JODIE LANGFORD Scores Hattrick With Groovy Third Single ‘HOW IT IS’

New striking strokes

3 August 2022

Who: A swirling wordsmith from
the Hull / East Yorkshire area.

New single: HOW IT IS feat. Marx

Jodie: “How It Is, the recurring tale of getting messy with your mates to escape from the standard 9 to 5 working life. This track celebrates the poor life choices made after deciding to go for a drink with your friends/colleagues and the chaos and amusement experienced along the way. It actually came off the back of a spoken word piece I was recording, Baddie heard a catchy phrase that he turned into a chorus and encouraged me to write around that theme. and How It Is was born. “

Turn Up The Volume: It’s only Langford‘s third single after the flood-rap
lockdown-reflection on her debut I Miss It, followed by punky steamroller
TV Or Not TV.

The new one is a mid-tempo clap-along groover with an instantaneous swaying
impact on your hips. Could be the ideal remedy when trying to get out of bed after
a 48-hour weekend revelry and shake your hangover off. Sheeny synths, hip-hopper
Marx‘s jaunty contribution, and the zestful chorus, it all comes together seamlessly.

A hattrick! Let’s drink to that.

Gemma Clarke, Danny Collins and Aaron Forde. Their first three
released singles Sober, Favourite Thing and Royalty national

New single: JW PARIS

Danny Collins (vox/guitar): ‘Electric Candle Light is a futuristic analogue nostalgia
fuelled track all about those nights where you seem to fall into a time lapse and wish
for those past better days.”

Turn Up The Volume: Classic rock ‘n roll with a 20th Century fuzz and buzz
vigour. Flaming guitars, heavily pounding drums, and clamorous vocals.

After the electrical intro, a rip-roaring guitar riff storms all the way on this
steaming sledgehammer. If Aerosmith was a punk band they would probably
sound like this. Heavy cracker!

Los Angeles Misfits FOXX BODIES Detonate On New Single ‘BAD KID’

Daily electricity to load yur batteries

10 August 2021

(photo: Rochelle Shipman)

Band: FOXX BODIES (Los Angeles)
Who: Actually a sort of an accident. Bailey Moses, Adam Bucholz, and Matt Vanek
came together in their shared home when their singer Bella Vanek asked everyone
to play loud music she could scream over after she began unpacking her newly-
recognized childhood abuse.

Release: 5 November 2021 – order info here

“On Vixen, Vanek makes her trauma sound dangerously intriguing, singing about her
life in such a startling and honest way that it makes you examine your own ideas of
mental illness, gender, and trauma. Marry that with Moses’ salty, surfy licks, Bucholz’s
elaborate fills, [Matt] Vanek’s infectious baselines, and it’s all over. The four desert punks
meld together to bring a magnetic, dramatic air to each song, delivering romping punk
and the occasional piercing scream.”


BELLA VANEK: “When I am feeling happy and optimistic, it is so fun to sing and scream
and it gives me energy. On a bad day, I weep while singing this song and my stomach hurts
and the screaming feels like every piece of me leaving my body. It sounds so dramatic, but
I swear this song could fit into any moment of my life and be relevant.”

Turn Up The Volume: Foxy front lady Vanek spits and sneers and screams louder
than any Riot Grrl ever did. Her vocal range is beyond normal. On this slo-mo surfy
slam daunk she and her turbulent band swing from left to right and back with brutal
force and blustery bloody-mindedness. Wanna fight your demons? Be a bad kid and
yell your lungs to pieces. It helps for Bella.

I’ve been a bad kid.
My mom tells me I’m wrong;
don’t think she knows yet.

I’ve been a bad kid.
I want to tell you you’re wrong,
but I don’t know shit.

Warn your neighbours before you press play…
