Hotly-tipped newcomers YVES are back with their latest offering ‘Where Do We Go
From Here?’, out August 17th.
This monstrous single follows the Swindon bands previous release ‘Hell From Your
Hello’ released in February 2018. ‘Where Do We Go From Here?’ is an instant
hard-hitter and a further development in to the bands darker side as frontman Harry
Roke delves into discussing the vulnerability and discomfort of heartache. A self-produced track, ‘Where Do We Go From Here’ is a whirlwind of sizzling, punch-the-
air, predatory rock ’n’ roll.
A busy start to 2018 saw YVES embark on an 11 date UK tour with sell-outs in
Cardiff, Birmingham, Newcastle and Swindon, as well as festival appearances this
summer at Hit The North, Isle Of Wight and Y Not Festival.
Comprised of frontman Harry Roke, bassist Mitchell Dodson and drummer Finn
Wilkinson the Swindon-based trio are on a mission to fuel the ‘rock ’n’ roll fire’ and
with a million Spotify streams under their belts, support from the likes of BBC
Introducing, Radio X, Clash, Gigwise and new music champions This Feeling,
they’re not far off.
YVES are to tour the UK in October 2018.
On their recent UK Top 5 album, The Peace and The Panic, Wrexham-based Neck Deeppushed themselves in every way possible.

SHADED have just announced they are off on a co-headline tour with fellow Common Ground label mates, Wolf Culture.

London hailing, pop-punk-new-kids-on-the-block, Shaded, have just released an absolute bop of a track that goes under the title ‘Tell Me’. I don’t want to be that girl that points out the obvious but if you like pop-punk artists, then you will like Shaded. In fact, i’d go as far as saying that you will love them.
‘Tell Me’ is incredibly reminiscent of the likes of Neck Deep, which believe me is a good thing. It has everything that you need in a track – it’s melodic, it has an infectious rhythm and it has a mint guitar solo. Check it out below!
Tell Me has already had great support from Spotify and has been added to
playlists ‘Pop Punk’s Not Dead’ (278k followers) and New Punk Tracks (94k followers). The single has also been added to Apple Music’s ‘Rise And Grind’ playlist. Of the single, Matt has said, ‘Tell Me comes from a place in my previous relationship where I felt that there was a serious lack in communication. I spent so long over-thinking and being made to feel that I was solely and entirely at fault.’
Alongside the unveiling of the Tell Me video, the band have also announced the news that they have signed to LA-based label Common Ground Records.
The first half of 2018 has seen Brighton based five piece Island Club come forward and cement their position as certifiable ones to watch. After giving us a taste of their
infectiously energetic style through singles ‘Sober’, ‘Submarine’ and ‘Talk It Out’, the indie-pop quintet have picked up tastemaker support from the likes of Clash Magazine, Coup DeMain and Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’.
CHECK OUT THIER DEBUT EP HERE
Having racked up 3 million streams on Spotify with upbeat synth-pop bangers ‘Let Go’,
’Paper Kiss’ and ‘Irresistible’, comparisons are already being made to the likes if indie
mainstays Fickle Friends, Sundara Karma and LANY, and with a freshly announced seven date UK headline tour through September and October with stops in Manchester, London, Bristol and Brighton, Island Club are fast carving a reputation as the band you need to know.
Tickets for the upcoming tour can be found here, and full details can be found below.
