REVIEW: The Non-Stop EP – Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard.

I’ve never quite understood the concept of the EP. It’s neither one thing nor the other. The first one I ever bought was The Human Leagues’ Holiday 80 EP, 3 tracks with a total running time of just over 10 minutes. Cardiff based glamsters Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have released, by comparison, a behemoth. The Non-Stop […]

Single Review : The Time Is Now – The Rah’s.

To say I’m excited about this release would be an understatement. I first heard this song over a year ago, and it blew me away then. I’d gone along to Zanzibar in Liverpool to a Sister Midnight event to see the headliners, but was so impressed by one of the the supporting bands that I […]

Single Review: All My Life – The Lathums.

There are some things that you should know instinctively. Wear sunscreen in the summer. Don’t eat yellow snow in the winter. Any track released by The Lathums is going to be a corker. All My Life is The Lathums first release for Island Records. It was recorded at Parr Street Studios, and produced by James […]

Artist of the Week – The Novus

We’re back in business and music is ready to take centre stage on Halfway 2 Nowhere again. I’ve been quiet during lock-down, working out what’s best for the blog going forward and I’m delighted to launch our Artist of the Week series. Each week – this music blog will feature one artist that we think […]

Single Review: Waiting For The Rain – Andrew Cushin.

Andrew Cushin is more than a talented singer songwriter. He’s a troubadour, a lyrical poet who roams from town-to-town telling his touching tales. If you haven’t heard of him yet, you will do soon. I was lucky enough to see one of his last performances when he appeared on a This Feeling event at Brudenell […]

Single Review: Modern Times – Reclaim Vienna.

Releasing an unexpected lock-down single, based on remote writing and isolation demos is a ballsy move. With their surprise digital release Modern Times, I think that Reclaim Vienna just about pull it off. I’ve really liked the earlier songs from Reclaim Vienna. With their anthemic guitars, synth loops and driving drum beats on songs like […]

Track of the Day – Will I Ever Love Again

George Hughes has released his debut track Will I Ever Love Again? It’s a lockdown triumph, with a “Cinammon” folk line running through the track. You can’t help but tap your feet to this and I’m struggling to get it off repeat! Big working from home vibes and I like this a lot. Leeds based […]

Single Review: Time is Right – Shader.

One of the reasons for doing this job is to bring to your attention to some of the best new music that is out there. My role here today is rather redundant. If you are not aware of Time Is Right by Shader – WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? Or perhaps the question should be WHERE […]

Single Review: Last Days – Take the Night.

‘Nostalgia is much more than reminiscing. It’s a feeling’, so say Gateshead duo Take the Night (Tom Homan and Dave Charlton). With their new single Last Days they have captured the feeling of mainstream Eighties synth-pop to perfection. In fact, when Halfway 2 Nowhere editor Adam, sent it to me I thought it was a […]

Single Review: Never Know – The Links.

I’ve been in lacking in motivation recently. A combination of lock-down fatigue and ‘Isolation Gig’ overload have left me somewhat in the doldrums. But then the new single Never Know from Edinburgh four-piece The Links dropped into my in-box and shook from my torpor. Never Know is the second single from The Links following on […]
