i saw Trash first in 2015 as a support act. and whilst it wasn’t the best venue (JD’s lounge is now closed btw) to see a band as good as them, it was still pretty amazing. good enough for me to spend the little money i had on the Urban Glow EP (bargain for a fiver, best song is Drift). obviously i was a little sad when they split up last December, BUTTT, their final final show will see them perform on Leadmill’s main stage in February 2019, and it’ll be the best thing ever —— a show for all the sad boys and girls out there.

Sophie Allison AKA Soccer Mommy, is one of my favourite discoveries of 2018 (thnx Spotify). Lo-fi indie-pop doesn’t get any better than this.
“She’ll treat you like a fucking toy
She’ll break your heart and steal your joy, like a criminal”
With the release of their first album in a decade ‘Olympus Sleeping’, indie rock four-piece Razorlight reunited with an energetic set at Sheffield’s O2 Academy.
The band were greeted by an eclectic crowd of all ages. From teens to adults who had clearly grown with the band in the mid 2000’s. The punchy sound of the acoustic guitar and the sunburst of synths on the opening track, ‘City of Women’, showed fans who hadn’t yet heard their new material the scope and potential of the band’s later work.
