WOES Release New Video For ‘OVER IT’

Rising Edinburgh pop punks Woes have dropped a new video for Over It, the final single from their latest EP Self Help (KKKK – Kerrang!, 7/10 – Rock Sound) which was released on UNFD in May.


Over It follows previous singles HLB2, Real World, High On You and Losing Time – all of which generated support from the likes of BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, Rock Sound, Kerrang! Radio & Magazine and Alternative Press.

Woes have had their biggest year to date with the success of Self Help. Highlights include headline UK & Scottish tours, alongside support to Neck Deep, Seaway, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes alongside Slam Dunk, Galaxy Camp, Download and 2000 Trees festivals. The Scottish quartet are showing no sign of slowing down, with a mammoth 17-date UK & European tour supporting State Champs, alongside Seaway and Stand Atlantic.

Proudly wearing a mantra of Good Vibes Save Lives, Woes endeavour to push the boundaries of pop punk. This is the only the beginning.

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.



ISLAND CLUB Release Self-Titled Debut EP- OUT NOW

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

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.

BLACK HONEY Debut album out 21st September & ‘I Only Hurt The Ones I Love’ now

Welcome to ‘Black Honey’, the self-titled debut album today announced by the UK’s best rising band due for release on September 21st.  Listen to album opener ‘I Only Hurt The Ones I Love’. 


We’ve already heard ‘Bad Friends’ earlier this year, but with the exception of 2016’s ‘Hello, Today’ (the track that saw the band become a household name at Radio 1), and the 2017 closer ‘Dig’, the album is made up of entirely new music with 9 brand new songs on offer. Album opener ‘I Only Hurts The Ones I Love’ – which you can listen to now – is a fascinating Garbage-flavoured meander that sets the tone for the record brilliantly. From there, there’s stone cold classic ‘Wasting Time’, Lana Del Ray nodding slow-burner ‘Blue Romance’ and disco-pop Trojan horse ‘Midnight’ – to name just a few.  However, across the entirety of the record, you can always feel the bare bones of front lady Izzy B Phillips diary scribbles are just around the corner as the varying tracks switch between chart-headed bangers and scuzzy, industrial David Lynch inspired strangeness.



       Black Honey Track Listing:

  1. Only Hurt The Ones I Love
  2. Midnight
  3. Whatever Happened To You
  4. Bad Friends
  5. Blue Romance
  6. Crowded City
  7. Hello Today
  8. Baby
  9. Into The Nightmare
  10. Dig
  11. Just Calling
  12. Wasting Time
