“Candy Darling have hit the figurative tinderbox. Sounding as menacing as Suicide, their Martin Rev inspired keyboards support Emily Breeze's lyrics which are every bit as tortured as a Lou Reed/Trent Reznor hybrid" (N.M.E)
“The most fun you ever had whilst being told to go fuck yourself, mean assed, fizzing with electricity and winningly confident.” (Artrocker)
"Emily Breeze is a bona fide star. Her intense musical vision is a jaw dropping experience" (louder Than War)
"Fabulous" (Simon Raymonde, Amazing Radio/Cocteau Twins/Bella Union)
"Proper thrilling dark pop music" (BBC Radio Wales)
"Oppressive, driven, intoxicating. The incandescent Candy Darling bristle with so much menace, the whole place might just go up in flames"
"Simply an unmissable feature to behold" (God is in the T.V)
The John E Vistic Expirience
Dirty kneed, bloody knuckled blues and roll ... like a juiced-up Jagger whose libido has turned to bile, Vistics brand of raucous moon-howling don't need fixing.
Grunge -shoegaze-rock-pop-folk from local super group featuring members of Call the Doctor and Scarlet Rascal.
Oh, The Guilt
Brand new Bristol post-punk three piece - featuring members of Forgery Lit, Kalu Kalae and (the now-defunct) An Axe.
They weave ice cold atmospherics, rousing crescendos and crushing volume into waves of swooning beauty.
