“Alex Bayly's 'Clear Air Turbulence'...It's a soft, dreamy piece of guitar pop” - Clash Magazine “Beautiful”- BBC Introducing “Gorgeous ethereal balladry” - It’s All Indie 'The track is rich in his brittle but sweet vocals, Americana tinted guitars and soothing backing vocals, it's certainly one you'll be having on repeat.' —*It's All Indie *
'Dreamy guitar licks and a tight bass line keep this track driving like a folk arrow through snow.' —*Chillfltr *
'[New America] It’s this duality that perhaps works best for Alex Bayly and goes a long way in creating a unique voice in a scene dominated by big American names. Indeed I can’t once remember any track as quintessentially English as St. Valentine to also contain slide guitar.' —Tapes Tell Tales In February of 2018 Alex Bayly arrived on My Little Empire Records with his beautiful debut single ‘Wade in the Water’, channelling the gorgeous ethereal balladry of Jeff Buckley and the off-kilter guitar work of Andy Shauf.
The Graft NW1
ENTT are a three-piece Alternative Electronic Band from London, UK. Formed in 2017, their paths crossed through their love of music, and a simple recording session sparked the start of the reformation of ENTT. All three members have been involved in the music industry for around 10 years between them, and their range of skills are extensive; guitar, piano, lead vocals, backing vocals, production, editing, mixing and sound engineering. These highly talented entrepreneurs are self-sufficient in their abilities, and have the tools and skills to move forward as a band.
Their aim is to bring alternative and electronic music, and infuse the two genres together to see the reaction that will be made as a result of their experimental work. As a live band, ENTT combine the raw elements of rock with alternative drums, 80’s lead guitars, hard-hitting basses and work this with the electronic input of highly complex, but rewarding synthesisers, essentials such as sample pads and the influence of Dance with the live backing of DJ Decks.
Kaan Kara and Elliott Caffrey have been involved in an earlier version of ENTT and other projects before the current formation you see today. The duo are also business entrepreneurs, running their own recording studio business known as ENTT Studios. Mary Marie has used her vocals as her instrument throughout the majority of her life, previously being involved with world renowned artists and record labels, before finding her paths leading to a band life.
With influences ranging from modern electronic artists, to alternative two, three- and four-piece London based bands, the UK collective are wanting to experiment within their genre. Researching and working ideas previously thought to be untouchable and unworkable.
