NME’s Secret Guests At The Haunt
Show: The Haunt 15th May Midnight
We’re putting on Radar shows every evening at our out’n’out favourite venue in Brighton, The Haunt. The bill has been handpicked and features the best breaking bands around. Deep breath…

– Courtney Barnett’s touring buddy Fraser A Gorman
– London DJ bros Formation
– Sydney trio Little May
– Former Late Of The Pier man Sam Dust (Eastgate)’s sublime new project LA Priest
– UK indie’s most messed-up and exciting new band Yak
– Canadian Velvets-obsessive’s Heat
– XL/Godmode Records wonderkid Shamir
– and Gengahr, who’s guitarist John Victor plays like he’s Graham Coxon’s surrogate son

Friday night at The Haunt, though, is one I’m particularly looking forward to – a mammoth seven-band bill comprised of America’s absolute best garage bands right now (The Garden, Bully, Wand), Copenhagen grungers Yung, all-girl London newbies The Big Moon and ‘the new Jamie T’, Rat Boy. Heading it up and playing at Midnight are a total a-list band who you don’t want to miss out on. In previous years, we’ve had Palma Violets, Fat White Family and Peace play this slot and every gig has been crazy. This year is our biggest band yet, so get down early.

Theo Verney’s formula has always been rooted a combination of absorbing riffs and wild abandon. So when it comes to new track, ‘Brain Disease’, it’s little surprise that the Brighton-based rocker hasn’t taken a detour.

Following lead trackMountain Rose, the title-track of Verney’s new EP takes some of the brief thrashing power of its predecessor, dropping a jerky melody in favour of straightforward, all-out garage-rock. Both tracks stay true to Verney’s original dark and heavy roots, only now the lyrics are frightfully paranoid and his voice shines through with confidence and assertion.

Ahead of three performances at this year’s Alt Escape in Brighton, Listen here to Theo Verney’s ‘Brain Disease’. ‘Brain Disease’ is out via Mount Olympus Recordings on 8th June. You can pre-order the new EP here and catch him at the Great Escape this coming weekend.

Having just come back from a European tour and celebrated the release of their debut album on 16th March, Charles Howl, a London-based brit-psych group announce a new double A single taken from ‘Sir Vices’: ‘Lunacy’ & ‘Sighed At Me’.

Founded by two members of The Proper Ornaments, Charles Howl are some of the last children of the ‘80s, and with a Britpop upbringing, it is no wonder they have produced an album that sounds like My Bloody Valentine channeling The Stone Roses, while maintaining a contemporary charm.

Charles Howl will be playing at the Great Escape Brighton May 2015

Majke Voss Romme’s aka Broken Twin synonym has quickly become one to be besotted with, something that shows no signs of change with the newly released track “Glimpse of a Time”, taken from the recently announced and forthcoming debut album “May” which is due for release April 28th via ANTI-Records.

“Glimpse of a Time” is stunning, of course it would be, guided by soft, uncluttered instrumentation which is never more than an understated accompaniment to Majke’s vocal, a voice that cuts straight through you and leaves your emotions teetering on the edge. Possessing an infinite amount of vulnerability and beauty, it’s one of the most intimate voices I can remember hearing, it ekes out hidden depths from her longing lyrics and genuinely moves you .

her songcraft is just as affecting live, thankfully the wait for a repeat chance isn’t too far away with Broken Twin already confirmed for May’s Great Escape festival  in Brighton(with no doubt a few more shows to be confirmed).

The title track of the Ep Waterloo by Sophie Jamieson and her band project, this young female singer songwriter is finding her sound with haunting vocals and sparse arrangements giving the songs a wordly feel certainally for fans of Daughter,
