Is it Tuesday already? That came around far too quickly, where the hell did the weekend go? Never mind, Rormix are here to help you get through the week with their latest selection of 5 great tracks. Why not download the free app? No, I don’t ge any money for this, I’m just doing it because I think they’ve got a great concept. So here are the picks for this week;
Field Report – Home (Leave The Lights On)
Field Report are an American folk-rock group led by Chris Porterfield, former bandmate of Justin Vernon (Bon Iver). Their video ‘Home’ was released yesterday, premiered by the Wall Street journal – and at Rormix we were chuffed to showcase it on its release date! ‘Home’ is proof of the lyrical skills that Porterfield possesses, and expresses his longing to be home with the family he is forced to leave behind whilst pursuing his musical dream.
“Leave the lights on,” he asks, “it might be nighttime when I get there, but I’m on my way home.”
Their new album, ‘Marigolden’ is released on October 7th with Partisan Records, you should definitely all be getting a copy.
SeaWitches – Stars
‘Stars’ is taken from the EP ‘Tear Back the Sky’ by Liverpool based SeaWitches (Jo Herring, Laura Caldwell and Sophie Nicole Ellison). This song was the first song the band ever wrote, and after listening we’re confused as to why it’s taken this long for release. Awe inspiring guitar riffs and lovelorn vocals make this track a must-listen, an the video takes us even further into a SeaWitches inspired dream world.
Black City Lights – Offering
Black City Lights are a duo comprising of producer Calum Robb and vocalist Julia Catherine Parr, and hail from the quiet city of Wellington, New Zealand. It was in March of 2014 that the electro powerhouse released their debut EP ‘Parallels’, and they have been catching international attention since then. They now have an impressive following in the blogisphere and have gained some impressive support slots along the way (Grimes, Baths, Daedalus to name a few). They have recently finished their first UK and Europe tour, with five dates supporting The Naked and Famous, making their live set as polished as their progressive and cinematic recorded sound.
The duo feature four of their videos on the Rormix app after receiving two prestigious New Zealand On Air grants to help with the funding of them. Click on the photos below to watch the videos.
WhiteMoor – On Top Of The World
Whitemoor are a British Indie band originating from Derby in the Midlands. They were formed in 2010 by Barrington Mole (Guitars, Backing Vocals), who enlisted the services of Benny Ryan (Lead Vocals). Luke Inglis (Bass), Tom Scribbins (Drums) and Louise Tomlinson (Keys, Backing Vocals) completed the line up in 2012.
They’ve recently released the brand new album Horizons. This record follows up from the bands critically acclaimed debut self titled album that was released in 2011 and includes the bands recent top 100 download singles ‘High Lights’, ‘All I’ve Ever Known’ and ‘This Is…’ You can find all of these songs on Rormix.
Slydigs – Stiff Upper Lip
2013 saw the rise of Slydigs, the Rock & Roll four piece originating from Warrington, in the North West of England. The release of their debut album ‘Never To Be Tamed’ was met with rave reviews from the press and public alike with Vive Le Rock Magazine giving the album a hearty 9/10, The Big Cheese 4/5 and the NME placing ‘Electric Love’ as one of the ‘5 tracks you must listen to this week’.
The band are renowned for their ability to encapsulate Rock & Roll in its many forms. Their connection with an audience is something that can only been witnessed through the eyes of a crowd member. The live scene has allowed them to express their overwhelming desire to entertain and excite audiences all over the globe.
“Stiff Upper Lip” is the first official single of the EP . The video is directed by John Corrin at Wasp Videos, the same man who is behind the Howard Marks narrated documentary.
