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...

One Republic took to social media to explain to fans that instead of albums, for now the band would simply be putting out singles as and when they felt like it. This new approach has yielded some impressive results thus far, and latest offering Rich Love sees the boys team up with Norwegian trio Seeb.  The Scandinavian...

Single Review: Kesha – ‘Praying’

July 21, 2017 | 0 Comments

Kesha has officially returned with her first solo track since 2013 – Praying.  The partying we’d normally associate with her has taken a back seat, allowing her vulnerable side to takeover. Written by Kesha, Ben Abraham and Ryan Lewis, her leading track from the upcoming album Rainbow is a cathartic one many believe to be directed towards her former producer,...

It’s been eight years since Starsailor’s last studio album, and fans couldn’t be happier with this teaser from the upcoming fifth instalment, All This Life. Listen to Your Heart has been described by lead singer and guitarist James Walsh as “an energetic, emotional song” – not that we’d expect anything less.

With the lead single, One of Us, from her 1995 début album Relish, Joan Osborne had a brief dalliance with mainstream success, but it wasn’t to convert into long-term name recognition for her. Since then Osborne has diligently continued releasing music, interspersing original works with covers of soul, R&B, and blues classics, earning herself a...

Since the demise of Oasis, the majority of people sided with the more genteel Team Noel, but on Wall Of Glass, the first taste of solo album As You Were, Liam is ready to put his questionable days in Beady Eye aside and once again return himself to the pedestal he has always thought we had him on....

Before listening to Power, I wouldn’t have been able to pick the women of Little Mix out of a line-up. As far as musical introductions go, Power – the fourth single from the quartet’s successful fourth album, Glory Days – makes a strong first impression. The funky opening riff certainly piqued my interest and, in...

Single Review: Foo Fighters – Run

Foo Fighters have had a calamitous year, frontman Dave Grohl breaking his leg meant the band had to cancel their career defining slot headlining the Pyramid Stage at last year’s Glastonbury festival. On latest single ‘Run’ though, it is evident that not even broken bones can shake the resolve of such an outstanding band.  The...

Most people would consider five years a long time but in the world of popular culture and pop music, it is positively an eternity. Yet, that is how long it has been since Britain’s Rita Ora released her début record, Ora. While she hasn’t exactly been out of the spotlight since then, Ora has recognised...

Having publicly denounced the more controversial phase of her career, Miley Cyrus is putting her money where her mouth is on latest single Malibu. Sadly, it’s not a cover of the much-loved Hole classic. For those familiar with Cyrus’ humble beginnings as a country singer-cum-child star, Malibu will be a welcome return to the Miley who lets...

Single Review: Muse – ‘Dig Down’

May 28, 2017 | 0 Comments

From the colours and font of the cover art, to the music video that pays homage to some classic cinematic moments, English three-piece Muse give more than a knowing wink and nod to the 1980s with their latest single, Dig Down. From the outset, a throbbing synth-rock riff propels Dig Down forth, with little musical...
