Like an iron fist in a velvet glove, Findlay beckons you and then knocks you out with her highly charged ball of raw gritty energy, which has been racking up support from Radio 1’s Zane Lowe and Phil & Alice along with 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and Edith Bowman.

Their second album ‘Babes Never Die’ produced by acclaimed producer James Dring (Jamie T, Gorillaz) is out now and has a more high octane sound to it with undeniable classic songs.
Honeyblood - Ready For The Magic (2016)

Levante è oggi una delle voci e dei talenti più promettenti nel panorama del pop italiano d'autore. Il suo singolo d'esordio “Alfonso” la proietta ai vertici delle classifiche musicali italiane, dominando l’airplay radiofonico nell'estate 2013. Lontana dall'essere uno dei soliti fenomeni estivi che si estinguono nel giro di qualche mese, Levante conta ad oggi due album all'attivo che hanno conquistato il favore sia del pubblico che della critica.
Levante - Alfonso (2013)
Lemandorle sono un duo dance pop con sperimentazioni elettroniche. Leragazze è il loro singolo d'esordio, che ha fatto ballare tutta l'italia nell'estate 2016. Sound puliti e orecchiabili che si fissano in testa, ritornelli facili da imparare accostati a strofe con riferimenti originali e mai scontati fanno della musica de Lemandorle un prodotto dal grande potenziale mainstream pur conservando un tratto di originalità e unicità.
Lemandorle - Le Ragazze (2016)

I Treni All'alba - L'arte della guerra (2011)

Matthew S - Maneki Neko (2016)
Train To Roots - Faya (2010)
I Cyborgs si fanno chiamare 0 e 1, come i numeri del codice binario: n° 0 (chitarra elettrica e voce), n°1 tutto il resto (sinth, piano, batteria, percussioni). La loro missione è far ballare le persone,
The Cyborgs - Dancy (2011)
I'm Not a Blonde - The Contract (2015)
Landlord - Get By (2015)
PowerSolo is the most synched band in the Crunchy Tunes catalogue (alongside Junior Senior). Their take on rock’n’roll has just the right splash of danger to it to help promote anything from Coca-Cola to Volkswagen.
PowerSolo – Baby, You Ain’t Looking Right (2004)
Labelling Thee Attacks “a great little rock‘n’roll band” is both an understatement and right to the point. This is part vintage rock in the tradition of 60’s British Invasion, part something brand new.
Thee Attacks – Stab (2013)
D/troit – Soul Thing (2015)
Edgy and groovy rock duo firing it up with hammond organ, drums, screeching guitars and vintage synths. Snake & Jet’s groovy yet quirky catchiness has proved to make them attractive to advertising in particular.
Snake & Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band – Ten Cities Beyond (2007)
The Malpractice is part pre-grunge power chords, part fragile, atmospheric soundscapes. This is not a band for the upbeat and sunny adds, but their cinematic scope has proved well suited for TV-series and movies.
The Malpractice – Oh, the Irony (2011)
The Tremolo Beer Gut plays old school surf’n’western, a genre they thought up themselves. All songs are instrumentals, drawing on 50’s and 60’s surf as well as the great film music of Mancini, Barry and Morricone. Think Pulp Fiction meets James Bond – in mono.
The Tremolo Beer Gut – Clayton’s Hotrod (Live) (1999/2015)
ONBC (formerly known as Oliver North Boy Choir) is Nordic noir alternative pop with mesmerizing female vocals. As the band is made up of two beauties and two bearded beasts, they come across as a melancholy reincarnation of ABBA.
ONBC – Brothers (2015)
Remixing Beastie Boys and sound tracking world famous shows like Breaking Bad, multitalented Peder has an amazing line of merits. On his solo albums, he explores his Nordic roots, crating sparse, haunting and sometimes comforting sounds.
Peder – Shadows of My Mind (2016)
All girls three-piece band – and a bit quirky, yet catchy as hell. Especially the track ‘Apple Pie’ has an irresistible drive that has helped promote i.e. Volkswagen and Baresso.
Nelson Can – Apple Pie (2011)
Since releasing their debut album in 2006, One-Eyed Mule has released five albums within the folk/Americana genre. Applying great hooks and melodies, they have slowly broadened their sound pallet, boarding on indie pop.
