JUST LISTEN: EADES – PRESENT IN THE MOMENT

Eades – Present in the Moment Words: Amy Butcher Gut punching you as soon as the track starts, Eades’ Present In the Moment is a modern post-punk song; full of high energy, fast paced guitar riffs and a distorted, lo-fi quality that ties the whole thing together. Hailing from Leeds, the quintet have already developed … Continue reading

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. Whether it’s the ferocious guitar melodies, tight drums beats or Maroney’s intoxicating vocals, it’s the perfect sunshine pop song. I can … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: jak Ivr – Still

jak Ivr – Still Words: Sammy Sadler When the news broke on Facebook that Llovers were disbanding, I was gutted. I’d become somewhat of a big fan having seen the indie-pop Teessiders live numerous times and I even own two of their band t-shirts. Doesn’t get much more serious than that. Although you can often … Continue reading

Just Listen: Bloxx – Everything I’ve Ever Learned

Bloxx Everything I’ve Ever Learned Words: Gary Lambert 13Releasing a debut album in 2020 was a bit of a cursed move, but rather than sit around waiting for the real-life restart, Bloxx have got busy with a new release.  And it’s a cracker – and shows how much Bloxx have progressed as a band since … Continue reading

Just Watch: feeo – End Song

Just Watch : feeo – End Song   A few thoughts spring to mind when I listen to ‘End Song’ by feeo; phenomenal production, sweet soulful harmonies and addictive jazz chords. This is my first taste of the Oxford songwriter and producer, and blimey she’s made an impression. The track takes you on a journey … Continue reading

Just Watch: VALA – It’s Alright When You’re Falling

VALA It’s Alright When You’re Falling  Words: Amy Butcher VALA’s ‘t’s Alright When You’re Falling is a harmonious final instalment to their ‘Swimming Kit’ EP, and much similar to the other two songs from the EP, it has a refreshing twist on the Manchester band’s sound we know and love. Compared to their older singles, these … Continue reading

Just Listen: Eliza Shaddad – Blossom

Eliza Shaddad Blossom Words: Elena Katrina The latest release from the wonderfully talented Eliza Shaddad is Blossom and my gosh is it somewhat a swoon-worthy track. It makes me envisage a warm day, trees gently swaying in the breeze, blossom falling gently from them as I walk down a street. It’s an entirely romantic scene, … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: YONAKA – Ordinary

YONAKA- Ordinary Words: Sammy Sadler Well, well, well, it’s been a little while since I’ve written a single review and what a track to come back to. Here at Popped we’ve had our eyes on YONAKA for what feels like ages and their new track Ordinary demonstrates that we’ve been fans for the right reason. … Continue reading

Just Listen: Girl In Red – Serotonin

Girl In Red Serotonin Words: Amy Butcher When you first listen to ‘Serotonin’ by Girl In Red a.k.a.

Just Listen: Courting – Grand National

Courting Grand National Words: Gary Lambert With their latest release, Grand National, Courting have once again proven themselves to be one of the most exciting young bands in the UK.

Just Listen: MarthaGunn – Honest

Just Listen: MarthaGunn Honest Words: Amy Butcher I’ve been a big fan of MarthaGunn over the last couple of years, the 70s psychedelic inspired indie rock five-piece have had me addicted to their music since I first heard them live. Following the recent single release of Nowhere To Run at the end of last year, … Continue reading

Just Listen: Maisie Peters – John Hughs Movie

Maisie Peters John Hughs Movie Words: Elena Katrina Maisie Peters isn’t a name you might associate with Popped Music because, until recently, she wasn’t really on our radar (shocking, we know) but we are thankful that her latest single, John Hughs Movie, has landed in our faces and well we had to share it – … Continue reading

Just Listen – Scarlet – Wrong Way

Scarlet Wrong Way Words: Elena Katrina Liverpool’s Scarlet is fronted by the very talented Jessie Robinson whose vocals are instantly recognisable from the first word on Scarlet’s latest offering, Wrong Way.

Just Listen: Francis – Rare/Ocean in Gold

Francis Rare/Ocean in Gold Elena Katrina I’ve often been found discussing with people “what happened to Frances?” Her debut album, Things I’ve Never Said, was sure, I thought, to see her off toward superstardom. It was 3 years between that release and any new material. Today I decided again to check if there was any … Continue reading
