Freddie Future – Like It Never Happened

Are you tired of the same old tunes the radio is smashing out? You know the ones I’m talking about. The ones with too much reverb and autotune that makes you want to pull your hair out. Well, if that is what you are looking for then look no further. I present to you the […]

888- Pins & Needles

Imagine you are dancing in the middle of a club. The lights are beating down on you, the music pulsing, and your body in tune with everyone else’s rhythm. Then you lock eyes with someone across the dancefloor and the both of you smile. This is the image that plays through my head when I […]

Jordan Klassen – Virtuous Circle

When I first listened to Jordan Klassen’s newest single Virtuous Circle, I didn’t quite know what to make of his music. The second time I listened though, I connected to the song in a way that I hadn’t in a very long time. Jordan’s voice managed to put me in this temporary dreamy state. You […]

Comeback Kit – Slowall

A 1980s reminiscent, vocally powerful containing contemporary yet bespoke production? If that hasn’t enticed, then not much more will! The track is based around and iPhone loop, yet you would never have guessed unless told. A lot of thought has gone into the production, emulated by the seamlessness of it, but not enough to make […]

Migrant Motel – Different Kind of Leather

The song is a killer even before it fully kicks in. The sultry, expertly-produced vocals encompass a musician scope of funky beats and powerful dynamics which land somewhere in the patchwork quilt land of rock and indie. They do it well through – the track is ultimately a contemporary hit thanks to the prepossessing melodies […]

Polar States live @ Jimmy’s Manchester

This vibrant night took place at a rather intimate venue. Rammed full of people, even on my press pass I struggled to make it beyond the towering staircase in to the room. I had to squeeze past several longing fans and soon got used to the burning eyes in the back of my head from […]

Absalom

Last November I had the pleasure of stumbling across Absalom during their set for ‘We Are Listening’ – an event set up to raise money for mental health issues within the music industry, for the charity organisation, ‘Music Minds Matter’. Back then, the five-piece had no official music releases or even social media, they simply […]

Manalishi – Zipper Mouth

  You may love the distorted guitars, pulsating drumbeats and don’t-give-a-s**t attitude in Zipper Mouths by Manalishi, but your neighbours may not! Hailing from Manchester, the track finds itself in the patchwork quilt land of punk/grunge/alternative. It’s definitely not a song to forget and altogether is cohesive in its message to people who simply won’t […]

Dave Shurr – The Thread Connecting Us

Dave Shurr’s ability to create an affinity between the listener and simple, yet meaningful music continues with the creation of “The Thread Connecting Us”. All quotes are from Shurr himself. Shurr states that messing about with the fretboard created the square-shaped riff that is prominent throughout. It’s smooth and easy to listen to, and the […]
