Latest Reviews

REVIEW: Honesty – FEVER

A simple plea, sung from the heart, Hull’s finest five-piece, FEVER, release their soul-nourishing single Honesty. Throughout lockdown, one of the most engaging, entertaining artists on social media, playing lockdown sessions and more, have been Hull’s FEVER. Now they’re back with the full release of live favourite Honesty, and we’re already hooked over at H2NHQ! […]

REVIEW: Stranger – Vistas.

Sometimes in music as in sport, to be successful you need good timing and the ability to take your chances when they present themselves. Edinburgh trio Vistas appear to have this in their locker. While others dithered during this Covid-19 ravaged summer, Vistas seized the opportunity and released their debut studio album Everything Changes In […]

REVIEW: Only Human – The Receivers

FUZZED-UP INDIE-ROCKERS THE RECEIVERS RELEASE LATEST SINGLE “ONLY HUMAN”. Currently storming Yorkshire’s rich guitar scene, fuzzed-up York quartet The Receivers are last week released their latest single, ‘Only Human’. With top review already coming in from numerous blogs, I was excited to hear it for the first time being a true York local. For the […]

REVIEW: Can I Speak To A Manager ?- The Clockworks.

Since music began, lyricists have been trying to write words about subjects that touch everybody, love, life, loss. The Clockworks have hit upon the one truly universal theme of our time, one that we can all relate to – the angst brought about by trying to get anywhere with a major company’s customer helpline (and […]

REVIEW: Try and Entertain Me – Sounds Like A Storm

With Leeds United finally where they belong, the sleeping giants have been awakened, and I’ve said time and time again, it’s about time the Leeds music scene was recognized in the big leagues too. The return of Sounds Like a Storm helps matters, with their follow up to hailed EP “Classic Way of Things”, “Try […]

The Crooks – Volume 1

Just over three years ago, I set-up Halfway 2 Nowhere as a personal venture. A way of keeping a log of the great music I saw at underground festivals like Kazoopa in Leeds, the music that I found retweeted by peers, those special songs from special bands you think are going places. Over time, the […]

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 […]

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 […]
