Sinead Harnett

Birthdays, Dalston, 21st Oct 2014

With just one EP under her belt and a sneaky collaboration with Disclosure in 2013, Sinead Harnett is one artist you need to pop on your iPod today. Having been selective in all the right ways in securing herself a loyal and dedicated following, she’s no household name just yet. Delicate, sultry and a younger spin on all those loving on the new Jessie Ware album ‘Tough Love’, Miss Harnett’s music is eargasmic pleasure you can’t help but love.

Glued to her glossy tones, her pretty ‘girl next door’ features and immaculate outfit choice of sheer black trousers and added silver sparkle, Sinead has all the qualities of a ready made star.

From the stunning collection of ten songs played, it’s hard to pick the stand out track. Showcasing new material, ‘I’ll remain‘ is a heartfelt ballad and with her Disclosure feature track ‘Boiling‘, the vibes were on point. Sinead O’Clock was a touching 40 minute set, allowing her to shine on her first ever headline show. Whilst she claimed she wished it was a rehearsal, she pulled it out the bag despite some nerves. Admittedly open of her downfall, Sinead’s potential could lead her to being the next UK’s biggest export.

If a debut isn’t a cause for celebration, she whipped up an exclusive with UK’s producer Man of the moment, MNEK. Baby was a fantastic contribution of her headline and to many that got to share that moment, it was an honour.

Download N.O.W now! After all, there’s no other way than taking the high wire to paradise right? Sinead is gearing up for her tour with Gorgon City in just a couple of weeks. Make sure you get your tickets N.O.W

All About She

All About She

Birthdays, Dalston, 8th Oct 2014

***

I’ll take you there with just one touch’ was the promise made by All About She at Birthdays, Dalston. Low key and an undiscovered act for many, All About She are a London based Trio consisting of two record producers (James Tadgell and Jon Clare), and making the ‘She’ of the group, Vanya Taylor.  Signed to Disturbing London, their relationship bloomed in the making of Tinie Tempah’s debut album Discovery. Taylor also worked alongside roster artist Jessie J as a backing singer, and created an ‘It’s My Party’ remix for the deluxe edition of Alive. But it’s the big news of Calvin Harris snapping them up for a feature on his next album Motion which proves this three-piece’s destiny will be huge.

The set comprised of their debut EP Go Slow, shavings of new material and a cover of the notorious Clean Bandit track ‘Rather Be’ to gather hype.  A thick haze obscured their arrival to the stage, but the array of multi-colour LED lights quickly lifted the smog to reveal Taylor’s dazzling entrance of a turquoise custom made two piece. Elegantly dressed Taylor still gave a touch of her Alan Carr ‘Dutty Wine’ rendition when she grabbed her microphone stand to perform some body-grinding shapes.

Ground-shaking garage with brakes locked in soul-funk, All About She’s vibes are upbeat and playful with a slither of familiarity. Speaking of familiarity, a debut show always attracts other artists – this time it was Girls Aloud member Nicola Roberts and Roc Nation’s pop-princess Alexa Goddard who came down to show their support. Let’s not forget the appearance of smooth soul man Jacob Banks joining the stage for ‘I Can’t Wait’. No encore needed, they kept the vibe rolling as they let off a perfectly timed confetti cannon during their most known track ‘Higher’ which peaked at No.5 on the UK Dance Charts. All About She certainly lived up to the promise. This is music we trust!

Ella Eyre

 

Ella Eyre

The Institute, Birmingham, 1st Oct 2014

****

“I go by the name Ella Eyre!” A girl who was under the radar before her ‘Waiting All Night’ smash hit feature with London’s awesome foursome Rudimental. This drum and Bass collective snapped her up as their support act, closely followed by another slot with record producer/ singer songwriter Naughty Boy. About to take the reins with her own headline show, Ella prove she’s no novice when it comes to tour life. Whether it a support slot or her own show this girl gives is 110% on stage.

 

Fuelled with adrenaline from the get go, Eyre’s monstrous vocals and high-flying body confidence got the crowd riled. Taking stage in a feather winged jacket and figure hugging body suit was a stellar combination which was later removed when she exposed her toned abs mid set in a Nike sports bra. Please note, no RedBull was used in the making of her set but she would certainly be great for a campaign advertisement.

 

Reception from the crowd resonated in this 500 capacity venue as soon as the doors opened. Both support acts Joel Baker and Kimberley Ann received a warm welcome despite a few teething problems. Evident changes have been made since her debut show at XOYO London with new additions including latest single ‘Comeback’ and b-side ‘Bullet For You’. A cheeky switch from her renowned Basement Jaxx cover Good Luck to Jermaine Stewart hit ‘We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off’ was another refreshing change.

 

This tour was originally organised to coincide with the release of her debut album ‘Feline’ but following new touring commitments with Bastille in the states has been pushed back until early 2015.

 

There are currently a few tickets left for this twelve date UK tour, so make sure you grab a ticket today. This show is one  not to be missed in especially such an intimate setting.
