REVIEW: Time, Conrad Ashton

Time,’ the latest single by Conrad Ashton, is a passionate folk and pop-influenced rock track. It has a vibrant and relatable feel and is perfect for anyone wanting to hear an enticing fusion of genres.
 
Lyrically, it’s a poetic and intriguing song which demands more than one listen. Conrad manages to create classic rock energy whilst still fitting in fluidly with the modern music scene. He describes his genre as “beyond basic rock and roll” which perfectly categorises this track.

"Beyond basic rock and roll"

Conrad says his goal for song-writing “is to spread the emphasis and the effect of each song to the listeners’ head, heart and body.” With a strong beat and catchy melodies, this track is definitely worth the listen for that reason. Although there are, of course, currently no gigs, he’d definitely be one to catch live once they are.

REVIEW: The Young Hearts, ‘The Modern State’

After a smattering of EPs across over five years, rising punk band The Young Hearts have finally dropped their debut album. According to frontman Craig Lawrence, the plan for this year was to power through the struggles facing so many bands right now and release another EP, but “after realising it could be the final release […], we decided that an album would be the most productive way for us to say everything we wanted to”.

Cat SFX and the hopeful return of punk.

Alan Mcgee told the NME that he wanted to sign “cocky little fuckers” for his Creation23 label again. This may apply to wannabe wee Gallaghers and the likes, but the “dark fruits” stereotype doesn't really do justice to his recent signing of culture critic, mental health advocate Cat SFX. Lead singer Caterina Speranza already has a fair amount of music industry experience. Having previously fronted a band called The Vincent Fiasco who opened for Interpol, Cat has come back 13 years later with more to say. According to McGee, “In a different time, she’d be a punk hero.”
