Live Review: The Old Pink House and The Pale White

The Old Pink House and The Pale White Northumbria University, Newcastle, 8th December 2018 Words: Sammy Sadler  This isn’t the first time I’ve reviewed The Old Pink House and The Pale White. In fact, I don’t think it’s even my second. I’ve seen these two bands a lot over the past year and they get better each time, with … Continue reading

Live Review: BBC Introducing -Harlea, Pizzagirl and Mellah

BBC Introducing – Harlea, Pizzagirl and Mellah The Lexington, London, 4th December 2018 Words: Megan Berridge  Naturally, I arrived late after getting a train and two tubes to get to what can only be described as a thistle amongst roses, The Lexington. The pub itself is lovely, but when it’s a two minute walk from … Continue reading

EP Review: Pizzagirl – Season 2

Pizzagirl – season 2 Words: Megan Berridge Pizza seems to always be delivered by a male courier. Actually, hang on, this applies to most takeaway food services. Ordered a Chinese? Yep, that’s a man knocking at the door. Fancy an Indian? Great! Another opportunity to have a man on your doorstep. Let’s be honest, feminism … Continue reading

Just Watch: Isaac Gracie – Broken Wheel

Isaac Gracie – Broken Wheel Words: Rachel Allen ‘Broken wheel’ is a title I expected to hold a melancholy tune – but far be it for Isaac Gracie’s new release. Like his new video reflects, the light and feel good style of playing that wraps around his ironically pensive and sad lyric just seems to … Continue reading

Just Listen: Vanity Fairy – Loverman

Vanity Fairy – Loverman Words: Rachel Allen Prince and The Bee Gees are just some of the artists that spring to mind when first hearing the falsetto notes and echos of Vanity Fair’s Daisy Capri. She brings a unique and startlingly strange fascination to her vocal in her chilled out, catchy electro-pop track ‘Loverman.’ She … Continue reading

Just Listen: GURU – Customer Helpline

GURU – Customer Helpline Words: Megan Berridge From its title, you might expect ‘Customer Helpline’ to be something of a cyber-age track — an ornament decorated with stale, robotic lyrics and tinselled with soulless beeps and chimes. But it’s not. I was drinking a lukewarm cuppa-instant-joe and listening to Simon and Garfunkel on a damp … Continue reading

Just Listen: Green Gardens – Change The Light

Green Gardens – Change The Light Words: Georgia-Mae Blackman What’s the danger of listening to new, interesting music? There’s no danger at all. Leeds art-pop band, Green Gardens are all sorts of fascinating, but beautiful. Newly released and highly anticipated single ‘Change The Lights’ is laced with funky riffs and breathtaking energy. The vocal ranges … Continue reading

Just Listen: Birch – Labor Fruit

Birch – Labor Fruit Words: Julia Grantham When my good friend Michelle Birsky of New York synth-pop band Birch got in touch asking me to review her latest single ‘Labor Fruit’, I hesitated briefly, but only enough to decide it was time to bring this track back to Popped Music. The place where I had discovered … Continue reading

Just Listen: Kidsmoke – Rising Sun

Kidsmoke – Rising Sun Words: Rob Connor 6 Seconds! I timed it. The sleepy ethereal opening of Kidsmokes’ ‘Rising Sun’ is 6 seconds, before it hits you with a gut punch of a guitar riff and sets off like a whippet straight out of the traps. That 6 seconds is the only respite you’ll get on … Continue reading

Live Review: The Third Wheel Tour, EBGBs 30 October 2018

The Third Wheel Tour E.B.G.B.S, Liverpool, 30th October 2018 Words: Daniel Burton Photos: Gary Lambert As soon as this tour was announced, I was buzzing from the thought of seeing three of the best prospects of this time all on the same bill. This tour really does show off what the UK music scene has … Continue reading

Live Review: Saint Agnes – Liverpool

Saint Agnes The Shipping Forecast, 17th October 2018 Words and photography: Gary Lambert There are times that you come across gigs which leave you with a profound feeling beyond enjoyment. Watching Saint Agnes’ mix of witchcraft and (guitar) wizardry was one of those nights. I have been rather fortunate of late that I have been … Continue reading

Just Listen: Chlöe Howl – Work

Chlöe Howl – Work Words: Nick Bewes Chlöe Howl is a name that has been on my radar for a good few years now. She released her debut EP back in 2013 and was nominated for the BBC Sound of 2014 and for the Brits Critics Choice the same year, losing out to Sam Smith, … Continue reading

Live review: Gwenno – London

Gwenno Islington Assembly Hall, 18th October 2018 Words: Nicholas Jacques Thursday night saw welsh indie-pop songstress Gwenno bring her live show and original, not to mention brilliant 2nd album ‘Le Kov’ to London. A personal highlight for me this year! The anticipation was high as I wanted to see how she would bring the sparse synth … Continue reading

Just Listen: Annabel Allum – Sofa Song

Annabel Allum – Sofa Song Words: Georgia-Mae Blackman After having a successful festival season by playing Reading Festival and Brighton’s notorious The Great Escape Festival, Annabel Allum has released her fresh and raw single, ‘Sofa Song’, whilst announcing a UK tour which consists of 12 dates, from London to Glasgow. In her new track, dry … Continue reading

Live Review: Talos & Editors – Newcastle

Talos & Editors Northumbria University, 11th October 2018 Words: Sammy Sadler I’m ashamed to admit that although I have been a fan of Editors from afar for a long time, I never really paid much attention to the British indie-rock outfit. There always seemed to be some other band that I was obsessing about at … Continue reading
