K.I.D – Errors

“Everyone’s asking me what’s wrong?” There’s something deeply unsettling about Errors by garage pop newcomers K.I.D. On the debut single the two piece, made up of Kara Lane and Chris Rabba, the sugary sweet pop sound of the track sits uneasily with the bleak subject matter lyrics, something the band describe on Genius as “a…


Bearcubs – Underwaterfall

“Can’t hold my breath for another” As its title suggests, Underwaterfall is a track submerged in worry. Built with the same tonal palette and structure as Radiohead’s “Everything In Its Right Place”, it’s a meditation on the niggling doubts that to keep you awake at night. A train of existential thought that numbly jumps from your…


Georgia – Feel It

“Don’t be afraid to pick up your sticks and play” Georgia feels like something of an oddity. She first hit the public eye as, in essence, a session drummer for Kate Tempest and Kwes and via a record deal with Domino has since shown her hand as a capable electro-pop songwriter; her 2015 self-titled debut album…


Jay Som – SLOW

“Sinking ’til I cannot swim” When people describe the feeling of a burgeoning relationship, the effect of gravity is never far away from their thoughts and they’re in one of three stages; about to fall, are falling or have fallen in love with the other person. For some this process is as easy as breathing,…

Radiohead – Glass Eyes

Radiohead – Glass Eyes: Hey it’s me, I just got off the train… It was a Thursday morning, just before lunch, when my sister called and told me: “Mum has had a stroke.” FUCK… Hayley only had a few details for me, she was in a specialist ward in Winchester and couldn’t really tell me how bad…


New: Wild Beasts – Get My Bang

Wild Beasts ‘Get My Bang’ – Just Let Them Eat Cake The majority of Wild Beasts’ output has obsessed about the idea modern masculinity. A dissection of modern Englishmen that pits the northern machismo of their Yorkshire upbringing against the politically correct metro-sexuality of the arty London circles of their adult lives. The results of…


Track: Kanye West – Real Friends

Kanye West ‘Real Friends’ – Any argument, the media’ll extend it How many of us are real friends? It’s a question that millions of Facebook users (myself included) ask themselves when the stream of funny videos and GIFs give way to a mind numbing succession of vanity status updates.  After all, do we really care about the pictures of a distant…



Used: Cymbals Eat Guitars – Aerobed

The singing whisper of my piss on porcelain When an important friendship is pushed beyond breaking point the fallout can be unbearable and it’s the theme that sits behind this one off single by Cymbals Eat Guitars. Produced by Brand New frontman Jesse Lacy, the track is a brutally honest ode to the reasons that…
