Just Listen: Flyte – White Roses

Flyte – White Roses Words: Clare Hingley  White Roses is the first single of the year for Flyte and it possesses an extraordinary chilled melody from start to finish.

Popped Round Up July 2019

The Round Up July 2019 Words: Daniel Burton Editor’s Pick Antidote – Life At The Arcade  After each of LATA’s releases I almost selfishly wish that it’s their last because I,  somewhat foolishly,  think that the next cannot get any better, but time and time again they pull it off and produce some absolutely top-class … Continue reading

Kashmere – Lucid Words: Clare Hingley Stockport quartet Kashmere are back with a bang and they have come along way from their debut track in 2016 with Blow Your Mind.

Just Watch: Swim Deep – To Feel Good

Swim Deep – To Feel Good Words: Sammy Sadler I’m a big fan of Swim Deep and have been for what feels like forever now.
