Bands to keep a watch out for in the future: #7: Newsum Turn

Newsum TurnHaving already had the accolade of supporting such a wide range of bands as Snow Patrol, Editors, The Upper Room, Tom Vek and BellX1, Newsum Turn are possibly one of the brightest young bands I’ve ever featured in “Bands to keep a watch out for in the future”. The foursome from the East Midlands manage to make a suprisingly mature sound that would put many more established bands to shame.

I first came across them last November when they supported Thirteen Senses at the Luminaire in Kilburn, and managed to pull of an amazing sound accoustically when I saw them, and on their demo they sounds pretty awesome too. They’ve garnered support from other bands, with Delays fans in particular giving support on their message board

Sounding like a bigger Thirteen Senses, they manage to make epic music perfect for wintery walks down the beach, or just simply a cold wintery evening longing for that special someone. Comparing them to Keane or Coldplay would do them an injustice as many bands are often compared to them spitefully these days, however there is definately a hint of JJ72 (remember them?) or early Coldplay to them.

“Broken” is a ready formed radio hit right there on their myspace page, with its rocky, yet vulnerable sound doubtlessly appealing to large sections of the music buying population.

Currently in the studio, the band have promised some gigs in coming weeks, as they finish off their new album. However judging by their existing demos they should definately be ones to watch in the future. You heard it here first!

 

Live: Thirteen Senses – Luminaire 13th November 2006

Monday night saw Thirteen Senses play the second of their three dates at The Luminaire in Kilburn, and were on top form ahead of their exciting 2007 plans.

Opening up were two fifths of Newsum Turn, who quite simply are ones to watch in 2007. Imagine a bigger Coldplay with more layers and a cheeky smile and you’ve got Newsum. If they’re not big in coming months, things aren’t right in this world. From their opening “Take a Bow” to their closer of “Home” they just blew everyone away – they were just as good as Thirteen Senses, and could have played more than their six songs for people and we’d still have enjoyed.

9:30 rolled round and Thirteen Senses came on, launching straight into “Contact”, and moving through their set at a decent pace. The band filled the small Luminaire with sound, making everyone feel like they’re down the front, and a real family feeling. Their new songs feel like they could make everyone at Wembley feel cosy and involved, and are truly epic. “Spirals” was a masterpiece, as was their forthcoming single “All the Love In Your Hands”.

Towards the end of the set they played “History” from their debut album, which, having not heard it before live, was just pure bliss. Angelic vocals, amazing guitars and keys, collectively combined for the penultimate song. The closing song of the set was new one “Ones and Zeros”, another anthemic song from the four-piece from Cornwall.

Overall Thirteen Senses seem to be on top of their game at the moment, and look sure to storm the UK next year with the absence of Keane and Coldplay et al releasing albums, so watch out for these boys storming the album charts soon!
