Just Watch: Tom Walker – Leave The Light On

Tom Walker Words: Elena Katrina Tom Walker has been one of my firm favourite singer song-writers for the past 18 months and his recent singles have seen him being propelled further and further into the public’s sight. Latest single Leave The Light On brings even more pop and urban sensibilities into play and a production … Continue reading

Video Premiere: Ovvls – Mind Leeches

Ovvls Words: Elena Katrina I’ll be honest – I’m really not that into watching band’s videos – sometimes they can absolutely put me off a band or a track so I don’t tend to watch them unless I already know I like the song. This has worked well this time around  for Ovvls and me … Continue reading

Just Watch: Suzi Wu – Taken Care Of

Suzi Wu Words: Elena Katrina I’ve been a bit obsessed with Suzi Wu since her debut Teenage Witch etched itself into my subconscious and has lived there, creeping me out, for a good few months. I all but jumped up and down when I accidentally had a meeting with one of her team last week … Continue reading

Just Watch: Cristobal And The Sea – Steal My Phone

Cristobal And The Sea Words: Elena Katrina Get involved and jump aboard – Cristobal and The Sea are one of my favourite producers of kooky vibes and new single Steal My Phone does not disappoint! They come along ever so often and sprinkle chunks of happiness all over me with their abundance of joyous sounds. … Continue reading

Just Watch: The Big Moon – Pull The Other One

The Big Moon Words: Elena Katrina It goes without saying that The Big Moon’s Pull The Other One is no new tune to us, it is, however, one of my faves. Sultry and slow in the majority of it’s vocal delivery with an abundance of teasing harmonies. The video though is another glimpse into the … Continue reading

Just Watch: RedFaces – Wise Up

RedFaces Words: Gary Lambert If I had not seen RedFaces in action, I would be starting conspiracy theories of them being a cartoon band or Milli Vanilli for the modern era. I mean it is not right that a band can drop Wise Up as their second ever release and it sounds such a perfect … Continue reading

Just Watch: Pumarosa – Dragonfly

Pumarosa Words: Nick Jacques According to an excerpt from an interview the spiritual psych London outfit Pumarosa, the aim of their music is to work everyone up into a euphoric state. On the evidence of this forthcoming single Dragonfly this could not be further from the truth. This immersive and prowling number from their upcoming … Continue reading

Track by Track Exclusive: Natalie McCool – Cover Combat

Natalie McCool Track by Track Exclusive Words: Elena Katrina Liverpool based singer songwriter Natalie McCool has been a firm favourite here at Popped Music HQ and it’s not just us who has been won over with her sparkling clear vocal and spectacular ability to create intelligent pop-lead stories, there’s a whole army of fans growing … Continue reading

Just Watch: The Bay Rays – Aphelion

The Bay Rays Words: Gary Hughes Even though it helps me to make sense of what I am listening to, I’m trying to keep other bands out of my reviews. If you see any, feel free to call me out on it* Aphelion is  from the trio The Bay Rays, hailing from the Garden of … Continue reading

Just Watch: False Advertising – Sigh

False Advertising Words: Gary Lambert When I think of False Advertising, I think of loud, thrashing rock with a strong hint of a tune to it. However, Sigh is a game changer. It still sounds like False Advertising, but with Jen Hingley leading the band on this track the overall result is far more melodic. … Continue reading

Just Watch: Norma Jean Martine – I Want You To Want Me

Norma Jean Martine Words: Gary Hughes Norma Jean Martine has an interesting journey to date. At least one incredible writing partner (Burt Bacharach) , varied writing credits (one of the Pussycat Dolls and an Italian X Factor winner) and support slots (ODell and Coombes)…. Echoes of Lana Del Rey’s vocals in previous song Animals; the … Continue reading

Just Watch: Sundara Karma – She Said

Sundara Karma Words: Georgia Mae Blackman Sundara Karma have already had a huge year  and we’ve already had a little taster of their upcoming debut album, Youth is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect, with tracks such as A Young Understanding and Loveblood. The third track to be released from the album is She Said, which, … Continue reading

Just Listen: Fickle Friends – Cry Baby

Fickle Friends Words: Georgia May Blackman As we patiently wait for Fickle Friends to release their debut album, they taunt us with their new, funky and infectious track Cry Baby. The pop tune is playful, with a slapping drum beat with a distinction between a modern vibe and an 80’s vibe to it. It’s simple … Continue reading

Just Watch: Honeyblood – Ready For The Magic

Honeyblood Words: Gary Feeney One of the finest acts to emerge from Glasgow in recent times, Honeyblood are back with Ready for the Magic, the first single from their long-awaited second album Babes Never Die, and on this evidence they’ve returned even better (and louder) than before. A distinctly heavier song than anything from their … Continue reading

Just Watch: Nimmo – My Only Friend

Nimmo Words: Daryl Wafer Emerging electronic-pop  piece Nimmo burst onto the scene with their first single Dilute This which was a perfect ‘chicken necker’. Now they return with their brand new single My Only Friend. Ever as catchy and charismatic, pouring their heart, soul and vocals into a track about loss of a friendship. Their … Continue reading
