Single Review... JP Cooper - When The Darkness Comes

Manchester based singer song writer JP Cooper has came back into our view once again since we had the pleasure to review his previous single Satellite'.

When The Darkness Comes is the self titled track from his upcoming EP, released 19th of January. After being premiered on The Music Ninja on the 12th of December, it has already racked in impressive views on YouTube and we are not surprised whatsoever. The track is full of excellent soulful melodies and gritty hip hop influenced background beats, you wouldnt expect anything less from JP. We predict big things to come from this sparkling talent and we believe 2015 might just be his breakthrough year!

Sounds of 2015 - #7 - Palace

As little as six months ago you could've gone past the rather inconspicuous term, 'Palace', without batting an eye-lid. After a support slot of Jamie T's comeback summer tour and a stellar debut EP, our sights are firmly glued on them from now on.


2014 was has been by no means a big year for the London quartet but instead the building of a foundation of what ought to be a fast-paced year ahead of them in 2015. As mentioned, Jamie T himself gave them the nod to accompany him on his comeback shows and has given them further support by inviting them on his European tour next year, so there's more exposure to come. They've earned the praises of the likes of Huw Stephens and their début EP, 'Lost In The Night', was given a commendable 8/10 by us this year.

Their blend of sleazy guitars and bluesy vocals are brimming with archaic nature, which somehow fits so perfectly into today's music scene. 'Bitter', is one of the most beautifully crafted songs of the year but peel back the layers and you'll reveal 'Veines'; an old crooners crackling rendition of modern day romance. There's nothing really like them at the moment but they're in no rush to go full throttle just yet, as they've told us. Next year should be the steady making of Palace and their tranquil music both on record and live.
