Influenced by both hip-hop and electronic music, Bandeauxx. is a project focused on minimal, electronic pop. Yes, there's rapping. Yes, there's singing too. "I wanted to create a more open-ended take on music that reflected the world we actually live in" says Bandeauxx. "Where ideas and creativity combine to form something greater than the sum of its parts". Bandeauxx. is currently working on a series of projects and playlists focused on non-traditional electronic sounds.
The whole driving force behind the True To Form EP was "do the most honest music you can". Mixing elements from deep house to dancehall, hip-hop and electronic music as whole, True To Form as an EP is planting a flag for a sound in an ever-shifting musical climate.

Now, fully realized, Bandeauxx. is ready to show the world a new sound in and outside of the festivals.
The SirensSound presents the new single "Baby" by Basement Revolver.
"Baby is about feeling sad and down even though you are generally happy about everything and everyone in your life. It’s about feeling confused about what I want in life, and how that affects other people. It is about crying a lot and feeling like I was burdening my partner with those questions. It is also about my tendency to retreat when things get too overwhelming, to spend all day and night in my bed and watching netflix and eating doritos. "Baby" was written at a point in my relationship where I was so happy with my partner and with the things in my life at that point – but I felt an overall dissatisfaction and sadness that I couldn’t explain. I’d be having a really nice date, and I would start crying, and I didn’t know why. Sadness was just there, sitting with me in uncertainty. So I dealt with it by trying to sleep it off, or hanging out on my own. I felt like this depressive state was affecting those around me in a negative way and I felt guilty about that.
The chorus on this one pretty much states clearly how I was feeling – “Baby I’m so sorry, I’m trying my best to figure this out, I swear that I’m so happy, this crying won’t fix what’s already broken and dead, just give me some time”.
"Baby" will be part of the new album ‘Heavy Eyes’ out this summer via Sonic Unyon (North America) & fear of missing out (UK).
Nick performs and records with Saxsyndrum, Best Fern, and Rêves Sonores. As to why he’s waited until now to produce work under his own name, Schofield says, “I’ve always worked on music under a moniker or as a band, so this is somewhat exposed solo territory for me. Having grown up going to galleries and exhibitions with my mom, I always held high regard for artists who go by their own name. Personally, it implies acceptance. This music is ‘me’, it just felt like the most natural nomenclature.”
Nick Schofield continues the ambient tradition pioneered by Hiroshi Yoshimura and Brian Eno, allowing for the soothing effects to wash over us all.
Schofield is a Montreal-based musician, producer and radio host with a BFA in Electroacoustic Studies from Concordia University.
Comprised of minimal instrumentation and field-recordings, Water Sine is a soundtrack for sleep; an antidote to insomnia. Softness and simplicity. A sound that beckons for tranquility and release.
Water Sine started in June 2016 as a way to create music more fluidly, using somewhat specific production parameters that guided the compositions. Schofield used just one synthesizer (Yamaha PSS-270), one effect pedal (BOSS RV-3) and an Edirol field-recorder.
“Even though I tracked with Ableton Live, I treated the DAW like a 4-track recorder, so I had limited channels and editing options. The music itself is very much my way of coping with insomnia and tapping my nocturnal creative energy.”
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
