Live Review: The Ninth Wave

  It’s fair to say that the Ninth Wave aren’t quite like any other band. From their stylish gothic aesthetics to their vibrant, post-punk tinged tracks, the band haven’t put a foot wrong since their exciting shift that was solidified with the release of their debut EP ‘Reformation’ last year. It therefore doesn’t come asContinue reading “Live Review: The Ninth Wave”

PARTYNEXTDOOR at Brixton Academy

PARTYNEXTDOOR’s ‘Infinity Tour’ arrived at Brixton, providing an evening of celebration of his best music and the many successful hits he’s written for other stars. Support act Jessie Reyez was energetic and lively, although her set was seemingly longer than most of the audience had wished for it to be. Her set excluded props andContinue reading “PARTYNEXTDOOR at Brixton Academy”

Daniel Caesar at KOKO

  The first of Daniel Caesar’s two shows in London as part of his Freudian tour, was chilling and magic. KOKO’s intimacy and stripped back nature as a venue played right into the musically gifted hands of Caesar and his band, each of whom received an ovation halfway through the night. Despite recent project ‘Freudian’Continue reading “Daniel Caesar at KOKO”

Trampolene at 229 the venue (Live Review)

Trampolene are an oddity in the modern music scene,  an otherwise bashful Welsh trio combining chaotic guitars with spoken word. However, as support from Libertine legends Carl Barat and Pete Doherty proved, sometimes you don’t need a predecessor to pave your way, sometimes you’re better off treading your own. The band are becoming familiar facesContinue reading “Trampolene at 229 the venue (Live Review)”

Napoleon, Polar and Counterparts @ The Dome, Tufnell Park (Live Review)

As Anchorman would say, the gig was like being “in a glass case of emotion” with the constant feel-good vibes contrasting jagged sound. It was amusing to see half of the fan’s faces turn sour as they’d glue their fingers into their ears as the microphone pelted through the room during the entirety of theContinue reading “Napoleon, Polar and Counterparts @ The Dome, Tufnell Park (Live Review)”

Kirin J. Callinan: LIVE REPORT

Who is the partially naked man dangling from the rafters at Hotxon Square Bar and Kitchen? That my friends is Kirin J Callinan. Relatively unknown to the wider music press besides reviews from The Guardian, The Fader and Needle drop. The Sydney based eccentric singer/songwriter’s latest album ‘Bravado’ feels tediously overlooked. It’s fusion of cheesyContinue reading “Kirin J. Callinan: LIVE REPORT”
