VANCE JOY / LIKE GOLD

It sometimes really doesn’t seem fair to even associate a particular artist with one song. When it comes to Australian singer songwriter Vance Joy, it’d be so easy to say something dumb like “Christ, I thought he disappeared after Riptide”, and ok you’d have a point that the name Vance Joy has been scarce since…

FRANZ FERDINAND / ALWAYS ASCENDING

In 2013, indie juggernauts Franz Ferdinand released what became for many, or at least myself, the album of the year with ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action’. They rewrote the rule book on indie pop music and managed to create an album that had wall to wall brilliance as each track stood out as lead…

SMERZ / HALF LIFE

It was at this years Lost Village festival that we discovered the wonder of Smerz. We were lucky enough to catch them live (you can find the exclusive gig review here) and fell in love with their minimal yet exciting electro flavour. Following the performance, we got a hold of their 2016 album ‘Okey’ which is…

WOLF ALICE / BEAUTIFULLY UNCONVENTIONAL

Wolf Alice, in perfectly consistent form, continue to stamp their mark on 2017 as the campaign towards the release of their upcoming album ‘Visions Of A Life’ grows stronger, more exciting and reassures the point that their debut success was not a fluke. Wolf Alice have released three singles ahead of the new LP which is set…

30 SECONDS TO MARS / WALK ON WATER

Jared Leto and his band, 30 Seconds To Mars have unveiled, in the past few hours, a patriotic, hopeful and extremely grand ode to the USA and the optimism of a better future. ‘Walk On Water’ has a huge sound despite minimalist instrumentation considering it’s a creation by 30 Seconds To Mars and yet its…

ARCADE FIRE / EVERYTHING NOW

So it’s common knowledge that one of the biggest bands on the planet, most respected outfits in music today and one of the most eclectic and experimentally expressive forces in artistry Arcade Fire have returned and are set to release their fifth studio album since their debut back in 2004. ‘Everything Now’ is scheduled for…

THE DRUMS / MIRROR

As Brooklyn indie popsters The Drums get ready to unleash their fourth studio record ‘Abysmal Thoughts’ they’ve released a brand new track from the album, just today, called ‘Mirrors’ and it’s all the confirmation we needed to prove that despite recent on goings with the band, the signature sound and style has remained and hangs together just…

FOO FIGHTERS / RUN

As if out of nowhere, just like that, with no premeditation, self indulgent hype or endless teasers and promos, one of the biggest bands in the world have returned to release new music for the first time since 2015 and all in perfect time as they embark soon on a summer full of festivals, plus the song…

LCD SOUNDSYSTEM / CALL THE POLICE

The music world was buzzing all last night as news broke yesterday that two brand new tracks by the returning LCD Soundsystem and James Murphy had announced that the new material would sweep the globe gradually and the news of this imminent event did just the same. Every music publication and radio station in the…

NIALL HORAN / SLOW HANDS

“We spiiiiiiiiiiiies, we slow hands, put the weights around yourself”. Nope, it’s not the classic Interpol track, it’s actually another brand new release by a One Direction alumni and it’s Irish chappy Niall Horan as he’s unveiled brand new single ‘Slow Hands’ and not to say there’s any rivalry between the ex One Direction lads,…

PARAMORE / TOLD YOU SO

It doesn’t seem two minutes since we celebrated the return of Paramore and specifically the release of their come back single ‘Hard Times’ and normally we may wait it out and review the hell out of the album once it was ready top drop, but I’m afraid the 12th of May is just that little bit…
