We're back again with the second edition of our Global Music Match newsletter! And this week it was our turn to be in the hot seat and be featured by our group.
If you're reading this, you probably don't need too much of an introduction to us, as you're either someone who's been desperately coerced into joining our mailing list at a gig, you visited our website, tried to get rid of the pop-up 'subscribe' box and now reluctantly receive our monthly newsletters or you're my mum. So we won't be giving you our life stories but we thought we would briefly share what we've been up to this week.
Here we are looking excited about the week ahead! A week of competitions, Instagram takeovers and interviews. Follow #GlobalMusicMatch to see more and hear us chewing our teammates' ears off about albums, lockdown and being women in music.
We were super psyched that Australian band Hussy Hicks did a cover of 'No More Tears'! Here they are playing their wonderful version of the song on a boat on the River Tweed in New South Wales - as you do! Check them out here.
And in other exciting news, I'll be documenting our Global Music Match experiences in a column in The Morning Star. This week kicked things off with an introduction to the programme and folk music - what is it? A question that sparked an 800-word musical identity crisis. Read the full article here!
We'll be back next week with an introduction to Estonian folktronica band Oopus!
