Cobi premieres highly anticipated new track "Prophet Story"

While singing the blues in smokey bars throughout Northern Minnesota, 12‐year‐old Cobi always had a vision of touring the world. He was eight years old when a family friend first taught him a few basic chords on the guitar. With money earned from mowing lawns, Cobi soon bought an electric guitar and began teaching himself to play his new instrument by ear, relaying heavily on his Godfather’s extensive eclectic music collection.

Cobi went on to team up with five other musicians in Boston to form the group Gentleman Hall, a synth heavy alternative rock band who would later sign with Island Def Jam Records. With local radio play and multiple TV syncs, the band performed at the Billboard Music Awards and were named "Best Breakout Boston Artist” at the MTV VMAs.

Cobi left Gentleman Hall in 2014 and moved to Los Angeles to follow his heart and desire to play his soulful style of rock and folk. In 2016 Cobi toured as a guest vocalist for the electronic act Above and Beyond performing at iconic venues including Royal Albert Music Hall, The Hollywood Bowl, the Sydney Opera House, the Greek Theater and more.

Cobi's debut single was released on May 6th 2016. As powerful of a song as they come, ‘Don’t You Cry For Me’ caught the ear of industry veteran Lyor Cohen who immediately signed Cobi to his new label 300 Entertainment (alongside Grammy nominated artists Fetty Wap and Highly Suspect).

The track features a seventies vibe with a piano and moog under Cobi’s soaring vocals complimented by his layered backing vocals. The track reached #1 on Spotify’s Most Viral Chart (World) and has surpassed 12 Million streams to date.

Cobi is currently on tour with his band, performing at venues and music festivals throughout the US and Canada. He’s set to tour alongside Boy & Bear October 2016.

I felt the original songs that I wrote years ago had the potential to be modified and improved, so I transformed the texture and melody, replacing death growling with throat singing, etc. The reissues represent the taste and status of this present moment of my life - my experiences, my emotions - bound with grassland."

Last Great Dreamers unveil brand new video 'Oblivion Kids'

Last Great Dreamers unveil the brand new video for Oblivion Kids, three minutes of sonic power-pop mayhem. The anthemic Oblivion Kids opens their new album Transmissions From Oblivion released on September 30th through the bands independent label Ray Records.

Last Great Dreamers wrote Oblivion Kids from the “perspective of a loner, someone who wants to be part of something with the need to belong. Their imagination is free but they’re restricted by social or emotional boundaries. The desire for that buzz that is just out of reach.” “For the video we came up with a rough storyboard & used some aspiring child actors & a wrestler, then taking inspiration from what was available to us & our own dark humour we just kind of let them loose with some guitars and various outfits & wigs and left the camera rolling. We think the end result captures the essence of youth & the general vibe of the song!”

Transmissions From Oblivion is the Last Great Dreamers first brand new album since they reformed and they’ve turned up the dials to deliver an album chock-full of trademark hook-laden anthems. Spirited, diverse and occasionally dark, it promises to be one of the most talked about albums of the year. To celebrate the release of Transmissions From Oblivion the Last Great Dreamers take their rocket fuelled power pop on the road for 12 headline dates, including London’s Nambucca on September 30th ,where they “will be playing quite a few tracks from the new album as well as old favourites & trying to pick a few songs from the last two albums that we haven’t played live that much over the last few tours”.

Transmissions From Oblivion is an energetic yet sensitive album that celebrates music and storytelling with14 finely crafted songs overflowing with rock’n’roll attitude, emotion and glamour. The recording of the album was an “incredibly organic and yet cathartic process”, working with producer Tony Harris the band have created an aural treat. With no calculated image or reliance on nostalgia Last Great Dreamers instead have honestly created an album that is full of romantic bravado and the perfect manifestation of their immutable wit, sadness, quiet anger and charm.

The opening power pop anthem and new single Oblivion Kids sets the tone as the flamboyant yet urgent album takes the listener through 14 heartfelt songs. Including the previous singles Glitterball Apocalypse, which documents the tragedies of rock n roll and the raucous Dope School, plus the best 2 minute pop/punk song the Buzzcocks never wrote The Way We Collide, before this quintessentially English album concludes with the punktastic clarion call Turn It Up. There’s something indefinable about Transmissions From Oblivion but very special that makes it irresistible & despite being under the radar, Last Great Dreamers are possibly one of the most essential British rock bands of recent times. This stunning new album has the potential to lift the band above cult status to a much wider audience!

Last Great Dreamers with their distinctly British take on power-pop are the antithesis of grunge and the best band you’ve probably never heard. They built a formidable live reputation in the mid 90’s with their shimmering glam style. Their debut album Retrosexual, a love letter to the early '70s glam scene, caught the attention of Kerrang! magazine, resulting in an awards nomination for 'best new band’ before tragedy and disillusionment forced the band to call it a day. In 2014 they staged a fabulous comeback releasing an album of rarities, the critically acclaimed ‘Crash Landing In Teenage Heaven’ and have since toured with Runaway’s singer Cherie Currie in 2015 & this year opened for bands such as the Darkness, Terrorvision, Hey Hello & Tigertailz and released 2 brand new singles ‘Dope School’, & 'Glitterball Apocalypse’ both achieving no.1 status on the TBFM radio network charts.

In Transmissions From Oblivion, Last Great Dreamers have created a truly honest & personal album: their first set of new songs since their resurrection is highly melodic & full of emotion; with power, sensitivity & poetry, its catchy hooks, light & shade & rock n roll attitude ‘kicks like a mule’ - a rare commodity in today’s world.

Following the release of new album Familia, Sophie Ellis-Bextor has announced she will release her new single Crystallise on October 28th, via EBGB’s/Red Essential. She has also announced a UK 2017 tour, tickets for which will go on sale this Friday at midday.

Familia, which was released last week charting at #12, is Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s sixth studio album and follows her #4 charting and silver certified album Wanderlust, which marked a critically acclaimed change in musical direction for Sophie. Following suit with her last record, Familia was also co-written, produced and arranged by acclaimed singer-songwriter and good friend Ed Harcourt and was recorded in London with a close-knit group of musician friends.

Discussing her new album as “the bolshier, more extrovert little sister to Wanderlust”, Familia was introduced by the Radio 2 A-List track "Come With Us," which is an instant disco-pop anthem. Second single "Crystallise" offers a different glimpse into Familia and is a romantic track that opens with a soft tempo before building into an impactful string-laden, emotive chorus. Sophie says:

“Everyone has the potential to fall in love and "Crystallise" is about how easy it is to realize it if you let yourself. The ability to love has been there since the day you were born.”

Familia features 11-tracks, which continue to showcase Sophie’s newfound lyrical and musical maturity, from the beautiful and emotive Unrequited to the synth-laded ballad Death Of Love and the alt-pop buoyant opener Wild Forever.

After a busy live circuit around Wanderlust with packed out festival performances and sold out headline tours, which garnered a host of rave live reviews, Sophie launched Familia with a one-off intimate London show at Bush Hall last week. She has now announced a UK tour in February and March 2017, kicking off in Norwich on February 16 and culminating at London’s Koko on March 1st.
