This is always an exciting time for Green Day fans such as myself. The build up to a new Green Day release is always met with a frenzied hope, but also a deep trepidation. This has been no different with the band’s thirteenth studio album, ‘Father of All Motherfuckers,’ their shortest and maybe most rock n roll of the lot.
‘Everything Else has Gone Wrong’ is a strong relaunch. It is perfect for the age we live in, unsure of what the future holds or even what the present is grasping. As with the band’s sound, maybe they don’t know where their music is taking them, but we can be sure, when everything else is going wrong, we’ll always have Bombay Bicycle Club to put things right.
The wait has been long, but the sophomore record of Norwegian pop punk band Sløtface is finally out. Since it has already been over a week since the release, and we have all had the chance to listen to it on loop, I think it is high time we dived deep into it. ‘Sorry for [...]
As the first few chords of 'Free Years Later' opened the show, we heard a girl behind us say "this is going to be some spiritual sh*t" and we felt it too. Kano took us to the endz, to church and back again blessing us with as much of his 15 years worth of material that he could cram into 2 hours.; he brought the garage, grime and gospel vibes.
You Think This Is Real World” is the opening track of Blossoms’ brand new album, Foolish Loving Spaces (Virgin EMI Records). Since their acclaimed self-titled debut in 2016, the band has gone on to become one of the most interesting alternative pop acts of the British scene. This ten tracks piece is the confirmation of their potential. The times in which Blossoms were a promising band are long gone; they are not the future, they are the present.
Halsey’s new album Manic recently came out and wow it’s an amazing rollercoaster ride; every song has a bit of a different genre and change of theme. I think this is really creative and it means that there is something for everyone. There are also a lot of different voices that we get to hear on the tracks, from Alanis Morrissette, famous for Ironic to SUGA a rapper from BTS. Each interlude not only shows the talents of Halsey but also the talents of the co-creators.
It’s that time of year again, “new year new me!” People have been celebrating and making new years resolutions. In January 2019 Ariel Posen put his stamp down on the new year by releasing the album 'How long'. Now he's celebrating its one year anniversary of success by hitting the road once again. So, what better time to do a review on the albums eponymous track?
Hands off Gretel are the ‘It’ band of the moment. They are playing everywhere around the UK and Europe, and every release is received with acclaim. Such was the case for their latest full-length album, I Want the World, which came out in April 2019. Then you would ask, “Why is it that you’re talking about one song off it now?” I will tell you why, because it just got a video, and it is awesome.
This song has a lot of different meanings for me. Personally, it reminds me of a lot of the people I see in university; they end up blocking out a lot of their responsibilities with clubbing. But this is only a temporary solution to the downs in life.
So When I got the go ahead to write up a review about a song and band of my choice, my brain was absolutely racked up with possibilities. “Which band am I going to fan boy about?”
