SHEL - Rainbow.

Did you know that in some regions of India, when a woman becomes a widow, she becomes a "bad omen," shunned by friends and family?  In fact, Vrindavan, India is home to more than 20,000 abandoned and destitute widows who live in forced exile.

But here's the coolest part--there are locally-run craft shelters like Hope Springz (which was featured in award-winning documentary Beyond Karma) who are empowering the women and teaching them how to support themselves by making jewelry (they're making rainbow colored bracelets for this creative campaign). With their beautiful single and gorgeous video "Rainbow," acclaimed folk-pop outfit SHEL wants to further empower the women of Hope Springz by bringing awareness and telling the world about them.

The video features the women of Hope Springz, and the joy on their faces is unforgettable. SHEL’s Eva Holbrook traveled to India to make the music video for "Rainbow" with a focus on raising much-needed awareness for these vulnerable women. SHEL (sisters Sarah, Hannah, Eva, and Liza Holbrook) hope their partnership with Hope Springz will make a lasting impact.


Inferior Complex - Dome.

Led by brothers Andrew and Ray Missons, Inferior Complex was originally formed in 1979 .  Andrew plays guitar and keyboards and Ray plays bass and is the vocalist. Original drummer Jimmy Faye left the band late 1980 but the band continued with another drummer and later on with a drum machine until the band split in 1983.

The brothers then  played in various other bands together until they reformed the group in January 2011 using an online drum machine.  In 2015 they added Paul Jenman on drums to complete the current line up.

Their influences are  early Factory Records bands including  Section 25,  A Certain Ratio, The Wake, Joy Division and New Order.

They self released their album “In Your Life” in June 2017 on Bandcamp and hooked up with German Shepherd in July 2017 for wider distribution.  A series of singles and EPs followed. We are pleased to announce the launch of a new single called "Dome". An instrumental, this epic track brings a cinematic feel to the bands trademark post punk sound.


amini - When We Were Kids.

amini (Nio Amini and Mattis Moviken) are a two-piece cinematic indie duo based in the heart of London, whilst originally from Oslo, Norway.

Today Friday 31st January the duo who are independent artists release a brand new E.P comprising of four wonderful and original songs.

This is amini's third E.P and their "heart stirring" indie pop really is something to hear and behold!


Seazoo - The Pleasure.

Welsh noise-pop experts Seazoo launch newest quirky indie bop ‘The Pleasure’ and announce details around their forthcoming second album ‘JOY’, set for release 3rd April via BIG TERRY.

Following acclaimed lead single ‘Throw It Up’, with its swaggering, anthemic qualities, and sparkling follow-up ‘Heading Out’, the indie five-piece continue to edge further into the spotlight with each offering from their forthcoming record, mixing unbridled positivity with their trademark charisma to sublime effect.

Discussing their forthcoming single, enigmatic frontman Ben Trow explained: “‘The Pleasure’ is about taking time to enjoy small moments that make you happy – I think it’s really important right now as the world goes completely bonkers! For me it’s my love for writing and recording music, something that I never take for granted; but the tune can be about anything really”.

Heavily influenced by the likes of Yo La Tengo, Courtney Barnett and Grandaddy, the fledgling quintet have already attracted significant critical acclaim (Q, NME, DIY, Dork, Clash, The Line Of Best Fit) and widespread airplay (BBC Radio 1, 6 Music), not to mention a glowing live reputation through appearances at SXSW, The Great Escape and Green Man and supports with IDLES, The Lovely Eggs and Circa Waves; with their profile only set to increase further on their April UK tour in support of the album.

Recorded at Big Jelly Studios and produced by Ben Trow and Mike Collins (Girl Ray, Pip Blom), Seazoo’s ‘The Pleasure’ is out now and available via all digital platforms.
