Oracle Sisters’ members hail from across Europe and the UK , the band are uninhibited in their influences, finding inspiration within the art, cinema, philosophy, and music of the world over; resulting in a sound that is both sonically sophisticated and warmly familiar.

Along the road, they’ve also played impromptu shows on the island of Hydra with friends from Fontaines D.C & The Murder Capital – capturing the troubadour spirit of the band. With well over three million streams across their modest catalogue, and an impressive schedule of live dates to be announced across the UK, Europe and US and a debut album on the way – Oracle Sisters are quickly becoming recognised as one of the most exciting and prolific outfits to emerge from the French music scene, and now set their sights further afield.

We love it when an artist reinvents themselves and we like to eagerly sit on the sidelines, watching which new way the producer may turn. Jerry Folk, with the launch of his side project, FENGSEL, has just done this. While his previous single, ‘Everything’, was in a closer style to his older work, ‘On My Way ft. Bearson’ (released today via Folkestad Recordings) takes a turn towards the indie-pop.
Jerry Folk tells fans about the creation of the video: “Bearson and I sat in the studio one day and tried to make something “medieval-sounding”. I put together a quick beat and Jakob (Bearson) freestyled some vocals over the track. We ended up making the whole song in an hour or so.”
Bearson is a longtime friend of Jerry Folk and has created official remixes for ZAYN and James Bay as well as working with Børns, Lemaitre and Anna Of The North. The two are both based in Oslo, but have created a single to spark the joy of travel in your heart. We hear news there’s an upcoming album in the works for Jerry Folk and we’re looking forward to seeing where this new path leads the artist. For now, if ‘On My Way’isn’t completely scratching that Jerry Folk itch, we recommend you also check out the music video for ‘Everything’here. However, we doubt you’ll need to. ‘On My Way’ is pretty spectacular by itself.
Stay For One More Night is a disco-inspired psych pop track, which straddles the line between low-slung chiller and energetic city slicker. Written and produced by Goodvibes Sound, the track features glistening vocal harmonies, a punchy bassline and Bossanova-inspired backing vocals. Think power walks in power suits and night time drives through city lights.
Alex from Goodvibes Sound said:
“Stay For One More Night deals with the feelings of isolation that often arise when you’re living in the city. Sometimes you find yourself being convinced to go and do stuff, just to stave off those feelings of loneliness, when you’d rather just rest and chill at home.”
“Producing the track during a lockdown was interesting.There were a lot of voice notes back and forth and some long, long Whatsapp calls. It was just nice to make something together during this weird time.”
Stay For One More Night comes hot on the heels of two singles released in 2020 – Sane Or Sinner and Beachside Living. Goodvibes Sound have a string of singles and videos lined up for early 2021, before releasing an album later in the year.
Beorma are Tom & Ferns, an indie pop/R&B duo based in Birmingham. Tom is Birmingham born & bred whilst Ferns is originally from Portugal. Both Tom & Ferns have been members of separate bands but they found musical love together during lockdown and began to collaborate sending ideas back and forth online, eventually coming up with the seven tracks that make up their debut EP ‘Virtual Emotionality’ which came out the end of January. Prior to the EP release they put out the singles ‘F U’ & ‘Right Behind You’ in 2020.
Now under the management of Indie Midlands Beorma are looking to push on with the release of new single ‘Woman’, a track that is purposely being released in time for International Women’s Day.
“Our music ranges from spoken word tracks resembling the early works of The Streets to the synth fuelled Indie Pop sounds of The 1975. Although our sound is quite often classed as Pop, we address very dark and morbid themes such as depression, self medication and stalking in our lyrics; often disguised and masked by the upbeat and vibey sounds of our tracks.” – Beorma
