“Change It All,” which follows the viral success of “Sense Of Home,” the title track from his 2015 debut EP. “Sense Of Home” placed prominently on key Spotify playlists, amassing an impressive 8.5 million-plus streams.
It’s been a lifelong journey for the troubadour to reach this point. Growing up on the Mornington Peninsula, a five-minute walk from the ocean, he fell in love with music as a young kid. Storm went from listening to Neil Young and The Beatles to becoming a disciple of Jeff Buckley, City and Colour, and Angus & Julia Stone by high school as well as devouring the works of Jack London. Along the way, he developed a singular style, merging impressive classically inspired finger-picking and a soulful hypnotic vocal delivery equally resonant of alternative, folk and blues.
“I was in a real rut when I wrote this song [“Change It All”]. A sort of slow spinning, downward spiral you can find yourself in when things become monotonous,” he admits. I was quite down about everything. I’m usually an optimistic person, but I wasn’t enjoying music as much as I used to. Then, I got this message from Terry and it really lifted my spirits,” says Harrison.
The track is the latest single from the whimsical debut album“ThroughTheMagic”,whose singles gained local and international radio play, the band sold out of the first print of the album while performing at some of their home country’s leading festivals and venues. Dorin Yanni is one of the most interesting up-and-coming artists to emerge from Tel Aviv’s burgeoning indie music scene. Following her appearance on the local edition of the show The Voice, where she was praised for her distinctive and emotive performances, Dorin set out to write the music that was closest to her heart. After recruiting a talented bunch of musicians to play the violin, banjo, trumpet as well as guitar, bass and drums the newly formed collective began performing under the stage nameDorinYanni and the Band.They have been winning over audiences with their indie-folk charm wherever they played ever since.
Lord Kesseli And The Drums is a band comprising of St. Gallen, Switzerland based maverick multi-instrumentalist Dominik Kesseli and drummer and producer Michael Gallusser. Following on from the release of their self-titled debut EP via celebrated Zurich record label Ikarus Records in the summer of 2016, Lord Kesseli and The Drums have just released their new single, Dear John. The track was recorded at Michael?s QLFM Studios in St Gallen.
Lord Kesseli And The Drums create involved soundscapes with drums, guitar, electronic bass synthesizer and pre-produced samples, which explore stories of human manipulation through consumption, and economics, politics and religion. Drawing from as diverse influences as Beethoven, Portishead, Nirvana, Bon Iver and Radiohead, the band?s sonic output has much in common with the international scene of kraut/psyche/cosmic space cadets such as M83, Connan Mockasin and The School of Seven Bells.
In terms of describing new single Dear John, mastermind Dominik Kesseli defines it as singer-songwriter psycho rave. It mixes narrative lyrical song structure with post electronica textures and atmospherics, and explores the existentialistic breakdown of a tortured soul seeking the redemption of St John. The exploration of religious parables in a secularized context is one of the facets of what is so fascinating about Lord Kesselis output. The suitably haunting video was directed by emerging St Gallen video artist Kaliber and it was filmed on location in the underground of St.Gallen, and in Kalibers studio. Ikarus Records label boss Manuel Clausen features as the protagonist.
Their debut EP release in the UK was met with glowing reviews and airplay, including Tom Ravenscroft featuring the track Arnold on 6Music. Live concert film Waiting For Arnold premiered with Loud and Quiet, and went on to win an award at the prestigious industry festival Austin Music Video Festival in 2016. The band has since toured France, the UK and Switzerland and are about to start touring in Germany. They recently went down a storm at Sounds From The Other City Festival in Manchester.
Lord Kesseli and The Drums will be returning to tour the UK in September 2017.
Debutante is the Zurich-based solo project of Chris Zimmermann, in which they blend droney shoegaze music with pop sensibilites and chiptune synths, ending up sounding like an odd blend of Boris, The Microphones and Giles Corey. With deeply personal lyrics about themes such as depression or growing up in a physically abusive household, the music varies between slow, mellow soundscapes and fuzzy, bass-heavy gut punches that capture their energetic live shows perfectly.
A split EP by Debutante with Leeds-based noise artist Feral about gender dysphoria. The Debutante side is a lengthier slowcore track with lots of glitchy synths that gets quite heavy towards the end.

Iyari is a project of Josep Mateo, member of Karta Atma, Rebery and Silveryarn, apart from other instrumental music projects and experimental like Soundreamer Days and Leth. His music is based on improvisation with guitar. He tries to capture the magic of the moment and explore new paths towards what unknown. These sounds are part of our trip, and they are waiting for us for when we need them most. With his themes he tries to return to this original point of connection where all the sounds flow and you can perceive the second music, everything is recorded in a single track; mistakes and indecisions are also part of the magic of moment. His first album "Sura" was recorded in June 2016 presenting a collection of improvisations with guitar where total freedom is the common denominator of sound, in communion with total anarchy in terms of structures and construction of the songs. In October of the same year, "Sons de Tardor" appeared and shows a certain evolution in to sound and Josep's constant search for new paths to express himself through his guitar, he brings to us eight improvisations that explain a story among all of them. In 2017 Iyari starts performing live with concerts in Ronda Barcelona and the Experimental Music Festival of Barcelona (LEM Festival) where Josep elaborates a presentation of his songs incorporating other elements such as loop pedals, drum machines and visual support with projections. In this 2018 he edits "Ostara" which is a step forward in his career recording the whole album with a loop pedal and using the effects to create hypnotic environments, other landscaping, but always looking for beauty and the mystery with its six strings.

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.”
