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.
I Saved Latin are a four piece alternative rock band from London. ‘In Case You Were Wondering’ is a wonderful soulful six song EP, with melodic vocals and riffs. The music is inspirational; I Saved Latin has created their own innovative sound compared to the generic alternative rock band.
The record begins with ‘Wherever You Go’ , a beautifully composed tune, with use of delightful poetic guitar riffs, a slow paced tempo and the soft sweet voice of Alex Crowley. The album progresses with ‘Today’ which has a wonderful catchy tune and the drums have a more dominating rocky sound. The favourite from the EP is ‘In Time’. It begins with a wonderful deep base introduction collaborated with awesome guitar riffs. The song has a wonderful high speed punk tempo, with an awesome catchy chorus.
‘I’ll Give To You’ is an upbeat pop-punk inspired tune, the backing vocals add another dimension to the record. ‘Forwards and Back Again’ is of a similar style, but with strong powerful vocals and instrumental melodies. ‘The Scene & The Setting’ has a wonderful captivating instrumental introduction. The song goes back to the slower paced tempo mixed with superb poetic vocals.
The entire EP is simply mesmerising and addictive. The record is filled with superb music and beautiful vocals. I Saved Latin will be your new favourite band after giving ‘In Case You Were Wondering’ a listen. This small band have created something truly amazing, they deserve a lot more recognition. I can’t wait to see what they produce next, and look forward to their first album to be released.
‘In Case You Were Wondering’ by I Saved Latin is now.
