Meet Me @ The Altar – ‘Hit Like A Girl‘
Meet Me @ The Altar are seeing a meteoric rise in the alternative scene with their high-energy pop-punk stylings. ‘Hit Like A Girl’ was made in celebration of Women’s History Month, inspired completely by fan comments about what it means to them to be a woman. From start to finish, this song is unwavering in female empowerment from one of the most genuine bands coming up today. The anthemic “Revolt, refuse, stand tall” is exactly the message we need to hear right now. This one is bound to drive the audience crazy when gigs come back.
‘Hit Like A Girl’ is available via Fueled By Ramen
Lauran Hibberd & Lydia Night – How Am I Still Alive?
Two unstoppable forces of modern rock teamed up this month – rising star Lauran Hibberd and The Regrettes lead singer Lydia Night – on new single ‘How Am I Still Alive?’. After touring together in 2019, they used their mutual ability to combine bubblegum vocals with heavy guitars to create the song, which won’t fail to bring a smile to your face. It sonically combines 90s alternative and pop genres to make something gloriously uplifting. Classically tongue-in-cheek, ‘How Am I Still Alive?’ will have you up and dancing in no time.
‘How Am I Still Alive?’ is available via eOne Music UK.
Inhaler – Cheer Up Baby
Dublin’s exciting new indie faves returned in March with their new single ‘Cheer Up Baby’ and announced their debut album, set for release this summer. Fans of the band were really excited about their return with the pick-me-up track, and their album debut is sure to make waves. Inhaler have obvious chemistry in their music that can only come from a band that has been working together from such a young age, and ‘Cheer Up Baby’ gives the listener a hopeful feeling that comes at the right time.

Suzi Quatro – The Devil In Me
Legendary rock n roll bassist Suzi Quatro returned this month with her 18th studio album, The Devil In Me. Here, we see Quatro go back to her rock n roll roots with a tough, confident record. The Devil In Me was written in collaboration with her son Richard Tuckey after a mass cancellation of their respective 2020 tour dates. ‘Hey Queenie’ and ‘Isolation Blues’ are standouts of the album, but give the whole thing a listen if you need to hear some good old fashioned rock and roll from one of the genre’s best.
The Devil In Me is available via Steamhammer.
