Unsigned Hype: Forever August

A new regular feature here at OTU, in which we’ll be introducing and previewing any upcoming, unsigned acts whom we believe have the talent/potential to go far in the music industry.

We’ll have interviews, music and hopefully videos from all acts, which will definitely give you the full heads-up on acts we’re tipping for big things. From indie to hip-hop, there are no barriers on the style and genre with a view to giving everything and everyone a chance, in true OTU style.

The first act I’m bringing you is Forever August, a four piece rock/indie/alternative group from Basingstoke. As luck would have it (or clever planning by yours truly), today they release their first official video, Who Said It Was Over, which you can (and should) go out and purchase from iTunes today. Set in what seems to be a school sports hall, the guys treat us to some tidy visuals that focus mainly on the band, which in turn keeps the emphasis on the superb track itself.

To get to know the band a little more and to treat yourself to a free track, carry on reading after the jump.
