Recorded at the same time as 'Fix Yourself, Not The World', The Wombats' new EP, 'Is This What it Feels Like to Feel This?' has great potential to match the success from earlier this year. The 2007 British indie genre may be long gone, but The Wombats are still going strong.
There aren't many records we can sit here and listen to on repeat. Yet, here we are, lying on our bedroom floor only moving when it's time to flip to Side-B and repeat. What album has us putting life on hold? Palaye Royale's fourth studio album, 'Fever Dream', that’s what.
For us, 'Death by Rock and Roll' was one of 2021’s top albums. Easily top ten for several of us at Bring The Noise UK and 18-months later it is still on heavy rotation on our turntable and in our headphones. So when The Pretty Reckless dropped a brand new mini-album packed with covers, acoustic versions and remixes of some of our favourite songs on 'Death by Rock and Roll', we were already sold.
Exploring our own lives can sometimes be uncomfortable, yet Pryti’s newest album 'Searching for Now Lost in Again' is taking on life as she expresses self-discovery, toxic relationships and a growing mindset. This album may be the self-reflection we all need.
The pandemic may have disrupted three years of our lives, but Nothing More used this time to craft their highly anticipated album, 'Spirits'. What can we expect from three-time Grammy-nominated Nothing More after five years?
Ever since their breakout single 'Chocolate' back in 2013, The 1975 have continuously stepped up the standards of what it is to be a successful modern-day indie-rock outfit. Fresh off the controversial 'Notes On A Conditional Form;, can The 1975 climb back up to the peaks their music has previously reached?
Boston Manor may have just released the most ambitious record of their careers so far, and it has us spellbound.
With 'NULA' under their belt, Vukovi have once again displayed their talent in blending genres and soundscapes into one coherent style, all while expertly tackling some pretty heavy subjects and juggling a conceptual narrative on top of everything. This is their best record so far, and there’s no doubt about it.
'EBM' is partly a return to form for Editors, and partly a leap into a new direction. The songs have a sense of urgency and immediacy that’s been missing for a while, but which has now found its way back into the sounds employed by the Birmingham collective. The addition of Blanck Mass, too, has proved beneficial, as it has breathed new life into the band’s sound, and we can’t wait to see where it will take them and how it will evolve further.
Behemoth are a 21st century black metal band who are creating a legacy. After their ground-breaking 2014 LP 'The Satanist', the band seemingly haven’t stopped touring. Their brand of brutality and at times, melody, has seen them go to the top of many festival bills. So, does their latest full-length effort live up to their previous work?
