Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

7 August 2019

Band: DRY CLEANING

Who: A fresh intriguing London based quartet ready to make their mark which was obviously clear when they dropped their debut single ‘Magic Of Meghan’ last month

Track: GOODNIGHT – the second single from their upcoming EP – “a song, partly about feeling fed up with YouTube ads suggesting that we ought to work harder, and that our relationships might fail and partly about feeling uplifted by openness on the internet.”

Score: What you get is a both nervously pushed and weirdly magnetizing stream of electricity driven by an intensive rhythm section developing a punchy pace, fueled with wayward guitars riffs and the pithy spoken word performance of singer Florence Shaw on top of it all. Pretty special sonority, pretty special band for the near future. Catch their drift right here…

British Post Punks CROSS WIRES Amaze With New Single ‘PARADISE CLUB 1953’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

5 August 2019

Turn Up The Volume featured sturdy quartet CROSS WIRES – from Bethnal Green/Romford, UK – several times before as their razor-sharp post punk inspired outpourings hit bullseye frequently. Back in December 2017 they issued a selection of their first recordings via a mini-album called Living In A Radio City. But now the band is about to launch their first proper full length, titled ‘A Life Extinct’, out this Autumn.

Ahead of it comes amazing lead-single ‘PARADISE CLUB 1953‘. Musically definitely a
giant leap forward. The band, unmistakably, have broadened their musical boundaries. This new track is a two-faceted killer stroke, with a sort of sonic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde approach. It all starts with a long slow-burning perfervid intro turning into a heated flare-up, only to restart the intensive dynamism of the irascible intro and repeat its hypnotizing impact until furiosity hits again. Top stuff! Tune in here…
