New Album Release Round-Up

Album release round-up

Nina Nesbitt – The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change

The Swedish-Scottish pop artist has just released her second studio album, following 2014s ‘Peroxide’. She may have ditched the long, blonde hair, but that’s not the biggest change we’ve seen. Her catchy, guitar-based sound is a thing of the past, and she’s swapped it for an R&B/pop style. It was arguably the right move for Nesbitt, as the album has been widely met with adoration.

She’s going on tour this April, and you can get your tickets here.

SWMRS – Berkeley’s On Fire

The American punk rock band may have first become well-known due to the drummer (Joey Armstrong) being the son of Green Day frontman, Billie Joel. But they’ve quickly proved they have their own musical identity. Four studio albums on, and they’ve cemented themselves as their own band in their own right. With not one song sounding the same as the next, this album also showcases their versatility.

If you’d like to see them live, they’re going on tour in March and tickets are on sale here.

Drenge – Strange Creatures

As this is the bands’ third studio album, you’d assume Drenge’s sound would have changed, or evolved somewhat. Well, the assumptions are correct. The brothers have decided to experiment a little with electronics. Although they’ve stuck with the dark and ominous music style they’re known to write so well, they’ve also made the brave decision to change it up with this album. It’s familiar, while also different – which is exactly what you want from a band that’s now nine years old.

They’re heading out on tour soon, and a limited amount of tickets are still available here.

The Specials – Encore

The Specials are one of the most experienced British bands still releasing albums, having been making music intermittently since 1977. They’ve perfected their mix of ska, reggae and punk-rock, and have now released their eighth studio album. It’s the first in eighteen years and covers every subject, from Brexit to mental health. The band have never shied away from controversial and political matters, and continue to use these subjects to fuel their music.

If you’d like to see the band live, you get tickets for their spring tour here.
