No Soap No Radio – ‘While You Were Gone’

No Soap No Radio offers a considerable and kaleidoscopic catalogue of great songs and dynamic, accessible music, boasting great rhythmic command and heart-stopping refrains. Their latest release, While You Were Gone, is a compelling album demonstrating everything that makes No Soap No Radio distinctive and memorable.

Built on the songs of guitarist/vocalist Mark Wilson, No Soap No Radio’s sound spans musical genres – from classic rock and pop to the complex jazz-influence of Steely Dan’s fusion or Etta James’ blues – whilst firmly asserting its own stamp.  Combining grace, substance and edge, with spacious melodies and subtle arrangements, the songs are both immediate and complex.  The lyrics are cerebral, wry and dry, with movingly poetic, sometimes dramatic, visual metaphors firmly rooted in vignettes of the everyday – situations, journeys, satire and affection.

Wilson’s heartfelt vocal delivery is intimate and passionate conversational and intense, always pushing the emotional depth of his lyrics.  Bassist Tim Appleby’s classical and jazz roots give the songs depth and direction, perfectly complemented by drummer Paul Taylor’s dynamic and sensitive approach, fusing jazz delicacy with driving rock and Latin punch. Lead guitarist Steve McCormick has the rare ability to move seamlessly from background to foreground, through subtle orchestration and chord work with syncopated rhythms to visceral and searing lead guitar solos. With a sonic palette spanning heavy metal and country, Steve moves fluidly between melodic, inventive finesse and brilliant, abrasive attack.

Based in the north of England, No Soap No Radio have built a loyal following over a number of years.

Their new album, While You Were Gone, will be released on June 17th and will be available to buy direct from the band’s website (www.nsnr.co.uk) and digital platforms.

New Music Radar – Soul Exchange

Mervilton Records recording artist The Soul Exchange is a band that has constructed a new alchemy from the rock solid foundation of the 70’s hard rock scene.

They have taken this influence into the new millennium and have created their own unique style of metal infused  modern guitar driven hard rock  with great attention to the melodies and grand vocal arrangements.

The Soul Exchange was founded in 2013 by guitarist Hans von Bell, drummer Benny White  and guitarist Thomas von Bell.

In 2014  the trio was joined by vocalist Erik Olofsson and Tobias Chevalier (vocals  keyboards etc). The band enjoyed success with their eponymous debut album “The Soul Exchange”  produced by the seasoned rock producer and studio engineer Mats “Limpan” Lindfors  released on January 20th  2015.

In 2016 the band underwent some personnel changes  with Daniel John joining founding members Hans & Thomas von Bell as new vocalist  and also bringing in Benny White on drums and Patrik “Patte” Ekel on bass  that makes up the present line up of The Soul Exchange.

With the new line up  the band has moved into a new direction  both musically and image wise with a different modern sound and stage image. The Soul Exchange now releases their 2nd full length album  produced by the renowned Swedish producer Magnus “Tank” Ljungqvist  on the Mervilton Records.

The 2nd album is a much darker and modern sounding effort  than the debut. The band claims that “this is a new era of The Soul Exchange” and that “Soul Exchange have found its sound on the 2nd release and this will be the formula going forward.

Modern hard rock with a great portion of metal influences  and most importantly  the vocal arrangements and melodies are having a major focus in The Soul Exchanges otherwise riff oriented music”.

The phrase “It is the sound of a new world being born and the louder sound of an old world being destroyed” has never been more relevant than for the new album by The Soul Exchange!

The new single ‘Life Eternal’ from the album ‘Bloodhound’ is out now.
