Ones To Watch 2017 | Part 2

Alice Chater started songwriting at just 14. Now age 21, she her songs are reminiscent of 90's Gwen Stefani with a modern day edge. Her 5 song EP, WonderLAND, was released in 2015, with influences of Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and Etta James. 
She describes her music as being Sassy, bold and emotive, so it's a good thing her seriously insane voice is not shy to belting out a powerful song.
Remember the name Alice Chater. I think you'll be hearing a lot of her this year.

For Fans Of: Christina Aguilera, Lady GaGa, Gwen Stefani, Katy Perry
Personal Favourites: No Title, Crash, I Don't Do That.

A few months back, I was recommended Black Foxxes by a local record store that I frequent at.
The three piece hail in from Exeter, and released their debut album last summer. A mix of haunting lyrics and unfiltered guitars, they create a beautiful blend of rock music that's contemporary yet utterly unique. Emotional outpouring from the start, Black Foxxes are raw and gimmick free, basically what the rock world needs right now.
If their debut album is anything to go by, Black Foxxes could be well on their way to world-wide success.

For Fans Of: Boston Manor, Lonely The Brave, Tigercub, The Xcerts.
Personal Favourites: I'm Not Well, Maple Summer, River.

An online friend recommended Knocked Loose to me towards the end of 2016. The Kentucky natives released their debut album last year, showing off their unique take on hardcore. I don't listen to the huge amount of hardcore -I usually stick to pop punk/ punk- so please don't judge me for saying KL are hardcore. This is about as heavy as I get.
 There's insane breakdowns, catchy riffs and a disturbed depth to the lyrics. There is a real raw, urgency in lead singer, Bryan's voice. Over the past couple of months, I've listened to Knocked Loose a lot, and this album has not got stale in the slightest.

For Fans Of: Hundredth, Code Orange, Rotting Out, Counterparts.
Personal Favourites: The Rain, My Heroes, No Thanks.

I hope you all enjoyed my recommendations for 2017.
