‘Music From Before The Storm’ by Daughter

1 year ago / 0 comments

Daughter’s latest release, Music from Before the Storm, is quite different to their 2016 album Not to Disappear. This is because this album was actually written as the soundtrack to the video game, ‘Life is strange: Before the storm’. This is an interesting move for the folk/indie band.

‘Freudian’ by Daniel Caesar

1 year ago / 0 comments

The second hand on your clock ticks slowly, the setting sun lingers greedily on the horizon, the receding pools of daylight cling to existence; all the while Daniel Caesar’s Freudian spins, plays, reverberates in the background. An album that seems to extend effortlessly into eternity, Freudian barely ever exceeds walking … Read More

All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell by Pvris

1 year ago / 0 comments

When it comes to being instantly recognisable, there aren’t many bands that can match Pvris, whether that’s in regards to their effortlessly chic black and white aesthetic, or their highly cultivated sound. However, in the three years since the release of their debut album White Noise, the Massachusetts trio have … Read More

1 year ago / 0 comments

The first line that Kesha sings on ‘Rainbow’ is “I got too many people I got left to prove wrong.” And yet, the album suggests that she knows she owes nothing to anyone – in ‘Hymn’ she asserts “don’t need no forgiveness”, and in ‘Let ‘Em Talk’ she cries out … Read More

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

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

2 years 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
