Wicked Wednesday : Ray-bans have Balcony sessions?

by kranARI

Apparently they do. And they’re awesome! The best thing I’ve seen in a long time. Draw a background sheet of London with buses and black cabs driving around while singers strum along and belt out tunes on a balcony top. Whoever came up with this was a genius. Hand the artist a pair or Ray-Bans and let them do their thing…

LAURA MARLING

I ‘ve previously mentioned Laura Marling in a past Feature Friday article, so if you want to see her Ray-Ban session singing “Rambling Man”, click on this link and be transported back in time…

MARINA & THE DIAMONDS

Next up, Marina and the Diamonds front-woman sings “Obsessions”

PEGGY SUE

Another fab British folk duo that I discovered at a Laura Marling gig is Peggy Sue. Here they sing “Yo-mama”

FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE

Fabulous slash weird (confession : her hand movements scare me slightly) – Florence Welsh sings my favourite “Kiss with a fist” from the Isle of Wight ray-ban sessions.

Wicked Wednesday: New Music Video Releases

by kranARI

Check out the following NEW RELEASES happening in the music scene today. Also added the perk of some cool acoustic versions you might enjoy.

florence and the machine

First up we have Florence Welsh from Florence and The Machine with the re-release of “Dog Days are over“. The ethereal quality of this music video and the vocals remind me very much of Feists’ tracks “1,2.3.4” or “I feel it all”.

Florence is a very visual artist when it comes to her videos but the reason you need to know her is because I have a feeling that she’s going to be around for a while. Her constantly evolving style brings much to be anticipated from her in the future.

ellie goulding

For Ellie Goulding fans an acoustic version of Wish I stayed“. The other day I read a great article on Ellie Goulding in the Evening Standard. She has a very interesting past and a very down-to-earth view on life.

Also, The Independent has a fab article on young Goulding you can checkout on their site.

marina and the diamonds

Marina and the Diamonds did an acoustic cover of Hollywood. I still have lots of questions regarding Marina and the Diamonds which will probably be resolved once I do my research on this band. The main one that’s popping out at me at the moment is : is Marina Greek? How cool would that be if she was…(I have totally selfish reasons for thinking that a compatriot of mine could be so popular in the mainstream music scene).
