We're delighted to announce that H. Hawkline's record 'I Romanticize' has been nominated for this years Welsh Music Prize. Today all twelve nominations will be revealed, with the winner being announced at a ceremony at Milk&Sugar in the Old Library, Cardiff on Friday 20th October. NME have all the details on Huw's nomination which you can read here: http://bit.ly/2xQdY10 Honouring the album, a statement from the Welsh Music Prize says: “The melodic sound of Huw Evans’ voice allows the Cardiffian to avoid the often stunting formulas of indie rock. PURCHASE 'I Romanticize' HERE: http://heavenlyemporium.com/buy/i-romanticize-0/ "His songs wed squawking guitars to hall-of-mirrors harmonies and Steely Dan grooves to eerie piano, while the abstract imagery of his lyrics reveals a send of loss and frustration...overall his cryptic psyche surrenders its charm easily." – Q-Magazine ★★★★

Confidence Man bring you ‘Confident Music For Confident People’

Fact is, on Friday 13 th April 2018 they release their 11-track debut album 'Confident Music For Confident People.'

'Confident Music for Confident People' sets eleven tales of 21st century ennui to irresistible, irrepressible dance music.

...

Here is a set of songs that take the kind of all-consuming interior monologues that bored, disaffected youth are wrestling with the world over and places them square in the middle of the dance floor before adding call-and-response choruses for good measure – it’s the best collection of perfect pop music you’ll hear all year, the perfect embodiment of the characters that made it that somehow manages to be both wildly ambitious and deceptively simple at the same time.

PRE-ORDER 'CONFIDENT MUSIC FOR CONFIDENT PEOPLE' HERE: http://smarturl.it/CManCMFCP

And in preparation for the album’s arrival they have just unveiled its latest track, 'Don’t You Know I’m In A Band'.

“We wrote this song for people who think they're really cool just because they're in a band. People like us,” explains Janet Planet.

“Don't you know? Didn't you know? Well if you didn't know by now you should do your homework. Being in a band is the coolest and it ain't ever gonna change.” Added Sugar Bones.

The band bring their insanely infectious live show back to Europe in the summer. Read more here: http://bit.ly/2EEkrQh

Confidence Man have announced details of their debut album, 'Confident Music For Confident People.'

Janet Planet chatted to NME about the bands live show, what to expect from the record and her famous dance moves that get audiences up on their feet.

"I’m not a particularly good dancer, but when I get up on stage I just kind of do my own thing and lay down really hard so the audience feels like they can do the same, and that in itself is the best part about the band for me, j...ust getting up there and everyone thinking that what I’m doing is intentional but actually, like, I’m not very good. People just love that and they find it really freeing. There’s not enough dork in dance music these days, and I think that’s what we bring a bit of."

👏🎶 OUT TODAY: The Orielles debut record 'Silver Dollar Moment.' 💥

“What makes debut ‘Silver Dollar Moment’ such a satisfying listen isn’t just the gusto with which they make it their own, it’s how the record bubble with ideas. Songs shift speed and change tack as they continually look for unexpected corners to explore. Bongos, flute solos, dense walls of harmonies and disco slow-jams all appear in the spaces between single Esmé Dee Hand-Halford airy vocals and Henry Carlyle ...Wade’s liquid guitars” - Q-Magazine★★★

“A special collection of tracks that effortlessly fizz through genres and eras with an irresistible charm. It’s a simply joyous statement of intent.” - Dork ★★★★

“Sweet harmonies over a scuzzy layer of instruments is not new in the world of indie rock, but in “Silver Dollar Moments”, The Orielles manage to upend expectations at every turn through surprising timing, creative use of instrumentation and intelligent, thoughtful lyrics. Above all though, there are melodies and harmonies that soar.” - Backseat Mafia 9/10

“As a debut, it shows the band to be three wise cultural connoisseurs, ready to engage the heart and the head in equal measure.” - Louderthanwar 8/10

“The energy and exuberance of ‘Silver Dollar Moment’, and its fearless experimentation with post-punk and dance genres, make it one of the best debuts of recent years.”
- GIGsoup

📢 NEW SIGNING ANNOUNCEMENT: Welcome 77:78.

A brand new project from Aaron Fletcher & Tim Parkin, members of the The Bees, they bowled us over with their recent white-label seven, 'Love Said (Let’s Go)', a track Sounds of the Universe record shop described as a ‘killer infectious soul pop tune’.

The 7" sold out in 48 hours off the back of a building buzz and we quickly signed the band.

...

“We only popped in for a 45 and ended up signing the group,” said Jeff.

The band have also announced details of their debut London show at OMEARA on Monday 26th March - like The Bees, their almost-in-the-can debut album already sounds like staying up with a mate who has a mind-blowing record collection playing you all the best bits.

Today we welcome a new artist to our roster, Dan Stock.

A talented songwriter with a confident swagger, here we have the first track ‘Baby Valentino’ from his forthcoming EP.

A young man from Milton Keynes, Stock talks about this emotionally charged track:

...

“Baby Valentino is a love story set in a city centre at night. It’s a result of countless nights out in Milton Keynes looked at through my romantic imagination. I love writing lyrics that are about mundane, everyday situations but have a bit of magic thrown in. I guess that comes from my obsession with writers like Jarvis Cocker, I’ve always loved his way of thinking that “Nobody needs to know where reality ends and wishful-thinking takes over.” Hearing him say that really changed the way I approached writing lyrics.”

Here is a video for the track, directed by Kieran Evans.

WATCH HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CV4_Z9UHS34

Dan is making an appearance at this year’s Heavenly Weekender in Hebden Bridge & playing this years hottest new music festivals.

Today the band release an infectious swampy-fuzz of an ear worm, ‘Loner Boogie’. Accompanied by kaleidoscopic, hallucinatory rush of a video; directed by Cardiff film-maker Toby Cameron who also worked on ‘Face Behind Her Cigarette’.

Talking about the video, Davey said:

“It’s a scary world out there these days, sometimes you don’t want to go outside. Sometimes you get the Loner Boogie. Follow us into the Cardiff Transport Club for some fish-eye Kung Fu and a Guiness with the legendary Kliph Scurlock. Not sure he’s that into it to be honest though.”

😆💫 IN ONE WEEK The Orielles release their debut record 'Silver Dollar Moment.' 😘

The band chatted to 'The Most Radicalist' about the making of the record:

“In a track called 'Sunflower Seeds' on the record, there's a line which goes “we talk about space” and Marta came up with such a crazy, yet brilliant idea that we should take that line, and reverse it underneath the actual main vocal line. So underneath the line is the phrase being sang backwards. It sounds dead cool and ...Twin Peaks-y.”
