EP Review: Weekend Lover // WAX

Blending a unique mix of 80s synth pop and contemporary indie rock, Weekend Lover, the debut EP from London/Tunbridge Wells four piece WAX, exemplifies perfectly the band’s diverse musical abilities and interesting synthesis of genres. Playing on themes such as loneliness, lust, and present day conceptions of masculinity, the release expresses the highs and lows of […]Read More

Live Review: Jamie T // Brixton Academy – 09.10.2016

Jamie T is one of modern music’s enigmas; seemingly invisible to the everyday pop music consumer, whilst reluctantly possessing a god-like status in the eyes of his hordes of followers. This state of existence has surely never been more prevalent than now, on the second night of his three sold out Brixton shows. The South […]Read More

Live Review: Mac DeMarco // KOKO, London 28.06.16

Mac DeMarco is special … really really special – he’s something of a cult phenomenon, a totally anachronistic character, who just entices you into his weird world. DeMarco acts as the poster boy of the whole ‘indie slacker’ scene, and through the apparel of the crowd this style is clear as denim jackets, worn caps, […]Read More

Track Review: Break The Silence // Palace

After turning heads with debut EP ‘Lost In The Night’, Palace are back and once again showcase their now trademarked gossamer coated melodies. New single ‘Break The Silence’ seeks to build upon previous releases, however it appears that the London-based quartet have decided to step things up a notch. Dainty notes seem to have picked […]Read More

Song of the Week: See How They Run // Whenyoung

Discovering new music is easily one of the finer things in life. Much like finding a £10 note in your pocket or realising that your eyebrows are actually so on fleek today, music is a great way to keep people happy. In a time where individuals settle for the same morning commute to do the […]Read More

TV Review: Legends of Tomorrow // Episodes 10 – 12

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Fj-NqW8_M8 Episode 10 – Progeny: The beginning of this episode brings us to the year 2147, as Rip works on locating Savage once again. The series is starting to feel a little tired now – the team consistently search for Savage and never really get any closer to defeating him, simply going round in circles […]Read More

Live Review: Explosions In The Sky // Brighton Dome –

I had high expectations for Explosions In The Sky, which were amplified by both the fact they were playing in one of Brighton’s best music venues, the Brighton Dome, and that We Were Promised Jetpacks were supporting. Explosions In The Sky are a post-rock band hailing all the way from Texas. Although their music is primarily instrumental, […]Read More

Album Review: Curve of The Earth // Mystery Jets

2016 sees the return of many bands, and here we have the sixth studio album Curve Of The Earth, by Mystery Jets. This came as the first new taste of music since the release of the Americana influenced Radlands, back in 2012. Curve Of The Earth opens with ‘Telomere’; with an electronic opening to the […]Read More

Live Review: Blossoms // Scala, London, 25.02.16

Blossoms have to be one of the most hyped up and coming bands at present. A great sense of anticipation was felt as people from all corners of the UK flocked into the doors of their sold out show at London’s infamous Scala. Blossoms’s unique brand of 60’s inspired pop translates fantastically into a live […]Read More

Track Review: On My One // Jake Bugg

After an extended period of quiet, dropping few hints about his new record, Jake Bugg’s unforeseen return occurred on the 16th of February. ‘On My One’ is dark, sparsely accompanied and a concise two minutes and fifteen seconds in length. Though he has touched on this sound before with songs such as ‘Strange Creatures’ and […]Read More

Track Review: Gardenia // Iggy Pop

Post Pop Depression will be the first release of new music from Iggy Pop since he reunited with The Stooges for 2013’s ‘Ready To Die’. This album comes as a collaboration with Queen of the Stone Age frontman, Josh Holme and will be released on the 18th March 2016. ‘Gardenia’, sees the first helping of this […]Read More

Live Review: Little Comets // Concorde 2, Brighton 21.02.16

Northeast indie-rock trio, Little Comets, graced the stage of Brighton’s Concorde 2 for the fourth time since 2012 on Sunday night. A sold out show, the room was packed to the rafters with music lovers of all ages, demonstrating that the gig-goers of the city are anything but tired of the bands electric live performances.
