“Blink” Music: For the Love of Burt and Wilderness

Today’s #MusicMonday is a little different to the usual tracks we pick to share with you. Today’s is the next step in our build up to Wilderness festival which kicks off on Friday. This year’s headline act is the legendary Burt Bacharach, and Wilderness has teamed up with Mahogany Sessions to create a series of videos set in the stunning Cornbury Park festival location, each one featuring a different artist or group with their version of a BB classic.

Here we have videos from We Were Evergreen (a Blink fav) and Sivu

Whoop whoop. WE CANNOT WAIT!!!!! For more Wilderness news, check out their website. For more events news, look here, and for more music, then just click here.


“Blink” Music: We Were Evergreen, ‘Baby Blue’

We spent the weekend in the sun filled grounds of Lulworth Castle, with thousands of other people, all joining in the crazy fun that is Camp Bestival. On Sunday morning, as we (rather slowly) prepared ourselves for another day of festival craziness, we were tempted to the main stage by this band. What better way to forget that festi hangover than to get your wiggle on with a wonderful up beat new music discovery?

We Were Evergreen are a Parisian alternative indie-electro-pop trio formed in 2008. Their shape-shifting pop songs blend folk melodies, electro beats and exotic rhythms. I had to swipe all of that from their website, because my brain has still not quite re-engaged from the weekend’s festivities. Thanks Camp Bestival for an awesome time, and thanks for bringing these guys to our attention. We hope that you all enjoy them on a Monday workday as much as we did in a field on a sunny Sunday. Oh, and if you are into them, they are playing at various other festivals through the season, and will be at Jazz Cafe later on October 9th. Maybe we’ll see you there?
