Shame – Interview 2018

Shame – Interview 2018

Back in January, Shame came out of the blocks fast with their stunning debut album Songs of Praise. Acclaimed across the board, their post-adolescent rage is infused with wit, a shed load of melody, and a fair degree of modesty. They didn't expect all this, but they may as well as take it as far as it goes. Following stints in Europe and the US they have just embarked on what they are now calling the 'Ibuprofen Tour'. Brightonsfinest spoke with guitarist Eddie Green about how a pub became the focus of their development, fighting at The Great Escape, and the stunning reaction to their music.

Demob Happy – Interview 2018


Demob Happy are back – and my word they are back! The have brought with them Holy Doom, their sophomoric effort which features more of the sleaze, the swagger, the fuzz and the hooks that we’ve come to adore. The Brighton via Newcastle act have been together ten years now and it feels like they have just got into their stride with an album that is sure to be high up on our Best Of Year list. A lot has changed for these dirty rockers since 2015 when their seminal debut LP, Dream Soda, came out. The main thing being they have gone from a quartet to a trio. We questioned Matthew Marcantonio, when in Norway on a European tour with Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, about their journey to this new album.

Hinds – Interview 2018

Hinds – Interview 2018

Hinds’ journey of conquering the world is still on course, turbo charged by the release of their second album I Don’t Run. The infectious attitude, personality and appeal of Hinds is a difficult thing not to get sucked up in, especially when you are making brilliant fun music to go alongside it. The success of the Madrid-based quartet is something we have never seen from a Spanish band, so we questioned guitarist and vocalist Ana Perrote about this crazy dream they are living.

Belle and Sebastian - Interview 2018

Belle & Sebastian – Interview 2018

Over two decades in and Belle & Sebastian don’t look like letting up any time soon. Their latest record, How to Solve Our Human Problems, split into three EPs, showcases the best attributes of the Scottish six-piece in a delightful 15 song piece. From the solemn ‘Poor Boy’ to the majestic ‘The Same Star’, they haven’t lost that pop gravitas that made everyone fall in love with them all that time ago.

They played the Brighton Dome on Thursday 15th March in a show that we said made fans feel involved in an evening that covered each area of the band’s discography. You can read our full review here. Before the show, Brightonsfinest caught up with band’s multi-instrumentalist Sarah Martin for a chat about the new project, the chemistry the band has with their fans, and the legacy of the band.

The Wombats – Interview 2018

The Wombats – Interview 2018

Named after the Australian marsupial, but born at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, The Wombat are one of the most successful British bands of the last decade or so. Matthew Murphy ('Murf'), Tord Overland-Knudsen, and Dan Haggis have just released their fourth album, Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life, their third consecutive top five album, and it's full of their trademark bouncy indie-rock, causing many a grown person to leap around like a 12-year-old. Murf took some time out to chat with Brightonsfinest.
