As you will probably know, the Covid-19 crisis has utterly ravaged the music industry. Artists all across the nation have been dealt an incredibly heavy blow by the pandemic, with canceled or rescheduled shows resulting in a loss of income and other financial difficulties due to non-refundable bookings and other expenses. However, it’s not only the musicians that are being effected by this. With every cancelled show, tour managers, sound & light...

The figureheads of the South Wales alternative scene Holding Absence have released their video for their new single ‘Gravity’ today along with announcing a surprise new 7” LP that will be released next month exclusively via their website.

Bristol math rock three-piece Sœur’s (7.5) first set of the weekend was colossal. The harmonies of vocalist/guitarists Tina Maynard and Anya Pulver were hauntingly beautiful, a perfect juxtaposition with their meaty riffs. They flew through old favourites including ‘Fight’ and ‘Slow Days’ and treated us to newer material too. Their latest single, ‘Do What I Want’ sounded huge with the audience singing the words back to the band....

The Welsh scene is strong at the moment and a resurgence of young bands after a lot of bands fell off the radar. Bands like Dream State and Holding Absence have paved the way for further bands to start stepping up but we are now in a time where we are seeing the bands mentioned above step into debut album time and it’s an exciting one. Holding Absence have recently dropped their debut self-titled album and it has received fantastic reviews. Now o...

Though long, winding, and at times arduous - the road to the debut album for Holding Absence was worth travelling down. The band are an anomaly, producing what will undoubtedly be a very strong contender for Album of The Year. Taking two years to lament over the self-titled album’s topic (a real-time narrative of a relationship breaking down due to mental illness), the cliché phrase “brutally honest” is the only term fitting to describe the exten...

Cardiff starlets Holding Absence have announced a new, self titled album that will be coming next year, as well as a UK tour in support of the record with Capsize

On the bands newly announced album, vocalist Lucas Woodland said: "After what feels like the longest time, we are incredibly happy to announce our debut self-titled album, “Holding Absence”. Lyrically and musically, we have pushed ourselves so hard to have an album that we fully...

Despite the odd smattering of precipitation which may have just been the result of the date being Friday the 13th, the second day of 2000 Trees 2018 was fantastic. With sets from Grumble Bee, Vodun, Creeper, Touche Amore, Jamie Lenman, Twin Atlantic and many, many more, you can imagine what went down. 

Multi-instrumentalist and producer Jack Bennett performs under the alias of Grumble Bee (8). He opened the Forest...
