Jupiter In Velvet drives with what initially feels like a classic rock & roll sound – vintage crackles and a strong, raspy vocal lead the way. As this album progresses though, the strength of the songwriting takes centre stage far more noticeably than anything else.
Rock & Roll
Straight Six take you back a couple of decades with authentically fast-paced, gritty rock & roll on this album – the sort that fills you with fire and an energetic lust for life. Full Circle hits hard from the offset.
Ed Hale is a fantastic songwriter – this album is driven by a fine fusion of this and a totally enjoyable, eclectic and impressive array of musicianship. Hale’s voice offers a certain meeting between indie-rock grit and singer-songwriter delicacy, the songs feel upbeat but calm – energizing yet welcoming.
This EP is insane – every song is an epic anthem of classic rock, but it’s also never quite as you’d expect. Strangely Alright aren’t afraid to fill the moment with creativity & unpredictable instrumentation. A brilliantly well presented, uplifting collection that marks a huge moment in the band’s journey.
Something like classic rock & roll with a Brit-pop edge of melody & performance, and a whole lot of energy. On top of this is their songwriting – so many tracks feel like absolute anthems, the sort that beg to be witnessed in a live setting; a festival would be ideal.
In among a world of squeaky clean, electronically built records, this release brings about the familiar tones of a simpler time for music fans who miss the way that felt.
Monkey Fighters bring together superb guitar work, sensational energy levels, and an undeniable closeness and connection when it comes to performing as a group.
Hype! is an album ready & waiting to fill the room around you with chaotic energy & classic rock & roll brightness. It’s a project fit for the build-up to anything big – consider this your weekend playlist.
Oddnote have an incredibly hard-hitting, traditional rock sound that just oozes style & authenticity right now
A beautiful moment, encouraging & all-inclusive, making you feel inclined to join in. Easy to picture a live performance sweeping a crowd off their feet.
I have serious doubts about the future of rock & roll. I don’t really hear anyone doing it. It’s a lot of DJs & rappish kind of stuff, singing to a backing track or jam bands & tribute/cover bands, which I don’t get at all. It’s like why would you go see people playing other people’s music?
The three members bring a sort of energy to their aptly named band, certain to get audiences out of their seat & possibly onto their table – head banging like a caffeine addict & true rocker.
