Edith; ‘I Kinda Liked You’

Edith; ‘I Kinda Liked You’

"...you don't need anyone's approval to be who you truly are." Ryan Foster interviews up and coming cool queen, Edith, whose new single - 'I Kinda Liked You' - is out now. Already getting Mabel, Halsey, Lany and Dua Lipa comparisons, Edith is emerging as a musical talent in a (polished) league of her own. Aged ten, she moved from Romania to England to pursue her music career; singing, playing guitar and piano. Edith started writing songs to be able to deal with, and express her feelings about her life. "Wanting people of all ages and genders to listen to my music and be able to relate to it. I think we all go through the same emotions, love, hate, pain, and we think we are the only ones, but…

The Music Walk Of Fame is Good News.

Spring 2020 positivity: The Music Walk of Fame has recently honoured the icon, Amy Winehouse. Her family and celebrity guests gave their tributes to one of Camden's very own. The global star was honoured as the third (augmented reality!) stone on The Music Walk of Fame in Camden. Industry's mover shaker, Heather Minx, was there to report on something very close to this documentary's heart. Icon and Innovator stones have also been laid in honour of The Who, Madness and Soul II Soul. One of the world's most powerful, inventive vocalists, songwriters (and charismas), in her short, but multi award winning career, Amy performed and released a string of extraordinary songs - included two perfect albums: 'Frank' and 'Back To Black'. https://youtu.be/TJAfLE39ZZ8 Amy Winehouse has left her spirit in millions…

SARA – Lovable Maybe. Interview

SARA graces 2020 with a spectacularly special slice of alternative pop - 'Lovable Maybe' - and a conversation with Kelly Munro for TheZineUK. Kelly: Tell us how long you’ve been making music... Sara : "I think I wrote my first (albeit terrible) song when I was twelve – so I guess it’s been eleven years now!" What’s been some of your highlights so far on your musical journey? "The first thing that springs to mind is last May when I had my first experience of recording in an actual studio. It really hit home that I could have big ideas and didn’t have to limit myself, and it was just nice to feel confident. Another highlight is playing my first London show and hearing my manager say we had really…

False Heads – it’s ALL there!

False Heads – it’s ALL there!

False Heads step up a chapter with their debut album, the roughly hewn and smoothly executed 'It's All There But You're Dreaming'. This three-headed East End gang have built momentum towards this LP, while turning the heads of key entertainment biz shakers with classic ROCK that is very English and International simultaneously. "Even though it's aggressive, it's delicate which is exactly what we wanted." (False Heads) A dozen soul worms from a band of our times. Ah, our times... The last few years have relegated the "GB" of Great Britain to Gammon Brexitannia. The Resistance, apocalypse punx, soundtrack our slow motion descent into second world farce and bogroll battles. We are through the fucking rabbit hole. Luckily, so are our bands! https://youtu.be/KQ_ZLrZekSs False Heads have worked hard to reach the…

BOLLOX

"Guitars bands are over". "Rocking at festival's can't be diverse". "It's impossible to be competitive AND collaborative". "Career worthy bands are NOT found in small venues these days". (Also, a belief that fascism's global sociopathic ingreeding is "government" and we should divide because war = business). To all of the above, I say Utter Fucking Bollocks. Manchester, #YANAfest street art 2014 "guitars are dead" said couch critics. Small venue gig lovers started Music Venue Trust, Independent Venue Week and TheZineUK documentary. All genres keep buzzing - i.e. Clit Rock - throughout austerity. Not many working class/all the genitals were buzzing on festivals bills around then, though. It's 2020. Art Power Movements! This Feeling have given SO many opportunities last few years, fresh forces like Modern Age Music (now with added…

Good Days : "We (Eric Ronick and Michael Cannova) met in 2015 in New York’s Lower East Side. " "Around the end of 2016 we started hanging out in the studio. By the beginning of 2017 we had finished our first song together and after that summer we had finished five songs and had an EP in our hand. All we needed now was a name. We talked a lot about wanting to put some good out into the world. Something that might encourage, inspire and even make someone feel loved. We wanted the world to…
