Just Listen: Cassia – Replica

Cassia – Replica Words by Gary Lambert Well it seems that with the release of ‘Replica’, we have now reached the point where a band from northern England can drop a track that sounds like debut album era Vampire Weekend covering Musical Youth’s classic ‘Pass The Dutchie’. This could be one of the high points … Continue reading

Just Listen: Spinn – Believe It or Not

Spinn – Believe It or Not Words by Gary Lambert It seems like whilst they’ve been in the studio recording their debut album Spinn have been doing some scientific experiments. Believe It or Not is undoubtedly what occurs if you splice the DNA of The La’s jangly guitar sound with the joyful pop production of … Continue reading

Live Review: Gerry Cinnamon, Liverpool

Gerry Cinnamon, Liverpool Guild of Students, 23 March 2019 Words by Gary Lambert It is the ethos of Popped Music to write about music that we love and would recommend to people. As our editor put it to me one day “you wouldn’t write a cook book including food you didn’t like”. It was with … Continue reading

Just Listen: Life At The Arcade – Tabloids

Life at the Arcade – Tabloids Words by Gary Lambert Life at the Arcade have been making steady headway for a while now on the live scene across the country. Their latest release, Tabloids, captures their live sound perfectly as they mix anthemic songwriting with a very accessible, accessible guitar sound. Despite being Liverpool lads, … Continue reading

Popped Round-up March 2019

Popped Round-up March 2019 Words: Daniel Burton and Gary Lambert !Editor’s Pick! Latenight Honeymoon – Lost on You It seems that the guys at Latenight Honeymoon have been working down the quarry of summer and have been able to hack out a piece of sunshine that is reminiscent of the early releases from Fickle Friends … Continue reading

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

Album Review: Anteros – When We Land

Anteros – When We Land Words by Gary Lambert Now this is an album I have waited quite some time to listen to. In fact, ever since I heard Drunk for the first time, I’ve loved Anteros – and especially loved that song. It was with considerable disappointment that I saw Drunk had been left … 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

Live Review: Scarlet, Manchester

Scarlet with Oranje and Dollie Demi, YES Basement, 15 March 2019 Words and Photos: Gary Lambert We all love new experiences. Well new experiences within reason, and Scarlet’s gig at Manchester’s YES Basement was absolutely filled with them. Firstly, it was the first time I had ever gone to see Scarlet performing outside of Liverpool; … 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
