Latest Reviews

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 […]

REVIEW: Forever – Apollo Junction

We’ve all got them.  Got loads of them.  Velocity Girl by Primal Scream is one of mine.  Whenever I hear it, I’m transported back in time to my university bar, and I can see my mate Sean Carter shovelling coins into the juke box.  At 10 pence a pop for a single lasting just over […]

NEW: Shrink – Tom Lumley & the Brave Liaison

“Shrink” is the brand new track, and the second from the four-piece’s upcoming EP, Sign of the Times due at the end of this month. We’re now four months into 2020, and what a year it’s been so far for new music. Amongst the many negatives that exist in our society right now, the new […]

NEW: Artificial – Room D

I don’t know about you, but I’m just about done with this lockdown and I’ve give anything to be in a smelly field, surrounded by sweaty teenagers and old men who think they’ve still got it, right in the midst of festival season. Luckily, Room D have just released their brand new single “Artificial” which […]

Singles of the Week

Every Sunday, we choose six single releases to be featured on our blog. Usually five from the UK with an added overseas artist make the six! Check out our recent picks here.

Sunday 6 – June 7th 2020

MARSICANS – These Days With a debut album on the horizon, Leeds band Marsicans have been releasing hit after hit in 2020. Their new banger These Days starts slow then turns into a killer summer anthem with big riffs, addictive melodies and that recognisable Marsicans sound! BAD TOUCH – See You Again Bit different for […]

Sunday 6 – May 31st 2020

SHADER – The Time Is Right “TIME IS RIGHT is about rising up from self-destruction, or out of isolation, it’s dedicated to the underdog in society. It’s about the point where a someone decides to pull themselves together and fight against the thoughts in their mind”.  POST ROME – Want to Believe When asked specifically […]

Saturday 6 – May 23rd 2020

The Claremonts – Get Away, Get Away, Get Away A combination of gritty vocals, auspicious guitar pieces, and a Madchester driven rhythm section amalgamate to form The Claremonts. This new one is up their with their best recorded work; fast paced, grungy-scuzzy-indie music to go crazy to. Got I miss live shows and I can’t wait to see this […]
