The AT Blog //

Our blog is curated by the AT team, with a select group of friends and music aficionados also contributing content. Driven by the same passions as the label, we aim to give some much-deserved publicity and promotion to music and artists that can otherwise go uncovered and indeed, undiscovered by the more mainstream, trend driven press.

For us, the blog is a platform to showcase and celebrate the creativity and vision of musicians, artists and bands that we love, whilst giving us another opportunity to support new or emerging bands and artists as much as possible.

We hope you find something you like.

New Music: Tony Njoku – As We Danced

With a life that has been lived out in two of the world’s most vibrant and often chaotic metropolises – London and Lagos – you might expect Tony Njoku’s sound to be gritty and urban.

New Music: Sølv – All to You

London based singer/songwriter/producer Sølv styles her music as ‘alternative ambient pop with a dark edge’, and that is a fair summation of her superior take on an RNB infused sound, as exemplified on All to You. Check out the self-directed 80s art house influenced video for the track below.

The Weekly Roundup 10.06.18

British rising stars Hookworms caused a debate on Twitter when they highlighted the use of alcohol as payment for bands when they play gigs. It’s worth reflecting on as the mental health of musicians is something that has been to the fore recently and it made me reflect on the unwitting harm we can do to others, even when we mean well. The alcohol rider is an accepted, usually unwritten part of a band’s performance contract but maybe it’s a practice that does need reconsidering. But now, on with the music!
