“The Mario Baloetlli of art school rock” Johann Sebastian Punk teases his debut album with the release of ‘Confessions’

Sicily’s answer to Syd Barret; Johann Sebastian Punk is preparing for the debut of his debut album Phoney Music Entertainment with the release of ‘Confessions’ which is sure to take listeners on a sonic journey of sorts.

What is apparent is that Johann has adorned an embodiment of some of the greatest icons of the eclectic side of the music world, including names such as Bowie, Adam Ant & Syd Barrett – going beyond the boundaries of when music becomes art.

Incorporating the iconic storytelling aspects of songwriting modeled by the aforementioned influences. The song is more than just a five minute jingle, it’s a psychedelic journey that presents something new with each listen.

Whilst the previously mentioned influences give an overall picture as to what the listener might expect upon listening. The song features a diverse range of influences and sparks multiple ideas in its composition, the ambient yet haunting atmosphere of the song sets the overall mood for the song.

The song features intricate choral-like vocals which makes the composition sound grand, along with woodwind instruments that add a fantastical element to the piece.

The composition concludes with a crescendo, still maintaining that dream-like, fantastical quality to the piece, we are introduced with a static drum beat. It brings familiarity in the form of Radiohead’s more experimental tunes and even The Beatles during their psychedelic years.

What Confessions does well is paint a sonic picture, those who are looking for substance and something comparable to artwork can eagerly look forward to Johann’s debut album Phoney Music Entertainment, which releases on the 13th of October. However, not only is a second single ‘Tragedy’ due for release before then, but U.K fans can listen to the debut album digitally during the second week of September.

Guitar Muse ReleaseSinger-songwriter Helen Dooley, aka The Cheek of Her, is set to release the second single from upcoming album ‘Adult Angst Anonymous’ (AAA) on May 12th. A track about taking on her own musical independence after relying on a string of guitar players to play her songs, it’s an empowering and unique pop track.

A passionate songwriter with a truly individual sound, vocal and sensibility, The Cheek of Her comes across like Lily Allen but with a darker cut to her lyrics.
It’s an approach that is starting to garner plenty of interest, with previous single ‘Write Me A Letter’ being featured on Radio 2, as well as positive reviews for previous work from the likes of Female First and music-news.com.
Due on May 30th, ‘Adult Angst Anonymous’ is set to be the culmination of her hard work and passion – her first full length album after a number of EPs, chock full of quirky songs written from the heart.
‘Guitar Muse’ will be available online from May 12th, followed by the ‘AAA’ LP May 30th.
