Quirky indie rockers ‘Walk the Moon’ took over the cockpit stage on Sunday 24th February, and brought with them one of the most excitable crowds that the Cockpit has probably ever seen.
Scotland is a massively underestimated breeding ground for incredibly talented musicians. The likes of Biffy Clyro, The Proclaimers and Annie Lennox - to name but a few - have all grown up in the freezing cold, tartan-wearing country, before making a considerable mark on the British music scene. Most recently, however, Scotland has produced arguably one of their best artists yet: Emeli Sandé. Sandé has blown people’s minds up and down the country with her debut album ‘Our Version of Events’, which topped the UK album chart for 5 weeks and went Platinum twice.
For a band to play on the NME tour, you would expect it to take several years on the gigging circuit and countless failed mistakes. Although this is true for the members of Peace whilst in several different bands, astonishingly the band itself has taken only two years, which demonstrates the grafting and hard work they have put in in order to make a career out of something they love.
Irish Music f****** rules, and Hudson Taylor are leading the pack. Their folk-pop esque sound combined with unique vocals and passionate performances make this duo a very exciting prospect for 2013 onwards.
‘You know it’s a good gig when sweat is dripping off the ceiling'. This statement sums up perfectly Sunday 3rd February when Dub Rockers, Modestep graced Manchester Academy’s stage.
Heavy hitting dub rockers Modestep are currently making their way around the UK tearing up venues left right and centre ahead of the release of their album 'Evolution Theory'. We caught up with the guys shortly before their second performance of the tour in Manchester. Here is what they had to say:
Ladies and gents, it’s that time again. The motherboard for all things Drum & Bass: Hospitality is here and set to blow minds across the UK. With a line-up worthy of making grown men squeal, it’s certainly going to turn a few heads.

Nowadays, Modestep need little introduction. These dub rockers from London create a sound which would make your gran shudder with fear; they are truly one of a kind, setting the stage alight with every show. After having a hugely busy summer conquering festivals all across the globe, hype has been rapidly growing for their long awaited album, 'Evolution Theory', which will finally hit the shelves on 11th February. I was lucky enough to have a preview of the album and it is safe to say that, well, it tore me a new one.

It felt like ‘Everything Everything’ blasted on to the scene in 2010 from nowhere with their album ‘Man Alive’. Radio 1 immediately lapped them up, which consequently had people all over the country wondering what exactly they were listening to. With a sound that compares to few other artists out there, Everything Everything have thrown discordant pop hooks, synth and distinctive falsetto vocals slap bang in people’s faces causing mass panic from the likes of Justin Bieber’s ‘Beleibers’ due to their alien sound.
