    Andreya Triana

    Giants - Bonus CD Edition

    Soulful Londoner Andreya Triana returns with the release of her highly anticipated album, 'Giants' through Counter Records. 

    Produced by Matt Hales (Lianne La Havas, Paloma Faith), 'Giants' is an elegant melting pot of styles, sounds and themes effortlessly brought together by a voice both distinct and timeless in equal measure.

    Bursting with refreshing honesty and a raw vulnerability, 'Giants' transcends a variety of moods, with "Paperwalls" making its entrance with attitude to spare. ‘Gold’ etches itself into the listeners’ mind with its layered hums and chants, a constant drum that is Andreya's testament to her love of music and the best times of her life. The heartfelt "Everything You Never Had Pt. II", is dedicated to Andreya’s mother who raised her during tough times, while "Lullaby" is an infectiously catchy and uplifting escape from the grey months ahead, perhaps surprisingly so as it’s a reflection on her adolescence and her album of the decade 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill' which would drag her out of the bad times, a reassurance that someone else knew what she was going through at the time. Finally, "Keep Running" builds with its thudding heartbeat incessantly driving the track forward shows off Andreya’s stunning story-telling skills.

    Andreya says: “I'm really into honest storytelling in songwriting and hopefully painting a picture for the listener. Writing lots of love songs for the album didn't really appeal to me so I drew inspiration from many other areas of my life. Working with Matt Hales was such an amazing experience. I went to his studio in LA with an open mind and wanting to create something that had its own sound... Giants is what came out of the process.

    Submotion Orchestra

    Alium

      Since forming in Leeds in 2009 Submotion Orchestra have carved out their own special place in the UK's ever-changing musical landscape. The seven piece band's fusion of bass heavy electronica, jazz, soul and much more besides has made them a favourite of the likes of Gilles Peterson, Trevor Nelson and Jo Whiley, whilst their live show has seen them play festivals around the world and sell out venues such as London's famous KOKO.

      Now following two critically acclaimed albums, Finest Hour and Fragments, Submotion Orchestra return bigger, brighter and bolder than ever with 'Alium'; their first album for Counter Records. 'Alium' sees the band in an expansive mood as the interplay between their electronic and acoustic sounds has become more natural than ever, whilst Ruby Wood's vocals continue to find new levels of emotion.

      Written over two years in the remote Welsh countryside with just 'passing sheep and a rusty ping-pong table for company' and recorded in Brighton, 'Alium' has been a true group effort with every band member involved in the writing and recording process, something that is reflected in the album's varied nature.

      From neon synth strafed opener 'Awakening', to the bruising 21st century soul of 'Time Will Wait', the tense cinematic drama of 'Bring Back The Wolf', 'The Hounds’' late night / early morning jazz workout and the unashamedly big pop moment that is 'Trust Lust', Alium may be a dazzlingly eclectic record showcasing the band’s myriad talents, but thanks to producer Ruckspin's deft touch remains a satisfyingly coherent whole.



      Spokes

      Everyone I Ever Met

        Spokes have played festivals including The Big C1hill and End Of The Road and have completed three full UK tours prior to signing to Counter, in addition to dates with Everything Everything.

        They are one of XFM’s New Bands Of The Year, with additional support from Radio 1, Radio 2 and 6 Music.

        “Great rewards surely await the angelic Spokes” - Clash Magazine
        “... pastoral indie with a post-rock veneer that builds to glorious climaxes” – NME.

        The self-titled Ape School debut album is a lesson in glamatic pop and expansive sound soared by Michael Johnson's distinctive croon, also heard on Daedelus' "Make It So" and "For Withered Friends". On this extraordinary debut, Michael combines delicious melodies and vocal harmonies that would do Fleet Foxes proud.
