ALBUM: Dilly Dally ‘Sore’

Perhaps it’s due to the strength of their personal connection that’s existed since high school days, or perhaps it’s due to their sheer talent (though it’s no doubt down to both) that Dilly Dally (Katie Monks and Liz Ball) have…

ALBUM: Foals ‘What Went Down’

Rating: It’s fair to say that each Foals album has had a huge impact on UK music. Although the last record was received by mixed reviews, What Went Down guarantees a more supporting response and a title of being their…

ALBUM: Royal Headache ‘High’

Hailing from Sydney, Royal Headache graced the land with their self-titled debut back in 2011. After a long wait, they’re back with their follow-up, which comes in the form of High. It’s soon clear that this album means business from…

ALBUM: Love Amongst Ruin – ‘Lose Your Way’

Rating: An abrupt departure from a band as talented and well-known as Placebo would’ve broken a lesser man, but Steve Hewitt – who co-wrote and played drums on the band’s first 5 albums – proved his own creativity was just…

ALBUM: Heyrocco ‘Teenage Movie Soundtrack’

Teenage Movie Soundtrack is the perfect title for Heyrocco’s debut album, as it certainly would not sound out of place as the soundscape to a ’90s indie rom-com. It can often be argued that ’90s-deriving grunge bands are nothing short…

ALBUM: Palma Violets ‘Danger In The Club’

Rating: For the past two years, London based quartet Palma Violets have seemingly spent their time convincing the music world that raucous indie boy pop is far from dead. With the release of their highly anticipated follow up album, Danger In…

EP: Scarlet ‘Fishes’

Rating: Fishes. The debut EP from Jessie Robinson’s alt-pop brainchild Scarlet. It’s quite simply majestically dark alt-pop at it’s pulsy and vibrant best. The EPs opener is also its lead single ‘Anyway’. The track was played by BBC Radio 6 Music in the wake of it’s release…

ALBUM: Say Lou Lou ‘Lucid Dreaming’

Rating: Over the last few years, Scandinavian duo Say Lou Lou have been steadily crafting a reputation for making classy, considered pop music. With a string of seductive singles and collaborations with the likes of Chet Faker, the band have teased their…

ALBUM: Moon King ‘Secret Life’

Rating: Dream-Pop duo Moon King have followed up their shimmering EPs with the long awaited full length album, Secret Life. The recording project of Tornoto Natives Daniel Woodhead (brother of Doldrums’ Airick) and Maddie Wilde have managed to accomplish a…
