Pyncher – The Saddest Man Around

With their latest single, Pyncher’s message is a simple, succinct and expertly executed one. When over a low slung, slow drag of a rhythm, vocalist and frontman Sam Blakeley declares presumptuously yet authoritatively that he’s ‘The Saddest Man Around’, which also happens to be the single’s title, we must admit we feel inclined to takeContinue reading “Pyncher – The Saddest Man Around”

Sugarstone – That’s Intense

Fuzzy distortion. Low rumbling electro squelches. Dance-metal beats and mosh-rock screams. The title of Manchester dreamy-electro hard-rockers Sugarstone’s latest single sums up the vibe entirely in two words – ‘That’s Intense’, although if the record was named after our reaction on our first listen the title would be: ‘Woah, That Was Fucking Massively Intense! LemmeContinue reading “Sugarstone – That’s Intense”

Lissy Taylor – She’s a Stunner

Lissy Taylor is an up-and-coming new singer-songwriter from Stoke-on-Trent via the USA via Manchester and her new single ‘She’s a Stunner’ is an empowering guitar track about a really fucking powerful and commanding, stunning and unidentified woman. With her north-west accent preserved, Taylor’s voice has the dreamlike brittleness of Ellie Goulding coupled with all theContinue reading “Lissy Taylor – She’s a Stunner”

Supera Morza – I’m Working It Out

Another single from an Edge of Arcady newbie favourite. For their third single, ‘I’m Working It Out’, Manchester’s Supera Morza have flung another essential grunge-pop, screeching bone-crusher at us, scaling Nirvana level heights, gullet-wrecking growls and confession that there’s something they’re trying to work out and “It’s all kinda shit”. Just as long as they’reContinue reading “Supera Morza – I’m Working It Out”

Turtle Park & Drego G – Peace of Mind

Pittsburgh, PA via Manchester, UK grunge pop maestros Turtle Park have bestowed on us their new EP, Peace Of Mind, this time specifically the creative work of members Addy P and Chicago’s Drego G. Addy P takes care of the complex beats and sings, as Drego G lends his distinctive, conscious rap to each andContinue reading “Turtle Park & Drego G – Peace of Mind”

The Turtle Park Interview

“It’s that realisation of a childhood dream that really drives my passion to be in this band and making music with these guys. Everyone told us once we reached adulthood we would have to quit. I feel that everyone decided that was fucking stupid and that’s not what we were gonna do.” Turtle Park areContinue reading “The Turtle Park Interview”
