Marey - The Bergamot - Miesha and The Spanks - Marinho

Marey are from Switzerland and have released 'Synthetic' the first single from their upcoming second album due out next year. The song is a mixture of lush electronica and dreamy vocals, with the arrangement adding even more depth. 

We have a couple of songs from The Bergamot namely 'Young Again' and 'Bones'. Taken from the duos recent 'Mayflies' album, the two tracks give some indication of the differing directions and style their music has, the constant level of creativity is impressive, as well as award winning.

Miesha and The Spanks have just released 'The Girls Are O.K' which is a feisty rocker with some classic punk vibes, and bags of potent energy.

Portuguese alternative folk-rock artist, Marinho, has unveiled the new single and video, 'I Give Up and It’s O.k' from her upcoming debut album. Melodic and quite catchy the lyrics are reflective, the vibe relaxed and additively pleasing. 

Marey - Synthetic. 

Since 2016, the band has been constantly reinventing itself and embarking on an ever more complex and in-depth musical research. Above all, the love of creation prevails, without barriers, without taboos and without the desire to please or affiliate with a particular style.

The independence and DIY aspect that the group wants to keep allows them to free themselves from codes. If we can recognize in their latest creations some influences of electronica and modern trip hop, the band stands out for their experimentation and their willingness to surprise and disturb.

Their texts and music are aimed at what is hidden deep within us and human nature. To plunge into this universe is to enter a lunatic world, between dream like light and gloomy coldness, between calm and violence. A macrocosm of questions rather than answers where nothing is permanent except the music and everything it contains.


The Bergamot - Young Again / Bones.

Emmy Award-winning duo The Bergamot release new record Mayflies produced by legendary engineer/producer Matt Wiggins (UK). The sterling stream of singles released this year has set the world stage for The Bergamot. The new album, Mayflies is set to be the biggest release in the group's history. The band has announced a full U.S. tour this fall, more music videos upcoming, all the while the band's fanbase grows by the day. It's been an overnight success that has been 10 years in the making.

The Bergamot's journey began on October 20th, 2017. The Bergamot released their dreamy anthem P.D.R. (Both Records LLC). The single launched the band's career who was discovered by Matt Wiggins (Adele, U2, Florence and the Machine) and then went on to achieve great reviews being called "The hottest emerging music talent" (People) and "a gorgeous sound" (Daily Mirror) and the "Best of 2019" on Where the Music Meets and mp3hugger.

In recent months, The Bergamot revealed a fully animated music video for "One Mile" and the fascinating "Bones" video filmed by evolve Films. The "Bones" music video was filmed underwater and marks a poignant message about depressions and suicide. The glitches of the video reflect a fragmented perspective and touch the viewer in an empathetic and revealing way. After making the band's UK debut in The Daily Record and The Daily Mirror, the band is being heralded as "one of 2019 finest" (mp3hugger), "Best of 2019" Where the Music Meets, and a band that "We’ve been lauding for years" (Atwood Magazine).


Miesha and The Spanks - The Girls Are O.K.

Based in Treaty 7 Territory, Miesha & The Spanks have been making a name for themselves as Calgary’s louder-than-you-might-think, non-stop touring machines. They’ve been described as “a fast, nasty, sexy slab of riff-fuelled Runaways rock, clad in spit-polished black leather and bursting with sass and singalong swagger”— as portrayed by rock n roll matriarch Miesha Louie and her partner in crime, the hardest hitting Sean Hamilton on drums.

Miesha created The Spanks back in 2008 as a means to control her destiny— a specific brand of rock grown from her punk rock roots and nurtured by her own experiences and story-telling, and a career heavy in touring and vinyl. No more band break-ups and lost songs — Miesha & The Spanks would do what it wanted as long as Miesha had the fever. Earlier EP’s were released via Winnipeg’s Transistor 66, before the resurrection of Calgary’s Saved By Vinyl — a local boutique label, and current home to MATS, Astral Swans, and Eamon McGrath.

Their 2018 release Girls Girls Girls was produced by Danny Farrant of UK Punk Legends The Buzzcocks. The album reached #1 on Earshot!’s National Loud charts, and had singles hit #7 on CBC 3’s R3-30, and #1 on the Indigenous Music Countdown. It was also given regular attention by Rodney Bingenheimer’s Sirius XM show Rodney On The Rock. Girls Girls Girls saw Miesha & The Spanks on the cover of Alberta’s Beatroute Magazine, accompanied by 30 dates across Canada, and festival appearances at Blizzard Music Fest (Rossland BC), Canadian Music Week (Toronto), Sled Island (Calgary), Rifflandia (Victoria BC), Halifax Pop Explosion (Halifax), Big Winter Classic (Calgary), The Great Escape (Brighton UK), FOCUS Wales (Wrexham UK), and Breakout West (Whitehorse YK).

Late 2019 into early 2020 will see the release of a series of singles, beginning with The Girls Are O.K.— an ode to the pre-teen cis, trans, and non-binary girls that Miesha works with at Girls Rock Camp Calgary year after year. Then, get ready for a solid spring touring schedule in Canada, the US, UK, and EU. MATS have played as direct support to such acts as Queens Of The Stone Age, Death From Above 1979, Hot Snakes, Propagandhi, Pack AD, White Lung, Reignwolf, and more.


Marinho - I Give Up and It's OK.

Portuguese alternative folk-rock artist, Marinho, has unveiled the new single and video, “I Give Up and It’s Ok,” from her upcoming debut LP, ~ (read tilde).

Born in Lisbon and raised in front of the TV, Filipa Marinho had plenty of early exposure to American cartoons and mid-90's movies, as well as an intimacy with Hollywood’s views on love, relationships, and overall human nature. Growing up in an emotionally abusive household, Marinho was exposed to things a child should never be exposed to, causing her to live in fear of not being loved and accepted.

Sadness and abandonment phobia are themes that she tackles on ~, in addition to her sexuality and feminism. Tracks like “I Give Up and It’s Ok” find Marinho letting go of the idealized person that she thought she wanted to be in relationships, and gaining new strength and a will to finally take up space.

Recorded at Black Sheep Studios and mastered by Philip Shaw Bova (Father John Misty, Marlon Williams, Feist, Andy Shauf), ~ is constructed from the simplicity of the roots of American folk music, with lush, cinematic tinges. The first single, “Ghost Notes,” made a splash on major Portuguese radio stations as well as Spotify and Apple Music playlists such as “Fresh Finds: Six Strings” and “New Music Friday,” and “Breaking Alternative,” respectively. The momentum continued to build with the release of “Window Pain,” which premiered on VICE Portugal, and Marinho spent the spring and summer touring in anticipation of the album.
