SINGLE REVIEW: Dogs – Electric Screams
Since the formation of Manchester-based band, Electric Screams, just earlier this year, there’s been high anticipation for the release of a debut single. It’s safe to say that the wait is (almost) over, in the form of short but sweet, jazz infused rock ballad, ‘Dogs‘.
ALBUM REVIEW: Come Back – Emma Frank
Following on from the 2018 release of ‘Ocean Av’, Emma Frank‘s latest album is yet another piece of pure beauty to be added to her ever-growing discography of acoustic-folk loveliness.
SINGLE REVIEW: The Wolf – Freja Frances
Ahead of her album release in September, Freja Frances has released poignant new single ‘The Wolf‘. Released back on 19th July, ‘The Wolf‘ is set to be the 5th track on upcoming album ‘The Funeral’.
SINGLE REVIEW: He Takes Over – Luke Royalty
Released today (August 2nd), ‘He Takes Over‘ is the glittery debut from Darlington/Manchester based singer-songwriter, Luke Royalty. Although Luke has been singing and gigging in bands for years, Luke Royalty is his brand new solo project, the clever moniker of his full name: Luke Taylor.
SINGLE REVIEW: Return To The Drake’s Nest – BRIDGES
London’s very own rising rock quintet, BRIDGES, are back for the third time already this year, with latest single: ‘Return To The Drake’s Nest‘. Released just a day before they played a slot at The Bimble Inn at Glastonbury, ‘Return To The Drake’s Nest‘ presents a truly anthemic guitar-lead sound.

SINGLE REVIEW: Fruit – Ronald Raygun
Fronted by the ever-so talented multi-instrumentalist Sam Kennedy, the past few years have seen Ronald Raygun develop into an impressive musical body of artists. Known for their dreamy electro-infused tunes and endearing psychedelic sounds, the Manchester-based group are back with latest single, ‘Fruit‘.
SINGLE REVIEW: I Don’t Make Me – Ignant Benches
Reigning from San Diego, CA, Ignant Benches are a young alt/indie band that deserve to be heard. With a sound remnant to that of the early 2000’s indie scene, particularly the scene popular in the UK, the band are the perfect host of modern age nostalgia.
SINGLE REVIEW: By Blue – East Of My Youth
Reykjavík’s own electro-pop dream, East Of My Youth, are back for the first time this year with latest single ‘By Blue‘. For fans of Vallis Alps and Lykke Li, East Of My Youth‘s tracks are full to the brim with ethereal ambience and tone, and ‘By Blue‘ certainly follows in suit.
SINGLE REVIEW: Foreign Places – Belvoir Hill
Originally reigning from North Yorkshire, Belvoir Hill have spent years performing mainly as a cover band. Playing hometown pubs, parties and even a private island in Essex, they’ve had a long stretch without any official releases under their belts. However, yesterday (28th April) marked the end of an era and welcomed a new, as the…
