Each week on her radio show, Meagan introduces her listeners to a new band she’s really into right now. This week it's With Confidence
Each week on her radio show, Meagan introduces her listeners to a new band she’s really into right now. And then she writes it up and pops it online. Here is that write up for this week.
There's just something about those Australian bands…
I first heard about With Confidence when they opened for 5 Seconds of Summer (also Australian!). Their music was immediately impactful because of everything it representation – the struggles of mental health.
The band – which is made up of Josh, Inigo, Jayden and Luke – spend their time writing and singing songs that focus on depression, loneliness and suicide.
In the past few years they’ve had success with their song ‘Voldemort’ which sheds light on depression, a topic close to my heart. The song has been released in three different version – all accessible on Spotify.
Their first EP, ‘Better…
James Gilmore interviews the East London duo about their new release 'Sleeptalk'
As we’re coming out of the summer, we’re all really trying to grasp onto those summery vibes for one moment longer. And, The New Coast are making it very easy to do just that.
The East London duo – made up of Nick Blyth and Chris Cheater – have been releasing music as The New Coast since 2016, and with each track their movement has been growing bigger and better.
The first single (‘Lost In Your Love’) is close to reaching 500K streams on Spotify at the time of writing.
Most recent release ‘Sleeptalk’ caught our attention for being everything that the band represents – the dreamy, indie-pop beat contrasting against the epic drum in the chorus; it’s as nostalgic as it is current. With this in mind, we had to sit down with the band and chat about where they’re at right now.
We're going to be with R5 on the Nottingham and Bristol dates of the New Addictions Tour
Seeing a band live is unlike any other experience – you know the songs, you follow the band members on every social media platform imaginable… now you get to see them in action!
But, what happens before? How does the band get ready for the show? What does sound check look like?
This weekend R5 land in the UK to kick off the European leg of their New Addictions Tour. And we’re going to be there giving you a view of everything going on behind the scenes.
On Sunday 17th September we will be joining R5 in Nottingham and on Monday 18th September we will be with the band in Bristol before, during and after their sets at Rock City and Fleece respectively.

James Gilmore writes about Roman Armstrong's final show on W!ZARD Radio Station after nearly 6 years at the radio station
The following is a letter from James Gilmore, Founder and Managing Director of W!ZARD Radio Media
This evening was Roman Armstrong’s final radio show on W!ZARD Radio Station.
Our second-longest running presenter (after only myself), Roman has been an anchor through all of the amazing change and growth this coming has gone through over the past nearly 6 years he has been broadcasting with us.
What started (and continued) as two hours of fun, mischief and ridiculousness on a Sunday evening has led to some of my greatest memories and one of my best friends. The ending of Roman’s radio show was long-anticipated and was mutually agreed earlier this summer.
I am lucky to call Roman a close friend, someone who I know I will be speaking to as we both get old, and one of the most talented people I may ever know.
