Single Review: The Red Monroes – The Way I Feel

Single Review: The Red Monroes – The Way I Feel

Traditional rock fans, rejoice! The Red Monroes provide a track that feels trapped in a box nostalgic for the screaming guitars of AC/DC and the placid tones of love found on just about any album from Chris Cornell. The Way I Feel is traditional and cliché, but serves its purpose well.   Clocking in at a sturdy four and a […]

Single Review: Steven Faulkner – The Man You Deserve

Single Review: Steven Faulkner – The Man You Deserve

The prominent single of his Bare Bones – Acoustic album, The Man You Deserve is a simple, effective track from Steven Faulkner.   Not quite as stripped back as his album would suggest, The Man You Deserve is a cacophony of instruments which set the stage for Faulkner’s exceptional talent as a singer. He provides a grand variety here, showcasing the best […]

Single Review: Jay Morgan – Someone to Hold While You Cry

Single Review: Jay Morgan – Someone to Hold While You Cry

Whether writing a song in the early stages of your career or penning your first piece over two decades in, the fear that must grip some songwriters is infectious. Jay Morgan’s firs track, Someone to Hold While You Cry, marks his debut not as a performer, but as a writer.  His clear vocal talent shines through a […]

Drag Race UK song takes the nation by storm

Drag Race UK song takes the nation by storm

‘Bing, Bang, Bong, UK Hun?’ These are lyrics of the song that has been stuck in all of our heads since last week, when the contestants of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK performed the repetitive but fun bop as part of a challenge. The fifth episode of season two saw the queens compete for this week’s […]

EP Review: Eleni Drake – Vanilla Sky

EP Review: Eleni Drake – Vanilla Sky

Amalgamating artists from a variety of different genres is an impossible accomplishment. To take their stylings and their showmanship, their unique sounds and definable qualities, only to mash them together with surprisingly strong results, is a pipe dream for many independent artists. There are rare examples of so many influences rubbing together and paying off, […]

Single Review: IN Peril – Bad Dreams and Battering Rams

Single Review: IN Peril – Bad Dreams and Battering Rams

Conventional narratives and strokes of predictability, IN Peril’s latest track, Bad Dreams and Battering Rams is your usual display of steady, unchanging guitar riffs and a singer throwing all the messages and constructed imagery he can at a flagging project.  A song two minutes too long, yet its opening half is the weaker portion. When Bad Dreams and Battering […]

Single Review: Cats That Bark – O’Rileys

Single Review: Cats That Bark – O’Rileys

Music must have meaning. When words and lyrical leaps are made for the sake of it, there is a lack of emotion to be found. Cats That Bark, a four-piece band from Hull, provide a loving ode to their eponymous venue with latest single O’Rileys.   Some talented guitar riffs and an exceptional, crashing drum session open the […]

Album Review: Foo Fighters – Medicine at Midnight

Foo Fighters new album Medicine at Midnight. Like no other Foo music, but captures us all.

Foo Fighters is one of the bands I grew up listing to. My Dad would constantly have it blasting in the kitchen as he cooked. It’s the type of band where I could listen to their songs over and over! The band released their tenth studio album last Friday. Medicine at Midnight releases two months […]

Movie Review: Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions

Movie Review: Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions

There’s a real argument to make against the existence of Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions. An album should convey its messages on the tracks, all the best songs manage to do so. To make a documentary that looks to dissect the songs just in case someone missed the memo or message, seems a tad redundant. Folklore: […]
