Straight out of Brooklyn, New York, meet The Leeway. Fronted by Portugal-born musician, Pedro Barquinha, the group takes us on a picturesque musical ride with the new video for “If Only.” Featuring Pedro on vocals and piano, he takes the spotlight to perform solo for the group’s first installment of “The Bunker Sessions.” Filmed at Bunker Studio in Brooklyn, Barquinha takes the performance to a whole new level, adding an intimate and intricate touch on the piece. His lustful vocals speak volumes in the very touching version of the song. With inspirations ranging from Simon and Garfunkel to Punch Brothers to Sufjan Stevens, Barquinha helps create a beautiful blend of folk-infused rock, that tends to offer up instruments from banjo to mandolin, guitar and beyond.
The Leeway’s self-titled debut is out now. Watch “If Only” HERE.
The Unravelling is a heavy-hitting industrial group that hails from Calgary, Canada. Channeling bands such as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Tool and Nine Inch Nails, the group are ready to release their new single, “Revolt.” Made up of the infectious duo of lead vocalist Steve Moore and instrumentalist Gustavo De Beauville, the two have garnered critical acclaim within the music community.
A major setback, notably Moore’s struggle with a long term illness, lead to De Beauville honing his musical skills, helping to create the bed of music that is displayed on their new material. “Revolt” is laced with intricate instrumentation, that is heavy in tone, yet very accessible and alluring. Moore says of the lyrical content of the track, ““The lyrics to “Revolt” convey a rejection of the false and a need for inner change. This is an inner revolt that we are talking about.” Moore’s vocals are silky and smooth, yet rough around the edges, giving the group a deeper, more intimate sound. With the addition of De Beauville’s sonically driven musical production, what we hear is a sound that is unique and enticing.
