Discover: Mirror Shot

Hometown: London  Listen to: ‘Crutch’  The opening chords of ‘Crutch’, the debut single from London indie-rock four-piece Mirror Shot, remind me immediately of Semisonic’s ‘Closing Time’. Perhaps that’s not surprising, given the band’s passion for alternative American guitar canon, which led Niall Rush (guitar), Adam Smith (guitar) and Olivia Horox (percussion/drums) to form in 2018 […]Read More

Album Review: BROODERS

After knocking about on the scene for the last few years, 2017 is looking set to be rather fortuitous to the Leeds outfit who ply their trade in creating torrents of pumped up psyche-grunge. 2016 brought festival slots at the likes of Liverpool’s Sound City and the band oversaw the release of their ‘Hunny’ EP and […]Read More

Introducing: Astroid Boys

Name: Astroid Boys Hometown: Cardiff, Wales Listen to: Posted, Rinsa Hailing from Cardiff’s CF10 area, Astroid Boys aren’t quite what you’d expect at first. Having grown up fuelled on punk co-frontman Traxx wanted to blend his teenage discovery of Grime. The results? A blistering sound reminiscent of Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory. Now four years after their original inception the Welsh collective haven’t […]Read More

Introducing: BROODERS

Name: BROODERS Hometown: Derby, Nottingham & London. Now based in Leeds.

Introducing: Glass Mountain

Name: Glass Mountain Hometown: Bradford, UK Listen to: Glacial, Home In The Weather To simply call Glass Mountain ‘ambitious’ would be a sore understatement. After all, how many other bands have opened their debut EP with a crushing seven-minute track accompanied by a video comprised solely of their lead singer getting a neon face paint? Or how about […]Read More
