It's still freezing here in England with most of the country under a sheet of ice, so we are staying put, warming up and serving some excellent music. Today on the roster we have Secret Shine and Fafa Galoure.


Both are having a great response on the radio with some major stations picking up play.

Secret Shine
There Is Only Now 
Saint Marie Records 
15 December 2017


Secret Shine emerged from the late eighties/early nineties Shoegaze scene. Releases on the cult label Sarah Records followed, most notably the single Loveblind, earning the band an entry into the Indie top 20, and the album Untouched.

After a long lay-off in 1996, the band reformed again in 2004 before tragedy struck in 2005 with the untimely death of drummer Tim Morris. After recording a tribute record to Tim, the band remained active releasing a number of EPs and the long player All of the Stars in 2008 and The Beginning and the End in early 2012 along with frequent gigs in Europe and America.

The new album There is Only Now released on the Shoegaze imprint is being met with great critical acclaim.

All In Your Head, Falling Again, Make Me You and Things I Said are for radio play.

Fafa Galoure
As You Are 
10 January 2018

Efrat Cohen (aka Fafa Galoure), singer, writer and composer has been performing and arranging with Asi Ashkenazi since 2012 . The musical style is a bridge between Indie Rock and multiple patterns that range from Classical, Jazz, Blues, Soul, Ballad and Punk.
 
The songs reveal an internal emotional landscape that exists alongside the external day to day.
They expose personal ideals, hopes, processes and inner conflicts which arise when you struggle to be true to yourself despite your ideas about what is expected of you. The musical framework allows for delicate emotions to surface, as in the song Hero, that deals with the paradoxical nature of feeling enslaved and overwhelmed by demands, whilst affirming to yourself that you are a hero in order to keep trying. Creating harmony between one's inner world and the outside world has been at the core of Efrat's musical journey.

Fafa Galoure have been receiving great reviews in Israel and are being played on numerous radio shows and blogs since Tingle my Taste and No Sound were released this Summer.
 
The band took many turns over the years in terms of arrangements, band members and production. Finally, after three years of brewing and successfully reaching their goal in a local fund raising campaign, They are launching their debut album, As You Are, produced by Omer Hershman.
