You can find new talent everywhere, whether it be bands at local clubs, Google searches or in this case, sat reading the local paper on a Friday morning!
There’s never anything much in there but I came across an article about Welsh indie rockers Crystal Balloon who released their debut EP Hurricane on July 15. So I checked them out and you should too! The trio consist of guitarist/vocalist Jack Stanton, guitarist Tim Burden and drummer Erik Karvik and take their influence from a range of genres, combining Brit rock with singer/songwriter storytelling.
You can get a feel for the EP with latest track The Wheel below;
