Lyves – Shelter

Lyves - Shelter

Lyves – Shelter

Lyves is the project of North London based singer / songwriter / producer Francesca Bergami; a young artist of Italian and Australian heritage, who grew up in Portugal, before moving to London to study Psychology.

Following on from last year’s well-received ‘Visions’ is the atmospheric ‘Shelter’. The track is so emotive and powerful that it should be listened to in the pouring rain. If you were in doubt of the talent of Bergami’s vocals, then don’t be any longer, as ‘Shelter’ is a stroke of soulful genius.

Lyves will release her debut EP in the Spring, which will be accompanied by her first ever headline show in London.

Be Forest – Colours

Be Forest

Be Forest

Be Forest are a band from Pescaro, Italy. Originally starting as a trio, Be Forest consists of guitarist Nicola Lampredi, Erica Terenzi on drums and vocals, and Costanza Delle Rose on bass and vocals.

The band released their debut album ‘Cold’ in 2011 and instantly created an energetic and new musical stir, namely the ‘Pescaro-scene’.

As the band describe; “Pesaro is not a city for young people, there are less and less venues to play at, especially during the winter. Perhaps this lack is exactly what motivates kids to embrace music so passionately”.

Fast forward 2 years, add fourth member Lorenzo Badioli on electronic duties and listen to the track ‘Colours’. The track takes you through a hypnotic ethereal journey with a deep and steady beat, and tremolo guitar riffs.

‘Colours’ has been taken from Be Forest’s more uplifting sophomore album, ‘Earthbeat’, which will be released on 4 February 2014 on WE WERE NEVER BEiNG BORING. The album can be pre-ordered here.
