Meet Me Halfway at Least to Rituals; The Musical Evolution of Deaf Havana

I wrote before about how Deaf Havana in their last album All These Countless Nights seemed to be moving into a new direction tonally, experimenting with what they could, effectively, get away with. Just the other day, they released their new single ‘Sinner’ from their newest upcoming album. Sinner lets us sink our teeth into…

All That She Can See (Carrie Hope Fletcher) | Book Review

This will be the third book of Carrie Hope Fletchers that I am reviewing and while I’m a little late to the party on this one, I am beginning to adore her defined style of writing. Carrie seems to lead her novels with an interpretation of Magic Realism, which is a style we unfortunately rarely…

Avalon – Gabrielle Aplin | E.P Review

As I first mentioned in my post From Sweet Songstress to Poetic Pop-Star; The Musical Evolution of Gabrielle Aplin, with each release, Gabrielle Aplin provides us with a new feeling of musical growth. Avalon continues this tradition, with an almost transformational atmosphere of freedom. Our first official introduction to Gabrielle’s new release was the song Waking Up…

÷ – Ed Sheeran | Album Review

It’s quite an interesting experience listening to this album, not just in terms of its quality, but because of it’s appeal. It seems to provide two types of intention to it’s tone and musicality: formulaic and poppy and also raw and nostalgic. Which is a strange and obviously dichotomous partnership on paper but seems to…

Lovesick | A TV Review

I’m not sure why or how it took me so long to discover Lovesick. I remember it coming out back in 2014 (although it was called Scrotal Recall at the time), but for some reason I didn’t immediately watch it. So, as is the case nowadays with many TV series, I found it browsing through…

All These Countless Nights – Deaf Havana | An Album Review

Deaf Havana have always been, for me, one of those bands that accompanied my teenage British countryside years. What I mean by that is that their music has seemed to relate to me, one way or another, because the tone often seemed to strike a note with me. As if their music had that naked stripped…

Legend (2015) | A Film Review

I have been meaning to get round to watching Legend ever since it came out, and now I finally have, so naturally here’s a review. Brian Helgeland, the films director and writer, brings us a new piece of entertainment based around the Kray twins in the form of the 2015 film. While I cannot speak…

Don’t Breathe (2016) | A Film Review

The new horror film Don’t Breathe from director Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead, Panic Attack) was the first film I’d seen in the cinema since Christmas. I was excited to again feel the experience of the cinema and the thrill of being frightened. Don’t Breathe, while occasionally indulging maybe a little too much in the tropes…
