Just Listen: Frills – We Can Be Friends

Frills Words: Elena Katrina A Soundcloud Stumble is going to become my first review of 2018 and I’m thrilled that it is – because I love a good “SS”.  Brooklyn’s Frills have a touch of the Vampire Weekend’s about them and I’ll be honest  it was that light and bouncy feel that grabbed me. The … Continue reading

Live Review: Otherkin – Brighton

Otherkin Hope & Ruin, Brighton, 29th October 2017 Words: Lewis Cockle Photos: Chloe Hashemi One might say that Brighton’s Hope & Ruin was a slightly odd choice for a band that could quite easily pack out a larger venue, as Otherkin have been doing whilst on tour for their debut album OK. However, as a … Continue reading

Live Review: Wolf Alice – Brighton

Wolf Alice Brighton Dome, November 2017 Words & Photos: Chloe Hashemi There is always something particularly special about seeing a band just after a major album release.

Just Watch: Tom Grennan – I Might

Tom Grennan Words: Elena Katrina Tom Grennan brings us another hint as to what his debut album, Lighting Matches, is going to be like with new single I Might.

Marsicans Words: Elena Katrina Sometimes there are no words, sometimes there is only laughter and smiles and that’s the case with the new video for Throw Ourselves In by one of our faves… Marsicans!

Just Listen: Oya Paya – Put My Record On

Oya Paya Words: Elena Katrina Oya Paya have been on our radar for a while but their latest single Put My Record On is the one that’s really done it for us and we’ve caught the OP bug! Sultry and yet punchy vocals are a strong feature and I love the use of bird song … Continue reading

Just Listen: Cavalry – Black

Cavalry Words: Elena Katrina Cavalry return with their second brand new track of 2017 and Black delivers on everything I’ve come to expect from this band, and more.

Live Review: Lucy Rose – Brighton

Lucy Rose The Old Market, Brighton, 4th November 2017 Words & Photos: Chloe Hashemi I’ve always liked Lucy Rose.

Just Watch: The Wild Things – Loaded Gun

The Wild Things Words: Elena Katrina The Wild Things are coming for you and they’re latest track Loaded Gun is loaded with with 60s vibes and a hell of an infectious melody.

Just Listen: Cape Cub – Searchlight

Cape Cub Words: Elena Katrina Cape Cub has a wonderful way with words, something he just doesn’t ever seem to fall short on. What he also has, in new track Searchlight, is something quite dark and haunting in his vocal. This track feels more laid bare than some of his other singles such as All … Continue reading

Luna Bay Words: Luke Pettican Since the release of their first track Colours in 2016, Luna Bay have gone from strength to strength.
