2 1975LP3.png The 1975 A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships We've now run out of fully-signed CDs, but we have a few albums which are signed but smudged, or partially signed. The choices that remain are: 1) smudged, but signed by all 4 members of the band 2) signed by Matty (which is not smudged) but not signed by all 4 members. "The word 'eclectic' is bandied around a lot, but this album really is a mix of styles, all of them undoubtedly The 1975. A social commentary on life in 2018, poetry, love and anger, infectious songs, the extra mile with the art, two great Kingston shows, an incredibly dedicated fanbase and the band, label and management doing everything they can to accommodate. Even having been surrounded by it for weeks, I still put it on at home. Our biggest selling album of all time." - jt The huge third full length from the iconic The 1975. It's an eclectic mix of indie-rock, pop, social commentary, and electronica, and they're being named the band of a generation. Clever and profound, funny and light, serious and heartbreaking, painfully modern and classic-sounding all at the same time, ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ is a game-changing album, one that challenges The 1975’s peers – if, indeed, there are any – to raise their game. The 1975 take on that overwhelming anxiety with nerve and aplomb, and the result combines the fist-raising inspired by anthems with the gut-punch provided by precisely described longing.

As far as everyone was concerned it was finished, with singles just left to be decided on. They knew they had a strong collection of bangers and ballads that told the story of a band re-born, but they weren't entirely certain about which song should properly mark the start of The Vamps Part 2. That's when Zoom really came into its own. “On the day we handed the album in I went on a Zoom call with Lostboy” explains Brad. “We had a few beers and then four hours later Married in Vegas was birthed.” James adds: “I was playing Playstation with my mates and it was about 11pm and I was pretty drunk too actually. Then Brad FaceTimed me and he was like 'I've just written this song!'. I love moments like that because even when you think something's done it can still change at the last minute." Suddenly the race to be Cherry Blossom's lead single was won by a brand new song, a clear sign that their creative juices were in full flow. The Vamps, aka Brad Simpson, Connor Ball, Tristan Evans and James McVey, had never really had the chance to be bored before 2020 struck. Since their platinum-selling debut album, Meet The Vamps, crashed into the UK charts at number 2 in 2014, the band have been holding onto a dream-like rush of albums (four in total, including 2017's chart-topping Night & Day (Night Edition), featuring the Matoma-assisted global smash All Night), singles (eight top 40 hits including five top 10s), and world tours (they're the first band to headline London's O2 Arena five years in a row). Having been on the treadmill of album, tour, album-recorded-on-tour, another tour, they fell back into the old routine and wrote half an album quickly 18 months ago. Some proper time off was needed however, so they indulged in that rare thing of space away from the band. Then, last summer, unhappy with the results of those early sessions, they booked some AirBnbs and just hung out and started jamming as the band. “We ended scrapping all of the first batch of songs and starting again,” McVey says. This time gave the band the space to meticulously plan exactly what they wanted the album to be and what they wanted to say. 'Cherry Blossom' was born, a title that is a reflection of the theme of rebirth that runs throughout. In the space of just six years The Vamps have morphed from bright-eyed and bushy-tailed boyband with instruments into a proper fully-fledged pop band crafting arena-sized Hits. On Cherry Blossom, that musicality that's occasionally been lost in frantic release schedules and world tours and award shows has been given the time to properly, well, blossom. This isn't a vehicle for pop's current crop of in demand songwriters and producers, this is a Vamps-lead project that's made all the more impressive by the fact it was honed and finessed during lockdown. “We'd be lying if we said we didn't want it to go out into the world and be received positively,” says Simpson of their hopes for the album. “But ultimately we love it so much, and that feeling of self-fulfilment is so exciting. These are songs that really touch on parts of our lives.” He smiles. “The songs mean that little bit more.”   CD | LP Out of Stock
9 NSR127.png Moose Blood I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time In years to come they'll write books about Moose Blood. This is the album which is to spearhead a new kind of British emo-rock. After some real good EPs, we'd been waiting for this coming of age album. You should know all about them by now, but if not, listen below, and fall in love. “I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time is everything that we've been working towards since the start of the band in 2012,” says drummer Glenn Harvey. “I think there is a much more personal and honest feel to this record than on anything else we've done up to this point. Seeing these songs turn from ideas at our practice space to a finished 11 track album has been an incredible experience. We're all really proud of this record and we can't wait for everybody to finally hear it.” Moose Blood aren’t afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. Produced by Saosin guitarist Beau Burchell, I’ll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time is replete with heartfelt, yearning lyrics about life and love that exude vulnerability with a comforting warmth. The record moves through waves of emotion from the pensive opening balad “Cherry” to the follow-up upbeat tempo of “Anyway,” sailing through the mounting crescendos of “I Hope You’re Missing Me” to the memorable, driving rhythm of “Swim Down.” With each chorus and riff, I’ll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time draws listeners in with its unrelenting honesty and intense passion. 2014 will undoubtedly be the year Moose Blood makes their everlasting mark on the alternative rock scene.
