SXSW With: Boy Azooga

Boy Azooga Words and Photos: Elena Katrina Admittedly, I’d only heard a handful of Boy Azooga tracks prior to SXSW but enough to know that he was a key part of my coverage for 2019, and he was certainly jostling for my attention amongst a seriously strong UK thing of acts travelling over this year. … Continue reading

Interview: Dollie Demi

Dollie Demi Words and Photographs: Gary Lambert Imagine in the moments before Simon Fuller got the Spice Girls to sign on the dotted line, Geri Halliwell was kicked out of the band and they were then taught to play their own instruments on dirty rock numbers. The result of this would be Dollie Demi. Admittedly … Continue reading

SXSW With: The Amazons

The Amazons Words & Photos: Elena Katrina Almost 3 years ago The Amazons played their first Liverpool show and we were there to grab them, take them off for a beer and to our then photographer Gaz’s house to play table football, while Gary questioned them for an interview. A lot has happened for The … Continue reading

SXSW With: Fatherson

Fatherson Words and photos: Elena Katrina When I first moved to Liverpool one of the first visiting bands to the city centre who I interviewed was Fatherson. Since then I’ve enjoyed a fair few shows, cried along to a few songs and thoroughly enjoyed all that they were about. It was, therefore, a no-brainier for … Continue reading

SXSW With: The Ninth Wave

The Ninth Wave Words by Elena Katrina Having played a intimidatingly good show at The British Music Embassy the previous evening, I was a little nervous to meet and interview The Ninth Wave. I’m just not cool enough to deal with their level of interesting. However, having (hopefully) broken the ice  by challenging them to … Continue reading

SXSW With: Lucia

Lucia Words by Elena Katrina I’ve been a fan of Lucia for a while now and missed them when they played SX last year. I then made it my mission to see them live and did this by witnessing a terrifyingly assured show at The Great Escape. I mean, frontwoman Lucia is terrifying on stage … Continue reading

SXSW With: Cassia

Cassia Words by Elena Katrina I first saw Cassia play around 2 and a half years ago for Off The Record festival in Manchester. They were nervous, to say the least and gave a performance that only hinted at what was to come. Since then they’re built up an army of fans and have an … Continue reading

SXSW With: Island

Island Words: Elena Katrina Photo: Thibaut De Lestré I’ve been a fan of Island for a while and I’ve had the pleasure of hanging with them before but this is our first interview – madness right? Right! Maybe it’s the fact they already “know” me or maybe it’s all the free alcohol but this turns … Continue reading

SXSW With: Anteros

Words and Photos: Elena Katrina Sitting at Vevo House – the venue which is about to become our most used venue to hang with bands – I get to meet Anteros… finally. It’s been a good few years since I first saw them live, yet somehow it’s taken until now to finally meet them. Hailing … Continue reading

Interview: The Hunna

The Hunna Words: Daniel Burton Rapidly becoming one of the biggest indie rocker outfits on the scene at the moment, The Hunna are heading back out on tour and are ready to take 2019 by the scruff of its neck. Ahead of their upcoming UK and European tour, Popped were able to get a few … Continue reading

Interview: Ten Tonnes

TEN TONNES Words & Photos: Gary Lambert Ten Tonnes has been a favourite of Popped Music for quite some time, so getting an interview with him in the dressing room of Manchester’s Deaf Institute brought about quite a bit of friendly jealousy and gifs of fist bumps from the team. After meeting him, I can … Continue reading

Interview: The Silver Field

The Silver Field Words: Julia Grantham As I sat, quietly, sipping my one alcohol drink for the evening; I felt calm as I waited for Coral Rose of new band The Silver Field to walk into the bar and meet me. The evening was a dark, cold, Sunday night in central York and the venue … Continue reading

Interview: Indigo Velvet

 Indigo Velvet Words: Sammy Sadler I caught Indigo Velvet at Kendal Calling last year and I’ve been a fan of their vibrant, sunkissed indie-pop ever since. They are quite literally what I would call “the perfect festival band” – at Kendal Calling the rain started to pour and they brought so much sparkle and infectious energy … Continue reading

Interview: Bloxx

Bloxx Words: Daniel Burton Photography: Gary Lambert The last time I saw Bloxx they were in the middle of putting on a sensational performance in a barn in the middle of the countryside. It wasn’t an off-the-cuff thing, but a cracker of a set at 110 Above Festival. Even in the short time since then … Continue reading

Our Girl Interview

Our Girl Words: Elena Katrina & Gary Lambert  Photos: Gary Lambert The last time Popped Music were with Our Girl it was in the warm (but breezy) Texan sunshine of SXSW. Things had changed though over the last six months as we caught up again outside a bar in Liverpool on a chilly Sunday evening. … Continue reading
