Gossling Announces First U.S. Tour; Includes CMJ Music Marathon & Culture Collide Festival

 
"The singer-songwriter is a musical chameleon, who can churn hook-filled songs that sound like Lana Del Rey spent a lot of time listening to Coldplay…it's piano ballads with haunting melodies that will stick in your head for days." – TIME

“both dramatic and danceable” – New York Magazine

“Whatever pause this Australian's childlike voice gives you is almost immediately erased by the sophistication of what unfurls next. She's part Lykke Li, part Feist, and not an iota less interesting than either.”— Esquire

“A traditional pop sensibility structures elements of wandering, atmospheric electronica, while crescendos of rich instrumentation give the collection a classical touch. And then there’s Croome’s singular voice: Utterly sweet, but with the thick complexity of honey, rather than a childlike or cheeky bubblegum smack” – MTV World

“Melbourne’s Gossling is an act on the rise… Croome’s stunning vocals are placed on full display, backed perfectly with a rich, full musical arrangement which reveals a band at the top of their game” –
Indie Shuffle

Melbourne’s Gossling (aka Helen Croome) is set to make her North American debut with the release of Harvest Of Gold on September 23 (available HERE via Nettwerk Records). Croome’s voice has an extraordinary timbre and it’s this distinction that makes her instantly recognizable. Check out Gossling’s cover of “Riptide” by country-mate and friend, Vance Joy.

In support of the release, Croome will embark on her first proper tour of the states. Known for her enchanting live presence, dates will include a special show at Culture Collide in San Francisco and Los Angeles, before heading east for CMJ Music Marathon (dates below).

Scars On 45 Premiere Video For "Crazy For You"; Top 20 At Triple A; Fall Tour Announced

British alt rock/pop band Scars On 45 have premiered their new video for single “Crazy For You” with Yahoo Music. Director DJay Brawner (Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran, The Used, Gym Class Heroes) who previously worked with the band on their 2011 video for “Give Me Something,” takes the viewer on an endearingly quirky (and even slightly sci-fi leaning) journey of early romance. The lead single from the band’s forthcoming sophomore album and Nettwerk debut Safety In Numbers (October 7, 2014), “Crazy For You” is quickly climbing the Triple A Top 30 Chart, landing at #18 this week.

Of the video, vocalist/guitar player Danny Bemrose says, “Although the song is hugely personal to us, it's also pretty self-explanatory and universally relatable. I think we've all secretly longed for someone at some point...some of us more than others. We wanted a video that kept the general theme of the lyrics but that was also a bit different and weird...I think we definitely got that!”

Nylon Premieres Madi Diaz's Video For "Straight Up" (Yes, That "Straight Up")

In true #tbt fashion, Nylon has premiered a new video of Madi Diaz covering one of the all time great pop songs, Paula Abdul's "Straight Up."  Says Nylon of Madi's interpretation, "She's slowed it down, stripped it of the electronic backbone, and drenched the song in a twangy melody that's much better suited for swaying alone in your bedroom than turning up at #daclub. If you've seen Diaz perform the cover during one of her live shows, then we don't have to remind you that this is a track that practically radiates a quiet power from the stage. And luckily, the same holds true for the singer's new video." See the full post here

Madi will release her Nettwerk debut, Phantom, on September 30 and will celebrate with the launch of her fall tour at Brooklyn's Rough Trade with X Ambassadors and Jamie N Commons. All tour dates are here
