Jesse Terry Back In The UK

CmCf6JGWkAE_qqvOne of our all-time favorite singer-songwriters on OurStage, Jesse Terry has been busy since last we checked in. First and foremost, he’s on tour right now in the UK and will hit some major markets before wrapping up in Scotland on July 17th. Then he’s back in the US, touring mostly northeast-midwest. But he’ll be back overseas again in the fall, this time including Ireland. And then, best we can tell, he will simply continue touring forever. Wow, click through below and look at all those dates. Obviously, we strongly recommend catching him when you can.

New Single From The Rimes – “Avalanche”

In the great tradition of fuzzed out riffage from the UK comes Birmingham’s The Rimes. Though officially out next month, you can get a preview of the quartet’s new single “Avalanche” (b/w the excellent “Need Your Love”), which describes, both lyrically and musically, the decidedly violent smashing together of two persons – commonly referred to as “love.”

Featured Artist: Unquiet Nights

There’s nothing like a little UK rock to get your blood pumping midweek. Hailing from Belfast, Ireland and extending their reach as far as London and Rome, Unquiet Nights have been gaining notoriety since their 2011 release, 21st Century Redemption Songs. Taking ’90s influenced rock and roll to the next level with radio friendly riffs and gritty vocals, it’s no surprise that they’ve seen exposure through radio play on BBC and G3 and provided the soundtrack for several television and Internet broadcasts, including ESPN.

If that weren’t enough, the band has also broken into the OurStage Top 40 for Indie Rock with their song, Someone’s Love On Drugs.” The charm of that single was enticement enough to check out the rest of the band’s catalog. 21st Century Redemption Songs may come in at only 35 minutes, but these guys make every second count. Where “Someone’s Love On Drugs” captures a softer side of the band, “We Were The Ones” charges ahead full force with unrestrained vigor, setting the tone for high energy, catchy tunes throughout, and making for an album that is simply bursting with ambition and potential.

Check out “Someone’s Love On Drugs” below.
