We are incredibly pleased to stream 'Ugly', the new EP by The Sinking Feeling. Straight out
of Glasgow, the band combine 90s emo with hints of grunge and dual male/female vocals
for a tastier treat on the ears. It’s a huge wave of 90s nostalgia from this Scottish 3 piece.
After taking a break last year, Hevy Fest is back for 2014 and even though it’s downsized
from 3 days to 2, there still loads of awesome bands on offer. With over 40 bands playing
over the 2 days, there’s bound to be some clashes. Already Heard is here to give you 10
must-see bands to see at Hevy Fest next month.
Influenced by the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Saves The Day and The Get Up Kids, Sheffield quartet O Captain have bucket loads of potential of their debut EP is anything to go from. Entitled 'Ghetto Hikes', the bands lyrical sentiment mixed with a stirring indie-pop sensibility quickly won us over. We spoke to bassist Ryan Smith to find out more about the band, their influences, what Sheffield bands we should be listening to and more.
Ww've got reviews and a whole load of live photos from UK Tech Fest 2014.
Having reached over the half way mark, July is a good time to reflect upon the smorgasbord
of great albums that have come out so far this year. Read on to find out what the Already Heard team picked as their favourite releases of the year so far.
After 2 years away, Sonisphere makes it return to the UK. Check out our full coverage of the festival.
Buffalo’s Lemuria are a strange breed. They play a brand of pop punk which manages to find fans in both the indie and the hardcore/punk scene. Since their demo in 2004 - a loud, shouty pop punk affair - they’ve wracked up an impressive thirteen releases with their more recent material featuring a more melancholic, subdued sound. They recently self-released their 2004 demo on 12” vinyl proving that, despite having worked with such heavy weights as Bridge Nine and Asian Man Records, they remain a fiercely independent band.
We spoke to the band about touring, Bridge Nine and the progression between their records.
‘Pebble’ by Lemuria is out now on Bridge Nine Records.
