The Covasettes, arguably one of the country’s finest unsigned indie-pop talents, are back with their latest single, Watching All The Good Ones Go, out Friday 11th June.
A shimmering summer banger, and channeling their love of all things Coldplay, Watching All The Good Ones Go, boasts sing-along melodies, explosive choruses and floor-filling rhythms that will no doubt be fan favourites for a long time to come.
As we start looking forward to things resuming to some sort of normality this year, a lot of musicians are naturally looking forward to getting back on the road and rebuild the connection they once had so frequently, with their fans. I am happy to share my second interview of 2021, with Scottish band, Wrest who are about to release their single Second Wind. Read on to learn all about the band!
Please share with us your journey into music and how Wrest came together as a band.

“One of Scotland’s most exciting emerging live acts” BBC Radio Rapal

Hotly-tipped Edinburgh indie rock band wrest return with Second Wind, their first studio single since debut album Coward of Us All in 2019 (‘Best Scottish Album 2019’, ‘BBC Radio Rapal Album of the Week’).
Pop singer-songwriter Bradley Jago will release his chilled-out new single Rain on Friday 28th May via Roots Below Inc.
Rain follows Jago’s previous singles Moonstruck and Shut Your Mouth, and sees him adopt a decidedly more laid back approach which draws heavily on the sultry R&B of the likes of Jorja Smith and Lauryn Hill. As well as this, the track takes influence from the off-kilter pop of Billie Eilish and a funkier edge inspired by UK virtuoso Jacob Collier for a sound that Jago well and truly makes his own.
Western Canada-based indie folk collective Bent Roads Tavern have today released Let’s Go To Newfoundland as the first track from their forthcoming album Clear Nights. Brite Lites.
“Our goal is simply to celebrate Canada: the land, the culture and the musicians who have inspired us.” That is how Collen Middleton (guitarist and vocalist) describes Bent Roads Tavern and their new album Clear Nights. Brite Lites. That goal is best illustrated by Let’s Go To Newfoundland,” the first track to be released from the forthcoming album.
“It was the first song that I brought to the band,” recalls Middleton. “I was a big fan of Great Big Sea, Newfoundland’s native sons, so this was sort of a shoutout to that corner of my musical tastes. When I was growing up, my dad always talked about going on a family holiday to Newfoundland, which we never did. The dream of that trip never died in me and eventually turned into a song. I still hope to make it there one day.”
