Album review: The Overtones by The Overtones

Album review: The Overtones by The Overtones

Bringing some swing music magic to their latest album, The Overtones are back and just as brilliant as ever. It’s been a tough year for the band, with the unexpected death of their band mate and lead singer Timmy Matley in April. The newly minted four piece have put a lot of emotion and passion […]

DON BROCO come to Northumbria Institute

DON BROCO come to Northumbria Institute

Don Broco are no strangers to Newcastle. Last time they played in the city was at Riverside back in summer 2015, they loved us so much they played two shows — one for each of their albums, which they played in full, Priorities and Automatic. Fast forward to 2018 and they’re back here, playing at […]

Little Mix Get Weird Tour Review

Little Mix Get Weird Tour Review

The UK’s biggest girl band, Little Mix, Get Weird with Fairy-tale sets, sparkly outfits, bright lights and plenty of hit songs.

If you told me five years ago that a girl band from X Factor were going to be doing their world tour for their third platinum selling album, I’d probably have laughed about it because everyone knows not many girl bands become so popular; especially a manually put together girl band whose individual dreams were […]

Review – Kevin Bridges in Newcastle

The Scotsman, the myth, the legend… Kevin Bridges kicked off the first night of his ‘A Whole Different Story’ tour in Newcastle Upon Tyne and he whipped up a storm of hysterical laughter within the heavily occupied City Hall as he showed the audience his funny yet slightly angry view of the world. It was […]

Review: 1D bring ‘On the Road Again’ tour to Newcastle

The boys who didn’t win X-Factor may be an original member down but that in no way compromises One Direction’s ability to perform effortlessly to the masses. On Monday night they swept away the crowd with their powerful voices and prodigious stage presence. Kicking off their huge set of 25 songs was Clouds which the […]

Lower Than Atlantis embark on their sold out UK tour before leaving music industry forever

Lower Than Atlantis burst onto the scene with a curious hybrid of punk-rock swagger and lyrically well-led tunes, playing their part in the rise of post-hardcore, alternative rock bands. Now, their chart-climbing, self-titled studio album proves that they are capable of turning their hand to a different pop sound. Northern Lights caught up with lead […]

Wolf Alice to play Newcastle venue Riverside this weekend

British alternative rock band Wolf Alice will be playing in Newcastle on March 28 as part of their UK tour. Having originally consisted of only two members, and producing folk-inspired music, the band developed their style into self-described “rocky pop” when adding a rhythm section in 2012. Since then, the band have been labeled as ones […]
