A mate described Dog is Dead as “Mystery Jets meets yacht rock”, and I think he may be right. This is a massive track that’s paired with an excellent video, perfect for summer fun. Their third single “Glockenspiel Song” is out from 23 July, while their debut album All Our Favourite Stories releases this autumn […]




For many of us, The Great Escape is the first thing that comes mind when discussing Brighton and Hove, but that’s not entirely fair to all of the quality bands who call East Sussex home. Whilst Lovepark hail from Burgess Hill in West Sussex, they’re not too far from the seaside and the town we […]

CHEW LIPS: new music



It’s been a few years since the whirlwind surrounding the early days of Chew Lips.
