A few years ago we headed along to see our friends in Defences play a gig at The Crowndale Club in Camden. The headline act that evening saw the six members of As Everything Unfolds pile onto the tiny stage and blow our minds, led by what we described as “the incredible vocals of Charlie Rolfe.”
We promised you more bands from the Emerald Isle and, almost immediately, here’s another in brand new rock duo Future Lows. The band describe their engaging, anthemic sound as a “step forwards” for Irish rock music due to its modern approach.

New York City rockers VRSTY are on a mission to prove wrong the theory that everything has done before. The band offer up an unusual fusion of R&B and even pop-inspired vocals with heavier metal growls alongside huge guitar riffs, metallic grooves and elements of post-hardcore.

If, like us, you never grew out of your emo phase then you’re very much in luck with exciting Yorkshire band Realms.

Long Island, NY rockers Karma Versa fuse a multitude of musical backgrounds and influences – including beginning life as an R’n’B band, which we’ll just about forgive them for – in their post-hardcore meets alternative rock sound.
St. Louis five-piece This Is Falling have honed an intriguing sound that tows the line between metal and post-hardcore with elements of industrial, electronic sounds and 80s influences. And they’re definitely the first band to reference Top Gun as a musical influence to us.
