Downard and Their ‘Permanent Damage’

Downard – Bristol, England, United Kingdom Downard and their Permanent Damage are yet another part of my most recent catchphrase. The great 2020 catch up! Now, don’t fret, this isn’t some ill-fated trip down memory lane or some needless profundity denoting to generic trite. No, it’s my questionable attempt, failure and then follow-up attempt to again

Squidge – ‘Simple Functions’ (Single)

Squidge – Bristol, England, United Kingdom Underground Alt. Rock struggles on in 2020 and Squidge and their ‘Simple Functions’ single are fighting such a fight.

Introducing: Kamino and Their Colossal Sounds

Kamino – Bristol, England, United Kingdom Introducing Kamino and their colossal sounds is easiest via a statement I utter regularly and one that is truer each time it is said. Bristol is perhaps one of the most eclectic, progressive, diverse and important cities in the UK regarding underground music. The south-west institution is rife with

The Run Up – ‘Portraits’ + ‘In Motion’ Pre-Order

The Run Up – Bristol – England, United Kingdom Up until the release of the new single ‘Portraits’, to say that The Run Up have had an excellent time since their first audible and widely available inception would be an overtly gratuitous understatement. The Bristol five-piece and their anchored, gruff and sonically cumbersome, melodic Punk-Rock
