New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s new music roundup, as eclectic as always. First up is Mayday by The Go! Team, which we’ve previously featured the audio of, but there’s a proper video for it now, and it also gives us a chance to remind you all that their gig this weekend has been moved to the Concorde:

Next up is Bird in the Belly, whose new single Give Me Back My Heart Again came out last Friday. It’s taken from their debut album The Crowning which comes out on March 23rd. You can catch them playing at The Village on 1st March :

Relax is the new Doves-esque single from Breathe Panel, out now on Fatcat records:

The Isle of CC released a new single at the end of January on Tapeline records. It’s called Listen and you can, erm, listen on Spotify below. If you want to hear more, The Isle of CC will be playing at the QM Records Spectrum night coming up on February 22nd at the Basement.

The Touch is the first single taken from the new Thieves by the Code album from Ava’s Revenge. The single is out now, the album comes out on 14th March:

wuuad are releasing a six track self titled EP on 17th February. In advance of that they’ve shared EP opener Cathedral. The single launch is up in London, but the band are playing Brighton gig on Feb 24th at Brighton Electric with Ezekiel Doo, PUSSLIQUOR, Gloomz and Grymm also on the bill.

I Feel Fine are a new emo band who have just released their debut single entitled Everyday Safari:

Strange Cages release their new single Hypothalamus Blues on 16th Feb, and are lanuching it at a late gig at the Green Door Store on Feb 23rd. Listening to the six minutes of bluesy psychedelia, it only seems right that it’s a late show.

Nick West has been working under a number of different aliases over the last few years, but has recently settled in Brighton and has started releasing music under his own name. The first track as himself is the synthpoppy The Watcher, whose lyrics draw upon his experience of depression:

February Gig Previews

27024292_1758823704148932_4865391248267470806_oSo, that’s January pretty much done with, which means it’s time for our February gig roundup. First up is an all dayer at the Green Door Store this Saturday from our friends over at Brighton Noise. Thanks to the Facebook event saying “in no particular order” we can’t quite work out who’s headlining out of Dirty White Fever, Breathe Panel, Garden Centre, Penelope Isles (playing songs from their individual solo projects), Leatherhead, Tilt, Merlin Tonto, Perch and the National Intelligence Agency, but we trust their judgement and it’ll be great whatever you get to see.

The big gig for us this month is the Go! Team, who have had the venue upgraded for the hometown show of their tour to the Concorde 2 (so please don’t go to the Haunt!). They’re supported on 11th February by Neon Saints Brass Band (who are also on their great new album) and Berlin’s Gurr.

The following night (Monday 12th February) promoters Hot Wax and Tigmus to put on this months Locals night at the Prince Albert. This time round that’ve got Hanya, Circe, Tuval and Olivia May Green on the bill. Then on Wednesday 14th why not take your valentine to Rixson Music’s Support Your Local Girl Gang night at Sticky Mike’s where CLT DRP are headlining.

As well the Go! Team, another of one of Brighton’s heavy hitting bands are playing – If you’re lucky you will have got yourself a ticket to see British Sea Power play at the Concorde 2 on 20th. Unsurprsingly, It’s sold out.

Finally, our last recommendation is the Strange Cages single launch on February 23rd, where they’re playing CBGBs night at the Green Door Store to celebrate the launch of their next release Hypothalamus Blues, with support from Guru and a DJ set from Wytches.
