BRIAN'S BRAND NEW TOP 10 CHARTPublished on 14.4.18 and as played afterTHE INDIE SHOW on RADIO KC - 15.4.18 - from 5-7pm


No 1: Bugeye
No automatic alt text available.
Having made a splash in 2016 and 2017 with airplay from luminaries such as BBC 6 MusicSteve Lamacq and rave reviews from the likes of God Is In The TV, female fronted, disco-punk band, Bugeye, return with their new single, I’m Not the One and a UK tour with sold out shows.  

Taking obvious inspiration from early pop punk bands such as, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Altered Images with a visual nod to David Lynch and punch-drunk productions, I’m Not The One sees the band take on a slightly darker pop approach.


No 2: Acrylic
Brian's NEW Top 10 Chart - As played on Radio KC 15.4.18

Once in a while some new music comes along that transports you back to when you first heard a new release by a band that later becomes a true classic. 

Such was the occurrence on first listening to the upcoming EP release by burgeoning Scottish Alt-Popsters AcrylicListening to their All I AM EP transported me back to first listens to the likes of The Blue Nile and their near incomparable release Stay


No 3: Brownbear
Image may contain: 1 person, beard and close-up
What is Home? is the debut album from Brownbear. Combining strong melodies and indie riffs that have come to be expected from the band with an added lyrical maturity, the album covers love, loss and life whilst questioning what exactly home is. The album is preceded by an addictive and accomplished single release by the band in the shape of Truth Without Consequence which is accompanied by an equally accomplished and stylish video.

Brownbear are a four-piece indie-rock outfit led by singer/songwriter Matt Hickman.


No 4: Apollo Junction
Brian's NEW Top 10 Chart - As played on Radio KC 15.4.18
Leed’s natives Apollo Junctionare set to release their new single Beginon May 18th via self release. The track is a masterful re-working of the original release of Begin five years ago, bringing us a fuller, rounder more radio friendly single that's a guaranteed floor-filler. The original is on their Bandcamp but you'll be able to hear a pre-release spin of the track on Brian's Radio KC Indie Show of April 1st and that is no joke I promise you.
No 5: wojtek the bear

Brian's favorite video this week is Made Out Of Maps by Wojtek The Bear


Made Out Of Maps is the first single from the eagerly awaited debut album by Wojtek The Bear,A Talent For Being Unreasonablewhich is due for digital and vinyl release on Scottish Fiction records on May 25th.Wojtek The Bear tucked themselves away to work with Chris McCrory to record A Talent For Being Unreasonable at Shady Lane Studios late 2017.
No 6: The Moods


Brian's NEW Top 10 Chart - As played on Radio KC 15.4.18
Brian's favorite video this week is Hidden by The Moods from their Missing Peace album. After a monumental 2017, The Moods accelerate into 2018 at an exponential rate. Hailing from Manchester and the North West, The Moods are a ten-piece collective creating socially charged rap dealing with topics such as corruption, poverty, injustice and inequality. 


No 7:The Kut

Rock category Finalist of the UK Songwriting Contest 2017 and Semi-Finalist of the USA led International Songwriting Competition, The Kut have announced a World Wide Record Deal with Cargo Records for their long-awaited debut albumValley of Thorns.

No 8MeMe Detroit

Sitting somewhere between sleazy grunge and power indie, MeMe Detroit oozes sultry guitar driven hooks with a head turning vocal andMeMe Detroit has been pulling in fans with a magnetism that is both eloquent yet effortlessly cool. 

Previous support slots include bands such as Dead Sea Skulls, Piano Wire, Fun Lovin' Criminals and Asylums. Stand out shows include The main stage at Moto GP, Silverstone, The O2 Academy, Dublin Castle, The Finsbury pub for Get In Her Ears and Jurassic Fields Festival.

No automatic alt text available.
After setting the British guitar music scene alight with their riff-filled debut EP, hedonistic Hastings quartet Kid Kapichi return with their much vaunted EP Lucozade Dreams which is released tomorrow March 30th).

Having received support from the likes of Kerrang TV, MTV Rocks and London Evening Standard with their eponymous breakthrough debut EP, the rising indie rockers were being tipped off by industry experts as ones to watch.
