Carnival Youth have the best press shots!

We spend (probably) far too long harvesting assets to promote the acts that we represent within our systems.

 

It is true that good bands make good music, but often we’re left hoping for more to work with than just their audio attributes.

 

Latvian indie rock band Carnival Youth are a perfect example of a band who are getting it right.

 

Good shots are monumentally important part of the promotion process in 2018, where social media is king.

 

Carnival Youth consistently the best of the bunch, original and full character.

 

Here’s a dig into some of our favorites from the last few years. If only more musicians took this much pride in their look!

Forgotten Roger Taylor record, back in the limelight!

30 years in the shadows, what a wonderful record to have made it back into the public eye.

We’ve synced this into some very special bespoke retail spaces which will be the only places in the world this record can be heard until it becomes digitally available at the end of September.

“Originally released back in 1984, ‘Two Sharp Pencils’ is a record by Queen drummer Roger Taylor – Official, featuring him on vocals as well as drums, bass & guitar.

 It’s A rare B-Side that long resided in the shadows, worshiped by the stanchest fanatics and those fortunate enough to have stumbled upon it.

 Fast forward 30 years and Two Sharp Pencils is back, ready for a 2017 spin on your turntables.

 The records is full of character, unexpected turns and moments of joyful brilliance, it’s every DJs dream: Statement records that will illuminate every dancefloor and stage at which it is dropped”
