Sick Love, Baby, It’s You!

Sick Love, Baby, It’s You!

'I'm So (Fucked Without You)' is the fourth track from Sick Love's no-holds-barred EP, 'Baby It's You', which this track completes. It's a major rock anthems alert, every song, with this band. As 21st Century up and comers go, they are easily one of the sickest of the slickest. Photography by marthas_picsx With 'Im So...", Rebecca Geary's voice entices us gently by a small side door into the aircraft hangar sized space that Sick Love fill to capacity with this song. Straight to any lockdown escapism with the increased relevance of the "so fucked without you" sentiment. You can hear, taste and feel the energy shaking this EP. Turn it UP. Sick Love trade in songs we can relate to. They are "The Band Next Door" in our ears and…

Dirty Orange ‘Fold’

Dirty Orange ‘Fold’

New BritRock single 'Fold' is the full hand! Dirty Orange? Filthy, more like! Accompanied by an instant fave video. Affordable, DIY multi media tech rules 2020. With no gigs, quarantine has gone beyond being a great leveller to a personal insight as to why Britain has stayed (mostly) caring and compassionate, even with a shifty sociopath part timer in Drowning Street: Music lovers are creative, fun lovers! From highly personal and stripped down live streams to the fans-and-friends family videos, we have never been so 'All In It Together'. Aww, Dirty Orange have got a bunch of charismatic, potential Brit-flick stars in their story. I'm just really lifted by the songs energy and this gang: https://youtu.be/7Y-daSEYAdY Clocking in at around two minutes of sandpaper punked guitar blasting dynamics, 'Fold' is…

Lockdown Look Up

May 2020 #FuturePicks: Ms Mohammed, Idealistics, Beckie Margaret. Three musical truths against the grain of the post-truth age. Ms Mohammed Meet a living battery with which to recharge the world, the goddess force is strong in this one. Ms. Mohammed is a Queer Trinidad Brit Soca Punk Star who is fierce and feisty, kind and tasty. All in one politicised and articulated charisma.

Having started so many musical fireworks with her Clit Rock band and DJs nights, then playing our Tin Pan Alley show with deux furieses. Officially hooked. By 2018 Iggy Pop, DecoloniseFest…
