And Burn – ‘Setbacks’.

And Burn – Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. And Burn are a band I’ve been meaning to sit down with for quite some time. I once saw them play at one of the all-so common all-dayers that permeate the Melbourne live music scene, Melbourne being nearest locale to the band’s home. And...

Mosley Bar and The ‘Royalties’ EP

Mosley Bar – North West England, United Kingdom. I will be honest and say that I haven’t really paid attention to those larger names in the world of Indie and Indie Rock for quite some time. I lost interest in favour of Punk and Hardcore about ten or so years...

Windover and The ‘Maze’ EP.

Windover – Minsk, Belarus. Hailing from Belarus and Minsk specifically, Windover are a band taking key aspects of the diversity of modern Punk music and twisting it to their needs through soaring and whirling crescendos, break-neck tempos, precision time signatures and utter catharsis. Maze is the band’s debut release, consisting of...

Manhattan Project – ‘Pistol Head // Deep In The Ground’.

Manhattan Project – Leeds, England, United Kingdom. Photo credit (above): Vision Photography. From what I can gather from my seat in the south-west, the music scene in Leeds is vibrant and alive and likely various other cliche terms used in short and snappy newspaper reviews. In short and in less...

No Loves – ‘Plum Crazy’.

No Loves – Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Nashville Punks No Loves are a band that have been in the game in varying forms for quite some time. The band formed in St. Petersburg, Florida in 1996 and since then have chopped and changed both membership and output more than just a...

Northern Horizon and The ‘You Let Me Down’ EP.

Northern Horizon – Newcastle, England, United Kingdom. The Newcastle-based Northern Horizon have been described in the past as a band that sound as if ‘Green Day gave All Time Low a songwriting lesson’ and have released their second EP that in many ways, is pretty-well summed up by the above statement....

Joee Johnson – ‘Turn Coat Tradition’ (Single/Video).

Joee Johnson – Bristol, England, United Kingdom. For our previous work on Joee Johnson – Click Here. For our work on his band Hush Mozey – Click Here. From the ‘Drowsy Rock n’ Roll’ of Hush Mozey and his varied solo-material, Joee Johnson is another on the Bristol underground music...

Good Wives – ‘Pride. Respect. Responsibility.’

Good Wives – Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. Cover photo credit: Crabb Visuals – Click Here. Ballarat based Good Wives have been in the underground music game for a little while now. A short line of single releases since late 2016 has led them to their debut mini-album or EP depending on...

Ocean Sunset View – The ‘On Your Marks’ EP.

Ocean Sunset View – Bristol, England, United Kingdom. ‘You can take the kid of out of the Pop-Punk but you can’t take the Pop-Punk out of the kid‘ – A prospective and wannabe Maxim that I just created upon reading-up on Bristol Pop-Punk three-piece Ocean Sunset View. I like to...

Seven Crowns – ‘Lightning Rod’ – Released: 07/10/17.

Seven Crowns – Bath, England, United Kingdom. Bath isn’t somewhere you would usually associate with visceral Hardcore Punk but maybe it should be. Seven Crowns are very much the epitome and comparison you look for in regard to veteran status in this underground and DIY Punk scene. The band’s collected...
