Playing Pretend: Few Faces

Pop Punk. A lot of people have their own opinions on who and what defines this genre. People want to protect and defend it and some even criticize bands and artists for not “staying true” to what they think the genre should be and sound like. However, shouldn’t we be praising and encouraging new bands... Continue Reading →

Reviewed John Mayer – Sob Rock

Rating - 2/5 John Mayer is an extremely polarising figure in the musical world, so let me caveat this review by saying that I’m unashamedly a huge fan of the majority of his work. He’s a fantastic songwriter with a lot in the bag when it comes to guitar heroics and up to this point,... Continue Reading →

Reviewed – Noprism – Order

Rating - 3/5 Twitter: https://twitter.com/thisisnoprism Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thisisnoprism Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thisisnoprism/ Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/thisisnoprism Noprism, the synthwave four piece from Newcastle take us back to the heady days of Duran Duran and Human League with aplomb.

Reviewed – Crazy Arm – Fear Up

Rating - 3.5/5 The latest single from the new album “Dark Hands, Thunderbolts” Crazy Arm delivers us Fear Up. It’s a punk western romp that blends Dropkick Murphys and Ennio Morricone. I’ll bet you didn’t know you needed that but you do. Coming from a dark enough place, the name of the single is actually... Continue Reading →

Reviewed – Greysha – Aspirin

Rating - 4/5 Aspirin, the latest single by Greysha, sees the Shropshire based singer bring a darkly compelling track that makes you want to listen more than once. It's got a mid-nineties trip hop vibe that’s hard not to love, not only in it's nostalgia but also the fact that it's well done. Not a... Continue Reading →
