Starting from this month and continuing over the four months afterwards, I’ll be writing an article which showcases the talents of five different bands from the South Wales area.
It seemed that in 2011 the South Wales music scene was thriving.The pioneers Lostprophets, The Blackout and Kids in glass houses were breaking into the top 40 with their radio friendly tunes. The spoke to the youth of the time.
Fast forward to 2016, the South Wales music scene has had a big overhaul. Not only have those fans grown up but all three bands are no longer active due to a multiple of reasons. However, all is not lost. In the wake of their demises, there lies a whole bunch of fresh new talent. Below are the first five bands:
Breathe in the silence
