"Fresh off the release of my long-awaited album, Give it a Rest, I’ve been doing the exact opposite of what it’s title suggests. With a new EP waiting in the wings, and releases lined up throughout the year, I will spend 2018 traveling around the globe to write with various producers and artists. Having recently returned from Asia, where I shot three new music videos in late February, I’ll soon be Nashville for a week of writing, followed by three days in Santorini, Greece, where I’ll be attending the Blackrock Songwriting Camp. Mouthful of Shotgun” is about one of those relationships that’s messy and complicated, but the sex is great… so you stick around. This is the first time that ZEALE and I have teamed up on a track, but there’s already more in the mix. His effortless style and ability to capture a mood make him an incredible collaborator."
Raised in Edmonton, Canada, Wilroy takes R&B as his musical starting point. He’s now based in Liverpool, and cites influences ranging from hip-hop to electronic music and jazz. Recently selected by Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Music talent discovery initiative Future Bubblers, and played on BBC Radio 1Xtra, Worldwide FM & Bandcamp Weekly, 2018 looks to be a promising year for the producer.
Too Dark To See The Green, Wilroy’s debut EP serves as a cathartic journey through the arc of heartache, as told through the ghosts of 70’s soul men. His music paints grand, maximalist sonics: tracks change shape and mutate as they go, akin to the evolution of a dream. The EP’s 5 tracks wring out every last drop; from the opening nightmarish strings, and the dungeon-low dirge of the title track, to the liberated, gospel highs of Ascension.
In trance suites by drums, bass, keyboards and guitar musicians explore the depths of space rock, subtle electronic, ambient and even punk-jazz. Euphonic constellations and electric tales arise of foggy tissues of melody, harmony and pulse suspended in weightlessness. Improvising sound spaceport formed in 2012 at Warsaw, Poland.

“When It Started” is the new single byCubs Refrain taken from their upcoming album "Tell Me You Love Me".
"“When It Started” is a plunge into an adolescent state of mind, so writing it definitely sent me back to my teenage years. There are so many emotions flying around at that time, and so many new experiences that are really nostalgic to look back on. I wrote this song on the train on my commute to work, which is the same train I’d take on my escapist trips to the city as a kid, so it really helped channel certain memories.
When you’re young there’s a grand romanticism about running away and leaving everything behind, fuelled by blind courage and young lust. You find yourself faced with situations you didn’t anticipate and learning things that both terrify and excite you. You eventually realize that nobody really knows anything, and retrospectively, it’s kind of hilarious, ‘cause of course you always played it off like you knew it all.
“When It Started” marks the beginning of a story told throughout the album, of a naïve romance and the two kids it swept away. "

It's an album of warm and elegant sounds, scratching the heart and soul of the listener. A work that runs through wilderness, unexplored lands never trodden by human hands. Through listening we find ourselves in a desert devoid of its characteristic and constant wind, driving on non-existent paths, you suddenly find yourself in an oasis where the perspective changes and even the sand seems to take on the color of the sky and thirst suddenly becomes the ' last of the primary needs. The Sax caressing soft carpets of Synth, nocturnal atmospheres through the time gap that separates the vintage from the traditional electronic sound.
"Granchite Yumtruso PT 2" closes a cycle of sounds that gradually stratify with exotic and colored atmospheres, with distant echoes that rest on long carpets with an antique flavor. The voice of Ada Doria in "Wilderness Falling" and "Cosmic egg traveling blues" seems to come out of an 1870 gramophone as it disperses vibrations in the desert.
The sax of Fabio Leonardi paints well-defined shades of color. Notable orchestral arrangements of Roberto Mangoni in "Cosmic egg traveling blues". The songs were recorded at Dogana D'acqua Studio. The work has been mixed and mastered by Francesco Landucci @ Poderino Recording Studio.
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.”
