altered hours on my tongue ep cover

It’s been a while since we last heard from Cork-based five-piece Altered Hours, almost two years on from debut album In Heat Not Sorry.

Formerly operating as Print Cabal, the studio is expanding […]

September Girls have gone all Powerpuff Girls on us in their video for new single ‘Talking’. Their closest musical reference in my eyes is still early Horrors, though they sing on ‘Talking’, through the noise: “You don’t even know me”. All the while they surround themselves in a suffocatingly sludgey sound. Everything’s over in two-and-a-half […]

What I like most about this, the first single from Dublin band the #1s (the Number Ones or the Hashtag Ones; whatever you prefer), is that as soon as you get really into each track, it cuts out. Neither ‘I Wish I Was Lonely’ or ‘He’s Too Good For Everyone Else But He’s Not Good […]
