21/01/13: Melrose and YaMaHaRaHaRa

It’s an exciting week for gigs.  To get you in the mood we have free music from pop punkers Melrose as well as the returning band YaMaHaRaHaRa!

Melrose are a pop punk four piece.  The band bring a refreshing heavy edge to pop punk and have a whole E.P for you to check out.  Our free download of the week is the E.P closer No Thanks Man, I’m High On Life.  Melrose start the track with a drum part and riff more infectious than the virus in 28 Days Later.  The band fuse the hooky and relate-able nature of pop punk with heavier riffs and vocals.  The end result is exciting and energetic pop punk/easycore.  Well produced, No Thanks Man, I’m High On Life even throws up a other moments that will do nice things to your inner jelly.

Get your copy of No Thanks Man, I’m High On Life here, alongside the whole Let Me Remind You E.P.  Yours for free or whatever you think it’s worth.  See the band this Thursday (24/01/13) here at The Beer Cart Arms, Canterbury.


Next up are the returning Folkestone heros YaMaHaRaHaRa.  Newly reformed, the band have their Ignite E.P available.  From it is the track Ribbons.  Coming at you from the first second with a big and building riff Ribbons is a driving and powerful beast of a track in the choruses.  In the verses however it is a much softer animal, showcasing vocals and lyrics as much as anything else.  Ribbons builds and builds, complete with some powerful guitar and vocal moments.  Passion, motivational lyrics and energy; what more do you need?!  One of three tracks on the Ignite E.P, check it out!

Get your free download of Ribbons here.  See information about the band’s come back show this Sataurday (26/01/13) here at The Bar Below, Fokestone.
