After a year in America, The Staves have returned home for a string of intimate shows on British soil, beginning at Gorilla in Manchester tonight. Their latest release was February’s ‘Tired As F*ck’ single, providing the name for this mini tour.
Angel Olsen’s latest album ‘My Woman’ truly highlighted her ability for writing both impeccable indie pop songs and the kind of slow two-chord ballads that make chests tighten, all narrated in her exceptional voice.
In the five years since their Mercury Prize-winning debut album, alt-J have managed to stay at the top of the off-kilter pile that is quirky British rock music. Many parts of their second offering, ‘This Is All Yours’, felt like a continuation of the first album, while other parts brought out more sides to the […]
Tonight sees Ed Nash (ex-Bombay Bicycle Club)’s band play the Leeds Brudenell Social Club on the fifth night of their debut tour. The album ‘The Pace of the Passing’ is a wonderful collection of songs that Nash has spent the last year pouring every ounce of his being into, so it will be nice to […]
The love for American pop punk over here in England is dedicated and tight-knit. As a result, shows like this are attended religiously. Once again Slam Dunk have provided a stellar line up consisting of Tiny Moving Parts, Trash Boat, Pup and The Wonder Years.
The UK leg of their ‘Revolution Radio’ tour sees rock veterans Green Day play their first show on English soil since 2013. It’s a triumphant return, bursting with energy, pyro and huge anthems. Check out our photos from the show below:
The Irish favourites bring their blistering pop to Leeds. With their third album ‘Gameshow’, released in October last year, Two Door Cinema Club drove their sound into even more polished pop territory than their previous efforts.

In January 2016, Bombay Bicycle Club announced an indefinite hiatus after a decade of playing together. By this point frontman Jack Steadman was firmly absorbed in the world of electronica and heartbroken fans were assured that other members had various projects in the works. Toothless is bassist Ed Nash’s project and is the first to see […]
The Games Room in the Brudenell Social Club is perfectly set for an it’s-almost-Christmas show with its decorative blue fairy light backdrop and inviting stage. With a gin and tonic being my choice of festive beverage tonight, it’s time to dance and get merry.
The Fratellis’ debut album ‘Costello Music’ was too perfect for its own good really. Everyone knew it and everyone loved it, and it is the true sound of the band. When they announced a tenth anniversary tour of the album, it felt like it was what everyone had been waiting for since its original stint […]
‘Joined At The Lip’ is the new single from Sheffield four-piece High Hazels. Their music expertly combines both great craftsmanship and attention to sonic detail, and this is no different.
Live albums are tricky in many ways. Firstly, they’re tricky to do well: their purpose is essentially to capture a performance that was as much experienced through eyes as through ears, and make it almost as satisfying as a solely aural experience. It’s essentially the artist saying, “If you went, you can attempt to relive […]
