Now for new releases to check out, or keep an eye out for -
Big Whoops (who are playing with The Cherry Dolls on Friday night) just released a cracker of a track in 'For Crying Out Loud', and already released an accompanying lyric video as well. Have a listen/watch here. We've also made this our clip of the week.
Fragile Animals have brought out an epic track in 'Home' today. Produced by Elliot Heinrich at Heliport Studios, this is pure dark indie pop, and it's freaking amazing. Listen to the track here.
Dead Kelly fans, rejoice, for the third instalment of the Legend of Borry will be arriving online next Monday at 4pm (on their page). If you've been following Borry's story, you know this will be one brutally epic track.
