New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s New Music Roundup. We’re kicking things off with When She Flashes Her Smile at Me by Inwards. It’s taken from their forthcoming album Diesel which comes out on 27th April on Small Pond:

Jumanji headline the Haunt tomorrow night, playing the local date of their tour supporting their debut EP For Now which came out last Friday:

Next up is Heirloom with their new track Femme. You can catch them supporting Demob Happy this Saturday at The Haunt:

Ethan Barton is a songwriter originally from Devon but is now studying in Brighton. He released his More Happier EP in January, but didn’t promote it at the time and is now trying to get it out there, and we’re happy to oblige:

Luvia‘s debut single For You was released last Friday on My Little Empire records. If you’re going to the Great Escape then there’s a high chance of catching her – it seems that she’s playing at least three gigs over the weekend.

Scab Hand have a new EP out. Sparse Anatomy was released last week and was produced by Marc R Norris from Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster. Here’s EP opener Turkey:

Also out last Friday was Elaina Bel‘s new release So Far:

Tim Woodbridge got in touch with us at the end of last month to tell us about his upcoming single. It’s called Outside and is out now:

Sit Down released their Cheap Luxe EP at the end of March. Here’s opener Mothership. The next chance to catch Sit Down in Brighton will be at Bad Pond Festival at the end of this month:

Black Peaks single Can’t Sleep came out a few weeks ago, but we’ve been a bit slow off the mark. Sorry guys. They’re off on tour soon, but with no Brighton date announced. They’re playing plenty of festivals over the summer though, and who knows what else is left to be announced:

Wine Days is the new single from Sweetmates which came out on 23rd March. The band are playing at the Walrus on Thursday 12th as part of the Brighton Girl Fundraiser:

Swoon release their new EP Fun Police on One Inch Badge records on 30th May. The video for the lead track is out now:

No Feathers invited us along to their single launch last week but unfortunately we couldn’t make it. Instead, the best we can do is share the single, FRD BOI, here:

Breathe Panel released their new track Carmine recently. The band have an album coming in July on Fatcat Records which you can probably hear some of live when they play at the Spectrum Record Store Day gig at the Dome on 21st April:

Peace in Protest put out their debut single Backwards on 15th March. Their next gig is supporting Dove House at their EP launch at Sticky Mike’s on 18th April

Last, but by no means least we have Zofff who have put out their third album fff, continuing the psychedelic journey of their first two records. Live dates are in the pipeline, but nothing has been announced yet.
