Two years ago, Go Go Berlin proved themselves to critics with their highly-acclaimed debut album New Gold and has since returned to digital and physical retailers with the follow up, Electric Lives (Mermaid Records). The 12-track album has pleased fans and helped them increase their fan base, along with constant gigging from countless smaller stages in their native Denmark to more prestigious venues throughout the world in addition to the biggest Danish festivals such as Roskilde Festival, Spot Festival, Smukfest, Nibe Festival and Jelling Festival as well as at the inaugural Global Rock Summit in Los Angeles which led to int’l rock industry interest and various festival opportunities worldwide for the band. Despite their young age and wildness, Go Go Berlin possesses a professionalism that makes them deliver a fast-paced and intense live show – every time. The five-piece knows their musical craft, has mastered the style and attitude and consistently delivers at a level that reaches far beyond the stage.

Copenhagen’s Goblins is the meeting of a couple of like-minded eccentrics. Lars Iversen, one half of the band The Asteroids Galaxy Tour along with Jacob Bellens, the vocalist behind Murder and I Got You On Tape are the duo that created the project that functions like a hobby for the both of them. Their latest creation is the track “Heartbreak City,” a simple and compelling song about love lost. The single has been garnering support on Scandinavia’s P3 radio network as well as globally on Flux FM Germany, KNRK Portland, Radio Doble Nueve in Peru and many others. The tune is synth pop at it’s best, complete with a charming whistle and a crafty flute, reminiscent to Peter Bjorn and John’s 2006 smash “Young Folks.”

The Pretty Littles are a four-man Indie/Rock/Pop outfit from Melbourne, Australia. Their debut release, Mash, was recorded with Alex “Rudie” Markwell of The Delta Riggs and received comparisons to Jet and Eskimo Joe. In 2014 the quartet recorded their fourth release Gospel, with Neil “The” Grey which is too long for an EP, but too short to be labeled as an album. According to Rolling Stone Australia, “The Pretty Littles are all killer and no filler with their latest albumette Gospel. A release that sees the Melbourne four-piece take their next great leap forwards.” They earned high praise from their showcase at BIGSOUND in Brisbane last month and continue to entertain fans throughout Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne. One of the standout tracks from the release that has been gaining attention at radio is “Dangerman.” If you are in the Victoria area of Australia, The Pretty Littles are playing at The Evelyn Hotel on Friday October 23rd and then will start writing for their next album.
