Talkboy - Matthew Paul Butler - Sunset Sons - Mush

Talkboy make their sixth Beehive Candy appearance with 'Hollow Spheres' and once again the Leeds sextet impress, this time with an emotive indie rocker. === Matthew Paul Butler shares 'Mockingbird' a highly impassioned new folk song that is majestic, powerful and quite intoxicating. === Sunset Sons have released a lyric video for 'Superman' which is a splendid rock anthem and precedes a UK and European tour and new album. === From Mush we have 'Eat The Etiquette' where the vocals are just plain out there, the music somewhere between indie rock and punk, with hooks flying in all directions. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Talkboy - Hollow Spheres. Shifting between epic moments of joyful indie pop, interspersed with emotional and engaging songwriting, Leeds sextet Talkboy demonstrate their glittering potential in debut EP Over & Under, set for release 1st November via Come Play With Me

Talkboy - Chernobyl Sunshine Club - Reason Define

A band that continue to impress us is Talkboy who return for a fifth time here with their new single 'All Works Out'. This time the rock aspect of the band is more to the fore, with their ability to produce melodious material still underpinning the piece. London's Chernobyl Sunshine Club have shared a video for 'Birthdayland' a creative mixture of Alt Folk and Indie Rock that combined result in a fabulous song. There was a time when classic hard rock appealed to me and Reason Define and the song 'Reaper' has in part rekindled that enjoyment, the melodic female vocals are at the core of that attraction and a good few hooks along the way helps. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Talkboy - All Works Out. Hitting up the BBC Introducing stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals later this month and primed to take full advantage, fledgling six-piece Talkboy announce th

Talkboy - Jenn Vix - Nathan & Jessie - Jacko Hooper

Talkboy return for a fourth time on Beehive Candy, this time with 'Wasting Time' another gorgeous indie pop (with a touch of rock) song, firing melodic hooks in all directions! We featured Jenn Vix a couple of times in 2017 and she is back with a new E.P '6' of which we can share the video for 'Ride' the first song in the collection and a good indicator of the quality of her highly engaging electro pop. We have two wonderful songs from Nathan & Jessie whose mixing of jazz, folk, country and more is simply incredible, expect up-skilled talent, you won't be disappointed. First featured here in November last year Jacko Hooper is back with a video for 'Sidelines' and for a change we have added some reviews from others, equally impressed by his material and vocal ability. Talkboy - Wasting Time. Taking things up a notch with sparkling new anthem Wasting Time, Leeds sextet Talkboy reaffirm their budding status as one of Yorkshire’s most exciting

Edmond Jefferson & Sons - Talkboy - Orla Gartland - The Great Escape

Swiss band Edmond Jefferson & Sons create a beautifully atmospheric vibe with a level of energy simmering and slowly building both vocally and musically. Talkboy's lively indie rock/pop is infectious with 'Someone Else For You' going someway to explain the growing interest in this fine band. We have a thought provoking and personal song from Orla Gartland where her melodic vocals are outstanding. The Great Escape take us on a creative sonic journey with delicious vocals and a beautifully constructed musical arrangement with hints of psych and quirkiness, leaving me looking forward to the series of releases they have planned for the year. Edmond Jefferson & Sons - The Winter. Oscillating between explosive riffs, dark rock and soft ballads, their music is perfectly harmonised by organic sound textures and a mesmerising voice... A few weeks after unveiling the single "Helsinki", Swiss 70's alternative / explosive-blues rockers Edmond Jefferson &a

High South - Lightfoils - Talkboy - Gustave Tiger - Astari Nite - Neville & Sugary Staple - The Great Escape
