We’re thrilled to announce that Pentatonic is set to host their first BlueJay session on Tuesday, January 23rd at 7pm.
Pentatonic is an online magazine publication that offers a variety of content including interviews, reviews, fresh playlists and recommendations for new underground and indie music. With such a wide variety of coverage, and plenty of artist discussed on their website, this BlueJay session looks geared up to be an exciting one!
Be sure to read our interview below to find out more about Pentatonic and why you’ll want to tune in to their weekly sessions every Tuesday!
In one sentence “We’re a music magazine aimed at the grass roots of the music industry”. The deeper you look into The Pentatonic the more you realise the depth of the music industry and the impact it has on the world. There’s a whole world out there that most people haven’t tapped into; we aim to bring this world to everybody’s attention and give the hardworking bands the publicity they deserve. There’s bands you’ve never heard of playing more shows and recording better music than half of the crap in the charts, you just need to look in the right places.
Music is a way of life, it runs through your body and pulses with your heart. The world ticks with the beat of a drum, from Brazilians with their samba music, to the Spanish with their flamenco; from African tribes with their ceremonial music to English parties with this beautiful blend of genres we are blessed with.
There’s new music popping up all over the place and even we can’t keep track of it all, our current favourites are Violet Contours, Ravellas, No Hot Ashes, Beach Royals; the list is endless. Tune into our sessions and keep and eye on our bi-weekly playlists to keep up to date with the new music we’re falling in love with.
We’re interested in the individuality of a band. Anybody can pick up a guitar and write a song about a party they had a university where they took drugs and fell in love with a girl; we want to hear something personal, something you’ve poured your heart and soul into. There’s no specific sound we look for, we love a wide variety from metal, indie, electronic, spoken work, r&b; you name it and we’ve got it playing in our ears.
Our Bluejay sessions will be an opportunity to showcase some of the best talent coming from all over the UK and keep you up to date with the best shows coming up. We will be playing you exclusive live recording with some of our favourite bands who we’ve met up with to perform stripped back acoustic versions of their songs.
We will be showcasing all genres of music from all over the UK, giving a platform to the artists who deserve it most, starting out with the winners of our poll for 2017’s best song, Ladies. If you want to hear your favourite song from Taylor Swift this probably isn’t the place for you, but if you want to hear an incredible song from your next favourite band then tune into “Pentatonic Presents” on Tuesdays!
