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!

Nothing to Lose with Emblem3!

Emblem3 wowed at their gig at the O2 Academy2 in Birmingham last night, much to the delight of their dedicated fans.

The Washington based trio came to Birmingham as part of the UK leg of their #Bandlife tour!

The group, consisting of Keaton, Drew and Wesley (Left to Right) entertained the energetic crowd with a range of songs from their debut and only album thus far: Nothing to Lose, including 3000 Miles and Teenage Kings.

The impressive set also contained a short acoustic performance by the trio, which gained a great reception from the fans, who sang along with the group’s relaxed version of ‘Riptide’.

Although the group entertained and impressed with their relentless energy and catchy tunes, much confusion was raised as no ‘special guests’ made an appearance, even though they were announced.

Plus the audience were left to wait for nearly two hours, inside the venue before the band performed.

The group, popularly known for appearing on the Second series of the X-Factor USA and making it to the semi-finals, finishing in fourth place didn’t have a large audience to entertained as they aren’t well-known here in the UK, but their eager fans made up the atmosphere considerably as the lads took to the stage.

We would definitely recommend going to see them live as you have nothing to lose when seeing this group of talented boys – they have the talent and an impressive setlist to make it far!
