WATCH: The Orders – ‘Big Foot’

Don’t be seduced by the acoustic guitar & candles at the start of The Orders new video for ‘Big Foot’. The track’s deceptively quiet intro soon bursts in to a manic chorus; and the visuals mirror the band’s mildly unhinged, but highly contagious ability to craft…

WATCH: Courts – ‘True Say’

Here at Gigslutz, we know no-one works harder than Basildon five-piece Courts, so it’s always a joy to get fresh material from Chris, Dan, Joe, Luke and Reece. This time it comes in the form of a video for their track ‘True…

EP: The Coathangers – ‘Parasite’

Riot Grrrls get ready: Atlanta punk trio The Coathangers have released their latest EP Parasite via Suicide Squeeze, and it’s bursting with style, intent and attitude. The band first stormed on to the scene over a decade ago, but whether you’ve been there from the start,…

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’

Nick Bitzenis (aka Nikonn) is a London based music producer, songwriter, DJ and owner of UNDO records. To date, he has released four full-length albums, and his latest effort Effrosyni is an intriguing example of his ability to create edgy, cinematic electronic pop. The record’s name…

WATCH: The OBGMs – ‘Torpedo’

Blending 70s punk, new wave, and 80s garage with elements of breakbeat & hip hop might sound difficult; but Canadian basement punks The OBGMs have taken it in their stride and shared their explosive new track ‘Torpedo’ with an accompanying video directed…

NEW TRACK: The Scarletts – ‘In The Mirror’

Southend-on-Sea’s The Scarletts‘ released their debut single ‘In The Mirror’ last month via their own label Strange Day Records, and it’s a memorable, genre-binding new tune that’ll be spinning around your head for just shy of five minutes. The band’s velvety vocals and mix…

WATCH: Ezekiel Doo – ‘Twitcher TV (Weeder)’

Lo-fi Brighton band Ezekiel Doo have released a video for their latest track ‘Twitcher TV (Weeder)’ and it’s a strung-out, frustrated, moody new tune with a set of visuals that make chocolate milk and cornflakes look highly unappetising. It’s hard to delve in…

ALBUM: Cigarettes After Sex – ‘Cigarettes After Sex’

If you’ve been looking for a band that blends the androgynous, darkly poetic lyrics of Placebo, the melancholic songs from The XX’s first album, and the sensibilities of The Smiths; then look no further than Cigarettes After Sex. After the incredible…

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…
