BOTW Moodboard: Glass Animals

While their debut album isn’t out until later in the year, there is already a humongous amount of buzz surrounding Oxfordshire quartet, Glass Animals. This hype has only been exacerbated by the involvement of super producer and songwriter, Paul Epworth – you know, the guy that has worked and

BOTW Moodboard: Kyla La Grange

Riding high on the back of second album ‘Cut Your Teeth’, the amazing Kyla La Grange takes us through some of the brilliant things that inspire her on a daily basis, from her pet dog and trifle to Game of Thrones and other fantasies.

Air Crash Investigation

‘I get really …

Kyla La Grange: BOTW Interview

Musical U-turns rarely work out, but Watford-born musician Kyla La Grange proves the opposite on new album ‘Cut Your Teeth’ (released last week), which almost completely abandons the bleak folk-rock sound of her debut, ‘Ashes’. In its place, Jakwob’s bassy production skills and a long time spent playing on Garageband …

BOTW Playlist: Ronika

Nottingham pop musician Ronika channels the sunshine in the playlist she’s compiled for the second instalment of this week’s BOTW. Like her own album Selectadisc (out in a fortnight), the playlist effortlessly jumps from one genre to the next.

Right away, the good times beckon as Dutch producer Karmon leads …

Meet our BOTW: Ronika

It’s taken a few years for Ronika to get her self-produced, self-released debut album out there, but at last she has – and it’s awesome. As the musician herself puts it, Selectadisc peddles a broad, pop aesthetic but also adds underground genres into the mix. Many of the songs are

Meet our BOTW: We Were Evergreen

A number of cute little Gallicisms crop up in our conversation with Michael Liot, the lead singer in Paris-via-London indie pop trio We Were Evergreen. Among our favourites is the word ‘organism’, which he utters every time he means to say ‘organisation’ (it means both ‘organism’ and ‘organisation’ in French).

Meet our BOTW: La Sera

The latest La Sera album (streaming now on Pitchfork) begins with a suckerpunch in exhilarating opener ‘Losing To The Dark’, a caterwauling garage jam that deals with a drug-addled ex-lover. Bringing to mind the scruffier ends of riot grrrl, or an extremely lo-fi Long Blondes (remember them?), it’s a

BOTW Moodboard: Tirzah

London artist Tirzah lets us in on her (mostly) musical winners in this week’s BOTW Moodboard. Eclectic to say the least, we veer from old-time crooners to obscure post-disco, via an influential stand-up comic, a dancehall singjay, Elvis Presley and a bandcamp newcomer. There’s truly something for everyone.

‘Tenor Saw …

Meet our BOTW: Tirzah

Under The Skin OST composer Mica(chu) Levi and her bffl Tirzah have been making beats since secondary school. It’s no surprise, then, how tight they sound on the latter’s brilliant ‘No Romance’ EP, released last week. Still very much a side-project for Tirzah (musicians do have day-jobs, you know), her

BOTW Moodboard: MOVEMENT

Marvellous Ozzie three-piece MOVEMENT have compiled a pretty radical moodboard for the final instalment of their BOTW, construing the ‘mood’ part of the word in its most ominous, warpish sense. Warning: maximum bleakness.

Night Time (But it keeps warm)

“We write almost all of our music in the evening. For …
