If last week’s Phoenix FM Creative session wasn’t enough live Music, then this week we had a little more- in the shape of Modovar. The guys were in the studio and performed two tracks from their debut album- Sea of Unspoken Words, and a bonus song for us….Yazoo’s Only You.

My music pick for this week;
Thu 25 Apr Frank Turner – The Forum, London
Frank Turner is a musician born in Bahrain who has toured the UK extensively and started solo acoustic shows prior to the demise of his former band, Million Dead.
Thu 25 Apr Gaz Coombes – The Garage, London
A night of live music from Gaz Coombes- from the former Supergrass front man
Sun 28 Apr Noah and The Whale – Palace Theatre, London
Noah and the Whale are from Twickenham and formed in 2006. The band consists of Charlie Fink, Tom Hobden, Matt Owens, Fred Abbott, and Michael Petulla
Mon 29 Apr Chvrches – Village Underground, London
Chvrches are Iain Cook, Martin Doherty and Lauren Mayberry – three distinct individuals bearing three distinct personalities on a consummate whole. Combining indie sensibilities and aesthetics with barbed pop hooks and an unhealthy obsession with Prince, Chvrches take elements of classic electronica, hip hop and post-punk, and yet sound like none of the above.
