Fresh from recording their debut album with Edywn Collins and recent stars of NME Radar (“theirs is a world of brittle, pre-Pistols raw power – but crucially it also revels in being technically amazing”), Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs are pleased to announce their first UK headline show for 2013.
Taking place at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen on 4th March, the band will be launching their follow up single to the critically acclaimed ‘I Watch You,’ details of which will be revealed very soon!
Find ticket link below plus a tasty live video just in from the band’s set at Camden Barfly for John Kennedy’s XFM X-Posure.
It’s all graveyards and psych-outs in the latest videos from TOY and Charlie Boyer & The Voyeurs. Watch below, and catch both bands at Barfly, Camden this Wedneday 19th December!
Stealing Sheep are back with ‘Rearrange’, the third single from their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Into The Diamond Sun’.
Released digitally on Monday 10th December, the track features B-side ‘Boys In The Band’; their other-worldly take on The Libertines classic recorded exclusively for NME’s ‘Up The Bracket’ 10 year anniversary covers album (listen below).
If you’ve not seen the mini-epic of a video for ‘Rearrange’ yet, then rest assured it’s a three (and a bit) minute glimmering extravaganza filled with “diamonds, smoke, fire, monsters and hypnotism”. Made over the course of a month in various locations including a disused quarry, a warehouse and various art spaces, the band add: “We filmed throughout the night in harsh conditions jumping on a giant trampoline, running in the dark, and animating the diamond eater on a giant crane with an industrial fan blowing in our faces.
“We used a cast of our friends who were, not only happy to contribute to the choreography, but also happy to spend hours in a freezing warehouse to get the perfect shot! We worked with local film maker Jack Whiteley who worked with us on conceptualizing the storyline, shot lists and he filmed, directed and edited the video.”

After a storming set of shows on their UK tour, the band are also gearing up for their first European tour, beginning in France and travelling through Holland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Italy, and finally Spain.
Before the year is out, TOY are also to play a special UK Christmas show at the request of Mr John Kennedy who has invited them to headline the Barfly for XFM X-Posure. Tickets are on sale over here, with support once again from Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs.
You could say we’re on a roll here at Heavenly… after a brilliant year releasing debut albums by Stealing Sheep and TOY, earlier this month we introduced you to Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs and their debut single ‘I Watch You’.
The former two received critical acclaim across the board, while the latter is currently causing a stir both with fans and in the press (NME: “They make rip-roaring proto-punk like it’s 1973”).
However we’re not taking a back seat just yet because we’ve still got more tricks up our proverbial sleeve… Before the year is out, we’ve got one more new group for you and we are hoping that you’ll be up for giving them the support you’ve given to the rest of our artists.
Yes, it is our absolute pleasure to reveal the debut single from the hotly-tipped Temples whose self-described “neo-psych” has been a firm fixture on the Heavenly Jukebox for the past couple of months.
‘Shelter Song’ will be released by Heavenly Recordings on Monday 12th November 2012, backed with ‘Prisms’.
Both tracks were recorded in early September and produced by Temples in Pyramid Studios, their home studio in Kettering.
The single will be available on 7” and download, with artwork courtesy of Thomas Caslin (thanks Tom!) We’ve got the first look at the video below, go see!
The 7” is available to pre-order now from the Heavenly emporium, as well as selected independent retailers at the links below:

“Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs came to our attention supporting TOY earlier this year. Perfectly channeling mid-70s NYC art punk in the back room of a scuzzed up East End pub, Charlie took the sounds of one blank generation and blasted them out to another. Only took a minute before we were sold.” HEAVENLY RECORDINGS, summer 2012
We are very excited to finally be able to reveal to you all details of the debut single from our newest signings, Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs.
‘I Watch You’ will be released on Heavenly Recordings on Monday 15th October 2012, backed with the B-side ‘Be Nice’. Available on 7” and download, both tracks were recorded in early September and produced by Edwyn Collins and Seb Lewsley at their West Heath Yard studio.
The single will be available to stream shortly but if you can’t possibly wait to hear it, a little birdie tells us it might just be getting a spin on Marc Riley’s 6music show this evening. Listen in here from 7pm.

We are very pleased to announce that Julie Ann Baenziger, better known as Sea of Bees, will be making a return to our shores this November for a headline UK tour. The tour coincedes with the release of the Sacramento native’s next single ‘Gone’ taken from her critically lauded sophomore album ‘Orangefarben’.
‘Gone’ will be released on Heavenly Recordings on November 5th, and, as is coming to be typical of Sea of Bees, is a gorgeous slice of offbeat, emotive guitar pop; as instantly infectious as it is deeply affecting.
The tour — with support from Barbarossa - kicks off in Leeds on November 6th and ends at the breathtaking Union Chapel in London on the 19th.
This will be Sea of Bees’ biggest UK headline tour yet, so don’t miss out!
