In Focus: Brit Rhythm Rules!

It’s easy to forget as residents of this sceptre isle, that we make or are the origin of practically all brilliant music. Britain sets the trends, has the infrastructure to birth and nurture young, exciting talent and the network of enthusiasts to support new bands. And what’s more, we’re pretty …



Live Review: Peace @ Birthdays, Dalston

To wrap up their UK tour, Birmingham alt-rock revivalists Peace recently undertook a four-day residency at Dalston’s Birthdays; day two of which featured London’s very own O. Children supporting. Having sold out all four dates very quickly, during the afternoon on the day of the gig – around a …



BOTW Interview: Jaws

We caught up with our current BOTW, Birmingham four-piece Jaws, ahead of an intimate London show at Dalston’s Birthdays. Against a backdrop of Black Sabbath’s ‘Iron Man’ – appropriately enough, given the group’s Brummie heritage – the much-hyped quartet filled us in on their love of prawn cocktail



BOTW Video: Jaws – ‘Friend Like You’

Having only been gigging together for a year now, you could certainly be forgiven for thinking that Birmingham’s Jaws were jumping the gun a little by releasing a video composed of tour footage for their latest single, ‘Friend Like You‘. Then again, the last twelve months have been …



Introducing our BOTW: Jaws

While their Brummie peers – and tourmates – Peace and Swim Deep have been making a big noise recently, Birmingham four-piece Jaws have been gathering their fair share of whispers as B-town’s best-kept secret. Oh, and they’ve also been making a rather big noise, too.

Introducing: Jaws

It’s been hard to ignore the nascent promise of Birmingham’s Jaws in recent months. The garage-oriented, lo-fi four-piece were – alongside their hometown peers Peace and Swim Deep, both of whom they’ve toured with – pivotal to re-establishing Birmingham as a centre for shimmery guitar sounds and a particularly …

Issue 61 Introducing: Wolf Alice, King Dinosaur, Strange Hands

Here are some new bands we wrote about in Issue 61!


Strange Hands
The flag bearers for French music, apart from our FOB artist Madeon have been Kitsuné and Domino artists. But what about the underground? The oh-so contagious and unstoppable psychedelia trend has spread to the scene …



BBC’s Sound of 2013

Each year, BBC News compiles a list of rising bands and artists.  213 UK critics, bloggers, DJs, etc. name their three new faves and BBC reveals the five winners of a longlist over the course of five days starting on New Year’s Eve.  This event is huge as it has …



EP Review: Peace – Delicious

Just like the juicy slices of neon watermelon atop some trippy murky-coloured water marble depicted on the cover of Peace’s debut EP, the four tracks contained within are individual segments of tasty psychedelia.

The Birmingham foursome have come true on the mass excitement that greeted  their initial online demos and …



Interview: Swim Deep

Swim Deep look like they’ve stepped out of a ‘90s Cameron Crowe slacker flick to lounge on your sofa and flip dejectedly through your magazines. Beyond the ripped denim and oversized Nirvana tees, though, they’re ambitious little buggers. New song ‘Honey’, all lumbering grunge bass line and chiming …
