BAND: Without Andrew
TRACK: Don’t Turn Away
Without Andrew are:
Without Andrew are a four piece punk rock band from Manchester, blending together the sounds of older punk rock with the more modern day pop punk of Green Day and Blink 182, as well as the vocal stylings of The Used, Creeper and Secondhand Serenade. Their new single ‘Don’t Turn Away’ is released on Monday 26th October. The song was born from songwriter Mat messing around with an acoustic guitar, singing the first line of the song and knowing there was something to build on. The song became a love story about the challenges between connecting and co-existing in a world so vast. Mat says of the single: “‘Don't Turn Away’ is a massive step forward in both our writing and performance ability, showing that we are able to write songs with impressive, difficult vocal melodies and interesting guitar parts that show off the ability of the band. I believe this is our best song to date."

SONG: All That You’ll Ever Know
CONTACT: Coventry’s finest anthemic rock n roll combo THE INSTITUTES release their

Coventry, feeling like we’re looking through a keyhole at a better life, and
dreaming, with knife edge hopes of escaping, to get a taste of ‘living in paradise’ ”.
This is the INSTITUTES first single for 42's Records.

When they released their second album, The Magical Mystery Machine (chapter 1), they were praised by both the audience and the reviewers.
Samuel Granath and Stefan Altzar created the first album - Consider it a work of art in 2018 and when it was time for touring Noah Magnusson and Daniel Magdic (Ex. Pain of salvation) joined the band. The first Magical Mystery Machine tracks were written in 2019 and the album was released on September 30th 2020.”

Downloads from the bands website are being donated to two mental health charities and HEAD ABOVE WATER merchandise from the bands shop are going too.
BAND Emperor of Ice Cream
SONG Everyone Looks So Fine
CONTACT Rarely (if ever) has a band’s debut album taken as long to reach its fans as No Sound Ever Dies by Emperor of Icecream; but perhaps theirs is no ordinary story. The album’s title alludes to the feeling within the band when a 2020 newspaper article elicited an emotional response from followers and ensured Cork’s FIFA Records thought it prudent to get the band members sitting around a virtual table.
Now based in Cork, Waterford, New York and Amsterdam, respectively Eddie Butt, John ‘Haggis’ Hegarty, Graham Finn and Colum Young, resolved to both delve into early releases from Emperor of Icecream and return to studio to put the finishing touches on a album that was shelved 25 years ago, when they prematurely parted company with their label, Sony Records.
They discovered a treasure trove of recordings and unfinished ideas that still sounded remarkably fresh despite the passing of time and began the process of completing a project that they had left Cork for London to work on during a heady period in the mid-nineties. Fledgling riotous performances and early demos had piqued the interest of several record labels, but Sony pipped them all to the post with a promising development deal, and the lure of London captured the imagination of the four young Cork musicians.
It resulted in three extremely well-received EPs (Overflow, William and Know Me) and recordings began with 'Fast' Eddie Clarke of legends Motörhead, who has contributed work on three of the new album’s tracks. No Sound Ever Dies kicks off as it means to go on with the title track from the William EP, and what follows is a musical petri-dish of shoegaze sounds, with touches of psychedelia and classic indie rock.
The two singles ‘Lambent Eyes’ and ‘Everyone Looks So Fine’ (which both enjoyed Number One positions in digital charts) are two gems on a rollercoaster Side A, while ‘High Rise Low Rise’ slows the pace down a little with its chilled Disintegration-like resonations. ‘Again and Again’ picks the pace up once more before the epic closer ‘Grow As You Are’ brings things to a crashing and fitting finale. Twenty five years in the making, the appropriately-titled No Sound Ever Dies is testament to that very notion, and a poignant end to this chapter for a band who may have once burned out, but didn’t fade away.
SONG: Carried Away
We are FAZE, a 5-piece neo-funk fusion band from London. Inspired by funk, feel-good and alternative artists like Parliament, Thundercat and Hiatus Kaiyote we write wacky, original tunes and are just about to release our debut single ‘Carried Away’ on November 12th.

BAND: Vanishing Lines
The VanishingLines is the brainchild of Ian Smith, ably assisted by Stephen Lawrie
(Telescopes) and Jake Taylor. ‘No Replacement Found’ is the debut album, a brooding
drone masterpiece recorded at The Kingdom of Heaven in deepest, darkest Shropshire, England. These are not so much ‘songs’ as feelings. Each piece is drowned in feedback and repetition, subtle nuances leap out at every listen providing space and claustrophobia in equal measures. Third Eye Mind.
BAND: James Saturn
SONG: I’m So Blue
I actually recorded this song in my car on Garageband, I've got more songs for an upcoming EP which were recorded exactly the same way.
I decided I really wanted to make a go of my music career and started song writing in my 20's. I now have my first single 'I'm So Blue Without You' out on all platforms and am currently trying to self promote it.

BAND Enola Gay
SONG Birth of A Nation
Belfast noise rock outfit ENOLA GAY release pulverising debut single “The Birth of a Nation”
Quickly making a name for themselves in Ireland, noise rock/post-punkers Enola Gay have
released their highly-anticipated debut single. Playing previously with Dundalk’s Just
Mustard for what was only their second gig, the Belfast quartet’s debut single
“The Birth of a Nation” comes in the wake of the death of George Floyd, with lyrics
addressing systematic oppression and how racism still spreads in the streets of Belfast. An
experimental remix has been made by PRS Techno Act of 2020, Mount Palomar, available October 9th .
Belfast based post-punk/noise rock 4 piece formed in late 2019. Socially aware vocals and a bed of reverb soaked buzz-saw guitar layered on top of a driving rhythm that draws as much
inspiration from left-field electronica as it does from post punk heroes of the late 70s / early 80s.
Enola Gay have already crafted a unique sound, described as a blend between Girl Band and IDLES, that has drawn widespread acclaim from key industry figures and music fans both north and south of the border. Opened for Just Mustard for what was only their second gig. They have recorded with Chris Ryan (Robocobra Quartet) who also recorded Just Mustard’s NME acclaimed album ‘Wednesday’.

They draw their inspiration from an eclectic library of pop, rock, goth, jazz and folk, as well as horror, poetry and real life. They like lists and commas.
