First formed in the autumn of 2009, the five-member band "Hype!" plays alternative rock with the sincerity and energy of a garage band fanatically committed to total authenticity of expression. Their sound image is a sublimation of classical rock and proto punk and, at the same time, a repercussion of vibes from the most inspiring eras of the Detroit, Seattle and Los Angeles music scenes all rolled into one uncompromising and straight-up 21st century rock.
Having split up from his original band the Mojo Pins in order to study medicine at Birmingham University, singer/songwriter Will Lawson has started writing new material to perfom as a solo acoustic artist in what is left of his free time. Recent summer holidays have proved to be vital for the recording, mixing and mastering of the first four of these songs and IndieGuild is excited to have the honour of presenting them here.
The idea of saxophonist Pino Ciccarelli when he first formed "Concerto Musicale Speranza" was to create a musical project that would highlight traditional concert band music through a reworking of some of the most significant compositions used to accompany popular rituals and processions in the Italian peninsula and thereby to establish a bridge between the present and the past.
