The kind of music we search for. Great musicianship, lyrics, passionate and honest, meaningful; songs that are actually about something. We found these things in Under A Banner. With dance inducing riffs from all corners, all instruments and vocal melodies, each one colliding and complimenting the next – we completely fell for the sound, and we can’t … Continued

Not just one of the best bands to come out of Manchester, Autumn Ruin are up there with the very best rock bands we’ve heard this year. From anywhere.

There is no way to begin, and absolutely no sane way to end. Sharon Van Etten is a talent that leaves us begging for more. An absolute pleasure to hear, see, and experience. Power ballad, pop rock, lyrical bliss, depth, angst, dance, devour, absolute artistry, raw, real, devoted and pure. In a nut shell; we’re completely … Continued

The problem though, is that with such a saturated industry of similar skill sets, it can be a little difficult sometimes for an artist to … Continued

I haven’t been excited about a heavier sounding band since I scratched up all of my Papa Roach, Puddle of Mudd, Seether, and Audioslave CD’s in a low quality car system five years ago. What a poor sentence to open with, way too lengthy, I apologize. Anyway, five years is a long time to be without a … Continued

The first I heard of them was a straight up introduction to a live show at The Troubadour, London. They were as brilliant then as they are in studio form. ‘Wake in Fright’ sounds the same live as it is below, except for one important detail; at the live show, you get to witness the relentless raw energy … Continued
