Halfnoise – Velvet Face

For die hard fans of Paramore, you probably have an understanding that Halfnoise is Zac Farro (former Paramore drummer) and if you are already familiar, you already understand this is not a comparison of his former successors. Indie / Chill would be the most accurate way to describe the vibe given from Farro’s project. As […]

All Time Low @ Hammersmith Apollo

As I arrive to the venue, I find a queue zig-zagged, and stretched over a 10 minute walk away from the venue itself to find the end of it, like waiting for the opening of a huge festival, as my mind wonders how the hell all these people will fit in such a space. As […]

Ryan Hamilton & The Traitors @ Old Church London

Sum 41 – Don’t Call It A Sum Back @ Brixton Academy

Canadian band Hollerado warm things up in the Brixton Academy as a stomping opener of a gritty rock band. As a band not overly familiar in the UK, noticeable by the lack of crowd singing along, they are sure to gather more of a fan base after this tour with a respectful crowd gradually getting […]

Opening with a low beefy riff on Shape Shifter, with a classic […]

Nightlife – Salt & Acid

London quad Nightlife have never appeared on my radar before, after being in London for a year, I am ashamed that is the case. They can only move onwards and upwards with this great release, which I hope will see them soar as high as the vocal range throughout the album. Left Alone is the […]

Figures – Figures EP

The quintet from down-under that you may not know about, Figures mean business when they put together an EP containing 4 tracks that punch out an incredibly unique take on influences between the century mark. The Melbourne lads want to be found from across the world, and I am here to install a message to […]

Miami Monroe – Miami Monroe

Hailing from Glasgow, a pop-punk quintet named Miami Monroe have stepped forward to provide you with an EP that you shouldn’t cast aside. As an epic Intro starts off the EP, you are not sure what to expect, with a repeated guitar lead, as it slowly builds up, as if you are about to start […]

Lower Than Atlantis – Safe In Sound

Lower Than Atlantis have some great feats in their name, dominating the scene here in the UK. With a decade of writing together, bashing out 4 full albums in the course of 4 years, this 3 year gap may be just what the guys needed to give the fans something worth waiting for. So here […]

A Love Letter To… Mest
