WAXX! – Rabbit Hole

I first heard about Norwich based band WAXX! when former Lord Vapour guitarist and Guernseyman, Henry Fears, joined their ranks and now, as they’ve been announced to play the 2022 Vale Earth Fair, I thought I’d take a look at their latest single, Rabbit Hole. A nice blues riff kicks things off before a dose... Continue Reading →

Hallan – Sich Übergeben

After a debut EP last summer, Portsmouth based band Hallan are back with a new single that’s already being lauded by the likes of Steve Lamacq on BBC 6Music, Sich Übergeben. Released through Nice Swan Records, Hallan are very much joining in the ongoing post punk revolution that seems to be washing over post-Brexit, post-pandemic... Continue Reading →

Phoebe Over – The Ick Factor

Blasting out of the blocks like the best kind of groovy stomper, Battleground throws back to the late 90s... Continue Reading →

Maisie Robbie – Milestone

Maisie Robbie is a new, Jersey-based, singer songwriter who this month has dropped her debut single, Milestone.

Led by an irresistible electric piano sound it soon establishes a fine groove... Continue Reading →
