EXCLUSIVE EP PREMIER: THE SINKING FEELING - UGLY
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.

Feature: “If I…” with Talk To Angels

Bradford’s alt-rockers Talk To Angels formed in 2008 and within two years they had completed a 6-week US tour and appeared at South By Southwest. With an ever-growing fanbase, the quartet’s brand of hook-filled rock is gathering momentum with tracks like 'Hickory Dickory' proving to be bold, boisterous and energetic.

Already Heard recently sat down with the band take part in our regular “If I…” questionnaire. 

If I could re-record one song it would be…
Lee: I wouldn’t want to re-record any of my favourite songs so I think I’d like to take an awful song by Katy Perry or Britney Spears and do something crazy and unexpected with it. A lot of bands that cover songs like that nowadays seem to do it for the gimmick factor and I think it’s really disappointing.

If I could re-live one tour/show it would be…
Craig: I would love to tour America again, it’s an amazing country and that was possibly the best time of my life! We were invited by CMJ to play live in New York in 2008 which was a huge honour. After that we decided to go on an extensive multi state tour. We even went back the next year to play SXSW!

If I had the chance to play one venue it would be…
Mickey: Madison Square Garden always looked pretty cool to me! Or Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, which is a beautiful old theatre with a balcony, little boxes around the edge for small parties, and a huge stage. The acoustics are amazing in there, and there’s a great Indian Restaurant around the corner.
