Fresh off the back of supporting Counting Crows, Lucy Rose is off on another UK tour and, if her other performances are going to be anywhere near as good as her opening performance at Leeds’s Cockpit, boy are her fans in for a treat.
As the summer begins to wake up lazily from its never-ending sleep, stretching its arms to slowly banish the winter’s cold and grey clouds, Fossil Collective’s debut Tell Where I Lie acts as an ideal aid to the challenging and confusing transition period. 'What is this change in temperature?', I hear you say, is this what they call warm? Yes, this is warm, that is the sun, and here is some really lovely chilled-out acoustic music to ease you into this brave new world and help with unwanted withdrawal symptoms.
Gig Review: Kate Nash @ Cockpit Leeds - 'Charm, panache, and presence...but the punk label needs to evolve'Written by Jonathan Hand
On arrival, it was clear that Kate Nash’s shift to the realm of stereotypical punk has been met with a colossal army of pre-pubescent female followers.
Within the intimate milieu of The Cockpit, the crowd was dominated by a sea of aspiring female teenage punk rockers with the explicit intention of hearing the latest work from Nash; her third album ‘Girl Talk’ manufactured through her own private record label: ‘Have 10p Records’.
Beyoncé, an iconic superstar inducing quivers of envy, admiration and strength into young girls all over the world. So it is even more bizarre why she thought, 'You know what, I'm not quite Lady Gaga enough, time to 'bajazzle' my boobs!'
With the release of his new album, charting the explosive single in collaboration with Wretch 32 last summer, and a vocal ability that’s been compared to a young Gnarles Barkley, Josh Kumra is the one to watch.
You only have to listen to one track by the Leisure Society to discover how meticulous, precise and note perfect this band is; they are the definition of musical OCD. Currently on their UK tour celebrating the release of their album ‘Alone Aboard the Ark’, The Leisure Society tackled Leeds on a Sunday evening and their venue of choice was the hidden musical gem that is the Brudenell Social Club.
Writing for BounceSIN has been fun, it's wonderful getting my stuff posted online as I'm sure it will help for the future. However, one thing that I haven't been able to do since joining the writing team is do a bad review; I am a natural musical dick that is surprisingly hard to please. Basically, I love writing bad reviews - they are fun. Bit of background for my love affair of Killswitch Engage is needed for my next point: I loved all their old stuff with original vocalist Jesse Leach from 1999. Then he left and this dude called Howard Jones started shouting and singing and, in my eyes, ruined the band. Since Jones's debut in 2004 I have hated the band, and ever since I heard they were making a new album I have been looking forward to it because I would be able to rip it to shreds. But then something happened... Jesse Leach came back! And alas, my drought of writing bad reviews for this website carries on, because this is their best album yet and I am wonderfully surprised by that fact.
