We got to catch EZA live for the first time at SXSW and needless to say, once is all it took for us to be hooked into her special blend of electronic pop. Get on board people, she's quite special and we're definitely fans.
Stacey Bee is back, adding even more definition to her sweetly endearing empowerment anthem “G.R.L P.W.R” with an accompanying video. Warning! Just don’t be so quick to judge a book by its cover, because there’s every possible chance the spirit of Beatrix Kiddo is lying in wait to kick some serious ass, if need be.
Mayhem came out on top for us as part of the midnighter films set this year at the SXSW 17 Film Festival. If you are missing Steven Yuen in The Walking Dead, you'll love him in this horror comedy flick.
Nate Austin has got quite a lot of everything that we look for in an unsigned, emerging artist. Drive, determination and the hunger to constantly sharpen up his skills to take him where he wants to be.
We couldn’t put on an EQ Music Live event without the key ingredient of a guest DJ stepping in behind the decks. At our February show, headlined by Dragonette the warm-up duties were appointed to Zeke Thomas, whose amazing open format set slayed and had this EQ Music Night partying harder than it ever has before.
For all those naysayers, who put a blight on pop as being somewhat trivial and throwaway (fair do’s some of it is!) but NOT when it falls to The Sound Of Arrows and the magnificent comeback single “Beautiful Life”. As, happen, the full pop splendour it gives will have you circling back on your thoughts and open to change your mind.
From the instant that we first heard newcomer Lostchild’s emotively charged style of electronic pop, it caused us to raise an eyebrow. As much as we had suspected, he came through and gave a truly all round heart-warming performance at EQ Music Live. We were so humbled it was his debut gig too.
The mighty Dragonette where the headline performers at our recent EQ Music Live event in February. They sold-out the venue and played the capacity crowd tracks from their decade in pop, through “I Get Around” to “Hello”. We caught up with Martina and Dan afterwards for a chat back stage and they provided us with some entertaining anecdotes and answers.
