Me And My Friends

Me And My Friends: infusing styles from around the world from West Africa to the Carribean

Me And My Friends, Brad Paisley, Daniel Steinbock, Society Of The Silver Cross, The Yada Yada Yadas and Vic Allen

ME AND MY FRIENDS
YOU READ MY MIND
Split Shift Records

Shakers at the ready: the latest single from this eclectic outfit is a carnival of sounds. Infusing styles from around the world from West Africa to the Carribean; the sensual draw of the cello and graceful vocals are enticing and addictive. This song will warm anyone’s cockles this winter. DC


BRAD PAISLEY
BUCKED OFF
Arista Nashville

The golden boy of country returns a guitar driven country track filled with a lush arrangement and standout lyrics. Paisley’s one of the most talented artists around and this release showcases his talents to the max. Bucked Off will be on heavy rotation for some time. LK


DANIEL STEINBOCK
OUT OF BLUE
Self-release

There’s a sense of peace and spirituality about this laid-back number which makes perfect sense when you discover that it was written while Daniel Steinbock was travelling in the Himalayas, visiting Buddhist temples. The backing vocals of the Rainbow Girls only enhance the good vibes. DH


THE YADA YADA YADAS
HUMAN EMOTION
Silent Kid Records

The Yada Yada Yadas return with a barnstorming, anthemic new single, guaranteed to gain them a whole host of new fans. It has a rather old school Busted vibe and it’s a real standout from a band well and truly on the rise. It has compelling lyrics and a thumping bass beat that has hit written all over it. LK


SOCIETY OF THE SILVER CROSS
WHEN YOU’RE GONE
Self-release

Layers of instrumentation ebb and flow to mesmerizing effect on this debut song from the Seattle-based band. Joe Reineke’s recurrent vocals become part of the ensemble as they emerge from within the swell on a cyclical basis. We’re intrigued to hear more in 2019. DH


VIC ALLEN
KEEPING ME UP
GingerDog

Vic Allen is an exciting new UK country talent and, with the release of this stunning folk-infused single, she breaks new ground and puts herself on the map as the next big thing. Gorgeous guitar riffs and country lyrics overlayed with Vic’s powerful lyrics should make this an instant fan favourite. LK


Words: Laura Klonowski, Duncan Haskell, Dave Chrzanowski
