** Longsight – the band **

Pete Morgan
Sam Bickley


Longsight are a new indie guitar band from North West England. Started in August 2019 their first few gigs have caught the imagination of their peers and music journalists alike.

Si Wolstencroft (The Fall/ Ian Brown’s band) “Absolutely love Longsight. They sound like a cross between The Buzzcocks and New Order”.

The Big issue: “Beg, borrow or steal the entrance fee. Longsight are about to go stellar”.

Cassie Delta KBYD radio California: The songs have a hurting, haunting, heart-breaking echo to them.

Manchester Evening News, “No wonder current music sounds banal, Longsight have taken all the best songs”.

Chester Chronicle: “Top new band. Every track sounds like a hit single. Although the guitarist looks like a trucker who murders prostitutes”.

Glasgow Herald. “Beautifully crafted songs delivered in an unnerving style”.

Longsight’s first single ‘These Chains’ is out now on limited edition 7″ vinyl. Produced by Jez Kerr from A Certain Ratio. First album is due out early next year on Welsh indie label Higuera Records.

Grave Lines / Dystopian Future Movies / The Death Of Money

The Beauty Witch presents:

Grave Lines
A must see for fans of all things heavy, anybody seeking music that delves into the darker and more introspective aspects of the human condition will find much to love within their crushing gloom.
At times quiet and melancholy, at times an oppressive and miserable onslaught of crushing riffs and filth-laden grooves. Fans of Yob to Neurosis, even Bauhaus or Dead Can Dance, take heed – Grave Lines reaches out to scratch at your soul.

“Now into its second album, Grave Lines demonstrates irrefutable growth, confidence and deftness with a palette of emotional peaks and valleys.” – The Sludgelord

Dystopian Future Movies
DFM craft a heady combination of discordant layers, atmospheric swells and colossal heaviness. While weaving lyrical catharsis with hypnotic vocal melodies – delicate dynamic interludes give way to massive doomscapes. Emotional, powerful and raw.
DFM will release their second album on 2nd March 2020.

‘Their allure is not in the volume or force, but the threat, as if they’ve got a lot in reserve, simmering beneath the surface. And with grace and dynamic range, they’re a uniquely exciting act.’ – Aural Aggravation

‘DFM’s drone-like sludge is juxtaposed with finesse against beautifully gentle arpeggios. Overlaid with ethereal vocals and underpinned by menacing, driving basslines, DFM deliver what appears to be an effortlessly captivating performance.’
Echoes And Dust

support / The Death Of Money
TDOM’s spacious yet driving rhythms off-set a sound that flows into darkness via unsettling discordant melody. Off-kilter chord progressions accompany intense screamed vocals and gentler keenings with layers of feedback. A formidable concoction.
