Album Review: Renaissance // Aluna

Since becoming one half of AlunaGeorge in 2012, Aluna’s infectious vocals have graced chart toppers such as the Disclosure hit ‘White Noise’, and the intoxicating jam ‘Attracting Flies’.  Following 2016’s poppy sophomore effort, ‘I Remember’, the electric duo put out a six-track EP called Champagne Eyes, which had a markedly low-key R&B vibe. Since then, collaborations with Robyn producer […]Read More

Album Review: Another Me // Sarah Walk

Three years have passed since Sarah Walk released debut album Little Black Book, and much has changed. Cut to the 28th August 2020, and we find the LA-based artist releasing her sophomore album Another Me (Little Indiependent). Exposing as it does an artist possessing renewed vigour, the EP’s title could easily be referring to her […]Read More

Album Review: Open Up Your Head // Sea Girls

From selling out shows, playing at festivals, to being featured on BBC Radio One’s Future Sounds, it didn’t take long for this 4 piece band to enrapture the indie music scene. For the last couple of years Sea Girls have brought unforgettable melodies and true-to-life lyrics. Now, Sea Girls have released their debut album Open […]Read More

Blast From The Past: Catching a Tiger // Lissie

Despite the impact of a global pandemic, 2020 has seen some quality new music releases. So why choose to review a ten year old album which only received moderate chart success on initial release? Lissie has marked the ten year anniversary of her debut album with a haunting new single ‘Just Because I Can’. The […]Read More

Track Review: Midnight Sky // Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus is no stranger to reinventing herself.  From the pop and R&B sounds of the Bangerz album through to the psychedelic pop of Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, Miley returned to her country routes with 2017’s Younger Now. As she gears up for release of her next album She is Miley Cyrus, the […]Read More

Album Review: A Celebration of Endings // Biffy Clyro

Biffy Clyro’s latest effort ‘A Celebration of Endings’ continues the running theme of the Kilmarnock based outfit providing some of the best music the British scene has seen in a long time. The group’s rough and gritty rocker aesthetic is exactly the shot in the arm that is needed in these more than worrying times, […]Read More

Track Review: Honest With You // Laura Marano

Post the success of her first single ‘Boombox’ in 2016, Laura Marano fell off the musical radar. She remained stagnant with no album releases—not even a breath of new music after her second single ‘Lala’ released that same year. Fast forward to 2018 after a collaboration with Bo Talks called ‘Weekend’. Since then, Marano has […]Read More

Track Review: the lakes // Taylor Swift

On the 24th July the world went crazy when Taylor Swift dropped her eighth studio album, folklore. The surprises, however, didn’t end there. The physical copy of the album (order here) comes with bonus track ‘the lakes’, which might be my favourite track on folklore.  Read more: Album Review: folklore // Taylor Swift The melody […]Read More

Track Review: Spanish Bombs // Hinds

As temperatures rose to the low 40s in Spain, the four Madrileñas chose the last day of July to release their jangly rendition of Clash favourite ‘Spanish Bombs’.  The song was first released four years after the death of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco and reflects on similarities between the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) and violence […]Read More
