Just Listen: Honey Lung – Sophomore

Honey Lung Words: Rebecca Worthington Following the launch show earlier last week at Camden Assembly, hotly-tipped  Londoners Honey Lung have released their third single Sophomore and it’s a scuzzy explosion of shoegaze-grunge riffs, with a heavy pop-punk influence. Unlike last release Something, which, we first discovered at Popped Music through Flying Vinyl, Sophomore verges into … Continue reading

Just Watch Alex Hulme – Family Tree

Alex Hulme Words: Gary Lambert Alex Hulme’s latest release, Family Tree, has an oxymoronic feel to it. Throughout the three minutes the verses feel both sparse and modern, yet the chorus manages to build into a deep, textured blast which has the structure of very traditional folk music, possibly even religious, but with the power … Continue reading
