Live4ever’s New Tunes Guide: Elevant, Formation and more

Posted on 07 Feb 2015 at 6:15am

The New Tunes Guide has highlights this week from Liverpool based Elevant and South London’s Formation.

Elevant have announced ‘Open Heart Surgery’ as the the first single to be taken from their forthcoming ‘Dreamface’ album ahead of its release on March 13th. “We picked it because it’s short and sweet, and encompasses a lot of our different aspects of our sound,” the band have said. “It’s a first person account of my grandmother getting a triple heart bypass in her 80s, and the inherent worries about death that come with it.”

Formation have set their debut EP ‘Young Ones’ for release on March 23rd via Meno Records. The twin brothers arrived with a physical only white label release last summer, and play European dates including a stop off at Great Escape in Brighton during the coming months.

New Zealand natives Two Cartoons and Portland’s Divers provide the highlights for this week’s New Tunes Guide.

Two Cartoons hail from Dunedin, New Zealand but now reside in London. The duo of Bradley Craig and Isaac McFarlane are releasing the ‘Lost Boys Club’ EP in March, from which our highlight ‘Horizon Approaching’ is the first to be heard.

Divers are readying their debut album ‘Hello Hello’ for release on February 17th via Party Damage and Rumbletowne Records. “We play dynamic, sweaty music. The indie rockers say we are a punk band,” the band say. “The punk rockers are suspicious that we might be an indie band. The bands that have inspired us fall on both sides of the fence, but they all share the same kind of energy.”

Live4ever's Essential Listening 2014: The Tracks

Live4ever’s Essential Listening 2014: The Tracks

Posted on 15 Dec 2014 at 5:31am

Another year, another twelve months when hundreds of bands have been showcased on Live4ever via reviews, New Tunes Guides, interviews and Presents features.

Here, our editor Dave Smith has picked out 20 of the best for you to revisit or perhaps discover for the first time, be it the ‘naive enthusiasm’ of Wild Smiles, the ‘raucous, foot-to-the-floor, blink-and-you’ll-miss singles’ of Slaves, or the ‘sense of joy, of wonderment’ that underpins Trampolene‘s ‘I Don’t Know‘. Tomorrow, Trampolene will be talking us through ‘I Don’t Know’s origins and their plans for 2015.

Don’t forget, you can catch up with our Essential Listening 2014 series so far at this link. The final installment, The Albums, is coming next week.
