Birdeatsbaby – Muscle Museum

Birdeatsbaby are seriously talented. Dark, haunting and emotional, their own songs are full of spark and beauty.

Their cover of Muse’s ‘Muscle Museum’ simply has to be shared. Listen to it. Then listen to it again.

And when you’ve done that, check out their songs on YouTube (We recommend their track ‘Drinking in the Day’ in particular and their new track ‘Baby Steps’). Birdeatsbaby YouTube channel

Alternative, dark cabaret punk at its finest.

Mrs Miller – Strangers in the Night

Ok, so this blog is primarily for spreading the word of aspiring, unsigned bands that are making waves in the music scene. However, just once in a while, it’s nice to delve into the past and find a spiffy little gem.

Such a gem was presented to me by a friend who described what I was about to hear as ‘the most interesting version of Strangers in the Night you have never heard.’

And fine people, this musical delight must be shared. Enjoy.

Bitter Ruin – Love Gone Left

So Bitter Ruin are back with their new single from the album ‘Waves’ and it is killer!

Georgia’s Intense, emotive vocals and lyrics interweave effortlessly with Ben’s powerful guitar. Melodic genius at its finest.

These two know who they are as artists and they want the world to hear it – they are currently gigging in London and Brighton and tickets are on sale now – check out their site for more info! http://www.bitterruin.com/

ReVerbed – Uncommonwealth

This new offering from ReVerbed is raucous, punchy and everything you’d expect to hear from this stellar band.

These guys have been working hard and it has paid off – They have had airplay on BBC Introducing and were nominated for Kerrang’s Best British Newcomer.

Definitely one to watch!

Bitter Ruin – Trust

Intense, emotive and with vocals that shatter your mind into a million pieces, Bitter Ruin are shaking up the music industry with their indie-noir sound.

An acoustic duo hailing from Brighton (and managed by the awesome Matt Lucas), these guys have supported artists such as Ben Folds and Amanda Palmer – and really held their own.

With strong, angry guitar and dramatic vocal inflections, their stage presence is as formidable as their songs and their creativity and passion spills out in waves.

Don’t try to resist them…they won’t let you.

The Jellycats – T.W.A.T

These guys are Fresh. With a capital F.

The Jellycats are a Ska-Punk band with a fierce energy and upbeat groove and ‘T-W-A-T’ (taken from their debut album which can be downloaded free here http://thejellycats.bandcamp.com/) shows that these guys mean business.

Instantly hooky, this track is filled with attitude, awesome vocals and a kick ass guitar solo. It really is the stuff that ska-filled dreams are made of.

This band is definitely one to watch! You should check out their website and download their music!! http://www.thejellycats.com/#/

Verona Lights – Rush

‘Rush’ is taken from Verona Lights’ debut album ‘A Weightless Descent’ and if this track is anything to go by, the album will be a blinder!

The heavy guitar riffs are incredibly hooky and the vocals are simply superb. ‘Rush’ is gutsy, melodic and sticks in your head after one listen. And clearly, only listening once is just not enough.

These guys are definitely one to watch! (And you can see more if you go here: http://www.veronalights.com/)
