Portsmouth group Is Bliss are aptly named. The band’s psychedelic sound continually reaches toward the sublime, matching shoegaze tapestries against some beautiful melodies.

Debut album ‘Strange Communication’ lands on June 7th, with Club AC30 stepping in to offer a platform.

Live shows are planned, and with Spring beginning to show its face the time is right for some aural bliss. The group excel on new song ‘All I See Is You’, a wandering, churning, meditative piece of love-lorn songwriting that finds those heavenly harmonies augmented by the merest touches of strings. Formed via a shared love of Slowdive, Spacemen 3 and Verve, the band paint a sprawling, reverb filled sonic landscape mixing hypnotic, drug induced reveries with explosive noise, droning instrumentation and plenty of emotional rawness.

It’s a many splendored jewel, seeming to reflect light in a thousand different ways, a thousand different shades of colour.


Portsmouth based psych aficionados, Is Bliss, their debut album Strange Communication, will be released on the 7th June via Club AC30.

In brief: Fuzzy, chaotic, but always a blast live. Melt Dunes are a Portsmouth/Southampton based noise-rock band.  Melt Dunes’ raucous racket is a violent sensory attack. Brutal aural experimentation has spawned what is the bastardised sound of whirring psychedelia and gutsy garage noise.

Brighton England’s Curxes blew the cover off of my dislike of electronic music. Darkly intense……. both terrifyingly and infectiously arresting sound By embracing the in your face immediacy of punk,”The perfect example of original, intelligent pop music and the manic nature of industrial, all while punishing a synthesizer, the band has concocted a wholly unique sound. It rarely lets up, when it does, it’s only to reload. And I love it.
