The NHC MUSIC Staff Picks For 2018 - The Bands We Think Will Go Far This Year And Beyond

For me, this was even harder than picking my favourite bands of  2017, as there are so many talented musicians we work with at NHC that really do seem to be making some huge musical waves recently, but with the amount of great shows they have been doing, great gigs they have already done, and big news and future plans they have been dropping all over the place recently, there can only be two bands for me to choose for 2018. Like punk or hard rock? Then we have something for you!

Band two for me needs to be Savage Cut. Every song is different on their album, and there is absolutely no filler on there. A unique twist on the album is that different vocalists are used for each of the tracks that require one, the best of which, for me anyway, is Andy From Finance with the talented Leyla Josephine stepping into the singer/spoken word style role. Fucking hell, I think the copy of the album we have in the shop will be worn down to nothing soon; it really has had that much play from us.  Check out Savage Cut on this link here.

mmm would have to be a gig we played in General Santos, the crowd was further back than I could physically see, they were singing along and were just absolutely psyched to be seeing us play! It was extremely gratifying to get that reaction across international water! Another highlight would be when we had a few days off and headed to a resort with a swimming pool, we spent hours swimming in the beautiful evening weather and having a great time. That’s a memory I’ll always cherish!

Most of our songs have came from jamming in the studio together; generally when we’re jamming we play pretty much in complete darkness, and we always have practices or jams late at night, it just helps us be creative and we all work better and are more creative late at night like that; It’s just a much more relaxed and laid-back environment. And just from there it just kind of works. But to be honest we don’t normally think about it as writing: which definitely helps - haha!
