Live Review: Tom Grennan – Liverpool

Tom Grennan 20th October, o2 Academy,  Liverpool Words: Elena Katrina Photos: Gary Lambert Anticipation hung so thick in the air and let’s be honest when it comes to the o2 Liverpool there’s very little air to be had.

Just Listen: Palace – Heaven Up There

Palace – Heaven Up There Words: Elena Katrina  With sumptuous guitar swirls that gently wrap around you, Popped favourites, Palace return with new single Heaven Up There, and it does a frighteningly good job of doing the track title justice. The band have a very defined sound that is instantly recognisable, in no doubt partly … Continue reading

Live Review: Sisteray – Liverpool

Sisteray The Jacaranda Club, 12 October 2018   Words & Photos: Gary Lambert Every legendary band has a tale which may or may not be true about playing a gig to just the barman or old Bill who drank in the pub every night of his life from aged 7. Which sounds cool, but I … Continue reading

Just Listen: Vanity Fairy – He Can Be Your Lady Words: Elena Katrina Can’t I just write: “It’s awesome, go and listen to it?” – no, you expect more of me? oh, ok then… Well this has movie soundtrack all over it, some stylish, maybe something Drive-esque:sharp, clean, edgy and cool as hell and a … Continue reading

Just Listen: Wyldest – Headrush

Wyldest – Headrush Words: Rachel Allen Being a cold, windy, autumnal evening when apparently storm ‘Callum’ (who thinks up these names?!) has come to play, what better a soundtrack than the eerie, ambient soundscapes of London trio Wyldest’s latest track ‘Headrush.’ Taken off their debut album ‘Dream Chaos’, ‘Headrush’ speaks through its almost hypnotically driving … Continue reading

Just Watch: Bloxx – Monday

Bloxx – Monday Words: Daniel Burton After every song Bloxx have released, despite my love and massive backing of the Uxbridge four-piece, I am always sceptical as to whether they can pull another hit out of the bag after setting the bar so high with prior songs. All of their releases so far have had … Continue reading

Just Listen: Lucia – Summertime

Lucia – Summertime Words: Gary Feeney It’s not exactly a secret that we’ve been huge fans of LUCIA for a long time.

Popped Round-up #001 September 2018 Words: Daniel Burton and Josh Driver   LADY Bird – Boot Fillers  After listening to a few of Lady Bird’s songs, I couldn’t help but think ‘The Streets meets Slaves’.

Album Review: Black Honey – Black Honey

Black Honey Released 21st September 2018 Words: Gary Lambert Christmas Day happens once every year so you don’t have that long to wait.  The first time I saw Black Honey perform live, it was three years ago.

Just Listen: Jack Vallier – Anyway

Jack Vallier – Anyway Words: Nick Bewes Jack Vallier is a new name to me, but is certainly a name I will keep an eye for in the future on the strength of his new single, Anyway. It’s the sort of song that if it was sung by a former member of One Direction, would … Continue reading

Just Listen: Saytr Play – Fragile

Saytr Play – Fragile Words: Elena Katrina  It’s easy to see, well, hear, why Saytr Play are pulling in the numbers where fans are concerned when you listen to new single Fragile. Full of quirky musical and vocal moments and a chorus that demands to be sang. This reminds me of a time I really … Continue reading

Just Listen: SPINN – Shallow

SPINN – Shallow Words: Luke Pettican Hooking you in instantly with an intriguing, suspenseful introduction, ‘Shallow’ proves to be one of the finest tracks that Liverpool four-piece SPINN has released thus far.
