  • New track & video from Dream Nails
    A powerful statement on the lack of justice for survivors of sexual violence, Dream Nails’ new song ‘Payback’ is an explosion of collective rage.

  • Tamsin Quin – Scandal // Single Review
    Ever since the release of Tamsin’s debut album Gypsy Blood last year, I’ve been really excited to see what was coming next. ‘Scandal’ is the first single from her follow up album and has kept that country/folk sound Tamsin is known for, but has a darker edge to what we saw on the first album.

  • Blindwish – Good Excuses
    It is a rare occurrence to come across a band that formed in a little over a year ago and already producing a large spectrum of solid sounds in a full-length album. But despite the rarity, that is exactly what Blindwish has gone and done. Hailing from Dallas, Texas and establishing themselves back in March […]

    It is fair to regard pop-punk as pretty selfsame from time to time when newbies arrive to incorporate bouncy hooks and catchy melodies. Shaded are, as expected, full to the brim with emotive pop-punk songs that you can’t help but enjoy. They bring together some of the best names from the popular genre, with WSTR […]
