Track of the day? Week, month? Regardless, Tom Misch is pretty good.
The mainstream media are superbly good at kicking people when they are down. This is apparent on a daily basis when magazines and magazines of cruel comments and vicious rumours line the shelves and television hosts slur snide, harsh remarks only to humour their audiences.
The “Amy” documentary depicting the life and death of the late Amy Winehouse left a sour taste in my mouth as the role the media played in her downfall played through my mind. The documentary emphasised the toxic effect that fame can have on a person. Continue reading Rehab. (The Media’s Part in the Decline of Amy Winehouse)
If you have any interest in the indie music scene, it’s more than likely that you’ve heard of High Tyde. The Brighton youngsters have recently dropped their brand new single “Glow” after having received a huge amount of support from across the UK, including from names you’ll definitely have heard of such as Greg James and Scott Mills.
In true fan-girl style, I caught up with Cody, the singer of the band, to ask a few questions about the colour of his socks and which of his band members he’d most want to date – and, of course, a little bit about the single, too.
Welcome to Delirious Antidotes! High Tyde was founded in 2012, can you talk me through the name of the band
High Tyde was the name from the beginning… we live by the sea and found comfort in the name. It would be weird playing under anything else.
How would you best describe the different personalities within the group and what they bring to your music?
We all have similar personalities when it comes to some things but then completely different with others. When writing music we all fire different things at each other and it works so well, we create some of the weirdest sounds and craziest tunes.
You can choose just three of your favourite aspects of being in a band, what would they be?
Playing live, after Parties, writing music.
You can also choose three things you dislike most about band life. Talk to me about them.
Getting ill on tour, that is literally the worst because tour is the funnest time and when your ill you just wanna sleep and not do anything! That’s it though, I f*cking love being in a band haha.
Talk to us about your brand new track, “Glow”. Buy it here.
It’s about aspiration to a certain person or object. ‘You glow all over me’ means that someone is filling someone else with positive energy and inspiring them.
Jamie Young is a singer-songwriter from the UK and with his new EP release looming, I caught him for a quick chat about all things from black socks to his musical influences. Cue talk of Matt Healy, boys and girls.
Welcome to Delirious Antidotes! It’s an absolute pleasure to have you on the blog. Can you quickly describe who you are to give my readers a short overview?
Thank you for having me! I’m Jamie Young 22 years old, Singer/Songwriter from Worcestershire.
Over the last few months, you’ve been working on your new EP. What can fans expect to hear from you?
Yeah I’ve been recording my Debut EP for the past 6/7 months now with another artist who’s producing it for me, Ben Stancombe. I think people can expect a range of different styles from the EP as I like to experiment with different things with music. I’m working with a very talented producer so I’m really excited about releasing it next year; we’ve spent a long time writing the EP so hopefully the hard work shows through the EP when people listen to it.

Founded in 2014, Ghost Color is a rock band from Sacramento, CA. Releasing their first single “This is Nighttime” in November of 2014, the band quickly followed it up with a free four song EP and another single in February of 2015 and their fan base has been growing increasingly ever since.
I was lucky enough to catch up with the trio for a quick interview, and it went a little like this:
Welcome to Delirious Antidotes! Tell us a bit about the band?
Eric: We’re a three piece and our drummer is the main vocalist.
Chris: That makes our writing process a lot different from any other bands we’ve been in.
Bryan: As musicians, all three of us are coming from very different places. But we still find writing very easy. which makes for something exciting for all of us.
Ghost Color was founded in 2014, can you talk me through the name of the band?
Chris: We were thinking the color of ghosts would be transparent and transparency is another word for honesty, and we are all big believers in being honest. Honest with ones self, ones friends and family, the world, and with ones art. Continue reading Ten, plus the one Bryan doesn’t know we know about.
Jagged Little Thrills is British rock band made up of five friends – Thomas Wright, Matthew “Weg” Wetherill, Dave Vegas, Tom Wright, and Rob Gray. They’ve been described as “the love child of Jack White and Peter Doherty” with their unique punk indie rock sound and big personalities. After discovering them not that long ago, I had the absolute pleasure of catching up with them for a quick chat that took a turn like this:
Welcome to Delirious Antidotes! Tell us a bit about the band?
We’re a guitar band from Northampton that is made up of five close friends and musicians that just got fed up with the normalities of the ‘nine to five’.
Weg: My favourite phrase used to describe us as a band was ‘all in’, and that really says it all.
With almost 2,000 Facebook followers, Jagged Little Thrills has collected quite the audience over a space of time. How important is this support to you as a band?
Thomas: If people didn’t enjoy our music there would be no point in doing it!
Weg: We’ve always been incredibly lucky when it comes to support and have always been followed dragged and chased around the country in genuinely unbelievable numbers. It means everything to us.
Tom: Without the support we have had, none of what we have achieved so far would of been possible.
Dave: That’s what it’s all about. That’s why we wanted to wait a while before releasing a record. We wanted to take the songs, play them live around the country, see what works for people, what doesn’t. And the response in such a short time has been brilliant.
