30/09/11Christy "La Fille Francaise"

From Christy's 2009 album 'Shine & Rise', the footage was shot in Paris very soon after the track was originally recorded back in late 2007. Due to not having access to a comp that could video edit, it slipped off the radar, until now... There was no great plan at the time of the shoot, so there were large gaps in the footage and now it's become a montage style video, pictures, home movie, mimed performance, so quite like Short Goodbye then... just this one should've been first... ;-)

05/09/11Nathan Persad "I Bet You Say That To All The Guys"

From Nathan Persad's new double A-side single, this video captures Nathan's live charisma very well, so, if you haven't been to one of his shows, take a look and see why you should!
Note #1 - Video filmed at the Ivy House, Nunhead, so thank-you to the guys there!
Note #2 - The main song in the video features a different mix to the single, can you spot the differences?

10/07/11The 286 "Hello"

Taken from The 286 upcoming EP 'A Victory for Battalion 286' which is out on 11th July! The video was shot on the Saturday afternoon of the last weekend in June '11, at the bandstand on Blackheath, the hill of Greenwich Park and the roof of the Music Complex, Deptford.

The 286
20/06/11The 286 sign with MHM!

A seven piece band from London, The 286 cross the genres of indie rock and classical music, clashing rock & roll riffs with cellos and violins. The result sounds like a musical collaboration between The Beatles and Ludwig van Beethoven. The 286 write songs which are lyrically dense and rich, and feature elaborate orchestrations that explode like baroque fireworks. Welcome to the world of barouque & roll!

"Brilliant - The 286 have created a brand new genre of Baroque & Roll!"
- Indie Scene magazine

"The 286 are so fresh and original, after one listen you just want to hear more,more, more." - Digital Vinyl Reviews blog

EP/CD out on MileHighMusic in July!

Zen's 2004 single wears its influences very firmly on its sleeve while still managing to sound highly fresh and contemporary. Like all the best musicians who pay homage to the work of previous artists, Zen don't simply replicate the sound of their influences they build and expand upon them. What they've produced is a heady blend of folk, punk and psychedelia for a 21st century audience. - Jaspre Bark
