It is just over two years since the English alt-rock trio Peur were introduced.

Their latest single – Who is Your God? – released earlier in the month is a progressive feel to a driving rock backdrop giving the track a futuristic space feel as the trio allow room for the theme of the song to develop over the four and a third minutes of the song.
As you know music you like is never a science rather a purely moment in time concept and I can think of far more reasons of why I don’t like nu-disco than why I do – however as regular readers know I am drawn like a magnet to the style and Sexy Levels – in what is an atypical move jettison their more usual sequenced guitars to deliver an electronic number in #SUICIDESAUCE.
Cavalcade is the alt-rock quartet of Jack Campbell (Vocals / Guitar), Connor Duggan (Vocals / Guitar), Jack Lock (Drums) and Tom Nunn (Bass) from London in England.
Formed last year Cavalcade are still tentatively finding their feet with sparse live appearance and less than a handful of tracks for those of us further afield to hear – sometimes when you hit play you know you just never want it to stop and such is the case with these guys.
With songs ranging from the jocular and easy going to fulminating coils of invective they are able to deliver expressive combinations which bounce off the walls and straight in to the limbic system as swarming bass pulverises the speakers whilst guitars leaps through the room as though a wild animal released from a cage with vocals spinning in pleasured freedom as pulsating percussion ensures everything is tightly knit.
I am merely hoping that the quartet recognise they have done enough practising and spend far more time in getting their music heard than only hearing it themselves. I mark Cavalcade as a band to keep a look out for as long as in the very near future they are able to get over their own temerity, as they have nothing that needs to still be hidden under a bushel.
The English alt-rock band Jingo are set to release the LP Make Some Money, Buy Some Love on the 11th of March.

Within the past twenty hours the second of the ten tracks Sirens And Vices has been made available.
Jingo is a band who first featured back in 2014 and regularly since – their continued progression over the past three years is readily evident.
Those who have stayed with the the site for a while will recognise in the album reference points of similarity, whilst equally notice a more subtle finesse and confidence in their delivery as they allow themselves to take more time to shade the tracks, as, rather than revealing the complete shape in the early bars it isn’t until the songs are completed that their full perspective is apparent, giving the music a more organic flow in which the listener is engrossed as much in the segments as the final full picture.
I have had the fortune of having a listen to the approximately forty minute LP and can attest this is something to add to the catalogue when it becomes available.
