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”

[LIVE REVIEW] TREETOP FLYERS @ 100 CLUB, LONDON – 04/05/2016

The setting was just about perfect on the 4th May, the sun had brought out the crowds in London’s infamous Oxford Street, so the refuge of the 350 capacity historic 100 Club came as welcome relief. Pictures of past greats who had graced this stage decorated the jazz club combined with the unchanging décor, createdContinue reading “[LIVE REVIEW] TREETOP FLYERS @ 100 CLUB, LONDON – 04/05/2016”

[LIVE REVIEW] LOWER THAN ATLANTIS @ ROUNDHOUSE, CAMDEN, LONDON – 14/12/2015

The iconic Roundhouse has hosted many gigs noted in musical history (Bowie, Hendrix, Pink Floyd), so playing this venue is a big deal. Despite the excitable teenage girls, it’s refreshing to see a mature audience fill up a large percentage of the room, showing that Lower Than Atlantis have matured along with fans from theContinue reading “[LIVE REVIEW] LOWER THAN ATLANTIS @ ROUNDHOUSE, CAMDEN, LONDON – 14/12/2015”

[LIVE REVIEW] THE STORY SO FAR @ KOKO, LONDON – 04/12/2015

Kicking off the night were post-hardcore Americans Drug Church. With their last UK tour going down a storm, this band were highly anticipated.

Frontman Patrick Kindlon humbly thanked everyone for arriving earlyContinue reading “[LIVE REVIEW] THE STORY SO FAR @ KOKO, LONDON – 04/12/2015”

[LIVE REVIEW] RADKEY @ THE BARFLY, CAMDEN, LONDON – 05/11/2015

The beginning of November brought knee-knocking weather, so there is no other way to warm yourself up by watching the punk band Radkey. On a never-ending tour they’d bought a few support act and first up on the bill was Loom. Many of the early birds at the gig had no idea who this bandContinue reading “[LIVE REVIEW] RADKEY @ THE BARFLY, CAMDEN, LONDON – 05/11/2015”

[LIVE REVIEW] DIY PRESENTS: ‘HELLO 2016’ @ OLD BLUE LAST, LONDON – 12/01/2016

The bitter January weather is hugely contrasted with overwhelming waves of teenage body warmth as soon as you take your first step into the Old Blue Last. The bar is almost non–existent upstairs due to the tightly-crammed turn out and although a free gig, I suppose this is the price you pay. I swiftly orderContinue reading “[LIVE REVIEW] DIY PRESENTS: ‘HELLO 2016’ @ OLD BLUE LAST, LONDON – 12/01/2016”

[LIVE REVIEW] CARLY RAE JEPSEN @ ISLINGTON ASSEMBLY HALL, LONDON – 07/12/2015

Carly Rae Jepsen has had one hell of a year. The album E MO TION remains one of 2015’s most interesting success stories, purely because of how unsuccessful it was, yet how amazing it really is as a body of work. No one bought this album, yet this album has made nearly every end “BestContinue reading “[LIVE REVIEW] CARLY RAE JEPSEN @ ISLINGTON ASSEMBLY HALL, LONDON – 07/12/2015”

[LIVE REVIEW] THE VACCINES @ BRIXTON ACADEMY, LONDON – 26/11/2015

The Vaccines are the juggernauts of the British indie rock genre. They released their first album, What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? back in 2011 and, after gaining overwhelming success at a rapid rate, second record Come Of Age followed shortly after in 2012. A brief EP appeared in 2013, but since then theContinue reading “[LIVE REVIEW] THE VACCINES @ BRIXTON ACADEMY, LONDON – 26/11/2015”
