With Spring fast approaching and festival season starting soon, March sees a whole load of noteworthy releases. We take a look at five of the must hear releases this month.
Having only just formed last summer, Leeds punks Brawlers have quickly made a name for themselves for their insane live show. Now the quartet have unleashed their utterly brilliant debut EP 'I Am A Worthless Piece of Shit', an infectious collection of fun punk rock numbers. We talked to vocalist Harry George Johns to find out why the longtime friends formed
Brawlers and what 'I Am Worthless...' is all about.
After delivering one of the early contenders for album of the year, we catch up Modern Baseball to discuss ‘You’re Gonna Miss It All’, their forthcoming debut UK tour and miming
at the World Series.
In the second part of our "Studio Report" feature with Colt 45, the Cumbria punks finish their debut LP producer Romesh Dodangoda by recording vocals and more guitars. Take a look.
In the first of our new fortnightly feature where we highlight some of the most promising
bands in the pop-punk world, we talk to New York's Firestarter.
In the latest instalment of our "Tour Tales" feature, we join Wakefield quartet Morain on their recent tour supporting Durham four-piece Alexander.
With lead vocalist Matt Pryor having recently completed a solo UK tour, we highlight two albums from The Get Up Kids for the latest edition of "Versus". Already Heard writer Tom
Knott explains why 'Something To Write Home About' is "pure gold". Whilst Senior Editor
Sean Reid shows us why 'Guilt Show' shouldn't be dismissed.
When people talk about female fronted bands they are always compared to a very popular US band who everyone will have heard of. But Evarose are different, a complete girl band lineup, the Oxford quartet are definitely something special and are a refreshing change to all the heavy UK bands out at the minute.
Starting with ‘Best Left Alone’, the song has powerful guitar tones running through the song, with Dannika Webbers sweet catchy vocals the song is a great start to the EP.
The rest of the EP is just as impressive with ‘Educate Yourself’ and ‘There’s No Such Thing As Something for Nothing’ are both powerful songs that pack a punch. As Dannika hits the high notes with ease and the guitars come through their both catchy and power the songs through to a great end.
‘Change’ is a song you can easily listen to over and over again, what sets the song apart from the rest is the cleverly placed backing vocals that give it another edge. A simple yet heavy and catchy guitar tone mixed with the harmonic vocals it’s a definite standout song.
Finishing the EP, ‘Time Well Spent’ starts off slow and then it kicks in with the pounding drum and bass lines coupled with yet more thick guitar tones. Again the harmonic backing vocals give the song that epic feel and finish the EP off on a perfect note.
With ‘Elements’ hitting the number 3 spot on the iTunes rock chart and supporting Straight Lines on their UK tour in September and October the band look to have a promising future ahead of them and quite rightly so.
‘Elements’ by Evarose is out now and available to download on iTunes.
