The first 64 seconds or so of 'All The Rage' by The Royal We still remains one the finest intros of noughties indie, alongside the Los Campesinos! classic 'You! Me! Dancing!'. Roxanne Clifford of the former (relatively short lived) outfit would go on to find more sustained success in Veronica Falls, and is now unveiling her latest musical step. Listen to her debut single as Patience below.

Are You Listening Festival (Reading, 23 April '16) // Words: Saam Das


It's fair to say that Reading's Are You Listening? Festival is somewhat overshadowed by its geographically similar August-held music festival. But perhaps it shouldn't be. At just £15 for dozens of top notch bands across various venues, and none of the logistic issues of camping and what not, Are You Listening is certainly worth investigating.

We stumbled across upcoming Reading solo artist Eddie Prové (Pro-vay, Eddie you should be okay with) a few months ago off the back of the emotive 'Silent Love'. Listen to that track and stroppily-titled yet enrapturing newbie 'Never Cared' below.

Highasakite have that seemingly innate Scandinavian ear for a huge chorus, as evidenced by last year's terrific 'Keep That Letter Safe', which came in at #13 in my top tracks of 2015. Their newest single 'Golden Ticket' captures much of the anthemic qualities of the aforementioned track, with some dancefloor aspirations thrown in.
