Album Review: Mura Masa – Mura Masa

July 29, 2017 | 0 Comments

In December 2016, Mura Masa announced a follow up to his EP, with a full length album entitled To Fall Out of Love To.  Over half a year later, he’s released his now self-titled album, Mura Masa. Changing the title to his alias feels purposeful rather than through artistic whim – unsurprising, since he’s described his sound as...

Single Review: The Script – ‘Rain’

July 26, 2017 | 0 Comments

After almost a year in hiatus and a few teasers from their upcoming fifth studio album, The Script have released Rain.  The accompanying music video employs the somber storytelling we normally hear from the Script, but goodness are you in for a treat when the beat kicks in. The song opens with lead vocalist Danny O’Donoghue’s...

The last time we caught Katie Melua live was several years ago when the singer performed an exceptional set at Hammersmith’s Eventim Apollo (or the Hammersmith Apollo as it was formerly known). Performing tracks from her then-new studio album The House, Melua delivered an exceptional set for fans and so it was with delight that...

Coinciding with the release of their autobiography, This Is the Noise That Keeps Me Awake, and their Rage and Rapture tour with seminal new-wave outfit Blondie, Garbage has released the dark, dystopian single No Horses.

Album Review: LANY – LANY

July 24, 2017 | 0 Comments

It’s pronounced lay-nee, and it is an acronym for Los Angeles New York. With a name implying transcontinental aspirations, you may well expect LANY to draw heavily upon the disparate musical styles that the United States is home to. A bit of LA’s glossy pop, a little New York gritty rock, a touch of the...

Sad core, mysterious and vintage beauty, Lana Del Rey, returns with her fourth album, Lust For Life. This highly anticipated album features the likes of The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky, Playboi Carti, Stevie Nicks and Sean Ono Lennon (who has an eerily familiar vocal tone to that of his father). Lana Del Rey delivers a striking...

EP Review: Coldplay – ‘Kaleidoscope’

July 22, 2017 | 0 Comments

I find the EP Kaleidoscope by Coldplay a little confusing. Is it a bridge between their album A Head Full Of Dreams (2015) and a more experimental sound to come, as heard in the track ALIENS? Kaleidoscope contains a mishmash of styles, from dream pop and post rock to world music and hip hop. It also...
