Introducing... Glory Fades

glory fades, late in the day, alt rock, wolverhampton, rock, grunge, underground, under, ground, glory, fades, message, 606

Glory Fades are an alternative rock band from Wolverhampton, despite being very time poor they have found the time to craft a brand new EP, Late in the Day, and it's very good. There's clearly some heavier influences with the song Message being my personal favourite on the EP, there's a plethora of influences on this EP and if you're looking for some very grungy, underground alt-rock then I'd definitely recommend checking out their new EP!

Question. The EP has been out a few weeks now, how do you guys feel about that?
Glory Fades:
We are excited. Its been a long time coming so its great to have our tracks out there.

Q.Do you get nervous or excited before release?
GF:
It was our first release and we are/have been very excited. No nerves about the release at all

Q. Which musician would you say was the biggest influence on the EP?
GF:
I'm not sure really, as a band we all have different influences and listen to a lot of different music. No one/ band in particular has influenced it more than the other

Q. What's the meaning behind the title of the EP (Late in the Day)?
GF:
We found naming the EP really tough. Firstly we thought it sounded good. It made a lot of sense as this is something we have all wanted to do for a long time and finally accomplished it. We aren't kids anymore so felt like it was a long time coming! 

Q. How would you describe the EP?
GF:
That's tough, we'll leave that to you or anyone listening to it!

Q. What was the biggest hinderance of making an EP?
GF:
The biggest hinderance is probably time and money. We all have jobs, families and general commitments which make it tough to get enough time all together to get the ep recorded. Its not cheap making a record

Q. What's the best thing about being a part of Glory Days?
GF:
The best thing is probably getting to hang out with great mates doing something we love.

Q. What artists/albums are you listening to the most lately?
GF:
Across the band we are listening to lots of different music, Thrice and Brand New are generally always being listened to. The Front Bottoms, Microwave, Jimmy Eat Word, stuff like that

Q. What are your live shows like?
GF:
Rare! we have only got a few under our belts to date but we are keen to start gigging more frequently. 

Q. What's your favourite live show?
GF:
Favourite live show is tough, Everyone has different favourites, We all love festivals in general Festivals is a big aim for the band.

Q. Which song do you wish you'd written, and why?
GF:
Limousine by Brand New. Its simply just an amazing track!

Q. Now the EP has been released, what's next for the band?
GF:
We are currently booking some gigs in and trying to get our music heard. We have also started writing tracks for the next EP. Wr are hoping to start recording it before the end of the year.

KMMR's TOP 50 ALBUMS OF 2018 // 40-31

And then we move into the 30s, the self-titled pop extravaganza that this is. If you haven't read the previous installments then check them out below:
Honourable Mentions Albums 50-41
40. Bad Sounds - Get Better

I was hoping for a little more from this album but there's no longevity to it whatsoever. Whilst there are some incredibly funky and fantastically produced songs, it doesn't quite pull the album through. Nonetheless, tunes such as "Milk It" and "Wages" are some proper stompers that would make a songs of the year list if I made one.
39. Tom Grennan - Lighting Matches

I find the same issues with this album as I did Bad Sounds, albeit Tom Grennan has a fantastic voice which really makes his music that little bit more unique for me. I do find there's little to no variation between the songs but I can't help but just really enjoy this album.
38. Confidence Man - Confident Music for Confident People

One of the dance records of the year. Whilst it …

Live Review: Bernhoft & The Fashion Bruises at O2 Academy, Birmingham

Bernhoft is a grammy nominated R&B artist, someone who came to my attention this year and blew me away with his album Humanoid, an album that almost edged on the side of pop, taking a large step forward and slightly away from a very traditional R&B setting. So when he stopped by Birmingham on his short rendezvous through Blighty.

First up were Lawrence, a 7 (I think) piece jazz-pop band that I only caught towards the en of their set but what I saw made me wish I'd seen it all, a fantastic rendition of Sean Paul lit the room up incredibly, immediately having me hooked in their set. The songs that followed were each as joyful as the next and contained some of the best contemporary jazz infused music I've heard in ages!

Bernhoft swaggered onto the stage with the Fashion Bruises in tow and blew the roof off the O2 Academy as he ran through a set that began with the title track of his latest record, dancing and performing to songs he loved just as much as the crowd screami…

Introducing... The Shakers

The Shakers make the perfect indie pop, their tunes emit a feeling of joy that is barely matched in the music world. Their tunes can be related to those of bands such as The Orielles or with the production of Jungle. The London-based 5-piece have been growing and growing at such a pace that it wouldn't be ridiculous to see them doing arena tours within the next few years! I had the chance to catch up with the band to chat about their incessantly catchy new single "Get Me Down" which will definitely get your toe tapping faster with every listen. Read the full interview below:

Question. Hey guys, How has it been releasing your new single, "Get Me Down", into the world?
The Shakers: It has been amazing. This one has been a pretty long time in the making so not only is it really exciting to see people’s reactions to the song it has been a huge build up for us personally so it is awesome to see it out there and start getting some nice reactions.

Q. Post-release is the…
