12 days of Brumotions: One’s to watch in 2015

On the 8th day of Christmas, Brumotions gave to you…

One’s to watch in 2015

We Brumoters LOVE to predict the future for music hits and today we’ll be focusing on what’s going to be hot in 2015!

From solo acts to bands, below are some artists that we believe that might just be lucky next year.

Ollie Marland

Ollie-Marland-Wallpaper-3

For years Ollie Marland has been on the Unsigned Scene. However, in 2014 he signed with Crown Talent and Media Group with the likes of Ellie Goulding and Jessie J in their arsenal.

Ollie is set to break hundreds of girls’ hearts, but will 2015 be his year? We think so!

Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas

OMG we’re dating a Jonas Brother… It’s sooooo hot

We Wish!

Those days are over though for youngest brother Nick Jonas, who is pursuing a much more mature and modern style of music and let’s just say it’s something special.

We can’t wait for the release of his solo album and to see if he will be bringing his music live to the UK in 2015.

Please Nick!

Kingsland Road

Kingsland Road

We have covered Kingsland Road many times throughout 2014 and we feel that 2015 will be their year to finally shine to the masses.

They are now a four piece – Booo! – and are set to release their brand, spanking new debut album with a tour across the UK AND the US  – Yayyyy!

We are looking forward to what’s coming next for these guys.

Lawson

Lawson

We pride ourselves on always being on the lookout for top quality musicians and when we heard Lawson four years ago, we knew they were on to something good.

2015 is set to see Lawson release a brand new album, which if their last album Chapman Square is anything to go by, we can’t wait, and especially as in the land of Lawson this means a tour.

Fifth Harmony

Fifth Harmony

After taking the US by storm with their powerful, pro-female image and a strikingly amazing UK debut on this year’s X Factor, we wouldn’t be surprised if Fifth Harmony rocket up the UK charts in 2015, rivalling Little Mix for the top spot on the girl band front.

Hollywood Ending

Hollywood Ending

Hollywood Ending are those Punk A$$ Kids that our Mama’s warned us about, they are infections, fun and that little bit naughty… but we LOVE them.

We definitely think they are some of the brightest young talents and are worth checking out as we are predicting big things to come from this four piece.

Stereo Kicks

Stereo Kicks

After leaving this year’s X Factor, we feel that Stereo Kicks have great potential on the Boyband front, an 8 piece hasn’t been successfully formed before and we are intrigued as to what is next to come from their original music in 2015.

Will they stay together or will the lads go back to being solo?

James Bay

James Bay

James Bay is an up and coming talent with a great voice and obvious promise to make it in the big leagues of the music industry.

In 2015, Bay is embarking on a UK tour and we personally can’t wait to hear what’s coming next.

Nathan Sykes

Nathan Sykes

After the disbanding of one of our favourite Boybands- The Wanted, earlier this year, which brought many tears from fans and us Brumoters alike, Nathan Sykes is set to make a comeback.

In 2015, the baby faced crooner, is set to release his debut solo material and its safe to say if its anything like his collaboration with Pop princess Ariana Grande, we are excited! Sykes will definitely be one of the most wanted in 2015.


So there you have it!

The Wanted will stay Gold Forever!

After an hour of singing, dancing, throwing water at their fans and leaving two of our Brumoter writers very emotional, The Wanted left the stage at Fusion Festival for what could have been the last time EVER!

This comes after the group announced an extended hiatus earlier this year (But remember, we also spoke of their ‘last ever performance’ previously in April after their Nottingham show during the ‘Word of Mouth’ Tour so don’t despair TWFanmily, they may have more!)

The group’s appearance sparked controversy even before the event, not only because this was to be their only UK festival appearance, but as it was announced 11 days before the show that Nathan Sykes would NOT be appearing due to solo music commitments!

Leaving fans devastated and the other four boys to go it alone, with the promise from Max George that ‘the proper Wanted’ would be on stage.

However, this didn’t dampen the spirits of the four piece who were determined to make us glad we came and they did not disappoint!

max

Max George, Jay McGuiness, Siva Kaneswaren and last, but not least Tom Parker – put on an electric show, bringing the fun and party atmosphere to the festival (like they’re well known for). Mixing oldies from their debut album, including ‘Lose My Mind’ and ‘All Time Low’ with newer crowd favourites like ‘We Own The Night’ and ‘Lightning’

The Wanted sure know how to put on a great performance as the four heartthrobs left tons of girls screaming and crying – though the lads were quick to comfort fans near the front of the stage to stop the sadness.

Tom even gave the ladies a cheeky flash of his rather perfectly toned abs (We know ladies, we know)!

Even though there were a few vocal hitches and lack of singing in certain songs (Looking at you Mr. McGuiness) – which we put down to lack of rehearsal. However, their vocals remained strong  and their incredible stage presence and bond within the group showed throughout their performance, captivating the audience and showing the lads are pop, at it’s finest!

Before the show, both our Brumoters and fans alike were worried about the lack of Nathan Sykes, however, this didn’t seem to be an issue as the other lads seemed to express their personalities more and interact with the crowd. However, the question on everybody’s lips: Has Nathan already moved on? Or was it simply a case of bad timing (as reported)?

siva

The Wanted’s performance at Fusion Festival showed why they were and will always be one of the biggest boybands of our time, who will sadly be missed (though we hope not for very long, start planning that comeback gentlemen!)

Brumotions give their performance 5/5 microphones! (We apologise Jay, we know you wanted less!)

BREAKING NEWS: The Wanted to perform at Fusion Festival without Nathan Sykes?

Are The Wanted scheduled to perform at Fusion Festival without Nathan Sykes?!

The wanted (1)

It’s been announced today that this is TRUE!

Only moments ago, Fusion Fest discussed this topic on there Facebook page, posting the following statement:

“Hi everyone – just to say The Wanted were booked as a four piece at Fusion Festival next weekend due to Nathan’s ongoing and longstanding recording commitments out of the UK that day. The band are really looking forward to seeing all their fans in Birmingham and are planning on putting on an amazing show!”

This comes as a surprise to most fans as the group’s appearance at the Festival was never called into question and there are only 11 days until the group’s performance.

Shortly after the announcement of Sykes not attending the festival, fellow bandmate Max George took to Twitter with a pretty sassy statement, tweeting: “Can’t wait for next weekend! The proper wanted turning up! Let’s have it! #FusionFestival

So what do you guys think?

Have you gotten your tickets for the event? What do you think about this announcement?

Richard Rawson ft Tom Parker – ‘Fireflies’

fireflies cover art

After the disbanding of N-Dubz and an eye opening life style change – Fazer aka Richard Rawson is back with his debut solo single – Fireflies, under his own name, producing the music he always wanted to make.

Rawson’s rap is insightful, personal and alongside the melodic piano undertones gives us a look into the stars past; the highs and the lows, whilst likening his journey to that of a firefly, which leaves you wanting to keep listening to find out more.

“I swear I’m like a firefly,
I require darkness in order to shine”

Fireflies has an extremely catchy and memorable chorus which is sang by ex- The Wanted hottie Tom Parker and is his first solo appearance after the band announced an extended hiatus earlier in the year.

“As I stare across the sky
I see nothing but a million fireflies
reminding me that I can make my light shine
it’s not over, over, over”

fireflies

Tom’s strong vocals bring something that little bit different and exciting to the song, especially as it’s not a collaboration we would have naturally expected, where Tom’s AD-Lib (Improvisation for those who aren’t musically tech-savvy) near the end of the track leaves the audience on a high.

The video is a great addition, showing the light and shade in the song compared to the feelings of the artist and is perfectly executed to portray the strong message of the song.

Fireflies showcases both artistes versatile, solo talents and is a great track that us Brumoters Love!

Check out the video below and let us know what you think!

You can also pre-order the track on Itunes.

Birmingham Fusion Fest continues to impress!

Just last month, we at Brumotions reported on the AMAZING line-up for this years Fusion Festival!

And earlier this morning another 7 incredible acts were announced!

Fusion Festival is based at Cofton Park in Long Bridge and promises to be bigger and better than last year – which we believe will be hard to match as it was an INCREDIBLE show!

However, we Brumoters are pretty estatic with the line-up announced so far!

Including, one of our favourite boy bands who will be performing at their ONLY festival show of the summer, THE WANTED!

And the lads who supported them on their last UK tour before their hiatus, THE VAMPS!

TheVamps
