Track of the Week – Lucy Rose

Lucy Rose

Lucy Rose

Lucy Rose has made a “comeback” after having disappeared for a while – but now she sounds better than ever (and yes, we did love her old stuff too). After a tour with Bombay Bicycle Club, the 25 year old singer-songwriter has now released her new singles Our Eyes and Like An Arrow from her upcoming album Work It Out.

We’re excited to introduce you to Like An Arrow, if you haven’t had the pleasure of listening to it yet. It goes down a treat and deserves the title track of the week!

Enjoy.

Gig Review – HAIM at Brixton Academy, 6th March, 2014

Everyone was awaiting Haim’s biggest gig in the UK (apart from all the festivals and the gig in my backyard) and they didn’t disappoint! It was the third time I’ve seen Haim on one of their UK tours and despite me knowing that they are great performers, they still exceeded my expectations. Danielle’s voice was – as always – just incredible, plenty of people would swap their left leg and their right ear for the vocal tones and her amazing guitar skills!

Este not only got her best bass faces out – she also had a story to tell…about a nap, or was it…something else? Well, basically…you missed out! Should have been at the gig to hear the story. Maybe tweet her at @jizziemcguire – she might evaluate on that again…

Alana Haim again convinced the audience with her charming smile and ability to not only sing, but also play every single instrument on this planet.

Conclusion:

Don’t you regret not having joined the band when your brothers / sisters asked you when you were younger? You could have been the new Haim. Regardless – it’s hard to be in the same street as Haim, because they are just amazing performers and it seems like it comes natural to them. Keep going girls, we love you!

 

Here are some more images of Brixton – well, the gig, not really the place. If anyone wants to see pictures of Brixton, then let me know.

 

For all of you who have managed to ignore every radio station and magazine in the country: here’s their new single!

 

HAIM – If I Could Change Your Mind

Track of the Week – Tropic of Youth

This week’s Track of the Week goes to…Tropic of Youth’s Poa Kichizi Kama Ndizi (now try and say that out loud!)

Tropic of Youth

Tropic of Youth

Poa Kichizi Kama Ndizi instantly takes your mind off all worries and makes you experience an acoustic holiday – and let’s be honest: who doesn’t need a holiday? I swear I can feel a sea breeze when listening to this song. 

Tropic of Youth create a wonderful atmosphere of light tunes – ‘soft rock world beat’, as the band self-labelled it. I imagine Tropic of Youth to be the ideal band to see at a festival. For everyone who likes Fair Ohs

Now enjoy your holiday and check it out!

Track Of The Week – Arctic Monkeys

AM - Arctic Monkeys

AM – Arctic Monkeys

The Arctic Monkeys have just released their newest single Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?. So far it has led to different reactions among the audiences, some love it, some hate it! Inspired by this release we have decided that this week’s Track Of The Week will be from their album, which also features Do I Wanna Know?, No. 1 Party Anthem.

The Arctic Monkeys – they want to be the biggest band in the world – are definitely on the right way, but will it really ever be the case?

 

Here it is – our Track Of The Week:

Arctic Monkeys – R U Mine? 

 

We’re dying to know whether you like this album! Let us know below!
