JST FRNDS will have you up All Night Long (Song Review)

JST FRNDS all night long song review need you

Have you ever discovered a song that you instantly fell in love with, from the very first syllable, one that you just couldn’t wait to replay? JST FRNDS’ second single ‘All Night Long’ ticked that box for me, a perfect concoction of dark-synth-electro-pop. The song paints an image of vacant New York apartments, of rainy city streets, flickering fluorescent lights and tousled bed sheets; of the black screens of phones reflecting the death of a relationship.

Panic!’s ‘Pray For The Wicked’ is an abrasive celebration of hedonism (Album Review)

Contrary to most catchy pop songs, though, this one doesn’t get tiresome. You’ll find yourself hitting repeat […]

Sadds’ debut is infused with soul (EP Review)

‘Soulful and Kind’ is the name of the first track on Sadds self-titled EP; and it’s a theme that carries itself across the five songs.   The tracks are a delightful collection of 80s-inspired soul ballads; an intimate display that makes you feel as if you are sat in a smoky bar listening to the singer himself, rather than streaming his dense voice through your headphones. It’s through this sense of intimacy that allows Sadds to create his own unique little niche in the music industry, a rarity against the trend of pumping out catchy […]
