Now we’re done with festivals in the sun and dancing under blue skies, it’s time for the comedown. However it’s not all doom and gloom, the music world never stops going and while we might not be camping out in fields any time soon, there’s plenty of acts to see in venues nearby.

VH Artist of the Week (22/8/16): Bel Esprit

Here’s a piece I wrote for Vulture Hound a little while back. Find it on the site here: http://vulturehound.co.uk/2016/08/artist-of-the-week-220816-bel-esprit/

Heart In Hand – A Beautiful White

With the recent release of A Beautiful White, and their outstanding title track, British quintet Heart In Hand are hitting up the road this month with Australia’s The Amity Affliction. ‘A Beautiful White’ is certainly a step up from all past material, this is shown instantly right from the very start of the guitar intro, which is soon joined by a bashful beat.

Packing a deep bass line behind a fuzzy rock tone, bass playing vocalist Matt Marcantonio claims that lyrically there is an influence from his “bitter disdain for humanity’s engineered ignorance” – so nothing too lighthearted then.
