Just The Crust 14/03/22: VALA – This Town โ˜€๏ธ

our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the brand new tune from VALA “This Town”! ๐Ÿ‘Š

we’ve had VALA on our radar for a while now and they’ve put out some incredible releases, they’ve got such a lovely unique sound to their music and the Manchester-based band have only been going from strength to strength with each release and gig they’ve played – selling out shows across the country, how boss ๐Ÿ˜Ž

this new tune is super lovely, a real indie-rock banger from the lads. the elements of lo-fi in the track really give it a personality and with lovely lyricism, a chorus that sticks in your head like glue, and string ensembles really complimenting the rest of the instruments, it’s one not to miss out on! ๐Ÿค˜ we love the bridge too with that autotuned vocal, really gives the track an edge and brings it into a lovely breakdown. fantastic stuff from these guys and released with the class talents of Shoplifters Union! ๐Ÿ˜Š

you can find it on all streaming sites and that, on Spotify at https://open.spotify.com/artist/26tcWRMjTwUJks8fvo4JIs where you can also find the rest of their discography, and there’s a music video out soon on their YouTube! all going on, well worth a listen ๐Ÿ“ผ

Just The Crust 07/02/22: Novustory – Love Me Too โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ”ฅ

our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the brand new single from the fantastic Novustory “Love Me Too”! ๐Ÿค˜

Novustory have been tearing it up over the past few years in the North West, putting out a continuous stream of incredible singles, performing at huge events and even keeping at it throughout the lockdowns with livestreams, videos and even more! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

their connection to their fanbase is one we absolutely adore, they’re always keeping their audience involved with their music and merch, showing a real love of the support that people give them. ๐Ÿฅฐ well deserved too as they are all super talented and some of the hardest working people we know!!

this new single “Love Me Too” is yet another banger to their name, a hard-hitting tune discussing the toxicity of the music industry and the “need” to make it in today’s music business. ๐ŸŽธ a real top alternative rock tune, with elements of metal, pop and everything in between, they’ve outdone themselves with this release!

Imogen’s vocals transcend above the track, bringing the listener into Novustory’s world, really making a connection and then exploding into a huge wall of sound in the chorus – brilliant stuff! lovely guitar arpeggios carry the track, along with a rhythm section that expertly drives the track forward and forward, and the breakdown before the final chorus really sets a scene of calm before the storm of that huge, massive last chorus. amazing stuff from these guys. ๐Ÿค˜

the track will be released this Friday 11th of February and we’re super stoked to be able to have had a sneak listen to it. ๐Ÿฅฐ you can pre-save it over at https://smarturl.it/novustory_lovemetoo – well worth checking out all of their tunes on their YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/c/NovustoryOfficial or on streaming sites! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Just The Crust 17/01/22: HWY – Come Up ๐Ÿ™Œ

our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the debut single from Manchester-based alternative rockers HWY “Come Up”! ๐Ÿค˜

exploding onto the scene with this debut release, they’ve really started out on a high! blending elements of punk, grunge, and alternative rock, they’ve really created a gorgeous and unique sound for themselves. it’s a must-listen for any heavier fans out there, but we reckon it’ll suit fans of any genre! โ˜€๏ธ

with gorgeous guitar picking throughout the track, hard-hitting and driving drumbeats, and then a lovely lead vocal that moulds the track together so well and really paints a picture with the lyricism, it’s a fantastic tune. ๐Ÿ˜Ž when the chorus comes in, it really ignites the power of the track, opening up to a huge sound. the breakdown of the track is super lush too, mellowing out the track into a final eruption of their metal and alternative rock influence, dropping seamlessly into double time and really throwing the tune into overdrive. absolutely fantastic stuff from these chaps! ๐Ÿช

you can find the track over on their Spotify at https://open.spotify.com/artist/2vwjiY3CQUtVvwLaXewiB0 alongside other streaming platforms, or the full music video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQU_S6efB4c – well worth a watch, really well done. definitely one that they should be proud of and we can’t wait to hear more from them! ๐Ÿต

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 ๐Ÿ˜Š with huge, anthemic choruses and melodic and grungy build ups, these are definitely ones to watch on the Manchester scene. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

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 ๐Ÿค˜ lead singer Ben’s vocal sounds great on this too, showing his prowess as a vocalist – well worth a listen ๐Ÿค

Just The Crust 16/08/21: YNES – God’s Little Punching Bag ๐ŸŒฎ

our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the brand new single from the amazing YNES “God’s Little Punching Bag”! ๐Ÿค˜

returning with yet another lovely tune, YNES has been making waves across the Midlands with brit-pop fused indie rock tunes and this song is one of our favourites yet!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

with upbeat guitarwork, self-conscious lyricism and witty humour throughout, this song is an anthem of a doomed youth – a proper tune that will stick in your head for ages. definitely one to watch, we wouldn’t be surprised if YNES was headlining stages across the UK at all! โ˜€๏ธ another fantastic release from Grrrlgroannn!
