Above is the current single from Lontalius, entitled ‘Glow’.

 

Lontalius (New Zealand’s Eddie Johnston) will release his debut full-length, ‘I’ll Forget 17’, on 25th March 2016. In the build up to the release, all tracks from the album are gradually being unveiled and made available to stream via his official website, lontalius.com.
Lontalius2016
Lontalius asks the existential questions that haunt all of us at that transitional age and couches them in these forlorn yet resonant pop songs.
In the short time that he has been making music, Lontalius has gone from making bedroom-pop remixes to making fully developed, vulnerable and relatable love songs; made fans out of fellow New Zealand stars Lorde and Troye Sivan; collaborated with Ty Dolla $ign and Ryan Hemsworth (including releasing several tracks on Hemsworth’s Secret Songs); and garnered praise from fans and press alike.

‘I’ll Forget 17’ is now available for pre-order and will be available on all digital retailers and physical formats on March 25th via Partisan Records.

Intro’ing some new music I’ve happened to come across down in London town..

Rob Johnson is a musician from London – whom I recently had the luck to stumble upon playing at the ‘London Guitar Night’ at the Troubadour… which happens on the 1st Sunday of each month. This very talented light fingered acoustic genius had the room captivated in what can only be deemed as a meditative awe.. well worth checking him out live! You won’t be disappointed..

Listen to more tracks from his album HERE

Rob’s website can be found HERE 

Tweet some love @robjohnsonmusic

Tweet me some love.. @ohDearyme 😉

Also highly recommended is from Eastbourne’s Jack Turner who from the looks of his website is busy cultivating his debut album.. I don’t have much info about him.. but after having a peek at his Facebook can tell you that he is male… and likes food. And doesn’t seem to like modern day pop music – so I’m guessing he’s not a fan of X-Factor. All good then 😉

Join his Facebook HERE

Good stuff… enjoy
