no food in Tesco,

no petrol in the station
thanks for voting leave.

Let’s Eat Grandma // Hall of Mirrors
Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth are back with this slice of euphoric electro-pop. It looks like album three could see the duo seriously troubling the top paragraph of festival bills in 2022.

BLACKSTARKIDS are building a pretty sick repertoire of tracks in preparation for their PUPPIES FOREVER album arriving in October. ‘ALL COPS ARE BASTARDS’ is a switched-on statement, peppered with Dirty Hit’s sense of pop fun.

Findlay // Life is But a Dream
With dreamy psych vocals dancing over a a handful of pop piano chords, Findlay’s first new music since 2017 is worth the wait.

Haich Ber Na // The Last Time I Saw You
An ever-evolving vessel for stone-cold bangers, artist/producer Haich Ber Na channels psych & and a little disco in ‘The Last Time I Saw You’.

deathcrash // Horses
If you haven’t witnessed deathcrash’s ethereal live show yet, then you haven’t lived. The post-rockers have released the wistful ‘Horses’, alongside a video that we could watch over and over.

Bartees Strange // Weights
Bartees Strange is proving to be one of music’s great chameleons. After picking up a world of accolades for last year’s Live Forever LP, ‘Weights’ carries the dignified momentum of TV On The Radio and the bite of Turnstile.

Mandy, Indiana // Bottle Episode
‘Bottle Episode’ sees Mandy, Indiana fuse jarring punk soundscapes with a danceable energy. With support slots coming up alongside TV Priest, Scalping and The Horrors, they just might be your favourite band’s favourite band.

Grandmas House // Girl
Join Bristol trio Grandmas House on a picnic and let them serenade you with 3 minutes of room-shaking punk goodness. They’ve even brought cake.
