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

In conversation with…Ormstons

A couple of weeks ago we had the pleasure of seeing Yorkshire based band ørmstons open up for the brilliant Elephant Trees at The Wardrobe in Leeds. The first time the guys were playing the venue must have been daunting but it was a near perfect set (we’ll excuse the sit down jump up effort) delivered with both power and prowess. Jess, Bob, Josh and Nathan looked … Continue reading In conversation with…Ormstons

Sunset and the Coalpit is a work of art. In conversation with…Baum Jr

March 3rd saw Baum Jr, a new artist fresh out of Manchester release new single “Sunset and the Coalpit. With a unique way of creating infectious synth-rock music, Baum Jr is a serious prospect coming out of the Manchester scene that seems to go from strength to strength with each song released. The concept at first seems strange; with a rock background combined with synths … Continue reading Sunset and the Coalpit is a work of art. In conversation with…Baum Jr

Local Hero Promotions Part Three – Courtyards

It seems a long time ago since I was traipsing my way over to the other side of Yorkshire to Holmfirth to see Courtyards headline Local Hero Promotions  first live show at the Picturedrome. For me though, the Courtyards set was so good that it feels only yesterday we were watching them kill it up on that stage and then kill it in the interview room … Continue reading Local Hero Promotions Part Three – Courtyards

Local Hero Promotions – Holmfirth Part Two – Palmes

The way this article ends is very, very different to the way it begins. It really is amazing that, going into the show at Holmfirth, Palmes were the band I was least looking forward to seeing. I thought their music was good but uninspiring, catchy but largely unoriginal and a bit like Ables Army took me a long time to get in to. Admittedly I am … Continue reading Local Hero Promotions – Holmfirth Part Two – Palmes

In conversation with…Bianca Lewis (Nova Neon)

We caught up with Bianca Lewis the lead singer of Nova Neon a sweet London 5 piece who combine beautifully bass riffs, trippy synths and haunting vocals. The first port of call, and for those who haven’t come across this incredible band was discussing their style of music. “Heavy pop or heavy pop alternative..” Bianca said was their style. “We combine pop, rock and soul … Continue reading In conversation with…Bianca Lewis (Nova Neon)

Local Hero Promotions – Holmfirth Part One – Able’s Army

Now those who love music and genuinely love music know when they discover something special. Unfortunately Able’s Army didn’t do that for me when I first listened to them (yeah unexpected start to this article I know). However, all it took was the volume on 2016 release Sober Side of Tipsy, to be turned up and I swiftly realised just how wrong I was and … Continue reading Local Hero Promotions – Holmfirth Part One – Able’s Army
