Track Of The Day: After London – ‘Do You Want Another World?’

A brooding new offering that laments the struggle between what you have and what you could have if you tried something new; After London have shared their latest single ‘Do You Want Another World?’. Released via Roadkill Records, the London alt-rockers have created something that’s garnered comparisons to early Wolf Alice.

Vocalist Frankie Ward’s range is showcased wonderfully on the new single, backed by atmospheric guitar and bass riffs provided by her brothers Will and Bryon. Drummer Jake Palmer and violinist Alex Tiffany complete the line-up, and together the five piece build a melodic soundscape incorporating all of their musical elements fluidly.

Speaking about the track, Frankie explains: “Sonically, we wanted to create a landscape that had groove and relief in its verse, which would then hit a wall of sound and noise in the chorus. In a way, the music reflects the choice between tearing something up and starting over or trying to make the best of what you have.”

Track Of The Day: Projector – ‘Full Circle’

Brighton’s Projector have shared their latest single ‘Full Circle’, and it’s swept us up in to a grungy haze. The track is taken from the band’s debut EP How Does It Feel? which is set to be released via Roadkill Records on 9th November.

The trio’s debut explores themes of “anxiety, love and loss”, and ‘Full Circle’ encapsulates all three. Bassist Lucy’s vocal range is impressively showcased on the track – switching between coarse, gravelly screams and clear, magnetic harmonies – whilst drummer Demelza’s beats drive the song to its conclusion, alongside Edward’s spiralling guitar sounds.

After a string of sold out home town shows and support slots including Tigercub, Demob Happy and Deap Vally, Projector will be headlining their own shows in celebration of their debut release. The band will play in Brighton at The Haunt on 9th November, and at London’s Moth Club on 10th (tickets are available on DICE).

Track Of The Day: Projector – ‘Break Your Own Heart’

A thundering blur of aggressively melodic sound, Brighton trio Projector have shared their latest single ‘Break Your Own Heart’ via Roadkill Records. Together, Lucy Sheehan (bass/vocals), Edward Ensbury (guitar/vocals) and Demelza Mather (drums) combine elements of grunge, shoe-gaze and post-punk to create their manic aural head rushes.

After a string of sold out hometown shows and support slots with Tigercub, Demob Happy, Deap Vally and Kane Strang, Projector are due to release their debut EP later this year. The trio were awarded funding from the PRS Rebalance scheme, a project run in conjunction with Festival Republic which promotes gender equality both on stage and in the studio.

Listen to ‘Break Your Own Heart’ below.

 

‘Break Your Own Heart’ is available on limited edition cassette (order here) and on the usual digital platforms now.

Video Interview: DOLLS

(Originally posted on Gigslutz)

London-based duo Dolls have been on GIHE radar for a while and they should be on yours too. Jade (guitar/vocals) and Bel (drums/vocals) have been performing their raucous mix of bluesy garage rock together across London for three years and have built up a loyal following and excellent live reputation in the process.

They’re set to release their latest single ‘Armchair Psychiatrist’ on October 6th via Roadkill Records and they’ll be playing a free launch show at The Shacklewell Arms (presented by Roadkill & We Can Do It Promotions) on the same date. Features Editor Kate sat down with Jade & Bel to talk about their upcoming single, what they’re anticipating for their launch party, and Jade’s inability to ride a bike during The Nyx’s ‘Firebreathing Lady’ video shoot…

Huge thanks to Jade & Bel for their time. Follow DOLLS on Facebook for more updates, and subscribe to Clark Kents Rock and Roll Revue on Youtube for more cool band interviews.
