Weekly indie fuel
30 January 2023
Who: Alt indie 4-piece founded by three friends from the villages of Cumbria (UK). They forged a sound alive with the drama of the sprawling hillsides that surrounded them and the local party scene they grew up in. Now based in Manchester and accompanied by their producer/drummer. The band released its self-titled debut late last year, followed by
New single: ODD DAY OFF
Third shared track from the new,
Adrian Ingham (guitarist): “All the wrong Chords in the right order.”
TUTV: A vehement guitar rocker, twisting and turning, electrified with
whipped-up riffs and nervous vocals. Another tenacious stroke from
these head-on Brits.

Band: MORON’S MORONS
Who: Rock gang from Poland, making an explosive
mix of 60sgarage/70s punk/80s hardcore/90s trash
New single: NIGHTVISIONS
From the band’s new, second, album out on 24 February.
TUTV: Expect a tsunami of diabolic riffs and vicous hooks,
untamed organs and jittery vocals. Garage punk hullabaloo
to start massive moshpits with. Moronic slam. Moronic fun.

Artist: BROCK PYTEL
Who: He was the singing drummer for late
80’s Montreal pop-punks the Doughboys
New single: ANEMIC HEART
TUTV: The jangly plangency of Dinosaur Jr. immediately popped up in my mind
when this pithy psych jam activated my ears. The electrically-charged flow and
the keyed-up vocals dominated this break-up outpouring. Score!

Artists: NOW AFTER NOTHING
Who: Darkwave duo – frontman Matt Spatial and
drummer Michael Allen – from Georgia, Atlanta.
New single: SICK FIX
TUTV: This steamed-up stormer is the notable result of a post-breakdown
and fight-back experience of Matt Spatial. Hysterical guitars, anxious synths
and hurried vocals build a towering wall-of-fired-up sound with a hair-rising
impact, bringing manic New York noisemakers A Place To Bury Strangers to mind.
What a sick slam dunk.
NOW AFTER NOTHING: Linktree
Who: A 4-piece that seeks to bring a personalized tone into the Nashville scene. Each member has their own feats and accomplishments that contribute to the band’s style. Influences ranging from metal mixes to opera & 80’s rock, the band hopes to showcase their personal style and unique approach to their music.
New single: PRISONER
“Prisoner” is about being captured and trapped by someone’s love. That feeling of
passion that one craves. The long but intentional guitar solos in the song embodies
that feeling. Carrying those notes long just like how much the singer is suffering:
long and intensely.”
TUTV: This mid-tempo power ballad creeps slowly but surely under your
skin with its anthemic dynamics, impassioned vocals and weeping guitars.
A melodramatic power stroke.
