Paper Tigers’ debut single ‘Gucci Smiles’ is a monster. In a little over three minutes, the Northern Irish rockers unveil a range of great hard rock sounds. Between a hard driving verse where the drums come with a near relentless attack, through to a massive chorus where melodies are at the forefront, the band seem to constantly pull between aggression and melody.
Over the past three years, Novustory have gigged around Europe, built a loyal UK following and perfected a rock sound that mixes classic rock and goth, taking a pinch of Paramore along the way.
Back in 2016, alternative rock band’s Dearly Beloved’s fourth album ‘Admission’ was their most consistent release to date. The kind of record that really deserved to boost their fan base, it led to a successful UK tour with Tommy Stinson’s Bash & Pop.
It’s been three years since Canadian alt-rock band Dearly Beloved visited UK shores and even longer since they last released an album. There is finally some good news for lovers of this underrated band, as a new album entitled ‘Times Square Discount’ is due for October release. The band will be promoting the record on a long Euro tour with Lou Barlow’s Sebadoh.
Since the demise of his indie rock band My Cruel Goro a few years ago, Andy K. Leland has immersed himself in a world of very lo-fi singer songwriter songs. His last EP was so DIY, it was possible to hear the creaking of floorboards as he played.
His new digital single ‘A Chair Is A Chair’ continues down an ever introspective path, this time with his sparse acoustic work joined by drone guitar and mellotron. The track has been complimented by a no-frills, lo-fi, VHS inspired video clip, which you can now view in full below.
