Interview: Bloxx

Bloxx Words: Daniel Burton Photography: Gary Lambert The last time I saw Bloxx they were in the middle of putting on a sensational performance in a barn in the middle of the countryside. It wasn’t an off-the-cuff thing, but a cracker of a set at 110 Above Festival. Even in the short time since then … Continue reading

Our Girl Interview

Our Girl Words: Elena Katrina & Gary Lambert  Photos: Gary Lambert The last time Popped Music were with Our Girl it was in the warm (but breezy) Texan sunshine of SXSW. Things had changed though over the last six months as we caught up again outside a bar in Liverpool on a chilly Sunday evening. … Continue reading

Tom Grennan Words: Samantha Sadler London singer & songwriter Tom Grennan has been building up an impressive fanbase over the past couple of years and with very good reason.

Playlist Winner Q&A: Little Brother Eli

Little Brother Eli Playlist 014 Winner For those who haven’t got to grips with you yet – please introduce yourselves:  We’re Little Brother Eli. We’re mostly from the countryside.

Interview Exclusive: Sea Girls

Sea Girls Words: Luke Pettican Sea Girls are unstoppable at the moment having released 2 EP’s this year alone and smashed a string of festival dates. With a headline October tour and more festival dates (including London’s Bushstock), they aren’t showing any signs of slowing down. We spoke to singer/guitarist/frontman Henry Camamile and guitarist Rory … Continue reading

Interview Exclusive: Fizzy Blood

Fizzy Blood Words: Samantha Sadler   Lively five-piece Fizzy Blood are definitely a force to be reckoned with. Formed in 2014, the Leeds lads have been touring relentlessly throughout May and are jumping straight onto the festival circuit this summer.   But what’s their story? I caught up with Benji Inkley (vocals), Paul Howells (guitarist/songwriter) … Continue reading

Interview Exclusive: Marsicans

Marsicans Interview: Georgia Flynn Intro: Elena Katrina Having shown these guys much love for quite some time, and them us, when they came to play for us last year, we figured it was about time that we actually sat down with the Leeds lads of Marsicans and chewed the fat. Their recent UK tour gave … Continue reading

SXSW With: Ider

Ider They give little away on their own social media accounts but a little digging can find you a bit more about the London based female duo Ider. Like they’ve been around for only a few years and have already made an impact that’s seen them play some pretty cool shows and festivals, as well … Continue reading

SXSW With: Our Girl

Our Girl Words & Photos: Elena Katrina  It’s OK to see a band you like more than once in a few weeks, it’s OK to see them 4 times in less than 3 weeks, I know this, because I’ve done it. I did it with Our Girl, though it wasn’t necessarily intentionally but if they’re … Continue reading

SXSW With: Only Girl

Only Girl Words & Photos: Elena Katrina  I discovered Only Girl a few years back and I don’t really recall where or how, I just know that her vocal was mesmerising. Not long after I managed to see her play to a very small group of people at a very small and very wonderful independent … Continue reading

SXSW With: Breakfast Muff

Breakfast Muff Words and Photos: Elena Katrina  I’ll be honest… I’ve never seen Breakfast Muff play live before, I don’t even know, truthfully still, if I’ve sat down and listened to them before now. I’ve seen their name on posters and I’ve heard them being talked about so I figured, when is best to get … Continue reading

SXSW With: Tijuana Bibles

Tijuana Bibles Words & Photos: Elena Katrina  Sometimes bands can fall off your radar and throw themselves right back in when you least expect it. Not to say that I never thought Tijuana Bibles would be at SXSW but as they’d not been in my field of view for a while I was really happy … Continue reading

SXSW With: Pale Waves

Pale Waves Words & Photos: Elena Katrina Do you want to do something with Pale Waves at SXSW was the e-mail I had a few weeks ago. YES! Was my answer… then nothing, zip, nada. Then when chased “they’re not doing press”. NO. Not taking that as an answer because that’s not true. So when … Continue reading

SXSW With: Flyte

Flyte Words & Photos: Elena Katrina  I’ve never interviewed a band at 11pm before, that I can recall, because that usually means they’ve already been on stage to play. Not this time though, with a hefty 12.20 set time 11pm seemed a reasonable time to meet up in Downtown Austin with Flyte ahead of their … Continue reading
