Live: Truck Festival 2016

It would possibly come as a surprise to Truck Festival first timers, that it was in fact celebrating its 19th birthday. A well struck balance between the feel of a small, friendly festival whilst attracting big headliners, Truck thrives on avoiding the traps of mainstream festival expectations. A community festival, one that celebrates local businesses and supports charities, this is a festival that feels good from the inside, and looks great on the outside. If you’re looking for a festival that allows you to discover new artists but enjoy your favourite ones then Truck should make your festival shortlist for summer 2017. Notable...

From releasing debut album The Balcony in 2014 to winning British Breakthrough Act at this year’s BRIT Awards.

But unlike many followers, their blend of catchy hooks and heavy hitting guitars and drums made them stand...

Live: Catfish And The Bottlemen @ Guildhall Southampton

Live: Catfish And The Bottlemen @ O2 Guildhall Southampton To say that the band Catfish and the Bottlemen are on an upward trajectory would be something of an understatement. A little over two years ago, they were playing support slots in dank basement bars across the country – and now, via a top ten gold selling debut album, they have just concluded a UK tour that sold out every venue. Their two nights at London’s Brixton Academy sold out in six minutes. With a combined capacity of close to ten thousand, that’s twenty-seven tickets every second. Wow. The O2...

Catfish And The Bottlemen: Hourglass. Ewan McGregor Cover Version

Catfish and the Bottlemen have unveiled the full video of Ewan McGregor covering their brand new single ‘Hourglass’, which is out now on Island/Communion. The footage was filmed for the single’s official video in which Ewan took the starring role, thanks to frontman Van McCann refusing to take no for an answer in his quest to meet his hero. After cutting the original lyric video to ‘Kathleen’ using Ewan Mcgregor film clips, he bombarded Ewan with tweets and even produced a ‘10 Reasons Why I Love Ewan McGregor’ video for Transmitter. Once the boys added Ewan’s face to their...
