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.
Rock & Roll
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.
Everything from the musicality to the performances to the way in which this release has been recorded – it all works towards this shared sentiment of nostalgic raw energy & realness.
Bad Marriage are living the life right now, offering something that not too many bands or artists seem able to do. This sort of showmanship & positivity can’t generally be faked, so it’s a pleasure to witness it in all of its authentic glory.
There’s a touch of underlying sadness, but it’s expressed only by means of a single line – the music is consistently bright & upbeat, the optimism unquestionable, adding to that energizing element & colourful ambiance that keeps you entertained.
