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

‘The Velvet Rope’ is the second single to come from Daniel Peterson‘s upcoming debut album Welcome To My House, Bumblebee.

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.

Track Review: Bird // Billie Marten

Ethereal, haunting, and delicate, ‘Bird’ by Billie Marten is a sensational single. At just sixteen years old, Billie sings with the weight and emotion of a soul much older than her own.
