At a venue much more intimate than previous years, Swim Deep combined high energy synth and riffs with a sense of dreamy stupor in a way that only this Birmingham band can.

The show was opened by Phoebe Green and her band, blessing those who had made it down early enough with her dulcet tones over catchy and enticing synth fuelled tunes. A joyful and soulful mix of heavy beats and soft, ethereal vocals, Phoebe Green serenaded t...

On the final date of their autumn tour, Liverpool six-piece Red Rum Club performed at Glasgow’s legendary King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut.

Glasgow local band, Beafets opened the evening with their indie-rock style set. Despite only having three releases on Spotify and being the first band on stage that evening, they warmed up the audience perfectly to the point where the crowd sang along to multiple of their songs. 

Next on stage was ano...

On what seemed like a gloomy night, Sheffield’s music fans descended on The Leadmill to pay tribute to yet another brilliant local band calling it a day. The room was sombre as fans discussed their upset at the announcement of High Hazels’ hiatus, however there remained plenty of anticipation in the eyes of each in the room.

Daniel Whitehouse and band, with remnants of Marr and Ashcroft, kicked off the night with melodies pleas...

At an intimate gathering for the launch of the new Fred Perry x RAF Simons collection, Trudy and the Romance had the whole room swaying and toe tapping to their nostalgic 50s style songs.

With an aesthetic to match, the boys drew in the audience with softly enthralling sound that not often reaches the forefront of music today. 

Self described as ‘mutant 50s pop’ this Liverpool band transported the crowd to a different plain. Co...

Nestled away in the Leicestershire country side, 110 Above Festival returned this month for a triumphant tenth year, full to the brim with some of the country’s most exciting upcoming artists.

Despite the challenge of living up to the successes of 2018, this year saw 110 Above provide a heavenly, stress free weekend which many festivals could learn from. Free of clashes, mud and mess, yet filled with cheap pints, loving atmosph...

Neatly laid out across what feels like an intimate version of a Reading & Leeds arena, three stages provided two full days of excitement packed sets from both well loved indie favourites and some of the UK’s strongest upcoming talent; rangi...

Among other well established Cliché’s, it’s a well known fact that behind every good rock band is a solid uniform, from The Ramones through to The Libertines, Sergeant Peppers Beatles through to Kiss (Let’s just not mention the infamous white jeaned Johnny Borrell), a band with an image can be the difference between being good and being brilliant.

But Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard aren’t just a band that’re aware of the well cemented...

Lotus flowers embellishing the set and neon lights warming up the room, before she could even step foot onto stage, it was more than evident that fans were in for a performance nothing short of brilliant. With a show full of passion and a set full of surprises, Nina Nesbitt definitely made Manchester her own on Saturday night. 

Taking to the stage with newer track, Somebody Special, the uniqueness of the setlist is made evident...
