All We Are
I have been sitting with a computer glued to my face since about 6am (contrary to popular belief, I do have a life outside of my ancient vintage computer, barely). How do I choose to find solace from my day? Head straight home, devour a bowl of ice cream and... scour the internets (and spend more time with my computed screen) for more music. Tres Jealous?
I treasure those times when I have the luxury of carefully learning about, and listening to, BBC Introducing artists; I need to find that rare head-space where my adult ADD allows me to focus, take a deep breath and just... listen. Those who know my demeanor, may politely describe it as 'impatient' and 'picky'. When applied to music, it can be very hard for me to sit still through a list of suggested music, without my finger interrupting to the next.
With this said, every time I listen to artists supported by BBC Introducing, I find myself stagnant, leisurely paying attention to each and every musician suggested by the talent aficionados.
Liverpudlians, All We Are instantly struck me. Their melodic crooning just works. Guro Gikling, Richard O'Flynn and Luis Santos' vocals are high in pitch, yet soft and drawn out. When laid atop catchy synth pop beats, you have a sound that is both comforting and energetic; it just feels right. They didn't lie when they mentioned the Bee Gees as one of their influences...
They will be announcing a slue of exciting news later this month, so stay tuned.
Fun fact: Their music video for "Utmost Good" features a star-studded musical cast.
