Wolf Alice and Woman’s Hour @ SXSW 2014

Wolf Alice

image

With the release of their debut EP ‘Blush’ at the tail end of last year, Wolf Alice affirmed themselves as once of the brightest prospects in UK guitar music today. Mastering a wealth of genres into a fresh, inimitable sound, the group – fronted by insatiable frontwoman Ellie Rowsell – has seen the likes of BBC Radio One, NME and The Guardian falling head over heels for their growing catalogue of sugar-sweet / razor sharp anthems. Following a triumphant 2013 that saw the band complete packed out nationwide tours alongside much-hyped slots at The Great Escape, Latitude and End of The Road Festivals amongst many others, their debut long player will see its release in late 2014. Armed with their perfect timing in reaching their enviably young peak, Wolf Alice’s rising trajectory is one not to be missed.

Woman’s Hour

London’s Woman’s Hour have been making waves on both sides of the Atlantic with a stream of transfixing singles championed for their bold minimalist sensibility and instantly memorable melodies. Audiences in the US will get their first chance to see them and hear songs from their forthcoming debut album, due out this year on Secretly Canadian, at this year’s SXSW Festival and shows in New York and Los Angeles, complete dates below.

Newly signed to Secretly Canadian, ‘Her Ghost’ is Woman’s Hour’s first release with their new label following a year which saw them become the 6th most blogged band of the year (6 Music & Hype Machine), receive praise from the likes of Pitchfork, The Fader and Huw Stephens, and support Volcano Choir at The Barbican in addition to their own nationwide headline shows. Placing the heart-wrenching vocals of Fiona Burgess against an intricate backdrop of expertly-crafted electronic textures, the new song finds its power through restraint with the band’s attention to the smallest of details reflected in the richness of the end result. At once achingly subtle and breathtakingly powerful in its melodic display, ‘Her Ghost’ is testament to a band fully in command of their unique identity and sound. Woman’s Hour are Fiona Burgess, William Burgess, Josh Hunnisett and Nicolas Graves. The band are set for a UK headline tour in April as well as supporting Metronomy on their UK and EU tour through March and April.

Midnight Davis - In The Mood For Love video

"His music is a harsh storm of head-bursting sinfulness, always capable of snatching the focus from any comfy distractions. Dark as tar. That much we know. But that doesn’t stop the video for “In the Mood For Love” from going way beyond these grimly-told depths." Midnight Davis’ In The Mood For Love video premieres on Portals!

The Severance EP is due for release in September on Five Easy Pieces.
