NEW MUSIC THIS MONTH: June 2021

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

It’s been a fairly quiet month, nothing much going on…well apart from the Euros, Wimbledon starting, and Ed Sheeran has returned! Here’s the highlights from our Head of Music, Nick Bewes, of some of the tracks added to our playlists over the last month.

 

There’s obviously only one song to start with and it’s the comeback single from Ed Sheeran, ‘Bad Habits’. It’s the first taste of what will become his new album which he is currently recording. The video is a low-key affair!

We’ve been fans of the superb Joy Crookes for a while, and she doesn’t disappoint with the latest track, ‘Feet Don’t Fail Me Now’, which she wrote in light of the political events of last year. It’s written from the perspective of someone who finds it easier to remain complicit out of fear of speaking up, and what those consequences might be. A very powerful track.

Lorde has been quiet for a while, her last album was released in 2017, but she returned this month with ‘Solar Power’, the title track of her new album which is due in August. The project was inspired by the importance of taking care of the environment and preserving the world.

Aziya is likely to be a new name to most people, but not for long. She’s only released 3 singles, ‘Blood’ being the latest, and already British Vogue have called her “an emerging rockstar for Generation Z,”. We think she is great.

And finally, Calvin Harris teamed up with man of the moment, Tom Grennan for a new single called ‘By Your Side’. The video is, well, colourful! Tom loved filming it apparently. Sunglasses at the ready!

And there you have it for another month. Keep up to date with our playlist additions by following us on Twitter @kvhstudiosmusic.

Bring award-winning audio advertising into your in-store environment

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

In-store radio is extremely powerful in increasing dwell time and driving sales. It’s also an effective way of informing customers to enhance their overall experience. When boosting your background music by adding content into the mix, you can align the in-store audio to your overall marketing strategy to reinforce external messaging and internal POS. Plus, eliminate any competitor advertising that could be heard through local or national radio.

Your customer aren’t just shoppers, they’re a captive audience. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to talk directly to them whilst you have their attention. It’s your chance to direct them to a part of the store they may not have intended to visit, upsell on certain product ranges, or inform them of services available. Advertising products at the point of purchase increases impulse spend, so shout about those offers and highlight those deals you have available on your shelves.

Our award-winning, in-house creative team of experienced radio producers, presenters and creative writers know what works when it comes to developing engaging content, audio personality and advertisements for in-store. With access to over 10,000 professional voiceover artists and strong relationships developed over their many years in the industry, the KVH Studios production team are dedicated to making sure all your in-store content meets your objectives and sounds the best it possibly can through meticulous selection for your brand.

All content is created, produced, and broadcast under one roof at KVH Studios in our purpose-built, state-of-the-art production studios. We manage the whole process from briefing through to scheduling with nothing outsourced. So you can ensure your advertising is on-brief, on-time and on-budget.

Give us a call or email info@kvhstudios.com today to find out more about adding in-store audio advertising into your store.
