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!

Here at Brumotions we love to hear from you, let us know if you agree  or if there are any other artists you think we should be featuring.

12 Days of Brumotions: Ben Haenow – ‘Something I Need’

On the 3rd day of Christmas, Brumotions gave to you…

A Ben Haenow single review

Ben-Haenow

This weekend saw the final of X Factor 2014, a series which has seen highs, lows, 8 boys standing in a row, oh and Stevi Ritchie.

X Factor season 11 has been hotly contested from the outset and climaxed to a competitive final between Ben ‘Sexy Rock God’ Haenow and Fleur ‘She’s got it all’ East!

Like the rest of the British nation, us Brumoters were left on the edge of our seats and we just couldn’t call the outcome.

After an array of stellar performances, Ben was crowned X Factor king, with his winner’s song – ‘Something I need’ which was originally penned by One Republic!

Something I need is a perfect track to showcase the raspy, yet soulful tone of Ben’s voice, which we loved from his initial audition.
Compared to the original, Ben’s version is just that little bit more upbeat and is one of those tracks you find yourself singing in the shower or after having one too many drinks at Christmas.

The Question is, will it achieve Christmas Number One, or will Ben get pushed from the top spot by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ newest collaboration Uptown Funk.

The single is available to DOWNLOAD NOW!

Syco will be donating 100% of it’s profits from the single to ‘Together for short lives’ – So get your copy now!

Vote for your favourite member of Stereo Kicks!

This year has been a pretty eventful one! And even more so with Series 11 of The X Factor!

Stereo Kicks

And how could we not mention the AMAZING new 8 piece boyband: STEREO KICKS, consisting of (Above: Left to Right) Barclay, Jake, Chris, Casey, James, Tom, Reece and last, but not least Charlie.

The large boyband have divided opinions from the outset, after they were put together by Simon and the other judges.

The eight lads suffered an unsuccessful BootCamp experience as solo singers, before joining the growing list of groups that the show have formed including One Direction and Little Mix.

TONIGHT’S show saw Stereo Kicks saved by the public after a shock Elimination (On the Saturday night) with their rendition of Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) by The Backstreet Boys.

Unlucky for Jack Walton though as he was given the boot after getting the least public votes.

This got us Brumoters talking… WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE MEMBER OF STEREO KICKS? Another question which has divided opinion between us all … Casey or Tom, Jake or Chris, the list goes on YOU decide!

BREAKING NEWS: G.R.L’S Simone Battle dies aged 25?

G.R.L singer Simone Battle was found dead at the age of 25 in her West Hollywood home.

The news was confirmed in a statement from RCA Records, Reign Deer Entertainment, Robin Antin and Kemosabe Records on Saturday.

The statement read: “We are deeply saddened by the tragic news of the loss of Simone Battle of G.R.L.

“Simone was an exceptional young talent and human being and we are all devastated to learn of her passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones at this time.”

The news was first reported by the producer Derek Butler, who shared a picture of the star, writing: “I’m still in shock and in disbelief to have confirmed the death of my childhood friend @SimoneBattle,”

Battle first rose to fame when she starred on the US X Factor in 2011 as one of the girls in Simon Cowell’s category.

But she rose to fame as a member of the five-member piece G.R.L, a second generation of the Pussycat Dolls, put together by the original creator Robin Antin.

g.r.l

The group, which is made up of Lauren Bennett, Emmalyn Estrada, Natasha Slayton, Paula van Oppen and Battle were on the verge of becoming household names.

Their single Wild Wild Love with Pitbull reached number six in the UK charts and their newest track, Ugly Heart was released in the UK just this week.

The cause of death is currently unknown and still under investigation.

Union J – Tonight (We Live Forever)

UJ

British foursome Union J are back with their newest single ‘Tonight (We Live Forever)’, which is set to feature on their second studio album and is already reaching great success after entering the iTunes Top 100 Chart through pre-order sales alone!

Union J

Union J, who are more popularly known for their time on the ninth series of The X Factor – consists of JJ Hamblett, Josh Cuthbert, George Shelley and Jaymi Hensley (Left to Right), who will be releasing their newest track on August 17th.

Tonight (We Live Forever) is an optimistic and bubbly track, which has the makings of a single worthy of a Number 1 chart position!

This uptempo track is a perfect summer anthem, which we know you will be blasting for a while.

The lads have said: “The track sums up what Union J are about it terms of our sound and it also reflects who we are together – a group of friends having the time of our lives.” – Which is pretty easy to see when watching the incredible music video.

union j 2

Although Union J’s newest track is completely different to the single’s released from their debut album, we expect the lads to be receiving the same amount of success!

Tonight (We Live Forever) has already raced through the charts before it’s official release, so we have no doubt that this track will soon be bouncing into the UK charts!

Union J are currently planning a 2015 UK tour, so make sure to keep up to date with us, here at Brumotions – and we’ll bring you the details ASAP!

Tonight (We Live Forever) is available for pre-order now!

Kingsland Road are Dirty Dancing into our hearts!

Kingsland Road impressed their dedicated fans at their SOLD OUT show at the O2 Academy in Birmingham last night with a jam packed, energetic performance!

The East London formed group came to Birmingham as part of their debut tour across the UK.

KingslandRoadBirmingham.jpgThe group consisting of Matt, Connor, Josh, Jay and Thompson entertained both the old and new K-Landers with a range of songs, including the one’s that are set to feature on their EP, which will be released August 10th!

Four support acts were included during the gig, acoustic performers Jess Havens and Ellie Rose’s vocals wowed the sold out crowd during their own twenty minute sets!

Then Canary Swing took to the stage, bringing an incredible amount of energy and talent with them that left the crowd wanting more, before rapper Jessica Alice took to the stage with an equal and amazing amount of stage presence to those before her.

Then came the moment everyone had been waiting for, Kingsland Road ran onto the stage and performed ‘Walk Away’, a track set to appear on their EP, which their highly dedicated fans had already learnt the lyrics to and proceeded to shout them back to the ecstatic lads.

The boys incredible set featured tracks for both the old and new fans, including a small, hilarious performance of ‘My Dog’ for the older fans and a cover of Ellie Goulding’s ‘Burn’, which was posted to their YouTube channel in February.

The group, more popularly known for appearing on the tenth series of The X Factor, had the packed venue singing and dancing along throughout their entire performance, ensuring that everyone was thoroughly entertained!

Kingsland Road rounded off their incredible performance with their debut single ‘Dirty Dancer’, which is another track to feature on the groups debut EP!

We definitely recommend going to see Kingsland Road live as they have the talent (both singing and dancing) and an impressive setlist, which is without a doubt, going to take them far. We have no doubts, that – like they did last night – the group will keep you thoroughly entertained and leave you wanting more!

Brumotions gives their performance 5/5 Microphones!

You can pre-order their brand new, self-titled EP, which will be available from August 10th on iTunes!

Cher Lloyd – ‘Sirens’

cher lloyd

After having a three year break away from the UK, Cher Lloyd is back and better than ever with her newest track: ‘Sirens’

Lloyd showcases a new musical direction, a more mature sound and amazing vocal talent on her newest track, which is set to feature on her second album ‘Sorry I’m Late’, which will be available only next week!

Lloyd, who became popular after finishing in fourth place on Series 7 of The X Factor UK, signed to Syco Records shortly after the final of the competition – has spent three years extending her career across the pond and now she’s back home and planning on conquering the UK charts.

And Sirens is just the track to help Lloyd achieve her goal!

Not only is Lloyd’s newest track extremely catchy, but the young star’s fantastic vocals and the track’s amazing power-ballad melody will have you playing the track on repeat for a while.

And if the lyrics don’t already have your eyes watering from the emotion, then the music video will surely do that!

Especially as Lloyd has revealed that the music video for the track was heavily influenced by a childhood event in which her father was arrested when she was only five years old!

The lyrics perfectly reveal how music Lloyd has grown and improved as an artist!

And it’s great to finally see the young star moving away from Swagger Jagger and adding her name to tracks that people can relate to.

We, Brumoters have no doubt that this track will be jumping into the charts fairly soon!

Cher Lloyd is an incredible artist who has only grown over time, so we can’t wait to see what the young talent comes up with next and we hope that she has a number of amazing announcements for her incredible UK fanbase soon!

Sirens is available NOW!
