Premiere: Regular Band Celebrate Visionaries In New Single ‘Golden Sage’

I know that it’s not easy being different. But what’s worse is thinking that we’re all the same. – Golden Sage Like an ancient spell, Regular Band’s latest single Golden Sage will get into your bones with its catchy chorus and infiltrate your mind with its call to dissent – a call that dares us all to be different.

A passion for 90s UK electronica teamed with bluegrass beginnings makes Innes’ new album Bits interesting, intricate and eclectic listening; in other words, anything but boring.

Aleon has dark moments, but it also has an air of...
