Pershagens new album, Tarfala, was born in an apartment in Piteå, Sweden, between 2015-2017 and in a cheap hotel room in Los Angeles where several of the members lived together for two months in 2016. The title of the album, Tarfala, is taken from the area which is located near the Kebnekajse mountain in Sweden.
The instrumental music creates different moods. Balancing between despair and desperation, at the same time, accommodate something hopeful and beautiful, with a splash of mystery added.
Pershagen can be both a soundtrack to everyday life, something that accompanies one's day dreams or a temporary reality escape.
"We think the great thing about instrumental music is that you have more space to create your own story or picture of what the music is about"
"Det du söker finns inte här" is the first single from upcoming album, Tarfala, Out May 16.
"We are two brothers from Memphis, TN, who have been playing music together for over ten years. John Hash plays the guitar, bass, and handles all engineering duties. Dave Hash plays the drums, aux percussion, and keys. We recently decided to start making DIY records together and officially released "Calm Before the Dawn" on March 15th of this year. We are super happy with the responses we have received so far, and we look forward to learning from this experience and making our second project even better!
We started writing the early pieces of "Calm Before the Dawn" back in 2014, and after many setbacks and curveballs thrown at us by life, we were finally able to complete the tracking process in 2017. John Hash plays guitar and bass, while Dave Hash plays the drums and keys on the record. John recorded all tracks in a Memphis, TN garage, and mixed and mastered the project in 2018 on his home setup. DIY ethics are a huge part of what brokencompass does and we are proud of what we've done so far and are eager to see how far we can take things."

The Zkeletonz sound is postpop; postpunk-style subversion of modern pop, so everything they do is independent. 100% DIY. The music is self-produced, self-mixed and self-mastered. The gigs are backed by colourful psychedelic skull-themed animations. The band have appeared at Ronnie Scott's in Soho, Hoxton Sq Bar & Kitchen, Stockwell Festival, Fuse Festival, Peckham Festival, Well Street Against Racism street carnival and Plaza Latina, a huge outdoor celebration of London's Latin American community.
Their 1st video 'Trouble' was broadcast on Channel 4 with no music industry support. Celebrity fans include hip hop DJ Tim Westwood, the poet and podcaster Scroobius Pip and the Wasps rugby winger Josh Bassett. The band host a regular postpop show on Boogaloo Radio, where other presenters include Suede, The Magic Numbers, Stiff Records founder Dave Robinson and Creation Records founder Alan McGee. And their legendary annual Halloween Party takes place at The George Tavern, a 700 year old pub mentioned in the writing of Charles Dickens, Samuel Pepys and Geoffrey Chaucer.
'Always' is the third single from postpop trio Zkeletonz. It builds on momentum from their first two releases ’Trouble’ and ‘Don't Cover It Up’, which received support from Sunday Brunch, BBC Introducing and the Birmingham Mail. This new release has already secured radio play from John Kennedy on Radio X.
Despite overt sentimentality, 'Always' is not a classic love song. It tells the story of a partner's move to the big city after months and years of making things work long distance. 'Always' was the 1st ever postpop song Zkeletonz wrote together at Kafri Studios in London's East End.
Marva Von Theo is an Electropop / Synthwave duo formed in 2016 by the Athens-based singer-songwriter Marva Voulgari and the Vienna-based composer-producer Theo Foinidis.
Their Debut Album “Dream within a Dream” was released early in 2018. The 12 songs on their Album, lean towards an electronic sound that incorporates a variety of influences ranging from the music of the 80’s until today. Darkwave sounds, Jazz harmonies, Rock and Dance drum beats resonate together and mature into something darkly romantic.
The vocals weave this electronic veil with soul, trip-hop, and pop textures, retaining an inner tension that seduces the listener and drifts him along in a sentimental, melancholic trip inside the personal stories that are concealed in the lyrics.
The passion of Marva Von Theo for experimentation is evident in their compositions, seeking a way to surpass the identification or imitation of one specific genre and offer the listener the opportunity to feel and interpret the music differently upon every listen. Like a song within a song, like a “Dream within a Dream”.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
