London-based trio Puppy have just released a stunning single with video entitled ‘Angel’ that fuses a thundering Smashing Pumpkins spine to a framework of sparkling Beach Boys harmonies. The dark themes that pervade the lyrics add another gothic dimension to this layer of contradictions, and creates a whole that is immeasurably satisfying and quite unique. …

When the musician and experimental hip hop iconoclast 03CAS emigrated from South Africa to the United Kingdom, he landed at London’s Heathrow Airport with little more than the clothes on his back. “It was the first time I was on a plane,” recalled the artist, born Caleb Mateus, as he recently recounted his early days …

Flaw Flower is the exciting debut LP from London-based musician Zoee, out now via Illegal Data.

Great news from Birmingham-born Londoner John Myrtle today, from whom we last heard a couple of months ago with the sprightly teaser track from his upcoming debut album, “Get Her Off My Mind”. That was his first new music in more than 18 months, following the mid-2019 release of the Here’s John Myrtle EP. He’s …

The sound fights for attention through the smoke filled room and the noise of drunken revellers until …
