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.
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.
Somebody (available on bandcamp) has an infectious undercurrent of growling pulsating rock to which Dream Wife add flowing textures of finally handled guitar that gives the track freedom of expression, allowing the vocal to draw the ideas together. Delivering a song in which the listener finds a pumping tempo to keep them on the dance-floor if so minded or equally remain seated and focus on the intoxicating melodies.
The trio of Alice, Bella and Rakel in the guise of Dream Wife is a band I look forward to hearing much more of in short order.
