The Garden, Kill Surrrf, Killer Bangs at Broadcast, 7/11/15

Tonight Broadcast is treated to an act so unusual that they are almost otherworldly. The Garden take to the stage as a thrash metal two-piece, but morph continuously through out the set. The two longhaired blonde Californians wear matching slacks, for them whipping a crowd into frenzy is as easy as business admin. Suddenly a drum machine takes … Continue Reading ››

Hinds, Oscar, Kill Surrrf at Broadcast, 21/5/15

When Hinds (FKA Deers) first played Glasgow, they got Kill Surrrf to open with a depleted line-up of just vocal/guitar/drums and it sounded pretty amazing, so when a full band shows up this time round it should be even better, shouldn’t it? Well, it is definitely is. Absent this time is frontman Johnny Lynn’s slightly awkward awareness … Continue Reading ››

Kill Surrf – ‘I Can’t Sleep For Dreaming Of You’ [Fuzzkill]

Kill Surrrf definitely seems way more relaxed on this track than usual. The track has a really dreamy quality about it vocals spread themselves around creating a rich, hazy atmosphere. While this ‘I Can't Sleep For Dreaming Of You’ is definitely more out there (at least sonically speaking) than the band’s earlier work, nothing feels tacked on … Continue Reading ››

Live review: King Tuff, Halfrican, Kill Surrrf, It Girl at Broadcast, 12/5/13

1_MG_9953-2 Tonight is somewhat of a mouth-watering occasion, with three hot local bands with their own level of plaudits supporting the infectiously fun garage rock n’ roll of King Tuff. First up are the relatively ungooogleable It Girl, who are possibly the most commercially accessible act of the … Continue Reading ››

Live review: Tijuana Bibles (EP launch), Kill Surrrf, Pirate Sons at The Art School, 19/4/13

Gearing the crowd up is Pirate Sons, a three piece from Edinburgh, a band that sound like they know the feeling of proper rock. Their catchy lyrics and upbeat songs make it an easy listen for the gathering crowd, with ‘Vendetta’ seeming the most popular track, a song implying its either about love or revenge, with … Continue Reading ››
