London has arguably the best music scene around, with thousands of talented musicians emerging every day, most of which are unsigned acts waiting for their big break.
Unsigned Friday brings you the very best unsigned music artists from around the capital, as well as giving these acts a platform to promote their music.
This week, getwestlondon's Emily Chudy caught up with rock 'n' roll busker band Ogre Melodies.
The band began life on the streets, as a way to make people hear their music. Originally a touring busking band, Ogre Melodies have now developed a fast-paced electric set ideal for large venues.
The band's guitarist, Dominic, said: "The song always comes first. We never really focused on an exact sound or genre, it all just happened naturally, and I suppose the folk/rock 'n' roll label fits us still, for now...
"Ogre Melodies has always been a very active band, we believe completely that if you want to do something, you get it done, you don't wait on daydreams."
The band are looking to book more shows this year after they perform a slot at Just So festival. They have plans to play various destinations across the UK and abroad, whether in a venue, or back to their busking roots on the street.
Dominic said: "I remember Harrison saying: 'F**k it, we're better than that t**ser playing Ed Sheeran covers outside HMV', so we nicked his spot. Busking was a niche that we fitted into and loved it.
"We have met so many amazing, talented and beautiful people in the last couple of years from all around the world, simply because we put ourselves out there, on the street."
Recently their fan-base has been growing and growing, with the band now filling out larger venues and moving on to a more electric sound.
"We've spent a large part of this year thinking about how we can evolve and grow as a band," Dominic added. "What's emerged is strong: it's loud, still raucous, but with a clarity in the harmonies and guitars that was lacking. We never had a bass before, but Tim picked one up two months ago and literally hasn't put it down.
"I'm really proud of what we've put together as a group on the new set, I can't wait for our next gig, I can't wait to record our EP this summer, I can't wait to busk again."
A music reviewer from FrostClick Music said: "Upbeat melodies, chorus singing and plenty of flair; these boys might not be a household name just yet but they definitely deliver. Their cuts have a genuine warmth and energy emanating from each note and guitar strum. Enjoy!"
