Starting initially as a three-piece, Butterflies On Pins consists of Ross Liddle (vocals), Katie Green (bass) and Rob Alexander (guitars). The band has recently brought in drummer Paul Winter-Hart, while synth duties fall on Molly Vivian. The band might have only formed last year, but their sound is anything but juvenile.
JOYYA is a duo who exiled themselves to London from the North East, no doubt to find their slice of success. While many people who move to the capital looking for the same golden challis, they often have a love-hate relationship with the city. And the pair’s latest single ‘Horizon’ documents just that.
Lightcraft is a band that writes endearing songs that are free of constraints, and ‘Walk On Fire’ is no exception. Its spacious verses give singer Imam Wisaya Suratarun the opportunity to express his thoughts clearly without being overpowered by instruments.
Born in Glasgow, but fermented in London, Crooked Teeth’s formative years spent in the two cities has had a huge impact on their music. The jagged and euphoric analogue synths add a retro tinge to an otherwise modern sound, and the band’s latest single ‘Mountain Song’ isn’t any different.
‘Days Of No One’ is as haunting as the title suggests. Every aspect of the song combines to create a sound that is striking. From the slide guitar intro to the drawn-out chords of the organ hanging above the vocals, adding a sense of eeriness to the second verse; the song is a living, breathing …
The energetic indie-punks return with their second album Everything But The Here And Now. The album sees drummer Phoebe Cross taking on more vocal responsibilities; a great move by the band. Both Cross and vocalist Rich Mandell combine well together adding a new dimension to their songs.
Brighton-based Twilight Driving has all the qualities that make a decent indie-pop band. Their latest single ‘Soft & Pink’ tells of the hardships of falling in love. The story comes alive in the lyrics, giving the song a Bruce Springsteen/Brian Fallon feel. Add those powerful vocals to the confident and hook-driven guitars and you’ve got …
Until recently, Berlin-based outfit Murmur Tooth was a fully functioning band. Now founding member Leah Hinton is going it alone. Still operating under the Murmur Tooth name, Hinton is continuing to make the music she wants to make while retaining complete artistic control; having written, played, recorded and produced the entire EP, and we salute …
Anthemic single ‘I Let Love’ marks the next chapter in this multifaceted singer-songwriter’s career. Hero Fisher (not a stage name) tells stories in a way that puts her alongside leading figures of the craft. Most of all folk singer Jeff Buckley, Patti Smith and PJ Harvey.
Self Portrait is the aptly named debut album from Mr Yolk. The record is songwriter Samuel Jones looking inward, searching his vulnerabilities, humour and views. And the result is a record that is both personal and open.
