AltCorner went to the Bristol date of their farewell tour and it was a great night from start to finish. Here’s what we thought…
The soft and aggressive sides of the band are fighting each other throughout this EP, but definitely resolve to create the stunning ‘Resolution’.
Thomas George is The Lion and Wolf, and he is fast becoming one of our favourite chill out artists at AltCorner HQ. Thomas embodies all of the things that creates a great singer-songwriter, and he has the tracks to match.
A Thousand Ships is D&TD’s debut album and was created fueled on Pot Noodles, Tea and Biscuits. The four-piece Norwich outfit have really provided a rather stellar account of themselves on their first release.
The EP sees a more mature and well rounded approach to both their lyrics and creation but thankfully, their punk edge isn’t lost and is very much still there.
Tuskens are a 5-piece pop punk band from Bristol and their EP ‘Almost Over’ is a stellar and slick pop punk EP that ticks all of the boxes for a great pop-punk release.
Honey Pot are Alex Hall (from Late Nights & Long Drives) and Jake Griffith playing beautifully crafted emo acoustic music.
This for me, is what pop punk is all about. It seems a lot of former heavyweights within the genre have lost their way by leaning more towards the pop side of it instead of the punk and this is why I am so relieved This Legend show that there is still bands who create honest pop punk.
In March their debut 4 track EP “We Are The Young” is scheduled to be released and we were lucky enough to be able to hear it and share our thoughts.
Second Home is their debut release and it is a real punk feast as songs vary from different origins and genres.
“Drive Drive Delay” is the sophomore release from the Minnesota based 3 piece and it builds upon the praise and acclaim of their debut, “Praise Elephants”.
Drawing influences from bands such as While She Sleep and Hundredth, its clear to see why North Seasons have gained a considerable amount of attention. Although their sound isn’t unique it is consistent and makes them an impressive upcoming outfit within the hardcore scene.
The band cites alexisonfire, Thursday and Young Guns as their influences and whilst I can see them shine through, I really see treasures as a more softer and melodic Letlive with punk vocals shining through and exquisite instrumentals which blend so well it’s like bread and butter.
Make no mistake, the Southampton lads have made a brilliant start for themselves, and you can guarantee that this EP will make you want to take up skateboarding and graze your knees all over again while dressed in your dad’s leather jacket.
