Totem - London, Total Refreshment Centre

This time last week Totem floored casual gig-goers turning up to see Crushed Beaks at London’s Lexington. Tonight’s single launch backs the band’s sawtooth punk intentions, linking up with that there mix the band put together for DIY Weekly.


Wanderlings - Bournemouth, 60 Million Postcards

Although it’s still early days for Wanderlings, this support slot alongside Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs is a big sign of things to come. Sharing a bright-eyed escapist glow with fellow Nottingham-ers Childhood, this South Coast dig is a chance to see the band in more intimate hangs.

Spring Blake - RideWMe

Blake Holland makes super sad songs, so strewn with tears they’re practically drowning. Using a Twin Peaks-ready sound for backing, the Nashville musician weaves in and out of consciousness, pouring sorry liquor all over his heartful, aqueous ‘beach pop.’ If this is Spring Blake’s beach pop, it’s like one of those beaches in Wales where nobody ever visits and it hosts more mysterious murders than BBQs. Grim, but oddly beautiful (not the murders in Wales part).


For folks who get narked at bands aiming big and writing songs catered beyond tiny cliques, this probably isn’t going to rub them up the right way. HUSKIES are a Nottingham group of good looking guys making songs for teens who’ll flock to arenas in no time at all to witness songs such as these being played to thousands. ‘Beach’ is Swim Deep gone even sweeter, like adding an extra flake to a 99p ice cream.
