  • Saltwater Sun – Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Brighton – 14th September 2018

    Saltwater Sun - Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Brighton - 14th September 2018 Saltwater Sun – Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Brighton – 14th September 2018 Four top bands, three of them Brighton favourites, all for not much more than the price of a pint. That’s what dreams are made of round these parts, and Hidden Herd’s special show this weekend certainly lived up to that. As well as showcasing what the rising buzz of Saltwater Sun is all about, it is also the first sneak peak at a very exciting future for some of Brighton’s best acts.
  • Isle of Wight Festival 2018

    Isle of Wight Festival 2018 Isle of Wight Festival 2018 Whoever’s decision it was - whether it was new owners Live Nation, promoter John Giddings, or indeed Solo Music Agency - to move the Isle of Wight Festival to Glastonbury weekend, it turned out to be a masterstroke. Not only was the sun blazing for four days straight with not even a sign of any clouds, let alone rain, but it was one of the busiest Isle of Wight weekends since its reformation back in 2002, as seemingly everyone filled the fallow year void across the Solent. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the very first year back in 1968 (which saw the likes of Jefferson Airplane, T. Rex and Fairport Convention flock to the island), this year too had a suitable amount of legends in the form of Nile Rodgers, Van Morrison and Depeche Mode, as well as...
  • The Great Escape Festival – 2018

    The Great Escape Festival – 2018 The Great Escape Festival – 2018 To paraphrase that Marmite film classic, the streets were alive with the sound of music! Over three long days and nights, Brighton did truly come alive as The Great Escape juggernaut rolled into town for its 13th edition. The festival for new music saw over 500 acts playing in 40-odd venues, representing countries from all around the globe. If you add in the The Alternative Great Escape, and the plethora of events and pop-up performances arranged off the back of TGE and AGE, you’re looking at closer to 1,000 acts in 80-odd venues. Yes, it was mad, but glorious. Helped along by some beautiful mid-May sunshine, somehow within all the chaos, Brightonsfinest were out in force, documenting, commenting, and enjoying what we like to do best. Watch live...

  • Thyla – Interview 2017

    Thyla - Interview - 2017 Thyla – Interview 2017 Brighton’s Thyla have recently been carving a reputation for themselves nationwide with a flurry of singles that have been well-received in the online world. Having met at music university, the band have guided themselves through the woods of dark-indie rock to produce a finer, more agile beast, a sound taken up in their recent single releases, ‘Pristine Dream’ and ‘Ferris Wheels’. With a sound scattered in the ashes of 80s and 90s shoegaze and alt-rock, Thyla can successfully litter their simplistic structures with a range of soundscapes and sonic experimentation, leading to a noise reminiscent of Ride, early Verve and Swervedriver. I recently had the opportunity to speak to the band off the back of their recent performance at London’s...
  • Thyla - Bleach - 9th April 2016

    Thyla - Bleach - 9th April 2016 Thyla - Bleach - 9th April 2016 In Bleach, Two Bob Promotions had chosen an ambitious venue for their debut event - but also a strong and intriguing headline band in Thyla, backed by some solid supports. They may have a way to go to establish themselves as promoters, but they got off to a good start, concocting a young and homegrown feel with a lineup dominated by BIMM emergents.
