The Strokes are back. The American five piece indie band has released their first studio album in seven years and the name is perfect for these unusual times.‘The New Abnormal’ takes us on a synth wondrous ride with the ingredients for an incredible album. This 1980’s sound laden album is a stark move from 2013’s ‘Comedown Machine.’

Meteora ~ Numb Cover
Meteora, the “Symphonic metal band” from Hungary, has been hard at work writing and recording their second album ‘Tragedy of Delusion.’ With a grandiose sound rivalling that of related artists such as Nightwish and Epica, they have not only created a ten track album of original, heavy rock songs but have treated us with a cover of the influential alternative rock band Linkin Park’s ‘Numb.’ Having time left over from recording, the band decided to go with an idea they had for a while; including a cover. With much deliberation between band members and their fans, Meteora decided to go with the dark yet powerful ‘Numb.’

Bethany is only 21 but has now released her fifth single; impressive right. The Dartford based singer makes electro-pop music which she draws inspiration from trap and rnb. Her love of “heavy basslines and EDM” vibes really show through her body of work.

Green Day ~ Father of All Motherfuckers, Homage to good old fun Rock n Roll
This is always an exciting time for Green Day fans such as myself. The build up to a new Green Day release is always met with a frenzied hope, but also a deep trepidation. This has been no different with the band’s thirteenth studio album, ‘Father of All Motherfuckers,’ their shortest and maybe most rock n roll of the lot.
Bombay Bicycle Club ~ Everything Else Has Gone Wrong
‘Everything Else has Gone Wrong’ is a strong relaunch. It is perfect for the age we live in, unsure of what the future holds or even what the present is grasping. As with the band’s sound, maybe they don’t know where their music is taking them, but we can be sure, when everything else is going wrong, we’ll always have Bombay Bicycle Club to put things right.
SLØTFACE ~ Sorry For The Late Reply
The wait has been long, but the sophomore record of Norwegian pop punk band Sløtface is finally out. Since it has already been over a week since the release, and we have all had the chance to listen to it on loop, I think it is high time we dived deep into it. ‘Sorry for [...]
KANO ~ HOODIES ALL SUMMER TOUR DRUMSHEDS REVIEW ☀️
As the first few chords of 'Free Years Later' opened the show, we heard a girl behind us say "this is going to be some spiritual sh*t" and we felt it too. Kano took us to the endz, to church and back again blessing us with as much of his 15 years worth of material that he could cram into 2 hours.; he brought the garage, grime and gospel vibes.
Blossoms ~ If You Think This Is Real Life

Since their acclaimed self-titled debut in 2016, the band has gone on to become one of the most interesting alternative pop acts of the British scene. This ten tracks piece is the confirmation of their potential. The times in which Blossoms were a promising band are long gone; they are not the future, they are the present.
