Track Premiere: Fond Of Rudy – OMG

Fond Of Rudy Words: Elena Katrina Our good friends Fond Of Rudy came to play a live show recently for us and it took them a solid 9 hours to get to where they needed to be from their hometown of Brighton so of course they could have just run away from us screaming, but … Continue reading

Just Listen: All We Are – Burn It All Out

All We Are Words: Gary Feeney The three members of All We Are hail from Brazil, Ireland and Norway before moving to Liverpool where they met and formed their band, so it seems fitting that having travelled sizeable distances to begin their musical career, they’ve also taken a significant musical journey between releasing their self-titled … Continue reading

Just Listen: White – One Night Stand Forever

White Words: Gary Feeney With their long-awaited debut album One Night Stand Forever due next month, WHITE have released the eponymous track as their latest single and it is, in the parlance of today’s youth, an absolute banger. A feature of the band’s live set for some time now, One Night Stand Forever is a … Continue reading

Just Listen: Meadowlark – Postcards

Meadowlark Words: Leander Hobbs The raspy yet gentle-sweet vocals of Kate McGill are joined by the light tinkling of piano keys like summer rain from my stereo and I am washed in a hazy and heady musical perfume. This is Postcards, the first single from Bristol based Meadowlark’s anticipated debut album of the same name, … Continue reading

Just Listen: Plaza – Deep In My Head

Plaza Words: Gary Feeney When I wrote about Plaza’s single Origami for Popped, I noted the impressive complexity and musical depth on show, and that it was a single which was certain to have you going back for more from the band. Fast forward a month or so, then, and both of those observations ring … Continue reading

Just Listen: Bruno Major – Second Time

Bruno Major Words: Nick Bewes Hey Bruno! No not you Mr Mars, there’s a new Bruno on the block. His name is Bruno Major. He is someone I have been keeping an ear out for since the turn of the year when I  heard his track The First Thing You See and was impressed. Now … Continue reading

Just Listen: Winter’s Island – Fire

Winter’s Island Words: Nick Bewes One of the best things about being a music fan is discovering new music and bands. Since getting the new track from London trio Winters Island have become one of my favourites. The new track Fire is like Coldplay, Hurts and Fenech Solar have got together and produced a track … Continue reading

Just Listen: Panda Cult – First Time

Panda Cult Words: Elena Katrina  When you hear the perfect indie pop song you know it. Panda Cult have just that with their debut single First Time. Infectious melodies with every twist and turn. Lyrics which are easy to latch on to and join in with even after just the first listen. For a first … Continue reading

Just Watch: Tear – Begging

Tear Words: Julia Grantham I couldn’t resist the opportunity to review this latest track from Tear when I had the chance. Having discovered them in the autumn of 2015 via Tim Burgess on twitter-they’re signed to his label-I reviewed an earlier song of theirs and this current one Begging is just as deliciously dark and … Continue reading

EP Review: Peaness – Are You Sure

Are You Sure Released 5th May 2017 Words: Leander Hobbs Described as infectious and sugar-coated indie-pop Peaness (think about it!) new EP, Are You Sure? released on 5th May 2017 via Alcopop! Records, is saccharine sunshine at its best.  The Chester-based, all-girl trio has created an upbeat and infuriatingly catchy collection of songs with killer … Continue reading

Just Watch: Maximo Park – Get High (No I Don’t)

Maximo Park Words: Nick Bewes I’ve been playing Maximo Park’s music on the radio for over a decade and the new material is as good as anything they have done in that time. The second single from new album Risk to Exist is called Get High (No I Don’t). The press release says the new … Continue reading

Just Listen: Native Kings – Afraid To Love You

Native Kings Words: Nick Bewes Continuing the great tradition of rock’s trios, Liverpool’s Native Kings produce a big noise  even though there’s only three of them. Think more Muse and Ash than Genesis though! The band have released a new single Afraid To Love You and it’s a cracker, right from the opening riff to … Continue reading
