    Niterooms are wrapped up in computers and introspection. Their musical landscapes blur the lines between electronica, grime, r'n'b, hip hop, ambient and alternative music, imbuing their personal songwriting with a boundary-pushing, intriguing sound that shifts contemporary music into different places. The four tracks on Niterooms self-titled debut EP are an unmissable depiction of a swiftly emerging outfit already gathering strong praise, "...they're genuinely trying to do something different without it being a challenge ... it exists somehow, somewhere between grime, dream pop and...

    Hoult releases his debut single ‘Pharmacy’ on Friday 6th of October through Phwoar and Peace, it will be available on digital and streaming platforms. Hoult has the rare knack of sounding both dreamy and sharp at the same time. This, married with vital yet wistful song-writing, concocts his imaginative brand of guitar pop. ‘Pharmacy’ builds from an affecting intimacy into a song with a grand scale: possessing folk-tinged anthemic choruses reminiscent of Bombay Bicycle club and Frightened Rabbit and rippling with personal lyrics that tap into wider themes: “Pharmacy summarises the feeling...

    Straight Out of Nowhere and Back Again


    MORE FROM PAUL STEFFAN JONES: CLICK HERE September 1977. Elvis was dead and it was time to go back to school. I had done well in my “O” levels but I was in the grip of the music and attitude of punk rock and the possibility of not conforming to the expectations of the authority figures that seemed to increasingly surround me.

I...

The lure of the morbid can be explained as a noble desire to empathise with the...
