INTERVIEW: Tired Lion

Tired Lion have released only a handful of songs in the UK, but I was keen to know more about the band who had flown half way across the globe to play a free gig at The Old Blue Last on a…

NEW TRACK: Hydra Lerna – ‘Clean Like You’

Hydra Lerna is a one-woman-show, writing, recording and producing all of her music from her home studio/bedroom. She’s just released a new track titled ‘Clean Like You’, and it’s a catchy slice of electronic pop. The song explores the emotions associated with trying to…

WATCH: Little Cub – Hypnotise

South London trio Little Cub have shared a video for latest track ‘Hypnotise’ – and as the name implies – it’s a mesmeric, politically charged montage that visually articulates the band’s anti-establishment lyrics. They’re set to release their debut album Still Life on 28th of…

VIDEO PREMIERE: DIDI – ‘Sorry’

Not many twenty-one year olds can say they’ve been playing in bands for eleven years, but DIDI (aka Lauren Deakin Davies) has extensive experience in creating and producing her own music. She self-released her debut single ‘Sorry’ last week, and here at Gigslutz we’re excited to…

NEW TRACK: Cassava – ‘Long Way Home’

‘Long Way Home’ is the latest release from Southampton rockers Cassava, and it’s three and a half minutes of manic indie guitar and anthemic vocals. The four-piece recently supported Milburn (one of their favourite bands) at The Engine Rooms in their hometown,…
