North Atlas – The Longest Shadow Attached to the Ankle

Scottish rockers North Atlas recently released their EP The Longest Shadow Attached to the Ankle!

Plain White T’s – self titled

Indie pioneers Plain White T’s have recently returned to our speakers with a beautiful self-titled album. The first in a few years, Plain White T’s is fun and emotional. It holds thirteen tracks of their iconic cheesy lyrics of the 00s, while also having the modern pop punk twist. 


Candy Pop is the brand-new EP by AWOLNATION’s Aaron Bruno. Released on November 10th, Candy Pop is a five-track EP with 3 new, orignal songs and two extra remixes of the title track. The music has a minimalistic groove with creative use of synthetises and effective use of repetition with beats and lyrics. The album is partnered with a trilogy of theatrical music videos.

Awakening Sun have released a great new EP called I Am More!

Detachment – Lack

Lake Malice – Post Genesis

Lake Malice released their fantastic debut EP called Post Genesis through SO Recordings!


The baby emo within me was very excited when I was asked to review the new BOYS LIKE GIRLS album SUNDAY AT FOXWOODS. Growing up religiously hearing The Great Escape and Love Drunk, I couldn’t wait to hear what their first album in eleven years had to hold. Like most bands do, they’ve matured!

Mouth For War – Bleed Yourself

Mouth For War recently released their new album Bleed Yourself! See what Vicki thought!

McFly, LostAlone @ The LCR, Norwich

McFly. A household name, not short of their accolades. Six albums, seven number 1 singles, over 10 million records sold worldwide, and a BRIT Award, to name but a few. Celebrating 20 years as a band this year, McFly hit the UEA LCR Wednesday night with a tour aptly named after their newest album, ‘Power To Play’. My question to you is, have you seen McFly live? If you haven’t, why the hell not?


North Carolina metalcore outfit Heirloom shine bright on their strong debut LP, bringing a polish that even more established bands later in their career struggle with. There isn’t a minute wasted throughout its 33-minute runtime and the only problem I had with ROMANTICIZE was that it ended so quickly.
