JUST LISTEN: EUPHORIA – VLURE

VLURE Euphoria Words by Gary Lambert VLURE have the potential to be one of the greatest bands in British music history. Honestly, I type that and feel there is not a drop of hyperbole in that. The potential that these Glaswegian rave punk warriors have is stratospheric. If you have yet to see them live, … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: GLAMBOY – WHAT SHE WANTS

GLAMBOY What She Wants Words by Gary Lambert This is the dawning of a new day. We are now entering GLAMBOY‘s world. The Leeds-based Londoner has dropped their first track and it’s a banger.

JUST LISTEN: URBAN ARCHITECTS – A STROKE OF LUCK

Urban Architects A Stroke of Luck Words by Daniel Burton A Stroke of Luck is the upbeat anthem that everyone was in need of this summer. We may be 8 months into 2021, and 2 waves of a pandemic since Urban Architects’ last release, but rest-assured it has been well worth the wait. The opening … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: RED RUM CLUB – VIBRATE

Red Rum Club Vibrate Words by Gary Lambert Fans of Red Rum Club wore t-shirts emblazoned with Scouse Americana during their Matador era, and whilst the Red Rum Club sound has evolved and grown from those days, the American musical motif still applies. For Vibrate though, the six piece have headed down the Florida coast … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: KATY ALEX – SUCKER FOR LOVE

Katy Alex Sucker For Love Words by Gary Lambert One of my favourite thing in the world is watching pop music at festivals. In bygone years they were an afternoon treat for the kids, but now they are rightly given the respect they deserve for the effort and craft that goes into making pop songs … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: ZUZU – MY OLD LIFE

Zuzu My Old Life Words by Gary Lambert Wow! is the first thing that comes to mind after listening to Zuzu‘s latest single from her forthcoming debut album, Queensway Tunnel. All the old Zuzu touchstones are there, but this is a bold move into for me a more expansive sound. My Old Life reminds me … Continue reading

Just Listen: George Cosby – Lost On You

George Cosby Lost On You Words: Elena Katrina Sometimes you press play on a tack and you’re greeted with something so delightful, that something in your physicality changes for a while. Upon pressing play on Lost On You by George Cosby, I was pulled back deeper into my seat, caressed by a warmth of his … Continue reading

Just Listen: Ten Tonnes – Everything You Got

Ten Tonnes Everything You Got Words: Amy Butcher Having been a fan of Ten Tonnes for a good few years now, I’ve really enjoyed seeing what the singer/songwriter has produced musically. From ‘Lay It On Me’ to ‘Better Than Me’ a couple of years ago to his recent single ‘Girl Are You Lonely Like Me?’; … 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 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: 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. Grand National is a great example of how a raw band can progress, improve and grow without changing what made them exciting in the first … Continue reading

Channel Tres Need You Right Now Words: Amy Butcher Dan D’Lion has started the year releasing a cracking first single of 2021 in his collaboration with Channel Tres ‘Need You Right Now’.

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

Just Listen: The Native – Lost On You

The Native Lost On You Words: Elena Katrina With a pounding driving force, The Native’s latest single Lost On You throws out some punches that make it impossible not to sit up and listen and, for me, impossible not to stick on repeat and join them on a passionate sing-along. There’s a hint to a … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: TALKBOY – STUPID LUCK

Talkboy Stupid Luck Words by Gary Lambert Talkboy are big favourites at Popped Music, and unsurprisingly Stupid Luck has only worked to cement that feeling. Whilst the opening note of Stupid Luck made me think of If You Tolerate This… the rest of the track is pure Talkboy.  Laidback, sweet, crystal clear and so cool. … Continue reading
