Info: Southampton-based three piece Superdrone embark on more dreampop/shoegaze with fourth album, SOLARGAZE, released in June 2020. For fans of MBV, Slowdive.
There’s nothing wrong in trying to emulate your musical heroes but to Superdrone, those bands were pushing boundaries, using the latest technology and taking music to places it hadn’t gone to before. “We love those bands but why stop there?” muses Ed Richards (vox/bass/songwriter). “Technology has moved on so much….let the music evolve too.”
Recorded during COVID lockdown via the power of the Zoom platform.

BAND: The Kecks
SONG: All For Me - out 23rd Oct - another exclusive!!
Cross continental Garage Rock purveyors The Kecks have emerged from Hamburg lockdown with their most self aware, emotionally powerful and poignant work to date, with new dark, raw, twisted, romantic fantasy ballad All For Me. Having once again teamed up with producer JB Pilon at London’s Buffalo Studio, the band have indulged a much wider array of their influences with this release, exploring the more flamboyant pop elements of their sound likened to the likes of Bowie, Pulp, and The Last Shadow Puppets.
Being hailed by Consequence Of Sound as “The Strokes of Hamburg” - The Kecks could actually lay claim to being the least German band in Germany, with a cross continental lineup of members originating from Australia, the UK, Austria, and southern Germany. Having initially been founded on the back of a FlixBus on their way to see The Growlers play in Berlin, The Kecks have since established a reputation for writing brutally honest and somewhat unconventional indie-rock that has landed them on Radio X, BBC Radio 6, Amazing Radio and Spotify editorial playlists.
BAND: The WRST
TRACK - Rheumy
WRST (pronounced "the worst") is a four piece garage, groove, gutter, gentleman's band based in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Formed in 2016 by a gross adoration for each other, nothing made more sense than to mash their musical styles and turn them into songs. Their influences include Fiona Apple, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, dive bars, Looney Tunes, and that little voice in your head that never shuts up.
Their debut full-length album "12 Legged Luncheon" is set to release early 2021.
