Just Watch: Joseph J Jones – The Video

Joseph J Jones Words: Elena Katrina You have no idea where this song, The Video, will take you when it first begins, it’s slow dance toward you, teases your senses and allows Joseph J Jones‘ superb vocal to take the spotlight. This is a grower of a tune, it suckers you in after a few … Continue reading

Festival Review: X&Y Part 2

X&Y Part 2 Words: Gary Lambert The second leg of X&Y Festival started with blue skies, an instant vibe and had this writer contemplating “what makes a festival”. I will admit it was rather profound for a Friday evening, but when you’ve got a few hundred people in and around a giant greenhouse having a … Continue reading

Just Watch: Honeyblood – Ready For The Magic

Honeyblood Words: Gary Feeney One of the finest acts to emerge from Glasgow in recent times, Honeyblood are back with Ready for the Magic, the first single from their long-awaited second album Babes Never Die, and on this evidence they’ve returned even better (and louder) than before. A distinctly heavier song than anything from their … Continue reading

Just Listen: Syd Arthur – Sun Rays

Syd Arthur Words:  Georgia-Mae Blackman The four British psych rockers Syd Arthur take an opportunity and grab it fast to release their new single Sun Rays. With a strong start, a cheerful and sunny (pardon the pun!) intro gets me instantly liking Sun Rays. I found that they have have similar qualities to Tame Impala, … Continue reading

Album Review: Viola Beach – Viola Beach

Viola Beach Released 29th July 2016 Words: Eliza Laben Earlier this year all four members of indie-rock group Viola Beach, along with their manager Craig Tarry, tragically passed away in a car crash in Sweden.

Just Watch: Hinds – Warts

Hinds Words: Georgia-Mae Blackman The phenomenal Spanish group of four reveal their technicolour and surreal video for their new single Warts, the girl group were formed in 2011 and have always showed their passion within the indie pop/rock scene. The happy tune is the complete opposite to the meaning of the song – a disheartened … Continue reading

Festival Review: Barn On The Farm

Barn On The Farm 1-2 July 2016 Words: Elena Katrina I started this blog the same year that Barn On The Farm first started. Yes, that long ago. I believe they started it for their mates and I started this just for something to do and to keep my love of new music alive. So … Continue reading

EP Review: The Van T’s – A Coming Of Age

The Van T’s Words: Gary Feeney I first heard the Van T’s in passing round about a year ago, probably around the time of the release of their debut E.P, Laguna Babe, and made a mental note to have a proper listen to them as I quite like that brief aural glimpse. As often happens … Continue reading

Just Listen: The Parrots – No Me Gustas, Te Quiero

The Parrots Words: Nick Jacques Hailing from Madrid, Spain The Parrots are a threesome who deliver glorious sludgy garage rock in unashamed fashion. Their new single No Me Gustas, Te Quiero (translating to You Don’t Like Me, I Love You) reminds me of Falmouth’s finest the Black Tambourines jamming with the Pixies after a late … Continue reading


Just Listen: Edges – Walk Away

Edges Words: Georgia-Mae Blackman In a song that holds so much emotion and passion, the Berlin based singer-songwriter, Edges, produces a track which really tugs at my heart strings. Walk Away starts with a small rhythmic pluck at an acoustic guitar but this carries on throughout the song, it’s raw, beautiful and so serene. This … Continue reading

Just Listen: White – Step Up

White Words: Gary Feeney Following the joyous disco-pop of their last single Fight The Feeling, White’s latest offering, Step Up, is a shock to the senses. Built around a pulsating electronic beat, which, sounds more complex the more you listen to it, there’s a distinctly dark and menacing edge to the track: not just because … Continue reading

Just Listen: The Telermen – Trust You

The Telermen Words: Gary Feeney As we’ve noted before on Popped, there’s a seemingly endless procession of good bands emerging in and around Glasgow these days and amongst the latest to appear is four-piece the Telermen, featuring one Dillon Squire, Son of Stone Roses legend, John. Trust You, the lead single from the band’s debut … Continue reading
