Track Review: Think Sharp Kid // Furr

Furr, an alternative rock quartet from Leeds, have just released the video for their debut single ‘Think Sharp Kid’, and with its raw, angst-ridden riffs and riotously catchy chorus, it’s one that pretty much already establishes them as a band to start getting excited about.

Track Review: Junk Food // Findlay

Findlay doesn’t hold back on shit she doesn’t agree with, so it should come as no surprise that her latest installment of grit-pop ‘Junkfood’ voices gripes on a few things. In fact the only gripe it doesn’t seem to have is with having a good time (see the fantastic video below) there’s food all over the place, an […]Read More

Track Review: Need It to Stay // XOCKHA

Submerged within a haze of oscillating synths and sun-kissed guitars, XOCKHA’s increasingly refined sound appears to be its most prevalent on latest track ‘Need It to Stay’, exerting the confidence and professional outlook showcased in their earlier work on a new and exciting level.

It’s a lovely intimate, yet still relatively big time setting, despite being stupidly sweaty for sell-out shows. Tonight one of the hottest bands in the UK, Blossoms rolled into town as part of their pretty huge UK […]Read More

Album Review: Maudlin Days // Ocean Carolina

New York based band Ocean Carolina have released their sophomore album Maudlin Days. A heart-felt, deep-cutting 12 tracks of percussive Americana. At the centre of the band’s creativity is Michael Simone, a former EDM producer who decided to enter a more authentic genre of music. It’s a transition that would normally raise a few eyebrows.
