Killing Moon Live Vid Holding Image demolition day


Did you miss us? Like a rolling stone, Demolition Day is back with our weekly pick of new, under the radar cuts… and like The Rolling Stones, we’re gonna keep pedalling this fucker ’til our hands are red raw. Follow our (newly updated) Spotify playlist to affirm your devotion.

Our special guest this week was Georgia Hardy, drummer with mystery proto-glam quartet Reptunes and live booker for The Lock Tavern/Shacklewell Arms/Moth Club/Waiting Room. Watch the transmission back to hear our thoughts in real-time. Yeah, transmission. Streaming is so 2017.

Uncle Luc – Plateaux

We kicked off with this colourful slice of 70s-inspired songwriting, a sound that warmed our hearts and conjured flashbacks to Top Of The Pops 2 (in a good way). ‘Plateaux’ comes from Uncle Luc’s upcoming album, due this Spring.

Holy – Wish ㍛

Stockholm musician Holy aka Hannes Ferm is poised to release album #2 this Friday 26th January. ‘Wish ㍛’ is the third track we’ve heard from it, and needless to say we’re excited to hear the rest of the record. Lo-fi drums and a bed of luscious Mellotron strings sit beneath dreamy vocals.

Lokki – I Catch You

‘I Catch You’ caught me with a stunning string arrangement that hits a couple of minutes in. Before that, the gentle purr of piano against a naked vocal. “Splintering and falling apart, reforming and fading” – this is a song to envelop sleepy minds. Save this one for later. Taken from upcoming EP, Cirrhi.

Zilinski – Telerulum

Cut from the group’s debut album, ‘Telerulum’ shifts through states of psych and lo-fi songwriter, linked by heavier passages. Whether a band naive in genre definition or masterful in sonic palette, we were fans.

Tonochrome – Not Gonna End Well

A cracking end to proceedings this week, despite what the track title would have us believe. Taken from the group’s upcoming album, ‘Not Gonna End Well’ shows off Tonochrome’s playful approach to songwriting, incorporating shifting bass and tightly composed guitar lines.

Tune in this Friday at 2pm for the next instalment of Demolition Day. And, if you’ve got something ripe we should hear, fire us an email at Ace.
