Just Listen: The Dunts – Birds & The Beez

Birds & The Beez Words Gary Feeney   There have been so many excellent new releases from Glaswegian bands over the last few weeks that it’s been hard to keep up, but standing tall amongst them is The Dunts’ latest single, Birds and the Beez. Describing their sound as “council punk”, the band have built … Continue reading

Just Listen: Voodoos – Turn Me Into Juice

Natalie Words: Gary Feeney It’s not every band that emerges in to the world as a fully-formed hit machine, but on the evidence to date, that’s exactly what Voodoos have done – despite only around 8 months having passed since they unleashed the fantastic Natalie, as their debut single, the band have built an ever-burgeoning following … Continue reading

Just Listen: Rosie Carney – Bare

Rosie Carney Words: Elena Katrina  Singer-songwriter Rosie Carney returns with her new single Bare and it’s a song that in many forms is beautifully befitting of its title. There’s such a closeness in the vocal, something, which, in this kind of track I love to hear. Lyrically masterful, melodically enchanting and yet tender thanks to the … Continue reading

Just Listen: PLYA – Feast My Eye

PLAYA Words: Nick Bewes PLYA are one of my favourite new bands and they are back with their latest and at least to my ears, best single so far. Feast My Eye starts off with a semi-spoken word intro, sounding a little similar to when Taylor Swift told us the old Taylor couldn’t come to … Continue reading

Just Watch: Tom Grennan – I Might

Tom Grennan Words: Elena Katrina Tom Grennan brings us another hint as to what his debut album, Lighting Matches, is going to be like with new single I Might. Just when I was starting to feel almost desperate to hear something else from him, he delivers… Merry Christmas indeed. Tom Grennan was my most listened … Continue reading

Just Listen: Cavalry – Black

Cavalry Words: Elena Katrina Cavalry return with their second brand new track of 2017 and Black delivers on everything I’ve come to expect from this band, and more. It’s highly emotional, to the point where I get goosebumps listening to it. I’ve known singer Alan for 10 years and followed his various musical endeavours and … Continue reading

Just Listen: Plaza – Speak It

Plaza Words: Gary Feeney Following a busy summer of support slots and festivals appearances including acclaimed sets at Reading & Leeds, PLAZA have just released their latest single, Speak It, and it’s yet another epic from the Hartlepool quartet. Featuring a thunderous intro, the song gives way to a haunting guitar line which reverberates under … Continue reading

Just Listen: Banfi – June

Banfi Words: Elena Katrina Banfi’s lead vocalist Joe has a really interesting tone to his vocal, it’s unlike almost anything I’ve heard before. Here in their latest single June it’s perfectly encased in a pulsating soundscape that builds and builds to their, fast becoming, signature swirl. Banfi are one of my favourite acts in 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: 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

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: Pins – All Hail

Pins Words: Gary Lambert The latest release, All Hail, from Manchester’s wonderful PINS is a piece of dreampop punk which showcases the vocal quality available to this group like never before. Whilst still keeping a hint of the rhythmic motif from Aggrophobe which suggested an ancient crowd worshipping, All Hail is more celebratory in tone … Continue reading
