Miami Monroe was a famous gardener who’s love for pop-punk grew into something much more special that potting a Petunia. He eventually grew so large from all the pop-punk, that his body gave birth to 5 brand new Miami Monroe’s. They went on to become a fast and energetic band, heavily inspired by the likes of Green Day, You Me At Six, The Bouncing Souls, and of course, Snoop Doggy Dogg. With one E.P. called “Knots & Crosses” (available in iTunes **wink wink**) under their belt, Miami Monroe are currently working on a second E.P. which promises to be faster, heavier and all played with guitars slung even lower. Check out Miami Monroe’s Facebook or give them a listen on Spotify or YouTube. Much Love xx
“Luciensghost shifted between chamber pop with strings in the verse and an angular, funky interlude in which Woody’s bass drove feet to dance! It morphed straight into Apocalyptic Antidote, a drilling march with disco guitar, whose chorus warned “There’s No Future Anywhere.” With more Glasgow gigs in the offing keep an eye out for more ghostly happenings .. The Sun; live review of headline show, ABC Glasgow, 19 Feb
What happens when a dressing gown wearing living room rockstar meets a recovering melancholic melody maker who can play guitar? They go for dinner with a drumstick wielding master of time and a swaggeringly off beat bass player and create Rhinoplast. The world will never be the same again. Rhinoplast are the musical embodiment of the problems and fears that face mankind in the modern age. From songs discussing their solace found in lonely nightclubs (Placid disco), flawed searches to find the perfect woman (She was a Peach Cobbler) and the niggling feeling of never feeling quite at home in this world (Nomads flag), Rhinoplast have earned their self proclaimed title as the pioneer sound of ‘Uncultured music for the cultured’.
As Magic Trik vocalist David McFarlane says, “rock n roll is a void that’s missing in the music world right now, and we’re bringing it back with a vengeance.” That’s what Magic Trik aims to do: take the new world of music by storm with old school rock n’ roll: blistering guitar solos, thundering drum fills, raw powerful bass licks, and vocals that express primal emotions and pull you into their songs. As the “Itsaxxxthing” blog says, Magic Trik are ready to “bring rock and roll to the masses”. The band have been relentlessly playing shows and touring all over the UK, opening for acts such as Altered Sky and Speaking in Shadows. Their message? Life may knock you down and push you into the corner, but rock n’ roll can save your life.
