19 October 2020

A couple of weeks ago British rockers REGENT caused goosebumps
with their new single, the passionate power ballad TODAY.

Turn Up The Volume was pretty impressed and wrote: “‘Today’ is a solid gold staggering ballad made to be played in huge arenas with the crowd waving with candles all the way. The passionate blues at play here reminded me instantly of Led Zeppelin‘s timeless titanic score ‘Stairway To Heaven‘. Electrifying emotions going forth and back, going quiet and loud, going from intense to breathtaking and back.”

The band just shared a smoking clip for the song.

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

10 October 2020

After bittersweet symphony Time To Loose The Blues and steamy stomper Dirty Little Sinner British rock squad REGENT hit the bullseye again with soul-stirring stroke TODAY. A new piece from their upcoming debut LP Just A Revolution, out in Spring next year.

“I wanted to sit and write a song about heartache and the pain of losing someone. Whether it be a lover, mother, father, sister or a brother…. We all go through low times in our life, and in the middle of a pandemic, I wanted to create an anthemic track that everyone in pain can relate to” says frontman Ben Rooke.

Today is a solid gold staggering ballad made to be played in huge arenas with the crowd waving with candles all the way. The passionate blues at play here reminded me instantly of Led Zeppelin‘s timeless titanic score ‘Stairway To Heaven‘. Electrifying emotions going forth and back, going quiet and loud, going from intense to breathtaking and back.

Think of that goosebumps feel you get when you hear/see something that has an immediate jaw-dropping effect on you. Yes, that’s what happens here. Massive tune, massive vocals, massive sentiments.

Turn Up The Volume’s 15 KNOCKOUT TRACKS For AUGUST 2020…

This past month’s best…

Quote - kopie (2)

Fifteen Knockout Tracks on repeat this past month!
A fervent fusion of robust rippers and striking strokes.
Here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s Knockout August Team.

‘Vote That Fucker Out‘ by WRECKLESS ERIC and AMY RIGBY (UK/US)
An anger-fueled uppercut, the whole wide world should scream along. A firm middle-finger knockout. Let’s get together and shout at the top of our lungs until the elections
in November. Exit Trump is the world-saving goal, ladies and gents! Let’s act! Let’s sing…

‘A Hero’s Death’ by FONTAINES D.C. (Ireland)
Rollicking title track from the Irish post-punk misfits’ second album.
An unquestionable contender for longplayer of this science-fiction-like 2020.

‘Hail Taxi’ by METZ (Canada)
These Canadians deafening noiseniks have slash and trash chromosomes in their DNA. Don’t even try to resist this wall-balls-breaker, just surrender. New LP Atlas Vending arrives 9th October.

‘Fixer Upper’ by YARD ACT (Leeds, UK)
A mind-twisting crackerjack that’ll do your head in the way you like it. This funky as bloody hell banger sounds as if Mike Skinner and Sleaford Mods joined forces to experiment with intoxicating guitar riffs and turn up the decibels on for once. Cuts like a Swiss knife…

‘Hold My Hand’ by DEATH VALLEY GIRLS (Los Angeles)
Gloriously catchy, peppery and poppy with a cool vintage organ, shake and swing beats, 60s garage glow and Bonnie Bloomberg‘s peek-a-boo vocals. “Love is just like the ocean.

‘You Say’ by MADAME SO (Paris/London)
A spunky standout. A warning message for all hostile killjoys out there. Kicking off
with a powered guitar riff, soon followed by Madame So‘s vox hitting the roof with
the titanic You Say chorus. Smoking stuff, ladies and gents…

‘The Soul Singer’ by THE WATERBOYS (Scotland)
High-energy stroke! A horns fueled belter from amplified folk troubadour
Mike Scott and his band’s new – fourteenth – solid album Good Luck, Seeker.

‘Late At A Festival’ by BLUE STRAGGLERS (Sussex, UK)
Razorblade melodiousness drenched in a pool of kamikaze guitars, going forth and black like a roller coaster on the run. Blur‘s Britpop flair pumped up with tons of illegal decibels. Don’t come late at a festival with Blue Stragglers on the bill or they will find you and make you beg for mercy. You have been warned!…


.

‘Trump’s Still In Washington’
by BROKEN SOCIAL CONTRACT (Washington, US)
A razor-sharp rant about that 24/7 idiot in the White House. One-man-band
Justin Donnelly delivers the fitting belter to ventilate our own fury. Play it loud,
play it on repeat, play it until a new real POTUS arrives in Washington.


‘Everybody Will Be Forgotten’
by FAST FRIENDS (Bay Area/Boston/Denmark)
This paranoia punk punch sounds like Weezer on dope, like Green Day kicking that
American Idiot in the face, like the mental result of a lockdown psychosis, like if there
is no tomorrow. Jump and yell along before it’s too late. Right now, right here…


.
‘Forever’ by FOLK DEVILS (London)
Once a devoted indie rocker always a devoted indie rocker. Even are all these years you can hear and feel this band’s beating heart and feverish soul burning with strong-willed bravado and hungry desire. Dynamite sound, dynamite tune. Seems like Folk Devils are back forever despite the taste of life going wrong…


.
‘My Faith Is Larger’ by SAVING JACKIE (San Antonio, US)
A hot-tempered sucker-slam triggering every single nerve, every single muscle, and every single vein in your shuddering body. If you’re still mourning the loss of Rage Against The Machine, dry your eyes, rise from your bed, and go mental to Saving Jackie. Now!…

‘Burn’ by TEROUZ (Montreal)
This stunner wouldn’t be out if place on a Sisters Of Mercy album, while Terouz’s voice balances between Interpol‘s maestro Paul Banks and Editors‘ frontman Tom Smith.
Get up, stand up, and pirouette yourself dizzy…


.
‘Dirty Little Sinner’ by REGENT (Southampton)
This cracker blends Oasis‘ northern flair and Blur‘s power-pop catchiness. A steaming kinetic stomper to play to the max on your stereo so the neighbours can jump around
like doped monkeys too when the boiling chorus kicks in. Pump your fists in the air…

‘It’s OK To Bleed’ by HEAVY SALAD (Manchester, UK)
A trippy, mantra-like chant that will set your free. Light a joint, steal your grandparents’ hippie outfits and join Heavy Salad up there, eight miles high and dream of better times…

All together on Spotify

.
See/hear you next month, music junkies…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

14 August 2020

Southampton gunslingers REGENT spoiled my ears last June with bittersweet symphony Time To Loose The Blues. And here is their brand new single . A thumping stormer,
a hot and sticky jackhammer.

DIRTY LITTLE SINNER blends Oasis‘ northern swagger and Blur‘s power-pop catchiness.
A steaming kinetic stomper to play to the max on your stereo so the neignours can jump around like doped monkeys too when the scream-along chorus kicks in. And when the blistering guitar solo comes in it’s time to pump your fists in the air. Get my drift?

Now, roll with it, all you sinners out there, hand in hand through your parklife.

Bittersweet Symphony – Here Are British Rockers REGENT With Brand New Single ‘TIME TO LOOSE THE BLUES’

Reveries for the laziest day of the week

28 June 2020

Brit-rock trio REGENT from Southampton dropped their third single of 2020. Hallmarked with the swagger and sonics of 90s flag bearers like Ocean Colour Scene, Oasis and The Verve, TIME TO LOOSE swiftly follows I Told You So and Again.

Frontman Ben Rooke says “the song is about love, devastation,
heart break, and coming back no matter what life throws at you
.”

Time To Loose The Blues has all the touching characteristics of a vintage, intimate Noel Gallagher ballad. Epic, captivating, and soul-stirring. A heart-to-heart meditation to cry
your heart out to, a downcast tearjerker making you feel better afterward. It could be the sonic, comforting friend you’re looking for in these days of isolation blues. A bittersweet symphony, indeed. Sit down, relax, close your eyes and let your thoughts float away…
