Hot Dreams – Stronger Words: Nick Bewes  No messing about, straight to the point on this, the new single from Hot Dreams ‘Stronger‘ is a corker of a track.

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.

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?

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.

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.
