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 Watch: The Murder Capital – Green & Blue

The Murder Capital – Green & Blue Words: Georgia-Mae Blackman The Murder Capital hail from Ireland’s capital, and whilst they aren’t from South London, they do spark the post-punk south of the river energy that radiates from them.

Just Listen: The Amazons – Doubt It

Just Listen: The Amazons – Doubt It Words by Gary Lambert Following on from the step up that was Mother, The Amazons have done it again with a slice of anthemic grunge which seems to have been cut straight out of the Reading Festival main stage.

Just Listen: Cassia – Replica

Cassia – Replica Words by Gary Lambert Well it seems that with the release of ‘Replica’, we have now reached the point where a band from northern England can drop a track that sounds like debut album era Vampire Weekend covering Musical Youth’s classic ‘Pass The Dutchie’.
