Just when you thought 2017 was going to be a repeat of crappy old 2016, along comes Ninth Of May to save the day.
The completely independent, powerhouse Brisbane 5-piece are back doing what they do best with the release of their new single, and corresponding film clip, ‘Bend’. Whilst it is a slight deviation from their previous endeavours, the super heavy guitars, pounding drums, hooky vocals and synth bass of ‘Bend’ are all undeniably “Ninth Of May”. One listen through will reinforce the fact that ‘Bend’ really is a dichotomy, beautiful yet heavy as F! Recorded and produced 100% in-house, ‘Bend’ is an example of a band truly defining their sound and doing things purely on their own terms. Playing to their strengths and relying solely on their own instincts and experience, ‘Bend’ is possibly the strongest release from Ninth Of May to date.
Age Of Aquarius have released a second video from their Dawn Of The Age Of Aquarius debut. It is the dark yet beautiful ballad Mercury Rising, here fitted with simple and effective imagery. Have a look:
Just to show that the Rock Company label is indeed serving Music For All Moods, here are the latest videos from their roster:
First is the track Darling Jupiter from Age Of Aquarius. Expect their album early February 2017:
Next is the recently released ‘HAUNTED is the house’ from Earthshine’s album Ghost In The Machine. Check the chilled and suspense electronic music:
And last but not least are Forest Field. Their current album Lonely Desert is raising their profile fast. So check out the video EPK for the album:
One of my favourite places in England has to be Stonehenge and Earthshine have created a track that compliments both Avebury and the henge, and also does it complete justice by the piece called Secret of the Stones. The arrangement starts in an almost Jarre style, then transposes itself into a really ancient melody of time and memory, it is as if musically we have found a portal to the past. This fluid and fascinating composition is one of the best on the album, I could listen to this for hours.
So a little suspense should be in order here:

Of course everybody favours different tracks from our various records. But we think it is fair to assume that some songs are very popular amongst our loyal followers. Well, and to honour that, we have made some video’s for some of them. Enjoy!
