Meet Electro Rock Jammers – Celebrity Traffic

Here I give you something unique and original from across the water. Meet Celebrity Traffic from Victoria, British Columbia.

Rock, funk, electro and fun! I’ve had a soft spot for them since I’ve heard their tracks Stone Crows and Serena. This band offers sound you hardly hear anywhere else. And that’s how I got hooked on their music. For their originality and creativity.

Three friends Sean (guitar/vocals/harmonica), Joel (bass/ keyboards/vocals) and Brandon (programming/drum machines/keyboards/vocals) started casually jamming and improvising together three years ago, realizing there was enough spark for creating something special and unique, that’s hard to match. Mixing electro with grunge and hard rock, the band says to be unpretentious about what they do when they make music.

One thing that’s important to them is wanting people to have fun! And that’s what Celebrity Traffic does really well their funky, casual appeal. There is an amazing contrast between the electro and guitar elements in each of their songs.

Their album We Bleed Blood contains 8 tracks and each of them is very different. You hear the diversity through the whole album which shows that these guys have talent to create something new and interesting each time.

You can dance, you can rock and you can have fun with the lyrics of the tracks. The album will keep you entertained in many ways.

The lyrics represent elements of life such as anger, joy, fear, sadness… all the feelings we all go through and can relate to. The key is being real and honest.

Their unusual and effective sound brings excitement and energy into the world of music and especially to people.

The guys are hoping to make it across the water and I wish them all the best for it to happen . It would be a great experience to see them jamming live over here in UK!

Take a look at some of their music and you can even download their track Stone Crows for free!

I recommend their album We Bleed Blood, especially the tracks Stone Crows, Serena, Busted Lips and Significant Other but I have to say that I also love the last track Wallflower for it’s fun lyrics! 😉

If you’re impressed, get the album! It’s worth it.

Portsmouth’s Best – The Chase

The Chase are a four piece band from Portsmouth that released their second album Slings and Arrows in January.

Michael (guitar, vocals), Luke (bass), Ralph (drums) and Ben (saxophone, backing vocals, keyboards) are taking the South Coast by storm with their energetic and feel good indie rock sound and gaining fans really fast through their live shows or social networks.

It’s not hard to share their music if you find the time to listen. You’ll be amazed and a bit annoyed you haven’t heard of them before.

Their new album is available on Itunes and it’s one of the best sounding albums I’ve recently purchased! Album that is such a great musical journey all the way through with its energy, catchiness and stunning guitar pieces.

If you want to add something fresh and exciting  into your music collection, then check out Slings and Arrows. The first track Tonight will leave you with no doubt The Chase means business. They know their sound and they know how to bring you the perfect melody.

Their music have been compared to The Jam, Stereophonics or White Stripes and I’d say that also the fans of Oasis or The Beatles will enjoy them a lot.

These passionate musicians have mastered the top tunes and I only foresee a great future ahead of them. I hope I can get some of you to check them out 😉

And here is another rocking track Touchpaper from the new album!

If you like it, grab the album! 🙂

Introducing RABA

I came across RABA at the fiN single launch party at the beginning of this month.

Their live performance was amazing and I became a huge fan of their great, catchy rock melodies and a strong soulful vocal from Scott Raba who adds the heart and soul into the songs.

Just listen to Home and you’ll know what I mean.

The pop rock band from Surrey has four members: Scott (vocals), Nick ( lead guitar), Jamie (drums) and James (bass).

Influenced by great artists like Bruce Springsteen, Manic Street Preachers and Kings of Leon, RABA adds their own rocky and heartwarming sound into the world of music.

They’ve recently launched their website rabamusic.com and released their EP with five brilliant tracks.

The EP starts with the fans favorite Home, which speaks to you with its meaningful lyrics and beautiful melody and it’s followed by a very catchy guitar track Daydreamer Kid, that gets you singing to it in no time.

One of my favorite songs that also shows Scott’s great ability of lyric writing is called But We Look The Same. 

If you like slow and heartbreaking songs like me, then For Real is just the one. Simply stunning.

The last track If You’re Mine has got stronger and powerful feel to it which shows, that RABA delivers music for everyone. Music that gets you sing along, lets you enjoy the wonderful guitar sound and speaks to your musical soul.

These guys have much more to offer in the future and I believe they will make it big.

They are planning to start gigging very soon and I recommend to go and check them out live. It’s worth it.

In a meantime, just have a look at their pages, have a listen to their EP, check out the videos and enjoy the great music!
