ARCTIC MONKEYS ARE BACK!

Just a super quick post to express my uncontrollable excitement over the news that the Artic Monkey will be back this year. I have waited 5 years (yes, it's been that long since AM ) for this news and the anticipation has been growing since little rumour were flying about last year. The announcement came today …

My Favourite Songs of this Month – Dec 2017

Since it's the last day of the month, and this year, I thought I'd share a quick overview of my favourite songs from the past 4 weeks. It's a good little mix of old and new songs and is a list I came up with rather quickly. This is probably down to the fact I'm …

Benicàssim 2017: My Artist Round​-Up

In July I went to my first ever festival, the Benicassim International Festival 2017. It was the best four nights of my entire life and I would recommend the festival to as many people as I possibly could. Seeing as over a month has passed since going to the festival and my last year of …

Trainspotting, the soundtrack.

I first watched Trainspotting (1996) in my last year of school. We were studying it in our media class and it's fair to say I absolutely fell in love with it. Trainspotting was the highest-grossing British film of 1996 and 10 years on it's still as good as ever. After its release, it became the fourth highest-grossing British film in …

Gigspiration: Bastille

Gigspiration will be a blog series where I let you know how I enjoyed different bands and their live shows. I don't want to write reviews as such but it'll be my reaction to the night from a music lover and fans point of view. I'll start with a few gigs from last year and …

Different Creatures – Circa Waves

'Different Creatures' has been the anticipated second album for Circa Waves since the success of their debut album, 'Young Chasers' was released in 2015. Growing from an up and coming indie band, known for their summer loving hits, to a solid brit band has been an impressive turnaround for the 4 Liverpudlian lads. This new …

My love of vinyl.

I have been obsessed with getting my own record player ever since I saw my parents' record collection coming down from our attic a few years ago. A year ago last Christmas this dream of mine came true, along with the start of my very own record collection. To me, a record is one of …

The Wombats: 10 Years On

One of my all time favourite albums turns 10 this year (!!!), and I still can't quite believe it, so today I've decided to reminisce. The Wombats' debut album 'A Guide To Love, Loss & Desperation'  was released in 2007. Although I didn't discover the band until I was 15, 5 years after the initial …

My Blog: Music

Why did I choose music for my blog? Music is probably the one topic I feel most comfortable writing about. I have been a musician all my life and when it comes to it I just understand it and  know what's going on. With Mum being Irish and Dad being Welsh,  and both coming from …
