Catfish and the Bottlemen – The Ride

Catfish and the Bottlemen – The Ride 3/5

Since the release of their debut The Balcony in 2014, the quintessential indie kid has been head-banging to the ferocious alt-rock tunes of Catfish and the Bottlemen. If the quirky name didn’t draw you in, it was the formidable guitars, warbling vocals or unashamedly audacious lyricism that cracked you.

Jack Garratt – Phase

Jack Garratt – Phase 4/5

After the initial anticipation surrounding Jack’s first two EPs, Remnants and Synthesiac, and the high praise of being given the title of BBC’s The Sound of 2016, 24-year-old Jack Garratt has launched his career with a bang, in the form of the electronica explosion that is his debut album, Phase. Prior to this, Jack headlined stages at Reading and Leeds and the Apple Music festival, as well as being awarded Critic’s Choice at this year’s BRITS and is on MTV’s Brand New Shortlist – something that probably didn’t seem too likely when training to become a teacher at university just a number of years ago.
