all out for you.”

Score: This is a massive blazing guitar oiled ripsnorter that will pump up your activated body’s temperature to a cooking level. The band’s scream for help is boisterous and clear,

Brighton’s ANIMAL HOUSE Twists And Shakes On New Blustering Single ‘MODERN ROMANCE’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

11 October 2019

After their tremendously bouncy September single Legs Out For Summer Brighton‘s swirling collective ANIMAL HOUSE already return with another new piece from their upcoming debut album ‘Premium Mediocre’, out 15th November.

Frontman Will McConchie says about new one ‘MODERN ROMANCE’: “Why does everyone on tinder go to Machu Picchu? You can now pay a guide to accompany you up the famous mountain to take photos of you whilst you hike the mountain. Wedding photographers in Los Angeles are now getting more bookings for dating profiles than weddings. It’s all pretty weird, so is this song.”

Modern Romance is a sickly sticky snorter that will blow you away. It twists and shakes like a high-speed train on the run. Totally overwhelming, uncontrollably zippy and entirely breathtaking. There’s no way you can ignore this terrific whirlwind. Press play and go bananas…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

8 October 2019

Turn Up The Volume featured omnipotent and combative London tandem TOKYO TABOO several times before. Their HUGE and THUNDEROUS hard rockin’ all-powerful vitality and puissance is simply irresistible.

The in many ways notable duo unleashed a new sledgehammer called ‘WHISKEY‘. Remarkable frontwoman Dolly Daggerz revealed the story behind this new thrashing corker: “I wanted to describe how I’d become dependent on alcohol to feel ok.

Turns out I never needed alcohol at all and that craziness lives in me!”

Whiskey‘ burns like a giant torch and sounds like a giant stunner that attacks your speakers relentlessly and feeds your hungry ears the way you actually love it. This enormous slam dunk proves once again that Tokyo Taboo‘s thumping potency is the perfect trigger to activate your adrenalin’s production. Wham bloody bam! Experience the brutal force

Who: “Half Greek, half Persian and half English – as she described herself age 5 – the Manchester-born Lexy found her identity in music early on as a pianist and violinist.”
She’s now based in Auckland, New-Zealand

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

28 September 2019

Back in December 2017 British post punks CROSS WIRES released a selection of their first thrilling recordings on a mini-album, titled Living In A Radio City, but soon they’ll unleash their proper debut longplayer ‘A Life Extinct’, out this Autumn.

Early August the group launched the furious lead-single. A two-faceted killer stroke called Paradise Club 1953 and here’s new cut number two. The weirdly named ‘HOW TO DETOX SMOKERS LUNGS’ has the band’s signature tone too. That nervous, fanatical and burning dynamic that cuts like a brand new Swiss knife. Yep, here’s another cutting corker that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

Here comes the biting fever…

Singer/Songwriter ILA Sends Shivers Down Your Spine With Heart-Rending Cut From Her New EP- Here’s ‘NUDE’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

25 September 2019

Last year ago I saw this quite talented Belgian singer-songwriter Ilayda Cicek aka ILA performing for the first time. It was an acoustic set. Just a guitar and a significant voice. Later on, she decided to add electricity to her heartfelt songs. She’s surrounded now
by a drummer and a guitarist with herself on electric guitar too. The turn around is overwhelming. So much more intensity, so much more passion and fire, also so much more confidence after playing a series of notable gigs.

Last Sunday I saw her performing once again. It felt like Jeff Buckley‘s ghost was in the house. Ila‘s bluesy musings and passionate reveries resonated as vulnerable, fragile and soul-stirring as Buckley‘s troubled introspections and disturbing contemplations once did. Ila‘s tense vocal timbre and highly sensitive discharge were at times similarly breathtaking as what we heard from that late great songwriter before. Quite an achievement!

After her 2018 self-titled 4-track live EP she will release her first studio record on 18th October. A new EP, titled Montagne. Ahead of it, here’s a first poignant cut called NUDE that summarizes everything what I experienced last Sunday. Discover the authentic beauty right here…

Now you’re here I definitely want to share this following live footage of HOME,
one of her most gripping songs so you’ll get an idea of her impressive live presence…

Dance Junks FERAL FIVE Will Play Around With Your ‘EGO’

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

23 September 2019

London‘s dance tandem FERAL FIVE has nailed it again with their new thumping banger called ‘EGO‘. A physically irresistible knockout that tackles monstrous egos, and we have seen some big political ones lately, haven’t we? ‘Ego’ is a middle finger for all ‘me, myself
and I
‘ narcissists, and a blistering blessing for all those who want to swing and shake themselves into a coma.

If your body doesn’t react in any way to this vibrating European disco cracker, spiced with some German lyrics midway, you’ll definitely need a doctor to check your blood pressure
and/or your ears’ functionality.

Press the button, turn it up and dance yourself dizzy …
