Over the past few years, The Mic has established itself firmly as Nottingham's official music publication, whilst also becoming the biggest student music publication in Britain. To celebrate the need for creative growth and independence, the latest edition of the magazine is the first in its history to be printed in A4, promising bigger and bolder designs to capture the attention of our readers.

The fiftieth instalment of The Mic showcases a blockbuster list of interviews and features with some of Britain' most loved artists right now, including Everything Everything, Mahalia, Dream Wife, The Big Moon and The Japanese House, all of whom present unique tales of their 2020 experience.

As unique tales go, Glass Animals have certainly fulfilled their share of highs and lows in recent years, and we are thrilled to have them as our cover interview for this edition. Frontman Dave Bayley sat down to explain to Managing Director Ben Standring how the Oxford quartet dodged death and despair before launching into their extraordinary third record.

Elsewhere in the magazine, The Magic Gang and Black Honey delve into their developing artistry, whilst an extensive focus on the rising Nottingham music scene sees Matt Andrews chatting to returning hero Saint Raymond, whilst Louis Griffin catches up with band of the moment Do Nothing. As features go, this issue presents a bold range of important topics, from the growing popularity of vinyl to the harrowing continuation of sexual misconduct in the music industry.

This issue was created and shaped throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. Like many independent creatives, we rely on the growth of the music industry to help fund what we need to do as a magazine. Purchasing a magazine ensures that we can continue as a publication. We thank you for your continued support during these uncertain times.
