Single reviews: PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL, LISBEE STAINTON, PICTUREHOUSE, JOHN LENNON McCULLAGH

PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL – Pretzelbodylogic

www.3rdeyegirl.com

Prince has been playing a series of last minute gigs in London under the ‘Hit And Run’ moniker, ranging from intimate venues to the larger Shepherd’s Bush Empore. This is his new musical project, an all female band 3RDEYEGIRL, who consist of Donna Grantis (guitarist), Ida Nielsen (bass) and Hannah Ford Welton (drums).

It’s a good a funk rock tune – very tasty bass and guitar riffs on here, with Prince in fine vocal form as you’d expect. The band’s debut album ‘Plectrumelectrum’ is released later this year and if it’s as good as this single it will be an album well worth having. ****

LISBEE STAINTON – Eloise

Marionet Music [Released 24th March 2014] www.lisbee.com

Lisbee Stainton releases this third single of her latest album ‘Word Games’ which received rave reviews. She is also seemingly never off the road having just finished touring as a support to Seth Lakeman (who co-wrote two songs on her last album) and she has a series of headlining dates this month.

The most instant song on her album ‘Eloise’ is a breezy tune, a perfect example of folk pop. She is gaining rave reviews and fans with each release and rightly so. If you’ve yet to experience her music what are you waiting for? ****

JOHN LENNON McCULLAGH – Towerland Lullaby

359 Music [Released 24th March 2014]

Signed to Alan McGee’s label 359 Music, his debut album ‘North South Divide’ released last year received plaudits including oen from Billy Bragg and he’s supported the likes of Richard Hawley, the Babyshambles and the Enemy. All this and he is still a teenager!

Imagine Oasis with a more melodious singer (cue hate emails!) and crisp rhythm section you’d have this song. John Lennon McCullagh has the talent and the tunes, surely the success will naturally follow. Get in at the start of what should surely be a massively successful musical career. ****

PICTUREHOUSE – Rules Of Science

PHRC [Released March 17th 2014]

Currently playlisted on BBC Radio 2 PictureHouse release this new single ahead of their comeback album ‘Evolution’ due in May (although this has already been released in their native Ireland). What a cracking tune this is! Crowded House and cult band Red Box come to mind as the song features a soothing vocal and uplifting chorus. Another band that seemed to have escaped my attention until now. A high quality tune brimful of melody, prefect *****
