Introducing: Such Sights

2014 is definitely proving to be a great year for new British rock! We’ve already had New Forest’s Natives, Stoke’s Moral Panics and now there’s South Yorkshire’s Such Sights.

Blending elements of Comeback Kid’s heaviness with pop-punk hooks and emotive lyrics, the quintet’s new single ‘Seeing Is Believing‘ features on their self-released debut EP ‘Where Hell Begins‘.

Natives – Ghost

New Forest boys Natives have just released a new video for their upcoming single ‘Ghost‘, taken from the band’s debut album ‘Indoor War‘. Channelling the likes of Twin Atlantic and Canterbury, this catchy piece of melodic pop rock will be a great roadtrip soundtrack for the summer. Let’s hope the weather heats up soon!

Hold Your Horse Is – Whistlepig

Its quite a sad one for this Monday, I’m afraid! Not the track itself, the effortlessly catchy ‘Whistlepig‘ by Surrey / Hampshire boys Hold Your Horse Is. Its the fact that this is the last video from the alt-rockers, as they’ve gone the way of many a local hero, calling it a day long before their time. Speaking of bands gone too soon, Reuben’s own Guy Davis makes a nice little appearance here too.

Go on, watch it now..

Twin Atlantic – Heart And Soul

It might be a little late for Valentines, but Glaswegian rockers Twin Atlantic are in the mood for romance with their new single ‘Heart And Soul‘. It’s a bit more groove-lead than we’re used to from these boys, but that’s not to say it isn’t a lovely, catchy little piece with lots of feeling too. Plus there’s a trippy video, which is always good..

I Divide – I’m Not Leaving

Let’s face it, its Friday and you’re getting to the end of whatever workload you’ve got to do before you can go out and party / go home and watch Netflix (hey, I’m not judging..). Whatever you’re planning, let this be the tune (and it is a CHOON) to get you through those last couple of hours before freedom.

I Divide‘s new single ‘I’m Not Leaving‘ is one heavy kicking piece of rock, and the perfect thing to keep your spirits up. Just sing along in your head, yeah?

Royal Blood – Little Monster

If you haven’t heard this one yet, then you’ve either been hiding under a rock for the last month, or just haven’t been anywhere near a radio (or blasting out Slipknot on your headphones, also optional). Brighton two-piece Royal Blood have really taken off with their second single, ‘Little Monster‘, an Arctic Monkeys-esque, sleazy piece of distorted rock. No suprises that they’ve been picked to support said band at their Finsbury Park shows this May. If this track is anything to go by, they’ll be headlining their own massive London shows soon enough..

Order Of Voices – Hand In Hand

Does anyone else miss early-Incubus as much as I do? Hey, I’m not one to say a band has ‘gone mainstream’, but you have to admit that the newer stuff just doesn’t have that grunge-tinted feel too it. Obviously nothing is going to replace watching Brandon Boyd delivering those beautiful notes, whilst strutting about in just shorts and sandals (sorry, got a bit distracted there..), but this track from Sheffield lads Order Of Voices does come pretty closely, sonically at least!

Hand In Hand’ is the new single from the band’s upcoming second album, ‘Constancy‘.

Introducing: New City Kings

Step right up.. I’ve got some very catchy pop-rock for you! Essex quartet New City Kings might have only settled on their current name a short year ago (they were previously The Suburbians), but they’ve already recorded and released their debut EP ‘Change‘, as well as releasing two singles ‘Swords and Cannonballs‘ and the title track of their EP. Oh, am apparently Fall Out Boy are fans. Need I say more?

Introducing: Trash Monroe

Fact: there really aren’t enough females in rock music. Its sounds cliche, I know, but the fact that woman in rock music is even a talking point proves this.

Step right up then, and have a listen to melodic metallers Trash Monroe. Featuring powerful vocals from frontwoman Melany Dantes, the band have been touring and recording since 2003, building their reputation as one of the best unsigned bands from the South East.

The Essex band released their debut album ‘Shooting From The Lips & Other Crimes Of Passion‘ in 2010, followed by two EPs, ‘Addiction of Duplicates’ Part 1 and 2, featuring the single ‘S.O.B‘.

Have a listen below..

Trash Monroe play the Barfly on March 7th as part of Camden Rocks.

The Mispers – Brother

Its indie Thursday, right? Here’s a catchy little number for you, London quintet The Mispers have just released their new video for ‘Brother’. Featuring what looks like a pretty epic night out for a couple of guys (and if you’re bored, feel free to play spot the location), you’ll have that violin part stuck in your head for days.
