The Tipping Point Showcase October

Generator Disorder & Club Fandango team up again to bring you The Tipping Point Showcase featuring the finest new bands from around the UK.


This month we have two fantastic bands recently tipped on The Tipping Point:

‘Seven Year Glitch’ is a Rumour Cubes track and that means cinematic, string-led post-rock. If post-rock’s mandate is to re-contexualise the instruments responsible for 60 years of rock ‘n’ roll, and use them to make a new sort of music, Rumour Cubes are in line with that doctrine. ‘Seven Year Glitch’ is a delicate song, full of ambient beauty.

Presumably a reference to the infamous ‘seven year itch’ faced by married couples, the title of the song frames the emotional arc of the soundscape. Reading into this brings out interpretative possibilities; is the song lamenting infidelity and disaster? Is it written from experience? Perhaps the duet viola/violin parts that interact so tragically, represent a couple at a glitch in their relationship, and the listener is peering through the fourth wall at their pained conversation.

“They make music to make and break hearts, full of cinematic sentiment that gets stuck in your soul. Think of them as the soundtrack to your daydreams.”
– THE 405

Our tip today opens with glittery guitars, bearing down on a melancholic but warm tale of a relationship in repair. It’s a lovely notion of a couple coming together on a promise to strengthen their bond, by making a vow to take care of their love.

London’s Wide Skies first met in 2012 and have been working hard in Brick Lane Studios finding their sound. We have their first creation for you today, called ‘Take Care of Love’.

The production is easy on the ears and builds subtly. The percussion and an acoustic guitar really brings the story to life. It almost feels like a film, with the relationship’s problems exposed quickly, with ups and downs in emotion, before grand strings and big energy beams through in the music towards the end.

Vocalist Hannah Caughlin has the endearing softness of Natasha Khan but together with her bandmate Jamie McDonald they achieve a merge not unlike Nico and Lou Reed. They have experience under their belt, Hannah having worked with Roots Manuva in the past and Jamie having toured with The Strokes in his past band South.
