Faux – Inhale EP

Kicking the EP off is the electrifying “Inhale” before kicking into the ever so catchy “Nerves”. Then there is the more brit-pop feelings of “Call” before it dives into the more emo dwellings of “You know”. The EP finishes with the pop punk musings of lead single “Swimmingly”.

A chat with Lee from Faux

A Chat With Muncie Girls At 2000 Trees Festival 2016

Their debut album ‘From Caplan to Belsize’ came out in March and has been a constant fixture amongst the AltCorner office playlist. We were lucky enough to catch up with the band at this year's 2000 Trees Festival 2016.


There's not much else to say about this album except that well, it's simply awesome. And if post-hardcore is your thing, then you may just agree.

Mitch Emery Takes on The A-Z Questionaire Challenge

Mitch Emery is the type of Singer/Songwriter for those who don't usually like Singer/Songwriters, this is a guy who looks like that guy from that band you can't remember the name of but, remember really liking. IF you take Green Day, My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy, blend with Damien Rice and Glen Hansard, garnish with a sprinkling of Hip-Hop and a healthy dollop of lively stage persona. You now have yourself a Mitch Emery.
