Wychbury have released their debut single ‘Geordie’. The track is an explosive retelling of a traditional ballad which captures the imagination from the very first beat. Wychbury have been quietly making a name for themselves on the folk scene. They have performed at festivals across the country including multiple Glastonbury performances on the Greenpeace Stage in 2022 and in the Green Futures Field in 2023. They have shared the stage with artists including, John Frances Flynn, Rachael Newton (The Furrow Collective) and Rusty Shackle. With intricate finger-picking guitar by Che Bradley and captivating vocals by Rhiannon Kenny-McGrath, Wychbury perform mesmerising traditional and self-penned folk songs, steeped in epic, tragic and passionate storytelling. The duo grew up together in Stourbridge, West Midlands and despite being in their twenties, have now been playing together for over a decade. “’Geordie’ speaks of the inequalities between the richest and poorest in our society. It has been passed down the generations for hundreds of years. By mixing acoustic instrumentation with modern production, we aim to fuse the old with the new, redefining the song for the modern day,” say the duo. Listen below.

The Danish pop band AKACIA started their journey back in 2020 as a cover band, but quickly realized that they had a passion for writing their own music. In the beginning the group focused on perfecting their songs, while playing concerts around their hometown Odense. In 2022 they played at Posten and many other places in the city. The band has been through a lot of changes in both members and style, but has now found a solid foundation and a sound that they love. Their music is characterized by catchy melodies and relatable lyrics about the ups and downs of life. The production is filled with big synths and hard hitting drums, which defines the core of their sound. They released their debut single ‘Will It Break’ back in the fall of 2023. In 2024, AKACIA is ready with their second single, ‘NEVER’ and are going on their debut tour in the spring! ‘NEVER’ describes the complex yet so common feeling of never being enough. The feeling of doing everything to achieve that one thing, and then seeing someone else reaching the finish line without an inch of struggle. The theme of ‘NEVER’ has an all too familiar ring to most of us. The first seconds of the intro pulls you into a “clubby” vibe, like the feeling of going home alone from a night out lost in thought. In collaboration with producer Emil Mathiasen, the three friends leave you immersed in a whirlpool of emotions. Listen below.

Lofty harmonies and sweet synths juxtapose the lyrical uncoverings of the reality of living with spiralling mental health problems during a period of extreme social and physical isolation. alx frncs says: “I wrote ‘i can’t do anything right’ after coming out of a deep depression. Personal situations were beginning to change and it finally felt like I could process what had happened to me both physically and mentally during the second half of the pandemic. The song is an ode to my flatmates that kept me just above water, but also how I felt like a burden to everyone around me.” Listen below.
