Just Listen: Rozi Plain – Symmetrical

Rozi Plain – Symmetrical Words: Nicholas Jacques  This is a lovely taster from Rozi Plain’s upcoming album ‘What a Boost’. Distinctive guitar tones hover and bounce off a rhythmic drum beat in a languid fashion whilst Rozi’s voice is calm and restrained. There is an alluring pattern with the guitar playing and this enables the … Continue reading

Just Listen: Saint Agnes – Welcome to Silvertown

Saint Agnes – Welcome to Silvertown Words & Photography: Gary Lambert It is in my self-inflated opinion that Saint Agnes are the most exciting, edgy, dirty rock’n’roll band in the UK at this moment in time. And the good news is that the release of the title track of their newly announced debut album (due … Continue reading

Just Listen: Raffer – The Media

Raffer – The Media Words: Daniel Burton RAFFER (aka Callum Rafferty), a DIY artist hailing from the countrysides of Kent, is slowly emerging into the limelight as a huge prospect in the Indie-Pop world.

Just Listen: Hot Dreams – Stronger

Hot Dreams – Stronger Words: Nick Bewes  No messing about, straight to the point on this, the new single from Hot Dreams ‘Stronger‘ is a corker of a track. Debuted by Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, it builds slowly and then explodes with a chorus that will be embed itself in your memory. It’s an important track … Continue reading

We’ve already covered those bands that all the big boys are playing catch up on now. These are some of the bands who have piqued … Continue reading

Just Watch: Far Caspian – Finding My Way Home

Far Caspian – Finding My Way Home Words: Rachel Allen Utterly relaxed and dreamy was the place I was pulled into listening to Far Caspian and their single ‘Finding My Way Home’ from their debut EP ‘Between Days.’ From a hazy state to a triumphant one at the end of the song when the refrain … Continue reading

Just Listen: Calva Louise – Tug of War

Calva Louise – Tug Of War Words: Rachel Allen The gritty pop punk sound of Calva Louise jumped out at me when I heard their new single ‘Tug Of War’ off their debut album ‘Rhinoceros.’ The trio have really been making waves in the punk scene in the last 18 months and the new single … Continue reading

Just Listen: Vanity Fairy – Loverman

Vanity Fairy – Loverman Words: Rachel Allen Prince and The Bee Gees are just some of the artists that spring to mind when first hearing the falsetto notes and echos of Vanity Fair’s Daisy Capri. She brings a unique and startlingly strange fascination to her vocal in her chilled out, catchy electro-pop track ‘Loverman.’ She … Continue reading

Just Listen: Clean Cut Kid – Deafening

Clean Cut Kid – Deafening Words: Megan Berridge  Clean Cut Kid could be poster boys for rock ‘n’ roll — the long hair and beards are starting to make more sense.  Their pre-tour single, ‘Deafening’, kicks ass with razor-edge fuzz and electric attitude. I choked on my breath when Mike Halls sings the word ‘bullshit’. I … Continue reading

Just Listen: Psychedelic Porn Crumpets – My Friend’s A Liquid

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets – My Friend’s A Liquid Words: Nick Bewes Like so many artists, I first heard the brilliant Psychedelic Porn Crumpets on BBC Radio 6 Music, being played by Tom Ravenscroft. At twenty to six in the evening. Since that moment in the car, I’ve invested in their two albums, ‘High Visceral Part … Continue reading

Just Listen: GURU – Customer Helpline

GURU – Customer Helpline Words: Megan Berridge From its title, you might expect ‘Customer Helpline’ to be something of a cyber-age track — an ornament decorated with stale, robotic lyrics and tinselled with soulless beeps and chimes. But it’s not. I was drinking a lukewarm cuppa-instant-joe and listening to Simon and Garfunkel on a damp … Continue reading

Just Listen: Green Gardens – Change The Light

Green Gardens – Change The Light Words: Georgia-Mae Blackman What’s the danger of listening to new, interesting music? There’s no danger at all. Leeds art-pop band, Green Gardens are all sorts of fascinating, but beautiful. Newly released and highly anticipated single ‘Change The Lights’ is laced with funky riffs and breathtaking energy. The vocal ranges … Continue reading

Just Watch: Fil Bo Riva – Go Rilla

Fil Bo Riva – Go Rilla Words: Rob Connor  I have no idea what I just watched, but I know I instantly love it! The video for Fil Bo Riva’s latest offering, Go Rilla,  for his eagerly awaited debut album is as bonkers as it is brilliant. Drawing its influences heavily from his love of … Continue reading
