Adore // Repel: Putting West Yorkshire On The Music Map!

in Gigs by

Adore // Repel are a four-piece from Wakefield, West Yorkshire; a fiercely independent band with their own record label, who are currently building their own studio, who operate without a booking agent or manager, and embrace everything that has always been so healthy about the DIY ethic. Of course, many bands follow a similar path. The difference perhaps with Adore // Repel is that, without resorting to the machinations of the music industry, in 2016 they self-booked and played two full UK tours, along the way selling every bit of merchandise they took with them; performed sell out shows in…

LIVE DATES: Fickle Friends

in Latest Music by

Welcome Fickle Friends, one of the UK’s most exciting, bubbling bands – and what better way to introduce themselves than with ‘Swim’, both their inaugural single for new label home Polydor and the first track they ever released. The original demo of ‘Swim’ was casually dropped online at the start of 2014 without any expectations attached. A first taster of the band’s buoyant and unapologetically ‘80s-inspired indie-pop, it soon took on a life of its own and became the most blogged track by an unsigned act of 2014. The 2016 official release of ‘Swim’, co-produced by Charlie Hugall (Florence and…

Red Faces, O2 Ritz, Manchester

in Live Reviews by

Good, old fashioned, 3-minute rock n’ roll bangers… Bands that are worth their salt have gone through the process of supporting others and have experienced the raw end of the deal on lighting, sound and half empty, sober crowds… …But hey, that’s just how it is. However, there is a tipping point where it’s time to take that leap of faith and start touring/headlining your own shows. Well, It’s pretty much that tipping point now for Red Faces. There’s no secret to rock n’ roll, get on stage, look cool and have the 3 to 4-minute bangers to back it all up…

UP-AND-COMING indie band The Sherlocks played a brilliant set to a sell-out crowd in Southampton on Saturday night. The gig at The Joiners was a memorable milestone as it was the Sheffield band’s first southern show in their first truly nationwide tour.

Regardless, the Red Stripe is flowing and even one girl in a white bodycon dress is air-guitaring to the support band. The night is full of promise for the young High Tyde guys from Brighton, heralded as the ones to watch…
