Alfa Mist @ Gorilla

Meticulously crafted emotional dramatic jazz lashed with classical soundtrack / hip-hop elements to create great urban modern yet timeless soundscapes. In many too many words a description of what you can expect from Newham’s melancholy mastermind, though language was unnecessary when Alfa plonked into his seat at the keys, all instruments concentric upon his sturdy […]

Sticky Fingers @ The O2 Ritz Manchester

Sticky Fingers brought in a crowd in Manchester, after receiving a huge following over here not just in Australia. These talented artists are performing perfectionists with topless keyboard players, to cane waving singers, they will catch your eye and they’ll do it in style.

True Vibenation (supporting Sticky Fingers) @ The O2 Ritz Manchester

True Vibenation were exceptional openers, the Australian trio brought their amazing rhythmic jams to the north. They were not only powerful in their presence but they invented a whole new dance move whilst singing, playing multiple instruments and maintaining eye contact. It sounds mad and it was.

Drenge @ The O2 Ritz Manchester

I first saw Drenge at Reading & Leeds in 2013. After reading about them a couple of weeks before in NME, I popped their name into YouTube and ran through a few of their songs. They had this muddy, fast sound polluted with elements of garage and grunge. it was infectious. I thought, ‘this is […]

DMA’s @ Cambridge Corn Exchange

Pleasant surprise. Double doors flung open as bodies rush for quick cigarettes. A gratifying wall of sound washes over my body and I bless the high ceilings of the Corn Exchange, witnessing chords melt into the vast space above my head. I had no previous knowledge of DMA’s except for a slapdash description of their […]

Ben Howard @ Brixton Academy

It’s not often an artist can give you the sensation of an ever-increasing descent into the depths of the ocean, or being released from an airlock into the abyss of space. One could argue that Ben Howard feels a duty to produce this effect, with multi-layered ambience and dense textural instrumentation coupled with seamless transitioning […]

Blossoms @ Victoria Warehouse

It was a pleasant surprise to learn I had got a guest list pass for a completely sold out gig. I can honestly say Blossoms as a whole were so friendly and welcoming.  I walked straight in to the dressing room and Josh was steaming his outfit for the night. “Proper charity shop style.” The […]

Kaleb Mckane @ Manchester Academy 3

This was such an unusual experience, I had no idea what to expect from a supporting act but I was instantly blown away by these guys. The band named after front man Kaleb, was insane. His powerful voice rang through the room, it was like David Bowie, literally this young man had a voice like […]
