Coldbones – ‘Distance’

Kent/Brighton trio Coldbones’ debut release ‘Distance’ brings about a pleasant assembly of post rock, released by the aptly titled Dream Atlantic Records. ‘The Hand Between Us’ starts off the EP with a dreamy riff, rapidly accompanied by an echo of drums that weave quickly between the other cluster of sounds. The steady tempo and metronome […]

Days Like Today – ‘We’re Only Human’

Toronto’s Days Like Today produced one of the best unsigned releases of 2013 in our opinion. Their ‘Vacate’ debut EP was five tracks of hard hitting alt-rock with some huge guitar riffs and even bigger vocal melodies. That release, and the band themselves, should have got far more attention and this follow up EP could […]

Perspective, A Lovely Hand To Hold – ‘Play Pretend’

‘Play Pretend’ is the new EP from Perspective, A Lovely Hand To Hold and it’s hugely enjoyable. This is four tracks of inventive emo-rock with shades of indie-pop and math-rock thrown in for good measure. The New Hampshire based quartet will be unknown to many but have, frustratingly a few days short of submitting lists, […]

Devil Sold His Soul – ‘Belong ╪ Betray’

Upon the departure of Ed Gibbs and the ushering in of new frontman Paul Green, many mused how he would fill Gibbs’ shoes – they were, after all, pretty big. For Devil Sold His Soul, founded in 2004, have become a household name in the UK. Tours with bands such as Architects and slots at […]

Bad Sign – ‘Destroy’

Having two releases within a year of each other can be a difficult achievement. Having two good releases within a year of each other is almost unheard of sometimes. However, Croydon trio Bad Sign have managed the latter with finesse. Headline tours and support slots with acts such as Devil Sold His Soul and Arcane […]

Front Porch Step – ‘Whole Again’

Jake McElfresh – Front Porch Step to you and I has been riding the crest of a wave since his debut record ‘Aware’ dropped late last year. It was a record that was so packed with emotion, it came to no surprise that his music absolutely exploded, resonating on some of the most personal of […]

Glamour Of The Kill: After Hours EP – Review

Throughout this 5 song EP, Yorkshire’s Glamour of the Kill really show some balls. There’s fantastic choruses, glorious riffs and fantastic songwriting coursing embedded in here. Just shy of fifteen minutes long, they set their stall out and boy are they ambitious. The opening riff of ‘Lights Down’ sets the table for a cocktail of […]

Bad Ideas – ‘The Better Parts Of You’ EP

It’s almost hard to keep up with the amount of solid music that the UK is producing lately, and the high quality new releases keep coming thick and fast. The latest to join that current list is Leeds based band Bad Ideas, who have been steadily making a name for themselves over the last few […]

The Wilde – ‘Young Libertine’

In the last few years, Britain’s come back biting with the amount of new talent that it’s been lucky to have given birth to. Bands like Bring Me the Horizon, You Me At Six, Enter Shikari, and Young Guns have had staggering success across the pond in the USA and Australia, as well as tours […]

The Sky We Scrape – Broken Ladders

The twenty-five seconds of intro feedback on the Sky We Scrape’s ‘Broken Ladders’ EP elicit deep memories of bro-heavy hardcore shows in legion halls—that familiar tension conjures images of muscular, young men in black jeans and t-shirts, armed with electric guitars and bent at both knees before half-stacks in a battle-ready power stance. The imposing […]
