We Were Glue

Genre: indie pop/rock,

Bio: Liverpool’s We Were Glue have released their new single ‘Stuck in Love’. The track was recorded with Mark Morrow (Vistas, Mt Doubt) and represents the first offering in 2018, the follow-up to last year’s singles ‘Birthday’ and ‘My Girl’.

Track: ‘Stuck in Love’

Why We Like It: It’s a tasty nibble of infectious indie. Sharp zesty guitars spiral around a dynamic vocal while punchy drums add a buoyant spring to this vibrant number. Luscious melodies playfully melt upon the busy instrumentation as We Were Glue perfectly blend biting razor sharp indie rock with delicious sun kissed indie pop.

Genre: Indie pop

Bio: Bath family of five, Voyages have released their new single ‘New Year’s Day’. Voyages is the creation of singer/songwriter, Will Walter whose work began in Spring 2017 in his home studio in the West Country. Enriched by psychedelic sounds, Walter’s journey started to create a modern alternative production and a new sound from everything he loved about his record collection before adding a band of brothers together for the ride. The band, who now perform and record as a 5-piece, are twins, Will and Tim Walter on vocals/keys, their brother Ollie Walter on guitar, alongside another set of twins in James and Lewis Woods who take care of the rhythm section on bass and drums.Their debut EP entitled New Year’s Day has been recently released on newly pressed limited edition vinyl.

Track: Godspeed

Why We Like It: It’s a twinkling retro 60’s flavoured track doused in trippy blissed out psychedelia. A dreamy vocal glides upon the sweet melody while swirling synths and tapping rhythm create the perfect mellowed out state of euphoria. The track builds into a crescendo with 16 layers of vocal harmony over a 3 round vocal pass forming a lush rich texture to wrap your ears around.

Philip Morgan Lewis

Genre: alternative, blues,

Bio: UK based blues rocker Philip Morgan Lewis has released a music video for his single ‘Sinner’ taken from his ‘Grief Harbour’ album which is released via Moonalizer Records. The London East End singer, songwriter, producer Philip Morgan Lewis combines alternative, blues, rock and folk influences. Philip writes and produces his songs playing most of the instruments. A nominee at the British Blues Awards, Philip features as producer alongside Gordon Raphael (The Strokes) on Elêphant’s album (RYP recordings).

Track: ‘Sinner’

Why We Like It: With a stomping rhythm forming the back bone of this darkly hued track ‘Sinner’ instantly grabs the listener by the ears, slithers and hustles its way into your brain. Infectiously catchy with steamy wailing guitars and smokey raspy vocals smothered on top of a sultry bluesy outfit it’s a cool swagger soaked rough and ready number. With a sing along friendly chorus backed by gospel like soul, this track makes for some hefty listening.

A Chat With : We Were Glue

We caught up with We Were Glue ahead of the release of their new single ‘Birthday’ which will be released on May 12th to get to know them a little better and to discuss all things music in their world.

Tell us a bit about yourselves?
Hi there we are We Were Glue. We are four guys who study music and thought it would be fun to start a band. Our members range from purveyors of discount baked goods to adventurers in the realms of rave.

How did you all meet?
We all met in the first few weeks of uni just in classes and that, nothing awfully exciting. If you’d like we have an alternate narrative involving dragons, yahtzee and more custard than I care to mention.

How did you decide on the name We Were Glue?
Well we used to be called Glue, but then we needed a new name because we started getting angry messages from other bands called glue, saying that they’ve played Manchester Academy 3 so have bagsies. So yeah when we needed a new name we didn’t wanna change much from Glue, so we went with We Were Glue.

You released your debut single ‘My Girl’ last year how was that for you finally having something out there for everyone to hear?
It is really nice, it’s good being able to just direct people to spotify when they ask if our music is online. It’s even nicer when someone just tells you about how they enjoyed it and that kinda thing.

What was it like recording your own song for the first time?
Hard work, especially as for some in the band it was their first experience properly recording Its a process we’re starting to enjoy a lot more now and we’ve been happy will all results so far! We can’t wait to get the new track out there.
You are releasing your new single ‘Birthday’ in May tell us a bit about that track  and how it came about?
Most of our songs come about pretty slowly after a culmination of whatever over the months, then we get hyped about it and release and play shows and all that. On this occasion, there was a mis-remembering of a birthday and low level disruptions occurred.
You guys have a quirky jagged indie sound with catchy energetic riffs and peppy bounce how do you come up with your sound and what is your music writing process?

Its mainly just a conglomeration of everything we all separately like about indie and guitar music in general, sort of distilled down and mashed into a big soup. We then dip our big songwriting ladle in there and see what juicy surprises we can find.

What’s a live show with you guys like?

It probably the nicest way you could ever be physically assaulted by music. We just have a blast on stage and try to involve the crowd as much as we can

What do you guys do in your spare time when you are not making music?

Our lives vary wildly from day to day. For instance, a few days ago, we stayed up until 2am playing Rocket League, whereas the day before we stayed up until 4am playing Rocket League.
Other than that it’s basically just a constant battle to stop ourselves from going to Uncle Sam’s every day of our lives.

Do you have any live shows coming up?

Our next main show is the 12th May at Studio 2 which is our super special single release show which along with us, has a whole host of talented bands on the bill including Quit Now, COLOUR, and the phenomenal Black Pulp. We will also be selling tshirts.

What does the rest of the year have in store for We Were Glue?

Basically more bounciness, more good vibes and definitely more new music.
