Another Sky

I Slept On The Floor

    Another Sky are a London-based band fronted by Catrin Vincent, guitarist Jack Gilbert, bassist Naomi Le Dune and drummer Max Doohan. Their searing, cinematic songs have something vital to say; they touch on austerity, mental health and toxic masculinity, with an impressive deftness of touch, thereby establishing themselves as a vital voice on the UK’s alternative-rock scene.

    They have already graced ‘Later… with Jools Holland’ and earned fans from the likes of Biffy Clyro, Snow Patrol, Elbow and BBC Radio 1’s Greg James.

    Catrin wryly credits their early success to the fact her distinctive vocals are frequently mistaken for those of a male singer. “People say I sound like a man. Maybe that means they’ll listen.”

    Tame Impala (Kevin Parker) has officially announced his fourth studio album, The Slow Rush out via Fiction Records. The Slow Rush was recorded between Los Angeles and Parker’s studio in his hometown of Fremantle, Australia. The twelve tracks were recorded, produced and mixed by Parker. The Slow Rush is Parker’s deep dive into the oceans of time, conjuring the feeling of a lifetime in a lightning bolt, of major milestones whizzing by while you’re looking at your phone, it’s a paean to creation and destruction and the unending cycle of life. Parker told the New York Times earlier this year, “A lot of the songs carry this idea of time passing, of seeing your life flash before your eyes, being able to see clearly your life from this point onwards. I’m being swept by this notion of time passing. There’s something really intoxicating about it.” The album cover was created in collaboration with photographer Neil Krug and features a symbol of humanity all but swallowed whole by the surrounding environment, as though in the blink of an eye.

    Tame Impala is Kevin Parker. His last album Currents was released in 2015 earning him a BRIT Award for Best International Group, a second GRAMMY nomination and went platinum in Australia, Gold in the USA, Canada, UK, France, Netherlands and Belgium, and enjoyed word-wide critical acclaim. The New York Times labeled it a "a tour de force" and Pitchfork said, "nearly every proper song on 'Currents' is a revelatory statement of Parker's range and increasing expertise as a producer, arranger, songwriter, and vocalist while maintaining the essence of Tame Impala." NPR noted, "[Parker] advocates for constant reinvention... That commitment to evolution helps make Tame Impala an unlikely but worthy candidate for major stardom."

    Nick Mulvey X Keynvor

    In The Anthropocene

      In collaboration with Nick Mulvey, Sharp’s Brewery is making music that will protect British coastlines from plastic pollution and reduce single plastic usage, in a music industry first. The Cornish Brewery and the Mercury Music Prize nominee have today released the first track pressed onto a record made from recycled plastic, which has been washed up on Cornish beaches.

      Sharp’s Brewery and Nick Mulvey announced the first of its kind collaboration with the launch of the track, titled In the Anthropocene. Lyrically the song explores themes of responsibility and freedom in this time of urgent ecological and social crisis (and opportunity), aka ‘the Anthropocene’.

      Proceeds from the track, including from sales of the limited-edition record pressed onto recycled plastic and digital streams*, will go to Surfers Against Sewage to help protect the Cornish coastlines from pollution, including plastic waste.

      The launch of this innovative new ‘ocean vinyl’ comes after last year’s signing of ‘Keynvor’, the music artist’s name given to the Atlantic Ocean, by Universal Music.

      The music industry is blighted by sustainability challenges from tackling single-use plastic cups at gig venues to unsustainable vinyl production practices. The new campaign from Sharp’s Brewery, and the first playable track made from recycled ocean plastic aims to give music lovers the chance to own something that’s made out of ‘single use’ plastic, that they’ll treasure forever.

      Nick Mulvey, Singer-songwriter: ‘’I've always loved the wildness of the Cornish coast and it feeds something deep in me every time I'm there. My music is about knowing who - or what - we are, right at the core. Aliveness itself, conscious. These times of urgent global crisis are demanding we re-examine ourselves and the world and raise ourselves, individually and collectively, to match the Earth, this wonder-organism from which we are not, and never have been, separate.

      Hugo Tagholm, CEO of Surfers Against Sewage: ‘We are excited to be partnering with Sharp’s Brewery again to raise vital funds to protect our coastlines from plastic pollution and other environmental hazards. Keynvor, as a musical artist, and the new ‘ocean vinyl’, which uses plastic pollution and turns it into something positive, is a powerful way to help us raise money and continue to spread our message.’
