Just Listen: Psychedelic Porn Crumpets – Keen For Kick Ons?

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets – Keen For Kick Ons? Words: Nick Bewes  Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are my one of favourite new bands. Hailing from the land Down Under this four piece, Jack McEwan (lead vocals, guitar), Luke Parish (guitar), Danny Caddy (drums), Luke Reynolds (bass), have already got fans at BBC Radio, 6 Music and Radio … Continue reading

Just Listen: Raffer – The Media

Raffer – The Media Words: Daniel Burton RAFFER (aka Callum Rafferty), a DIY artist hailing from the countrysides of Kent, is slowly emerging into the limelight as a huge prospect in the Indie-Pop world. Releasing his first single, ‘Together’, a little over a year ago, he subsequently produced and released 3 more tracks during 2018. The … Continue reading

Just Watch: Lucy Rose – Conversations

Lucy Rose – Conversations Words: Sammy Sadler  Lucy Rose really is a gem isn’t she? I first started listening to her when she released the gorgeous ‘Work It Out’ way back in 2015 and the fact she’s about to release her fourth album ‘No Words Left’  is music to my ears – literally. The first … Continue reading

Just Listen: Hot Dreams – Stronger

Hot Dreams – Stronger Words: Nick Bewes  No messing about, straight to the point on this, the new single from Hot Dreams ‘Stronger‘ is a corker of a track. Debuted by Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, it builds slowly and then explodes with a chorus that will be embed itself in your memory. It’s an important track … Continue reading

Just Watch: Far Caspian – Finding My Way Home

Far Caspian – Finding My Way Home Words: Rachel Allen Utterly relaxed and dreamy was the place I was pulled into listening to Far Caspian and their single ‘Finding My Way Home’ from their debut EP ‘Between Days.’ From a hazy state to a triumphant one at the end of the song when the refrain … Continue reading

Just Listen: Calva Louise – Tug of War

Calva Louise – Tug Of War Words: Rachel Allen The gritty pop punk sound of Calva Louise jumped out at me when I heard their new single ‘Tug Of War’ off their debut album ‘Rhinoceros.’ The trio have really been making waves in the punk scene in the last 18 months and the new single … Continue reading

Just Watch: Isaac Gracie – Broken Wheel

Isaac Gracie – Broken Wheel Words: Rachel Allen ‘Broken wheel’ is a title I expected to hold a melancholy tune – but far be it for Isaac Gracie’s new release. Like his new video reflects, the light and feel good style of playing that wraps around his ironically pensive and sad lyric just seems to … Continue reading

Just Listen: Vanity Fairy – Loverman

Vanity Fairy – Loverman Words: Rachel Allen Prince and The Bee Gees are just some of the artists that spring to mind when first hearing the falsetto notes and echos of Vanity Fair’s Daisy Capri. She brings a unique and startlingly strange fascination to her vocal in her chilled out, catchy electro-pop track ‘Loverman.’ She … Continue reading

Just Listen: Psychedelic Porn Crumpets – My Friend’s A Liquid

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets – My Friend’s A Liquid Words: Nick Bewes Like so many artists, I first heard the brilliant Psychedelic Porn Crumpets on BBC Radio 6 Music, being played by Tom Ravenscroft. At twenty to six in the evening. Since that moment in the car, I’ve invested in their two albums, ‘High Visceral Part … Continue reading

Just Listen: GURU – Customer Helpline

GURU – Customer Helpline Words: Megan Berridge From its title, you might expect ‘Customer Helpline’ to be something of a cyber-age track — an ornament decorated with stale, robotic lyrics and tinselled with soulless beeps and chimes. But it’s not. I was drinking a lukewarm cuppa-instant-joe and listening to Simon and Garfunkel on a damp … Continue reading

Just Listen: Green Gardens – Change The Light

Green Gardens – Change The Light Words: Georgia-Mae Blackman What’s the danger of listening to new, interesting music? There’s no danger at all. Leeds art-pop band, Green Gardens are all sorts of fascinating, but beautiful. Newly released and highly anticipated single ‘Change The Lights’ is laced with funky riffs and breathtaking energy. The vocal ranges … Continue reading

Just Listen: The Pale White – End of Time

The Pale White – End of Time Words: Georgia-Mae Blackman Newcastle based band The Pale White have yet again delivered another perfect alternative tune, ‘End Of Time’. This is the second single to be released out of their upcoming EP, ‘Take Me To The Strange’ – and it’s a stunning, catchy song which encapsulates their … Continue reading

Just Listen: Birch – Labor Fruit

Birch – Labor Fruit Words: Julia Grantham When my good friend Michelle Birsky of New York synth-pop band Birch got in touch asking me to review her latest single ‘Labor Fruit’, I hesitated briefly, but only enough to decide it was time to bring this track back to Popped Music. The place where I had discovered … Continue reading

Just Listen: Kidsmoke – Rising Sun

Kidsmoke – Rising Sun Words: Rob Connor 6 Seconds! I timed it. The sleepy ethereal opening of Kidsmokes’ ‘Rising Sun’ is 6 seconds, before it hits you with a gut punch of a guitar riff and sets off like a whippet straight out of the traps. That 6 seconds is the only respite you’ll get on … Continue reading

Just Listen: Bessie Turner – Nino

Bessie Turner – Nino Words: Rachel Allen Bessie Turner has a distinct ability to weave an emotional story within a catchy slightly gritty guitar flavour layered in a slightly sweet vocal. Slightly but not slight, her recent track ‘Nino’ is flavoured in just this way, sprinkled with the magic of Richard Woodcraft, who won a … Continue reading
