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! ๐Ÿค

The Wrap: September 2021 ๐ŸŒฎ

we’re back with our new September edition of The Wrap for you guys ๐Ÿ™Œ some unreal music has come out over the past month and we’re so stoked to chat a lil about it all here!

it’s so fantastic to see not only things reopening and gigs going ahead again, but some of our favourite artists doing what they do best and bringing out some absolutely unreal tunes for you all to hear! โœจ check out our in-depth reviews below โฌ‡๏ธ


SHADER are back with their brand new single “Blackholes”! ๐Ÿ™Œ filled with hard-hitting drum breaks, powerful and huge choruses and a lovely synth melody throughout, these are definitely ones to keep an eye on! A top guitar solo at the end, and we love the line “the world eats a weak man” – a real anthem for the lost youth. (SPOTIFY / YOUTUBE)


Manchester punks Supera Morza are back with their second single “Roadkill”! Following the mass success of “Scrubber”, this is a massive followup with the same unique energy we saw in the first single. Noisy, shouty, something to say.. what’s not to love about this? ๐Ÿค˜ We absolutely adore the DIY and grainy aspect of the video as well – gives it such a character! (SPOTIFY / YOUTUBE)


Sheffield-based folk-punk singer Steve J Allen has just released his latest album Contrast! Filled with powerful lyricism, controlled rage and outrageous guitarwork, Steve puts his energy completely into his music. ๐Ÿ˜Š lovely production throughout, especially in the intro of The Anchor – he’s got such a unique style that we completely hold our hands up to! (SPOTIFY)


Our favourite Tay Temple has just dropped her new single “Forbidden”, another single from her upcoming EP! โœจ a song of self-worth and reminiscence of past mistakes, it’s a message we should all take heed of… “it is forbidden, but we love it..“. We love Tay’s songwriting and this song is full of beautiful guitarwork, Tay’s band sounds so tight now and her voice sounds fantastic on this one! Making so many moves and the EP isn’t even out yet! (SPOTIFY / YOUTUBE)


We couldn’t not speak about this one could we? Our very own Olivia Browse has collabed with Szou to bring you a complete banger – definitely the sound of our September. ๐Ÿฅช Fantastic production, hyperpop-feel goodness, amazing vocals and Szou’s verse is just absolutely top! One to blast before you go out partying, and then some more while you’re out! (Video coming soon… keep your eyes peeled!) (SPOTIFY)


Warrington-based indie rockers The A.V. Club are back with yet another class release! We loved their previous singles and this one doesn’t disappoint at all! โœŠ With such a unique sound, synth-pop vibes in the chorus, this tune is such an innocent glimpse into the mindset of someone who’s falling for another – a lovely song from these guys who have been churning tune after tune for the past year or two! (SPOTIFY / YOUTUBE)


Another beautiful tune from Lea Willms – “Bittersweet” has such a fantastic aura surrounding it and the soundscape is simply gorgeous. Lea’s vocal sounds absolutely unreal – and the guitarwork is sublime and perfect for the song. Production on this is fantastic, really giving the track just what it needs โ˜€๏ธ well worth a listen. (SPOTIFY)


Alternative rock vibes all around for this – we adore the 90’s influence in Sophie Li‘s sound here! Lovely lovely track, Sophie’s vocal is lush ๐Ÿ˜Š the band sounds so tight as well, lovely swing to the drumbeat and the bassline is on point. Fantastic stuff! Well worth checking out and we can’t wait for even more to come from the Liverpool-based songwriter! (SPOTIFY / YOUTUBE)


It’s so boss to catch so many amazing artists bringing out so much unreal music! ๐Ÿ™Œ an absolute pleasure to be able to make these ones up and we catch so much new talent. There’s so many gigs and such going on now, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for these guys!
