SINGLE REVIEW: SHED SEVEN – ROOM IN MY HOUSE

Ahead of a packed tour spanning November and December, Britpop forerunners Shed Seven have set their sights on a resurrection of the early nineties through the medium of nostalgic, guitar-laden, riff-filled music. Upon my initial listen to the lates [...]

SINGLE REVIEW: THE RUFFS – ‘ALLIGATOR’

Deriving from Nottingham, The Ruffs describe themselves as a band whose music is ‘about everyday life with the occasional slow heart felt ballad’. As though it has been taken from a cook book on creating the next Oasis or Arctic Monkeys, The Ruffs d [...]

SINGLE REVIEW: SHAMBOLICS- CHASING A DISASTER

SINGLE REVIEW: SHEAFS – MIND POLLUTION

Oh look, these lads are from Sheffield! Prepare the comparison cannon and let’s fire off some false similarities between this Northern quintet and that group that made it cool to sing in your accent! Actually, don’t do that. SHEAFS may be an energetic, [...]

SINGLE REVIEW: BLACKWATERS – LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL

I feel it’s only fitting to give a short song a suitably compact review; if I dribbled on about this single for too long, everything would just get lost in a plethora of words and jibberish and all that. Thankfully for me, their SoundCloud bio sums them [...]
