Back in 2003, I was on holiday in America and I bought my first Less Than Jake album, ‘Anthem’. As soon as opening track ‘Welcome To The New South’ hit my ears, a song which talks of isolation, rejection, feelings of loneliness, I knew I’d found a band who I could relate to and got me, and it brought me a lot of comfort to know that others were going what I went through.

I dunno about you, but I’m already gearing up for summer. This is probably due in part to the fact that it’s April, the sun is (sort of) out, and we’ve just had a shit-tonne of bank holidays. But, it feels like Chester based three-piece Peaness have also played a significant role in the summer feeling pre-game thanks to their belter of an EP, ‘Are You Sure?’.

Rating:

‘World Peace Champions’ is the second helping that people get into the minds of Group Of Man; a fresh outfit consisting of former members from Hang The Bastard, Pariso, Mine, and Tempers Fray. So, just by looking at the line-up, you can already get a sense of what this band are going to be about.

Rating:

‘Our Future’s Not Dead’ is a 4-track EP from alternative rock quintet, Brightlight City. Clocking in at just shy of a quarter of an hour, this sharp-edged record doesn’t break the mould or give any great insights, but is held together by a fun energy that runs all the way through.

EP: Elasea – Lesson Learnt

Release Date: March 17th 2017
Label: Unsigned
Website: www.elasea.com
Facebook: www.facebook.com/elaseauk
Twitter: www.twitter.com/elaseauk

Rating:

What’s striking about Elasea‘s new EP, ‘Lesson Learnt’, is the strength of the two vocalists, Andy Bradford and Liv Jones. Both voices blend well, almost like a role-reversed We Are The In Crowd but with a lot more grit. As strong as Bradford is, it would be nice to hear more from Jones. However, the lyrics, when heard, can be weak. In places, the lyrics can get lost and it can be hard for the listener to follow a narrative.

Release Date: February 17th 2017
Label: Control Records

Rating:

It would be foolish to expect any large differences between William Control‘s latest release and ‘The Pale’; they’re designed to be consistent. Spreading his fifth studio album, ‘Revelations’, over four EPs, William Control has presented its next instalment, ‘The Black’.

ALBUM: Creeper – Eternity, In Your Arms

Release Date: March 24th 2017
Label: Roadrunner Records

Rating:

Creeper are a band who have been floating around the periphery of mainstream music for a year or so now. The sextet punk rockers from Southampton may have only been a band for three years, but they’ve gained themselves a rather large and dedicated following. With mainstream BBC Radio 1 airplay and being background music for the whole Busted arena tour last year, it’s a huge accomplishment for a band with only three EPs to their name.
