Manchester’s Stop The Blackout are taking the music world by storm with their anthemic, stadia-worthy soundscapes. Debut single ‘Headlights!’, released on ifm records in November, was heavily praised by BBC Manc, NME, Q Radio and used on ITV during coverage of Champions League and international football matches. Follow up single ‘Oxygen’ has proven equally as popular, becoming an instant live favourite amongst their rapidly growing fan base.
