  1. Heyrocco – ‘Destroyer’

Will get a bit personal now: I’ve never hidden my love for 90s grunge heroes Nirvana and lo-fi behemoths, Pavement. What if a 2019 track is heavily influenced by those two bands and at the same time breaths fresh air? Then you have ‘Destroyer‘ by Heyrocco, a North Carolina trio, that if you happen to be in UK the very next few days make sure not to miss those dudes…
