In Conversation With…In Your Prime

“Under a carpet doorway” at Sucker Punch Festival, we spoke to the incredible In Your Prime before their main support slot. This bunch of young people are one of the most exciting bands I’ve seen so far this year both supporting The Elephant Trees and at Sucker Punch Festival and it was a pleasure to interview them before their inevitable rise. For those of you who haven’t heard of the band, … Continue reading In Conversation With…In Your Prime

In conversation with…Shadow Palace (featuring JUDAS)

Double Denim seems to go from strength to strength week after week. Friday 31st March was no different as JUDAS headlined Verve with a band we had never seen before in support. That band was Shadow Palace, a group of lads from Oldham who blew me away with their sound. It wasn’t britpop, it wasn’t indie it was an individual sound powered by huge hooks, … Continue reading In conversation with…Shadow Palace (featuring JUDAS)

In Conversation With..Fatherson

Sometimes, being a writer for a blog can be tough. Writing up interviews, writing reviews you don’t particularly want to, all in spare time. But at times you get to meet people you admire so much, and on the 10th March one of them moments happened. For the last couple of years, few bands have stood out more for me than Fatherson and they gave up … Continue reading In Conversation With..Fatherson

The Elephant Trees – Live Review and Interview

I have to start with an admission – before The Elephant Trees played their single launching set at The Wardrobe, I was very worried for them. In Your Prime, Ormstons and Conflare had been so, so good opening for them, having never seen the band before I was unsure if they’d be able to follow the preceding acts.Now I hate admitting when I’m wrong, but … Continue reading The Elephant Trees – Live Review and Interview
