Ian Hall, Wesley Hughes and Phil Morton make up Liverpudlian electo-pop outfit, Filter Distortion. They have expertly crafted a sound that stands alone from the rest, a really exciting find I must say. A band not to be missed. Filter Distortion have seriously worked hard, having self produced and released many songs, all which are available […]
Self-proclaimed hopeless romantics The Lottery Winners are just the breath of fresh air the music industry needs right now. You can immediately hear The Smiths influence in their music, and I’m not complaining, this band is utterly brilliant. Born and raised in Salford/Manchester, they have been products of their environment, the music scene in Manchester has had […]
The Sea are Alex D’ Chisholme and Peter D’ Chisholme, these lads pride themselves on making music that is in its purest form raw, unadulterated noise, and I for one, can’t complain with that.
London based Strangers are the band of the moment and are hotly-tipped in my list for the Sound of 2013. Their blend of dark, delicious synth-ridden electronica is just what we need right now: intensely, catchy lyrics and expertly produced melodies is what makes them so successful, in my mind, that’s the perfect combination. It’s been a […]
This Dublin duo are making waves right now and rightly so. These brothers, Harry & Alfie Hudson-Taylor, really do have something special. They have honed their craft and are rapidly gaining steam, with a fast-growing fan base (over 35,000 supporters on Facebook alone) and they still haven’t released their début LP yet. That is impressive.
This Bromley five-piece are making waves and are sure to be big successes. Their sound ranges from slick, fast-paced guitar tunes with a heavy dose of drum beats, made to get you dancing, to more melancholic, melodious synth guitar concoctions. There’s a lot of excitement and buzz surrounding Bedlam Crooks at the minute, and rightly so, […]
Catfish and the Bottlemen are a four-piece from North Wales. They are definitely ones to look out for, in my opinion. Their sound is loud, riotous and using their own words ‘explosive’ guitar rock, and it couldn’t be more true of that in their live shows.
Chvrches are a three-piece from Glasgow, Scotland. Their sound is pure electronic synth pop – deliciously dark and almost too indulgent at times.
K.I.D.S. are a duo comprised of Swedish singer Rosanna Munter and Charles Cave (bassist and member in White Lies). They have already secured a place at SXSW this year, one of the industry’s leading festivals, which will be a huge platform for them as they are virtually unheard of at this time but making traction as we […]
Deadbeat Darling are a four-piece from New York comprising of Joseph King, Mohit Bhansali, Evan Howard and Ian Everall. At it’s core, their sound is very much Rock n Roll, fuelled with elements of surf and dub, but at the same time often tinged with a frivolous but gritty edge. Making Deadbeat Darling the band that […]
As we begin a new year, we look forward to all the fresh sounds that we are yet to discover. Understandably, a list following this theme will likely only cover the freshest bands and emerging artists, but rather than follow suit, we wanted to focus inwards on the musician’s that have been making the rounds for […]
The Slow Readers Club are a four-piece from Manchester, and are a great credit to Manchester’s music scene. Melancholic lyrics intertwined with an anthemic, orchestral sound is what makes them so powerful, in my mind. With songs like Block Out The Sun, One More Minute and Follow Me Down, they are unstoppable. The slow-burning intensity of Block Out The Sun by […]
