Just Listen: Wyldest – Headrush

Wyldest – Headrush Words: Rachel Allen Being a cold, windy, autumnal evening when apparently storm ‘Callum’ (who thinks up these names?!) has come to play, what better a soundtrack than the eerie, ambient soundscapes of London trio Wyldest’s latest track ‘Headrush.’ Taken off their debut album ‘Dream Chaos’, ‘Headrush’ speaks through its almost hypnotically driving … Continue reading

Just Watch: Bloxx – Monday

Bloxx – Monday Words: Daniel Burton After every song Bloxx have released, despite my love and massive backing of the Uxbridge four-piece, I am always sceptical as to whether they can pull another hit out of the bag after setting the bar so high with prior songs. All of their releases so far have had … Continue reading

Just Listen: Sundara Karma – Illusions

Sundara Karma – Illusions Words: Elena Katrina  “Wow – who is this!”  – Actual words from my mouth upon my first listen of Sundara Karma’s latest new track, Illusion.

Just Listen: Lucia – Summertime

Lucia – Summertime Words: Gary Feeney It’s not exactly a secret that we’ve been huge fans of LUCIA for a long time.

JUST WATCH: Sisteray – Wannabee

Sisteray – Wannabee Words: Gary Lambert The latest release from London’s Sisteray is a controlled piece of punk rock which takes the vigour and power of the four-piece, but harnesses the kinetic energy in order to create a track which pulsates and electrifies without losing the tune within the fuzz and scuzz you would usually … Continue reading

EP REVIEW: Strange Cages – Silver Queen

Strange Cages Words: Nicholas Jacques This 4-piece from Brighton dish out a range of sounds that are somehow both entrancing and uncompromising at the same time. This is no more apparent than on the last track ‘The Leeches, The Fakers’ where the climax of the song is so unnerving that it has a rather pungent … Continue reading

Popped Round-up #001

Popped Round-up #001 September 2018 Words: Daniel Burton and Josh Driver   LADY Bird – Boot Fillers  After listening to a few of Lady Bird’s songs, I couldn’t help but think ‘The Streets meets Slaves’.

LIVE REVIEW: Maximo Park – Gateshead

Maximo Park Sage Gateshead, 21st September 2018 Words: Samantha Sadler Photos: Thomas Jackson, Tynesight Photographic Services I’ve found that as I get older (yes I am approaching the wrong side of 20) I’m appreciating music much more than I ever really did. Now that’s not to say I’m not still a total fangirl at heart, but … Continue reading

Spring King Newcastle, 20th September 2018 Words: Samantha Sadler It’s so amazing to watch a band grow from support act to show headliners and I feel like I’ve pretty much been on this journey with Spring King. I first caught the guys supporting Spector back in 2015, and it is pretty awesome that I’m now … Continue reading

Black Honey Released 21st September 2018 Words: Gary Lambert Christmas Day happens once every year so you don’t have that long to wait.  The first time I saw Black Honey perform live, it was three years ago.

JUST LISTEN: Estrons – Body

Estrons – Body Words: Nicholas Jacques Recent exposure on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 live show and support slots with the notorious Pussy Riot and the fab Garbage have seen Estrons’ profile considerably grow in stature. That is supported with is a final taster before they finally unleash their eagerly anticipated debut album ‘You say I’m … Continue reading
