derives from, chewing them up and spitting them out into something mangled but revitalised.

Through sheer force of strength, their debut album Speed Kills pummelled its way out of the local hardcore scene and across the Atlantic, where it was met with a landslide of critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and Rolling Stone.

Now, they have unleashed their brand new single ‘Lightning Don’t Strike Twice’, which will be part of a double A-side 7” with new’un ‘Life’s Lemons’ released on 28th May via Partisan.

4Ever Songs: Van Morrison “Brown Eyed Girl”

50 years ago, Van Morrison entered the studio to record a track which – even after more than 35 studio albums – remains one of the most popular songs in his catalog.

Produced by Bert Berns and written by Morrison himself, “Brown Eyed Girl” – which was recorded at A&R Studios in New York City – originally began life under the title “Brown-Skinned Girl,” a nod to the calypso sound which had inspired him whilst composing the track.

Whatever Morrison’s thoughts may be on “Brown Eyed Girl,” it proved to be his first top-10 in the States, helping to establish his identity to the public in the wake of leaving his band, Them. That’s nothing to sneeze at.

The muses of La Musa: Foxes

Foxes, whose real name is Louisa Rose Allen, was thrust into the grinding machine that is the pop music industry. After two albums’ worth of writing, releasing, and touring, she needed a break.

Her absence was certainly felt. But if her recent releases have been any indication, the hiatus was well worth the wait. After returning from her three year hiatus, Foxes is sharing her latest track ‘Friends In The Corner’.
