You don’t often see a live session from a petrol station, but then there’s not always a band like NOISY lurking about.
Born down the road from us, we’re a little bit gutted that we weren’t filling up with petrol when this was being filmed. It’s a beat-ridden, boundary-free cluster of joyous noise and escapism.

Dark-pop artist Izza chronicles the ups and downs of dealing with anxiety and depression in a world where people are obsessed with the perceived perfection of their online selves, in new single ‘Lows’.
Bristol-based outfit Tungz shares shimmering new single ‘What For?’, taken from their exciting new, self-produced EP.
Channelling more of that bold and funk-filled direction throughout, their latest offering looks to cement this new EP as one of their most engaging and reassured releases to date with a notable psychedelic swagger.
Speaking about the new single, they say,
“This song is about letting your thoughts do their thing without worrying about it. The lyrics and melody came all at once one late night. The best way to hear your subconscious. We spent a lot of time on the drum production and rhythms to take it to our dance roots as a live band. We always knew this would be the opening track to the EP. Play it at all your parties.”
The EP ‘Why Do Anything?’ is out now via Heist or Hit. The band will also be playing a pair of socially distanced EP launch shows in November. Visit here for tickets and see details of both seated events below.

Bristol-based outfit Tungz shares the bright and psych-pop tinged single ‘Somebody To Get Shy With’, featuring our all-time favs and fellow Bristolians, Bad Sounds.
Bringing definite sunkissed vibes (much needed at this time, thank you very much guys) and a breezy attitude, we can’t get enough of their addictive swagger.
Speaking about the new collaboration, Tungz said,
“We’ve been fans of Bad Sounds for so long and always felt a spiritual connection to their vibe. We gradually got to know them through the Bristol scene going to each other’s shows and hanging out afterwards. So when the Tungzphone rang and the gang wanted to do a song with us we were buzzed as fuzz. We’ve only ever produced music at home so it was crazy to see the Bad Sounds mothership and sit side by side exploring new musical worlds. It was so cool to get to know the guys better, and bring into real life the connection we’d felt to them both as fans and Bristol music people. The song is about changing relationships: falling for a friend and not knowing how to deal with your new feelings.”
Nicole Chambers is confidence setting in her single ‘Warm Body’, taken from her debut album, ‘Voice of a Virgo’. A new voice on the R&B and neo-soul scene, with a killer falsetto that demands attention.
