Track-by-Track: Lover Lover – There Is a Place

Since its release at the tail-end of last year, Lover Lover‘s debut album, There Is a Place, has always felt like a record ripe for deciphering. Whether it’s in the series of mysterious glyphs that encircle the lettering on the LP’s cover, or the rich narrative of love,

EP Review: Happyness – Happyness

Oh, how misleading first impressions can be. From the moment a series of discordant coos and loosely chugging guitars ring out over ‘It’s On You’, the first cut from London trio Happyness’ self-titled debut EP, it’s clear to see what kind of ride the three-piece are going to …

Singtank

Indie Pop Duo Singtank Show Notion Around Paris

Singtank recently released their debut album In Wonder, an impressive piece of work not just for a debut but for an indie pop album in general.  The tracks harken back to those great indie sounds of the 80s and 90s, to groups like the Pixies and the Cure.  To …
