Artwork.jpgMulti-talented artist Lucie Barât is set to release her new single Take Me Away on 24th November via Alya Records. Being the sister of Carl Barât , of The Libertines fame, music is firmly embedded in Lucie’s blood.

Having always performed in bands, combining a love of writing and performing, Lucie has recorded with legendary David Bowie producer, Mark Plati and more recently with The Au Revoirs.









No 2: Purest

Yielding more swagger than a Kevin Shields customized Jazzmaster, the intense sounds of Sheffield guitar bandits Purest have come knocking firmly at the door of mainstream radio with new single Waiting For to be released later this month.

The Sheffield 4-piece’ debut made such an overwhelming first impression on Gary Powell of The Libertines that he, along with label partner Wayne Clarke, signed them to their label 25 Hour Convenience Store Records for their second full release.

Top news just in is the release of a new single in the shape of Got My Star and it's a banger so needless to say Ralph's giving it a spin on the Radio KC Indie Show Sunday 15th October.







No 4Sugarmen

Ralph's favourite video this week is the excellent and trippy Push Button Age by Liverpool band Sugarmen.

The track is on their soon to be released debut album Local Freaks which sees it's launch party in The Sebright Arms, London on October 5th.










No 5: Snippet



Picture

Colchester's favourite son Johnno Casson aka Snippet is the uncrowned king of feelgood pop-esque music and his latest album Human Good isn't bucking that trend. 

Johnno takes you on a journey of "people-rich" stories that encompasses a wide array of characters including fraudsters, pimps, prostitutes, drinkers, users and abuser’s and simple everyday folk just trying to make sense of this world. 











No 6: Names


Limb by Limb by Pembrokeshire-based duo Names is the follow up single to Backs Turned, a song that has already been played on Ralph's Indie Show on Radio KC. It has been described elsewhere as “a wintry soundscape with all the fluency, space and atmosphere of the Mogwai Les Revenants soundtrack”. 

Where do you go after creating such an assured artistic statement with your debut single? Limb by Limb is the answer. Names have shed any creative ego to create a raw, emotionally rich song devoid of self-indulgence and over reaching dramatization.








No 7: PAVES

PAVES Baby Packshot.jpg
London four-piece PAVES are set to release their new single Baby via the reformed This Feeling Records, digitally as of now and on limited edition 7” vinyl on November 17th.

BABY is an upbeat, ready made guitar classic that wouldn’t be out of place in a feel good, Hollywood rock n roll movie. Speaking on the track, the band said, "Baby went down a blast all summer.











No 8: CHROMA




Chroma Vampires Packshot.jpg
South Wales trio CHROMA set to release their explosive new single Vampires October 27th via Datod Records with the track already available to download.

Vampires is their first release since playing the BBC R1 Introducing Stages at Reading & Leeds Festival 2017. Needless to say Ralph's giving Vampires a spin on the Radio KC Indie Show so tune in on Sunday 5th November for the Bonfire Night Special from 5-7pm UK time.










No 9: HVNTER

HVNTER is the musical project of South Wales singer-songwriter and producer Jamie Willetts. His debut track Blood quickly racked up over 30,000 plays on Soundcloud within the first few weeks and recently he released his Ghost EP.

Always at the vanguard, Ralph's giving it a pre-release spin on the Radio KC Indie Show Sunday October 29th. Tune in 5-7pm UK time.
