This year’s Bluedot Festival promises to be something special, providing not just exceptional acts such as the Chemical brothers and Gary Newman, but also days and nights full of learning and exploration with a science theme. An eco-conscious, creative festival in the unique setting of Jodrell bank, (itself an impressively interesting structure), Bluedot really […]

Gig Preview: Rhye

Gig Preview: Rhye at the O2 Ritz   Currently touring what is only their second album, Blood, despite having put out music as early as 2013,  Rhye are due to grace Manchester with their ethereal, other-worldly sound on Wednesday 6th June. The group, led by Milosh, are known for their trademark vocals and multi-instrumentalism; the perfect […]

Ever wondered what makes Tom Grennan tick? Wonder no more! Ellis Harbord sat down with the Bedford-born singer songwriter to find out more…   Fuse: How’s the tour going? Is the first time with a band? Tom: Yeah it’s going pretty well man, no I’ve done it with a band before.   Fuse: last time […]

Originally a duo, the act is now centred around Michael Milosh, who tonight was supported by a 6-piece band. The first audience interaction came after the first two songs, when […]

True to form, their live show follows the same ambition, sound, and audacity seen in their debut album. Upon arrival at Gorilla, I was greeted by a real mix bag of […]
