Luke Friend – Hole in My Heart

After appearing on The X Factor in 2013, supporting The Vamps on tour and working on new material, Luke Friend is FINALLY back with his new single Hole in My Heart, which will be released in the UK on Sunday 29th March and can be pre-ordered NOW!

The track has elements of a nursery rhyme feel with its simplistic tune, however the raspy vocals and trademark tone of Luke’s voice provides a dynamic and exciting track with pure emotion which flows perfectly from start to finish.

The video shows Luke wondering the streets after his love interest and shots of him performing the track with his guitar.

Hole in My Heart is the perfect track to debut Luke’s sound and will no doubt be successful and is our Brumotions pick of the week.

Friend also embarks on a six-date tour on April 18 in Totnes, ending in London on the 23rd.

Check out his debut track below and let us know what you think!

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!

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!
