The England based electro-rock quartet Francobollo are set to release the LP Long Live Life on the 14th of July.
Francobollo are unafraid to test themselves or the listener with their packed and ever different soundscapes, which may be progressive, psychedelic, angular or in the case of Worried Times from the forthcoming album, dance-floor. Though rest assured whatever they deliver is played with panache, style and ability with the knack of capturing and holding attention.
The England based dark-synth duo Northwest are currently working on an LP due for imminent release.
Recently returned from a tour in Italy, currently playing in the UK to be followed by a European tour later in the year they also find time to step in to the studio from time to time.
Akin to the reversal of the word Dimaryp, taken from the forthcoming album, minds of Pyramide du Louvre with changes of light and viewing angle altering the apparent shape and texture, with the track finding the listener discovering more complexity and nuances the longer they remain.
The England based new-wave quartet The Franklys will be releasing the LP Are You Listening? on the 12th of May.

Within the past twenty four hours Weasel – the second of the ten tracks was made available. A thunderous fury of high energy rock punches its way through the speakers, yet the quartet are able to reign everything together giving the song a tightness that gives the just under three and a third minutes composition its powerful presence.

Since their introduction in September of last year Dama Scout have secured regular live performance appearances and released the uptempo single, All In Too, that came out in December.
Paper Boy, returns to the territory of their début single, Forget It’s Good (both available on bandcamp), with a luscious texturing of subsumed echoing vocal surrounded by gauzy guitar that fills the room with a hazy rolling warmth in which the listener wants to wrap themselves and stay warm in the comforting embrace of the music.
Rumble Fish is the London, England, based indie-rock quartet comprising Izaak (Guitar / Vocals), Natan (Lead Guitar), Isfand (Bass) and Arthur (Drums).
Working in a crowded genre it is always difficult to carve a discernible difference to other new bands starting out and while Rumble Fish don’t seek to move far from the anticipated they do have a sound which piques interest.
Beginning to generate a live presence they have also released a five track EP Nothing As It Seems which they have used, appropriately, to showcase the breadth of their songwriting. Be they hammering out rock driven numbers of ballad tenderness Rumble Fish demonstrate a deft capability, whilst always lurking in the background is a retro feel to the songs, giving them an unanticipated warmth.
The release of the EP can’t do anything but help them gain a wider audience along with more frequent opportunities to play live.
