Pariis Opera House release music video for “Your Body, My Tune”

Pariis Opera House is an electronic band hailing from London. Their latest release, “Your Body, My Tune” is taken from the album MIRRORS (2017), which the band have described as “the soundtrack to life and love in our digital age”.

Founded in 2011, the duo have played festivals and shows across the UK, received regular play on BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 6 Music, and had their songs featured on television and in films, such as Hello, My Name is Doris.

“Your Body, My Tune” is a bright and perky pop-punk anthem, with a catchy motif and kicking beat. Perfectly accompanying it, the futuristic video – directed and animated by Thibault Zeller – is reminiscent of old 90s/00s video games. Good memories.

Check it out.

FEATURED SONG: Hidden Gentlemen – “Jericho”

Hidden Gentlemen are an alternative rock band from Glastonbury. I first met them when we shared the bill last year at a gig at The Louisiana in Bristol and they’re really nice guys (which I now realise is a testament to their name). Consisting of Mark Anthony (vocals, guitar), Kyle Cullen (drums, vocals) and Greg Shepheard (bass, vocals), the band have played various festivals in the UK, as well as toured individually in Germany and the U.S.

They have released three EPs to date, including 2017’s Quietly Step Inside, and since February this year have been releasing a new single every month, the first of which is “Jericho”.


The smooth, upbeat song is about the journey of life. It has such an uplifting and infectious energy that it’s one of those feel-good songs you’ll play on repeat.

In addition to their monthly release project, Hidden Gentlemen give their fans the opportunity to watch their writing and recording sessions via livestream on Twitch, every Saturday from 2:30 PM (BST).

FEATURED EP: Oscar Jerome

London-based musician and singer-songwriter Oscar Jerome released his eponymous debut EP last week. After spending years grafting in the music scene and refining his talent, the young artist unveils a work consisting of four weighty tracks that are certainly a testament to that.

It’s hard to define Jerome’s sound as it’s a peculiar mixture. The influences of jazz, hip-hop and soul are clear, but it’s more aptly described as alternative. With contemplative and obscure lyrics, and arrangements that have carefully been thought out, he creates something original and mysterious that captures your attention from start to finish.

Casually, Jerome rap-sings on the up-beat opening track “Give Back What You Stole From Me,” featuring a cool, repetitive hook; whereas on the slower “2 Sides” words slip out, which, coupled with the moody tone, forges a hazy recount from what feels like a dark room in his head. When he shouts sometimes his voice becomes fiercely coarse, and throughout the EP Oscar’s delivery sits comfortably in amongst the instrumentation of electric guitar, drums, bass, saxophone, trumpet, keys – there’s even a string quartet on the last track “Evil Song”.

Produced by Jerome, Jay Sylvian, Thomas Heigl and Maxwell Owin, this EP feels like getting lost in a mystery novel. The ambient and abstract nature of his compositions is dream-like and well worth a listen. And if you’re slightly bewildered or dazed after the first listen, that’s a good thing – it means you should give it another spin.
