Nordic Giant post rock muic Brighton review of music
I’m very excited. I first met Nordic Giants at Meadowlands Festival a few years back, whilst working as a stage manager. Since then I have been more than impressed by their stage presence, artistic creativity and sound. Could Nordic Giants be the perfect package? In terms of reviews for Art […]

Art Noise review Peter Mercer
11 is the debut EP from Peter Mercer, a London based acoustic act who isn’t afraid to blend soft synth electronica alongside his vocals and guitar. Tell Me is the stand out track for this, and it delivers an emotional soundscape that seems to have influences in both the folk and […]

Brighton music review Smallprint
  Smallprint Records classes itself as  a “future ambient” label, which is actually a perfect description for this compilation. The imperfect but slightly longer description is below. Listening will instantly transport you on to a starship, lazily drifting through a bright nebula, the viewing platforms large windows allowing you to see a […]

Gallivan band Brighton music
  There is something fun about this EP. I can’t quite put my finger on it. Something that reminds me of a circus side show. It’s the kind of rock that you can jump around to. I tried jumping around to it in my room but it didn’t quite capture […]

Adam Wedd – The Art of Interruption EP

Good Friday lived up to its name at Green Door Store, and the fact the show was free made it even more value for money. I have a lot of fond memories of Green Door Store, it’s the location of the first proper Art Noise event, and that show (back in […]
