Like a magician about to pull back the cloak or a bag of Haribo Star Mix, you just never know what you’re going to get with MUNKY. One of the more diverse (and fun) bands on the Irish music scene right now, MUNKY have been nothing but unpredictable in their short existence. And now they’re back with… “Megaton” dun dun dun! (insert high-pitched screams). Out … Continue reading MUNKY are back with a brand new banger!
The Irish music scene has been flourishing of late, with many of our homegrown, DIY bands even making it on the international stage. Almost every week now we hear of another act coming through that “you just have to hear!” Some stand out more than others. And that’s where Skinner find themselves. Having only released one single before today – “Headroom” – they’ve no less … Continue reading There’s no ignoring Skinner’s new single
I’ve said it before (though not often enough) that Protomartyr are one of the leading post-punk bands in the world right now. The four albums they’ve released to date prove it, and if one song was to encapsulate their greatness, it may just be “Night-Blooming Cereus”.

The delicacy of life which you are only reminded of when what you thought would last forever is swept away like sand from the palm of your hand. Brutal, yes, but part of life. And The Murder Capital know it. Post-punk past and present When I Have Fears has been a long time in the … Continue reading The Murder Capital: When I Have Fears
Cardiff’s Boy Azooga are either a one-man band or a quartet depending on your music source. Either way, the music is what matters most. Having released 1, 2, Kung Fu! in 2018, Boy Azooga established themselves (I’m going with the group) as one of the most exciting up-and-coming bands in the UK. On 1, 2, Kung Fu! you find an unrestricted sound that Boy Azooga … Continue reading Boy Azooga – 1, 2, Kung Fu!
The latest of many up-and-coming post punk bands that I can’t stop listening to, Egyptian Blue, came to my attention through The Murder Capital. They recently released their debut EP Collateral Damage and that’s where we pull our Track of the Week from. “Collateral” was the first single released from the EP and is a solid lead track. These guys certainly have a lot of … Continue reading Egyptian Blue-Collateral
