Lust For Life by Lana Del Rey

1 year ago / 0 comments

If Lust for Life’s album cover is anything to go by, it appears Lana Del Rey has finally chirped up after three albums of pensive ballads, downcast beats and sad, sad girls – or so it first appears… There’s a distinct air of something unfamiliar from the opening song, ‘Love’, … Read More

‘Be Nice’ EP by Milk Teeth

1 year ago / 0 comments

Milk Teeth’s debut album ‘Vile Child’ was an undeniable highlight of 2016’s musical outputs. It was uncompromising and energetic, intelligent and almost alarmingly honest. What their new EP ‘Be Nice’ suggests is that, back then, they’d barely even gotten started. This latest release is a diverse yet cohesive collection, showing … Read More

Live for the Moment by The Sherlocks

1 year ago / 0 comments

The Sherlocks are not the most distinctive of bands – if I heard one of their songs in public, I’d probably recognise it, but I wouldn’t be able to tell you it’s them – but they definitely have the potential to become more so. Live for the Moment is their … Read More

Flower Boy by Tyler, The Creator

1 year ago / 0 comments

On his latest album Tyler, the Creator showcases a ridiculous amount of talent as a rapper, lyricist and producer. This is easily one of the finest hip hop albums of the year. For better or worse Tyler, the Creator has always been an individual. Even as a member of the … Read More

Emerging Adulthood by Dan Croll

1 year ago / 0 comments

It seems it has been a less than easy three years since the release of Dan Croll’s debut album. He recently tweeted that a couple of years ago he was uncertain if he would ever make another record. Despite Croll’s initial success with support tours alongside Imagine Dragons and Bastille, … Read More

‘Melodrama’ by Lorde

1 year ago / 0 comments

If there were an album that was made to be relatable to the average uni student, it would be Lorde’s latest album, Melodrama. You could go through a list of millennial tropes and they’d all be there — messy breakup song? Check. Party song? Check. Drug use? Check. Hook ups? … Read More

Green Twins by Nick Hakim

1 year ago / 0 comments

It has been a long and exciting wait for Nick Hakim’s debut album Green Twins to drop. The Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter last graced us with his EPs, Where Will We Go Pt.1 & Pt.2, back in 2014, and since then there has been little to whet the appetites of his fans. … Read More

Single Review: Strip That Down by Liam Payne

1 year ago / 0 comments

It’s been a busy week for One Direction fans- and this is whilst the band are on hiatus. Liam Payne is the last member of 1D to release solo material, and the one whose new direction is perhaps the most surprising. He’s gone for r&b influenced pop, collaborating with the … Read More

Harry Styles by Harry Styles

1 year ago / 0 comments

After Zayn, it’s Harry’s turn. The highly anticipated solo debut, Harry Styles, has finally been released and it isn’t disappointing. Growing up with artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd, I have always been surrounded by good music. But when I started my teenage years I fell … Read More

This Old Dog by Mac Demarco

1 year ago / 0 comments

Mac is back. But it’s definitely not bigger than ever. He has spent his time developing a real caricature of himself, letting his musical outputs slide. His lack of hygiene, dry humour, goofy style and give-a-fuck stoner attitude has allowed his already healthy adolescent following to grow. He’s done interviews … Read More
