Sam Fender – Seventeen Going Under

Stories merge with heartache and a live-wire singer-songwriter plays his heart out for all to witness. He’s composed with his guitar and his words spring into life, and tender moments do help, but they’re not always apparent, or whole. Sam Fender is the man in the light, a man who has crafted many songs which ...

Asking Alexandria – See What’s On The Inside

Crashing down from the platform of supremacy must hurt. English metal band Asking Alexandria has done that and more with their record See What’s On The Inside. A fall from grace is forming, a rattle in the gears is causing problems, and this band, which was predominant in a scene swimming in imitators, ...

One Step Closer – This Place You Know

With a burning sensation to create music which alerts the senses and breaks boundaries, One Step Closer dutifully plays with their hearts on their sleeves. The band craft hardcore songs that resonate profoundly with the aching hearts, the people lost in themselves, and those who feel mystified ...

Tigress – Pure Vida

Never laying down to the status quo, English rock band Tigress expertly draws their future with their debut album Pure Vida. They do not fondle with tired formulas either as they embark on letting the world know they are here for the long haul. Breaking moulds has been their calling, putting out a record ...
