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. After releasing 3 studio records since her crowning achievement in the fifth season of the X factor series, the south-Korean-born songstress returns toward the end of 2016 with a disheartening involvement in radio airwave commercial...

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...

As if there is any need to justify new material from Metallica. The band have solidified themselves as metal icons for the better part of 30 years, with their tracks planting among the most anthemic music contributions of all time. Their newest single off their upcoming album Hardwired…to Self-Destruct is no different, going back to...

If there’s one thing that has defined the 7/27 era’s singles, it’s their variety. The mid-tempo electro-R&B of Work From Home and reggae vibe of All In My Head (Flex) were decidedly different from each other, despite a similar beat underneath them, and this doesn’t seem to be a trend that’s stopping with the latest...

October 5, 2016 | 2 Comments

With One Direction officially on hiatus and the members all pursuing their own paths, it was only a matter of time before Niall Horan began his own solo career. Fellow ex-band member Zayn Malik came out of the gates at full speed, redefining his image and tackling a variety of different genres, but Niall took...
