The Breaking Pattern are currently storming Pheonix's rock scene and are readying themselves to make waves globally with their new album 'There are Roadmaps in Our Veins'. A mixture of pop punk, indie and indie rock, the album is a collective arrangement of the bands technical ability.
Citing emo and pop-punk acts such as Real Friends, The Wonder Years, Man Overboard and The Hotelier as influences the band are in a strong position. The album lyrically tackles the theme of failing relationships. Frontman Derek Hackman explains: ‘The album is somewhat of a break-up album, chronicling the various stages of a doomed relationship from the moments leading up to the split until the resolution and recovery. I say “somewhat” because it is not a concept album. The songs do not tell one specific story, but are a compilation of personal experience and the stories I’ve witnessed from friends who had their own hearts disintegrated into red dust.’
Lead track of the album 'Let Love go' demonstrates this, showing just how much this band has to offer and how underappreciated they are. They've got a new video coming soon, but check out the promo here

Johnny Normal of Electro London (whose new vinyl album we recently featured on this site) has also been working on another exciting project on the side – an electronic rework of Adam and the Ants’ 1980 classic Kings of the Wild Frontier.

The project sees Johnny teaming up with former guitarist and founding member of Adam and the Ants, Marco Pirroni. The concept was initially the idea of Adam Ant himself, who supported the project throughout.

As Johnny explains: ‘My version of KOTWF is not meant as a copycat album as we could never improve on such a classic, rather an Ant fan’s homage to the fabulously exciting original record by Adam, Marco and co which had such an impact on my life and the lives of millions of the MTV generation.’

Jo's artistry is sleek Pop-Soul-R&B, evoking Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Beyoncé, Celine Dion and Leona Lewis. As a child, Jo displayed rugged flamboyance, turning every public opportunity into a chance to flaunt her powerful singing and performing skills. Parallel to this outward display of creativity her unbridled expressiveness confounded her parents. "I have always been loud, to the point that my father would as a joke regularly serve a bowl of painkillers to visitors. Although it stopped being funny to me, he always got a laugh," she recalls. The fun party song features an explosively catchy chorus and energetic synth-driven instrumental, produced by Brisbane beat smith Stuart Stuart. Grammy Award winning engineer Bob Ludwig (Madonna, Daft Punk, Coldplay, Nirvana, Train, Mariah Carey, David Bowie) personally quoted the track as “Catchy as Hell”. Australia may be exiting summer right now, but here in the Northern hemisphere it’s right on time! "You can push aside your passions and dreams, but eventually they will scream out to you, and you just have to do what you were meant to do," Jo Cooper It's a new era for Jo Cooper as she is currently building her live profile, releasing her latest single ‘Touch The Sky’ and electrifying audiences with her natural theatricality and honest sensual charms.
Swimming with Pirahana's, the third album release from London based Japanese Fighting Fish, is one to watch. As the title suggests these guys have made something that's very much their own. The band have been working with Tim Young at Air-Edel studios in London, a legend in his own right working with The Beatles and The Clash. The album's title comes from the real life wild experiences of Karlost and drummer Sweetman in Ecuador whilst staying with a Quechan tribe when they took a dip in the Amazon River, so not your usual album inspiration. But there's nothing ordinary about these guys, the new album is a perfect display of their technical ability and charismatic nature. For fans of Royal Blood, The Black Keys, Queens of The Stone Age
Putting his own spin on hip hop Young Malak creates a grungey mixture of hip hop and grime. Reminscent of early Tyler The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt and OFWGKTA Young Malak has set a high bar for himself. 'The Messenger' is his latest mix tape, and is part of his work with The Keys Collective. Title track ‘The Messenger’ is a dark outpouring of feelings set to a spacey beat, whilst ‘Avoid the Vortex’ sees the rapper playing impressively with his flow over a grimy sawtooth-synth beat. The visuals are fittingly trippy. Young Malak explains the source of his introspective lyrics: ‘One point in my life I was lost stuck trying to figure myself out as well as my self-purpose and the more I searched inside myself I began to overtime breakdown my thoughts and feelings to help me remember me. The more you understand your own self the more you will understand this world, and if you can understand this world you realise everything in the universe is one.’
With the original becoming a UK number 1 selling record and winning Best British Album at the Brit Awards, it’s a tall order to take on this new wave masterpiece but the guys do it brilliantly.

It’s one of those situations where the songs become completely new creations of their own as the electro sound transforms the album into a whole new place. This is a really interesting album – it conjures up many different emotions that change with every listen (well for me anyway).

You can hear a promo of it on Johnny Normal’s Soundcloud here:




“Ant Music” achieved platinum certification when it came out – but this adaptation is metallic in an underground ominous way. It’s a stirring version of the legendary song that is definitely worth a listen.


There will be an 'album listening party event' in London on Friday 17th June, tickets and info from http://www.johnnynormal.net/

The album will be released Friday 17th June 2016

New Electronic pop song ‘I’ll Take Care of Myself’ from Andrea Di Giovanni ‘I’ll Take Care of Myself’ is the new fun electronic pop song from Andrea Di Giovanni. The song is inspired by his vitiligo:

‘I started to see vitiligo as my edge and distinctive characteristic of my personality, a strength. I decided to show it in the covert art-work of the single, ‘taking care of myself’ means also the ability to transform what you’ve always considered weaknesses into beautiful strengths.’

Andrea also has an EP ‘Soultrip’ on the way scheduled for release in July.

Inspired by the likes of Michael Jackson, James Brown and Diana Ross, this new ‘princess of DIY pop’ certainly has the making of a star. For one she has an image, sporting a wild hairstyle like no other musician I’ve seen. Secondly and most important, she has the musical talent.

Self-produced, self-written and self-performed, ‘This is What You Get’ sees Linah Is showing off all her versatily with this energetic, infectious dance-pop tune. Diva vocals are matched with a fun nineties-flavoured instrumental.

“I started to think of all the times I’ve been in a relationship with someone who didn’t treat me the way I’d liked to have been treated”, she says, explaining the lyrics.

Watch the video below:

Penny Mob formed with the intention of creating a “new, real, honest rock n roll band with balls”.

Singles ‘Mr Generation’ and ‘War on the Streets’ certainly showcase this. Both are raw and politically charged, taking inspiration from punk and Britpop. The riffs are dirty and the vocals are yelled with a refreshingly Cockney-flavoured inflection.

All in all, Penny Mob are a band that sound like the place they’ve come from.

Aside from making music, lead vocalist Jamie Quinn is also a TV actor. Bassist Matt meanwhile has worked as a technician for several big rock acts including The Rifles, Pete Doherty and Circa Waves.

Synth Wave Volume 1 is a brand new compilation album featuring electronic talent from around the world.

The album challenges the apathetic and predictable current popular music scene and features an array of artists who are regularly championed by the likes of BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing, and Radio X.

‘Synth Wave Volume 1’ has been collated by the team behind the popular Electro London Festival (headlined by ex-Kraftwerk Wolfgang Flür), Analogue Nights and Synthetic City music events: Johnny Normal and Rob Green (The Department) are Electro London Records.

As Rob Green states: ‘Synth music has crept from the shadows (where it has been hiding since the mid-eighties) and is infiltrating even mainstream music these days. The majority of bands in the charts once again have a synthesizer. Synthwave takes it further, continuing the impact made by the early electronic pioneers (Kraftwerk, Human League, Soft Cell, Numan, Ultravox, Visage, John Foxx, with those incredible synthesized machine sounds fused to emotional, anthemic and impactful songs.’
