Live Review: DIY All Dayer, London

DIY All-Dayer Tufnell Park-Boston Music Room, London- 2nd October 2016 Words & Photos: Chloe Hashemi I had been looking forward to this one for a while. Once DIY magazine announced their line-up of their October All-Dayer, it was evident they had intentionally handpicked a satisfying selection from the ever-developing emerging British indie artist bill. Prides … Continue reading

Just Listen: Prides – Rome

Prides The (ahem) pride of Glasgow, Prides, return with new single Rome and it brings a ever so slightly rockier edge to their usual disco-pop infused sound. Fear not though if that’s what you’ve always loved about them, that feel is still very much still the thread that keeps the track stitched together. I found … Continue reading

Festival Review: Leeds 2015

LEEDS 2015 28th-30th August 2015 Words and Photos: Elena Katrina Leeds has always been a firm must in our festival diary, it’s one of our favourites.

Live Review: Prides – London

Prides London, Heaven 12th February 2015 Words: Stuart Evans So, underneath the arches of Charing Cross station is the place where Glaswegian three piece electro indie dance smashers Prides played their biggest headline show to date.

Just Watch: Prides – Higher Love

Prides Watch the lyric video for Higher Lover here: This band are absolutely one of our favourites of last year and they’ve stomped straight into 2015 with another perfect slice of 80s feeling electro indie pop. Feel so good to listen to. Can they do any wrong? Seems not, to me anyway.

Jack Garratt Listen to the Prides remix of Jack Garratt’s The Love You’re Given here: It’s not often I post remixes any more, just because mostly I think they’re crap and I’m cynical.

Remix: Magic Man – Texas (Prides Remix)

Magic Man Listen to Texas (Prides Remix) here: It’s been an age since there’s been a remix that actually did any justice to the original track and this is on the money. Prides give Magic Man’s track Texas an edgy electronic feel that doesn’t make the lyrics feel like they’ve been dragged backwards through a … Continue reading
