London art-rock six-piece Red Kite ease us into expansive new territories, on new single ‘Take Care of Your Own’. With four guitars and two drummers at their foundation, the band achieve new sonic heights.
Lying south of the River Thames, Lewisham really embodies the spirit of London’s underground cultural movements. In dodgy looking council estates and niche neat bars, London’s disaffected youth shine through the nonsense of the city’s money-minded centre, just a stone’s throw away. The quirky Montague Arms, with its pseudo classic aesthetic, is where we call […]
Some might say recently music has changed Hackney forever, others claim that Hackney has changed music forever. Whatever you believe, it’s hard to deny that the once overlooked London borough is now one of the hubs for all things music in London. Sebright Arms is just one of many fine examples of good venues, hosting […]
To many in the know, Shepherd’s Bush is one of the London’s most underrated gem’s in terms of nightlife. There’s a lot more to do than just losing oneself in the vast open retail therapies known as the Westfield conglomerate. For a town so steeped in culture that dates to the birthing of some of […]
London Alt-Pop three piece, Pace are dreaming of sunny horizons on their latest offering, ‘Through Your Fingers’. A cheery, bouncy affirmation of young blossoming love set to a backdrop of luscious, warm brass parts, stop/start guitars and a laid back swung drum beat.
Known for its quirky side streets, vintage shops and wide range cultural influences. Hackney really is a wonderland, one of the most optimistic areas of London, in nature and personality. Beside the train tracks we find Oslo, a hip and happening bar and venue that is cool enough to house both dive bar dropouts as […]
Plastered with laid back jazzy beats, soothing Prince-esque vocals and a chorus hook so defined and reinforced, it will spiral round your head for days. Little Grim’s latest offering is a truly exotic delight.
Following the release of last year’s monster of an EP, ‘Kind Of Alone’, Honey Lung are back in fine form with their third single ‘Sophomore’. After a slew of sold out shows across London, it’s nice to see that the band are gearing up to launch more material out into the stratosphere.
Islington is emblematic of what life is like inside the gentrified bubble of London. Despite invoking yuppie dreams of flashy restaurants, cocktail bars and boutique shopping, Islington is still a hub for music that is vibrant and embracing of all different styles and creeds. Since re-opening in 2010, Islington Assembly Hall has played host to […]
Wrought with poppy, ‘in yer face’ vibes, Glass Caves take over the hip and happening Camden Assembly. With an arsenal of talent in support acts, Deco and Little Grim, there’s not a more perfect way to spend a Friday night in the city.
After what has been a fantastic year for FEWS, a new moon approaches on the horizon to open their hotly anticipated 2017 European tour. With dates in Germany, Switzerland and Luxembourg already under their belt and one of our favourite albums of last year. Not only do FEWS look to be the band of the […]
Situated in a vibrant part of West London, Notting Hill Arts Club is a haven for live music. Far from the gritty, edgy venues of Shoreditch, the Arts Club resides under a HSBC branch. Fitting yet disconcerting, Notting Hill Arts Club has a more up market vibe than most grassroots venues. Catering to the clubbers […]
Formerly the Barfly, the Camden Assembly is at the forefront of London’s music scene and it’s easy to see why. As London became rapidly gentrified, the ruins of the skaggy indie rock of the noughties held on to its last breath in the Barfly before shutting up shop. The Camden Assembly however, caters for all […]
As a child, I grew up with the church. Every Sunday morning, we would venture out as a family for the hour or so to partake in prayer. Stepping back into a church for the first time in some years had quite a strange effect on me, especially due to the circumstances. Illuminated with candles […]
Over the years The Lexington, based in North London, has gathered a reputation for putting on some of the best up and coming bands. Tonight is no different. This show comes as part of The Line Of Best Fit’s five day festival, showing off some of the blogs most hotly tipped bands for 2017, aptly […]
The Pickle Factory lies somewhere down a backstreet on the border of Hackney. Tucked away from the chaos of London town, it feels all too quiet on this brisk Monday night. With a capacity of only a couple of hundred people, tonight’s venue seems a world apart from the stages Ed Nash will be used […]
Toothless (a.k.a Bombay Bicycle Club’s Ed Nash) is back with the expansive new single ‘Sisyphus’. Nash is set to release his highly anticipated debut album, ’The Pace of the Passing’. Nearly three years after the release of Bombay Bicycle Club’s ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’, the aforementioned bassist is ready to go it alone, with […]
