Live Review: Ten Tonnes – London

Ten Tonnes/h2> Electric Brixton, London, 10th October 2019>/h5> Words: Claire Hingley Well, I`ve seen Ten Tonnes so many times, that I’ve actually lost count.

Just Listen: The Pale White – Swim For Your Life

The Pale White – Swim For Your Life Words: Ashleigh O’Neill  The Pale White are back with their new single ‘Swim For Your Life’. Sticking to their indie, rock vibe, but straying away from the heaviness of their later releases, they have injected a whole load of energy and enthusiasm into this single. It still … Continue reading

Live Review: The Big Moon – London

The Big Moon The Lexington, London, October 17th 2019 Words & Photos: Amy Buther Ever since I saw The Big Moon at Standon Calling festival earlier this year I have been obsessed with this four-piece and their music.

Just Listen: Electric Enemy – Save Me

Electric Enemy – Save Me Words: Amy Butcher Opening with melancholic guitar melodies and singer Jim’s impressive vocals, Electric Enemy have returned with another fantastic single following debut ‘Climb’. What I like about the four-piece is how they bring together addictive, finessed melodies with impactful lyrics and ‘Save Me’ is a prime example. Speaking on … Continue reading

Just Listen: Corella – Come Around

Corella – Come Around Words: Amy Butcher   After seeing Corella support Larkin’s at Colours Hoxton , I’ve been hooked on their serene, jangly guitar sound. ‘Come Around’ is a refreshing track from start to finish, and is a somewhat familiar yet new sound from the 4 piece.  Opening with fast, repetitive drum beats and … Continue reading

Just Listen: October Drift – Forever Whatever

October Drift – Forever Whatever Words: Amy Butcher  After falling in love with their last single ‘Losing My Touch’, you can imagine my excitement when October Drift unveiled they were releasing their debut album AND the title track of the album ‘Forever Whatever’.

Just Listen: FEET – Dog Walking

FEET – Dog Walking Words: Amy Butcher The first time I heard this track, ironically enough, I was walking. ‘Dog Walking’ from FEET is a fantastically interesting song about walking your dogs. The melancholic repetitive ‘ooohs’ and jangly guitar melodies put you in a euphoric daze that’s anything but soporific.   I’m still new to FEET, … Continue reading

Just Listen: The Ninth Wave – Human Behaviour

The Ninth Wave – Human Behaviour Words: Elena Katrina The Ninth Wave have found something a little warmer in the latest track Human Behaviour. Don’t get me wrong there’s still the dramatic despair emanating from the vocal of lead singer Haydn. The band have kept their gothic vibe soundscape with swirls of guitar that caress. … Continue reading

Just Listen: The Lottery Winners – Hawaii

The Lottery Winners – Hawaii Words: Elena Katrina This isn’t at all what I remember from when I saw The Lottery Winners play live back in May this year. To be fair that’s maybe because what I remember the most was their lead singer being unsure if he was a stand-up comedian or lead singer … Continue reading

Just Watch: Stereo Honey – You Are A Monster

Stereo Honey – You Are A Monster Words: Elena Katrina    Oh, Stereo Honey you make my ears so damn happy. You Are A Monster‘s opening moments are like something you’d hear in the ominous score of a thriller movie. It sets the scene perfectly for this tensely phrased track. It’s not long until we’re … Continue reading

Just Listen: SuperGlu – Forever Endeavour

SuperGlu – Forever Endeavour Words: Elena Katrina  Listening to the new SuperGlu track I’m immediately taken back to the excitement I felt when I first heard them, and when I first saw them. It’s a while ago now and I’ve not heard a whole lot of them for what feels like an age (YEARS). Here … Continue reading
