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 […]
Cloves is a singer-songwriter with something magical up her sleeve. The track ‘Better Now’ opens with a simple acoustic melody, topped with her emotive vocals. The loose half-rhyme of ‘happy’ and ‘just for a moment I’m free’ lure us into what seems a folk-tinged reflection on self-identity and a relationship. A character who is ‘better […]
The night’s evening of music was hosted in Salford’s premier local, The Eagle Inn. Hidden in the small pocket of back-streets located between Manchester’s hustle and bustle of Deansgate and the glory of its 18,000 capacity arena, the quirks and charms of the venue-slash-boozer easily outweigh the rush that its counterparts provide. Working as the official […]
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 […]
Matthew And Me are back with their third release this year, in the form of new single ‘Silver’. Weightless and calm, ‘Silver’ sails smoothly along with serene guitar melodies and delicate vocals, before kicking into a powerful chorus, posing the question: “So what do we think of all this?”
A passage of words set to a melody can wield immeasurable strength, and ignite within its listener a life-long connection. For the greats and the poets of our generations, a skill such as this one refuses coercion and falls naturally, and might even move millions in its wake. A song that has travelled the ages and continues to stir […]
The debut single from upstate NY trio Slumbers opens with a gentle, dazy guitar riff and serene, reserved vocals which seem to blossom as more layers are added underneath. Each added instrument or melody breathes new life into the song; the introduction of snare provides a subtle backbone, as the horns add a tasteful degree of […]
Hailing from Australia’s Gold Coast, Yes Sir Noceur’s sound is a smorgasbord of influences that come together to create something unique yet nicely familiar. Their latest single ‘Turn To Fire’ sticks to this no-blueprint blueprint very nicely.
Macclesfield three-piece Cassia chase the sun and celebrate their friendship in the accompanying film clip to new single ‘100 Times Over’. Themes of embracing adventure and searching for escapism are explored heavily within the visuals.
Today we are delighted to bring you the first fruits from new Manchester-based band South Island Son, a collective of exciting young musicians that are ready to make their mark on the city’s music scene and also further afield (revealing to us that they already have plans scheduled to tour France and the UK, early 2017).
Stoke-On-Trent via Manchester indie quartet Delamere have returned with new single ‘Kill It’, in which the band goes straight for the heart.
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.
We love Kent bands, that is a fact. The South East has become a hub for creativity, nurturing and sustaining a growing music scene that is incredibly exciting. One of the bands that are really tearing it up right now are Sittingbourne’s Indoor Pets, with the recent release of their ‘Luge Lessons’ EP, the band […]
