Give Me a Chance – The Miracals – First up is the title track of the Californian quartets brand new five track EP. It’s rammed with sweet guitar melodies, perky beats and harmonious vocals that evoke long summer days and nights spent with High School friends and childhood sweethearts.

Wake Up Old – Olympians – Two feet in London, two feet in Norwich, Olympians are one part Weezer, one part brass band, one part Proclaimers, and one part Alan Partridge. Actually they are none of these, but they are great.
Look out for an interview with the band on Flush the Fashion very soon, in the meantime visit www.onwardolympians.com
No room for heroes – Coastal Cities
Having spent the last 2 years honing their talents in a garden shed, someone opened the door over the summer, and after a series of local live shows and an EP ‘Transgressions’, the band (all still under 18) now have world domination in their sights.

Making Plans – City Reign
Manchester band City Reign have the fire of indie gods in their bellies. With a small dash of Idlewild and a large dash of their own potion the band are attracting strong radio play from the likes of Steve Lamacq.

Push it – Duologue – Not a cover of the Salt n Pepa ‘classic’ but a brilliant new track taken from the recently released EP entitled A – B (Wild Game Records). Shades of Moloko, Radiohead, The Infadels, and Foals, mixing electronic music with guitars can be a tricky thing to get right. Duologue have not only mastered the art, they are leading the way forward. NB: apologies to the band member who was cut in half on our pic.
