WATCH: Be More Kind 

Emily Barker is best known as the writer and performer of the award-winning theme to the hit PBS Masterpiece drama Wallander. Growing up in rural Western Australia, Barker fell in love with American roots music from the soul of Aretha Franklin to the country of Gillian Welch and Emmylou Harris. Her travels led her to settling in the UK, where she has released a succession of critically acclaimed albums, including Nashville-recorded Applewood Road.

The Hard Aches are hot off the heels of a national sold out tour as well as the release of their sophomore album, Mess, a collection of songs “Written with a focus on mental health in a hopeful and positive light.”. Their emotive melody-driven punk rock is both anthemic and intimate. Open your ears, open your hearts; they've got some stories to tell.

Frank Turner’s studio album, Be More Kind (released on May 4th through Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor Records), represents a thematic and sonic line in the sand for the 36-year-old.

It’s a record that combines universal anthems with raw emotion and the political and the personal, with the intricate folk and punk roar trademarks of Turner’s sound imbued with new, bold experimental shades. Produced by Austin Jenkins and Joshua Block, formerly of psychedelic-rock Texans White Denim, and Florence And The Machine and Halsey  collaborator Charlie Hugall. “I wanted to try and get out of my comfort zone and do something different,” says Turner. One of the driving themes of the album is empathy, even for your enemy. “You should at least be able

to inhabit the mental universe of the people you disagree with. If you can’t do that, then how do you communicate with people other than through force of arms, which is something we all agree is a bad idea.” 

Behind some of the best songs of Turner’s career is the idea that the human race needs to find better ways of disagreeing than screaming each other down.

These are songs that demand to be heard and Frank Turner is packed and ready to go.
