White Raven to release new album “Like A Wind O’er The Ocean”

  Review by Bobby Green When the voice is used as a musical instrument rather than just the vehicle for the story the journey  takes on new meanings. The art of singing is seldom noticed in modern culture with the production values of albums often lauded on ‘this sound’ or ‘that sound’ and even the great singers of today, and there are many, are almost all backed up multimillion dollar production.

  Review by Bobby Green If you’re looking for a track to take over your senses and flood your soul with eternal questions then plug into the Feuds new single ‘Nothing to happen Next’. I remember falling in love with ‘Stay Here’ when it came out, their sound is beautifully alternative in a way that Teenage Fanclub were. ‘Nothing to happen next’ gives a fuller arraignment to an already encompassing sound that delights me about Feuds music. The song is from their self titled EP which is out on the 16th of March with an EP launch on the...
