“You said, do I have hope and I said I don’t… but I do,” riddles Hazel Wilde on the Newcastle band’s fourth album. Surveying the gathering storm, here’s an end-of-the-world address that finds stirring beauty and defiance in humanity’s final acts. To mark the occasion of our album coming out today we are sharing another live session video. ‘Swimming Lessons’ was recorded and filmed live at Blast Studios in Newcastle.

While the songs are Lanterns On The Lake’s’ leanest yet, fusing dreamy pop melodies with Paul Gregory’s soaring post-rock guitar, it’s Wilde’s lyrics that quicken the pulse. On Swimming Lessons, she marvels at “Vincent’s starry night with the colour drained”.

 Blue Screen Beams laments mobile phone addiction, while lead single Every Atom is a potent shot of glorious romanticism.If we are sleepwalking towards apocalypse, Lanterns On The Lake are here to sing us out in style. “The waters are rising/ our leaders unhinged,” sighs Wilde in majestic 3/4 on Before They Excavate. “Let’s break out the good stuff and toast to the end.” .

Indie rock trio Demob Happy return with explosive new single ‘Mother Machine’, their first new music for 2020.

Following 2019 single releases ‘Autoportrait’ and ‘Less Is More’, ‘Mother Machine’ sees the former Artist Spotlight band Demob Happy complete the trilogy delving headfirst into futuristic sonic realms, rewiring sprawling space-rock with a fierce and direct dynamic energy. Speaking of the track, frontman Matt Marcantonio states: “These last three singles have been like a trilogy, expressing things I’ve felt over the most intense year of touring I think we’ll ever do, and things I’ve learned about where we’re all going. “I wanted to leave ‘Mother Machine’ ’til last as there’s a lot of new sounds in it, and I like what it says about the future.”

Mother Machine’ debuted on Jack Saunders’ BBC Radio 1 show as the first Maida Vale session of 2020. Fans can also expect performances of ‘Autoportrait’, ‘Be Your Man’ and a special rendition of ‘Less Is More’ also featuring a cover of Daft Punk’s ‘Robot Rock’.

Demob Happy are currently recording the anticipated new album to follow 2018’s ‘Holy Doom’.

The band have also announced their first shows of 2020 with UK headline dates in collaboration with DIY Magazine for Independent Venue Week.

Atmospheric Newcastle based indie rock band Lanterns On The Lake already had everyone eagerly awaiting fourth album ‘Spook the Herd’ with beautifully stark song ‘Every Atom’. Now that first taste is followed by powerful second single ‘Baddies’ which unveils frontwoman Hazel Wilde’s frustration with the domination of the rich and powerful, maintaining their control stoking up prejudice.

Baddies is a song about the rising tide of anger and hate in the world that seems to have been unleashed over the last few years, with those in positions of power and influence actively encouraging it for their own ends, and the polarisation of society as a result. It is about the need for the individual, the underdog, to stand up to it, but the fact that in doing so we become part of it. We become someone else’s baddie.”

Baddies is the new single taken from our upcoming album ‘Spook The Herd’ out on 21st February 2020

We’re very excited to announce our third album ‘Viscerals’ will be released on Friday 3rd April 2020. Their brand new album is on the way, and have shared a raucous first cut to get us even more excited.

Set to land on 3rd April, new album ‘Viscerals’ promises to be full of riffs and dynamic melodies, proving what a monumental force the Newcastle quintet are. And if you need more convincing it’s going to slap, have a glimpse at the record’s first offering ‘Reducer’ which is an absolute face-melter.

“This is the first taste of our new album ‘Viscerals’” announce the band. “It’s called ‘Reducer’ and it has a very strong flavour. It’s one of the songs that came together quickest during the writing process. It’s immediate and unruly and has that cathartic edge we seek out from the music we make together. It’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun to play live. Let’s rock.”

Ask anyone who menstruates, and they’ll tell you the same thing: It sucks the big one. Still, if there’s any band that can spin a negative into a positive, it’s Newcastle’s finest export. Drummer Kat Friend takes the lead on this rousing, defiant rocker – and when backed up by a fellow menstruator in Totty‘s Kelly Jansch, she sounds more or less unstoppable. Spinning their usual jangle-rock into something a bit slicker and tougher, “Busy Bleeding” is the sound of The Gooch Palms broadening their horizons and expanding their palette. It’s unexpected, but that’s what happens when you’re seeing red.

The band name is all-caps. The single title is all lower-case. Don’t let the latter fool you, though – Theres a lot of shouting . There’s also a buzzing, electric riff that blasts through this motherfucker, too. Joab Eastley is a man possessed, sending his humble six-string into outer-space while he shrieks from the bottom of a K-hole just to be heard. Everything about “k bye” is decidedly batshit – and, in all honesty, it should not work nearly as well as it does. Maybe there’s something in the water up in Newcastle. Maybe their drinks got spiked.

Newcastle-based indie-folk newcomer Callum Pitt , whose The War On Drugs, Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes-influenced sound has attracted a ton of attention in the first half of 2017.

Debut single ‘You’d Better Sell It While You Can’ hurled him straight into the limelight back in January with support slots for the likes of Meadowlark, Cape Cub and Isaac Gracie alongside BBC 6 Music coverage soon following.

Latest offering ‘Least He’s Happy’ has done nothing to stop his momentum, with praise from DIY Magazine for his stunning falsetto voice and finger-picked folk riffs very warmly received.
