Free Download: David Swinburn "Wrong Shoes" (Frankmusik Remix)

Arjanwrites_david_swinburn

David Swinburn first contacted me a year ago when I was out in Los Angeles to share a demo track he recorded as a voice mail message using his mobile phone. Totally lo-fi, a little eerie and definitely memorable. The Liverpool-based pop singer now returns with a brand-new brew, titled "Wrong Shoes," a song that is much slicker than the voice recording I heard previously.

The song was inspired by a personal experience Swinburn writes me in an email. "I wrote "Wrong Shoes" towards the end of last year," Swinburn comments. "It's about liking someone who you can't have. Someone who's already attached. I think the lyrics are pretty self-explanatory once you get that bit. The inspiration was me really liking a boy, who got a boyfriend just as I was about to announce my undying love for him. I dunno know the shoe analogy came from."

Swinburn asked a bunch of young DJs and producers to remix "Wrong Shoes" and give the tune a little more dancefloor cred. One of the people that reworked the song is Frankmusik who is an emerging new pop phenom in his own right (get a free download of his single "Done, Done"). He fuses the  pop sensibilities of Mylo with the vocals stylings of William Besson. He's a talent to look out for.  In the meantime, the pairing of Swinburn and Frankmusik makes for a solid slice of electro that is positioned somewhere on the wide, wild junction of pop and dance music that has me thirsty for more.

Real True Band "Lies unKnown"

Forget about tuning in to another band that sounds like the last ten you’ve just heard. “Lies unKnown” is a real true to life Detroit Rock & Roll Band. Originating from the
surrounding suburbs, they have united together to bring you some of the best music the Motor City has to offer. Through their live performance at nightclubs, concert theaters and all age events, “Lies unKnown” is gaining recognition while connecting with an audience of all genres. The album tracks are available for download on iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, emusic, LALA and other digital platforms. The full length album can be purchased from the following websites: http://www.myspace.com/LiesunKnown and
http://www.darkgreene.com/.
Home is definitely center stage for the front man, singer/songwriter/guitarist “Justin
Alexander”. As the driving force behind the band, he pours out his soul in each song of his performance. His ability to capture and address the attention of the listener is
reminiscent of many legendary artists of the past. He was born in the city of Detroit on August 16, 1988. His parents were performing musicians, so, Justin started cutting his
teeth on Rock & Roll from day one. But, by the age of five his parents separated, Justin’s heartaches, hard times and life experiences would become his writing template. Heartache seems to run like water in the streets and the pain expressed in his songs are of a broken home and an attempt to recapture what was lost. “Justin’s” lyrics tell of a
path that one has to live to be able to write about.
Bassist “Sara Cole” is probably one of the hottest things that you will ever see with four strings and a skirt! But don’t get fooled by the visual appeal, “Sara” is half of the rock solid driving foundation for “Lies unKnown”. Passion, Emotion and Precision (PEP) are the only words that define “Sara’”, she is prepared and ready for what ever the moment brings, and she definitely delivers the element of surprise to her audience. As a lead guitarist
“Jamie Allen” sets the stage with action, enthusiasm and fire. His approach on stage becomes contagious for anyone watching him perform. “Jamie’s” chops are a compliment to the music of “Lies unKnown”. Flavorsome melodic guitar riffs and superb backing vocals are the principal rudiments to any great live act. These undeniable qualities bring his performances to a new echelon.
“Joe (Joe Pizzazz) Piazza” drummer for “Lies unKnown” has the potential to steal every girl’s heart. Lighting up a stage seems to be effortless as he displays his charismatic persona that magically lures ones imagination. But, the business of performing live
differentiates him from any other; he is all about giving an instinctive hard hitting performance. And, the fans have the satisfaction of experiencing the magic, when he hits
it.
