Album review: Colour of Sound

This is a review of the album, Colour of Sound, I did a Derby-based band called Fionas Run a while back. Sadly, according to their twitter page they disbanded earlier this year but I thought I’d share this so as to share their musical talent with everyone. Have a read and enjoy

🙂

A fresh new album by a fresh new Nottingham/Derby band, Fionas Run, full of ten brand new tracks to listen out for. They may well still be in the early years of their band but there’s been a lot of interest in these guys; Ben Boulton, Luke Wheatley, Robert Manrique and Jamie Pickering, all four of whom make Fionas Run. With musical influences from bands like Snow Patrol, Frank Turner and Mumford and Sons try these guys out and see, or hear, how they sound. Ben, Luke, Robert and Jamie are as talented musicians as they are singers, their song-writing can only be described as melodic and they are as diverse as their musical talents.

Also, they look like the type of band that wouldn’t look out of place at either Glastonbury or the Splendour festival, and they have played to packed crowds. Not hard to understand why there’s a big buzz about them right now. They sound like the sort band that could you could hear doing a live lounge-style performance on The Beat on Radio Nottingham.

If you like your music mature and melodic but with an edge and yet still packing all the rock riffs to your ears and hearts content, then this may be the album to put onto your playlist this year. With fresh original tracks’ such as Left at The Alter, Dragonfly and Summer Feeling you’d be forgiven if you easily thought of them as ‘just another teen rock-pop band’.

Wouldn’t be at all surprised if they appeared on the stage at next years’ Splendour Festival.

Birds of Prey and Colour of Sound are at least two of the tracks that we would recommend that you need to listen out for. The band’s new album Colour of Sound is available on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon and Google Play right now. Download and enjoy. Keep an eye out for them when they come to a music venue near you.

Introducing Bria @Metronome, Nottingham, 5/6/19

Bria4

Down on the basement ground the doors opened at 6pm and a small crowd poured into Studio 1 at the Metronome, ready for their gig with upcoming Nottingham musician, Bria Buxton. Better known by her stage-name, Bria. She has been active in the local music scene for the three years now writing, producing and making her own material. Crowds of 30+ gathered themselves to hear her new single Strangest of Lovers which is out on EP/LP right now, courtesy of Denizen Records. Bria is a musical gem in Nottingham’s music scene and has the voice that can cut straight through the crowds. She is a talented songwriter and singer, as a musician she has the incredible ability to bring her words to life through music.

Bria’s voice oozes melody, carries pure emotion and her performance grabbed the attention of the entire room. The entire room was just completely enchanted by her and there was no shortage of love for her. As an artist her vocal ability is of the same quality of the likes of Christina Perrie and Adele and sounds like the type you could hear as the official soundtrack in a hit film. She has worked with the musical great, Gareth Jones, who has worked with Depeche Mode and Madness. Judging by the sound of her music and official single, they have both worked and produced an absolute corker of a song.

Bria3

Can definitely see this doing well on the download. Since 2017 she has been gracing audiences with her beautiful voice, she takes musical influences from First Aid Kit, Jake Bugg and Phoebe Bridgers, all of whom are from Nottingham and have acquired massive followings. When it comes to music, Nottingham is the place to see fresh, new emerging talent. Keep your eye on Bria Buxton, she is an incredibly talented singer and songwriter and is on the road to bigger things. 2019/20 is to be her year. Have a listen and see what you think
