Equador – Blood (Official Video)

Bo Bruce (singer) and Henry Binns (producer/musician/Zero 7) met whilst working on tracks for what would become Bo’s top ten debut album in 2013, and immediately hit off as a writing duo. In 2015 the pair holed up in the Zero 7 studio, writing and recording early versions of what would become the new album by Equador. The result is an album of extraordinary beauty, a sound that combines elements of 90’s down-tempo ambience coupled with the haunting sound of 60’s mellotron and wurlitzers. The album Bones of Man will be released in September on Pegdoll records. Find more on Facebook and  Twitter.

DYAN – Days Upon Days 
Days Upon Days shakes up the indie libido that never wears out on our playlist, sweltering guitar drips on a synth pop high. The track strips our naked soul down to pure euphoria, you surely just want to listen to it alternatively over and over again. Nothing is taken by chance here.  Formed in LA, Cincinnati and Winnipeg, Canada in 2015, DYAN is Alex, Samuel and Dan. A simple trio with a complex past. As music writers/producers for film and TV as well as players for other artists (Ray Lamontagne, Jim James), they wanted a project for their own. Songs on debut album “Looking for Knives” ultimately tell the story of how they got together- a failed marriage gave way to a successful friendship, and a new relationship formed with its own complications. Unique storytelling through collaboration and music, that’s what’s on our plate here. Dive also on facebook and twitter.
