Chimes announce the release of their debut single ‘Pieces’

Chimes

‘PIECES’ the debut single from CHIMES, out August 14th, is a 3min30 burst of positive energy. CHIMES is a collaboration between British producer Draper and multi-genre songwriter/vocalist Paul Aiden.
The insecurity and battle for self-confidence in the verses (“It’s all a game, you against yourself / pressure building up”), make way for uplifting, anthemic crowd chants (“You can find all the pieces that lead you home”) – before hitting the listener with a massive dose of positivity in the chorus.

Forged through a speculative songwriting session in mid-2014, Draper and Aidendiscovered both a creative chemistry and a shared love of constructing credible, commercial songs with international appeal. Several late night writing sessions and live rehearsals later, CHIMES ...

I wrote all the songs. It’s a fresh start for me. That’s why it’s self-titled.”  

After some months of wrangling out of old record contracts, and putting all the distracting machinery of whatever is left of the record industry be...

Trupa Trupa debut new video for Headache title track

Trupa Trupa debut new video for Headache title track

Trupa Trupa

Sharp as a migraine and twice as psychedelic. There is something about Trupa Trupa’s music that borders on an interface with pain – sometimes the vocals and guitar are all treble and daggers, for instance – but then there’s that anaesthetic cushion of organ and the rolling sighs of the rhythms and melodies. Trupa Trupa’s music teeters between a yawn and a shriek. It sways but does not stumble. There is something almost threatening about the way it affects to lose control at moments when you know full well that it never under any less but the most precise and steely control of its creators.

These four men from Gdansk make rock music that swells with a tension and release and tension so exquisitely executed that it wouldn’t be incorrect to think of it as symphonic, ex...
