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

After 2 years away, Sonisphere makes it return to the UK. Check out our full coverage of the festival.
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.
