EP REVIEW: Loose Fit lure us in to temptation with debut self-titled EP

Born out of a mutual love for experimental music, Sydney based group Loose Fit bring an unexpected groove to the classic fury of punk. The result is something altogether catchy and rapturous in sound, even through powerful themes of emotional responses to change, darkness and frustration. The band’s debut had previously been self-released on a Continue Reading

GUEST FEATURE: Craig Gray reflects on his lifelong journey with Pearl Jam culminating with their new album ‘Gigaton’

Sometimes the best people to write about a band or an album are not the journalists- the ones that receive the advance download link far ahead of the real fans, the ones that idly click on the link because they ‘may as well’ in case it drums them up to write a 1000 words to Continue Reading

IN FOR QUESTIONING: Milo Gore give us an insight into the world behind the guitars in this revealingly personal chat.

We spoke to Milo a couple of weeks back on release day of their latest single “Jerry Can”. With the debut album on the way we wanted to hear what Milo Gore have been up to the past couple of years, but we accidentally went down a fascinating deep wormhole with frontman and lead songwriter Continue Reading

ALBUM REVIEW: Moaning – Uneasy Laughter: An astounding amount of atmosphere for a 3-piece

Moaning are an L.A based band made up by vocalist/guitarist Sean Solomon, bassist and keyboardist, Pascal Stevenson and drummer Andrew MacKelvie. Following their eponymous debut, they have again collaborated and put together their collective issues, paranoias and challenges into a new incredibly dense record with a ton to unpack. “Moaning are reminiscent of your anxious Continue Reading

EP REVIEW: Talk Show’s commentary on making more of modern life’s throwaway culture on new EP ‘These People’

The surge of the South London drawl continues to grow with the gravelly post-punk energy of four piece Talk Show, a band well noted for their powerful live performances. This is carried over to their singles, as recordings continue to bring this energy alive without being a simple copy from stage to studio. Debut single Continue Reading

IN FOR QUESTIONING: We get ahead of the curve with future Liverpool hero SKIA

A few weeks ago we spoke to SKIA, ya know, before the world did it’s thing. We were upbeat and had a lovely chat, we were excited for summer and getting a bit ‘dark fruits’ in fields listening to her anthems. Well, that’s all changed, but what hasn’t changed is SKIA’s ability to write pop Continue Reading

E.P REVIEW: Alfie Neale- If My World Falls Apart. Shimmering blue-eyed soul as Neale plots his peaks and pitfalls.

  Sometimes timing is everything. Alfie Neale’s debut E.P has perhaps one of the more unintentionally apt titles of all the releases to drop in recent weeks, even if his concern is more personal complications than global apocalypse. Either way, If My World Falls Apart is his most ambitious project to date, conceived and realised Continue Reading

SINGLE REVIEW: Now is the perfect ‘Time’ to try Plymouth’s The Native

‘The earlier spark… erupting halfway through before gradually fading to nothing’ Plymouth based quintet’s latest single ‘Time’ is an ineffably chilling voyage into how we spend our lives. Opening with gentle, lo-fi crooning over tranquil guitar, the song starts in waves, the vocals lapping against the edge of your awareness; it fades, slowly coming in Continue Reading

ALBUM REVIEW: Humanist – Humanist. Art rarely creates this level of excitement in its conception and execution: an instant classic.

If ever a collection of songs turned up at an apt time then it’s Humanist, the debut self-titled alter-ego outing from former Exit Calm guitarist Rob Marshall. In a year that is strange, indeed unique, among its predecessors; when the UK sought to become an island nation once more only to find a virus creeping Continue Reading
