I feel like Leader have this way of putting out tracks that are bouncy and generally feel good, and I feel like, most recent single, ‘Open Skies’ follows suit. It’s a big track with a sense of ambition; sounding well produced and clean on record but also would take on a bigger life live too.
The track itself ‘is about always looking and searching for something more. No matter where we end up, how happy or sad, rich or poor, we’re always wondering about if things had been different…what could have been… what is still to come.’ This is reflected in the driving rhythm that carries you through the track, giving it more depth overall. ‘Open Skies’ showcases what Leader are about, and gives us a glimpse of what is to come from these boys, yet there is a familiarity to the track which gives us a sense of warmth. The accompanying video works really well with the track too, and it’s aesthetically really engaging.
I really like this track and can’t wait to see what direction Leader take it.

Sea Girls are very pleased to share details of their new single, All I Want To Hear You Say. It arrives on the cusp of a near sell out debut UK and Ireland headline tour throughout October.
With three EPs to their name, featuring the pneumatic, infectious punch of Too Much Fun, Eat Me Whole, What For, Call Me Out, and Heavenly War, all of those tracks have followed the trusty formula of being unrelenting guitar-fronted bangers that sound custom-made for the radio airwaves, and All I Want To Hear You Say takes that blueprint but pushes it further still. Confident, ambitious and soaring, it’s Sea Girls growing as a young band, and whilst they’ll be always be scrawling their story out on the road, they’re honing the studio process and pushing themselves to take everything to the next level.
Listen to All I Want To Hear You Say HERE

NECK DEEP cover ‘Torn’ for upcoming. ‘Songs That Saved My Life’ compilation – out Nov 9th on Hopeless Records.
Speaking of their version, frontman Ben Barlow says, “This song is a classic for a lot people; it’s actually one of my girlfriend’s favourite songs ever, so we’ve listened to it a lot. It clicked that we could cover it one day when we were on tour, eating somewhere and it came on the radio. We started singing along and quickly realised this would make an awesome cover, once we’d ND’d it.
We recorded the song with my brother Seb, and the video rolled round a little while later. Once again we teamed up with our buddies at OWIG and aimed to recreate the original video, but with an ND twist. We scrapped the love element and instead opted for more comedic value. Alongside that, we have a slight narrative where I’m constantly interrupted by the life that goes with being in a band, with me cutting a frustrated figure.
It also features some cameos from some of our closest friends in the ND unit! It was a lot of fun being able to cover such a well-known song. Shooting the video was a breeze and as always the OWIG team nailed it.”
