“Come Party” with the Polish Club

“Come Party” with the Polish Club

Entertainment, Music
“Come Party.” In the hands of howling Sydney guitar-drums duo Polish Club, it's not so much a polite invitation as an offer you can't refuse. A hyperventilating dose of pistol-shot drums, singing cymbals, double-time guitar grunt and sweet go-go shimmy, it's the king-hit this summer can't live without. For those who came in late, Polish Club have been gate-crashing polite company since 2015, when drummer John-Henry and turbo-vocal/guitar frontman Novak acted on a hunch in a Sydney garage and wound up setting fire to every festival stage in Australia. ‘Come Party’ follows the double A-side whammy of ‘Able/Beeping’ into the global market ahead of an imminent debut album, ‘ALRIGHT ALREADY’, which has already sealed the blister-fingered duo's reputation as formidable festival conten
Are Chapel the craziest band at Slam Dunk?

Are Chapel the craziest band at Slam Dunk?

Don't take it the wrong way, crazy ... in a good way, we love those dudes. Carter and Kortney, or better, Chapel, decided to delight Slam Dunk fans with a crazy set across the entire weekend on the Rocksound Breakout Stage. Fresh off their US tour with Sleeping With Sirens, we met them in Birmingham to discuss about brunch, drinking and ... mountains. Fun Facts? During the process of transcribing this interview, we realised that Carter said he likes Sal's sweater 6 times within 12 minutes. Kortney mentions the word "mountains" 5 times which we had to cut out.  Also, I was expecting them to show up covered in maple syrup, it didn't happen. Last day of Slam Dunk, how was it? Tell us all. Kortney: It's been amazing, last time we were in the UK was one of the best tours we ever did

Canada is well known for producing the greatest artists and band. To name a few? Sum 41, Simple Plan, Nickelback, and  .. Selfish Things, with the release of their EP Vertical Love, they deserve a place on the list. We met with Alex Biro at Slam Dunk Midlands and he told us about the EP and the beginning of the band, he also told us about love, he told us about accepting who you are and understanding that being angry is okay. Definitely a great act at Slam Dunk on the Acoustic Stage, Selfish Things have put the roots to establish their music in the UK. How are you? I am okay actually, a bit tired. We did 56 days around the US before this, I have a meeting tomorrow. Then I fly back to Canada for two weeks then summer festivals. I am also planning a wedding, because I am gett

When Homesafe hit Slam Dunk …

Entertainment, Music
When they offered me to interview Homesafe at Slam Dunk, of course I accepted. Straight from Chicago, the land of Real Friends and Knuckle Puck, these guys know how to hold the crowd and make everybody go wild. We're lucky enough to have experienced it at this year's Slam Dunk. The band will release the album "One" on June 29th via Pure Noise Records and here's what they told us about it. Why have you decided to release "Run"? Emanuel: We had a follow up to "Vanilla Scented Laser Beams" with some sort of like same energy, just to keep it going and flowing. We feel like "Run" was the perfect song. Joe: It's a quicker song for Homesafe because for whatever reason is, we write really long songs. We can't write a song that is a minute and a half long. We never do. "Run" was a good ...
