Back again after recent single ‘Sliding Off the Edge of the World‘, NuBorg returns with a new single which is beautiful in a whole new way. Falling more into the pop genre, ‘You You’ is a song best described by NuBorg herself (otherwise known as Norwegian singer-songwriter Gunhild Nyborg):
“There are so many of us who aren’t able to see our own true beauty. With the influence from the internet, the bullying, the fashion industry, photoshopping, you name it, it is so easy to feel we’re falling short. Especially for teenagers I’d guess – but I think we all suffer from lack of self love to some degree or another.”
A lovely sentiment then, and a lovely song to go with it.
Halifax’s very own Patrick McCallion is celebrating the rebranding of his musical persona by releasing the track ‘Light Entertainment’ to his fans for free.
As the singer/songwriter in the band ‘Small Words’ Patrick has already caught the attention of some key players in the music business, while previous release ‘Murky Waters’ has been causing quite a stir. The rebrand to ‘Patrick McCallion’s Small Words’ has been prompted by opportunities presenting themselves to Patrick McCallion as a writer and singer. Patrick feels that he has gone through too much under the name ‘Small Words’ to just drop the moniker.
New track ‘Light Entertainment’ is a rip roaring energetic commentary on the banality of lives lived out on social media, but ultimately it’s positive message, that you can achieve your goals with a bit of courage, makes this an uplifting ‘message song!’
There is an intelligent message and social conscience running through Patrick’s music, although this shouldn’t put off music lovers who just want to hear catchy guitar infused pop.
With impressive live performances alongside the likes of Primal Scream, Razorlight, The Fratellis and James Morrison and acclaimed releases ‘Murky Waters’, ‘Neat Little Package’ and ‘Nice’ Patrick McCallion is the real deal.
Punchy intelligent lyrics combined with impressive musicianship will surely see Patrick McCallion achieve anything he puts his mind to.

Those familiar with The Gentle Good Chinese-Welsh folk fusion LP Y Bardd Anfarwol will know of the heady imagery that its sonic exultations evoke. So when looking to create visual accompaniment that would coalesce blissfully with the wide-eyed wonder of the track, we had to aim high.
Thankfully, the resulting collaboration with Jammy Custard Studios matched, exceeded and then promptly combusted our expectations. Following its premiere on S4C last night, we can now unveil the gorgeous animated interpretation of Yr Wylan Fry for your wider delectation.
