Just Watch: Rews -Shine

Rews Words: Elena Katrina I’m a big fan of duos, especially those who, like Rews (and The Pearl Harts), who manage to make a sound much bigger than their parts. Shine is the latest offering from Rews and it hammers itself into your subconsciousness – with those riffs playing on a loop long after the … Continue reading

Just Listen: Estrons – Glasgow Kisses

Estrons Words: Nick Jacques The Welsh rock band of the moment Estrons are back and yet again, they want to take your pulse up a few beats. They conjure that up here in impressive fashion. Following on from their sucker-punch of a single Strobe Lights comes the more abrasive sound of Glasgow Kisses. The riffs … Continue reading

Just Watch: Cristobal And The Sea – Steal My Phone

Cristobal And The Sea Words: Elena Katrina Get involved and jump aboard – Cristobal and The Sea are one of my favourite producers of kooky vibes and new single Steal My Phone does not disappoint! They come along ever so often and sprinkle chunks of happiness all over me with their abundance of joyous sounds. … Continue reading

Just Listen: Amber Run – Alaska

Amber Run Words: Elena Katrina Amber Run return with their latest single Alaska released on September 22nd. The band are heading out on an autumn tour next month and this single gives you some idea of just how stripped back their sound can go – though I’m not anticipating their set will feature too much … Continue reading

Just Watch: The Big Moon – Pull The Other One

The Big Moon Words: Elena Katrina It goes without saying that The Big Moon’s Pull The Other One is no new tune to us, it is, however, one of my faves. Sultry and slow in the majority of it’s vocal delivery with an abundance of teasing harmonies. The video though is another glimpse into the … Continue reading

Just Listen: Marsicans – Too Good

Marsicans Words: Elena Katrina I’ve been asking myself questions…. like where has all the time gone in which I should have shared this song! I might be stealing half the lyrics for this review but Marsicans have got me caught in a dream with their new single Too Good. It really is too good as … Continue reading

Just Watch: John Joseph Brill – A Place To Drown

John Joseph Brill Words: Elena Katrina The sounds of John Joseph Brill are no new noise to me, they’re rather a thing of comfort,  despite,  more often than not, the lyrical content is less comforting. Here JJB is joined with a female vocalist whose tone and notes are in total contrast to Brill’s give A … Continue reading

Live Review: Methyl Ethyl – London

Methyl Ethyl The Shacklewell Arms, 15/08/2017 Words: Nick Jacques I strolled into the Shacklewell Arms with about 15 minutes to go before Methyl Ethyl were to go on stage. I had never set foot in this part of town before. I was intrigued to know what I might find lurking amongst these 4 murky music-soaked … Continue reading

Just Watch: Bloxx – Curtains

Bloxx Words: Elena Katrina I admit, I never thought that I would fall in love with a song named after a household item such as Curtains, but Bloxx have done it. First listen I was in, fully in. Yes, I have made a full on commitment to Curtains and possibly a borderline blog crush is … Continue reading

EP Review: Blaenavon – Prague 99

Prague 99 Released 15th August 2017 Words: Charlotte Minett After the release of their highly acclaimed debut album That’s Your Lot, there was no messing around for Hampshire’s trio, Blaenavon. This August marks five month since releasing the album and on the 15th of the month, the band’s fourth EP, Prague’99, was released. The young … Continue reading

Just Listen: Pale Waves – Television Romance

Pale Waves Words: Elena Katrina  It’s interesting to see how far Pale Waves have come over the last 12 months or so – their brand new single Television Romance sounds as if they’ve been having out with The 1975, which is no bad thing but their live performances have always been more grungy than poppy. … Continue reading

Just Watch: White Fever – Sands

White Fever Words: Elena Katrina Let White Fever slowly but surely weave their magic upon you with their new track Sands. It’s captivating in its delivery; with hypnotising layers of vocals and it’s atmospheric, drawn out soundtrack. There’s something a little eerie about the whole affair but I can’t keep myself from listening, over and … Continue reading

Just Listen: Henry Jamison – Sunlit Juice

Henry Jamison Words: Elena Katrina  When I leave it to the team to write all the posts (because I’m busy doing the general admin and organising which takes up way too much time) then songs like this get missed because it’s not a slap in the face nor is it by a buzz band. Henry … Continue reading

Just Listen: Motherhood – Save Me

Motherhood Words: Elena Katrina Motherhood are a band who aren’t looking to hide their pop sensibilities behind any kind of essence of cool, edgy, whateverness…. and that’s because they don’t have to. They ooze cool all over the shop with their latest single Save Me. Upbeat melodies and plastered with electronic 80s vibes that hop skip … Continue reading

Just Listen: SeaWitches – Absolve

SeaWitches – Absolve Words: Elena Katrina Liverpool’s  SeaWitches return with an inspired new track in Absolved. Vocals and music that moves in sultry waves and ripples throughout. There is also some really interesting guitar and bass work, which, for me, is tinged with an rich intercontinental flavour. Absolved is probably my favourite ever of theirs. … Continue reading
