Flare Voyant is a funk-rock quartet based in England.
Drawing on their multicultural roots Flare Voyant deliver music which is a melting pot of different contexts and rhythms which they, like alchemists, turn in to 24ct gold.
The songs have a jazz influenced angularity, which darts through the ears, interlaced by soul grooves giving a flowing underlay to the sharply cut chords and the longer the audience listens the more the sense of the progressive-psychedelia that holds the mind in its grip becomes evident.
From their latest release their eponymous five track EP – the penultimate – Empty Soul.
The England based dream-rock duo Lost Horizons release their début LP Ojalá tomorrow.
A fifteen track album of fragile compositions, which like a spiders spinning silk, encases the listener in delicate threads, that transfix.
With numerous guest players joining individual tracks this is an album that offers a variety of texturing and is best played when there is time to fully appreciate the quietly flowing layers of the songs.
I Saw The Days Go By, featuring Marissa Nadler on vocals, is the ninth track.
The latest single to be released Citizen is a decent introduction to an outfit who deliver a sound that is able to unify audiences with different musical tastes including those who may initially contemplate jazz as ‘not their thing’.
The swaggering jazz is tempered by funky hip-dips delivered in an easy to engage tempo and as the track develops so the listeners discover themselves becoming more fully engaged.

The Romania / England based metal trio HateviruS are finalising details of the release of their début LP Hateful Mind.
Sprung from a narrative of disappointment about the unnecessary divisions and expressions of hate prevalent across much of the world HateviruS deliver a fury of dark metal appealing for a fight-back against messages of exclusion and intolerance.
The latest track to be revealed from the album – ArchiteKt oF HatE, available on bandcamp as a stand-alone single, contemplates that it is easy to be sucked in to the wall of hate and gain a sense of tribal identity by joining in with sneering derision and resultingly loosing ones own moral compass.
