KALEO



Combining an inventive mixture of groovy indie-pop, blues and Rock & Roll is Iceland’s Kaleo. Formed just 18 months ago, members Jökull Júlíusson (vocals/guitar), Davíð Antonsson (drums/vocals), Daníel Ægir Kristjánsson (bass) and Rubin Pollock (lead guitar) have experienced considerable success and earned quite the buzz in the Icelandic musical landscape. Last year’s single “Vor í Vaglaskógi” helped ignite their fire and since then, they’ve had three No.1 hit singles in Iceland. Their self-titled debut album peaked at No.1 and they were nominated in every possible category at the Icelandic Listeners Awards, where they won for Best Singer, Newcomer of the Year and Best Album. They also won the Best Newcomer Award at the Icelandic Music Awards, solidifying their connection with the fans in Iceland. Kaleo have performed at a number of festivals, signed with the Sena record label and have received airplay support on multiple radio stations and are currently being courted by numerous labels and publishers.

LITTLE BASTARD



Sydney, Australia’s Little Bastard is a mighty seven-piece punk-string band that incorporates guitars, bass, fiddle, banjo, harmonica, mandolin, beats and a load of voices and memorable tunes that will undoubtedly draw you into their sound. Formed just two years ago, they’ve rapidly become one of Australia’s most entertaining and undeniable live acts as members Ross Tipper, Johnny Took, Ed Rowe, Daniel D’arcy, Trevor Davies, Liam Hoskins and Matty Took give it their all on stage. Their self-titled debut album (FourIIFour) has drawn inspiration of everyone from Earl Scruggs and Neil Young to Bob Dylan and Fleetwood Mac and fans have compared them to the likes of Los Angeles’ Flogging Molly, Australia’s The Smith Street Band and Chicago’s The Tossers. The Bastards, as they are also known as in Sydney, smashed out their debut album in just eight days with producer Lachlan Mitchell (The Jezebels).

JÚNÍUS MEYVANT

image

Júníus Meyvant is the artist name of Vestmann Islands born singer-songwriter Unnar Gísli Sigurmundsson. In his early 20s, he stumbled upon a beat up guitar at his parent’s house and started experimenting with it. Using the guitar as an outlet, he managed to tame his inner beast and his sense for songs and melodies that burst like rockets. The uncontrollable urge for writing music and the constant flow of ideas kept him tossing and turning every night and day, forever and a day. For a while, he filtered his ideas through a band that didn’t live up to his creative requirements so he decided to pursue his own path under the alter ego Júníus Meyvant. The sound he has created is a rich and afflicted take on freaky folk-pop with a familiar and soulful feel. The feeling you get from listening to the debut single “Color Decay” is equally as comfortable as resting under a thick wool blanket with a hot cup of cocoa or enjoying an exotic beverage on a hot sandy beach far and away. Unnar is currently in the studio working on his debut album (through Record Records who originally signed Of Monsters And Men), which should see release next Spring.

RACING GLACIERS

Racing Glaciers, the five-piece outfit consisting of Tim Monaghan, Danny Thorpe, Matt Scheepers, Simon Andersson and Matt Welch, was originally conceived as an on-off collaboration. Their debut EP was recorded and produced in just five days in a living room, hit No.1 on Bandcamp and help build the band’s UK fan base. In early 2014, Racing Glaciers released their sophomore EP Ahead Of You Forever, which was mixed by Barny Barnicott (Arctic Monkeys) and allowed the band to receive critical acclaim, including reviews by Neon Gold, All Things Go and Clash. The quintet decided it was time to bring in an external producer for their third EP, Don’t Wait For Me, and enlisted the talents of Jolyon Thomas, who has worked with Daughter, Sigur Ross and M83. Together, they have created the spacious stadium sound that Racing Glaciers has always strived for.

THE BLUE VAN

Denmark’s The Blue Van consists of Steffen Westmark (vocals and guitar), Søren Christensen (keyboard, vocals and guitar), Allan Villadsen (bass) and Per Jørgensen (drums and vocals). The quartet started at the young age of 12 when the members were inspired after hearing Jimi Hendrix for the first time in a TV commercial. The Blue Van have seen over 65 music placements, including music featured in the films and trailers of The First Time, Magic Mike, American Reunion, The Boys Are Back, Fright Night and That’s My Boy. The Blue Van has also seen their music placed in a variety of Television shows including Dallas, Hellcats, NCIS, CSI, 90210, Entourage, Hard Times of RJ Berger, Lie To Me, Shameless, Revenge, Body of Proof and Private Practice. Companies such as Samsung, T-Mobile and Red Lobster have made use of their music and the band’s track “There Goes My Love” was featured in the commercial for the initial launch of the Apple iPad. The Blue Van are also two-time BMI TV Music Award winners in 2010 and 2012 for their track “Independence,” which was named the Best TV Theme Song for the show Royal Pains. After releasing five albums to date, they’ve decided this time around to leave the traditional, and the safe, album format behind, in order to release only singles. “Illusion,” The Blue Van’s latest single in a string of ten, is about the point in life when you find “the one” and the anticipation of the life you’ve created together.
