Live Review: Lennon Stella // O2 Shepherd’s Bush London

Following her band’s small introduction, Lennon Stella walks on to the stage with nothing but her guitar and an infectious smile. With such a strong stage presence, it’s hard to believe that the singer/songwriter is only 20 years old. Whilst opening the set with new track ‘Black Light‘ might seem an unusual choice, it was […]Read More

Festival Review: Live At Leeds 2019

There are many things that Leeds covets as a city – cheap beers, being the birthplace of M&S – but perhaps its most precious asset is its thudding music scene, and with it, the annual Live At Leeds Festival. Kicking off my day at 3pm were the floppy-haired rockers Drenge at O2 Academy, who wryly […]Read More

Live Review: The Killers // Manchester Arena

Walking into Manchester Arena as the band head to the stage, you would think you have arrived at a ‘menimist’ convention with the stage donning a large mars symbol and a fluorescent cowboy figure, an ideology quickly opposed as Flowers strolls on stage with his flamboyant poses and masculinity camouflaged.

Live Review: Wolf Alice // Barrowlands, Glasgow – 12.11.17

The Barrowlands: one of the better music venues to exist. The renovated ballroom recently hosted a weekend’s worth of Wolf Alice, with a sold-out Saturday show and a less crowded Remembrance Sunday slot. The London band visited Scotland and told us they love it up here, intricately weaving EPs and albums, complete with breaks and […]Read More

Live Review: The Cribs // Leeds First Direct Arena –

Despite it being a 10th anniversary tour of ‘Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever’ it was a night of firsts at the Leeds First Direct arena this past Saturday. It was the first time that The Cribs had headlined an arena; it was the first time in the UK that Lee Ranaldo graced the stage for […]Read More

Live Review // British Sea Power – O2 Academy 2

Mid noughties indie bands don’t tend to have the best track records in consistency, most of them have produced a couple of decent records then faded into obscurity however British Sea Power aren’t your average indie fodder. What the band have been able to do since the release of their incredible debut album The Decline […]Read More

Live Review: Circa Waves // Oxford O2 Academy – 25/03/2017

From the crowd reaction to both support bands INHEAVEN and The Magic Gang, which is thunderous from the already packed out venue, it’s immediately obvious how well headline act Circa Waves are going to go down tonight. Already six dates into the tour, they’re on ruthless live form and leave no time for the fans […]Read More

Live Review: Marsicans // The Platform, Lincoln – 02.03.17

As part of their current UK tour Marsicans last night took to the stage at The Platform, an intimate venue in the heart of Lincoln’s Student Union. Supporting the Leeds indie-pop outfit were local bands The Ultraviolet and Albany. Marsicans, who have made it to Spotify’s The Indie List, and been featured on YouTube alternative […]Read More
