Apologies for the lack of posts over the last week – we’ve been very busy enjoying ourselves at loads of shows, culminating in the The Great Escape festival last weekend. We will share more on TGE over the coming weeks – in the meantime here is some musical news that’s got us excited over the past few days.
Flash Bang Band – ‘If You’re Driving’ – NEW Single & Video
We have a special affection for Flash Bang Band, as they played on the bill at the first show we ever co-promoted. They are quite bonkers in a very lovable way, but also have a knack of unearthing great hooks and then playing them very, very loud.
They have an album coming out on ‘At The Helm’ later in the summer, but preceding this is new single If You’re Driving, which is released on the 3rd June. The video follows a pair of feet on an interesting day-out, we have no idea what it’s about but like it regardless!
Hella Better Dancer – Sleep (demo)
We were very excited to see Hella Better Dancer play in Brighton last week. We are going to post an interview with them soon, but in the meantime have a listen to the band’s last output ‘Sleep’ (it may even still be available to download for free)
The Self Help Group – BBC Introducing: The South
‘Not Waving, But Drowning’ by The Self Help Group continues to be one of our favourite albums of the year to date. We’ve also been lucky enough to catch the band playing live on a few occasions and would highly recommend you do as well, if the opportunity presents itself. If not, then they recorded a live session for the local BBC station. Their first offering is ‘The Rapture’, which might well be our current favourite of theirs – and definitely a highlight of the live set. Enjoy!
