I Am Giant w/ New Volume @ Rebellion Manchester

If you can rely on one thing in life, it’s terrible weather in Manchester. Just on the short walk from the station I get soaked and it’s a relief to duck into the small but welcoming Rebellion club. Main support tonight comes from South African/British alt rock trio New Volume and their catchy, hook laden […]

Beaumont – Honestly EP

In recent years, there seems to have been a surge in pop ‘rock’ bands with big sugary choruses that feel like they are begging for mainstream radio play. From the scene that brought you Five Seconds of Summer is born Beaumont, a four piece hailing from Birmingham. They seem to take the ideas of this […]

Helpless – Debt

Born from the ashes of Brotherhood of the Lake and Godsick, Helpless are an aggressively heavy entity hailing from Plymouth. This is their debut album after their demos were released as an EP by record label Holy Roar.The first thing to notice here is the progression in terms of recording quality. While the EP sounded […]

Soft Fangs – Fractures

Soft Fangs, much in the same manner as Zeal and Ardor is only a band in aural terms. This is a one man project by John Lutkevich, who described Soft Fangs as ‘just a name for the music I make’ in an interview with Independent Music News in 2016. This is the second full length […]

Marmozets @ Arts Club Liverpool

The weight of expectation must be lying very heavy on the shoulders of Marmozets. Having burst onto the scene with their magnificent debut album The Weird and Wonderful in 2014, they have been absent for nearly 2 years following Becca’s recovery from a serious knee injury. It now transpires that they have not been idle and that […]

Sleep Token – II

Sleep Token are, according to them, ‘an entity unlike any encountered before’. They are, apparently, the representatives of a deity known as Sleep. They maintain an anonymity similar to that of Ghost (before they all started taking each other to court), with strange marked masks and interviews seemingly just a vessel to convey further information […]

White Noise Radio – Cosmos

Bristol based alt-rockers White Noise Radio formed in 2014 and released their first EP last spring. This summer’s successor, Cosmos, follows a similar course melding complex riffs and rhythms with huge radio ready choruses. This EP, however, does take a more direct approach with none of the songs out staying the 6 minute mark in […]
