The Utopiates

The North London outfit were formed during lockdown. That alone is a message of hope that only an old person planting a tree for future generations can top. They consist of Dan Popplewell (vocals/guitar), Ed Godshaw (keys), Josh Redding (lead guitar), Luke Nottingham (bass), and Joe Jeffreys (drums)

For now, we focus on their last single ‘Only Human’
Usually, we would take a look at a few songs to highlight what a band’s humble beginnings are striving for. The Utopiates, however, are a different animal. Their single ‘Only Human’ is a moment to saviour.
It’s the stop everything moment! ‘Only Human’ has that power! It’s reminded the world what rock ‘n’ roll can be. EVERYTHING! Guitar music needed this song. Not since Fat White Family has it really done anything new. Somehow, they have Depeche Mode’s darkness and Marr’s expressiveness firing alongside soul music vocals and razor-sharp lyrics.
They’ve taken the good work of Big Image (formerly Ivory Wave) to another universe. The funk and grooves of New Fast Automatic Daffodils’ classic ‘Big’ is injected with the hope of Electronic to conjure new realms for rocks explosiveness to traverse.
That is to say nothing of the guitar solo itself. It’s Prince via The Mondays. It’s mesmerising, it’s destructive, its escapist, it’s nihilistic. It’s a world power launching the nukes. It’s incredulous!
The Utopiates have landed and, bow down to their invasion!” - Traveller’s Tunes
“Taking form in Manchester/Stockport just before the pandemic, Republic have developed their intricate musical DNA around the songwriting talent, mint vocals and interlocking guitar play of Bec O'Malley and Mikey Hogan. Then brought together with the laid-back style yet complex, drum beats and crafted melodic basslines from Theo Moon and Danny Roberts. The four piece, all 19 years old, take cues from seminal influences such as The Stone Roses and The La's, however display their own original sound, which listeners say they haven't heard similarities to since the golden era of music, the 60s-90s. The band have a collosal inventory of songs they are sitting on, each and every one giving listeners the impression that they will see this band being the new faces of British music.” Spotify
Lee Ford
“Tipped by This Feeling as one of their picks for Big in 2022, Lee Ford releases his first single of the year, following on from 'My Best Freind and 'Where It Begins' comes the latest single 'Push Bikes'.
A track bursting with an infectious riff and a hook that's not easy to shake off, Lee Ford is ready to return with a bang.
The Liverpool artist, backed with a full band has a catalogue of tunes with raw relatable lyrics and loud guitars ready to be released into the world of new music and make an impact, this is just the beginning of things to come.” Spotify
