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.

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.

Bryde Words: Elena Katrina The beginning of Bryde’s new track, Less, brings me to picture a dark dark scene; looming trees, angry branches twisted and turning into each other.
