Band of Skulls

 

If you are looking for a new indie/rock band, look no further. From the first  track I listened to of theirs I knew I was listening to a good band with a lot of potential. Plus, they are also from Southampton so they are also local talent for me which is always a bonus.

They have recently released a new album called  Sweet Sour but I would definitely reccomend you start with their début album Baby Darling Doll Face Honey as it is a brilliant mix of indie and rock beats from the catchy lyrics of Death by Diamonds and Pearls to the upbeat melody of Light of the Morning; you will not be disappointed!!

This band is set to breakthrough the music industry having already featured on Radio 1 as Fearne Cotton’s track of the week as well as having slots at this year’s Isle of Wight festival and Reading festival.

You will be sure to hear more from this band very soon, once they get back from their european tour they are currently on. Keep up to date with the band’s tour and music here.

 

Here is a favourite track of mine of their second album and their most recent single, Devil takes care of his own:

Allie Moss

 

This is an artist I went to see at Southampton’s Joiners live and i was not disappointed. I first heard of her from a song you will recognise from a bt infinity advert last year. The song is called corner and is a brilliant acoustic song.

If you like your acoustic female singer songwriter then you will definitely love this one. Think the soft voice melodies of Colbie Caillat meets the raw emotion of James Morrison. All of her songs have an interesting story behind them and each one gives the listener an insight into Allie’s life.

One of my favourite tracks of hers is called Melancholy Astronautic man which has a beautiful yet catchy romantic melody. Check it out here:

Allie Moss seems to have it all, she has a voice perfectly suited to acoustic songs, she writes and composes her own tunes and she can play many different instruments. There’s not much to dislike about the American singer and musician.

To top it off, before she took to the stage in Southampton I managed to interview this up and coming acoustic singer from Jersey. So, watch this space for the whole interview and to find out about how BT chased her down for the advert and much more.

 

In the mean time, have a look at her website for the latest on Allie Moss here.
