BTS never stop working and are back again with the first track from their upcoming album ‘Love Yourself 結: Answer’. The final part of their Love Yourself series, the song ‘Epiphany’ not only gives fans a taste of what is to come musically but lyrically too.
Ducking Punches, Death By Shotgun and Kill the Witness rocked The Wave Maiden. The intimate venue was filled with passionate fans and those who got drawn in by the music from downstairs alike. All of these people had something in common – by the end of the night we all loved the three bands that played. The night put together by Nerd Rage Bookings, gave us a range of the very best punk has to offer; from pop-punk to indie-punk all these bands gave us music that meant something
Old Note’s sophomore album, ‘With A Heavy Heart’, is set for release February 16th (Friday) through Old Press Records. The follow up to their debut, ‘former self’, is a healthy evolution. Unlike their debut, this record deals with much darker themes, including suicide, loss, abusive relationships and an overall unease with life. These troubling and evocative lyrics are paired with hypnotic guitars, heavy-hitting percussions and clean vocals that break into screams with palpable intensity.
I can’t think of a better way to kick off our new feature, Sing Something Saturday, than with Daisy Clark. With over 40,000 subscribers, this 19-year-old singer-songwriter from the UK has a large following for a reason.
Twenty One Pilots‘ second studio album, ‘Vessel’ turns 5 years old today. It was the first album I heard from the dynamic duo and its the reason I’m so in love with them. ‘Vessel’ is an eclectic mix of alt-rock, rap and ukuleles. This album is impossible to pin down; some songs are heavy on synths, whereas some are stripped back completely. It is this versatility that makes this album so loved by people with all musical taste.
Abbey Glover caught my attention with her original song ‘I Wish You Liked Girls’ and I’m not alone. This YouTube singer has over 100,000 subscribers and that video has nearly 1 million views. This new upload, ‘Lie to Me’, is raw and emotional and as beautiful as every song Glover shares with her fans.
Don Broco‘s headline show was one I have been looking forward to since it’s announcement. Alexandra Palace is such an amazing venue to be at, especially when it’s packed front to back and side to side. Don Broco, alongside State Champs and Counterfeit, did exactly that and had every single person in that room singing and bouncing along. The last time I was there was exactly a year ago to see Twenty One Pilots, and this show had just as much energy.
PVRIS released their sophomore album ‘All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell’ towards the end of August this year. Singles ‘Heaven’ and ‘What’s Wrong’ really helped give fans a taste of what was to come, but the album really blew those expectations out of the water.
Despite having been a fan of Picturesque since first hearing ‘Just Exist’ a few years ago, ‘Back To Beautiful’ slipped under the radar for an embarrassingly long time. Picturesque blend post-hardcore, pop and rock in their impressive debut album, creating a unique sound helped by the mind-blowing vocal range of singer Kyle Hollis.
The Talking Heads is a treasure hidden away in the streets of Southampton. Last night, one of their two deceivingly large rooms was host to an amazing show from 4 pop-punk bands. Each band was fantastic, with the crowd really getting behind every performance. The first night of tour is off to a flying start for Trash Boat, Broadside and Homebound.
