Friday Round-up!

It’s been another very busy week at ABoF with new releases from Emily Magpie, Twist Helix, FOURS, Koto Kill, Monks In The Wood and Copper Viper.

Emily Magpie encourages self-love and good vibes on Be Your Own Light!


Following last year’s The Witching Hour, Bristol based artist and multi-instrumentalist Emily Spetch - aka Emily Magpie - returns to grace our ears with a new spellbinding EP. Taken from the EP, title track and new single Be Your Own Light flows with Emily’s heart-wrenching celestial vocals, alongside glitchy electro hooks and an empowering sentiment, creating a truly dazzling soundscape. 

Be Your Own Light, the new EP from Emily Magpie, is out 8th October 2018.

Twist Helix get emotionally creative in blistering new video!

To celebrate the release of their debut album Ouseburn, Twist Helix have now shared the powerful new video for their previous single Graphite. Talking about the video, the band elaborate, "we all let our anxieties get to us, meaning that we often give up too soon. One of the hardest things to do as an artist is to balance the need to remain critical, with the need of retaining confidence in your vision. That conflict makes the creative process messy; you have to be open to making mistakes in order to learn from them. What we hope comes across in the video is a sense of catharsis. We strongly believe that artistic creation, while emotionally challenging, offers an opportunity for renewal and restoration."

Ouseburn, the new album from Twist Helix, is available to stream on Spotify.

FOURS release irresistible hook-laden pop gem Even In My Dreams!


FOURS are no ordinary indie band, offering hook-driven pop gems that emote a refinement and depth many other artists yearn for. Headed up by the captivating vocals of Edith Violet, described as one of the most compelling new voices on the London music scene, Even In My Dreams finds FOURS at the very top of their game as they create irresistible soaring soundscapes, while skilfully blurring the lines between bittersweet and uplifting.

Even In My Dreams is out now via Big Indie Records. Stream on Spotify now.

Koto Kill release electro-rock anthem War Zone featuring B3NDU!


Collaborative project Koto Kill, the brain child of DJ and producer Gabriel Ralls, have how shared ferocious new track War Zone featuring sucker-punch vocal from fierce female B3NDU. Filled with beautifully abrasive alternative-electro beats, this release is packed with a punch and aims straight for the gut. 

Koto Kill's debut mini LP Fight Us All is out  16th November 2018 via Dystopian Disco.

Monks In The Wood release their charming new single Captivated State!


Peckham-based five-piece Monks In The Wood have returned with another beguiling indie-rock track as they announce new single Captivated State. Led by the impressively emotive dual vocal range of Daniel Toone and Matt PowerCaptivated State flows from the opening note as electro-tinged keys are amplified by jangling guitar segments, a soaring baseline and an atmospheric beat. 

Stream Captivated State on Spotify now.

Roots duo Copper Viper release barn stompin' new video!

London-based folk duo Copper Viper have now shared the stunning new video for their latest single Hurry Up Alone. Beginning intimately with just Robin Joel Sangster (vocals /acoustic guitar) and Duncan Menzies’ (vocals / mandolin / fiddle) intricate vocal harmonies and the gentle hum of frogs croaking in the distance, a sense of warmth is immediately apparent. The pace then picks up as Menzies’ mesmerising fiddle playing comes into play alongside Sangsters’ melodic acoustic guitar, giving Hung Up Alone a truly traditional British folk feel.
