They are Saytr Play, and this is their new single, Fragile.

The Magpie Salute ‘High Water I’ To Be Released August 10th

Old friends pass through our lives similar to characters in a time-worn, dog-eared novel.   As we page through life, they return to walk alongside of us on bold new adventures at all the right moments. Such is the story of The Magpie Salute. For as much as the group represents a musical union of swaggering rock ‘n’ roll, psychedelic blues, and campfire-worthy storytelling, it also marks a reunion of musicians… Keep Reading

The Moods Release Summer Anthem ‘Carnival’

Whilst some bands can make you feel there is an invisible ‘Danger: Do not get too close’sign attached to them, this ten-piece collective of poets, musicians and producers from the Northwest have far more of a ‘welcome’ mat vibe.

REVIEW: Johnny Marr ‘Call The Comet’

There is an old myth/cliche/belief in music that the third album is always the most difficult. Considering that Johnny Marr’s third album with The Smiths was The Queen Is Dead, he does have a head start on others on how to break that taboo. Fast forward 32 years later, and it’s the third album from Marr’s solo odyssey, Call The Comet. So how does it fare? The album opens with… Keep Reading

Narcissus Have Found Their Home With ‘Sense of Place’

The phrase long-awaited album is used pretty often but it’s spot on with the new release by narcissus – ‘a sense of place’. And it’s well worth the wait. With an output that has been described as both epic and anthemic, Manchester based band narcissus were tipped for big things in the mid-noughties, having signed a publishing deal on the back of some genre-bending demos and following a series of… Keep Reading

Pride in ‘City Calm Downs’ Latest Offering

Melancholic rockers ‘City Calm Down’ announce the latest single, Pride, from their recently released album ‘Echoes in Blue’ Moving away from the roaring post-punk bass hooks that repeatedly punctuated the Melbourne bands last single (In This Modern Land), Pride is far more of a tightly orchestrated synth & sax affair that quite frankly wouldn’t look out of place on a 1980s soundtrack; alongside the likes of The Psychedelic Furs and… Keep Reading

Shader Release Second Hit Single ‘Streets Tell Stories’

Shader return in glorious fashion with their second single and it’s simply brilliant. After whetting our appetites back in January with their first single, ‘Broken Minds’, the four-piece from Macclesfield have unleashed what is quite possibly one of the best track of 2018. ‘Streets Tell Stories’ possesses the quality of a seasoned band which wastes no time in embedding itself into your brain. It’s big, powerful and has a confident… Keep Reading

NEW MUSIC: Pale Green Things ‘Snakes’

Just in time for the summer comes this new track, Snakes, by Pale Green Things. Pale Green Things have been categorised as Alt-Folk and Lo-Fi Indie but I’m not a fan of labels so I’ll just say that this is a great summer track if you like some nicely crafted tunes where you can detect influences without the songs being derivative. The subject matter for Snakes is ‘the fear’ which… Keep Reading

Blue Nation To Release Their Monstrously Infectious 3rd Single

The Birmingham-based three-piece are about to unleash their third single ‘Gimme Some Time’ and it completes a great trilogy of singles. It was always going to be interesting to hear what the band would come up with after their previous two singles, which were both beastly, melodic anthems.

NEW MUSIC: URF ‘For The Ride’

URF are a five piece Manchester band that at the moment are flying under the radar (well my radar anyway), but this is all set to change with the release of their debut EP For The Ride on May 4th followed by a headline show at Night People in Manchester. If you’re getting bored with constant post punk sound that so many bands have adopted then maybe URF are the… Keep Reading
