False Advertising Release New EP

Manchester-based band False Advertising are back, after releasing their new EP, ‘I Would Be so Much Happier If I Just Stopped Caring’ at the end of October.

The EP featured tracks that GreatWave had the pleasure of seeing live earlier this year, such as ‘Hey You’ and ‘It’s Been a While’, as well as singles ‘Not My Fault’ and ‘Honest’. The 5-track, studio-recorded EP is slightly heavier, with more grunge than indie sounds; not without losing their catchy noise-pop edge, though.

With powerful vocals, big distortion, tight drumrolls and heavy bass – the EP is definitely a head-banger anthem. But don’t let the cleaner sound fool you, it’s still a DIY EP to its core.

The EP has been released as a limited edition cassette, and a digital album available on bandcamp, or free to listen to on spotify.

Great Wave Mag talks to young, upcoming grime artist Yizzy, at the O2 Academy in Islington.

 

The crowd wasn’t what we expected for a grime set, as he was opening for teen American singer Billie Eilish. But after seeing Yizzy’s set with BBC Introducing at the O2 Academy Brixton (as the only grime artist there too), we were right in expecting the crowd to be hyped when he came on.

Having only started making music in 2016, it’s an understatement to say Yizzy is doing pretty well for himself. From getting attention with his track ‘Grime Kid’ last December, and releasing his debut EP ‘This Is Life’ in April this year, then his big set at the O2 Academy Brixton in front of thousands, an advert with Nike this month, and now with a new EP coming soon, the grime artist has come up fast.

At the O2 Academy Islington, Great Wave Mag were invited backstage before the show, so we spoke to the 17-year-old grime artist from Lewisham about his experience with BBC Introducing, Red Bull’s Grime-a-side, and what’s next for Yizzy.
