M.A.D – ‘Shotgun’

With the boyband phenomenon still sweeping the country, there are many young, next generation boybands appearing, wishing to steal the hearts of the teenage population.

Here at Brumotions, we are always on the look out for new music to tell all of you about so you can feast your ears on it, which helped us discover M.A.D, who you can also catch appearing in this weeks Brumotions Playlist of the Week!

M.A.D. for it:  Band members Dan, Michael and Ben.

M.A.D, a trio made up of Dan Lewis from South Wales, Michael Sutthakorn from Northern Ireland and Ben ‘AB’ Pryer from London (Left to Right) – are back with their newest single ‘Shotgun’ after achieving incredible success in the Top 40 chart with their debut single ‘Toyboy’ and their second single ‘Fame & TV’, which were both released and achieved ONLINE!

Shotgun is bubblegum pop at its finest!

The track is likeable with a memorable and upbeat tune, which will leave a smile on your face and is perfect for a younger audience.

However, we can’t help but feel that the song is slightly repetitive and bland in comparison to other songs gracing the charts at the moment. We also notice their newest tune bares a close resemblance to ‘Angel with a Shotgun’ by The Cab.

With that being said, the band have boyish good looks, which combined with their inoffensive lyrics and energetic video with love declarations, leave many girls wishing they could ride shotgun with the band.

M.A.D have already amassed a large online following and are a group to watch out for this year! We are sure they will continue to grow as a band and produce a more mature sound that we are sure everyone will love (including us)!

Shotgun is out NOW! And can be purchased on ITunes!

Capital Exposed The Vamps

400 lucky Vampette’s attended the Capital Exposed event featuring The Vamps in Birmingham at South and City College yesterday afternoon and were not disappointed.

The group, based from various locations across the UK – performed at the Secret Location to raise money for ‘Help A Capital Child’.

The quartet consisting of Tristan, James, Connor and Birmingham’s own Brad (Left to Right) captivated their dedicated fans who managed to get one of the 300 tickets available online or one of the 100 tickets won through competitions.

Although the group’s set was impressive and the crowd were entertained with the live recorded advertisements, the set was short and only three songs were played, including: ‘Wildheart’ and ‘Last Night’.

Throughout the event, fans were able to win some band merchandise, everyone received free tickets to Alton Towers and one lucky fan managed to meet the band backstage!

The band are soon embarking on their own UK tour, for which tickets go on sale on April 26th, we recommend seeing this group live, especially with a longer setlist – the lads have the talent and already have a large following to make it far!

Brumotions give their performance 3/5 Microphones!
