Mongolian Metal Outfit The HU Sells Out Brighton’s Chalk

Thu Feb 27 2020

The HU blends heavy metal, with Mongolian throat singing, and traditional Mongolian instruments, to create a unique metal sound. The group hailing from Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia has been disrupting the airwaves since their debut singles (‘Yuve Yuve Yu’ and ‘Wolf Totem’) went viral in 2018 gifting the band over 25 million and 37 million views […]

Joe Armon-Jones Provides A Welcome Escape From The Storm

Wed Feb 26 2020

Joe Armon-Jones and his ensemble played their trance-like fusion of dub and jazz on an incredibly wet and windy Sunday night in Brighton’s seafront venue, Patterns. The keyboardist and producer released his first solo album in 2018, which showcased him as a songwriter and arranger with his unique dub jazz. He was one of the […]

A High-Energy Performance From Metz

Mon Jan 06 2020

I first saw Metz on their first UK tour in Brighton, 2013. It was a cold, wet November evening, and they played in The Haunt to what must have been 20 to 30 people. Still one of the best live shows I’ve ever been to. I got to see them twice after that, once in […]

An Elegant Performance From Weyes Blood At Electric Brixton

Thu Nov 28 2019

‘Titanic Rising’ remains one of my favourite albums from 2019. Released last April, the album received critical acclaim for its incredible orchestration, production, and writing. The beautiful string arrangements supporting Weyes Blood’s stunning voice and backing vocals are real standouts on the album. Both give the music elegance and have a Phil Spector, Beach Boy-esque […]

A Real Trip From Flamingods At Brighton Komedia

Wed Nov 20 2019

Flamingods are a four-piece alternative rock band from Bahrain and the UK. Their album ‘Levitation’ was released earlier this year which was met with bountiful press coverage and praise. ‘Levitation’ saw Flamingods expanding on their influences (which are already noticeably eclectic) with nods to Turkish psych, disco, and funk. Their music has been described as […]

An Impressive Performance From Just Mustard At The Prince Albert, Brighton

Just Mustard released their debut album ‘Wednesday’ last year to high praise, earning them the support slot on the UK tour for fellow upcoming and Irish group Fontaines D.C. Their music has been described as a combination of trip-hop and shoegaze, with influences from My Bloody Valentine with their shoegazy guitars, and from Massive Attack […]

Green Man Festival Review

Tue Sep 03 2019

Since my first visit in 2016, Green Man festival has really outdone itself with another incredible lineup, great comedy, films, literature, idyllic scenery, and lovely Welsh beers. This year’s sold-out Green Man was packed with heaps to do and see. I think this may well be one of the best laid out festivals I’ve been […]

Sharky Releases Debut EP ‘Fruit’ And Music Video For ‘Touch’

Fri Aug 16 2019

With Sharky’s colourful EP ‘Fruit’ comes her new video for single ‘Touch’. A dreamy detached video that compliments the psychy pop production and dreamy vocals. The contrast from black and white to colour, the digital graininess and late night filming give the video a lovely nostalgic feel that pairs up to the single brilliantly. Sharky […]

Biblical Rain & Sunburn At Download, The UK’s Premier Rock Festival

Thu Jun 27 2019

I had wanted to go to Download ever since the spectacular 2012 line up. I was excited to finally see the UK’s second biggest festival, which is also one of the biggest rock and metal festivals in Europe. In the build-up to the weekend, there had been numerous reports of “biblical rain” and “people leaving […]

HEALTH released their fourth album, ‘Vol. 4 :: Slaves of Fear’ recently to favourable reviews, continuing to gain traction in the noise-rock scene. This was also the first album without guitar and synth player Jupiter Keyes, who’s been with the band since their inception […]
