Time for T

TFT-010
Comprised of smooth eclecticism, TIME FOR T have risen from the creative centrifuge that is the southern UK city of Brighton via Portugal, Switzerland and all corners of England. Their unique breed of sound travels through a rhythm of afrobeat, indie, folk and rock & roll to create waves that grow with torrential intensity. Once locked in from the climbing beat, the lyrics and their deliverance by frontman Tiago Saga transport the listener through stories and experiences with photographic vividness capturing audiences from San Francisco to New York and Paris to Beirut.

 

The band have released 3 EPs to date, the latest release (self-titled) came out in 2015 via BBE Records (Barely Breaking Even). Having concluded the recording of their debut full length album ‘Hoping Something Anything’ in London, it is set to be released in the summer of 2017. Two singles from the upcoming album have been

released thus far with ‘Tom Tom’ being played on BBC Radio 1 and ‘Rescue Plane’ reaching number 1 in the Spotify UK Viral Charts as well as getting airplay across Portugal, England, USA and Germany.

Kioko

unspecified
Following the release of the True What You Say EP, multi-cultural Birmingham band, KIOKO get set to release their follow up “Let’s Be Frank”. Having released a hard hitting documentary styled video  earlier this year

for Deadly Roots (the lead track from the True What You Say EP) the boys have been busy in the studio getting to work on their current project. Let’s Be Frank Deadly Roots used strong lyrics and rhythmic melodies to

spread a message that fits in with todays ever changing society, a message of realness and respectfulness to others and one that they will continue to see through in their new release.

She Drew The Gun

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

She Drew The Gun, fronted by singer-songwriter Louisa Roach offer dreamy lyrical psych-pop from the banks of the Mersey. They have just announced an April release for debut Album, Memories of the Future, the record is the result of Louisa Roach meeting with James Skelly in 2015. Introduced by a friend of his who heard her doing a live session for the local BBC introducing show. He liked what he heard and initial work on an EP became an album. Going into the studio with the bare bones of the songs- poetic autobiographical lyrics set to haunting riffs and melodies, they built up the tracks, developing an electronic element into Roach’s sound. The result is a dark but dreamlike collection of stories from Roach’s life and imagination caught in a bubble of psych-tinged pop. Exploring more conventional subject matter like delicate and dysfunctional relationships, unrequited love and lament for love lost, but often veering outside the norm with Sci-Fi protest songs, or more subterranean subjects like homelessness, drugs and alcohol.

Originally a vehicle for Roach as a solo performer the project has shape-shifted and evolved into a full band since its inception in 2013. Sian Monaghan who played drums on the LP, was first to join, and the band have played in a number of formations. They supported Fink on a month long UK and European tour in autumn 2015 as a three piece with Jack Turner on Guitar, latest addition Jenni Kickhefer completes the line up for their upcoming album tour in April.

Louisa’s underground roots lie in performing at open mic events and various acoustic gigs, honing her skills along the way, she gained the attention of Radio 6Music last year when Steve Lamacq championed a first release, that led to an invitation to perform a BBC introducing live session at Maida Vale in 2015. Gaining further national recognition and acclaim with several further underground releases. The band look forward to the release of the album and a string of live dates around the UK to go with it.

“I’m very excited about the potential of this band”  – Steve Lamacq BBC R6Music

“If you like Portishead and PJ Harvey you will love them”  – Edith Bowman

Lost Colours

Since its inception at the start of the year, 2016 has been an exciting time for Lost Colours, with the creation of their debut album “Talking in Technicolour”, in collaboration with many incredible musicians, including The Haggis Horns (Jay Z, Jamiroquai, Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Lily Allen, Take That, Adele) Kenny Higgins (Corrine Bailey Rae), Jasdeep De Gun (Goldie, Donovan, Sky’s young musician of the year 2016), Sara Garvey (Nightmares on Wax, Warp Records), Rebekah Dobbins (Living Gods of Haiti) and many more. T
They played their first live show to a packed out tent at Bluedot Festival, and their music used to back up Brian Eno’s amazing Psychedelic visual show and caught the ear of Xfm Radio stalwart, Eddy Temple-Morris, who loved the band so much that he crossed over from A&R into management for the first time in his career. Team Lost Colours then expanded to include Nineteen95 Management and the production legend/Bjork’s musical

director, Damian Taylor (Bjork, Temper Trap, Killers, Arcade Fire, UNKLE, Prodigy, Freeland, Depeche Mode) Damian shared Eddy’s profound love for the band and insisted he was the man to mix the entire album.

 

Jan 2017 saw their first release “Through The Looking Glass EP” which receive notable support from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and also BBC Introducing labelling Lost Colours as their new favourite act and declaring 2017 as their year.

 

Lost Colours are now in discussion with a high profile label and publisher which will see spring 2017 kick off with a wave of releases followed by a UK/European Tour with their 8 piece live band.
