EP REVIEW: Tigress – Who Cares

With just over a year passing since their last release ‘Like It Is’, Essex rockers Tigress prove that they still have much more to offer with their now third EP, ‘Who Cares’. Full of angst, power, grunge, and mixing both a raw intense emotion and punk presence to their already established alt rock template, this is the five-piece at their most relatable thus far in their careers.

ALBUM REVIEW: We Are Scientists – Megaplex

After half a dozen albums, rock duo We Are Scientists have been back in the lab to put together ‘Megaplex’. Long gone are the days of their once signature guitar riffs and drums; it’s now all about the electronic sound. ‘Megaplex’ continues to push boundaries, and sees Keith Murray and Chris Cain build upon their ever-evolving sound.

ALBUM REVIEW: Arctic Monkeys – Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino

After a five year hiatus, Sheffield rockers Arctic Monkeys have catapulted themselves into outer space, years away from the locales that inspired their first tracks back in 2006. The band have cleverly pivoted through each era, from scrappy upstarts on their early records, desert dudes on ‘Humbug’, to ultimate rock gods on ‘AM’. Their sixth album, ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ is Arctic Monkeys like you’ve never heard them before, and is perhaps one of the most divisive albums of 2018 yet. Read More

One of the founding fathers of the mainstream emo movement in the 2000s, Hawthorne Heights are back with their sixth album, ‘Bad Frequencies’, the band’s first full-length in five years.

ALBUM: Thirty Seconds To Mars – America

For the last sixteen years, Thirty Seconds To Mars have tested boundaries, transforming from their initial progressive/space rock direction of their self-titled debut to the acclaimed alt rock ‘A Beautiful Lie’, and eventually reaching the experimental, electronically driven pop-rock territory of ‘Love, Lust, Faith + Dreams’.

EP: Remo Drive – Pop Music

Pop-rock duo Remo Drive have certainly had a year of success. Having released their debut album ‘Greatest Hits’ last year, they’ve been on a constant stream of touring. Hailing from Bloomington, Minnesota, they’re now following up with more material in their EP, ‘Pop Music’. Read More

ALBUM: The Neighbourhood – The Neighbourhood

After releasing two successful EPs in September and January respectively, Californian rockers The Neighbourhood are back with their third full-length self-titled LP. Delivering a third album that lives up to the success of previous work isn’t an easy task, and though this effort certainly manages to retain the monochrome aesthetic that the band have generated for themselves, it unfortunately lacks in both originality and excitement.

ALBUM: Milestones – Red Lights

When first introduced back in 2015, Milestones were touted as one of UK pop-punks many bright hopes. After touring alongside the likes of genre heavyweights like Mayday Parade, With Confidence, and Simple Plan, the Mancunian pop-punk quartet have released their debut LP, ‘Red Lights’. Read More
