Cardiff musician MOGAN has shared their video for their second single ‘Hireth’, the single features on their EP Gutter, which released on the 24th of April 2020. The mix and mastering of ‘Hireth’ were done by Cardiff conductor Minas (Hana2k, Luke RV and Dead Method). So far, MOGAN has recieved support from Music Week, Reverbsand God Is In The TV Zine, and broadcasted on Walya’s Act Normal show for Noods Radio and Razorblade the Tape.
MOGAN has a love for exploring the underground music scene and supporting other artists linked to their sound. They have cited avant-garde acts like Bjork, Liars, Peaches, Dirty Beaches and Broadcast as highly influential to their artistry. The ‘Hireth’ video was filmed by Patrick Bethell, who assisted MOGAN in capturing the character’s internal struggle and mental state, and the implications of your internal battle clashing with what the external world expects from you.
MOGAN adds their thoughts“The video for Hireth explores the parallels between passion and aggression of the male form. I’d initially wanted to remain off-screen for the video, but Jesus had other ideas and sent floods to Wales meaning our actors couldn’t make it. Luckily Patrick Bethell is a good friend of mine so didn’t mind getting close and personal! Some might say it was my plan all along…”
We have big soppy hearts that love the idea of a secret Christmas wedding. TGC with their newly released ‘Secret Wedding’ via Illuminated City fit the bill with Mila’s soaring vocals. The track was released today and we were simply too excited to wait to share it.
TGC have been picked up by several noteworthy publications including Wonderland Magazine, Rolling Stone Magazine, Huffington Post, Clash Magazine and the list goes on. Within Reverbs we discovered their origins: “Marlow Bevan and Milla Sunde are the duo behind the music and formed TGC after meeting Sir Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts”. You can read the full feature here.
“Call me a fool, but I’m hopelessly in love with being in love. I will always be a Juliet.”Milla Sunde comments on her own emotional connection to the track. Being the nosey bloggers we are, we were immediately curious whether there was more to the song than a romantic title. However, dig as we could, there was no more mention of a secret wedding that we could find. Either way, the power ballad is sure to be a hit, carrying all romantics into the festive season.
Electro-pop sensation TGC (The Green Children) have released their new single ‘Symbiotic’ via Illuminated City on 17th July. With this track comes the colourful lyric video. Along with performing at Summerfest and recording with Universal Music Group, the duo contribute to several charity outreaches on a regular basis.
These contributions have varied from supporting the charity New Alternatives through a concert benefiting LGBT homeless youth to creating an animated video for a remix of Foster The People’s ‘Houdini’ for SOS Children’s Village.
The philanthropic duo took a step away from their usual projects for a break in sunny Spain. While on the trip, they found inspiration for the synthpop classic, ‘Symbiotic’, with a holiday romance spurring on the imagination.
TGC have delivered yet another hit in their latest single ‘Symbiotic’, premiered on tmrw Magazine on July 16, via Illuminated City.‘Symbiotic’ follows 2018’s hits ‘Rooms’ and ‘ECG’ as the release of their highly anticipated third album draws nearer.
Norwegian songstress, Milla Sunde, and British multi-instrumentalist and producer, Marlow Bevan, are the creative forces behind TGC, a vibrant musical outfit that have become well known for their infectious brand of atmospheric, dreamy electropop.
‘Symbiotic’ opens with a light synth tone and crisp percussion, drum flam rolling into Milla’s silky vocals. The instrumental progresses gradually, placing the listener in a spacious warm soundscape, while Milla breathes cool, confident life into the mix. The alluring vocals are complimented by wonderfully detailed production, concluding on a suitably tropical note with an infectious bongo rhythm section and bubbly steel drums. Chill Music previously raved about the track.
‘Symbiotic’ plays out like a summertime poolside daydream in the shade of a palm tree. Press play below and take a sonic vacation:
