    Amy Grindhouse live at Sunbird Records, Darwen 27th January 2017 Describing themselves as a “two piece instrumental twinkle band with jazzy/emo/punk influences…”, this stripped back duo of Connor and Matthew delivered an entertaining and fun filled performance of self penned compositions that weaved effortlessly in-and-out of intricate, texturally rich guitar…

Let’s make ‘something’ happen We scour the streets for improvised locations for a photoshoot. We stumble upon an abandoned rooftop carpark with industrial halogen lighting. I use Sony A7 freelensing a…
