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.

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 […]
