DARIA are an underground rock band hailing from Angers-France. Underground. What the fuck does that mean, you might ask? It means that in the last ten plus years Daria have been one of those bands who work hard, tour again and again, self-fund and self-release their own records & tours if needed.

Daria exist not for fame or fortune but because they give a fuck about music and need to express that to other like-minded people. Possessed with a DIY-or-die punk rock spirit, DARIA emit a collective heartbeat that walks the path forged by the U.S. indie rock scene that gave us bands such as Jawbox, Hot Water Music and Burning Airlines. Bands that blur the lines between traditional punk, garage rock and indie are tricky to pigeonhole, unlike two-dimensional ‘Oi’ punk or ‘Madchester’ indie shoegazers.

And in 2014 describing a band as Alt-Rock is like saying you like vanilla ice-cream. It’s fucking boring. It’s even less accurate when Daria are capable of taking a post-rock influenced detour when you least expect it. This is a band that can deliver live. DARIA played more than 80 shows for their last record and on their first UK tour, the manager of the Non-Zero venue in
Dundee described the French rockers as, „One of the best bands I‘ve had onin my six years at the venue.“

Their fourth album “Impossible Colours” was produced and recorded with J. Robbins in Baltimore, MD, USA last February and is being released early 2016 on German label Arctic Rodeo Recordings.

So going back to what I mean by ‘underground’ - I’m thinking that DARIA might be France’s answer to your underground heroes who share the same values, spirit and intensity. Or as they say in Derry, “Pure Tense!” For disciples at the Church of Noise, it’s time to embark on a French pilgrimage.

Fire In The Radio
Philadelphia-based Fire in the Radio will release their sophomore album New Air on May 5th via Wednesday Records. The album is the follow-up to their 2015 acclaimed record Telemetry. New Air finds the band pushing their unique brand of indie-punk in a fresh direction incorporating elements of new wave, grunge, and shoegaze drone into tightly crafted pop songs. The result is a notably darker effort than Telemetry, and proves to be the bands most ambitious and successful collection of songs to date. New Air was recorded at Gradwell House studios (Beach Slang, Into It. Over It.) and mixed by Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung). Fire in the Radio began work on New Air following significant touring in support of 2015’s Telemetry, which included performances at Gainesville, Florida’s FEST and Montreal’s Pouzza Fest.

"The Philadelphia scene has always been pretty vibrant; the rest of the world has just finally started to notice it. The past few years have seen everyone from The Menzingers and Beach Slang to Modern Baseball and Restorations impress with wildly original albums…Fire In The Radio is the latest Philly band to keep the streak alive." - New Noise Magazine
