We sat down with the guys of Timeflies and they told us about their new EP, Warning Signs plus Cal talks about who he would like to golf with and Rez dishes on how he would react meeting Taylor Swift. Watch it all in the video above!
Their EP, Warning Signs is available now on iTunes. Download here.
China Rats, made up of Graeme Thomson (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Luke Smith (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Jedidiah Allcock (Bass/Vocals) and George Riley (Drums), got their big break when they got to play the European festival, BENICASSIM. Initially asked to play a smaller stage the day before, they were bumped up to the main stage when Bat for Lashes cancelled. This was a success for the band and the festival alike.
The rock band formed in Leeds in 2011 and released their debut EP To Be Like I on Once Upon A Time Records in UK. Now China Rats is set to release their U.S. debut single in March 2013 followed by a performance at SXSW. Not bad for a band who have only been around for a year.
Their track, “To Be Like I”, is definitely an attention getter. Watch the video for it below:
New Zealand’s Gin Wigmore released her Mercury Records debut single, “Man Like That” this month. It’s the first single off her Man Like That EP and it’s featured in the Heineken TV spot promoting the new James Bond film, Skyfall. She has gone multi-Platinum in her home country and now she’s getting ready to release her sophomore album, Gravel & Wine in the US early next year. Gin recorded the album in Santa Monica, CA with producer Butch Walker (Pink, Cee-Lo, Katy Perry, Gavin DeGraw).
“Man Like That” is insanely catchy and Gin Wigmore has an old soul sound mixed with that raspy rocker grit that you don’t want to miss out on. Some may want to compare her to a young British artist that is no longer with us, but that just wouldn’t be fair to either of them. For the visually inclined, the music video has that retro meets modern feel that works very well with the song. See for yourself above.
We’ve posted a couple of songs before from Meg Myers, but now she has released her Daughter In The Choir EP. You can download it for free at her official website or stream it at Soundcloud. It’s definitely worth it and if you haven’t already seen it, check out her music video for her track, “Monster”, above.
