Band Milo Gore has shared their music video for their single ‘Green Eyes’. The single is lifted off of their upcoming album title, How Do You Cope While Grieving For The Living? (August 2020). Milo Gore cites musical influence from acts like Girl in Red, Penelope Isles, The 1975, Bears Den and Idles.The band consists of university pals, including lead singer and founder Milo. ‘Green Eyes’ chronicles Milo’s previous heartbreak.
Milo Gore explains in further detail, “The ‘Green Eyes’ music video is about the rise and fall of Milo’s past relationship. The video depicts the story of how he and his girlfriend first met, and consequently, how they drifted apart. The two should have never ended up together – they both had issues with their mental health, issues that were clearly going unchecked. Perhaps that’s what initially brought them together? However, it was sadly the thing that also tore them apart.
The ‘Green Eyes’ video was performed by Grace Collett and Robi Schein Bogdanov. Robi is portraying lead singer Milo and his first meeting with his girlfriend until the bittersweet ending, where he ends up at the exact meeting spot alone but content, as the video ends with Robi smiling.
London based singer-songwriter Lisabel has released her debut album, A Work Of Art on May 5th. The album was recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered at Brother Sun Sister Moon Productions Studio by Nikola Kovačević. Thus far, she has been supported by the likes of Le Future Wave, comeherefloyd, Talk About Pop Music.

The songstress has played in renowned London music venues such as The Half Moon, Pizza Express Jazz Club (Soho and Chelsea), O2 Academy Islington to name a few.
Lisabel shares her thoughts on the album, “A Work of Art is a collection of songs that all share the theme of love from various points of view, often using metaphors to refer to a lover. A work of art is commonly portrayed as an object/creation of beauty, inside of which we can lose ourselves due to an overwhelming feeling that we can’t quite point out. In Lisabel’s mind, ‘A Work of Art’ is a person who she believes to be a symbol of joy, kindness, and love, an imperfect soul whose purity is unmistakable and undeniable. The album unfolds in a chronological order which follows personal events that have inspired Lisabel to write the songs. Starting from ‘Salamander Souls’ and ending with ‘Dear Moon’, each song represents a feeling and a moment in which Lisabel experienced a positive revelation about the beauty of life, people, love, and nature.
Lisabel takes you on a journey of romance, joy, and life in her debut. Her graceful vocals shine throughout the album, which is a well-integrated and wholesome work of art.

I’d initially wanted to remain off-screen for the video, but Jesus had other ideas and sent floods to Wales meaning our actors couldn’t make it. Luckily Patrick Bethell is a good friend of mine so didn’t mind getting close and personal! Some might say it was my plan all along…”
