SPQR

Freneticism thy name is SPQR. Liverpool art-rockers SPQR may not be household names yet but an instance of their music, and you’re immediately swayed by the controlled chaos they exude. The band recently unveiled the video for the track “Our Mother’s Sons” and it is a perfect example of their brand of musical discord.

The track is from their upcoming 4-song EP Long Sun Long Shadows, due out April 26th on Modern Sky UK.

SPQR is the work of frontman Peter Harrison, who says the frenetic work of the band comes out from the connection he has with a myriad of emotions, something that comes naturally;

“I like to express myself. And—even though having this super strong connection to my feelings is a fuckin’ burden on my life—I do feel like it helps me to write, because they’re all just there.”

Yet while he says he connects easily with his feelings, he just wants SPQR to “be whatever we want it to”, and that he’s “all about creative freedom”.

It won’t take you long to connect to SPQR. The band recently performed at the BBC 6music Fringe Festival and will take part in next month’s Liverpool Sound City Festival.

Hangtime share “Can I Take You Out” video

There’s no escaping the 90s sound

Not too long ago we had a short chat with Canadian pop-punk band Hangtime about their new EP and the video for the track “One Nine Nine Five”. The aptly titled song is a throwback to a pop punk thought long gone but as this Toronto band will attest, is by no means dead. Now the band have debuted their new music video for the track “Can I Take You Out”; a sweetly romantic, melodic pop punk ode.

The track is a cut from their 2019 EP Invasion, which you can pick up via Bandcamp. Hangtime have a couple of upcoming Canadian shows on the horizon; with all the details available on their Facebook page.

When we spoke to the band and where their sound comes from, guitarist/vocalist Warren Gregson explained their influences;

“There’s no escaping the 90s sound I’m afraid, that’s just who we are. Actually, our biggest influences go back further than that. Most of us were first listening to bands like ALL, Misfits, Dag Nasty, Big Drill Car, Bad Religion, Doughboys, Nils… etc, back in the 80’s. I suppose that’s where the 90s sound for many other bands originated as well.”

Check out the new video and let’s reminisce about some good old school pop punk.

New York indie rockers Longwave are returning with their first album in a decade. Titled If We Ever Live Forever, the album is the follow-up to 2008’s Secrets Are Sinister. The band have recently been releasing new music over the last year, with the single “Stay With Me” hitting airwaves in October of last year. Longwave have now revealed the music video for the new song “If We Ever Live Forever”, which you can view above.

If We Ever Live Forever is due for release October 25th via Bodan Kuma Recordings and will be followed by a short run of dates through the eastern side of North America. You can pre-order the new Longwave album from the band’s webstore.

Longwave first burst on to the scene with 2000’s Endsongs, but really started making waves with their 2003 release The Strangest Things (which included the hit single “Tidal Wave”). The latter was the band’s major label debut for RCA Records. We last covered Longwave in 2005, reviewing their terrific album There’s A Fire.
