There’s a lot riding on Delamere right now. Their debut album isn’t just the band’s first, it’s also the flagship release from Scruff Of The Neck Records – it’s the first record the label have ever put out. Clearly, there’s a lot of anticipation in both parties.
With every track that Rosemary Fairweather drops, we learn more and more about her musical intention; she continues to establish her enigmatic nature with every release. We’re only just beginning to understand where her artistic roadmap will lead us. From the sparseness of her production to the plain white aesthetic of her cover art, Fairweather […]
Riding in on a wave of tropical indie-pop fury, FLIIIS have returned with new single ‘On The Sonnet’, which promises romance and strife in equal measure.
With their unique amalgamation of Folk and Americana Blues capturing the imagination of both the public and the press, we took the time to pin down the Icelandic powerhouse known as Kaleo for a chat, and asked them about their European Tour, their outlandish videos, and just what makes their music tick.
As the summer months stretch dauntingly ahead and you realise that you haven’t planned anything of substance for your holiday period, you might feel that what’s needed is a peppy musical picker-upper in your life. Luckily, Belgium-based collective Piano Club are here to do just that, with their glamorous new track ‘Comets’.
Indie upstarts PLAZA are rapidly calling attention to themselves in the unsigned and underground scene, thanks to their fiery debut singles and energetic live shows. Their music, which sounds both agitated and anthemic, is drawing interest from all the right people, and they have been capitalising on it with a short five date tour.
Having debuted their tantrum-inspiring sound on ‘Take It Easy’, Johnny Kills have returned with a fresh new slice of indie pop nonchalance reminiscent of Oasis and The Pigeon Detectives.
Never judge a book by its cover. When you first see the name Rosemary Fairweather, you can be forgiven for assuming that the Toronto songstress is a folk artist, someone writing music that conjures up images of Scarborough Fair and freshly cut wheat for men with beards to nod thoughtfully along to.
Skaters’ debut album Manhattan has become something of a cult classic amongst the indie and alternative community, and rightly so. Full of tight, concise and extremely fun songs, the record was a perfect groundworks from which the band could really go anywhere on their next project. As it turns out, the band have gone for […]
Scruff of the Neck records clearly have a good thing going for themselves. In a night which showcased a number of acts associated with the independent label and promoter, it was impressive that, right from the off, Manchester’s Sound Control was playing host to new talent of a dizzying height. The night was about collaboration, […]
Brace yourselves, summer is coming. And with it, the tropical indie bliss of Labradoor’s latest release ‘Silence’.
You’d have thought a minute and 30 seconds wasn’t enough time to write a fully formed song, but as The White Stripes, The Hives, and now Johnny Kills have proven, that’s time-a-plentiful.
Following a stonking set at this year’s Live At Leeds festival, we caught up with the city’s own Narcs. Despite channelling a political urgency and visceral stage presence, the guys were jovial and friendly on initial meeting. Frontman Wilko arrived with a pair of freshly picked daisies, and brought Joe (lead guitarist) and John (bassist) […]
We encounter a great deal of pop music in our day to day lives. Radio, YouTube, Spotify and TV ads, which bombard us with the sight of delicious food whilst Clean Bandit softly whirl in the background. However, rarely do we get to experience pop music at its absolute freshest, its rawest, and arguably at […]
Stoke-On-Trent via Manchester indie quartet Delamere have returned with new single ‘Kill It’, in which the band goes straight for the heart.
In the evocatively titled ‘Please Pour Away Those Petrol Eyes’, Divine Youth channel the ramshackle playfulness of The Libertines, mingled with the emotional trappings of The Smiths and Interpol.
Is there anything more ominous than a crow? Whether they circle you in life or on film, they’re perceived as menacing, dangerous, and an omen of fear. Perhaps this is why Crows chose their name; it perfectly encapsulates the layer of gloomy foreboding presence in their track Unwelcome Light.
