Celebrated Northern festival, Kendal Calling returns for its 2017 programme to the gorgeous scenic surroundings of Lowther Deer Park in The Lake District. Crowned the ‘UK’s Best Small Festival’ by popular live ticketing agent Skiddle, this year’s event surely does live up to the significant hype. Providing entertainment for all ages, the large billing includes […]
Returning two months after debuting the opening chapter of a three-song saga, Barcelona-born artist Fins Ara is now ready to divulge another fragment from his personal collection. The aching piece of ethereal woe has been gifted to Bitter Sweet Symphonies to share in the first play.
Gold Coast collective FAIRCHILD practise a fine balance of tight-roping dynamics on lead album cut, ‘So Long and Thank You’.
It’s no secret that EAT FAST have been a regular in our pages since they launched, now well into the music game, the lo-fi punks step out of the shade to bring us their most action-packed moment to date: ‘Immortal Kombat’.
After succeeding triumphantly as the crowned winners of last month’s #BitterSweetPlaylist, we satisfy our promise and gift you, our readers, an exclusive chat with indie’s finest dream pop bright-sparks, Softer Still. The song which landed them here, ‘Forever Faces’ – is an ’80s facing synth jam of pure purpose and sweeping jangle, and just one of […]
Previewing the first material from their forthcoming body of work, Canterbury’s Tokyo Tea Room gift swirling textures and ethereal tones on ‘Sunset Exit’.
A small collection of intimate shows were announced in April, that would see the Manchester art-pop collective Everything Everything squeeze their five person live set-up into some of the country’s most exciting venues – the hometown show to take place in the marvelled Albert Hall. Arriving on the hottest day of the year, a few […]
London group Junior Empire prime their candidacy as centurions of the all-night rave with the release of their first full body of work. A collection which flaunts eclectic contemporary influences against a brilliant audacity for breaking any and all genre rules, the five-piece effort, thus, is the perfect introduction to this exciting new band.
Sharing rare intimate film footage for the first time, Lostboycrow reveals a bare bones performance of ‘Nobody Knows’ – a track taken off the recently released ‘First Legend’ (one of three collections that will eventually culminate in a whole album) – as part of a series called the “At The Window Sessions”.
With so much great new music coming our way daily, we’ve compiled our favourites into an easily accessible format, aptly titled: #BitterSweetPlaylist. The idea is, once fully consumed, everyone has their shot at voting for their favourite track by means of the poll at the bottom of the page. We’ll tally up the votes and […]
Step into the sunshine with Young Earth’s ‘Worth It’, debuting below. The Irish group moving further forward from last March’s introductory ‘Got A Secret’, summon charging Kooks-esque indie for a gleaming summer pop rampage.
London’s Bat and Ball reveal a vital (if not, the most important) piece from their forthcoming debut full-length with new track, ‘Worth’. The trio challenge and protest body image in this new musical dialogue. Self-worth is almost always hard-won, especially living in a time where outside factors dominate and protrude all who have access to […]
Escapism may seem like a cowardly exit method at times, but it’s true we all need to breakaway every now and then, and it’s fair to say that music is one of those mediums that we turn to. Appropriately so, the coral-washed sounds of Westerman cannot project a more fitting or absorbing ideal. Cleansing to the […]
Leading the way in sunny splendour, ahead of the release of forthcoming extended player ‘Bloodshot’, is Albin Lee Meldau’s blinding tenacity on new cut ‘Persistence’.
Taking form out of various Kent scene bands, Tiger Blanket is more a supergroup (of the local variety) than a simple passion project. The brainchild of Graham Nunn takes cues from Talking Heads and Roxy Music with a modern update of the wonky indie-psych variety that tells of MGMT at their most obscure.
London’s Flyte shift the perception of what it is to be a modern band; their music remains timeless through a love for the sounds of yesteryear and a pureness of natural dynamics. Since launching a collection of homemade videos filmed in a London flat, the four-piece have continued to retain the subtle charm of their […]
Returning once again to the great city of Manchester (on a particularly scorching sun-packed day) was multi-venue spectacular Dot to Dot Festival, and this year was to mean even more for all who attended. The organisers switched up a few fundamentals this year, mainly being the inclusion of new venues like Old Granada Studios and […]
We all know by now that Prides are famed for their highly praise-worthy live shows and punch-the-air musicality but what we don’t see that often is a sneak behind the scenes of those infamous tour parties – pre-gig, backstage, and live and in the moment. Wait no longer, Cameron Brisbane has captured it all on […]
The new music from Lostboycrow continues to pour bountiful like wine from a golden chalice, 2017 has already birthed three equally great yet varied fruits from the artist’s prolific catalogue. This time, intent to raise those temperatures higher and higher in the all-too tempting affair of ‘Devil’s in the Backseat’, a tussle with devilish charm […]
Since releasing debut solo album ‘The Wave’ last October, Tom Chaplin has toured the Western hemisphere once over, taking in dates across the UK and the US. Now into the second leg of a more extensive touring spell, Chaplin and co. are on the road throughout May and will reconvene in the summer for a selection of […]
