The Jackobins, One More Chance - Single Review

The Jackobins, One More Chance

The Jackobins start 2016 with their new single, One More Chance and once again don’t fail to deliver the goods. This single has already been played several times on BBC RADIO 6 on numerous occasions and on listening to it you can see why.

Building from a single drum beat onto a mesmerising guitar riff that made me instinctively think of The Mission. This anthem single is what you come to expect from The Jackobins as Dominic Bassnetts’ glorious vocals kick in.  Though the songs lyrics them self speak of  quite low point in the protagonists life the song itself is uplifting. Telling the listeners that there is hope at the end of the tunnel of any situation.

Crescendoing into a chanting of  the words “One more chance”, this is what this single is telling you...

Steve Thompson and the Incidents - Monster Single Review

Steve Thompson and the Incidents

Indie pop rock trio from Merseyside , Steve Thompson and the Incidents recently signed to c-side music publishing , debut album “Rainbows & Arrows

We recently reviewed the album Rainbows & Arrows and due out on the 9th of October is their new single “Monster

The Jackobins Waiting On The Sun

The Jackobins have relaeased their new single, ‘Waiting on the Sun’.

With a catchy start, the song quickly builds up into a more robust sound and when Dominic Bassnett’s wonderful vocals kick in it gains even more texture to complete a very well produced single albeit it far too short for my liking (another 2 minutes of this great tune would have done me fine)

Waiting on the Sun features, as is to be expected, great vocals and great musical accompaniment and it goes to show how far The Jackobins have come in a very short space of time. The track is smooth and slick and thoroughly enjoyable and as I have continuously commented on, Dominic Bassnett’s vocals are glorious and full once again.

The single has got support from The View, Hurts, Twisted Whee...
