The 1975 – “Sincerity Is Scary”

I was not ready for this at all, ‘Sincerity is Scary’ was just another taster from the long-awaited album ‘A Brief Enquiry into Online Relationships’. This powerful, sultry ballad is unlike anything the band has ever produced before and it shows off the extreme versatility of being able to play with different genres, popular artists’Continue reading “The 1975 – “Sincerity Is Scary””

Ice Nine Kills – ‘The Silver Scream’

I love it when a band is insanely clever. And when I say insanely clever I mean it. Ice Nine Kills have proved in the past that they can take a medium and remake it into something else. Like in the 2015 literature themed album Every Trick In The Book which is a bloody wittyContinue reading “Ice Nine Kills – ‘The Silver Scream’”

ANNISOKAY – ‘Arms’

Hailing from Germany ANNISOKAY is a five-piece band founded in 2007 by members Christoph and Norbert. The name coming from Michael Jackson’s hit Smooth Criminal to confirm the fact that Ann is indeed okay. A comic name indeed for a metalcore band. Having already released three full-length albums and a 4-track cover of Michael JacksonContinue reading “ANNISOKAY – ‘Arms’”

Kurt Vile – ‘Bottle It In’

It was a Friday morning. And a warm one too, for what should have been a chilly, autumnal day in October. Rays of sunlight were playfully peeping around the edges of my curtains where they don’t quite meet the wall. I shimmied myself into an upright position and rubbed my eyes. I pressed against themContinue reading “Kurt Vile – ‘Bottle It In’”

PNL “leave the KOKO stage in the same conditions they came in: booed, hissed and cursed.”

Joggers, weed and Algerian flags – that is what a PNL concert looks and smells like. Before the Franco-Algerian rap sensations came on, Flohio delivered a pretty good set-list, introducing herself to the audience, mainly made up of young French people smoking, wearing joggers, tinted glasses, sleek hair, and so on. Brothers Ademo and N.O.SContinue reading “PNL “leave the KOKO stage in the same conditions they came in: booed, hissed and cursed.””
