‘Violence’, the newly released album from Editors, is both an incredible progression for the band while still maintaining the elements that caught everyone’s attention so many years ago when their epic debut album ‘The Back Room’ was released in 2005. Along with with bands like Interpol and White Lies, Editors have always been painted with …

The magnificent Editors are back with a new video for ‘Hallelujah (So Low) off their forthcoming album and tour. ‘Hallelujah (So Low) is on first blush a surprisingly jaunty upbeat number, starting subdued but then blasting away with a guitar heavy robust spine and the distinctive vocals. It feels like a progression from the quasi-Joy …

HEX, a three piece New Zealand band about to set off to the US to play at SXSW, have released a single off their forthcoming album “The Hill Temple” due out on 14 February. Called “Sight Beyond the Line”, this is an epic,dark and rumbling song leavened by sweet chanting harmonies – a curious and …

Peter Kernel‘s new single, “Men of the Women”, is extraordinarily exciting release in anticipation of their new album “The Size of The Night” due out on 9 March 2018. Featuring singer Barbara Lenhoff’s distant, almost disinterested vocals over an insistent bass line and an anthemic chorus that has an exotic Eastern European tone, this song …

In 1975, Rowland S. Howard wrote a song called ‘Shivers’, one of the best songs ever to come out of Australia and indeed anywhere (in my humble opinion) at the tender age of 16.

Vocal style alone, however, does not a great band make and SSA …

Glam grunge exponents, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (BRMC), are back with a vengeance on their eighth album, “Wrong Creatures”. The album was produced by the legendary Nick Launay (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds) and is due to be released on 12 January 2018. Their last release “Specter at …

“30 bloody years! Who would’ve thought it, eh? As we were well renowned for our, ahem, lifestyle choices, shall we say, I remember Melody Maker ran an office pool betting which member of The Mission would die first!” But survive they did – and they brought quite a few of us along with them, picked …

Gioumourtzina is a two-piece synth-heavy duo out of Thessaloniki, Greece. Their sound is a unique one, as it mixes and matches pieces of early 80s alternative, electronic, and Gothic vibes into a very modern sound. There’s a little Depeche Mode here, some Echo and the Bunnymen there, add a pinch of New Order and some …

Wave / Form – Terminal Gods debut album – kicks in with the fuzz fed guitar feedback, drum machine heavy intro to Shockwave and right from the off makes clear it’s intent. Their guitars are switched to power play, their synths set to stun,  all combine to compliment their lead singers undeniable baritone vocals and …
