Bambi Release Live Video For Latest Track A Just Nor Fix

After launching seven months ago, Essex band Bambi are growing in popularity. They have supported an array of acts throughout 2013 including Tom Odell, Professor Green, The Family Rain and Mark Ronson.

Now Bambi have released a new live video for their latest track, A Just Nor Fix. The video was recorded at Soundlab studios and was released late last month. Soundcloud is overflowing with positive comments and Bambi can be said to have a notable similarity to Two Door Cinema Club. Bambi play with confidence. They sound cohesive, the vocals are clear and tuneful – they ooze confidence which is portrayed through their music. Bambi are definitely producing music of our time proving to be extremely competent for the indie genre.

Secret Company’s EP consists of six tracks with their sound having been compared to The Killers and Coldplay. Saviour (video here) is a great song that you will instantly want to hear more of. With soothing, easy to listen to vocals, a gripping rhythm and a fantastic melody, Saviour is sure to be a hit.

The chorus is instantly memorable with the lyrics screaming, “Are you looking for a saviour to save you…” and “I told you not to worry ’cause it’s all in vain…” Saviour will leave you wanting more.

Their EP has been independently released and is available to buy now. It will be available on Spotify and all other major Digi and Streaming Stores soon. For more information on Secret Company, visit their website here.

Introducing Itchy Teeth

New underground alternative pop band, Itchy Teeth, have been causing a bit of a stir with the likes of Ronnie Wood congratulating them on their ability to produce, “Stupendous pop rock in the style of real bands from the 60’s. Itchy Teeth are the only band doing it right these days. If you think anyone is writing a better song then you’re surely wrong. I can’t get enough of these lads.”

Itchy Teeth are Charlie Hannah, Xav Clarke, Oli Booker and Jon Varney. I think their names help to sum up the idea behind their music. Itchy Teeth are a pop band with a quirky difference. Did We Lose A War shows their more serious, rock side while Going To A Party shows the opposite side of their personalities. They’re a band who knows how to have fun with good music.

Going To A Party sees the band take a satirical view of the rest of the pop bands out there. It’s a cheesy pop tune with silly lyrics and an awesomely funny video. I can’t help but think it helps to highlight how bad pop has become. Remember, The Beatles were once classed as pop. There’s not a pop band that comes close to them now.

Itchy Teeth are also unique in their idea of the music industry as they produce and edit their own music videos allowing them to have the control over their creative visions. This is brilliant. Who wants some money-making whore to come in, take control and destroy everything you worked hard to achieve?

If you’re interested in finding out a little more about them then read the interview below.
How long have you been producing music together?
All together for about a year…
How did you meet?
Charlie and I (Xav Clarke) started writing songs together back at university when we got put in the same halls of residence in year one. Charlie then introduced me to his school friends, Oli and Jon, who eventually ended up joining the band.
Who are your influences?
All the best.
How come you decided to produce/edit your own videos?
In our band we have a strong belief that nothing will get done unless you do it yourself. When other people become involved, things slow down and end up looking different to the way you envisaged it. In Itchy Teeth, we try to do everything we can ourselves to keep true to our vision.
Have you got any live shows coming up?
We play in London all the time. Our 100th gig this year is coming up and we’re going to Switzerland to play some shows but in the meantime itchyteeth.org has all our upcoming London dates on it. 30th November at Proud Gallery is going to be the Don.

Stealing Signs – Roman House

Emerging from what they call the “sexy end of Essex”, the indie rock/pop dance quartet Stealing Signs are about to release their forthcoming single, Roman House.

With their first single hitting number 14 on iTunes’ Rock Chart on the day of its release and gaining radio play from BBC Radio 1 to BBC Essex and beyond, Stealing Signs have caused a bit of a stir in the music industry.

Their upcoming single Roman House shows what they are all about with quirky guitar riffs and gentle vocals which blend to make a great indie track to listen to. Their influences can be heard clearly in this song with elements of Bombay Bicycle Club shining through.

Roman House has a cracking chorus of “Nothing fits in our home and you won’t move on your own” which won’t fail to get you singing along. The rhythm and melody of the track are spot on lending it to become a great party tune, especially for the fast approaching summer months.

The EP also contains three other remixes of the song. They have been done by Jake Bullit who has produced a Daft Punk inspired remix. The other remixes have been created by bloggers favourite Das Heat and Fluttert who hails from the Netherlands.

Roman House will be released on 23 April through Noise Kitten and will be available on iTunes and all other digital stores. Pre-order is available from 9 April.
