Marky Edison

Debut EP From Catherine McGrath

Released just before Christmas through Warner Bros. Records, One showcases the stunning vocals and songwriting capabilities of this young artist through four acoustic tracks including the three original songs 'Hell Would Have To Freeze Over', 'Cinderella' and 'She'll Never Love You', as well as a beautiful version of Jessie Ware's 2014 hit single 'Say You Love Me'.

Born in County Down, now living in London, McGrath grew up surround by Irish folk music but found her love in the new era of country music. Drawing influences from the likes Rascal Flatts, Kacey Musgraves, Dan + Shay and Maddie & Tae as much as pop stars Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran, McGrath delivers a contemporary country-pop sound that attracts a youthful audience.

In February McGrath will be supporting The Saturdays’ Una Healy for two special shows playing at London’s St Pancras Old Church on the 15th before returning to Ireland to play The Sugar Club Dublin on the 16th.

Rückwater Announce Bonehead EP

As you would expect from any act on the Secret Entertainment label, Rückwater play a completely unconventional take on heavy rock. They cite the influence of Down, Corrosion of Conformity, and Queens Of The Stone Age, and if you like those then you’ll like Rückwater.

Formed in 2010, The Finnish stoner rock trio boast not one, but two, lead singers and lay down a sweet groove of churning guitars throughout Bonehead.

The opening 10 minute instrumental, ‘Once More With Feeling’, is part-shoegaze, part-goth, part ‘70s-Kiss, and part-Explosions In The Sky.

While the one minute long ‘Super Frustration’ is death ‘n’ roll worthy of Entombed at their peak, leaning heavily on first wave hardcore punk with a finger clickin’ toe tappin’ groove.

Jussi Vehman (Vocals/ Bass), Make Makkonen (Vocals/ Guitars), and Jape Makkonen (Drums) release their third EP on Friday February 24th following on from 2011’s So Far Out… and 2013’s What’s In The Box?
