Album Review: Puppet Rebellion - Chemical Friends. Familiar melodic flair, powerful anthems and strong tonal attraction

Chemical Friends. A title that should bring back memories of Puppet Rebellion's fine and forceful, musically riveting debut in 2013: it was back then that the band of five sent out their gloom-laden yet anthemic signature tunes to an eager audience – and, as it turned out, with aplomb; the confident and rousing sound of the tracks featured struck a chord with their listeners, still does today. Followed by two EPs ('No Means Yes' and 'Life Is In Your Hands', both dark and audacious, fervent and full of verve), the Manchester-based quintet finally dared the big leap by releasing a full-length record, going by the same name as their remarkable recording kick-off four years ago.

Andy K Leland - Happy Daze ... for charmingly lo-fi, charismatically distinct and delightfully dark musicianship

Italian roots. Ex-bassist of an alt-rock band whose music is anything but mellow and vulnerable in style. So, what is it that you expect when hearing the very same guy is about to release his first solo EP via Matonella Records

Interview: Burnz. When an soul-pop artist honors the musical 'Grace' & greatness of Jeff Buckley and when both he and his band can cross playing Glastonbury off their bucket list ...

What do Jeff Buckley and Joseph William Bernie of  Burnz have in common? The love and desire for making music that moves their audiences, easily, and while one has influenced the other's writing and approach towards the same, chances are quite high that both will share common ground once more in terms of entertaining a crowd with the sweet sound of 'So Real'; Jeff has back in the day, Joseph might do so tonight.
