Travel Tips From The Bands

Groovin the Moo is all about the road trip. Jumping in the car, putting on some tunes and heading to a new place for some exploring and plenty of memory making moments.

But as you head to these places, it’s only natural that you’d want a heads up on what to do or see! So we enlisted the help of our GTM artists to give you guys top tips for each of the regions on the GTM tour.

First stop on the tour is Allday’s home town of Adelaide, and it’s bustling with fun activities to get around. He keeps his hottest tips a bit of a secret, so if you want to know what to do and where to go, just ask him! “I’m from Adelaide so DM me, I’ve got thousands of tips.”

Hayden James’ uncle owns a café in Maitland called ‘The Favourite Chair’ and he swears it’s the best coffee in town. “My uncle said anyone with a GTM booklet can have their coffees on the house” – pre-GTM fix anyone?

Heading to up North to the Townsville show? Both Allday and Violent Soho recommend pre-event chill out time on Magnetic Island.

The nations capital may be best known for Parliament House and the highly-anticipated visit to ‘Questacon’ during your school years, but Allday has a sweet spot for Sweet Bones Café. Stop in on your way to or from GTM for a treat!

Local WA boys Slumberjack also recommend that during your trip to GTM Bunbury, you swing past the Busselton jetty “Which is a little bit cliché but it’s still worth the effort”. Oh and if you’re road tripping between Perth and Bunbury, The Smith Street Band swear by a little pie shop mid-way along the trip. They didn’t give us a name, just that “It’s f*****g delicious”.

Our travel experts also have some hot tips on road-trip essentials. The Jungle Giants recommend all the classic ingredients to a good time “podcasts, banging playlists and lots of sweet snacks”, similarly Slumberjack recommend, “an AUX cord…Good music turns a hectic trip into beautiful car-aoke with mates”… ‘Africa’ anyone?

And while Amy Shark’s car doesn’t leave without Red Wine and her toothbrush, Allday only packs the essentials “I need to have sunscreen because I’m pale.” Take note people.

Catchya on the road!

When I Grow Up…

When you’re young, you always dream of what you’re going to be when you grow up… from a Ballerina to an Astronaut and everything in between. The artists on our line up are no different!

Before they hit the big time, they too had ambitions and dreams – some of them coming close to where they are today! We asked a few of them what they dreamed of becoming when they were a young’un… here are their answers!

 

Allday

“I wanted to be a basketball player who rapped on the side. Now I’m a rapper who plays basketball on the side so that’s okay.”

Amy Shark

“There were a few… Tennis player, Actress and FBI agent (I was obsessed with Scully and Mulder).”

Hayden James

“When I was a kid I wanted to be a Machinery Vibration Specialist, but in the end I didn’t get the marks so I had to be a musician.”

Slumberjack

“Morgan wanted to be a fireman and then aspired to be a stock broker. Fletcher wanted to be a robot scientist and later thought to be a chemical engineer. Look where we are now.”

Wil Wagner from The Smith Street Band

“Exactly what I am now except better looking and more successful!”

James Carter from Snakehips

“Spaceman.”

Sam Hales from The Jungle Giants

“There was a long time there where I wanted to be a jazz drummer. Studied up a lot and started playing in the young jazz band at the Conservatorium of Music in Brisbane.

It was an obsession for a good while and then a friend of mine at school wanted to start a band… That kind of ended the jazz train for me and put me on to writing.”

Michael Richards from Violent Soho

“I always wanted to be a rock star. I got pretty close by becoming a rock drummer which is definitely something I can learn to live with.”

The Smith Street Band Album Review

The Smith Street Band’s highly anticipated 4th studio album More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me is here. We dive into the rise and fall of a relationship as Wil picks up the pieces and moves on in this cathartic release! *Hint: It’s their best yet.

More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me starts off with a bang. “Forrest” immediately sets a ferocious, driving pace, opening up the album with little room to breathe until “Spent the morning, cleaning my room” clears the air, then dives head first into hit single “Birthdays”. Fan favourite anthem “Death to the Lads” follows, delivering three back to back slamming tracks that absorb you into Wil’s wild, passionate, and poetic world.

The album showcases a reformed Wil. He’s still brutally honest, touching on some hard-hitting topics like mental health in “25”, “It Kills Me To Be Alive” and “Suffer” but his delivery shows a brighter character after coming to terms with emotional grief – he’s made it to the other side. Looking back on his experiences brings out some great examples of his hyperliteral, poetic wordsmith’ery, particularly mid-way through “Passiona”

“I’m absolutely, infinitely more scared of you than you are of me…oh god if it was only that easy to run from what I’ve achieved, I’ve let it define me… This is not work ethic it’s survival technique!”

There’s no shortage of unfiltered self-expression here. At times energetic, other times sobering (“Song For You”) It’s essentially what music is all about and all Smithies fans highly resonate with this universal connection of words, reflecting on the mundane, raw and beautiful moments life holds for us.

The 12-track showcase ends with “Laughing (Or Pretending To Laugh)” documenting where it all began and glimpses over love as its simplest ideal. It’s an endearing reminder that people come and go, but fragments of love remain and they are beautiful, simply in their own right.

More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me romanticises heartbreak with triumph. It’s universally relatable and the boys wear their heart on their sleeve as always, demonstrating deep layered tracks with amazing production values.

We can’t wait for The Smith Street Band to jump on the GTM 2017 tour bus!

Friday treats for your ears!

We’ve been absolutely spoilt this morning with both Amy Shark AND Allday dropping new singles and we couldn’t be more stoked!

After scoring the #2 spot in triple j’s Hottest 100 for her single ‘Adore’, Amy Shark has had all eyes on her waiting to see what she would release next. ‘Weekends’ premiered yesterday on triple j with Veronica and Lewis and the praise came streaming through!

We’re big fans of this track. It retains the lyrical style we’ve come to love from the Queenslander and is backed by electronic percussions. “’Weekends’ is an extremely personal song,” she says. “I actually wrote the guitar part about five years ago which sounds crazy, but I couldn’t think of any lyrics good enough to match the guitar so I let it go for so many years, until now!”

‘Weekends’ it’s the first taste of her upcoming EP Night Thinker which is due out on 21st April! Pre-order available now.

 

Allday delivered ‘In Motion (feat. Japanese Wallpaper)’, which is a softer side to Allday then we’ve seen as of late and it’s definitely working for him. When we first heard rumours of the two Melbourne musicians collaborating, we were intrigued as to what it would sound like, but ‘In Motion’ is a beauty. Allday’s distinctive vocals backed in by Japanese Wallpaper’s ethereal electronic production just works, and we REALLY hope there’s more to come from these two. People are frothing over the collab.

Allday has also just announced his new album Speeding which will, like Amy Shark, be released on 21st April! Pre-order available now.

 

Both tunes have been added to our Spotify playlist – listen below!

Milky Chance ‘Blossom’ Review

Did someone say new Milky Chance? Blossom drops today and we’re here to give you our thoughts on the German duo’s sophomore outing!

It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard from Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch.

Two years on the road, away from friends and new additions to the family, including Dausch bringing a daughter into the world, has all helped define who Milky Chance are in their 2017 release. The overall vibe of Blossom is a refinement what you’ve come to expect with heaps of feel good, catchy pieces from the pair out of Kassel.

Rehbein dedicates the album and title track “Blossom” to his daughter. The recurring motif of growth and maturation can be heard all throughout the album, particularly when the first track finally fades in, it blooms with a sweeping sample of their staple electronic infused indie folk, giving us that memorable sound we all know and adore.

If you don’t already feel like you’re riding a giant cloud of good vibes, “Ego” will get you bouncing, and better yet “Firebird” will have you literally swaying through the sky with jovial string arrangements and dense, determined lyrics.

“Doing Good” takes a slightly more serious turn. The band plays off the notion of feeling less than good and protecting your emotions under the guise that you’re feeling good or fine. It’s an introspective piece, driving home feelings of potential isolation, not being grounded while touring and trying to find a balance in life.

There are a number of new elements and worldly instruments present in the album, including conga drums, Spanish guitars and backing voices chanting through “Clouds”. The carefully arranged and distinctly European sound is ever so present throughout Blossom.

Rehbein strips these elements back with an intimate ballad in “Stay” leaving his raspy vocals and acoustic guitar to duel, with similarly fantastic results in the beautiful key stroker, “Piano Song”.

The lovely Izzy Bizu jumps in for a feature mid-album, flipping the formula with an almost poppy electronic jam “Bad Things” and of course their staple “Cocoon” completes the circle of where Milky Chance have come from with tighter, refined sounds.

Milky Chance have grown up in the three years since 2014’s Sadnecessary. You get older, find love, have children. Life happens. Blossom tries new ideas without forgetting what made them so great in the first place and is met with resounding success.

 

You’re going to absolutely love the new album! Blossom is a crowd pleaser that’ll have GTM fans chanting from beginning to end.

Blossom is available now on Spotify, so check it out!

Get acquainted with Graffin the Moo!

Every year at Groovin the Moo, we engage artists in the local communities to get involved with sprucing up our fence lines in an initiative we like to call ‘Graffin the Moo’.

Graffin the Moo is all about supporting local street artists who live in the regions we visit each year, giving them the opportunity to engage with our artwork, line-up and audience by offering them space to paint and create.

Working with both emerging and established artists, they support each other with their work and even take it upon themselves to mentor one another, or even help each other finish their piece. Graffiti breaks down barriers between young people and provides a medium for like-minded individuals to connect and create. Writing on caves and walls (and now festival fence lines!) is one of the old practices of self-expression by humankind and we’re so proud to work with these artists to do just that!

For the first time GTM will be collaborating with Ironlak to deliver premium spray paint to each participating street artist nationally. To assist with delivering the perfect balance of health and performance our paint mates have created ‘Sugar’, which is a mixture of hybrid water and alcohol based formulation. It is a healthier alternative for the environment and artist alike. We are stoked to be covering our fence lines in the stuff!

Which artists will be spraying the fence lines in your region you ask? Here they are!

WAYVILLE

Ryan Petik aka Zedr is a South Australian aerosol artist who has been fooling around with spray paint since he was 12 years old. He has since developed a unique style and various techniques which define him as an artist.

Mount Barker High was developed to engage young people from South Australia’s Adelaide Hills who are either at risk of disengaging from school or who are already disengaged. The college offers the chance to complete their education using adult learning principles in a flexible learning environment.

MAITLAND

Hyve Mynd are a Newcastle based group of artists that create both passive and interactive installations. You may have seen their street art inspired murals featured at festivals and on the streets of Newcastle and Sydney. 

TOWNSVILLE

The Youth Network NQ is a not-for-profit organisation based in Townsville that is an advocate for young people and youth services providers. They also run a range of engagement activities around the community to connect with young people.

BENDIGO

Hiphopportunities was founded by experienced Bendigo youth workers as an alternative way of engaging with young people in their communities. Under the guidance of mentor Jara Lewis, they’ll be showcasing their graffiti style and adding colour to their community

CANBERRA

Commit No Nuisance is an interchangeable collection of drop out creatives and artists of ill repute. Every now and again they dedicate a little time to brightening the surfaces of Canberra and run a series of live art battles at the local dive bar ‘La De Da’.

BUNBURY

Local street artist Dee Mosca works with Stirling Street Art Centre students to bring the scrim fence to life! As well as tutoring workshops at SSAC, she practices her own art and design work in her spare time.

Josh Raven enjoys working with the highly detailed style of hyperrealism portraits as well as creating large scale murals using a range of media. He strives to create pieces that have the ability to evoke powerful emotions in both himself and those who come to experience his work.

 

So when you’re at GTM, rather than just walking past the fence lines, why not stop and take a minute to appreciate the art and the work that our artists put into it! PLUS, they make a GREAT selfie backdrop 😉

 

FUN FACT:

One of our favourite memories was In 2012 when the boys from Hiphopportunities did a little tribute piece to Public Enemy and were asked by Chuck D to get up on stage and hold up the piece of fence line whilst the group performed around them.

 

Thanks to Sam Kim for featuring in the video!

It’s been a heafty Summer for CC:DISCO! thus far, winding down 2016 with a handful of sold out parties and festival slots, her momentum only continues with her recent East Coast tour and the icing on her disco-fuelled cake with Groovin the Moo.

Frequenting venues including: World Bar, Chinese Laundry, Kings Cross Hotel, Pacha Sydney and gathering a slew of festival slots including This That, Mountain Sounds, Groovin the Moo 2016 and THE PLOT (where they killed it on the 2150 stage!)

Luen

Young Sydney creative and now FBI Radio and triple j radio presenter Luen Jacobs is proof that hard work and dedication pays off. She’s worked her way up to become an integral figure in the Sydney music scene with no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Her early work consisted of band management, touring, throwing some killer parties and releasing mixtapes through her own project ‘Hand Games Music’.

A regular supporter of the local music scene, DJ’ing tunes weekly, she’s cultivated a brand synonymous with new underground Australian music. She’s landed festival slots from Splendour in the Grass and Falls Festival, to supports for Little Dragon and Sky Ferreira.

Methyl Ethel ‘Everything is Forgotten’ Review

Methyl Ethel’s brand spanker ‘Everything Is Forgotten’ dropped this morning and it’s everything you’ve come to love from the Perth outfit, with a few unique twists along the way.

After being intro’d to the new album via singles “No. 28”, “Ubu” and “L’Heure des Sorcières” recently, it was becoming pretty clear that Everything is Forgotten was shaping up to be a more confident Methyl Ethel than ever.

Opening track “Drink Wine” cruises into your earwaves and builds into an upbeat, synth heavy and almost tropical introduction, celebrating what’s to come and easing you into the diverse soundscape of tones present throughout the album.

It then drifts into recent single “Ubu” which features tight vocals and is a dance-worthy addition to your reg playlist. If you haven’t already heard it, have fun trying to get lyrics “why’d you have to go and cut your hair” out of your head after the first play (guilty).

After setting a delicate pace with “No. 28”, Webb goes on to evoke an otherworldly sensation on “Femmes Maison/One Man House” with dreamy vocals. The album then hits a grungy territory with ‘L’Heure des Sorcières’ before it once again strips everything back during ‘Act Of Contrition’.

What follows is an eclectic combination of tracks that allow us to not only explore Webb’s vocals and his compelling writing but also gives us a chance to really embrace the smooth rollercoaster of sounds the band have delved into on the album – pop, indie, psychedelic, disco, the list goes on.

As we reach the end of the ride/the final track on the sophomore album, we’re introduced to a spacey synth-driven track that encompasses everything we’ve heard across the previous 10 tunes. “Schlager” ties the album all together nicely, like it’s the bow on top of a package, and what a package it is!

Everything is Forgotten is a vivid and compelling 11-track anthology of dream-pop with twists of grungy tones, all forming this driving journey that shows us just how refined Methyl Ethel have become since 2015’s ‘Oh Inhuman Spectacle’. We guess you could say we’re BIG fans of the boys and their new album.

Get your ears around the album now and add Methyl Ethel to you ‘must-see’ list at GTM 2017!

Introducing GTM’s Canberra Commoonity Program for 2017

At the heart of GTM’s festival philosophy is the desire to showcase and support communities and regions. GTM’s Community Program has been developing organically each year and we’re thrilled to announce what we’ve got in store for Canberra in 2017!

Graffin the Moo

GTM engages the skills of local street artists to help transform the black fence line scrim into creative masterpieces! For the first time GTM will be collaborating with Ironlak to deliver premium spray paint to each participating street artist nationally. Commit No Nuisance will be bringing some of Canberra’s most talented artists to put their spin on the GTM 2017 artwork onto our fence lines. The interchangeable collective is made up of highly regarded creatives and artists. They are known for brightening up the surfaces of Canberra and run a series of live art battles at local bar and restaurant La De Da.

GTM x Heaps Decent Future Musicians Workshops

Heaps Decent is a dynamic arts organisation who work with young people and emerging artists, providing mentorship, advice and support. These total legends have been collaborating with GTM for the last 5 years holding workshops at each festival. During the event, an artist from the line up is selected to conduct a workshop backstage with a group of upcoming producers, beat makers, lyricists and songwriters aged between 15-24 from each region. Keep an eye on our website – applications to be a part of these groups will open in the coming weeks.

Installation Project

A giant praying mantis will watch over the festival, lovingly constructed by local artists Kurt Laurenson and Dan Maginnity, AKA Atune and Byrd. The pair are talented creatives who are staples in the local art scene and have been showcasing their work around Canberra since the mid 90’s.

Powder Pen

The Powder Pen is where our patrons can get a quick hair and make up freshen up thanks to local beauty and hairdressing salons, for a small fee. We welcome Cindy Rue from Higgins, specialising in feather hair extension, who will be donating part proceeds to the Lupus Foundation.

Ticket Exchange

A number of tickets have been allocated to disadvantaged youth who are being supported by Oasis Youth Support Network. Oasis focus on providing encouragement in education, training and employment for disadvantaged youth, viewing these as the primary pathways out of homelessness.

HEAPS GAY

As per last year, the colourful party people of HEAPS GAY will fly the rainbow flag in support of the LGBTIQ+ youth living in regional and remote communities. Expect an intimate, glittery, spectacular dance tent with all your favourite party tracks being spun from the decks.

Chalkboard

UC Life! will host their annual acoustic space that sees local musicians create their own ‘set times’ by placing their names on a chalk board displayed outside a tent full of acoustic equipment. The space offers not only a quiet refuge from the excitement of the festival but also a chance to catch some great local talent.

Work Experience

Our work experience groups for Canberra include the University of Canberra and The Street University along with youth disability specialist schools Black Mountain School and The Woden School. All participants will gain experience in a range of areas including Artist Liaison, Publicity, Production and festival bump in and bump out.

Local Fundraisers

The UC Hockey Club will be managing the car park for a small donation to raise funds for their team.

 

We’re stoked to be working with these INCREDIBLE groups this year, so make sure you stop to say hello and have a chat when you see them at the festival, and don’t forget to grab a selfie with the giant praying mantis!

METHYL ETHEL SHARE NEW SINGLE ‘L’HEURE DES SORCIÈRES’

If you thought ‘Ubu’ was going to be hard to beat, let us introduce you to the Perth band’s new track ‘L’Heure des Sorcières’.

Methyl Ethel continue to prove themselves as a truly unique band with this psychedelic-pop jam. ‘L’Heure des Sorcières’ (which is French for “The Witches’ Hour’) shares a side of the band that is dark and fantastical, with frontman Jake Webb’s filtered vocals descending low into the mix to erupt soaring over a surging, foreboding arrangement.

The track makes us want to clear a dance floor and flail ourselves around with our eyes closed until the sun comes up, and if ya’ll feel the same (which you will after listening to it), it’s going to make for one hell of a set when the band hit the stage at GTM!

The band’s upcoming album ‘Everything Is Forgotten’ drops NEXT FRIDAY (March 3rd) and we’re so keen for it. So prepare yourself and get your froth levels on the rise by listening to ‘L’Heure des Sorcières’ right now:

PNAU JOINS THE GTM LINE UP!

If you thought we were done with surprises, think again! We’re STOKED to announce that we’ve added PNAU to the GTM 2017 line up!

The long and successful creative force of Nick Littlemore, Peter Mayes and Sam Littlemore returned to their PNAU roots in 2016, dropping their first single in over fours years “Chameleon” (#11 in triple j’s Hottest 100). Whatta TUUUUUNE. Check out the stunning video clip above.

The acclaimed electronic act, who previously delivered you tunes such as “Embrace,” “Baby” and “Solid Ground”, have been hard at work and the boys show no signs of slowing down this year, hinting at a new album. If “Chameleon” is anything to go by, we’re in for an absolute TREAT!

Get ready for PNAU to take you on a spiritual journey as they make their GTM debut in 2017!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY FROM THE SMITH STREET BAND!

It’s Valentine’s Day and what better gift to receive than one from The Smith Street Band!

If you’re a fan of Melbourne foursome, you may have received a cute Valentine’s Day Birthday card in the post containing this message:

“Hello!

Happy Birthday’s for February 14th!

Lots of love,

 The Smith Street Band”

Wondering what that was all about?

It was all alluding to today’s trio of surprises! The boys announced their new album More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me alongside a little gift in the form of lead single “Birthdays” and it’s accompanying video.

“Birthdays”, which is their follow up to previous single “Death To The Lads” (#21 on triple j’s Hottest 100), finds poetic front man Wil Wagner “being positive for once”.

“There’s no despair or hopelessness in this one, he’s wearing the positivity on his sleeve. It’s a song about love and growing up – a constant theme in Wil’s songwriting” says drummer Chris Cowburn (via triple j).

 It’s an empowering and joyful tune that follows Wil’s chance encounter with a stranger on a pier in Hobart. Cowburn says to “expect more of the same” from their signature heartfelt punk sound along with some new tweaks on their forthcoming album.

Accompanying the new tune is a quirky but charming music video that follows the adventures of a young girl and her robot best friend! It’s adorable and we love it. You should watch the full video above, STAT.

The Melbourne band’s fourth studio outing was recorded in California and will be released on April 7th under their own label, Pool House Records. It’s available for pre-order now.

You can catch The Smith Street lads belting out the sounds of their new album at GTM 2017!

MILKY CHANCE ARE BACK WITH NEW SONG “EGO”

After releasing their hit single “Cocoonin November last year (#12 in triple j’s Hottest 100) and “Doing Good” earlier this year, Milky Chance have today released “Ego”, another taste of their forthcoming album “Blossom”.

The latest offering from the German two-piece does not differ from their thoughtful and catchy lyrics, it’s a song about distance that is impossible to overcome. In classic Milky Chance form, the track is an earworm of the best kind.

Listen to the bouncy new single now:

Blossom will be released on March 17, 2017 (giving you enough time to learn the lyrics for Groovin the Moo!) and is available for pre-order now. However, if you’re like us and just can’t get enough of them, the duo have released an interactive website where you can delve into the making of Milky Chance, how they make music and what’s behind their new album. Check it out!

P.S. It’s Friday, so lets flashback to this clip of the duo performing Taylor Swifts “Shake It Off” for triple j’s Like A Version back in 2005. It’s still so good!


February 09

K.FLAY DROPS NEW SINGLE “BLACK WAVE”

With just over three months until genre defying hip-hop legend K.Flay hits Australian shores for GTM 2017, she’s unveiled a dark new track “Black Wave”.

K.Flay describes the origins of Black Wave as facing something immense and menacing and choosing not to cower, but to rise up.” It’s an up beat, fire-fuelled banger from the L.A. based artist.

Alongside her latest track, she’s announced her second full-length album Every Where is Some Where to be released on April 7th. In addition, she gives us an insight into the album’s title; in writing this album, I thought a lot about the places that shape us, and how, in turn, we shape those places in our minds.” You can read K.Flay’s full statement here.

Don’t miss K.Flay at Groovin the Moo 2017! Tickets on sale NOW!!

GET TO KNOW: LOYLE CARNER

Before GTM 2017 hits the road, it’s time to get to know Loyle Carner.

Benjamin Coyle-Larner, better known as Loyle Carner, is a 21-year-old British MC based out of South London. He calls having dyslexia and mispronouncing his surname, á la Loyle Carner a ‘happy accident’, but what’s no accident is the cut through effect this emerging emcee is having on the UK scene right now. FYI: Nas, Joey Badass and Tom Misch are just a few artists Carner has toured with and supported in his short time on the scene.

‘Old school but honest’ are his words to live by and this transcends into his sincere and raw breakthrough 2014 EP A Little Late. He was placed on numerous ‘Ones To Watch’ lists for 2016 and it’s not surprising, given his honest and poetic approach to lyricism.

“A lot of my favourite records are by artists such as Mos Def, who have shown that it’s OK to open up. To be honest, there was never really a moment where I wanted to write any other way.” Loyle Carner has defined himself through overcoming challenging circumstances and this resonates through all aspects of his music.

He’s no stranger to the rap game, stringing sentences on the fly since the tender age of 10. Growing up feeling misunderstood, to dealing with dyslexia and ADHD, Carner struggled to channel his hyperactive energy productively until he found a love for cooking, poetry and music.

“Being dyslexic, I struggled with writing critically, but I could always write creatively. With creative writing, you’re not judged as much on spelling or form or structure; any mistakes almost add to the poem. It was kind of my little place where I could get away and colour outside the lines.”

 Carner can definitely whip up a feast! It’s his outlet away from music, bringing him clarity, focus and occupying his mind. He’s even teamed up with GOMA, starting up a cooking school for kids with ADHD to provide the same kind of kinetic experience to others as it brings to him.

I think that’s what is important: not doing one thing until it’s done and then doing something else, I think that’s where some people fall short. I think it’s where I’ve fallen short before. Doing loads of things at the same time is how you keep things interesting and as soon as one thing gets a bit long, you leave it for a sec and go do something else, come back to it when it feels fresh again.”

Loyle Carner released his debut album Yesterday’s Gone at the beginning of 2017 and it highlights an honest perspective on “what it’s like to be 20 in London; the depressors, the positives, the negatives.” It is a work of melancholic beauty and each track sets a scene, taking you on a musical journey through a diverse range of genres beginning with gospel anthem “Isle of Arran” and immediately mellowing it out in the next track “Mean it in the Morning.” His creativity is incredibly refreshing and produces a relatable, slice of life through typical feelings we feel at some stages throughout our lives.

Loyle Carner is a MUST SEE at Groovin the Moo 2017!
