EP Review: Guy Sebastian – Part 1

December 15, 2016 | 0 Comments

With seven albums under his belt and a stint as Australia’s Eurovision representative in 2015, it makes perfect sense for Guy Sebastian to experiment with his style in 2016. And in fact, that’s what he does on Part 1; his pop and R&B sensibilities find themselves twisted in new directions here, in multiple ways across...

EP Review: Janet Devlin – Little Lights

December 14, 2016 | 0 Comments

Last year, Janet Devlin offered a stunning Christmas EP that shed all kinds of expectations for the holidays and remained genuinely enjoyable despite the oversaturation of the holiday. For 2016, Devlin decided to continue the tradition and release another Christmas EP, but with a twist. Rather than feeling trite or overbearing, however, she takes on...

Single Review: Noah Cyrus – ‘Make Me (Cry)’

November 30, 2016 | 0 Comments

It must be intimidating to start a music career as the younger sister of Miley Cyrus. She’s such a provocative, modern artists, that it’s easy to imagine that Noah Cyrus felt a need to try and do something completely different to her older sister’s pop work, which is sort of what she’s done with Make...

John Mayer’s career is kind of fascinating, because it follows a very different direction to most successful artists’. Many artists begin making their most oblique and difficult music, and then gradually move towards more accessible styles before finding success. Mayer is different, in that his first album of pop-rock was hugely successful (Your Body is...

Charli XCX started 2016 with a bang on her Vroom Vroom EP, teaming up with a number of PC Music artists—most notably the producer SOPHIE, who worked on the entire EP—to release something explosive, abrasive and in a pop style completely different from what she’d done on Sucker in 2014. Strangely enough, After The Afterparty...

The latest single from the 2013 Australian X-Factor winner Dami Im, could be best described as an indecisive, bittersweet endeavour.

Single Review: Train – ‘Play that Song’

October 22, 2016 | 0 Comments

At this point, most people have made up their mind about Train. They are one of the most divisive bands around, adored by their loving fans, and despised in critical and alternative circles. Play that Song is unlikely to change either of these group’s minds, and as such, there’s something quite respectable about Train continuing...

Single Review: John Legend – ‘Love Me Now’

October 21, 2016 | 0 Comments

Amongst all the magnificent future-R&B stars that exist today, John Legend has always seemed a bit conservative. His vocal chords are incredible, and his production has always been smooth (albeit sometimes too much so), but he has never had that special “something” that allows an artist to break into the mainstream. However, mainstream success is...
