So after my supposed ‘holiday’ plans went a little awry due to my inability to read/use a calendar correctly this weekend has seen me take something of a staycation. I hate that word too, sorry. I’ve been listening to literally hundreds of submissions and, as of this moment, have written nothing. Except that. And that. Anyway, I’m prepping everything for the next few weeks and where better to start than with another top batch of Rormix picks. Yes, they’re still sending me some top sounds – I can’t figure out why… Enough rambles, here are this week’s 5 for you to click and watch;
Freezabox – The Truth
Todays featured artist is Freezabox, He started back in May of 2009 and is based out of London, however decided that the hustle and bustle of the capital was effecting his ability to write new music. So, he shut up shop and embarked on a 6 month trip to Antarctica to inspire himself. Now that is dedication.
Alias Kid – Revolution Sometime
Manchester band Alias Kid have gone from strength to strength after forming less than a year and a half ago. The band fuses 60’s style anthems with an eclectic mix of influences from the 1970’s to the present day, creating a sound that is at once familiar and yet still unique. These guys seem set for big things.
Violent Mae – Worn Out My Welcome
VIOLENT MAE (Becky Kessler & Floyd Kellogg) was never intended to be a band. Becky asked Floyd to record and produce her first solo album, and as soon as they hit the studio, chemistry and dynamics between the two sparked the evolution of an artistic partnership. Now, the duo are working on recording their second full-length set for release later in 2015.
Prinze George – Upswing
Prinze George is Naomi Almquist, Kenny Grimm and Isabelle De Leon, who are based in Brooklyn. Naomi and Kenny grew up together in Prince George’s County, MD, where they met Isabelle while she was in college. Naomi’s vocals make for Prinze George to soar above the majority of female-led electro-pop.
Hippo Campus – Souls
Hippo Campus is Nathan Stocker, Whistler Allen, Jake Luppen and Zach Sutton. Although this four-piece indie rock band are barely even out of high school, they manage to write some of the catchiest indie-rock songs I’ve heard in a long time. The guys met while attending a performing arts school, but decided to forget the competition and work together in the form of Hippo Campus in the summer of 2013.
