If you haven’t yet heard of SYNCR, now is your chance to get acquainted.
Founded in 2017, SYNCR aims to help elevate artists and their music careers. Sourcing sync and exposure opportunities from high profile brands, films, festivals and music blogs to name a few, SYNCR offers artists a range of briefs to submit their music to; connecting them to opportunities which could boost both their exposure and career.
Here at One Great Song, we’ve teamed up with SYNCR to bring you a new, regular spotlight feature on one of SYNCR’s artists.
Having listened to all of the music submitted to us via SYNCR, we’ve picked both our first spotlight artist and our shortlisted artists to feature on the blog this month.
First up, we’re bringing you music from URF, The Flavians and Crayon, ahead of our first spotlight interview with top pick, Only Sun.
URF - Say You Don't Mind
Manchester five piece URF provide a spacey, psychedelic trip with their genre-fusing sound. Fronted by the dramatised vocals of frontwoman Abbi Parcell, Say You Don’t Mind is far from the typical generic indie sounds coming from the majority of Manchester’s music scene as of late. Spiralling guitar and punch packed drums meet with synth to create a dark atmosphere which simply thrives behind Abbi’s vocals.
The Flavians - On The Radio
Founded over a mutual love of cheap beer and The Beatles, Berlin based quartet The Flavians’ debut single fuses indie pop with 60s and 70s influences. Telling the story of a schizophrenic who calls into a drivetime radio show while speeding through a red light, On The Radio is a stunning example of the refreshing sound the four have to offer; thoughtful yet catchy, The Flavians manage to flawlessly combine their melancholic feel with the upbeat energy of their influences.
Crayon - Funeral
Self described “funk-pop odyssey” Crayon pack plenty of energy into their plucky pop sound. Taken from their debut 6-track EP, Funeral oozes a feel good atmosphere from it’s booming chorus and vibrant guitar hooks. Growing from it’s relatively simple intro into a display of Crayon’s knack for catchy pop, Funeral is a welcoming introduction to the Bristol duo.
