Album Review: Dodge & Burn // The Dead Weather

The Dead Weather are back. Dirtier, fuzzier and more un-hinged than ever before. The super-group consisting of Alison Mosshart (The Kills), Jack White (The White Stripes), Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs) pack punches all over the place on album three, Dodge & Burn. Their formation has long been based on […]Read More

Every year the game gets a facelift with fresh graphics, a new cover star and of course a new soundtrack.

Album Review: Yours, Dreamily // The Arcs

Dan Auerbach may have taken a break from The Black Keys, but in many ways, The Black Keys haven’t taken a break from him. Although he brings new formulas and ideas to the table with each of his many side-projects and musical adventures, he still carries the voice and essence of The Black Keys wherever […]Read More

Track Review: Kingdom Come // Damien Ike

Damien Ike, British newcomer to the alt-pop scene, is rising from the ground with his new track ‘Kingdom Come’. After working among the likes of David Kosten (Marina and the Diamonds) and Sacha Skarbek (Lana Del Rey) on previous releases, Damien Ike joined forces with producers Lostboy and JMAC to compose this refreshing track. The […]Read More

Single Review: Pain Of Dancers // Daisy Victoria

I’ve recently been stressing the importance of supporting your local radio stations, one of which is your local BBC Introducing show. You’ll be amazed by the amount of talent you find and end up loving! The reason I point this out is because without BBC Introducing Norfolk, I wouldn’t have found the gem that is […]Read More

Single Review: I Feel Love (Every Million Miles) // The

Everyone’s favourite supergroup is back. No, not The Last Shadow Puppets *fangirls sit down in disappointment*. I’m of course talking about Alison Mosshart fronted giant, The Dead Weather. They’re back with new single ‘I Feel Love (Every Millon Miles)’, which comes with a stormy music video featuring Alison battling the elements like only she can. […]Read More

EP Review: Under Your Teeth // Fortunato

Under Your Teeth, the latest EP from Suffolk-based five-piece Fortunato, is a collection of classic basement indie rock, with a unique charm. With vibes similar to that of Wolf Alice, Fortunato provide an interesting sound that is phenomenally well-received in the Bury St. Edmunds music scene. Consisting of four tracks and coming in at around […]Read More

Track Review: 4 Miles // TRASH

Think Alice in Wonderland. Think Alice in Wonderland mauled and fallen and transformed into a sinister dark reigning queen of the forbidden forest, hooked on LSD and meth and coke and all the trippy hallucinogens you were always warned not to take. Think Alice in Wonderland with double the magic, smothered in black glitter and violet velvet, floating in […]Read More

EP Review: We Wait // Boy On Guitar

California indie rock Boy On Guitar‘s celestial, moon-kissed, and, at times, delicately sinister EP We Wait is a sublime offering, mixing the vulnerable and wicked in a dulcet blend. The female-fronted three-piece features Genesis Jennings’s floaty vocals echoing Lauren Mayberry’s of CHVRCHES, their sound combined with the ethereal magic of Bombay Bicycle Club and the twisted fantasies of Wolf Alice. The band are nothing short of […]Read More

Top 10 Hole Songs

10. Nobody’s Daughter Many do not consider Hole’s fourth album – Nobody’s Daughter – to truly be a product of the band, largely due it resembling a barely veiled solo endeavour by lead singer, Courtney Love.  However, Courtney Love is very much (if you’ll pardon the pun) the whole of Hole in terms of artistry, as proven by […]Read More

London producer Miracles is slowly building his presence in the alternative music scene with his most recent release, ‘Return To What You Need’, featuring rapping by Taylor Mace from Birmingham.
