Flamin’ heck!

With the cobwebs of winter banished, the sound of tinnies cracking open along the harbourside and shows aplenty to get excited about, Bristol once again shows us that when the sun comes out, it’s the best place to be.

I’m super excited to welcome Bahrain’s Flamingods onto the front cover – between their other-worldly talents and sheer enthusiasm, the new album is something else and, luckily for us, Art is Hard Records are hosting them at the Exchange on 6th May.

Elsewhere, we chat to Yama Warashi, a Bristol-based artist leading the way when it comes to innovation – she talks to Will about taking inspiration from both the everyday and the supernatural. We also have Rozi Plain, The Earth & Me and a surprise new record from Oliver Wilde. See, we told you Bristol is the best.
