EP Review: Salvador – Salvador

Framlingham-based indie band Salvador have just recently released their self-titled debut EP, consisting of five great tracks. Ordinary Love opens the EP and just three seconds in, the vocals set the mood of the song making it instantly feel indie. The tightness of the instrumentals shows the bond of the band and the strength of […]

EP Review: KYANOS – Lost In Blue

Ok so picture it now – it’s late 2017, maybe early actually, actually probably not. It’s like roughly late 2017. I’m at a gig in Bury St Edmunds’ The Hunter Club and a certain bass player from KYANOS approaches me drunk. He rambles for a while as I try and make out what he’s saying… […]

Track Review: The Extons – No Hope

Kings Lynn-based indie rock heroes The Extons returned to the fore in February with the phenomenally good No Hope.

No Hope […]

Track Review: KeloDown – Breakin’ Off

Based in Bury St Edmunds, the band consists of Harry Dale (bass/vocals), Barny Cutter (guitar) and Ruby Smith (keys/vocals). The trio have created […]

Track Review: Rubber Jaw – Freaking Out

Creation23-signed Colchester Trio Rubber Jaw are back with another slice of raw cut emotion you can freak out to. Rubber Jaw are a name you might have heard floating around the East Anglian Music scene for some time now, having been around for the past 2 years, they have already found themselves playing with Pete […]

EP Review: SLOW KING – Infinity Bang

Slow King is an indie-electronic monarch I’ve only just discovered through a new EP titled Infinity Bang which released a couple months back. On the whole, it certainly delivers that alternative singer-songwriter aesthetic. 21- year-old Jacob Powlett is undoubtedly a very talented musician and producer and this EP shows an impressive scope of genres, including […]
