EP: Thin Lizard – ‘Swan Songs’

If “pop nonsense from the heart” sounds like your kind of thing (and why wouldn’t it?) we highly recommend you acquaint yourself with Londoner Thin Lizard (aka Oli). Although initially he had no intention of releasing his music to a wider audience, we’re glad he’s…

ALBUM: Nikonn – ‘Effrosyni’

Introducing Interview: SUSPECTS

Cool Thing Records are proud to present the latest addition to their musical family: Suspects. The punk-inspired duo from Southend have been creating music under the radar for a while, but they recently premiered their debut single ‘Innocence’ online with the almighty Kerrang! Radio X…

INTERVIEW: Courts

We’ve been following Basildon band Courts for a while now and each time they release a new single, we’re consistently impressed by the feel-good, original nature of their tunes. ‘True Say’ is their latest offering, and it’s another humble, high energy track that…
