MR RON JETSON
Founded in London, Mr Ron Jetson is an extraterrestrial existential crisis. With enthralling drums, jagged bass lines, car crash rhodes keys and desperately evocative melodies, they have been extensively touring around the UK and Europe and are in the process of producing their 4th studio album, filmed and recorded live at Hakisac Studios. They are also mixing their upcoming EP that will be released in Juin 2014.
The latest project from Javier Otero, Mud Pretty is a significant evolution from his previous projects. Mixing minimal electronic beats with dirty pretty samples, he takes you into another realm where something is slightly, just slightly not quite right. He has been playing festivals in Europe and has a busy line up for the coming year. Next album to be released in October 2014.
Nightwire's first album Out of Place has its foundations firmly set in that traditional soul music we intuitively know and understand. Refreshingly raw, simple yet complex, it reaches out to the subconscious, transcending life and time. Sincere, melodic, at times manic, Nightwire manages to achieve a contact that is rarely experienced in today's musical world.
THE UNITED KINGDOM
The world's worlds are intriguing propositions. The United Kingdom is a project that this intrigue was the very thing that formed an idea. It is a fact, though it would sometimes be best to take such a notion with a pinch of salt. Impressions, possibility and a journey to behold. Welcome. Perhaps they're your worlds too? The United Kingdom formed in 2014. Andrew Bunsell: Vocals, guitar and keyboards. Jem Doulton: Vocals, drums and keyboards.
Volume Arcade will make you hear sounds you'd didn't even know existed. Hypnotic avant-garde explosive cacophonies disintegrate into haunting melodies that somehow seem familiar. Definitely from another planet, they will blow you away and leave you wondering how life used to be before hearing them. They will open your mind to the intergalactic stream of consciousness.
