Based on the internationally acclaimed Japanese Manga series of the same name, written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow, Ghost in the Shell tells the story of the fictional counter-cyberterrorist organization Public Security Section 9, led by protagonist Major Motoko Kusanagi in mid-21st Century Japan.

Bringing the film to life, the Soho gallery space has been transformed into a completely immersive and interactive environment using the very latest modern technology. From a 360° holographic Geisha mask and interactive windows to exclusive memorabilia from the film, guests from the world of film and music were transported to a fictional cyber world with the help of London trio, Sälen who hit the decks with a mixture of electro and trip hop beats to set the futuristic tone and keep guests dancing into the night.

Andrew Combs exclusive UK track premiere: ‘Rose Colored Blues’

Texan via Nashville, indie Americana troubadour Andrew Combs exclusively drops his new track ‘Rose Colored Blues’ today in the UK via Fault Magazine. 
 
The freewheeling tune taken from Andrew’s forthcoming and critically acclaimed ‘Canyons Of My Mind’ is reminiscent of classic US songwriters such as Harry Nilsson and Glen Campbell and sees Andrews explore the romanticised view of life on the road.
 

“It’s a romanticized version of being on the road,” Combs says of the song. “I wanted it to be lush, and to feel like you’re driving. The concept is something that’s always been very interesting to me: the whole idea of someone relishing their blues.”

His forthcoming ‘Canyons Of My Mind’ co-produced by Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle, Caitlin Rose) & Jordan Lehning (Rodney Crowell, Caitlin Rose) was recorded at Battle Tapes Studio in East Nashville, TN and has already garnered critical support across the pond from NPR, Rolling Stone, American Songwriter and Garden & Gun with fans in the UK from Line Of Best Fit to Bob Harris!  
Andrew tours the UK in May with a hotly anticipated show at London’s Borderline on 9 May. 
 
Andrew Combs ‘Rose Colored Blues’ will be released tomorrow. Album ‘Canyons Of My Mind’ is released on Loose on 7 April. Tour Dates below:
April 30 and May 1 – Kilkenny Roots Festival
May 2 – Manchester Night & Day
May 3 – Oxford Bullingdon
