SEA GIRLS – ‘Violet

London based indie rockers Sea Girls are riding high having wowed fans at Leeds and Reading festival. Check out their fantastic new single ‘Violet’.

Singer Henry Camille explains; “If our other tracks are the shade, then Violet is definitely the light. There is no tortured soul here, just a boy who avoided the inevitable for years, suddenly realises, and throws himself wholeheartedly to someone who’s made for him. Put your face in a sink of ice cold water and that’s how it makes me feel.

Sea Girls tickets are currently available.



STARSET  – ‘Manifest

Why do small when you can go epic? Starset opt for the cinematic scale on their harsh new single ‘Manifest’ which is accompanied with an incredible dystopian video. ‘Manifest’ will appear on their upcoming third album ‘Divisions’ which they promote with a tour in February.

Starset tickets are currently available.





EVERYONE YOU KNOW – ‘Look After Your Pennies

Rhys Kirkby-Cox and Harvey Kirkby are the dance duo Everyone You Know who have been steadily building a following to become one of the most vital break through acts this year. The pair now release their new EP ‘Look After Your Pennies’ which is packed full of huge bangers and thought-provoking singles. Check Out their interview with Gigwise in which they discuss each track.

Everyone You Know tickets are currently available.







Recorded on the Norwegian island of Giske, Bradford punk rockers New Model Army return with their 15th studio album ‘From Here’.

We all have different lives and different tastes in almost everything, including music. One thing we have in common is the love of bleak, open, cold, rugged landscapes – water, snow, rock. 

So, this was the perfect place for us to work on something collectively – at all times while we were working, we could look up and see the sky, the sea and melting snow on the mountains, all in a constant state of change. 

So, this album has a feel that is different to our other albums, but it still contains all the elements that characterise our peculiarly unidentifiable music – perhaps even more than ever. 

And ‘From Here’ was an obvious title. The record belongs to a very special place and a particular time – what is happening in the world, where we are as a band and where we are as people.

New Model Army tickets are currently available.



LANA DEL REY – ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell

After almost an entire year of teasing us, Lana Del Ray has finally dropped her long awaited fifth album ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’! A return to her former sound with picks up the tattered remains of 60’s Hollywood romance, mixing the myth of the American dream with the nightmare of Californian apathy. Nostalgic, timeless and yet so very now.

Lana Del Ray tickets are currently available.
