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.
Pale People are a 3 piece rock/progressive punk band. A balding neurotic, a disabled music-school dropout, and a diabetic martial artist; this band combine vocals, piano, bass and percussion to create music with something important to say. We talked about Taco Bell, the origins of their band name and the motivation behind their music.
Tarah Who? is a three piece band that delivers raw, authentic and loud rock. The band consists of multi-instrumentalist Tarah G. Carpenter (vocals, guitar), Shaina Mikee Keiths (drums) and Matt Peltcher (Bass, B/G vocals). The LA-based trio deliver rock songs that bring together the best from all genres of rock, creating a truly enjoyable and energetic atmosphere. Tarah and Matt spoke to me about the band name, their goals and the most difficult song to play live.
Eric Gynan from Leaving Eden took the time to answer my questions. This rock band from the US have toured the USA, UK & Canada, sharing the stage with hundreds of the biggest national bands in the world including; Rob Zombie, 5 Finger DeathPunch and Marylyn Manson. We talked about the origins of the band name, the key parts of a song and pre-show rituals.
I’ve been following this band closely since the release of their first single for this impressive album. This album has been on repeat since its release a few weeks ago. With this album, Imminence present a mature band, refining their rock sound and combining it with electronic sounds and folk undertones. ‘This Is Goodbye’ is my favourite album of this year so far, if you haven’t heard it then you’re missing out.
Possibly their rawest album yet, ‘Cold World’ is the fourth album from Of Mice and Men. The band have had their fair-share of success already; their last album ‘Restoring Force’ reached the Top 5 in the Billboard 200 and they’ve shared the stage with artists like Metallica, Linkin Park and recently, Slipknot and Marilyn Manson. This diverse album jumps from intense metalcore to mainstream rock seamlessly, no doubt attracting new fans to the band from outside the metalcore world.
Kaleo have released a new music video for ‘Way Down We Go’, the band from Iceland are set to release their debut album, A/B, June 10th, and will be playing their first sold out UK show in London, July 12th.
The beautiful ‘Haze’ is from the band’s second album, which is currently being recorded. Like all Amber Run songs it is haunting, beautiful and catchy and definitely bodes well for their new album.
Set It Off have dropped a smashing video for their latest single ‘Uncontainable’. The orchestral pop rock group released their sophomore album ‘Duality’ back in 2014 and new music has been highly anticipated, their signature cinematic sound is back and stronger than ever. I’m already in love with this song.
