JUST LISTEN: RED RUM CLUB – VIBRATE

Just Listen: Bandit – Ice Cream

Bandit Ice Cream Words by Gary Lambert I’ll hold my hands up now and tell you that at first listen, I didn’t like Ice Cream by Bandit.  But when the second to fifth listens happen without you playing it because the song is stuck in your head and you’re singing along, then I had to admit … Continue reading

Just Listen: George Cosby – Lost On You

George Cosby Lost On You Words: Elena Katrina Sometimes you press play on a tack and you’re greeted with something so delightful, that something in your physicality changes for a while.

JUST LISTEN: BRISTON MARONEY – SINKIN’

Briston Maroney – Sinkin’ Words: Amy Butcher With only two weeks to go until his debut album Sunflower is released, Briston Maroney has delivered something fantastic in the last single Sinkin’ from the debut.

JUST LISTEN: jak Ivr – Still

jak Ivr – Still Words: Sammy Sadler When the news broke on Facebook that Llovers were disbanding, I was gutted.

Although you can often … Continue reading
