Live Review: Nimmo and the Gauntletts @ Concrete, 27/03/14

I seem to be saying this a lot recently, but there are many bands and artists experiencing those big moments. These don’t necessarily have to consist of million selling singles or an album at the top of the charts, but rather exist temporally. Seeing Nimmo and the Gauntletts at Concrete …



Live Review: Interpol @ Brixton Academy, 27/03/14

You know when you’re back in your hometown and you run into someone you’ve not seen for years? The hot guy at school, or the popular girl from sixth form? And they’re all married, with kids and have a normal job and looking distinctly less hot, but have a far-off …



Live Review: Drake @ The O2, 26/03/14

So just like that, Drake’s 60 date tour has come to an end. However, the Lightskinned Keith Sweat hasn’t left the building just yet. As of 5am this morning, people have been queuing outside Browns Fashions, South Molten Street, London, for a not so secret meet and greet and the …


Rebecca Ferguson Performs At Shepherds Bush In London

Live Review: Rebecca Ferguson @ Shepherds Bush Empire, 16/03/14

I have a soft spot for Rebecca Ferguson. I supported her when she was on The X Factor, I devoured her debut album, Heaven and I’m still obsessed with her follow up, Freedom. She’s a unique one as her appeal crosses generations, the normal X Factor crash, bang …



Live Review: Sam Smith @ Islington Assembly Hall 26/09/13

Having featured on two of 2013’s biggest songs, it is strange to think that Sam Smith has only released one proper single. Seeing the turn out at the Islington Assembly Hall, it is heartwarming to see that people obviously really like him.

Sauntering onto the stage, Smith has a …



Live Review: Laura Marling @ at The Lowry

She takes to the stage in what appears to be a frilly Victorian nightgown. She dissolves into the dress, white on white, the porcelain English rose – with red Converse on underneath.

The age-old truism that appearances are deceptive certainly stands true with Laura Marling. She is a fierce, dark, …



Live review: Neon Neon resurrect an icon of Italian Communism

Neon Neon’s second album is inspired by the life of Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, an Italian Communist who was integral to spreading the ideologies and ideas of revolutionaries such as Fidel Castro. And Neon Neon being Neon Neon, they went on tour and put on a live action spectacular that fans will never forget.

Interview: Junip

Junip have more than enough credentials to fill the age-old cavernous atria of The Village Underground. The venue itself (once a Victorian warehouse) was filled to the rafters for the Swedish trio’s London gig, each punter eagerly waiting for the Scandinavian adventure to begin.

Elias Araya, Tobias Winterkorn and …


Blackbird Blackbird

Live Review: Blackbird Blackbird

It was a night of chillwave, dream pop and very-nearly psychedelic sounds hosted by Stroll On Records on the 17th of May at the Lexington.  Local artists, The Himalayan Headwaters, started out the night followed by the Norwegian band, Philco Fiction, and finally rounded out by one …



Live Review: Milton Jackson and Washerman

The usual, the usual…I wasn’t quite sure what could possibly be the usual here.  The last time I had visited the nondescript (at least from the outside) Hackney Wick warehouse it had been kitted out with a mini-ramp, make-shift half-pipe, several lasers and a fog machine.  This night’s particular fete …
