You’re Not As _____ As You Think is a cathartic and ultimately uplifting third album from Sorority Noise. But it’s more than just another punk album. An open and honest insight into faith and depression gives us a fresh take on old and familiar feeling and shows us that after everything has collapsed, it’s possible to rebuild.
Retro Youth are rapidly gaining fans thanks to their quirky sound, merging rock- pop and adding some groovy twangs for good measure. The trio recently released their debut album B.R.A.V.E via Independent Ear Records, here’s what we thought.
As a band who have always had family at it’s core, it was difficult to see whether or not Eisley would continue after both co-frontwoman Stacy King and guitarist Chauntelle D’Agostino would no longer be a part of the band. Shortly after announcing these line-up changes, Sherri Dupree-Bemis took to the band’s social media to announce that they were recording the follow-up to 2013’s Currents.
Having become stalwarts on the British music scene for quite some time, it’s a bit strange that Deaf Havana were always somewhat overshadowed by the success of their peers. Having taken time to work their way around some line-up changes and other issues that threatened to pull the band apart, the truly impressive All These Countless Nights comes after a tough few years for the band.
2017 marks ten years of Lower Than Atlantis, their biggest UK tour to date and their fifth album Safe in Sound. Would the follow-up to their 2014 self-titled blow us away or leave much to be desired?
Decade’s debut release Good Luck was a frantic and messy foray into pop punk. It was released at a time where the modern wave of pop punk was teetering on breaking into the mainstream market. The album was firmly root in cathartic angst while being tinged by hints of alt-rock melody. However, their latest release Pleasantries drops this pop punk façade in favour of an alt-rock sheen.
One of the things that defines a Star Wars film is of course the soundtrack. Many would consider it sacrilege to even consider playing the tracks in any other way than George Lucas and John Williams would have intended, but that’s exactly what Galactic Empire have done with their debut, self-titled album.
Having been making waves in their native Sweden and across Europe over the last three years, Gothenburg’s OAK have returned with their follow-up to their 2014 self-titled record.
Ever since the release of 2014’s I Am King, there’s been an undeniable buzz gathering around Code Orange. Three years on the band are back with their Roadrunner Records debut, Forever. Kicking off the album campaign back in late 2016 with the record’s title track and an ominous video, Pittsburgh’s finest pick up exactly where they left off.
Less Than Jake’s live presence can easily be summed up with one word adjectives including ‘wild’ and ‘exciting’, but it is their latest studio work, their EP ‘Sound The Alarm’, which has certainly re-grasped everyone’s attention.
