Review: A Day To Remember at Alexandra Palace

Review: A Day To Remember at Alexandra Palace

One thing is for certain, A Day to Remember don’t do things half-arsed. Their gigs are always rammed with ultra-contagious energetic charisma, and for their biggest ever headline show to date, at which they filmed the tour DVD, they most definitely pulled out all the stops. Held in the magnificent Alexandra Palace (The People’s Palace), a stunning five star venue perched atop a hill overlooking […]

Review: London Grammar – Hey Now

Review: London Grammar – Hey Now

The idea that it was only thirteen months ago that London Grammar launched their incredible career is almost unthinkable. Starting by posting a single track on YouTube, their name spread like wildfire until now they are nominated for Best Breakthrough Act at this year’s Brit awards.

Review: Newton Faulkner – Indecisive

Review: Shad – Y’all Know Me feat. Ebrahim

Review: Shad – Y’all Know Me feat. Ebrahim

Although it’s not one of his leading singles, Y’all Know Me poses to be one of Shad’s best songs from his fourth album lyrically and structurally. Sure, the lyrics revolve across the theme of hustling and working hard, nothing unusual in rap. However, Shad’s unique wording (“I’m Hakeem’s team focused with my dream in the center”- a reference to the Houston Rockets of 1993- 1995) […]
