Lead Tracks: 'Calma, Calma', 'On and On'
"It's as if Simple Minds had a baby with Depeche Mode and Placebo!"
Pamela Chelin (Rolling Stone, Spin, LA Weekly, LA Times)
Hailing from Montreal, Canada, Icicle's second album 'Theorems' is released on September 15, 2015.
This follow-up solo record consists of twelve very strong and personal compositions created during an exceptionally intense period for the artist. It bounces between rock and pop, accessible and innovative yet open and defiant.
As Icicle, Krassy Halatchev has charmed Canadian and international audiences for over two decades following his defection from communist Bulgaria with the band The Clouds.
From 1996 to 2012, he was a core member of the Montreal-based band Chiwawa, a group that had some success touring as well as collaborating on various film and video projects.
While 'Theorems' marks his second solo release, Halatchev's team spirit has closely tied him together with Florida based poet Joel Jenkins who wrote lyrics for some of the songs. The merging of the cultural and expressive styles has brought forward a work that is both unique yet familiar. On and On, the albums second single, is a perfect example for their remarkable collaboration.
Fans can pre-order 'Theorem's on BandCamp starting August 1st, 2015 It will also be available starting September 15th from every major online retailer.

Dark Around the Eyes
31 August 2015
'Dark Around the Eyes' is the latest release from Orange Vision, a band firmly in the ascendant having already enjoyed support from Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1 and Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music as well as earning coveted support slots for Superfood and Honeyblood on the NME New Breed Tour.
The four-piece from Oxford, influenced by post punk, glam and shoegaze, produce reverb drenched, melodic pop anthems with a new wave edge.
Formed two years ago when Ed and Matthew bonded over a love of clothes, music and a generally delinquent approach to their depressing surroundings and sapped music scene, they were later joined by Daniel and Jake. The band became a primary focus and what started as a driving growling rock and roll sneer has blossomed into a post punk psychedelic new wave dream.
Edmund Quigley - Lead Vocals/Guitar
Jacob Mott - Backing Vocals/Drums
Matthew Holford - Lead Guitar
Daniel Jones - Bass Guitar
We were bowled over by their soundcloud track How You Feel, which combines new wave guitars with a nifty spoken-word interlude featuring a lost Marc Bolan interview
Matt Wilkinson, NME
They have the look and feel of a great 90s bands like Pulp and Kula Shaker, but with galloping doses of The Horrors and The Cure
It has already been a great year for Merky, with performances in Norway, Czech Republic, France, Croatia (Outlook) & Finland as well as numerous sets in the UK, Merky ACE has recently found himself glossing the pages of US mag, Rollacoaster and UK Vogue after performing at London Fashion Week with Red Bull & Topshop x Nasir Mahzar.
The final release off the 3 track EP will be ‘Late Night Vibes’ featuring fellow Family Tree member, TKO and up and coming East London MC, Cadell. So make sure you look out for that, plus the video to 'No Sky', which is dropping this week via SBTV.

TAKEN FROM THE FORTHCOMING ALBUM NOTHING IS ENOUGH
26 year old South London grime artist Sketchman, aka Charles Hazell, has announced the release of Paramount the first single from his debut album Nothing Is Enough.
Released, on Sketchman’s own Uncle Albert Records, Paramount comes after his previous efforts achieved nationwide radio airplay – namely a week-long playlisting, backed by BBC Introducing on Radio 1Xtra. While interview by DJ Target, Sketchman described the new album to be “more story telling… real life experience”, elaborating that it would document his journey as an independent artist in the music industry.
Paramount sees Sketchman deliver multisyllabic rhyming, over his signature blend of live instruments and electronic drum patterns. Aside from lead vocal and production from Sketchman, the album features additional vocals and 12-sting acoustic guitar from singer/songwriter Chloe Ray. It also features bass guitar from Sam NSQ and has been mixed and mastered by veteran sound engineer Danny C.
Paramount is largely about the escape to be had through creative lyric writing, and exploring one’s imagination. It serves as an apt introduction to Nothing Is Enough, where more of the same can be expected.
For further information on Sketchman, you can check out their official channels below:
Since the release of his mixtape 'Winnaz Therapy' earlier this year, Fuzay has become one of the most talked about emerging artists of late and now he is back with another banger! Fuzay's flow goes hard over the heavy beat produced by super duo Z Dot & Krunchie , as he describes his hunger for success.
After travelling to Tokyo to record the video for his new single of the same name, Mez Mariye has begun gaining fans in Japan, and with his sights firmly set on the US and Europe, it is likely you will be hearing a lot more from him in the near future.

Miel de Botton releases her new single, ‘Magnetic’, August 14th 2015
Miel de Botton is set to release her second single, the title track ‘Magnetic’ from her debut album. Remixed by Ash Howes (Kylie Minogue, Ellie Goulding), with remixes by Manhattan Clique (Emeli Sandé , Katy Perry), the single offers a delicate, sweet and intimate insight to Miel, showcasing her vocal talent and ability to write lyrics that are spiritual and meaningful to her, giving a real sense of connection for the listener. The song was written almost as mission statement to attract love to her and to bring joy and integrity to her life, as Miel explains
Miel is proof that that it is never too late to dream, and that those dreams can come true. The mother of two and former psychologist has embarked on a music career that has already seen her perform at the Aldwych Theatre and at the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room (“a truly memorable evening”), as well as joining John Barrowman earlier this year as a special guest on his “You Raise Me Up” national UK tour, including a date at the London Palladium.
“Miel was a dream to have on tour, her unique healing sound was a delight to the audience and me every night” - John Barrowman
