“Love Affair” by Runabay is our tasty feature of the week. We’ve been playing whatever this band want to send us on the live show (big fans), so thrilled to see so many TUNES available for free over on their Soundcloud page – this is just one of them.
Runabay are at the forefront of fresh, new music in Northern Ireland, a sound which has undeniably been shaped by the beautiful coastline which surrounds the Glens of Antrim and is felt through the swooping melodies and poignant lyrics. The band produce a mature sound that leaves the listener hanging on the intricate guitar riffs, mellow three part harmonies and haunting cello. Hailing from the Glens of Antrim, Belfast and Peterborough, ‘Runabay’ is a newly formed six piece band which has been functioning since February 2014. Their style has elements of folk, indie and melodic pop.
Starting her musical journey at the tender age of five, Millie has a rich background in classical, big band jazz and contemporary music ranging from punk to soul and back again having grown up with music loving parents and learning clarinet, saxophone, voice and ukulele. Having had various musical projects, most notably Second Sense and one failed recording deal, Millie launched her solo career in 2013, taking her acoustic sound around the UK, building her loyal fan-base and releasing her first EP “Demon”. 2015 saw release of EP “Obsession Transgression”.
“Mystery Man” (live at Seahorse Sound Studios) by Marchan Noelle is our free music feature this Friday!
Marchan Noelle debut album The Witching Hour (Acoustic) released in October of 2014, came a lot of love for the bluesy acoustic rock track 5, “Mystery Man”. Most requested at live shows, Mystery Man was chosen to be featured in the Women of Substance Radio & Podcast, as well as named a Top 20 Indie Song the month of February 2015 on WOS.com. Most recently, a live acoustic version of the song earned Marchan Noelle a spot as a finalist and one of 6 runners up in the first international Recording Festival, out of more than 150 entries from all over the globe.

“Welcome to the Circus” by Skittish is our free feature as this week! This band are also currently running in our Top 10 of April 2016, so if you like this, head there give them a vote.
Skittish calls Minnesota home, and through all the national tours, SXSW successes, CMJ charting albums, and nation-wide exposure, there has been one permanent member of Skittish: Jeff Noller. Minnesota born and bred, and sprung from the same hometown as Garrison Keillor, Noller crafts songs that are at times folky, rough, weird, and bitingly sarcastic. All with literary flair and more hooks than a tackle box. He has written and recorded all Skittish albums in a hand-built lean-to of a studio in St Paul, Minnesota.
HVMNS is Melancholic, Dramatic Indie Pop. The band is the brainchild of producer Guus Hoevenaars with Moa Drugge on vocals. Guus wrote the music with a view to incorporated large drums, large sounds, drama and melancholy. To be played on a big stage, a Church of Indie pop.
