Review: TailBlock – Think or Be EP

“Life is all about the journey, not the destination”, or so the famous quote says. ‘Think or Be’, the second EP from Dartford three-piece Tailblock, embodies this perfectly. Over six tracks, we’re taken on a post-hardcore tour. And, while they haven’t quite reached what they’re aiming for, this is a>>

Review: Fangclub – True Love EP

Irish three-piece Fangclub have been making waves in the underground alternative scene over the last few years. Now, after gaining plenty of praise for their emphatic self-titled debut album last year, the trio return with their new EP ‘True Love’ – a release worthy of even more acclaim than its predecessor.>>

Review: Youth Man – Five Songs EP

Watch Youth Man’s ‘Live At the Lounge’ session and you’ll see a band putting every ounce of energy they have into their performance. The result is eight minutes of blood-rushing adrenaline, bringing back memories of old At the Drive-In gigs, where the outside world was shut off and you were>>

Review: Maypine – Bend/Break EP

Having removed their early pop-punk EP from all platforms, theoretically, ‘Bend/Break’ is now the debut EP from Brighton quintet Maypine.

Review: TRC – Lifestyle EP

You may remember TRC back when they were a seven-piece band experimenting with combining hardcore with grime and hip-hop. Now, the Londoners are down to four and have planted their feet firmly in the field of full-on hardcore but without losing any of their punch or originality. ‘Lifestyle’, is something>>

Review: One Flew West – Trial and Error EP

There’s been a shift in pop-punk over the last few years. The genre, once dominated with tales of young love and the occasional poop joke, has found itself trying to be taken seriously. The influence of emo music has seen songwriters get introspective for the most part, and whether you>>

Review: Lizzy Farrall – All I Said Was Never Heard EP

When Lizzy Farrall signed with favoured pop-punk/hardcore label, Pure Noise Records, last spring there was very little known about her. Nevertheless, the Chester-based singer-songwriter looks to change that in 2018 with the release of her debut EP, ‘All I Said Was Never Heard’. Over the course of its five songs,>>
