Shoshy is a young female artist from East London. She has been producing music for a while now and graduated with a music degree last year. In the first lockdown, she wrote an album and was planning on gigging with that material but, of course, hasn’t been able to. It’s been difficult trying to promote her music during this time. She is inspired by 60s and 90s psych shoegaze, postrock, and trip-hop. Some influences include bands like the beach boys, Khruangbin, my bloody valentine and skinshape.

London based singer-songwriter Lisabel has released her debut album, A Work Of Art on May 5th. The album was recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered at Brother Sun Sister Moon Productions Studio by Nikola Kovačević. Thus far, she has been supported by the likes of Le Future Wave, comeherefloyd, Talk About Pop Music. Lisabel has received airplay from Pheonix FM’s Bob Simpson, resulting in close to 36 000 plays across streaming platforms. The songstress has played in renowned London music venues such as The Half Moon, Pizza Express Jazz Club (Soho and Chelsea), O2 Academy Islington to name a few.
Lisabel shares her thoughts on the album, “A Work of Art is a collection of songs that all share the theme of love from various points of view, often using metaphors to refer to a lover. A work of art is commonly portrayed as an object/creation of beauty, inside of which we can lose ourselves due to an overwhelming feeling that we can’t quite point out. In Lisabel’s mind, ‘A Work of Art’ is a person who she believes to be a symbol of joy, kindness, and love, an imperfect soul whose purity is unmistakable and undeniable. The album unfolds in a chronological order which follows personal events that have inspired Lisabel to write the songs. Starting from ‘Salamander Souls’ and ending with ‘Dear Moon’, each song represents a feeling and a moment in which Lisabel experienced a positive revelation about the beauty of life, people, love, and nature.
Lisabel takes you on a journey of romance, joy, and life in her debut. Her graceful vocals shine throughout the album, which is a well-integrated and wholesome work of art.
Machester-based music producer DEADLIFE has officially released his latest album, City of Eternal Rain via NRW Records. He has been supported by influential wave Youtube channel called NewRetroWave in recent months, which led to his stream count rising to over 3.2 million plays on major streaming platforms. His debut album Bionic Chrysalis was voted as Best Synthwave Album 2017 by publication MetalSucks, and also received commercial success on US Billboards’ Electronic Album sales top 20 chart, along with his 2019 album Singularity.
Growing up in the shabby Crewe area in the UK, DEADLIFE would spend a lot of time indoors playing video games. The music producer was a drummer in a band before pursuing his solo career in electronic music production. After several tours, he realized that he felt held back creatively. DEADLIFE always had a vivid imagination and a more sensitive demeanor. He would use these qualities to produce music of his own liking. The music producer is inspired by the emotional qualities of video game soundtracks with his music. He has also cited influences from artists like Disasterpeace, Justice, deadmau5, Sigur Ros, Refused and Deftones.
Speaking of his album DEADLIFE adds, “City of Eternal Rain is a concept album that is inspired by the direct contrast between dark and light. That no matter how bad things get, there is always hope. The record is, like many of them, created to feel like you’ve heard it before, but you don’t remember it, to instill nostalgia in your mind and remind you of a time your memory grasps at but can’t quite recall. I’ve realised in life it takes more bravery and courage to be who you are and bare all, rather than to hide it away, which we often do, which I did in my younger years. It’s time to be honest, to directly reflect that which I feel within what I write.”
