our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the brand new EP from The Battery Farm
self-proclaimed “gutter punks” of Manchester, The Battery Farm have been tearing up stages for a few years now, with their energetic sets, driving tunes and formidable stage presence – they’re absolutely amazing live, every time we’ve caught them we’ve been blown away
the new EP features some of their previous singles this year, such as “Roy Keane Isn’t Real” and “When The Whip Goes Crack” – they toe the line between serious and having a laugh so well with huge, anthemic choruses and melodic and grungy build ups, these are definitely ones to watch on the Manchester scene.
one of our favourites off the new EP is “I’ve Never Been To Gorton” – a proper tongue-in-cheek tune about the different areas of Manchester, with lovely guitar melodies throughout and huge choruses lead singer Ben’s vocal sounds great on this too, showing his prowess as a vocalist – well worth a listen

we’ve been a fan of Scatterchild for a while now, with their beautiful piano melodies, lovely soundscapes, Jay’s fantastic vocal ability and top songwriting this new song is yet another in a long line of great releases!
a more touching subject with this song, it deals with the harder parts of a relationship and the emotion conveyed in this track is sublime building from the start, it really pushes through the feelings that they’re trying to portray and as it travels through the track, it builds up and up til the end where it explodes into a massive outburst of energy and raw feeling! what a tune!

the debut single from the Manchester-based outfit, this is a real indication of what’s to come from them! a beautifully put-together track, reminiscent of early 2000’s indie/folk nostalgia, Bonfire Tide have created a lovely soundscape for this track with waving guitars, almost angelic vocals and a driving rhythm. definitely one to check out!
