New Release – Mountain Song by Sophie and Alex Dorsten: Award winning, international recording artist Sophie Dorsten is an Indie-Pop/Alt Z singer/songwriter born and raised in the Phoenix, Arizona area (USA). Sophie has been writing and releasing EP’s and singles since she was 13.

“Music is my passion and I love that I can do this every day.”

When the world shut down and the live shows stopped due to the pandemic, Sophie and her brother Alex combined forces and started creating songs together. They write and record in their home studio and have been releasing songs since. They work well together as you can hear on their songs – the lyrics, creativity, music, and production are beyond their years.

In March 2022 Sophie and Alex travelled to London (UK) where they were invited to record at both RAK Studios and Abbey Road Studios, Studio Two as well as perform at several venues with local artists. Their upcoming release ‘Mountain Song’ was recorded at RAK Studios.

“It was such an amazing experience, and we are so excited ‘Mountain Song’ is the first song to release from that trip. Alex was given the opportunity to use a 1965 Gibson J200 that Jimmy Page played on the song ‘Babe I’m Gonna Leave You’ and others from the ‘Led Zeppelin’ album. We were so thrilled and grateful to have that guitar on all our songs from that studio! I feel like it makes the song glow and of course Alex loved playing it!”

“‘Mountain Song’ is about wanting to be with someone you can’t be with. Someone that was so close to you. You can’t be with them because they left you abruptly, with no explanation. The memories of all the good times you spent together, now leave you feeling empty. Holding on to all those memories, you now mustsomehow heal without getting a “goodbye” or closure.”

“We created a fun video from our tour in Portland and Seattle and even some shots from some of our London shows. We have uploaded it to Vevo through Ingrooves which will put it out to YouTube on the song’s release day! It’s a fun but silly look at us behind the scenes.”

‘Mountain Song’ releases August 11th. A pre-save is available here.

In the spotlight – Bar II

In our present, urban times, dominated by show-offs and pretenders, Bar II keep their mysteries to themselves. They won’t abide by the dictatorship of imagery only to focus on pure, raw, dark deranged rock music. May they raise the bar, too. Bar II comprises of Mr Du Penfast and BARThom, who discovered that they were both not satisfied with their previous production experiences, but had complementary skills to make something […]
