Live Review: The Wombats – First Direct Arena

It’s 2019 – 12 years since the release of The Wombats’ debut record A Guide To Love Loss and Desperation and what a rollercoaster of a career it has been so far for the Liverpool indie-rockers. Saturday night saw the band headline their first arena show in Leeds, marking a huge step for the band, signalling a return to form for the three-piece that has been long overdue. I read a recent … Continue reading Live Review: The Wombats – First Direct Arena

Single Review: VENUS – Deranged

It’s not often I get genuinely “blown away” by debut singles. On the whole they’re often safe, just a glimmer of a band’s real potential and don’t really sound too ambitious.

This Feeling Big in 2019: BUTE

Of the vast list of artists This Feeling chose to be in their Big in 2019 list, one I hadn’t come across prior to the names being announced, was Welsh indie band BUTE. Hailing from Cardiff, the four piece are a band that seemingly have a range of influences from the heavier side of indie-rock (think Foals/The Strokes) and when I first listened to new … Continue reading This Feeling Big in 2019: BUTE

This Feeling Big in 2019: The Seamonsters

With festival appearances nationwide including coveted spots at Y Not, Sound City and their hometown festival Tramlines, the six-piece really made a name for themselves on the circuit last year. Whilst there were no new releases to add to 2017’s Max and Archie, Wonderland and Lost, the girls got themselves out and about, building their fan base … Continue reading This Feeling Big in 2019: The Seamonsters
