Vulpine Smile have announced two shows as interest in the band increases with the recent previews of their single, The Way it Flows. Combining soaring vocals with primal blues-rock and a psychedelic twist, the band play at Cambridge’s Corner House on February 24th as headliners, whilst the support The Black Cortinas at Bishop Stortford’s Half Moon on March 7th. See them now and brag about it for years to come!
A Tall, Butch Figure, with a long black leather coat, a black cowboy hat and sunglasses. This is the attire of the man who’s words will turn your world upside down.
With the a strong, consistent ensemble backing the vocalist, this track brings back the memories of listening to the likes Judas Priest for the first time, or gives me flashbacks to when i had long hair and mum would shout up the stairs, “turn the music down”!
‘Hypocrisy’ hits us early on with Punchy Guitar riffs, a heavy demeanor and a forceful shock to the system, however, as the chorus beautifully flows into a melodic and catchy venture, and with meaningful, topical lyrics, this tune is a guaranteed must-have in any Music lovers collection.
Oceans of Noise, the symphonic rock band from Istanbul, launched their new E.P. at London’s Omeara, one of the coolest venues in the city on 27th January. With an already sizable following, due in no small part to their lead singer, Sertab Erener, a winner of the Eurovision Song Contest in a previous life! Playing the self-titled release in its entirety, it showed the band to be as consummate a live act as they are in the studio. Definitely one to watch.

Already receiving coverage from big hitters like Hot Press, Survival Code, the Dublin/London duo who have built up a reputation for some incendiary live shows, release the first single from their forthcoming album, “Hopelessness of People” on Friday 2nd February. Titled, “Not Working”, it’s a perfect introduction to a band who draw comparisons with Royal Blood and Biffy Clyro. They had their launch for the single at London’s Nightclub Koli, along with a bill including indie-rock faves, Kid Kapichi. Look out for them at their other dates in the near future:

There can’t have been many in the industry that expected a form of music which was so Britain-based to have stayed the distance, but jungle is now firmly embedded as part of our musical culture and is all the better for it. December 22nd sees an almost unheard of coming together of some of the biggest names to have graced the worlds of UK jungle, reggae and ragga: General Levy; Navigator MC; Potential Bad Boy; Alaska MC; Sweetie Irie; Ras Demo – the list goes on and on. All will unite for a cause – Celebration of Life, which is supporting Demelza Hospice, and in particular the work they are doing to support the family of Jaden, a young boy with a terminal illness.
Fantastic line-up, fantastic cause, don’t miss out on your tickets.
We’ve all done the constant redial of ticket lines to ensure we don’t miss out on the gig of our dreams, but this may be the ultimate in blink and you miss it shows. Bryony Dunn’s debut single, Golden Girl, questions what it means to be a celebrity and this, combined with her peculiar writing spot of choice, has led to an utterly unique choice of venues – the classic red British telephone box.
About as far removed from the X-Factor farce of manufactured numbers and auto-tune Hell as you can get, Bryony will be playing her self-composed tracks to an exclusive audience of approximately two people per show (more, depending on how big they are), as perfect a demonstration of DIY ingenuity as you could wish for. Keep an eye on her website and social media for specific details and get yourself a copy of the track from 17th November.
