Estrons – You Say I’m Too Much, I Say You’re Not Enough Words: Nicholas Jacques  This is the long awaited debut album from Welsh trio Estrons.

Just Listen: Vanity Fairy – He Can Be Your Lady

Just Listen: Vanity Fairy – He Can Be Your Lady Words: Elena Katrina Can’t I just write: “It’s awesome, go and listen to it?” – no, you expect more of me? oh, ok then… Well this has movie soundtrack all over it, some stylish, maybe something Drive-esque:sharp, clean, edgy and cool as hell and a … Continue reading

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. First appearing on our pages back almost two years ago to the day (at the time of writing) with the fuzzy brilliance of Best Boy, the Glaswegian outfit band have gone from strength … Continue reading

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

LIVE REVIEW: Spring King – Newcastle

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

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

Just Listen: Jack Vallier – Anyway

Jack Vallier – Anyway Words: Nick Bewes Jack Vallier is a new name to me, but is certainly a name I will keep an eye for in the future on the strength of his new single, Anyway. It’s the sort of song that if it was sung by a former member of One Direction, would … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: Egyptians – Hollywood

Egyptians – Hollywood Words: Samantha Sadler  I’ve been hanging onto this track from Egyptians for a while before today’s release date and I have to admit, I’ve been listening to it A LOT. Although Egyptians are the new kids on the London indie music scene, you would be mistaken for thinking they’d been around for … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: Soccer Mommy – I’m On Fire

Soccer Mommy – I’m On Fire Words: Rob Connor  Let me start this by stating outright, I have a holy triumvirate of artists that I deem untouchable. One is the Rolling Stones, one is Ryan Adams and the third is The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen. So it is with some trepidation I approach 21-year-old singer- … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: FEVA – Uneasy

FEVA – Uneasy Words: Samantha Sadler It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of North East four-piece FEVA and I’m buzzing that their latest track ‘Uneasy’ is an absolute banger. Opening with psychedelic swirling loops reminiscent to The Horrors and The Oh Sees, it’s not long before explosive drumming and crashing cymbals enter the … Continue reading

Live Review: Hippo Campus – London

Hippo Campus London, 23rd August 2018 Words & Photos: Luke Pettican  As soon as you walked into Omeara’s delightfully styled main room, you could sense the raging excitement in the air.
