Tribazik -Tools Of Mass Creation

535453_10151331998037613_172851658_n

Swiftly following the acclaimed success of their recent album Data Warfare, UK band Tribazik unleash their new gripping and contagion fuelled single, Tools Of Mass Creation. The closing track on their outstanding full-length, the song is an emotion and thought provoking tempest of sound and adventure, reinforcing the potential and creative emprise shining within the London based trio.

Formed by Jerry Kandiah (vocals/guitar) and Hedge Seel (drums/samples), Tribazik has grown into one of Britain’s most inventive and formidable prospects, Data Warfare their coming of age and the suspected spark to a world spotlight upon their ingenious mix of sounds. Sculpting an individual presence through the merger of genres such alternative rock, psychedelic metal, industrial, techno and much more, the band grabbed the attention of Killing Joke bassist Paul Raven from the release of the single Yang To Yin alone. The song led to the invitation and supporting of Killing Joke on two European tours as well as Jaz Coleman guesting on a track on Tribazik’s Andy Gill (Gang of Four) mixed debut album All Blood is Red in 2009. From there the pair became a trio with the recruitment of Syan and subsequently the creation and release of the self-produced and Youth (Killing Joke, The Orb, The Verve) mixed Date Warfare earlier this year. It is a fiercely flavoured tempest of imagination drenched sound and inventive force managing to cast a mix of early Killing Joke, Pendulum, Pitchshifter, The Prodigy, and Red Beat, whilst sculpting something new and invigoratingly distinct to Tribazik. Now Tools Of Mass Creation is ready to stir up another incitement for the album and itself, an aim as with its source release hard to imagine failing to achieve success.

The single harasses ears from its first breath, rhythms rapping with thick sinews on the senses whilst guitars blaze with a raw causticity to their riffs and hooks. The gothic harmonies of Syan glance across the turbulent air of the track soon after whilst beneath, the track roars with aggression and antagonistic intensity. It then relaxes into a more merciful embrace, the mellow tones of Syan snuggling closer to the ear as Kandiah unveils the narrative with his captivating voice. It is a smouldering passage prone to forceful eruptions of sonic energy and blazing passion musically and vocally. There is an unavoidable essence to Killing Joke to the track, as well as a tasty tinge of Fear Factory, but as it brawls and seduces body and emotions, the song sets down an individual character and beauty to the fury which belongs solely to its creators.

Tools Of Mass Creation is a riveting and mouth-watering furnace of sound and enterprise, the perfect doorway for those still not infected by the exciting presence of Tribazik, to dive into their glorious depths.

Tools Of Mass Creation is available on September 24th

Tribazik have confirmed a special single release party at London’s Islington Academy 2 on September 24th. To celebrate the single release of Tools Of Mass Creation, the band have promised ‘A storming show with full visual onslaught’

The Slow Readers Club – Don’t Mind

Picture 34

The successor to the exceptional single Start Again which was re-released a few short weeks back, UK band The Slow Readers Club bring another absorbing treat with Don’t Mind, a song reinforcing all the temptation and qualities offered by the previous release. The new proposition is a fascinating persuasion, a melodic embrace coloured by an emotive lyrical narrative and just as potently expressive vocals.

The Manchester indie/electro band is certainly no stranger to acclaim and eager support, their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album finding attention from radio and TV shows alike, whilst their striking videos have equally garnered enthused responses with Block Out The Sun being highlighted on Coldplay’s website. With endorsement from Peter Hook coming this year as well as the reboot of the impressive Start Again, The Slow Readers Club is striding towards an even more potent spotlight, a lure set to be drawn closer by the magnetic persuasion of Don’t Mind.Picture 33

Themed by the end of a relationship and the void left in the world of the one left behind, the single instantly casts an evocative caress of melodies alongside warm expressive vocals from Aaron Starkie. It is a gentle and mesmeric opening, the intricate touch of guitar from Kurtis Starkie blending twin strains of sonically poetic ideation to enhance the swiftly settled and elegant balladry of the song. The bass of James Ryan adds a similarly magnetic shadow to the radiant canvas of the encounter whilst the crisp and unassuming beats of drummer David Whitworth make a firm yet unimposing frame for the tantalising colours elsewhere to entwine around. Thoughts of Black/ Colin Vearncombe come to mind at times as Don’t Mind serenades the senses whilst lyrically there is an intimacy which is easy to relate to, much as the tantalising sounds.

A simmering and more reserved song than its predecessor, the single leaves a warm and vivacious glow in ears and imagination, coaxing body and emotions to hungrily share its enterprise. The Slow Readers Club is one of the UK’s brightest propositions and songs like Don’t Mind only suggest that they have the potential to make that a worldwide recognition.

Don’t Mind is available September 22nd @ https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/dont-mind-single/id913241698

Paddy Clegg – Dancing Shoes

Picture 43

A song which can be best described as a melodic smile, Dancing Shoes the new single from UK singer songwriter Paddy Clegg reinforces why there has been a healthy buzz brewing up around the17 year old. Simple yet skilfully crafted, the single is a refreshing flirtation for feet, ears, and emotions with little more in its intent than to have and give fun.

From Huyton in Liverpool, Clegg at his tender age had already earned good experience from drumming in previous bands but deciding to take up another instrument in the guitar, he began writing and composing his own songs, recording them in his bedroom before stepping out in the Liverpool live scene and surrounding areas. Earlier this year he unveiled his debut single Back To The Start which was met with praise and focus, with his music drawing comparisons to the likes of The La’s, Newton Faulkner, Jake Bugg, and Mumford & Sons. Dancing Shoes now has its moment to push the reputation and presence of the young artist further and it is hard to expect anything other than another wave of potent attention for it.

Dancing Shoes does not make an overly striking or dramatic start, a gentle strum of guitar making a melodic caress which is soon joined by the potent tones of Clegg and punchy beats. It is a track though which seems to grow before and in ears, a dark bass line and a slightly more energetic intent to the drums helping broaden its weight and lure so that before you know it the song has seduced and recruited eager assistance from feet and vocal chords. A great blaze of brass adds to the increasing colour of the song whilst the vocals of Clegg similarly increase in potency and engaging hues. It is a smart and infectious slice of songwriting and musical invention with only the fact that at only two and a half minutes long, just as you are stretching muscles and limbs for an excited sortie on the dance floor, it stops.

Keep them wanting more is a wise old piece of advice and Clegg certainly does that with Dancing Shoes. It is another hint at the potential of Paddy Clegg and his music, an emerging proposition which so far has make a very show go of an obvious talent.

Dancing Shoes is available now via Twin City Records @ https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/dancing-shoes-single/id915386236

Teenage Wildlife – The Last Great Love Affair/ Most Beautiful Thing

photograph by John Wright

Teenage Wildlife is the musical project of renowned British film maker and photographer John Wright. Based in Shoreditch, the multi-instrumentalist has been making music for years alongside his visual work, creating pieces which have been used by Fendi and Dior whilst his photography has been employed by the likes of Louis Vuitton, Dior, GQ, Vanity Fair, and Sony Music. Wright created Teenage Wildlife for his musical side and expression whilst using the funds raised by this side of his talent to support charities that help underprivileged young people, the artist himself coming from a background which can be described as the same. September 1st saw the release of his new double A-sided single, The Last Great Love Affair/ Most Beautiful Thing, two melodically charming and electronically infused songs which without lighting fires make for a captivating and richly enjoyable proposition.

The Last Great Love Affair is a shimmering flight of melodies and soft vocals wrapped in a mesmeric embrace which either gently caresses ears or come in a feistier flame of enterprise. It is an instantly pleasing encounter, its electronic twists and temptation as intriguing as the mellow sounds hugging the senses. Warm and creatively smiling, the track is like a mix of Scritti Politti and China Crisis, a smouldering transfixing breeze which takes the imagination on an emotive summer cruise through melody coloured waters.

The accompanying Most Beautiful Thing, which is sung by an unnamed female vocalist, is a less mesmeric track but to be fair no less enticing for ears. Also carrying a gentle smouldering in its belly rather than a fire, the song is electronic pop and R&B rolled into a pleasing and elegant croon of sound and vocal emotion. Impressively crafted and gracefully attractive, the song merges jazz spiced keys and sultry melodies which in turn clasps the romantic tone of the vocals. It does not quite match the potency of The Last Great Love Affair but still leaves thoughts engrossed and satisfaction beaming.

Both songs intrigue and avoid simply feeding expectations to make for a release which does not startle but lingers welcomingly and rewardingly. With great causes also benefitting from the release, this is a single worthy of intensive attention.

Most Beautiful Thing/The Last Great Love Affair is available now @ https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/most-beautiful-thing-last/id913694600

Red Rose Empire – The Ballad of Blondie

1233373_626129310740927_102990556_n

The Ballad of Blondie is a fascinating single, a song which gently spins through flavours and emotions whilst creating one thoroughly rousing and thrilling proposition. Bred by the inventive craft of UK acoustic rock band Red Rose Empire, and taken from their recently released album You’ve got Red on you, the single grips ears and imagination with cinematic vivacity and emotional intimacy to provide an intensely provocative persuasion.

Hailing from London, the trio of vocalist/acoustic guitarist Paul Claxton, bassist Rick Keating, and drummer Paul Rowland has drawn strong attention and praise through You’ve got Red on you and it is easy to see why if it matches the potent incitement of The Ballad of Blondie. The song opens with a swing of folkish revelry, guitar and bass uniting for a smiling intro framed by firm rhythms. The lively opening then relaxes into a gentle caress with Claxton providing an emotive croon, vocally and with strings, which is aligned to the hazy charm of the bass and shuffling beats. There is a drama to the change though, especially in the vocals, which ebbs and flows before erupting in the blaze of the chorus. Chords twang and vocals soar as a sultry climate bursts over the narrative before the song returns to its more peaceful suasion, though again it is just the coaxing prelude to another fiery breath of sound and passion.

The song continues to drift and roar as the landscape of its evocative theme continues providing a riveting adventure. Warm yet haunted, the song is a masterful and thrilling proposition which not only seduces for itself but sparks the want to check out the album it comes from. If Ballad of Blondie epitomises the potential and invention of Red Rose Empire then they have a very healthy and successful horizon ahead of them.

Ballad of Blondie is available now @ http://redroseempire.bandcamp.com/track/the-ballad-of-blondie

Johnny Wore Black – A Cut Above

jwbnew1-hires

Earlier this year, UK band Johnny Wore Black released the exceptional album Walking Underwater Pt. 1, a fiery slab of melodic rock drawing on numerous other vital musical essences to present a thoroughly provocative and thrilling adventure. With second album Walking Underwater Pt. 2 on the near horizon, the solo project of London based songwriter/producer Johnny Jay has chosen September 1st to unveil the first single and teaser from the upcoming encounter. A Cut Above is another compelling exploration of sound and emotive textures by the former Hollywood stuntman, one easily suggesting that the new album will be more than a match for its predecessor and another irresistibly exciting proposition for us all. A-Cut-Above-temp

     A Cut Above sees Jay recruit the bass skills and creative presence of Megadeth bassist David Ellefson once again whilst the song, as the previous album and other releases, is produced by Grammy Award winning producer David Bottrill. There is a certain emotive intensity which seems to brew when the three come together, as shown of the first part of Walking Underwater and the new single is no different. Themed by and taking thoughts into ‘an internal war torn journey of lost love and betrayal’, the single embraces the imagination as potently as it does ears to provide a rigorously captivating incitement.

The song opens with an emotive melody as a guitar gently entices attention to its instantly intriguing narrative. Around it a climate of unrest and intensity is brewing which in league with the equally growing richness of the opening coaxing, leads into an incendiary eruption of almost predatory riffs and punchy beats courted by the throaty weight and texture of Ellefson’s bass. Swiftly joined by the melodic tones of Jay’s always impressive vocals and developing a contagious stride to its persuasion, the song is a dramatic tempest of anthemic resourcefulness around the constant impassioned emotion and angst of the track. As evidenced by previous singles and songs, Jay has a skilled prowess in merging rousing riffs and hooks with intense and dramatic landscapes musically and atmospherically. A Cut Above is another stirring example and arguably his most potent fusion yet, the track from its first immersive note right to its evocative last, an emotionally dark yet vivacious emprise.

If the single is an example of what to expect from Walking Underwater Pt. 2, then it cannot come soon enough and British melodic rock is in for another stirring shot in the arm.

A Cut Above is available on September 1st

Bite The Shark – First Blood

10376050_236600699868403_4851724489118775155_n

With a sound as snappy and hungry as their band name suggests, Bite The Shark have made one impressive and attention grabbing entrance with debut single First Blood. Consisting of three songs which roar and swagger with a muscular rock tenacity and punk ferocity, the release is an adrenaline charged juggernaut of rock ‘n’ roll. If you are looking for music unafraid to get dirty whilst spilling bodily fluids then letting Bite The Shark and its single clamp its jaws on you could be one of the wisest moves you make this year.

Hailing from Manchester, the UK band only formed in the early days of 2014 and has swiftly drawn a healthy attention and fan base their way. The recently released First Blood equally took no time in garnering acclaim and more, its success leading to an invitation to the trio of Rory O’Grady and brothers Adam and Edd Langmead, to record with Romesh Dodangoda (Motörhead, Bullet For My Valentine, Twin Atlantic) this September. Like the music within the single, it is fair to say that Bite The Shark is on a charge.

Gas & Air right away tells you all you need to know about its creators, rugged riffs immediately sizing up ears before welcoming imposing rhythms and spicy grooves. It is a striking entrance which is as bold in its presence as it is addictive Microsoft Word - bitesuarez.docxin its explosive enterprise. Elements of Turbonegro and Buckcherry whisper across the raucous adventure as well as spillages of old school punk rock, all resulting in a richly flavoursome and highly anthemic stomp. Hooks and increasingly infectious grooves continue to enslave ears and emotions whilst vocally the band provides a captivating call and brawl of passion drenched energy. The song seems to be the one the band’s fans has grasped to their hearts the most and it is easy to see why as it flirts and romps around the senses.

For us though it is Burn em to the ground (sometimes seemingly just called Burn) which ignites the biggest lust. The track is a beast of an encounter, its opening prowl of beats and bass grooving irresistible and only added to by the sonic squall from the almost belligerent invention of the guitar. Lyrically and musically the song has a snarl and attitude which finds its seeds in bands like The Clash and Stiff little Fingers, whilst its addictive grooves and rapier like swings of rhythms infuses a hard rock riot into its predation. Politically powered and lyrically accusing with a weight of sound and tenacity to back it up, the track is immense and the seal to believing Bite The Shark is definitely going places with the potential to make a lingering mark.

The single is completed by the acoustic track Ms. Ratshit, a song with a swing to it that is bordering on rockabilly and vocals which simply captivate. Based on One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, it is another contagious stomp to cast praise and ardour over.

Do expect to hear a lot about Bite the Shark ahead and if you are wise you will jump on board their ascent right away with First Blood.
