Introducing Marianas Trench…

We Brumoters love a good sassy, group of musicians and our recent obsession Marianas Trench are no different!

Not only are these lads able to pen incredible songs (most with a hint of sass – including their newest tune Pop 101, which references Justin Timberlake, Ke$ha, Mumford & Sons, Jason Derulo and more!), but they’re also pretty sassy on Twitter!

The Canadian pop rock band is made up of (from Left to Right) – Mike Ayley (Bassist & vocalist), Josh Ramsay (Lead Singer & rhythm guitarist – who also helped pen Carly Rae Jepsen’s summer hit ‘Call Me Maybe), Ian Casselman (Drummer & backing vocalist) & Matt Webb (Lead guitarist & vocalist), who we believe are going to take over the UK with their incredible tracks (though this is as soon as they decide to come to the UK… that’s right lads, we’re waiting!).

Although a few of our Brumoters had found this group nearly 7 years ago, when the band released their debut studio album – they only recently re-discovered the band after the release of their latest tune

And they lads are yet to officially release their albums and tour over here in the UK.

Though if the group are to announce a UK/European tour, we will announce the details for you all!

With three albums and two EP’s under their belt, the band have a large arsenal of amazing tracks for you all to check out – like Shake Tramp (the video is just as hilarious as the track title) and Desperate Measures, both of which you’ll be able to listen to via the video below!

The group’s most recent track ‘Pop 101’ is currently available to purchase on iTunes & Amazon, so why not listen to it below before purchasing it!

Kingsland Road – Dirty Dancer EP

After a stint on last year’s X Factor and writing with some AMAZING music producers, Kingsland Road are back with their debut single AND EP for you to feast your ears on.

At Brumotions, we are here to give you a track by track breakdown of what to expect for the 4-track EP and we have to say that we were more than pleasantly impressed!

Dirty Dancer:

As the lead single from the EP – Dirty Dancer is instantly catchy and shows off the group’s fun personalities. It’s a great summer anthem, which will put you in a good mood and leave you singing along.

Though we’re still not sure what a Cherry Chancer is… (Comment your ideas below!)

The song is somewhat different to the sound we had previously heard from the band during their time on the X Factor and it cements their place within the music industry as the band they always wanted to be, however, we do miss those cheesy dance moves.

Walk Away:

Walk Away is the edgiest track by far, detailing a failed romance, the beat of this track builds and falls to showcase the smooth and faultless vocals of the band.

The track has a great likability and is a great crowd-pleaser during live shows and seems to set them apart from the other countless boybands on the market.

Shoreline:

Shoreline is a bouncy, upbeat track, which makes you want to dance along to the infectious beat.

The track gets off to a slow start but builts into a song, which you can’t help but keep playing on repeat.

The song showcases the vocals of each member and the addition of Connor’s rap gives the song a great dynamic and summery feel.

Never Too Late:

Never Too Late is the slowest song on the EP and shows a different side to the normally energetic lads that we’ve grown to love. However, it’s a great ending song for the EP and leaves you wanting to hear more from the boys.

Kingsland Road’s Dirty Dancer EP is available NOW on iTunes and Amazon!

Hollywood Ending didn’t let us down!

Hollywood Ending impressed a sold out crowd at their gig at the O2 Academy3 in Birmingham on Sunday night, much to the delight of their dedicated fans and Room94 who made a surprise visit after their support slot in the room next door!

The foursome from various locations in both the UK and USA came to Birmingham as part of their tour across the UK on ‘The Anywhere Tour!’

The group, consisting of Chris, Tyler, Danny and Cameron (Left to Right) made sure to keep the energetic crowd entertained and wanting more with a range of songs from their EP: ‘Anywhere’, including ‘Good Time Girl’ and ‘Not Another Song About Love’.

The impressive set also contained a number of hilarious sections where the band and the crowd laughed along with one another – like when the lads spoke to ‘god’ who was watching the show from above to hear the boys perform their ‘Grocery Store Rap’.

Although the group entertained and impressed with their relentless energy and catchy tunes, attendees were stood waiting for an hour for the first support act to arrive – though it is speculated that another support act skipped out on the show.

The group, more popularly known for supporting McBusted during their gigantic tour across the UK, sold out the venue with a range of older and newer fans who shared appreciation over the talent of the group and the electric atmosphere showed how ecstatic they were to see the boys live!

Hollywood Ending started their magnificent set with one of their first singles ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ and rounded it off with their newest single ‘Freak Like Me’!

We would definitely recommend going to see these hilarious and incredibly talented group as they did not let us down! – They have the talent and an impressive setlist to make it far!

Brumotions gives their performance 5/5 Microphones!

You can also order their brand new EP ‘Anywhere’, which is available NOW on iTunes!

Canary Swing Just Wanna Dance With Somebody!

After touring around the country with FutureProof, Canary Swing ended the tour with a BANG at the London Islington Academy on June 1st, alongside artists such as Tich, Rewind, Kingsland Road and many more!

Canary Swing, made up of Ben Crook (Bass), Sam Blake (Drums), Cory Gaffney (Guitar) and George Crump (Vocals & Guitar) entertained the audience with an array of pop/rock originals, each with a summery and feel good sound which left us humming along to the tunes hours after.

The group finished their set with crowd favourite ‘Second Star to the Right’, which gained an electric reception and is also the band’s latest single which can currently be bought through ITunes!

They also left the audience dancing around to Whitney Houston’s ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’ which was an unusual but incredible cover choice for the young, pop/rock band.

Canary Swing had great audience interaction as the lads entertained the relentless crowd – who were looking forward to the artists placed later on the bill – introducing each member as sexy, which gained large cheers from an array of dedicated fans, some of which had travelled far to see their favourites!

Overall we enjoyed Canary Swing’s performance – although this band had previously gone unnoticed by our Brumoters, we were slightly unsure at first and took a little while to get into the group, but we instantly began to like the boys who grew on us throughout their set and therefore we would like to find out more about this band!

Canary Swing’s EP ‘The Flight’ is out NOW!

Introducing Hollywood Ending…

With so many new artists appearing on the music scene, we have once again completed a search both far and wide! (though luckily this one was closer to home…) and we want to introduce you all to the amazing band that is… Hollywood Ending!

Although we – here at Brumotions – had listened to these guys nearly two years ago. We finally gained the chance to see them live at this years OMG Live event in Birmingham (alongside Union J and Lawson).

Consisting of Tyler, Cameron, Dan and Chris (the last of which is related to the incredible James Bourne from Busted), the band have appeared on many tours across the US and Canada.

But don’t you guys worry!

The lads are staying in the UK for a while, to not only support McBusted on their tour from May 11th until the end, but you can also catch them on their very own, headlining tour in June!

Hollywood Ending are a young group of lads who love to have fun on stage and their relentless energy is contagious and will leave you dancing and singing along!

With an incredible arsenal of songs and amazing musical talent, these boys are definitely one’s to look out for and we recommend that you take advantage and see them on their headlining UK tour in June!

You can also order their brand new EP ‘Anywhere’, which is available NOW on iTunes!
