Amy Winehouse 1983 - 2011

Amy Winehouse died this weekend on the 23rd July. She was 27.

Widely known for her raw musical talent, the last years of her life were sadly equally known for her addition to drugs, alcohol and negative relationships.

Her death is a tragic loss to music and she leaves behind a great contribution that will have her remembered for many years to come.

We Are Losers - Debut Single

On Monday the 18th, Ireland's 'We Are Losers' release their debut single featuring  'Cheerleader' and 'Sunset Song'.

Starting out as a bedroom project of guitarist and vocalist Gavin Elsted; Stephen Colan, Bronwyn Murphy-White and Gary Clarke soon joined to became 'We Are Losers' and started making a name for themselves in Dublin's indie scene. Releasing their single through Leeds based 'Dance To The Radio' this band are one to listen out for.

I would recommend this band to fans of 'The Pigeon Detectives'; they are pure unadulterated indie pop at its best!

The single is available on 7" for an extremely reasonable £3.50 from the link below!
