Growing Up

    Growing Up is the debut physical release by Newcastle quartet Club Paradise, released on Kids Records (The Wombats, The Whip, Band of Horses, I Like Trains) featuring four epic guitar-pop tracks each, in the words of CMU: "featuring a chorus that will fill every corner of any room you'd care to put it in".

    The band have built a fierce local following and have already shared the stage with the likes of Vistas, Apre, Larkins, Kashmere, Vant, Saint Raymond, The Navettes and Only The Poets, as well as picking up early attention from the likes of Clash Magazine, Shortlist and a legion of blogs. Made up of school friends Ryan Young (vocals/guitar), Jackson Vert (lead guitar), Harry Webb (bass) and Nathan Hogg (drums), the band cite the likes of Foals, The Midnight, Jungle and The Horrors as influences, writing tracks reminiscent of an 80s Sunset Boulevard movie montage.

    New Education

    Today

    Brothers Ryan Dooley (vocals, guitar) and Jack Dooley (bass, backing vocals) formed New Education in January 2008 in their native Stoke-on-Trent, along with long-time friends David Carter (guitar) and John Bradbury (drums). Influenced by bands like Oasis, The Cure and The Clash, Ryan writes gritty, assured rock sounds which the band describe as the sound of 'the Midlands calling'.

    Neil McSweeney

    Postcards

    McSweeney started writing his Americana-tinged, folksy solo material while teaching English in Italy, following the break-up of his first band, Faded. Upon returning to his native Sheffield, he continued to write songs inspired by the likes of Low and Papa M, and was invited to record some tracks by a local studio. McSweeney became a fixture on the local live circuit, with his intense, brooding live performances. Following a self-released album last year, he now releases his debut single on Kids. "Postcards", one of the stand-out tracks on the album, showcases McSweeney's extraordinarily powerful voice. His deep vocals resonate over a maudlin yet uplifting backdrop with an emotional depth that recalls the quiet menace of The Bad Seeds. Reference points also include Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen, Will Oldham, King Creosote maybe even Richard Hawley, and strangely Tracey Chapman! A stunning single.
