60 SECONDS WITH… THE BLACK ROSES

  Coming from somewhere called ‘London’, The Black Roses consists of four distinctly Southern lads. This does make me question our name as a place of music journalism, but then again ‘Exposure’ doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it? Inspired by the [...]

Harking from the UK’s very own City of Culture, Hull , King’s Horses blaze buzzing, melodic alternative rock, deep bass grooves and obscure, poetic lyrics. They comprise of three good mates  – Ellliot Mann, Chris Arksey and Matt Barratt – who discovered [...]

60 SECONDS WITH… THE MOODS

Storming out of the heart of Manchester, and covering more musical genres than I actually knew existed, The Moods are set to shine this year, through their immense musical knowledge and highly politicized tracks; their latest single, ‘P.O.P’ is a great [...]
