Metal Sensation ‘In Signs’, deliver a thundering new single ‘Knock Knock’

February 6, 2021 monkjackblog 0

One of the best metal songs of the year has just been released, and it hasn’t been written by Metallica or Slipknot, but by the Ukrainian band In Signs. This trio first formed in 2014 as a post-grunge band and only ever played their own self-penned material, such was the calibre of their song writing.

They released 5 infectious singles in 2020, such as ‘Blood for Blood’ which mixed the lightening guitar riffs of Deep Purple with the addictive pop melodies of The Beatles.

“I listened to The Beatles, Oasis, Scorpions, Deep Purple from my childhood, so I believe they were the biggest influences. But I started writing songs being inspired by Three Days Grace who are playing post-grunge; by Dallas Green from City and Colour who are playing indie-folk. I don’t know why but these genres were mixed in my head.” Arsen, In Signs

In Signs have carried on their stupefying run of form with their release of their 2021 single ‘Knock Knock’. This scintillating song begins with sombre vocals that i..

February 5, 2021 monkjackblog 0

Chris Andreucci is set to take up the gauntlet laid down by fellow scots Lewis Capaldi and Paolo Nutini, and command radio waves on both sides of The Atlantic. The Glasgow-based Chris managed to bag himself a record deal with the Nashville label ‘Century Music Group’ in 2019, with the label’s president expressing huge admiration for Chris’s pristine musical talents.

Despite not yet releasing a full studio album, Chris has already performed at some of Scotland’s most prestigious venues like the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, where a little band called Oasis were first discovered. 2020 was set to be the year of Chris Andreucci, with plans for major festival dates, as well as his intention to move out to Nashville to try and conquer the American soundwaves, but COVID-19 intervened.

February 4, 2021 monkjackblog 0

Stourbridge based hip-hop artist and label CEO Saint released his debut EP ‘Lucid’ on January 30th which he describes as revolutionary rhythm.

Bringing a unique mix of laid back beats, punchy rap, and motivational lyrics, Saint is different to any other artist trying to make their way in the UK hip-hop scene. He hopes to use his music for change, bringing a sense of positivity and hope with his sound.

The five track EP has already gained support from BBC Introducing, and Saint only hopes to gain more publicity in 2021. An all-round music fanatic, he also owns the record label ‘MusicalKillah Records’, which his EP was released from.

‘Adrenaline’, the first track off the EP, aptly kicks things off with short, quick burst of seamless verses, before making way for ‘Back Then’, which explores reflecting on your younger days and drawing upon the positivity of that time.

‘Changes’ talks about the power of your words and how they can affect other people, something that Saint cares a lot ..

Araya Maps Internal Journal in Debut Album ‘Atlas’

February 3, 2021 monkjackblog 0

January saw the release of singer songwriter Araya’s debut album, Atlas. The Brooklyn based artist has been gaining critical acclaim from the music press and distributors alike.

Having written music from a young age, Araya perfects his skills in this album, which charts his quest for self knowledge. This reflection is particularly evident on the track ‘Eden’, which suggests that self acceptance is Araya’s route to happiness.

Atlas, with its soulful vocals and slick production, has the makings of a successful, soul-tinged pop album. The album journeys from the funky keys of the upbeat ‘Dancer’, to the mellow guitar in the reflective ‘Sad Song’.

‘Color Palette’ is a fun, bouncy celebration of colour, but it’s the deep honesty of ‘Eden’ which makes the track my favourite.
