Feeling The Chaos? Discover The Artist Who Wants To Prove That Art Really Does Relieve Stress & Motivates – Dmitry Tells All

February 9, 2021 Admin 0

The combination of a background in Physics & Maths as well as a PHD focusing on brain and nerve fibre dynamics, may not immediately shout art & emotions to many but read on! Contemporary abstract artist Dmitry has successfully managed to overcome his own personal challenge of analytical control combined with natural emotions to release the power of emotional art. It is as if these two opposite spectrums have collided to create a moment of powerful realisation for Dmitry’s art – he captures a moment and expresses his feelings of harmony between the intangible and the tangible through his ‘Emotional Painting’.

Dmitry is an honest and passionate artist who truly believes that art can help us to create positive and powerful emotions. When we sit in front of a piece of art that magically captures our attention it can ignite so many different emotions translated from the artist to us. The German Expressionist Kandinsky reminded us how ‘The artist must train not only his eye but also his sou..

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..

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.

“2020 has been a crazy year. It was set to be a year full of highs – a performance at C2C Festival at The Hydro in Glasgow alongside my favourite artists such as Luke Combs, an EP lau..
