Dreamer

Red Moon

Decca Records

Released: Single: Out now/Album: 9 October 2020
Dreamer - Red Moon

We say

Dramatic, bewitching and packed full of ethereal goodness, Dreamer is the new single from Norway’s Red Moon. Having been raised in an artistic household in the rugged landscape of Nittedal, she left her hometown to attend a music academy and explore the world to gather her own stories for her musical inspiration. Her debut release Dogma, released earlier this year, quickly found the attention of Annie Mac at BBC Radio 1 where it landed her a first play along with praise from the Line of Best Fit. Released on Friday (25 September) and featuring on her native Spotify NMF and the Deezer UK’s Brand New editorial playlists, the track is a glorious cinematic blend of swirling melodies, powerfully enchanting vocals and epic production. Think London Grammar meets Florence + The Machine with a hint of Kate Bush. Watch the video here. Next month, she will be dropping her debut EP Phase I:IX, and we can’t wait to hear it. Big, bold and utterly fantastic.

Eric Val

Eric Val


“Diverse Music with a Hard Rock Edge,” or "Diverse Rock" sums up Eric Val’s music career. This hard rock solo artist comes from Williamsport, PA, that was influenced by bands like Sevendust, Shinedown, Marvin Gaye, Garth Brooks, Eric Clapton, Stone Sour and Seether. He has a classically trained voice that helps him propel his sound and style far above the rest. His writing style is as unique as his voice. 

With the release of the debut album ‘3 Year Struggle’ August 31, 2012, the world got to see a small taste of what Eric is all about. With 13 original tracks, it is available exclusively at ericvalmusic.com, along with itunes.com, amazon.com, and cdbaby.com. The album demonstrates his diversity, honesty and passion for his music. The first two singles ‘High Above You’ and ‘Pull Me Under’ showcase his pop sensibility and the rest show the diversity.

The next recording was released in September 2013 debuting the rock/pop single ‘Beauty Queen’. The song exemplifies a mixture of heavy guitars, groove drumming and smooth vocals. Another single was released, ‘If You Only Knew’, in July of 2014, and comprises a mixture of acoustic guitars, electric solos and fast paced drums. Then in 2015, came Beautiful Lie a mixture of rock, country and classical music with a smooth melody and voice. 

The sophomore album My Gift, My Curse,  released on November 18, 2019. In short, it the most diverse rock album ever, featuring 14 different musicians playing over twenty different instruments on the album. Ranging from rock and metal influence to classical and country tones. The first single Tragedy will start it off and is released. A mixture of rock, country and classical music with haunting lyrics and melody. It is dedicated to the ones we've lost, the ones left behind and the affect it has on us. Inspired by the people we've lost due to suicide and drug overdoses.

All the proceeds from the song will be donated to the Recovery Awareness Connection, an organization dedicated to recovery of those with drug abuse and mental illness. Two other singles have been released as well groove metal melodic My Own Hell and jazz rock fusion The Past. Along with the singles Slow Decline an R&B, Rock and classical piece and hard rock tribal Faded Memory. 

As for what's next? On Monday, April 13, 2020, Granddad's Lessons, a country-rock single mixed with a touch of classical, will be released. Featuring killer country music musicians Roy Peterman (Peddle Steel) and Richard Rupert (Fiddle and Mandolin) with a touch of diverse rock. Then comes the Rock Country with touch of Classical tune Saying Goodbye, coming out May 18, 2020. Always working, always creating, there will be more.

Downfalls - Cally Rhodes

We say

With over 10m combined streams, west Wales-based newcomer Cally Rhodes is back with this irresistible slice of upbeat and honest dance-pop. Written and co-produced by Cally and mixed by Toby Scott (Little Mix, Gorgon City, Girls Aloud), Downfalls fizzes with infectious energy, full of luscious hooks and a want-to-dance beat that is tailor-made for new pop playlists and radio airplay. Released on Friday it featured on Spotify Sweden’s (home to her label, LoudKult) New Music Friday playlist, having previously charted in Spotify’s Viral Top 50 chart and New Music Friday playlists with her earlier singles. It's just been added to BBC Radio Wales A-list following previous radio support for her tracks from BBC Introducing (Artist of the Week) and spot plays on Radio 1 and 2. Further support has come from MTV, Pop Dust, Pop Wrapped, Dancing Astronaut and The Sun, plus her music has been used on Strictly Come Dancing. Before the pandemic, she toured with The Midnight Beast, Louise Redknapp and was due to play Kew Gardens and Cardiff Pride this summer. A confident, honest and headstrong new pop star in the making.

Whale

Rebecka Reinhard

Crowds & Power Recordings

Released: Single: Out now/EP: 27 July 2020
Whale - Rebecka Reinhard

We say

Originally from Stockholm, but now residing in the UK, singer-songwriter Rebecka Reinhard delivers an absolute gem in this gorgeously subversive and bittersweet indie-rock offering. Its blend of dreamy shoegaze textures, killer melodies and punchy vocals hides a melancholic side, lyrically, as the track speaks about our fractured socio-political climate and current isolated situation. Released earlier this week and recorded with producer Anders Kallmark for his Camden Town-based label Crowds & Power Recordings, Whale ticks all the right boxes for alt-rock and sad playlists, as well as being ripe for sync opportunities for a TV drama series. Clash, Nothing But Hope and Passion and When The Horn Blows are all early fans but expect to see more come on board over the next week for this cool tune.
