The Franklin Electric - After All

First heard on Jeff Robson's radio show "Tell The Band To Go Home", this song captured us instantly. A killer song.

"I guess I'm movin' forward down the coast to California
Where the folks like the waters not that cold
I guess there's nothin' for us
Since this world keeps movin' forward
And everyone's a little more likе you
When all that I've been through
And it holds as it holds you, I've been thеre
When all that I've been through
When you come to know the weakness of your heart"

The Jenkins Twins - Scarlett

Roy Orbison goes country! Perfect harmonies, excellent steel guitar, wonderful melody, great storytelling - what's not to like?

Glide Magazine about The Jenkins Twins:

"The Jenkins Twins (aka Trevor and Trenton Jenkins) have worked for years to craft a sound that seats them squarely on the cutting edge of modern country, pioneering a sort of cosmic Americana that nods to contemporary indie like The War on Drugs and The Killers without turning their nose up to golden-age pioneers like Springsteen and Roy Orbison."

Anna Leone - Once

Vulnerable, intense, utterly beautiful.

Anna Leone about "Once":

“The narrative loop comes from the idea of being stuck in your ways, going through the same patterns, but then choosing to break out of that and do things differently”.

“Towards the end I reconcile with the past, symbolised by the little girl. I choose to embrace what once was in order to move forward. It was incredible getting to shoot the video in that beautiful environment. The weather was really unpredictable – we went through almost all four seasons in one day.”
