If you're a Beatles fan you'll remember with fondness how the hairs on the back of your neck stood up the first time you listened to She's Leaving Home; well watching the video for So Little Time by Brighton's Pining For Sunshine produces just that effect.

It's the debut single written by Pining For Sunshine songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Jacob Shoobridge-Chandler and was produced by Iggy B and recorded at the Bella Union Studios no less.

No 9: 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 10:Talma

Seamlessly blending alt, classic and art rock, London-based five-piece TALMA command a magnetic sound and presence that comes straight out of the underground scenes of London. The raw and unshackled live performances are where TALMA truly run riot. They’ve supported the likes of Queen keyboard player Spike Edney and received acclaim for their intense energy and all-out charisma from London all the way to LA, including praise from industry commentator and author Ari Herstand.
