Single Review / Golden Slumbers – Elbow

It is that time of year again, folks. Yes, the festive season means only one thing: Christmas adverts.

Single Review / Look What You Made Me Do – Taylor Swift

The old Taylor Swift is dead. At least, that’s what she’s telling herself and above all, wants you to believe. In reality, the country-turned-pop star is the same as she ever was - even if she doesn’t realise it - only this time with a new addition: her most controversial single to date, ‘Look What… Continue reading Single Review / Look What You Made Me Do – Taylor Swift

Single Review / Don’t Matter Now – George Ezra

Three years ago, the warm, baritone vocals of singer-songwriter George Ezra cemented him as one of the UK's most loved and best-selling artists. His first hit 'Budapest' was a sleeper, slowly but surely becoming one of the most popular songs of 2014, and with his debut album Wanted On Voyage being an unprecedented success, namely for the man… Continue reading Single Review / Don’t Matter Now – George Ezra

Single Review: Slow Hands – Niall Horan

Another week, another 1D member’s solo effort.

Single Review / Tired As Fuck – The Staves

Perhaps a profanity in a song title isn’t something we’d expect from indie-folk trio, The Staves, but it’s something they’ve certainly surprised us with. Ahead of a North American tour and headlining Bushstock this summer, the band have released a double-A side single consisting of ‘Train Tracks’ and 'Tired As Fuck'. The latter is a… Continue reading Single Review / Tired As Fuck – The Staves

Single Review / Wild Fire – Laura Marling

There are many things that have already characterised 2017 as another particularly awful year, but the return of Laura Marling is certainly not one of them. While the beginning of this year may have brought with it a new, strongly-opposed US President and several debates regarding feminism and women's rights, Marling has delivered some much-needed sunshine in… Continue reading Single Review / Wild Fire – Laura Marling

Single Review / One Day I’ll Fly Away – VAULTS

Another year, another John Christmas advert. When the festive period hits, the British public waits in anticipation to see just what the department store will do next.
