Launching in January is Clue Records’ very own singles club – Clue Club. Singles clubs are not unfamiliar in the record business but the way that Clue are approaching their subscription service is. Rather than go a vinyl-only route, they decided modernity is the way and with each new monthly release comes a digital download […]
The great Northern city of Leeds has been enjoying a resurgance of late, the creative types that reside in the city have founded a new inspiring hub – a place to create, to breed new ways of thinking, to celebrate the arts and in doing so, have built a strong community where like-minded creatives thrive. […]
Yellow Days is George van den Broek – a writer, producer, artist. Now, our mailbox gets filled up with a lot of new music every day so for something to cut through all that noise, it has to be special. And hearing Yellow Days for the first time sealed our opinion straight away, enough that we […]
Powerhouse soul is what Rag’N’Bone Man deals in. His gritty, street-trodden confessionals bare the weight of the soul, and within that it’s his emotionally candid way of expression that acts as a cathartic release.
First are a three-piece garage-rock band tucked away in London. I’d never heard of them and still don’t understand why not – they’re insane. First have nailed the 90s alt. rock sound (think Pavement and tinges of early Weezer), but still they manage to put a little something of their own in. It has a […]
New to the synth-pop mantle is FEELS. As yet, they only have two singles to their name and a blossoming fanbase, but the trio have built up a strong arsenal to lead with. Poised with a touch of the dramatic and a boldness to back it up, their electro-pop is undeniably refreshing and uncompromising.
Radio DJ and producer, and just simply lover of new music – Abbie McCarthy is curating a new club night called Good Karma Club. It’s a hub for new music fans, where the sole purpose of the night is to celebrate new sounds and emerging musicians, while having the best time possible and maybe making […]
Stumbling upon London four-piece SHARK DENTIST is not advised if you’re distinctively afraid of noise. This band are openly wild and furiously content about it. Take latest single ‘Cut Myself Shaving’ for example, a riotous punk-fuelled three and a bit minutes of clattering sludge. It’s feral, it’s vicious and it’s totally intoxicating.
GILLBANKS are making delicious noise in the capital, the band are led by the tenacious but free spirited Sam Gillbanks and are gearing up to release their debut EP ‘Lend Me Your Skin’. A ferocious yet very melodic slice of indie rock.

Berlin based singer/songwriter, Martin Kelly, is one half of the duo, Martin & James, but this year has seen Martin take to his own spotlight and begin a solo project.
Kent based three-piece, Inevitable Daydream are making their formative steps into the world with their debut single ‘Brown Acid’. It’s a scuzzed-up barrage of rumbling bass and mind-tearing riffs.
The times when you stumble on a new artist and are instantly impressed, are rare. But when these moments come, you know your life will never be the same again. Music can change the way you see the world; one poetic refrain can lift your mood, a shared emotion can help you find solace. To me, a […]
Ireland is picturesque with its sprawling hills and vast landscapes. So you might say that the music which is spawned there would also emanate the same attributes, this would be true of Armagh-born Conchúr White and his band, Silences. Their delicately strung and beautifully told musical tapestries behold an honest reflection of our emotional capacity […]
Birmingham shoegazers GLEAM are like the beautiful bi-product of My Bloody Valentine and Smashing Pumpkins. Bathed in 90s alternative influences, GLEAM make us excited for about their future.
TUUSC are unlike other bands, in that they like to go against the norm. They can be anyone and anything, with the exception of one key visionary, the man who brought this vision to life: Matthew Aldus. Basically the ethos is “that creativity should come from all angles and so Matthew likes to describe Tuusc […]
Like the pure streams of aqua that pour from the heavens, Australian chanteuse Adria is hugely influenced by the glistening, turbulent power of water. After all, her namesake is in ode to the Adriatic Sea. Her music echoes this fluidity, with striking composure Adria has crafted a catalogue of beautifully poised, alt-pop songs.
There’s nothing I like more than being pleasantly surprised by a musician’s musical talent and songwriting skill. It’s that strike of lightning, that pure shot of emotion whether it be hope, pain, joy or melancholia. Every little minute detail sounds as gloriously rewarding as the next, because even from the most troubling times, eventually comes solace […]
Saltwater Sun usher in girl-fronted rock with pop sensibilities, akin to the sweet ferocity of Wolf Alice and The Preatures. With their début single ‘Habit On My Mind’ they prove that infectious songwriting, taut soaring guitars and glistening rhythms are the perfect cocktail to create a blaring, radiant summer anthem.
