So, it seems our beloved gigs and festivals will be remaining ‘virtual’ for a while longer – but while we wait ever so patiently for the day we can come together in a sweaty room or muddy field with a pint in hand, singing our hearts out – bands are still grafting. Whether they’re producing brand spanking new material, live-streaming from their living rooms or planning future tours – we’ve pulled together a playlist of artists we think you should keep an eye on these next few months of 2020 and beyond.. MCR Wire List – Ones To Watch is 2 hour+ mixtape of local bands and musicians who have piqued our interest – including some up and coming outfits. From post-punk four-piece The Red Stains with their debut track Mannequin and Suave Martyrs’ newest release Footsteps, to Lucy Deakin’s pop-flavoured Bad In Love – It’s a mixed and by no means a complete list – who’ve we missed? Give us a shout and let u know – but in the meantime, press play and enjoy.
