Animated by Emmett Elvin of psychedelic rock band Knifeworld, the stunning new video can be seen below.

Laura Meade - Remedium

The vocalist of Izz, Laura Meade, has finally released her debut solo album. Having some prog elements here and there, the album is more laid back, atmospheric and ambient on the whole. It still maintains various pop melodies along with an acoustic character and it’s generally straightforward, especially when it is compared to the Izz’s releases.

The Tangent to release new studio album “Proxy” on November 16th 2018

The Tangent, the progressive rock group led by Andy Tillison, will release their 10th studio album “Proxy” on November 16th, 2018.

Recorded during the band's tour with Karmakanic in 2017/18, which saw them with more chances than normal to work together on the record - hotel writing sessions, van discussions, soundcheck ideas - all of which have allowed the band to make an album that is as organic as they have achieved since their formation 15 years ago.
