JANOS – Zero

Fair play JANOS, verified summer vibes from this track. Writing this review at midnight in my cold and dreary Preston flat but picturing a pool party. Contrast to its dreamy disposition, the song describes the frustration of longing to change your circumstances but feeling restricted by the negativity of others around us. ‘I don’t want […]

Wolfpeake – Broke

I think it’s always easy with up-and-coming bands to compare and contrast their sound to that of more established bands in the industry. But with Wolfpeake, that would be a bit of an insult. The North-West four-piece are already equipped with eclectic festival bangers and their newest single ‘Broke’ is no exception. Armed with a […]

Kasador

Kasador is a band that originates from Canada and perches firmly on the indie rock/ alternative rock / rock pop genres. Like a lot of groups, they were faced with the re-evaluation of their identity after the departure of a band member. I hope one of their evaluations concluded that they have a prepossessing talent […]

Young Clancy – All U Need

The opening track “All U Need” begins with the intriguing choice of a round of applause, accompanied with audio tones that echo phone ringtones. This song would definitely fit well on a chill or relaxation playlist. It doesn’t try too hard – it doesn’t have to – the encompassing, silky vocals drew me in immediately. […]

Laura Pergolizzi ( L.P) @ Observatory (San Diego)

Laura Pergolizzi, better known as her stage name LP, played a sold out show at The Observatory in San Diego, CA with fans outside still trying to score some tickets. After seeing the show, I now know why. LP is one of those artists that  you will have wished you had the chance to see […]

The Fame – Cherry Lipstick

Wearing your influences on your sleeve can be something of a double-edged sword. Having a clear through-line between your sound and the people you aspire to be like can make you easily accessible to a certain audience. But it also leaves you open to the usual grumbling of “yeah, but they’re not as good”. So […]

Gold – JonoJosh

At first this track sounds quite scary with shrill high pitched notes which echo in your mind and grind right through your ears, but suddenly we are greeted by a softer voice which I wasn’t imagining to go with the song. It unwraps a mysterious vortex which you then enter. The isolated lyrical delivery then […]

Paper Jackets – Trigger

I wish I had discovered this band sooner. With vocals and music reminiscent of the band ‘Lawson’ and genres extending from alternative rock to pop – I think there is definitely a place in the industry for this 6-piece band. There are plenty of time lapse shots in the music video, but none that change […]

For US singer/songwriter Akira there was always a desire to immerse himself within the realm of entertainment, inspired by Shakira (witness his name – a play on hers) his first love was dance where he would spend endless hours learning choreography and performing for school peers. He says: ‘it was around the age of 13 […]
