Under the moniker of We Show Up On Radar, Andy Wright, produces some of the best indie folk on the planet and is frequently championed by BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens. Andy’s second full-length album, ‘WSUOR’, emanates a child-like wonder but takes very mature, adult heartbreak and bitterness and imbues it with fresh imagery and candor.
“The concept of sister-doom is sort of like a spirit that drives us to do what we do” the pair finish up “It’s sort of that feeling you get when you’re stood in a dark, empty house with all the lights turned off. A figure suddenly appears in front of you and your eyes try to work out if it’s real or not. It’s sort of that adrenaline you get from the unknown. Like something you shouldn’t do but you just want more.”
The sparse woodlands and open skies of East Suffolk are not regarded by many as creative hive of musical activity. In fact some would venture to say that there’s nothing there. But then again they would be wrong. Out of the quaint town of Halesworth and surrounding hamlets emerges a force to be reckoned with. A shrouded being of intricate guitar work, howling vocals and piercing brass. The extension of 7 creative minds allowed over the years to mature and develop together are what makes up the sonic, melodic and artistic vision that is Solko. Merging genres from dub rock, to psychedelia to indie, Solko have spent 10 years honing their craft and bidding their time.
Late 2015 saw the release of ‘DOG’ which was highly praised by BBC6 music presenter Tom Robinson. Solko are set to record and release more new material in 2016.
“a real lesson in smooth jazz mixed in with some soul for good measure” – It’s All Indie
“Mixing sensational funk-infused soul pop melodies with unique and vibrant vocal tones, Solko are an interesting blend of all the good new things popping up in today’s UK music scene.” – The Blue Walrus
“Their sound is much bigger than any visions of the picturesque countryside” – Gigslutz
“classy jazzy rhythm section, terrific, bouncy guitar lines finished off with sleazy saxophone” – B-Side Magazine
“Solko are refreshingly different, enjoying a collision of their more traditional and less contemporary fusions, with a bag of tunes that are emotive, carefree and just downright interesting.” – Music Dash
No Nothings are a tour-de-force of speed-garage-punk-rock-psych-goodness injected straight through the eyeballs. Rising from the ashes of Kingston-Upon-Hull sweethearts, Mother, No Nothings hit hard with a dose of Iggy & The Stooges, Minor Threat, QOTSA. The band’s track ‘A Country Song’ featured on the PS4 racing game Gran Turismo Sport. Check out the new music video below:
