Phoebe Bridgers – Scott Street (Live)


No Comments

Phoebe Bridgers – Scott Street an exclusive live performance for Vevo DSCVR, the channel for the best in new music.

It’s a real skill to wax forlorn without submitting to the depths of despair. In the last two years Phoebe Bridgers has shown us just how articulate she can be regarding the troubled side of life while still touting the small joys that mark most day to day experiences. Again and again, the singer-songwriter revels in the marvels of the emotional deets that shape who we are. After critics erupted over the eloquence of the 23-year-old’s ‘Stranger In The Alps’ (get the ‘Lebowski’ reference?), the Silver Lake-based Bridgers went through a wave of Joni-Jackson comparisons. Elements of the masters dot her songs, but some of her more recent heroes are Sun Kil Moon’s Mark Kozelek and Elliot Smith – tender wordsmiths whose best work is both vulnerable and poised. If you know Bridgers’ “Smoke Signals” and “Motion Sickness,” you might’ve heard her “Scott Street” before, too. But not like this. Our DSCVR performance turns the tune, inspired by a sunset stroll through her Echo Park hood, into an epic lament. Swirling fiddle lines and cloudy guitar flourishes prove the singer knows exactly what she needs to bolster her designs as she closes with farewell line of “don’t be a stranger.” Masterful.

Boyzone – Because


No Comments

Boyzone have just dropped the lead single from their upcoming final album, a catchy, country-tinged number co-written by hitmaker Ed Sheeran called Because.

As well as Sheeran, the emotive song features writing credits for Ronan Keating, Amy Wadge and John Shanks and will be released as part of their final record Thank You & Goodnight which will be released on November 16.

The song’s singalong attraction is highlighted in the video, which sees Boyzone perform in all-white suits on a TV screen while Ronan, Keith, Mikey and Shane all belt along with the track at karaoke.

The video also features clips of Boyzone fans from all around the world singing the hook.

Thank You & Goodnight also sees the Irish boyband collaborate with another special guest songwriter in the shape of Take That’s Gary Barlow on Love.

Boyzone recently announced details of the Thank You & Goodnight farewell tour that commences next January including a show at Dublin’s 3Arena on January 24.

While announcing the tour they said: “When we started out as five young Dublin Northsiders, eager to face the world, we never imagined that we’d still have an army of fans some twenty-five years later…

“If you’d seen our famous first TV appearance on The Late Late Show (skip to 6 minutes for that epic dance routine!), you’d probably be surprised too!”

They continued: “But what followed was the stuff of dreams. We’ve played stadiums and arenas all over the world, released six albums, and had almost two dozen hits. We really can’t put into words just how much you, the fans, have supported us along the way. Without that support, we would have never achieved what we have, and for that we’re eternally grateful.”

Ebenezer – 53 Sundays (Live) | Vevo DSCVR


No Comments

Ebenezer – 53 Sundays an exclusive live performance for Vevo DSCVR, the channel for the best in new music. Ready to hear a little gospel? Good, because Ebenezer is ready to preach.

The UK singer showed up to our performance space with a chorus of four vocalists and took everyone to church on one of his newest songs, “53 Sundays.” It puts the passion in the foreground, and it makes you want to watch the young performer a whole lot more. A handful of artists know that Ebenezer has plenty of skills. He’s worked with Craig David, Ty Dolla $ign and Jeremih, and split tracks with Rejjie Snow and Col3trane. Last year he caught a nice buzz with “Cliché,” which he deemed “a testament to who I am.” So is last year’s “Ask Around,” which finds the young MC hitting the gas on his swag. Ultimately, it’s that kind of authority and daring you hear in his voice – there’s no mistaking the spirit when Ebenezer has the mic in hand. Roll through our exclusive take on “53 Sundays” and wait for the goosebumps to arrive. Ebenezer gives it everything he’s got.

Harvester Uncovers Sneaky Conspiracy in Step Change for the Brand


No Comments

For 35 years, Harvester has been serving up freshly grilled ribs and chicken, alongside its iconic salad bar, to the nation. To mark this milestone, Pablo the lead agency were tasked to create an advertising campaign that celebrated the iconic brand’s role in British culture and challenged perceptions. With a roll-out plan for refurbished Harvester restaurants across the country, the brand is seeking to reinforce its credentials as a leading destination for British diners.

The new campaign – comprising VOD, radio and social – represents a deliberate move towards a more provocative and fun tone for Harvester; in line with its ‘fresh thinking’ brand platform that aims to bring a fresh perspective to dining out, with original and entertaining viewpoints on popular culture.

The ads are built on an insight gathered via social listening; that up and down the country many Harvester fans were tweeting their outrage at being left out of a Harvester visit. In a nod to the popular true crime genre, the campaign seeks to uncover this mysterious ‘phenomenon’ of the ‘sneaky Harvester’.

Sarah Gamble, head of brand marketing, said: “As a well-loved brand with a 35-year heritage we wanted to celebrate the passion felt by our fans, but reacquaint audiences with our fun, entertaining and modern side. Pablo have created a bold piece of communication that is really relevant and represents a step change for the brand.”

Mark Sng, partner and head of planning at Pablo said: “Harvester is a cultural institution so it’s only right that we showcase the extent to which Harvester FOMO sparks very real emotions. We’re excited to be working with the brand in this next phase of the its evolution, reclaiming their rightful place at the heart of the casual dining sector.”

Dermot Kennedy – Glory (Live) | Vevo DSCVR


No Comments

Some singers bring it from the heart, some from the gut. When Dermot Kennedy lays into a lyric, his voice unites both regions, and the result is utterly expressive. The Irish singer-songwriter, who learned his craft in the shadow of heroes such as Glen Hansard and David Grey (two other artists who know about wearing their heart on their sleeve) is becoming more and more expert at calibrating drama.

As his 2013 EP ‘Dancing Under Red Skies’ indicated, his songs strive for the epic, and they often attain their goal. 2016’s “”After Rain”” resonated with lots of listeners – check those Spotify numbers – and his inspired production (tempered with hip-hop elements) on the ‘Doves & Ravens’ EP is giving his folk-pop essence a bit more muscle…and earning him lots of new fans as well. Passion is key to the young singer’s approach. You’ll see it immediately in our DSCVR performance of “”Glory.”” Share with anyone who is looking for the real deal.
