First introduced in 2015 as Boys Of Terror a significant change, aurally, is heard by Kalle Mossberg, the bassist, now being full-time with the new iteration of Dolorifics, rather than being purely the live performance bassist, which enables them to create a more rounded sound to the material with every player now being an integral part of the developmental progress of a song.
From their latest EP Excessive Self-Pity (which is available on bandcamp) the third of the four tracks – Goodbye – which evidences the stronger bond betwixt each element.
The tightly packed compositions keep the listener focused and in their newest single, The Visitor, Mellor deliver a track which has a party mood to it resulting in a piece with fleeter footstep to the music than that which has previously featured.
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.
By way of an introduction the closer on Nothing As It Seems – Alibis.
The English indie-rock band Puppet Rebellion released the single Please Me on the 10th.

With their signature sound of growling guitar surrounded by lighter beat Please Me is familiar territory for Puppet Rebellion, a style they have honed over the years and around which they continue to develop a wider audience.
The English indie-rock quintet tHE wONDERSMITHS released the single Stanley (What’s The Plan?) on the 3rd.
Combinations of synthetics and vocal breeze around the room in joyful footstep, while guitar spreads wings between rock riffs and jingly sparkles whilst the pressing bass keeps the combinations in order, For me the highlight of Stanley (What’s The Plan?) is a maestro performance on drum- kit with sticks threading between steel and skin in crisp pattern, giving the track both its party presence and, for those of us wanting a little more meat on the bones, it’s depth.
I have taken a listen to some of their back-catalogue too and can attest tHE wONDERSMITHS are capable songwriters and able to deliver tunes you will want to play more than once marking them out as a quintet to keep an look out for in the future.
