Album Review: Fake It Flowers // Beabadoobee

With a co-sign from Matt Healey, a Brits ‘Rising Star’ nomination and a viral smash hit already under her belt, Bea Kristi AKA Beabadoobee’s debut album Fake It Flowers is highly anticipated. Inspired by the likes of Pavement and Sonic Youth, Krisit is an example of how the zeitgeist circles back and repeats itself as […]Read More

Single Review: Love Collides // Shambolics

‘It’s alright, I’ll be there by your side’ is just one of the amazing lines in Shambolics’ new single ‘Love Collides’. Flooded with sentiments of longing, the heartbreak song will guarantee to make more people fall for the Fife-based band and their music. The Scottish indie band, Shambolics, released their new single ‘Love Collides’ on […]Read More

Album Review: Ohms // Deftones

There are only so many rock and metal acts that have managed to keep their sound fresh and engaging over the course of 25 years, but Deftones are certainly one of them. The Sacramento quintet’s career has been full of ups and downs, most notably the death of original bassist Chi Cheng in 2013, but […]Read More

Review: The Goodbye EP // Thomas Headon

Thomas Headon has just released another EP, his second this year! The Goodbye EP is everything and you could want and more as a follow up to his previous release, The Greatest Hits. Thomas was born in London and at the age of five his family relocated to Melbourne, Australia where he grew up and […]Read More

Album Review: Middle Child // Eliza Jaye

Prior to listening to Middle Child I was unfamiliar with Eliza Jaye, so I approached the record with a curious mind. Forty minutes and eleven tracks later my curiosity was piqued further as I stepped out of the musical kaleidoscope I had just passed through. This album is a beautifully crafted, sometimes breathtaking, but undeniably […]Read More

Album Review: Lindé // Afel Bocoum

It has been twenty-one years since the release of Alkibar, Afel Bocoum’s wandering debut so titled to mean ‘messenger of the great river’. Those two decades have seen Bocoum’s Mali transform from a fledgeling democracy into a warzone and back. And now, as of summer 2020, the country awaits the resolution of its recent coup, […]Read More

Album Review: Smile // Katy Perry

Exactly ten years ago, Katy Perry announced her arrival as a pop megastar with Teenage Dream. The album received mixed critical reviews on release but would go on to be nominated for seven Grammy Awards. Moreover, the album spawned five US number one singles, the second in history to achieve this honour, after Michael Jackson’s Bad […]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

Album Review: A Hero’s Death // Fontaines D.C.

It would be fair to say that no new band has made quite the impression that Fontaines D.C. has. The Dubliners depict Irish life through a synthesis of dirty post-punk and Joycean lyrics. The band’s new album, A Hero’s Death, follows on from their electrifying debut Dogrel, and while the band channel some of the […]Read More

Album Review: None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This

Almost 9 years on from their last album, Mike Skinner has answered many people’s prayers with the return of The Streets. The new album, or mixtape as Skinner calls it, None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive continues with The Streets’ mix of unique sounds and ability to dip into garage and […]Read More

Rejjie Snow Returns with ‘Cookie Chips’

Rejjie Snow is back with the new single ‘Cookie Chips’, featuring Cam O’bi and MF DOOM. Snow delivers sweet lyrics alongside a dreamy beat, as O’bi on the hook provides the same sort of relaxed sound featured on the song ‘Pink Lemonade’, one of the two tracks that Snow and O’bi collaborate on inside the […]Read More
