Album Review: Cabin Fever Dreams // RALPH TV

If you were sixteen and wide-eyed in 2012, London was a good place to be. The Olympics painted the city with a warm and inclusive backdrop for fresh talent to pass through and do its bit. In the autumn, a new wave of dream pop-inspired kids with pastel-coloured pedals and oversized shirts started to sell […]Read More

Brighton alt-rockers Youth Sector are a quintet comprising of Nick Tompkins, Josh Doyle, Brad Moore, Karl Tomlin and Harvey Dent. ‘Renting Spaces In My World’ is their latest release, with the post-punk style narrative detailing a paranoid character’s gradual comprehension that their dream world is crumbling, reflected in the increasingly unhinged lyrics as the track […]Read More

Live Review: RY X // St. Batholomew’s Church, Brighton –

If there’s anything more magical than the idea of RY X performing his new album, Dawn, in a neo-gothic church nestled in the backstreets of Brighton, it’s RY X actually performing his new album, Dawn, in a neo-gothic church nestled in the backstreets of Brighton. And that’s exactly what happened last Tuesday night. Embarking on the first leg of […]Read More

Live Review: Oscar // Patterns, Brighton – 03.11.16

On a cold and dreary Monday evening at the beginning of October, it’s not always easy to rouse the residents of Brighton from their sofas to venture out into the sea mist and temperamental weather conditions.

Four years since their last visit to Brighton, dream-pop icons Beach House could not have chosen a more suitable venue in which to perform their comeback gig.

Live Review: Explosions In The Sky // Brighton Dome –

I had high expectations for Explosions In The Sky, which were amplified by both the fact they were playing in one of Brighton’s best music venues, the Brighton Dome, and that We Were Promised Jetpacks were supporting. Explosions In The Sky are a post-rock band hailing all the way from Texas. Although their music is primarily instrumental, […]Read More

Live Review: Little Comets // Concorde 2, Brighton 21.02.16

Northeast indie-rock trio, Little Comets, graced the stage of Brighton’s Concorde 2 for the fourth time since 2012 on Sunday night.

Single Review: Ursa Court // Twin

Twin is a Brighton-based indie rock band. Their single, ‘Ursa Court,’ released only a couple of weeks ago on Youtube, is an exciting presentation of their sound. The drums propel the song straight from the start, while the husky lead singer sings wonderfully clever melodic lines as the song develops increasing excitement, until the build up to the […]Read More
