King Calaway deserve a crown for their debut album ‘Rivers’

King Calaway Rivers Album Download Review Nashville

King Calaway are something special. Really. From crafting a debut album that most intrepid, fresh-faced artists could only dream of, to singing the album in one take, there’s no denying that King Calaway are going to soar. The six-man band – with no lead singer, they all share the limelight – are set to release their first album ‘Rivers’ in the UK in March this year, and it’s something to behold… Opening up with the raucous ‘No Matter What’, ‘Rivers’ begins with a fist-pounding, anthemic track that just begs to be played through booming arena […]

Karolina Rose’s ‘Objection’ is a sultry, alluring cover tinged with darkness (Song Review)

karolina rose objection review song review music blog

Taking a go at covering Shakira is no small feat. Attempting to cover ‘Objection’, a deep-cut classic is downright risky. But that’s what Karolina Rose seemingly does best: dances with danger. Her version of ‘Objection’ is sultry and alluring: dressed with rose-gold vibes of modern pop – a noir-coated visage of music. It’s tinged with darkness, as opposed to Shakira’s original lighter, Tango-infused track; but it isn’t darkness of a heavy, stifling kind. Instead, Karolina takes Sharkia’s lyrics and splashes a little bit of the night’s sky over them – but even in the darkest […]

Muse’s ‘Simulation Theory’ tour is an electrifying display of sci-fi rock (London O2 Review)

Gigantic, inflatable robots. Acrobats sailing down massive screens. Synchronised trombone-dances. Gigantic laser-swords. I arrived at the London O2 arena expecting to see a Muse gig. Instead, I was whisked off onto a futuristic, neon-laced trip inside the band’s mind. And it’s a journey I didn’t want to leave. (Photo credit: Raphael Pour-Hashemi) Muse exist in their own genre, somewhere between rock and sci-fi apocalyptic glamour. This wonderfully unique blend of futuristic gloom wrapped up in neon lasers, perfect vocals and a fist-pumping arena filled with 20,000 people is quite the spectacle to behold. The show […]

Fuck it, I love ‘Normal Fucking Rockwell!’ (Album Review)

lana del rey norman fucking rockwell! review ldr nfr! free online listen fuck it i love you the greatest hope is a dangerous thing lana review pop heads popheads

Lana Del Rey is back! Queen of feels, romantic, hopeless lyrics and singing on tire swings. Her latest album is a solid entry into her plethora of Hollywood sadcore records; juggling romanticism, cynicism and tender, fragile positivity all at once. It’s an unusual concoction, but it’s one that Lana, with her unique touch of magic, manages to make work. Lana’s fresh out of fucks to give on ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell!’, and it’s liberating, both musically and personally.     On the title track, Lana opens the album with the lyric: “God damn man child, you […]

Every Killers album ranked from worst to best

We all know ‘Mr. Brightside’, the fist-pumping, jealously-infused track that’s perfect to sing at 2am when you’re wasted. But Vegas rockers The Killers have so much more to offer than just their smash hits. Pretty much every record is a gem, with tracks you ain’t gonna want to skip. With six(ish) records under their belt, and another cooking in the oven, I decided to list The Killers’ albums, from their worst to their best. That’s not to say that some albums are bad. If anything, I personally love each and every one of their records; […]
