Melodrama by Lorde is an album I have been waiting for with baited breath, being one of my favourite artists over the past ten years. I was a little worried by the sound of the album’s first single ‘Green Light’. I liked the song well enough, however, it didn’t seem to me to have that […]
London Grammar’s latest album, ‘Truth is a beautiful thing’ is an absolutely stunning journey of emotion and sweeping scores. I enjoyed their debut too, but this album has just completely got its hooks in me. Hannah Reid’s voice is simply stunning as she powers through the songs, at times with an air of Florence Welch […]
One of my favourite meloncholic artists, Scarlett Taylor, is back with her latest E.P. ‘3’. All of her previous releases have been great. So my biggest fear with writing about this one was that I would end up repeating myself. You see, if Scarlett had released similar songs to her previous album, ‘Churches’, although I’d […]
Beth Jeans Houghton goes by the alias “Du Blonde” and is not only an awesome musician, but also works in photography; comic books and illustrations. I had the opportunity to ask her a bunch of questions about herself which she has kindly answered for us here. She was super fast in answering these questions, however, […]
Hante’s music is always a dark, dreamy escape that I am addicted to getting lost into. As soon as I learned of her new release, ‘Between Hope and Danger’, I immediately had to listen to it.
Welcome back to milk by Du Blonde is fierce, bold and packs a huge punch in its 36 minutes. Du Blonde, real name Beth Jeans Houghton takes us to many different places in this album. I’m excited to introduce you to it. From the very opening crunching guitar riff of ‘Black Flag’, this album will […]
The LUX E.P. by Bad Electric is a super catchy, infectious synth E.P. with vocal influences sounding like Edwyn Collins; David Bowie and Lou Reed.
Lucid by Scarlett Taylor is a very strong footing from which her career seems to be growing well from. Her unique, almost-derelict sounding aesthetic is something to be enjoyed, with Scarlett never afraid to lay her voice bare against these haunting soundscapes. “Monster Movie” from this debut album is a perfect example of this. Although […]
In Virginia the soundtrack is a first-class citizen. It’s not simply just a well-written collection of pieces made for each scene, but additionally is a living, breathing creature itself. It weaves its way through you when listening, conjuring images either from the rural Virginia of the game’s setting, or any other place you care to find […]
“Who You Selling For” by The Pretty Reckless sounds to me to be their most ambitious album to date. Their third full album release sees them stepping up their game, incorporating fresh sounding elements while still holding on to that signature “Reckless” sound. Each Pretty Reckless album has been longer than the last, with this […]
