Reviews, playlists and opinions on the bands I feature on my radio show, "UNSIGNED,SEALED AND DELIVERED" which you can listen to every Wednesday 4-5pm on LSRadio.co.uk
I'm a media student at university of Liverpool and present a show on student radio featuring unsigned and new bands. I spend most of my life trying to find new and exciting music to play on my show and I made this blog to share some of it with you.
As the weather heats up ( as much as it ever does in the uk ) and the festival scene in full swing what better time to listen to some brand new music from beach punk band Reminders. The Isle of Wight trio released their debut E.P last week on local indie label, Chalkpit records and it’s definitely worth a listen. The E.P, named ‘Water sports and major cities’ has 4 tracks, two of which are their previously released singles,’ Purple Stripes’ and ‘If I know you’ and two new tracks, ‘Handbrake’ and ‘I’ll be fine’
Reminders are a cool af three piece beach punk band from the Isle of Wight who are beginning to make waves beyond the island with their Beach Boys meets the Ramones kinda vibe, most definitely not to be confused with hip hop band The Reminders from Colorado Springs U.S.A.
Skyfever are a four piece alt rock band from Dublin who have been played on Irish, UK and US radio and following the release of their debut EP Means of Escape last year have just dropped a new single, The Returning, on March 31st. I spoke to their guitarist Tyson about the origins of the band, their new single and their hopes for the future.
On what was possibly the coldest, wettest, windiest night since I arrived in Liverpool in September, I set off with eager anticipation to Olympia with my two best friends full of excitement to see Blossoms for the second time knowing that it was going to be a gig to remember. I can only say that it surpassed all my expectations – what an amazing night!
You know when you listen to something new for the first time not knowing quite what to expect and it is nothing like you would imagine and blows your mind somewhat? Well that was my experience of listening to the Isrights.
Having put teasers on social media for the last couple of weeks, Brighton 4 piece psych-rock band, Black Honey have today finally dropped their new single, Somebody Better. It’s a touch of Americana with a memorable infectious chorus – “I guess I’ll learn to be somebody better, I won’t get burned, I’ll stay here forever” -and a slightly retro twisted 50’s guitar sound complimenting Izzy B Phillips’ Lana del Ray meets Debbie Harry style vocals, this song conjures up images of Thelma and Louise style road tripping along Route 66 in a pink Cadillac convertible wearing heart-shaped shades with the wind in your hair. It’s a refreshingly summery antidote to a dull Liverpool afternoon, and I loved it.
