Mark your calendar because Newcastle’s alternative rockers The Samphires will be taking to The Globe’s online stage on Saturday 17th April for what is sure to be an exhilarating live show. It’s sadly come a little too soon for us all to be allowed safely in a room together, but you can be front and centre in your own living room as the show is being streamed live.

Rosa Thomas, Elise Shields and Gemma Watson’s first release, Papercuts, was well and truly immersed in that Pixies and Nirvana early 90’s sound, but new single Coppers showcases a band unafraid to experiment with more indie vibes and country sounds, with some gorgeous harmonies and enchanting lyrics like: “if hours feel like coppers weighing down jacket pockets / can we spare the change to breathe?

With material touching on universal themes of insecurity and fear, the young band have refused to let issues like global pandemics, national lockdowns and University study stand in their way and their future is looking bright. “And while we’re on the subject, things just can’t stay the same,” sings Rosa.
