Featured Review – NÖME
With rushing synths and pounding beats, NÖME has all the makings of a genuine stadium rock outfit and it doesn’t seem entirely out of their reach.” - We Close Tonight.

NÖME released the single 'Nineties Child' in June 2014. It was recorded at Assault and Battery Studios. The debut EP ‘She Won’t Wait’ was recorded during 2013 in Las Vegas with producer Eric Rickey and is available on CD, iTunes and Spotify.

"Epic songs of lost love and lost youth with a catchy chorus, NÖME have found the elusive formula for incredibly emotive songs"- Jed Shepherd

Featured Review  - Shakedown Stockholm
Shakedown Stockholm is having a steady and successful climb to the summit of the music charts. Unearthed but Jar Music in 2013 the band performed a sold out gig at the O2 Academy Liverpool who they month previously hosted Paul McCartney. Picked up be the BBC Radio the band ended the year featuring on MTV Artist.

A six piece, dual, female fronted rock band with not one but two sets of twins! The multi - layers of lead vocals are beautifully instinctive, melodic and delivered in complete and natural unison. Their blends push and lead the abrasive rhythm of their memorable tracks delivered with relentless energy by their talented band.

This is one of the years’ anticipated gigs by our music department, who have followed these bands throughout 2013/14.

Featured Review - Fight The Dice
Fight The Dice have been a band that has been on Jar Music’s Radar for the last 2 years. The bad has played for us on a promotional tour that saw then play at the O2 Academy Birmingham, Islington, Bristol and Liverpool. They return armed with new songs developed under the guidance of our music departments. Here is what the press had to say..

"Fight The Dice are not a boy band who happen to play guitars. This is gutsy in your face guitar music."

"A melodic pop-rock song brimming with confidence and catchy guitar riffs. ...Quite refreshing in a day when many bands are being so over-produced."

"Fight the Dice have it going on - 5 lads who can play tremendously, interact well on stage together and I imagine attract the hearts of every school girl - it's a formula that can't fail - excellent work!"
-Roger Greasby - (Barn Studios)
