Déjà Vega from Cheshire in England is the alt-rock trio of J. Fearon, M. Newton and T. Webster.
Brace yourself for a driving bass / percussion combination – need I say more – there is very little chance that I won’t like it, add to which a guitar that darts it’s way through tracks as tight as a cheese wire. Lengthy tracks are interspersed with vocal as Déjà Vega deliver sounds you just want to hear over and over again.
Having emerged from the ashes of another iteration less than a year ago Déjà Vega have hurled themselves into the world of music with confidence and the abilities to match it, as they get down to writing an ever increasing song-list, whilst building up a live audience. The mesmeric relentless driving beat is broken by flashing guitars which scythe their way through the landscape like the guillotine working its way through the French Monarchists.
I hope more of the tracks come to light for the audience who can’t get to see the band live in short order, other than the handful currently around and though I haven’t even heard rumours of an EP being even thought about – I recommend getting hold of it when the trio get round to it.
The section between three minutes five seconds and five seconds later in the video below – is enough to convince me of Déjà Vega as I am taken back to Continent by The Danse Society.

VILLIERS from the Ribble Valley in England is the alt-rock trio of Dan Earnshaw, Ben Earnshaw and Daniel Buckle.
Sunshine washed blue-thunder clouds roll into the room on hitting play with VILLIERS as their sounds drift into the room. The synths give VILLIERS the time to slow down the pace of tracks, which enables them to add considerable atmosphere to the music, as they make full use of the extended electronic notes to explore the full landscape of the pieces, whilst the percussion forms the edges of the perimeters retaining a forward progression for guitars and the vocal is delivered sympathetically with the constituent parts.
Having undergone significant changes over the past three years of their existence the sound has developed from a raw angst driven new-wave to the current synth pieces. The back history includes three previous EPs, which have given them greater confidence in their ability to write songs. The current evolution of the sound came about around a year ago, when a new soundcloud page appeared (their older sounds can still be heard on their older soundcloud account, with the transition on their reverbnation page)…. to the current sounds….
A new release due out on the 12th June – The Dancer – is the summation of the journey so far and is a smart piece of song-writing and delivery as VILLIERS rightfully stamp a claim for the rationale of their travels so far. Assuming this direction of travel is the path for future discovery, this release, marks the trio as a band you can expect to hear much more of in short order.

Rock-a-billy from Chester in England – yes you read that right, welcome to Liam, Jono, Rutter, Dave and John who make up The Suns and put on your blue suede shoes before you go further.
Being a music reviewer is such fun some times and here I am dancing with the keyboard as I attempt to type, thank you The Suns. But aside from my own enthusiasm – why else am I am asking you to spend a moment with a band that is so retro that Dr. Who becomes redundant?
Inside the snappy swirling tunes are compositions which rebound to 2014 – even the sardonic introduction ‘please could you consider us for a listen. we are from england and we wear black’ tells us all we need to know. Sometimes music is just for the joy of it and The Suns don’t need lengthy pomposity as to how the bass hits a demanding C minor as the lead guitar reaches a clef of D major and wow it all sounds perfect at The Albert Hall.
Take it from me – switch to your dancing feet and just dance with vivacious joy wherever you are right now.
That isn’t to say that The Suns can’t hit a note and explore the far more serious to further enthral the audience.
From the retrograde references to Sun Records and a logo demanding of a 45 rpm on a juke-box which retains that reference point – I am a fan of it, thanks The Suns for doing what you do and yes I do really have a pair of blue brothel creepers and thanks for giving them a work-out as I finally settle back to the desk.
A couple of tunes to consider and if you don’t want these to be released on vinyl – I think you are reading the wrong website.
