Beat Up by Late Night Legacy

3 months ago / 0 comments

2017 is finally over (almost). As we limp towards the new year, saddled with exam revision and any straggling unsubmitted essays, it might be hard to face the new year with anything but the weary resignation that we’ve had in our back pockets for the last twelve months. However, if … Read More

From Under Liquid Glass by Peace

3 months ago / 0 comments

Indie band Peace have recently released a new single. The band are known for their upbeat and positive sound- their last album was called ‘Happy People’.

Single Review: Too Much To Ask by Niall Horan

6 months ago / 0 comments

Niall Horan’s solo career thus far has been unpredictable, to say the least. His first single – the nostalgic and entirely lovely ‘This Town’ – was acoustic and simple, and set him up to move in a direction away from pop. This comes as no surprise to fans, who have … Read More

Single Review: Back to You by Louis Tomlinson ft. Bebe Rexha

8 months ago / 0 comments

It is my professional opinion that Louis Tomlinson stole the lyrics for his latest single, ‘Back To You’, from the Twitter accounts of his many dedicated fans. This is not a song written by a seasoned pop star, but is in fact the collaborative effort of millions of young women … Read More

Single Review: Praying by Kesha

8 months ago / 0 comments

When you think of Kesha, you think of glittery parties, glittery alcohol and glittery vomit. That’s not a slight to her — it was the image she put out when she released her first single, ‘TiK ToK’ back in 2010 when she still went by Ke$ha. Pop needs a party … Read More
