With a classical aesthetic, but a rock-ballad infused edge, Georg Roman is causing waves in the classical world with his potent and dramatic new single, ‘Forever’.
Georg’s musical roots are based within the operatic genre which is evident when listening to his music. He has performed at many charity events and concerts which he himself has founded, as well as performing at places such as the Bolshoi Academic, The New Opera and the Bonn Opera.
‘Forever’ is a hugely emotive track displaying the power of Georg’s baritone, alongside tension building string sections, all ignited with a little bit of rock. Although Georg looks up to the likes of Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo as his classical influences, he also notes Eric Clapton and Joe Cocker as artists who he draws from.
Whilst it might seem that Georg has been singing all his life, he originally wanted to be a sportsman, either a weightlifter or professional fighter, but quite clearly, singing is where he belongs.

The 80s may well have come and gone, but singer-songwriter, INJIN, is resurrecting the sounds of this amazing era with a distinctive rock-infused edge in his new music.
A musician from a young age, INJIN would rework the tracks of rock Gods such as Pink Floyd and Deep Purple, and this has given him the tools to create a unique brand of rock music, almost incomparable to anything else.
His latest track, ‘Tennessee’ is an intriguing hybrid of a track featuring pacific-esque wind instruments and a pulsating drum beat that takes listeners back to the epic-feeling power pop of the 80s. The wind instruments evoke a definite native American sound to the song, working unexpectedly, yet interestingly against a background of deep synths and electronic effects. As you can imagine from this, INJIN’s music is far from the ordinary, but you instantly know that there is a high level of craftsmanship and production that has gone into ‘Tennessee’.
Despite INJIN’s unique style, for frame of reference, there are hints of Simple Minds in his music, as well as 80s cult band, Frankie Goes To Hollywood.
INJIN’s tough childhood has influenced his song writing to form the personal album ‘Tennessee’ that escapes from the conveyor belt material being constantly churned out in today’s music industry. The rock ballad title track was released earlier this year with a stunning music video that sees INJIN wandering picturesque landscapes in search of the unknown – definitely worth a watch (and a listen).

Homesick Mick has been causing waves in the media recently after his foray into the world of social activism. After hearing of Sir Philip Green’s extortion of the former BHS employees, Mick took it upon himself to speak on behalf of the little guys by launching a social media campaign against the billionaire tycoon, which he labelled #PhilipFreeFriday.
The idea behind the campaign was to prevent people from shopping at Green’s stores during the black friday sales and to raise awareness of his deceitful actions. Nonetheless, having found success through this medium, Mick is now moving full throttle with his music and his latest release, ‘Prisoner To The Past’.
Taken from the EP Black Hole Friday, ‘Prisoner To The Past’ is an alternative festive jingle that uses some insightful lyricism and catchy hooks. It might not be about presents and playing in the snow, but it’s refreshing to hear something a little different from the conveyor belt material we hear every year.
The video for ‘Prisoner To The Past’ even features some very accurate lookalikes of ex-Beatles, Paul and John! Check it out here!
The supremely talented singer-songwriter, Corinna Jane, has a wealth of musical experience at her disposal which she has put to good use in her new single ‘Three Faces Of You’.
Her latest track is a masterful piece of pop-rock with Corinna’s intelligent and witty lyrics at the heart of the song. The addition of the violin provides a quirky nuance that isn’t often heard in this kind of music, whilst the guitar drives the track with full throttle once the chorus kicks in.
‘Three Faces Of You’ follows the fascinating story of Corinna’s relationship with someone who lived in their own fantasy world with various personalities residing in him. The feisty song is mirrored in Corinna and her band’s performance, which holds a strong resemblance to the powerhouses of Fleetwood Mac and No Doubt.
Having supported Leddra Chapman and been a guest vocalist/co-writer with German DJ Mark-Oh, it’s clear Corinna is ready to take the music industry by storm with her distinctive style and loveable personality.
Everything Under’s latest track, ‘Happy Matters’, exhibits more of the brooding electro-rock style that the band have made as their trademark.
The band’s individual sound draws influences from 80s synth pop, yet this is combined with a dark, grungy 90s edge.
In 1998, EU’s front man Mark J. Heidecke sadly lost his sister in a car accident. After years of grieving her loss, Heidecke enrolled at Ex’pression College for Digital Arts where he studied sound design, music theory and performance.
Using the techniques he had learnt, Heidecke developed his own unique sound but his father’s diagnosis with Parkinson’s disease meant he had to move back to Illinois. However after relocating, Mark found Grammy Award winning producer/sound engineer Jeff Lane and drummer Kevin T. Jones, who soon became part of Everything Under.
Along with the track comes the psychedelic video for ‘Happy Matters’ that is sure to send you on an electro-rock trip.
You may not have heard of Injin but his music is definitely something you should give some time to. The combination of machinated synths and natural woodwind instruments on his track, ‘Tennessee’, create an unusual, yet spellbinding sound.
Those who love 80s music should be sure to give it a listen. The vocals are ghostly in their resonating echo, yet enticing. Though for a more modern comparison, the synth lead is not a million miles away from early Future Islands records.
Get on over to Injin’s website should you want to find out a little more about this distinctive and talented musician.
From their upcoming album GAMESHOW, UK indie band Two Door Cinema Club release this new single ‘Bad Decisions’. It sees them upping the groove, becoming more in touch with the sound of their early work.
