Meggie Brown

10 / 6

    Speaking on ’10 Out of 6’, which was produced by Alex Kapranos at Edwyn Collins’ studio in the Scottish Highlands, with the pair both providing backing vocals on the track, Meggie offers:

    "Mental health and all the chaos that we all quietly deal with day to day yet find hard to open up about despite all being in the same boat. You find yourself moving to a surreal place behind the eyes, you can see travel in others eyes passing through places of nostalgia and torment. Amendment of friendship within yourself. Encouragement to let go of mistakes, to keep moving and cross your own private bridge before your pushed off it. Until you do, it's 10/6." 

    Birthed from hours spent in a windowless North London rehearsal room, doubling as a shared bedroom, with pedals cluttering the floor and lyrics on brown paper covering the walls, ’10 out of 6’ follows Meggie’s debut single ‘Coming Back Again’ which was released earlier in the year.

    The single follows a run of bullish, intense live shows in support of Franz Ferdinand and Bodega – which, coupled with her own busy basement headline shows are cementing Meggie Brown as one of the capital’s most exciting newcomers.


    Whenyoung

    Actor

      With their successful history of releasing punk pop bangers, it seems fitting that Hate Hate Hate have returned from their hiatus to release Actor. Complete with jagged, infectious guitar paired and lyrics that will break your heart, the track encapsulates youthful abandon at its raw best. Produced by Chris Hayden (Florence & The Machine).

      Whenyoung are Aoife Power (Vocals/ Bass), Niall Burns (Guitar), Andrew Flood (Drums). Their story started in Limerick ... three underage teenagers met for the first time after sneaking into Costello’s Tavern: the only bar in town that floated their musical tastes. After bonding over cheap vodka and the sound of The Velvet Underground, they began playing music together and moved to Dublin to seek some big city excitement. Developing their sound, still with a DIY approach, the band moved to London and last year became Whenyoung.

      On stage, Whenyoung perform a dizzying rock show where Aoife’s dreamy, heart-in-the-mouth vocals fizzle between swigs of Guinness and infectious guitar riffs. Their manager Mairead says: “When I see this band live it ignites that thing inside that makes me fall in love and wanna wrestle my way to the front of the gig”, and the band have also been championed by Felix White (The Maccabees). Aoife mesmerises on stage, and critics have compared her to “Suzi Quatro in her heyday, bashing out throbbing bass lines”.

      The band’s passions pulse through the veins of Whenyoung and their influences could almost be picked from a collage page in a retro zine; charity shops and DIY fashion, the style of Marlon Brando, Richard Hell and Georgia O’Keefe, films by Jim Jarmusch, Jean Luc Godard, and Eric Rohmer, books by Hemingway, Paul Auster and Patti Smith, as well as musical heroes like Brian Eno, The Smiths and The Cure. The band start their live show to a hypnotic recording of Patti Smith chanting "WHEN YOUNG", taken from the documentary Dream of Life.
