Twenty One Pilots Clancy album review: If it ain’t broke….

Coma 54 get melodious with new release ‘Flow’

COMA 54, the Irish-born, Berlin-based band who insist that they're grunge, come back with more heavy guitars mixed with finely tuned harmonies and an ear for a good melody. I'll let them have the grunge label if they like, and there are definite touches of the...

abracadabra – Guess who’s back

There's a lot of good things and a lot of bad things that you can say about Eminem aka Slim Shady, and I'd have to agree with all of them. But before he lost his sense of humour, he was always riotously funny, and let's face it, the man could rap. Well, he's back....

New single Elysées from indie newcomers Bonheur

Elysées, the latest single from up and coming indie band Bonheur, comes as a surprise. From this group of young and boisterous indie kids I'd expected something upbeat and jangly, but Elysée is a love song that's absolutely wreathed in a sense of loss and sadness. The...

Perfectly put together: Rapture by Coma 54

The new song from indie grunge band COMA 54 takes all of fifteen seconds to establish their credentials as well as their intent: this is going to be hard-hitting grunge-influenced heavy rock (first five seconds) that jumps to poppish, catchy half-rapped bits where the...

manifesto

who we are. what we think. why you should join us.

“This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream and share your passion.”

– The Holstee Manifesto.

Until we finish our own, this one works pretty well as a placeholder 🙂
