Track of the week

Sam Fender ‘Dead Boys’

15/08/2018

The powerful, raw and profound ‘Dead Boys,’ shows why the momentum surrounding Sam Fender is only continuing to build…

It features Fender’s signature sharp indie sound.  Meanwhile, ‘Dead Boys,’ quietly yet assuredly proves that Sam’s voice as a songwriter is fraught with a rare level of insight for a 22-year-old.

The song handles the silent epidemic of male suicide in a sensitive manner and it’s a moving listen.

Hear Sam perform this brilliant track live in Newcastle on 17th November. This homecoming show is the final date of his first ever UK headline tour.

If you are affected by the content of the song please contact Samaritans, you can call them on 116 123.

Llovers ‘Go Get Her, Go Getter’

10/08/2018

‘Go Get Her, Go Getter’ by Llovers is sparkly indie pop at its finest. The tune sounds euphoric but its lyrics tell a more melancholy story…

One of the band’s co-frontmen Jack Brooks explained “‘Go Get Her, Go Getter’ is about the end of a relationship – more specifically how falling in love with the concept of someone, rather than their true selves, leads to multiple contradictions and a breakdown of communication.”

As ever, the boys bring their refreshing harmonies and jangly synths to the party.

Llovers have not one, but two upcoming appearances in the North East! They support The Old Pink House at The Cluny in Newcastle on 18th August. Alternatively see them in their native Teesside, when they play Westgarth Social Club on 7th September.

 

The Old Pink house – ‘Hearts Beat’

02/08/2018

‘Hearts Beat,’ could very well be the most anthemic tune from the band yet.

Frontman Christopher Brown gives a soaring, emotive vocal performance on the song. Meanwhile the other band members Max Middleton, Harry Smith and James Grant provide a polished synthy soundtrack, fitting with the band’s self-styled “cosmic pop,” style.

Here’s hoping this tune inspires a 2018 resurgence in power ballads!

The Old Pink House are definitely on top form ahead of their EP launch show, taking place on August 18th at The Cluny, Newcastle.

Swears- Righteous Din

27/07/2018

Swears are back with their third single ‘Righteous Din.’ Singer and guitarist Joel took inspiration from an encounter with an elderly couple who were spreading the word of God- and news of impending doom…

This became the basis for the conceptual track. It’s centred around a party/ gig going in a bunker as bombs drop outside. The video is even set in futuristic, post apocalyptic dystopia to match.

Ominous guitar riffs are combined with frantic chorus pointed at corrupt people in positions of power: “You get what you wanted / I can’t ignore it.”

See Swears perform ‘Righteous Din,’ and other songs when they support False Heads on Friday September 14th at Ku Bar, Stockton.

Talent Show – Dead In The Ground

04/07/2018

Great tunes and great beer. We dare you to try to name a more iconic duo, it’s impossible.

The newly rebranded Talent Show (formerly James Leonard Hewitson and the relevant people) have cracked this code with their debut single ‘Dead In The Ground’, pairing it’s quick-witted, doubled time beats with an equally hoppy brewed concoction from  Roundhill Brewery.

Full of down-beat trickery and dread in a 2-minute-sing-along in sheep’s clothing, ‘Dead In The Ground’ is the dance anthem for the downtrodden.

Grab yourself a taste of existential dread, literally, at Talent Show’s upcoming single release / un-bottling at Fisherman’s Arms, Hartlepool this Friday (6th July).
