Just Listen: Dead Nature: In My Heart

Dead Nature: In My Heart Words: Elena Katrina  There’s something kinda New York Punk scene about the start of Dead Nature’s debut offering, In My Mind. This is the new project by musical superhero Tarek Musa (he of Spring King fame). The track very quickly takes a turn into a psychedelic Polyphonic Spree-like vocal layering … Continue reading

Just Listen: Skinny Living – Let Go

Skinny Living – Let Go Words: Nick Bewes Apparently we need to save guitar music from extinction! That’s what some have been saying.

Like this fine new single from Wakefield’s Skinny Living. … Continue reading

Swimming Tapes – Keep Her Closer Words: Lauren Mellor With summer on its way, it’s great finding some proper seasonal indie tunes and that’s exactly what Swimming Tapes’ Keep Her Closer provides.

Just Listen: LIFE – Moral Fibre

LIFE – Moral Fibre Words: Gary Lambert Do you have asthma? If so, before you listen to Moral Fibre grab your inhaler and have a big blast on it.

JUST LISTEN: The Modern Strangers – Magic Hour

The Modern Strangers – Modern Hour Words: Amy Butcher Now I have to admit before reviewing this song that I had never properly listened to The Modern Strangers and it’s safe to say they’ve got me hooked. Magic Hour takes you on an electronic, disco-pop journey and it’s a magic 3 minutes (see what I did … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: The Golden Dregs – Nobody Ever Got Rich (By Making People Sad)

The Golden Dregs – Nobody Ever Got Rich (By Making People Sad) Words: Sammy Sadler I have to start this review by summing this track up in just one word – and that word is WOW.

JUST LISTEN: Callum Pitt – Here If You Need

Callum Pitt – Here If You Need Words: Sammy Sadler I’ve been keeping my eye on Callum Pitt since I fell in love with his last single Forgotten Kids so I was really excited to hear he was releasing a new single so soon after.

Just Listen: The Van Ts – Control

The Van Ts – Control Words: Elena katrina The Van Ts have a special blend of guitar music – sonically they flirt with punk, grunge, rock but with melodies and harmonies that wouldn’t go amiss on some of the best indie pop out there.

JUST LISTEN: Ten Eighty Trees – Casual Habits

Ten Eighty Trees – Casual Habits Words: Sammy Sadler It’s no secret that I love Ten Eighty Trees and I’ve adored their anthemic rock tunes since I first listened to them back in 2018.

Just Listen: Charity Shop Pop – Dreaming (It’s A Nightmare)

Charity Shop Pop – Dreaming (It’s A Nightmare) Words: Chloe Hyde Upbeat, catchy, hopeful yet melancholic really are the words to describe Charity Shop Pop’s newest single Dreaming (It’s A Nightmare).
