Todd & Karen Deliver Eight Indie Pop Belters On Their Latest Album: ‘Singles’

Gee Nelson

Since 2021, the Norwegian-Irish / Swiss indie pop duo Todd & Karen have been steadily dropping singles… very good singles! Now, they’ve packaged these singles into an album titled… wait for it… ‘Singles.’ The album features eight tracks that blend indie rock with pop sensibilities and is worthy of 24 minutes of anyone’s time. The […]

‘Who Is The Alien?’ – Gender Reveal Atomic Bomb: Joyous And Chaotic, Prog-Punk From Belgium

Gareth Johnston

There are few times, as a writer, that you’re genuinely wowed. As you get older the ‘wows’ are fewer and farther betwixt, but when Gender Reveal Atomic Bomb landed on my ‘desk’ my scepticism turned to unbridled joy within 90 seconds. You see, I remember the changing landscape of music in the early ’90s; it […]

Gee Nelson

Nominated for Best Young Breakthrough Artist in 2024, SHANNON DARCY from Essex, UK returns with her latest release, ‘Just Worried Because,’ a lively punk-pop anthem in the style of Avril Lavigne that packs a real punch!

‘Black Bird Fever’ – Will Pope: A Soulful, Folk Ballad From Yorkshire’s Nightingale

Gareth Johnston

It’s looking like an important year for Will Pope; signed to Revolver Records and a follow up to ‘Burying Giants’, in the offing, called ‘True to Form’, of which ‘Black Bird Fever,’ the latest single is taken.  I have to admit that I feel conflicted. Sometimes this occurs for a number of reasons, but ultimately, […]

Seasonal Falls’ ‘Lie Down’: Another Mellow Masterpiece

Matt Warren

I’m a big fan of Seasonal Falls… and I mean a BIG FAN!

Now, the Switzerland-based songwriting team of Roman Gabriel (The Kind Hills, […]

‘Love To Gold’ – Martina Armour: Touchingly Brilliant Indie-Folk-Rock

Gareth Johnston

Born in Sweden, now a native of the City of Angels, aptly enough, Martina Armour is something of an enigma. Her haunting melodies cascade over a canvas of folk-infused rock creating a vast, beautiful panorama awash with late Autumnal tones. There is an unreserved melancholy throughout; a mourning for the falling leaves as the season passes and […]

‘Better Than Dying’ – Plastic Harpoons’ Sunny Pop-Rock Anthem That Should Be On Every Playlist This Summer

Gareth Johnston

Santa Barbara’s Plastic Harpoons return with their first release since 2023’s ‘Meet Me In The Middle.’ ‘Better Than Dying’ is good. In fact, it’s beyond good. Good is a cold pint on a balmy July evening, or your kids actually tidying their room after only the third time of asking. This is better. Much better. And it could […]

In the ’70s the Dutch art punk band Minny Pops released several albums before opening for the iconic Joy Division in 1980. This was the start of their success in the post-punk movement. Rob Gretton, the legendary manager of Joy Division, recognised their potential and ushered them into the fold of Factory Records. Their single […]
