Album Review: Smile // Katy Perry

Exactly ten years ago, Katy Perry announced her arrival as a pop megastar with Teenage Dream.

Track Review: One of a Kind // Katie Kittermaster

I first saw Katie Kittermaster supporting Lucy Spraggan at an intimate gig in Norwich in 2019. I remember being drawn to her unique sounding vocals and the honest and captivating way she interacted with the audience. Fast forward a year and the nineteen-year-old singer songwriter has supported Boyzlife and, since the pandemic started, been active […]Read More

Track Review: Baby It’s You // London Grammar

In 2017 the indie-pop trio London Grammar delivered their second studio album Truth Is a Beautiful Thing, which carried that true British indie-pop style throughout, with similar sounds to Wolf Alice and Florence + the Machine.

Track Review: Suicide // Lada Beseda

Dark with a classy touch, the track begins by setting its tone. This is followed by rough piano playing to exhibit a misty haze, which eases us into a false sense of security. ‘Suicide’, released on 4th September, is trap with touches of soul and monochrome pop. Lada Beseda, singer-songwriter and producer born and raised […]Read More

Album Review: Death of the Party // The Magic Gang

The Magic Gang return with their sophomore album, Death of the Party , a reflective and occasionally moody piece in which the band dig deeper, but that is still permeated by optimism. It’s fairly common to see an indie rock outlet fade into the relative obscurity of the genre after a successful debut album, but […]Read More

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

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).

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

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?
