So Young Issue Twenty-One
Festival season is upon us and as we cling on to memories of Brighton’s The Great Escape we look forward to a summer of our favourite bands, tents and warm beverages. Our twenty-first magazine welcomes Canadian Mixed Media Collective and most exciting live band around, Crack Cloud to the cover. We jumped on the phone with Mohammad of the group to dig into their ethos. If you’ve not heard about Squid yet then we’re not sure where you’ve been. We caught up with the UK’s busiest new band in a Cardiff Wetherspoons to talk influences, working with Dan Carey and enjoying what you play. We head to another ‘spoons to catch up with Crows. The London band have recently released their debut album via Joe talbot’s (Idles) label, Balley Records.
Amyl and the Sniffers have enjoyed an incredible 18 months and off the back of their double EP release, Rough Trade Records have picked up the Australian band to release their debut album. Staying in OZ, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are another band taking some time out following the success of their debut album, we jumped on the phone with Guitarist and Vocalist Fran Keaney. Emerson Snowe rounds off a trio of exciting sounds from Australia. He’s just released his debut EP and we caught up with him in Glasgow.
Dundalk’s Just Mustard quietly released their debut album last year and since then the noise around them is only getting louder, we chat to the band about how it all began. Back to London and back to old friends, The Rhythm Method. It’s certainly strange to think they’re only just about to release their debut album, and as they prepare to do just that, we give them a call about the album and their evolution. Pregoblin are one of South London’s most exciting new prospects. After the success of their debut single ‘Combustion’ we ask them about song writing conditions, living with Fat White Family and what’s to come. Pottery round off this issue’s interview features and we chat to Partisan Records’ latest signings about the scene in Montreal, Canada.
Review features include a look forward to Latitude Festival and as Black midi prepare to release their debut album at the end of June, we discuss their rise, their approach and what’s next for the band. Who Are You? returns and this time we chat to Body Type, Doobie Fontaine, Do Nothing, The Wants, Deliluh and more.
