With Queens of the Stone Age in the middle of a UK arena tour, we’ve decided to highlight
five of the bands best tracks for this edition of "Fives".
We've got the new EP from Yorkshire riff merchants NOSE right here! Take a listen to 'Sick
Continuing our Reuben theme from last week’s Fives and in celebration of frontman Jamie Lenman’s new double solo album, we take a look at two of the albums for "Versus". Its
‘Racecar Is Racecar Backwards' against 'In Nothing We Trust'.
Calgary's debut EP 'Fight Fire With Fire' is a bright, warming collection of indie pop songs.
With comparisons to Hellogoodbye and John Mayer, the four tracks showcase a band with pop sensibilities and plenty of potential to breakthrough. We caught up with the band to find out more.
Returning with their first album in six years, 'Balancing' sees Hertfordshire’s The October Game showcase dynamic growth and versatility with a brooding undertone throughout. Already Heard recently spoke to Luke Williams and Nick Kozuch to discuss the album in
more detail; the writing process, its various packages, and working with Scylla Records.
Birmingham’s Oceans Ate Alaska is a name that is slowly becoming familiar within the progressive metalcore scene, despite only being around a year old. Having recently signed to Density Records, this young quintet is gearing up to release a new physical version of ‘Into The Deep’, their début album containing bonus tracks.
First track ‘The Deep (Intro)’ starts the album off with ambient piano keys and the beautiful calming sound of the sea. But this is just a ruse as the quintet then launches a full-out assault upon the opening of ‘I, The Creator’, a track full of viscous guitar bites and a blistering bass line. During tracks such as ‘To Catch A Flame’ and ‘Taming Lions’ James Harrison’s displays the impressive vocal range he possess – guttural screams give way to melodic clean cuts, giving the album more depth rather than mindless, raging screams.
Birmingham’s Oceans Ate Alaska has signed to Density Records and will release a new physical version of their début 'Into The Deep' on November 13th.
