London-based Indie rockers Bromide announce new single ‘Magic Coins’

Depicted as the lovechild of Bob Mould, Grant Hart and Dinosaur Jr., London three-piece Bromide are making their mark in the modern alt-rock landscape in presenting their new 2-track single Magic Coins – a track that will pleasantly haunt you in the same way as when you first heard Sugar’s ‘If I Can’t Change Your Mind’ or even Lemonhead’s epic album ‘It’s a Shame About Ray’

Accompanied by ‘Always Now’  as its b-side, ‘Magic Coins’ is an unexpected rhythm track that is seemingly drum and bass-inspired, written collectively by all three band members.

Lead-vocalist and guitar Simon Berridge commented that “Magic Coins is a good example of how being in a band can take things off in directions you’d never expect. I’d been trawling Youtube one night and on my travels come across Susan Boyle’s gobsmacking debut performance on ‘X Factor’ and a thumping AC/DC gig from Oakland Coliseum, California in ’79. Both had made me think about the nature of performance and invisible energy release and so I put this into a new song I was writing “I wanna stand in their shoes. Tell me what it is I have to do.”  

This single follows the album ‘I Woke Up, released in the summer of 2018, and the ‘I Remember’ album previous to that. In that time, they have won over news fans including Gideon Coe at BBC 6 Music, who has called their music ‘Fantastic’ and says their latest single ‘Two Song Slot is ‘a mighty fine tune’, playing these tracks numerous times over several months.





A dose of French electro-swing with ‘Alors Je Danse’ – the latest dance track from No-Ce and her band

After a successful run at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Cecile Nordegg (No-Ce) and her band have taken their unique mélange of Edith Piaf-esque chanson and Frank Zappa musical stylings to yet another unexpected destination – dance,

Alors Je Danse is their first release from the forthcoming album and sees them adapting their sound to a more electronic genre, an adaptation that is flawless in its transition. The track is carried by Cécile’s rich vocals and flirts stylistically with the wave of electro-swing that combines the elements of jazz and electronic melodies – a combination that has the demanding effect of dance.

Previously a successful film and TV actor, Cécile is backed by a band of outstanding musicians who have already made names for themselves: JP Chiche on guitar and background vocals (previously having shared the stage with everyone from Aerosmith to Fats Domino) and Andreas Pirringer on sax, flute and clarinet and Walter Bass on piano – just to name a few.

Their previous release, Jazz Proclamation Vol. 1&2 was a collection of tracks which transcended language and genre and Alors Je Danse looks set to achieve similar cross-over success with fans of dance music.
