Live Review: This Feeling at The Macbeth

Sophie and The Giants, Blackwaters and Yonaka bought life, music and energy to a Thursday evening at The Macbeth, each performing for This Feeling in aid of the charity Cyber Smile, chosen charity by Yonaka.  Sophie and The Giants kicked off the evening, with lead singer Sophie’s vocals soaring through the packed out crowd. Dainty and elegant, with a singing voice that could silence a football crowd, Sophie’s powerful stage presence and stunning talent was backed by a fantastic band, made up of Toby (guitar), Chris (drums), Bailey (bass). The charisma between bands mates was very clear while watching the set, each member laughing, joking and interacting with each other, all while keeping up the rhythmic and building music, owning the stage and giving the audience a reason to dance as they finished with the closing track on their new EP, ‘Bulldog’.…

Elly goes Club Fandango ft. China Bears and October Drift.

Elly goes Club Fandango ft. China Bears and October Drift.

The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington was packed, with barely enough space to walk down the stairs and into the venue itself. Jazzy beats of indie band Shrimp Eyes could be heard drifting out the room. Finishing their set with a smile and a thank you, they were met with huge appreciation from the audience and after a short break were followed by ambient-indie rocks China Bears. Taking to the stage, the beautiful vocals of lead singer and guitarist Ivan, along with backing vocalists Frazer (guitar), James (bass), and Dean (drums) silenced the room. Their ethereal sounding music and raw lyrics left goose bumps on watching crowd members, as they created an enchanted like atmosphere, delicate and tantalising, but with rockier elements, as the sound dipped and dived in pace and rhythm. With the announcement that new music was to be released…

Don’t erase, just rewind with The Cardigans…

Don’t erase, just rewind with The Cardigans…

Saffron, Shirley, Polly Jean. These are just a few names of the formidable women that helped shape the 90s (and music) for the better, simply by being themselves in an industry that perhaps weren’t ready for them, and what they had to offer back then. Another notable lady, is Nina Persson and her clan aka The Cardigans. Formed in Jonkoping, South Sweden, this delectable group brought attitude and an edge that was very different from the norm at the time, but still made them successful.  After a knockout tour in December, celebrating the 20th anniversary of platinum-selling album ,”Gran Turismo”, they have now announced on the 1st of February, the band is doing a complete re-issue of all 5 of their studio albums. Not only that, it’s going to be remastered on Vinyl LP, 2 of which have…

In Depth: Weird (Ears) is the new Wonderful

Anyone who was at our The ZineUK music social back in March 2018, would remember our ace line up, and the impact of our headliners The Nyx. Since then, there have been many changes for the band. First and foremost, their name has changed to... Becky and Simone are currently on the road travelling Europe with their trusty Snail (home van). These two formidable women, got in touch with me last week, and asked if TheZineUK would like a conversational update about what has been going on. Of course, we were happy to oblige! Thanks to technology, they were able to park up on the side of a road in France. Their drummer Kayleigh (still in the UK), was kind enough to free up some time during work and join us too. This doesn’t…
