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!

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.

EXCLUSIVE: Behind The Scene’s of Leo ‘Golden Child’s’ new music video ‘All About You!’

If you’ve been stalking the Brumotions twitter recently, then you would’ve seen our announcement for today’s BEHIND THE SCENE’S article from LEO ‘GOLDEN CHILD’S’ newest music video ‘All About You!’

Our Brumoters spent July 13th in Birmingham City Centre with Leo himself and a number of his incredibly dedicated and lovely Birmingham Street Crew, who had shown up to watch the shoot and to help the talented musician in promoting to the great Brummie public!

The new track will be available to hear soon, alongside the amazing video, in which Leo tries to win over a potential love interest in a number of recognisable locations around the city as well as a scene with a random dog appearance (How cute!)… However, we can’t tell you much more, too many spoilers!

So make sure to keep an eye out for both the track and the video (we’ll bring you more details soon!)

But for now, why not watch our video featuring photos and video clips from the shoot, where we not only watched Leo act, but we also got a chance to check out his ‘impressive’ skateboarding skills, check out the video to see what we mean:

And also check out Leo’s track ‘Stay Positive’, which has been used within our Behind The Scenes video, below:

So are you excited to see the new video?! Let us know below!

Mike Dignam – ‘Hurt’

After completing an array of successful headline tours and a support slot with the incredible 5 Seconds of Summer (in both the UK and their home country Australia… If you couldn’t tell from those amazing accents).

Mike Dignam is back with his debut video and the lead single from his new EP ‘It was Written’ in the form of the incredible track: ‘Hurt’.

10374865_10152945534273265_435517952132156486_n

On his travels around the country, Mike has amassed an army of dedicated supporters, who have joined Mike during his musical journey from gigs in the park to large headline tours!

The song showcases Mike’s strong and hauntingly beautiful vocals and leaves you wanting to keep listening to find out more – meaning you want to listen to the track from start to finish.

The song is filled with emotion, especially with the repetition of ‘hurt’ during the chorus, which leaves you completely immersed within the lyrics.

The Video is a great addition to the track and works well with the song, showcasing Mike’s natural talent.

However, although we love the song, we can’t help but think that this tune is slightly too dark to join our current ‘summer anthem’ obsession.

Check out the video and Let us know what you think!

Mike is also embarking on a UK tour see the dates below and Pre-Order his EP – ‘It was Written’.
