On Monday November 3rd, Midland hardcore punk band We Fight Like Kids release their
debut EP, 'Superficial Behaviour'. However we're premiering their new video for 'Falconer'
right here on Already Heard.
For Scottish quartet Alburn, their latest EP ('Mouthful of Glass') has been a longtime coming. Having undergone a slight line-up since their formation in 2007, 'Mouthful of Glass'
showcases a significant amount of growth and maturity. We spoke to Pete Duthie to ask him about the bands background, that inevitable Brand New comparison, the Scottish music
scene and more.
On first listen we fell in love Noyo Mathis and knew that 'Endure' needed to be heard. It's post hardcore meets emo meets indie meets math rock. Take a listen to the full EP right here.
Without a doubt Neck Deep are one of this years breakout bands. After kicking off the year
with the release of their debut LP, 'Wishful Thinking', the Wrexham pop-punk five piece haven’t stopped touring since. From festival appearances throughout the UK and Europe to 2 months in North America as part of the Vans Warped Tour. We caught up with vocalist Ben Barlow and bassist Fil Thorpe-Evans at the Leeds Festival. They discussed their past festival experiences, supporting Blink-182, their up and coming UK headline tour and being
“leaders” of the UK pop-punk movement.
Packing stadium sized rock anthems with an incredibly striking emotional punch, and graced with one of the most staggeringly unique vocal talents to have graced the UK Rock scene in a long time, Cambridge’s Lonely The Brave have become one of the single most talked about new bands to emerge in recent years. With their debut album ‘The Day’s War’ finally released this week, Already Heard caught up with lead guitarist Mark Trotter and Bassist
Andrew Bushen at last weekend’s Leeds Festival.
Heat Vs Light’s new album ‘Murderers’ is far from the harsh title suggests. Full of ethereal guitars, unique arrangements and a mix of melodies in each track, this post-rock sound delivers more life than death. However, there’s a confusion between the instrumentals and the vocals which makes this album miss the top marks.
If you pick any track off of this album, the talent of this band’s musicians is really what shines. This is especially true in ‘Like Stars,’ which not only samples sounds of the ocean and thunder, but also fuses bits and pieces of different melodies and time signatures to create a full, coherent sound. Likewise is the story for ‘I Love You Donna Ingham + I Miss U Both Loads,’ which is a lush, vibrant, multi-faceted song void of J.P. Keenan’s vocals. This song builds by adding layers upon layers of sounds until it leaves you with an emotional and passionate song. This track is the best on the album, showcasing the bands innate ability to convey a story through music alone.
