ALBUM REVIEW: Deaf Havana – The Present is a Foreign Land

Deaf Havana are a band that have changed and grown with every release and have never shied away from making big alterations to their sound.

'They Fear Us' is a glow-up, a total triumph and one of the absolute highlights of 2022, and if people don’t get behind Ithaca now the way they have some others lately, they will be letting themselves down.

ALBUM REVIEW: Vatican – ULTRA

2022 has been a year full of ups in the music industry, with many bands returning from hiatus, stacked festival line-ups and a constant supply of music being released that satisfies the ears of anyone who presses play.  Clearly wanting in on a piece of the action, Vatican decided to drop their new album 'ULTRA' - here's what we thought of the band's latest release.

ALBUM REVIEW: The Faim – Talk Talk

It’s undeniable that nobody loves touring more than The Faim, so what better way to release an album than in the midst of a UK, Europe and Australian tour. Several songs featured on their upcoming album 'Talk Talk' have been previewed during their live performances, leaving fans restlessly counting down the days until they can hear the album in full.

ALBUM REVIEW: Conjurer – Páthos

Conjurer are one of the UK’s best metal outfits that you may not have heard of. Their 2018 debut 'Mire' added a sound that the extreme metal scene has never heard before. Years of touring and perfecting their craft have passed, and 'Páthos' is the result. So, has it been worth the wait?

ALBUM REVIEW: Mothica – Nocturnal

With 'Nocturnal', Mothica continues to prove that the alt-pop and heavy music spheres shouldn’t just co-exist - they can safely bump into one another, as when they do, great results can and do come out. By taking her past and present experiences with trauma and mental illness, and coating them in poppy melodies driven by heavy guitars, she has crafted one of the finest and heaviest alt-pop albums in recent memory, if not of the whole year.

ALBUM REVIEW: Foals – Life Is Yours

Atmospheric indie mainstays Foals have renewed a new lease of life, one which they lived out on their 2008 debut 'Antidote'. Where 'Antidote' tapped into the dancey rhythms of 'Red Socks Pugie' and the fun-filled grooves of 'Olympia Airways', Foals have dusted off their dancing shoes fourteen years later and swept the dance floor they once departed, for an album full of bliss melodies, sun-soaked vocals and clear blue waves of joyous escapism.

ALBUM REVIEW: Cancer Bats – Psychic Jailbreak

This is a band who has seen it all, ridden every wave and have continued to deliver a ridiculously high standard of output for almost two decades at this point. Some things are certain in life… You live, you die and Cancer Bats rock with the best of ‘em. Here's what we thought of the band's seventh album, 'Psychic Jailbreak'...
