By the time Tripwires hit The Shacklewell Arms they'll have a Bad Vibrations hat-trick ball under their collective arm. You know we don't just have any old band back again and again...
"...name Neil Young, Yo La Tengo, and Talk Talk as influences. Listening to Spacehopper, the debut album from the quartet out of Reading, England, those are not necessarily the first names that come to mind. The album was recorded in Brooklyn but couldn’t sound farther from it. Tripwires are a shoegaze band whose sound has also been filtered through the more arty strains of 1990s indie rock and Britpop.
They are good at it, too. Though they were still in primary school when their forebears first roamed the earth, Tripwires are a good fix for those who still get a rush out of the electrically-charged space travel rock’n'roll of Swervedriver, Catherine Wheel, and the like." - Pop Matters
“London's Whistlejacket are a bit of an unknown quantity at this moment in time. We suspect that anonymity won't last for long if their recent batch of Slowdive influenced demos are anything to go by.” - Drowned in Sound
★ Blonde Bunny
"It's like R&B prog that revolves around a Pink Floyd structure. When you watch them live it's a spectacle, not just a show and you get sucked into it." - Kristian Bell (The Wytches)
