Cures And Curses’ ‘Lost Out’ Is One You Can’t Miss Today

Cures and Curses’ killer new single ‘Lost Out’ is a beat heavy, atmospheric listening delight. The alternative rock duo made up of Aaron Akpojaro and David Blackburne are based in Liverpool, UK. ‘Lost Out’ has that emotionally driven sound that we are always drawn to, the lyrics are full of sentiment, the heart-stopping choruses are beautifully balanced out by those moody and moving verses, this seems like a rock duo that can (and will) provide more and more great tracks in the coming months.

Cures and Curses’ EP is set for release mid 2018 with no official release date as of yet. This track ‘Lost Out’ is the follow up to their debut track ‘Fall Apart, Crash Together’ which you can check out Here

I think after listening to these first couple of tracks by Cures and Curses anyone who is interested in the type of music we rave about over here at NoiseFlash will be eagerly awaiting another release from the guys, very impressive stuff. These guys really are one to watch in 2018, stoked for what’s next.

English Metalcore band Architects have released their new video and track ‘Doomsday’ to the world today! It’s so good to see the guys back in action releasing some new music! The single is the first bit of material they have released since the tragic passing of founding member, lead guitarist and primary  songwriter Tom Searle last year. It’s great to see Architects back with that beautiful Metalcore sound we’ve come to love over the years, it’s choppy guitar rhythms, epic light and shade of heavy and melodic beauty, still going so strong and definitely doing Tom proud with this amazing new track Doomsday!

Watch The New Don Broco Video ‘Technology’

We’re all pretty addicted to our mobile phones and social media right? I know I’m guilty of it, I find it hard to get through a full day without scrolling through Instagram or opening them Snapchat stories. Don Broco’s new video for their current single ‘Technology’ touches heavily on that addiction and how its taken over modern society and that no matter what is going on around us we need our mobile phones to hand at all times!

In the new video we see through the eyes of someone who is glued to their phone during an alien invasion whilst people around take selfies with aliens before getting blown to smithereens. I think its a great video and something that makes a great statement and at the same time its really entertaining and thrilling video. Frontman Rob Damiani said about the video “Technology is about a casual swipe through Instagram that ended up in me unfollowing a load of mates. In reality my friends are not vain, self obsessed, PDA loving show-offs so I’m blaming social media and the habitual nature of sharing every waking moment of your life online”

Also there is going to be a video game to accompany the video! Looking forward to checking that out, Damiani added “We’re all addicted to our phones, so for the video we thought it would be fun to see if an alien invasion was enough for us to put the phones down for a minute… turns out it’s not. In the video game you get to fight off the alien army as each band member and I shoot microphones out my hands which is pretty awesome.”

Don Broco have also announced that State Champs and Counterfeit will be joining them at their huge show at Alexandra Palace on November 11th

Watch the video below, the lyrics are underneath if you want to check them out too!

take it back back –
turn back the technology
take it back back
back in time to when i didn’t find that
all of my friends bothered me
back back
take it back back
go now
take it back back

still the world keeps changing
and) soon there wont be no one else
(still) the world keeps changing
wont be no one else
need to put all of ya/me out there
hope that someone cares
not the only one left right?
I’m not the only one left right?
i gotta face the world keeps changing
there wont be nobody else
need to hold myself together
one foot forward than the next
keep me moving on left, right

Grumble Bee Interview – ‘Music was the one thing I always felt naturally interested in, whatever my mood’

Here at Noise Flash Music we are in love with the music that British Alternative solo project Grumble Bee is gracing the world with, the power and beauty that hits you during listening to a Grumble Bee track is something rare.

The solo project is that of Jack Bennett, releasing the EP, ‘Disconnect’ in 2016, Produced by Kris Crummett and all instrumentation, writing and performing by Jack (Impressive right?) . These breath-taking 5 tracks were all it took for me to fall head over heels. It’s an emotionally driven and intoxicating listen and one that should not be missed by anyone.

So far Grumble Bee has released three tracks in 2017 (‘Red’, ‘Heron(Piano Version)’ and ‘Bravest Soul) and has told me that there will be more to come very soon. With some big shows coming up around the UK and his performances promising to be filled with energy this artist is a definite must see.

Grumble Bee gives us the best of both worlds, He can hit it hard and full of energy with the best of them but he can also slow it down and make it beautiful and soothing in those stripped back piano versions. If you like it soulful yet tranquil, if you like it addictive and catchy, Grumble Bee has it all. From ballads to hard hitters he’ll knock you off your feet. If you haven’t checked it out yet please do, you will thank me for the recommendation I can promise you that.

It was an honour to catch up with one of my favourite artists around in the following interview.

Q:What brought you into the music world? Has it always been your ambition?
A: My parents gave me the opportunity from a young age, to try out a bunch of different instruments, and I guess I just found a passion for it since really early on. I’ve had the chance to do a bunch of different things too, but music was the one thing I always felt naturally interested in, whatever my mood.
Q: Tell us more about your latest single ‘Bravest Soul’
A: This song is one of the more, “straight to the point” type of songs, which I don’t massively tend to do! ‘Bravest Soul’ is pretty much about a break-up in a relationship, and it was really easy to write – in fact I probably wrote the majority of the verse/chorus & all of the lyrics in the same night because of the situation I was in! Sometimes songs come about that way, built off a passion for something, but a lot of the time for me personally – songs are based around what I think are interesting melodies/rhythms.
Q: What would you say is your favourite song to perform for your fans?
A: Recently it’s been ‘Francium’, (Piano Version) at some of my acoustic shows, it just really started to get ridiculous – to the point where I’d stop singing and just listen to them singing bits. It’s unreal!
Q: Who’s Grumble Bee listening to right now?
A: Right now, I’ve been over-playing “Stuck in my throat” by Reuben, some new tracks from Allen Stone & some City & Colour for acoustic guitar references, while I’m working on my acoustic recordings.
Q: After touring with some great bands (Emarosa just to name one!) and playing some awesome festivals, What would you say has been the highlight of your music career so far?
A: I’ve had a great opportunity to play alongside some of my favourite bands, both full band & acoustically – but over the last year, the big change that’s probably struck me the most, is the fact that people seem to be able sing back a bunch of my songs live now. It started most noticeably at 2000 Trees festival last year, when I started to realise a bunch of people were into the songs so much they’d sing back every word. I can just remember looking at people to see what they were singing, because I have a tendency to just sing slightly different melodies and vocal phrasing live – which I personally love – but it was crazy trying to keep exactly to the original vocals, after watching people sing along ha!#
Q: What’s next for Grumble Bee? How long until we hear more?
A: I’m working on releasing another acoustic version of an older song in the next few weeks or so, completely different to the original – and then follow that up with a new full band track a few weeks after that.
I’m opening 2000 Trees Festival in 4 weeks time and I’m doing my first acoustic headline show at St Pancras Old Church in London on 27th July – with about 5 tickets left today I believe, so I’m really looking forward to that, and then immediately after it’s Y Not Festival & Fat Lip in Bristol. The plan is to release a double-vinyl this year, with full band tracks on one side and acoustic on the other side – with the intention of releasing my debut album later next year.
