A Lot Of Luck

Canada is known for being the birthplace of great artists, and this holds true for Adam Ashten, a talented musician and composer from the city of Nanaimo who is here today to gift us his latest musical masterpiece, titled 'A Lot Of Luck.'

This has been a year filled with significant achievements for Ashten, with numerous successful releases; 'A Lot Of Luck' stands as his ninth single of the year. Together, these releases have accumulated thousands of plays on his socials, with the latest one already surpassing 4,200 plays on Spotify to date.

Ashten's style has a captivating effect on rock enthusiasts, skillfully combining elements of diverse subgenres of rock music. He blends the classic with the contemporary in a masterful way that proves his versatility and authenticity. This release not only reinforces this premise but also highlights his ability and uniqueness to create solid musical pieces — true anthems that deeply resonate with the audience.

'A Lot Of Luck' is an emotionally charged track that distinguishes itself from his previous works, notably in its sound, which leans more towards classic rock and even incorporates elements of 90s Britpop. This song explores a compelling theme centered on the 'here and now,' employing skillful lyric composition with tangible elements serving as thought-provoking metaphors. It encourages listeners to take a moment to carefully observe the often-overlooked aspects of their surroundings, emphasizing that even the smallest details can bring genuine happiness, inviting us to appreciate life for what it offers each day.

The instrumentation work presents itself in a perfect balance, allowing each musical instrument to shine both collectively and individually in the mix. Coupled with Adam's distinctive voice perfomance, which establishes an intimate connection with the listener from the first notes, 'A Lot Of Luck' is undoubtedly one of his standout works, serving as a true hymn and a wake-up call for those facing difficulties and adversity in life.

Ball&Chain (with The Smackbar)

Today at Bad Wolf Records, we are pleased to welcome the incredible band Eruption Artistique, a musical collective hailing from Rotterdam, Netherlands. Comprising talented musicians who join forces to completely shake up the current music scene.

Their latest studio release, "Ball&Chain (With the Smackbar)," was officially premiered on December 11th. This song serves as their second single of 2023, emerging as a successful collaboration that blends elements from various musical genres, making it nearly impossible to categorize this band into a single genre. However, they carry the essence of rock deep within their melodies, sharp guitar riffs, and a powerful percussion.

The authenticity of Eruption Artistique is palpable from the first note. Its a band full of energy and euphoria, not only capable of creating incredibly catchy songs but also delivering an auditory experience that heightens the senses. With a comprehensive and rich instrumentation that magnificently employs numerous musical instruments, some of which are unconventional in the rock genre, such as the saxophone and minor percussion elements, they create a sonic amalgamation that gives rise to a vibrant mixture, imbuing it with a spontaneous and organic character.

Regarding their incredible instrumental work, Sara, the vocalist, asserts herself with originality and incredible flair. Her melodies traverse powerful vocal lines with filtering effects that inspire a sense of empowerment, transitioning to harmonies that are simply celestial, inviting the listener to undergo a complete auditory catharsis.

Another noteworthy aspect is how they craft their own structure in each of their songs. For instance, in "Ball&Chain," their electrifying guitar solos not only hold a distinct place within the song but also serve as a bridge, connecting its different sections in a unique manner. In this way, Eruption Artistique is one of those bands that seamlessly merge the creativity of the human mind with the skill of music as a discipline, providing an incredible surprise from the first listen. They are the kind of band you hear on the radio or in a movie soundtrack, making you go crazy to write down their name anywhere as fast as possible, then search for them on Spotify to immerse yourself in their discography.

Eruption Artistique is undoubtedly an incredible discovery for anyone fortunate enough to experience their music. That's why we're making things easy for you now.
