Alex Bayly releases poignant new single I'll Never Leave You!

Rising alt-folk artist Alex Bayly has released his poignant new single I’ll Never Leave You, out now via Big Indie Records. The single combines elements from the past and present to create Bayly’s own vibrant, introspective sound. His rich, soulful vocal soars with emotion over the textured strings and dreamy guitar licks, sounding akin to the likes of Dan Auerbach or Andy Shauf. Talking about the track Bayly elaborates "I’ll Never Leave You is the story of a person professing their love and commitment to a relationship, but as time passes they become aware of the outside world and other extraneous factors having an effect on their state of mind and their relationship.” Catch Bayly live on 10th April 2019 at Two Tribes Brewery for the next Big Indie Big Nights event in association with DIY Magazine - Tickets .

Sive tackles mental health head-on in powerful new video!

Alt-folk songstress Sive - aka Sadhbh O’Sullivan - has now shared the powerful new video for her latest single Do It All The Time, out now via Veta Records. The video, directed by James Byrne, sees Sive sitting in a chair while being controlled by strings. We soon see that the person pulling the strings from above is another version of herself. The imagery communicates the idea that there is often a part of ourselves that urges us to play a certain role in society, even if it goes against what is true. Sive's self-titled EP is out 3rd May 2019 via Veta Records.
