London’s Fendahlene impress with ease as this brand new album of originals hits the indie rock scene with beauty and strength united.
Indie rock anthems and classic rock passion and power hit the scene with this refreshingly organic, nostalgic take on surf-rock for the contemporary music fan.
Not just one of the most interesting and engaging bands to cross our path this summer – Neon Funeral are also about the most aptly-named, genre-blending example of creative freedom the indie scene has welcomed in quite a while.
Thick distortion and colourful melodic guitar work unite amidst a classic, eighties beat to lead us into this fresh single from Nico Shihadeh.
Hard-working, long-time rockers The R Train kick off the latter half of the summer with a brilliant burst of energy and infectious rhythm.
A brilliant single, Estranged Visions utilises contrast to a fine degree, breaking things down to the bare essentials – that soulful, mildly funky guitar rhythm, isolated between moments of full distortion, bass and drums.
Here we get a kind of early Kings Of Leon vibe. Turn it up loud and the moment rains down with blissful purity.
Swami Lushbeard have struck gold with this new single – stylistically, performance-wise, and in terms of the very songwriting and its poignancy right about now.
One thing that stood out on the last release was The Haunted North’s fine use of contrast and their united ability to shift effortlessly from softness to absolute weight & intensity. Nowhere does this ability shine more brightly than on 21 Grams.
Just months after the launch of Mirrors, another new EP from Come Taste The Misery hits the scene, this time leading with a new set of stories and a heavy use of contrast between melody and fuzz.
Alex VanTrue, renowned vocalist and front-man of Europe’s leading Queen Tribute Band ‘One Vision’, brings this brand new single to life with faultless power, heart, and precision.
Utterly unhurried, and all the better for it, Voice of Dawn looks like it’s done at around 6 minutes, then a slightly tremulous, yet controlled tender vocal comes in right at the death, before being swept away in a shocking sweep of white noise that takes us through to the end proper. Worth your full attention for its full run time. Nicely done!
