It appears that despite being the age of 71, Debbie Harry remains coolest of the cool and ultimate, all-round goddess. Always in keeping with the zeitgeist and ready to embrace contemporary style, Blondie never shies away from a quirky collaboration. This latest union takes form in the track ‘Long Time’ … Read More

Things I’ve Never Said by Frances

1 year ago / 0 comments

A pretty nice way to unwind after an essay I guess – or equally as nice to listen to whilst procrastinating writing an essay… She reminds of a younger, female Tom Odell with her incredible voice and simplistic tunes. Frances produces sweetheart melodies perfect for a dusk listen and before … Read More

I have to admit, it took me a couple of listens of Laura Marling’s, the twenty seven year old folk singer-songwriter and all round babe, latest album, Semper Femina, to really get my head around it. I had flashbacks to a fifteen year old me turning aghast from Marling’s third … Read More

After the lengthy 4-year break between his 2012 release Channel Orange and follow-up albums Endless and Blonde in 2016, it seems Frank Ocean’s been busy. In February, he featured on Calvin Harris’ ‘Slide’, and a month later he drops ‘Chanel’. Ocean’s obsession with the idea of duality (“I got twoooo … Read More

This is the one album I have been baiting my breath for. With Stormzy vanishing without a trace from social media after being so interactive with his fans, I had no idea what to expect. Then out of the silence burst ominous billboards appearing around London, an advert during the … Read More
