Rather than attempt to recapture the ethereality of what in my opinion was 2019's album of the year, Twigs' vibrant new mixtape introduces a more effervescent side to her art. Albeit a stark contrast with the sensational 'MAGDALENE', 'CAPRISONGS' flaunts Twigs' diversity as an artist, which sees her continuously push boundaries when it comes to experimental pop. Collaborating with artists outside of her sphere on 'CAPRISONGS', Twigs not only explores new genres, but also implements her ... read more

Though it's certainly not uncommon for Earl to utilise his music as an archive for accumulated thoughts, his fourth studio album embodies an uncharacteristically buoyant outlook on the future, in spite of the arduous times in which it was written.

Dawn FM sees The Weeknd confront the hauntings of his past as he embarks upon a journey towards self-acceptance. With the concept unravelled through a radio station hosted by Jim Carrey, Abel's beautifully crafted 5th studio album entices the listener into joining his pursuit of inner peace.

Sonically, Dawn FM extends upon the rich, synth-heavy, disco inspired After Hours, which sees Abel step even further into the 80s aesthetic he's flirted with over the past few years. Where so many have ... read more

The release of 'Spare Ribs' means Sleaford Mods' catalogue now boasts 6 studio albums, countless mixtapes and a handful of EPs - but the electro-punk duo have quickly become as predictable as the Government's shortcomings on which they base their entire artistic output. Granted, blame must largely be attributed to the dark cloud of
Conservatism which has lingered over the UK for well over a decade now, but Sleaford Mods' urge to release such griping projects on such a regular basis is ... read more

The second single for my Halloween project is out now! Would love to get your opinion on it! I'll also be reworking the first single to sound better and fit the project more!
