New Bands of the Week – 15 July

In case you missed any of them this week we’re bringing you a round-up of all five of the bands we’ve featured as ‘New Band of the Day’ over the last week.

This little taster will hopefully whet your appetite to find out more!

The Krar Collective

London band The Krar Collective are an Ethiopian band based in London. They are a brilliant live band & have a debut album set for release in Autumn, one that’ll hopefully open them up to a wider audience, one outside of just the London Ethiopian community.

Razorblade Smile

Boisterous Glaswegian punk band Razorblade Smile have been around since 2008 but have yet to receive much attention (or even a label) ”“ until now.

Evans the Death

While Evans the Death have been around for a while now we thought it was time to bring them to your attention a little more fully. With punk pop riffs and a Smiths-esque turn of phrase this band have delivered a visceral but melodic debut. We caught up with them for a chat at the Indietracks Festival.


We caught new band FIDLAR ”“ fun, catchy, reckless and authentic punk rock ”“ on the bill at the CBGB festival and thought you should meet the band.


Leeds band Eagulls have been sending ”Ëœthe blogs’ into a tizzy since they first broke out in 2010 following a recommendation from their contemporaries Pulled Apart By Horses. We mentioned them briefly back in 2011 in one of Shell Zenner’s posts, now it’s time for a longer piece about the band.

So there you have it – five new bands for you to check out on your Sunday.

We also ran an article this week about old records outselling new ones for the first time in history. The question is, with great new bands like this out there – why?

We always have an ear out for new bands so if you think you’ve discovered something, know of a band who’ve been around for a while but deserve to be heard by more or simply want us to listen to something then leave us a link in the comments or message us on Facebook or Twitter.
