You were my life but life is far away from fair  Billie Eilish isn’t messing around.

Track Reviews: Simmer & Leave It Alone // Hayley Williams

The Paramore frontwoman returns with new music – the full album, Petals for Armor, is released 8 May – that appears to be just as much an emotional exorcism as it is an experimental solo project.

Track Review: Be Somebody // Boyce Avenue

The band of brothers from Florida certainly haven’t been making waves in the music industry in the past few years, considering they haven’t released an album as of late.

Hailing from Cardiff, Astroid Boys take the nuances […]Read More
