“Talk More” by Headcage
Newcastle alt-rockers bring elements of Nothing More and Linkin Park to create their own distinct style. Hard-hitting guitars are combined with driving percussion whilst rhythmic bass counters the higher pitched vocal melodies creating a full-on sound that takes full advantage of dynamics, deftly alternating between contrasting loud and quiet sections for maximum impact.

“Costumes” by Nick Noon
Fans of Liverpudlian, scouse-Americana band sextet Red Rum Club are in for a treat here, courtesy of this musical gem by Nick Noon. Fantastically characterful, and slightly dark, vocals deliver intriguing lyrics which, alongside the superb music video, makes for essential listening/watching during the winter months as both will inevitably lift your spirits, especially with such lines as “we’re due for better and brighter days”. This is a real gem of a song and is a discovery that we’re sure listeners will cherish immediately upon first play.
