To coincide with the latest in their special events showcasing the incredible talent currently emerging from Yorkshire and beyond, RICHARD WATSON (promoter of the 360 Club in Leeds) and ALAN RAW (presenter of BBC Introducing West Yorkshire and BBC Introducing Humberside) are proud to announce that the evening will double as a launch night for SMALL ISLANDS, the latest single from Leeds trio EVERYDAY PEOPLE, and also for RIVER, the second single from Doncaster’s ADMT.
Taking place on FRIDAY 18 OCTOBER – and subtitled #360RAW10 – the event will also feature SHADES from Leeds and LINK LEWIS from Huddersfield, and local-based DJ sets throughout the night courtesy of Alan Raw.
Recorded at Beat Street Studios by Oliver Sekunda, SMALL ISLANDS, the band’s latest single, highlights the soulful sounds of EVERYDAY PEOPLE, providing catharsis for those dreaming of a better place. Despite the meditative exterior, however, the song subtly portrays struggles of depression and anxiety, tapping into a familiar want and need to start over somewhere better. All of this is tackled with smooth guitar riffs, wistful organ and talk of strolling along beaches, under palm trees, in the Pacific Ocean.
The single continues the exciting rise of EVERYDAY PEOPLE. Having already played a sold-out show at the legendary Leeds Brudenell Social Club, alongside a wide variety of Leeds venues such as Headingley Stadium, the Lending Room and Wharf Chambers, the band will tour the UK in early 2020.
A master of intricate experimental indie, ADMT launches RIVER, the follow up to his debut DEMONS, which captured hearts and ears alike. ADMT is Adam Taylor, originally from Doncaster, whose unique sound falls somewhere between soul, pop and RnB, and who finds himself currently sat on a wealth of unapologetically catchy songs, taking inspiration from love, loss, heartache and growing up as a young man in the 21st Century.
He brings his reliable lyricism to life with insatiable melodies and slick production. Having already scooped support from Huw Stephens at BBC Introducing, who haled his debut as a “stunner”, the future is already looking bright and prosperous for ADMT.
