‘Sunset on This Generation’ by Amarionette [Album Review]

If you had told me 10 years ago, no even five years ago, that I would enjoy music that had a heavy synth influence I would have scoffed at you. I was too punk rock for that, I needed screeching guitars and loud vocals and intense drums. I didn’t listen to anything pop-y or dance-y […]

Greywind [Musician Interview]

Who inspired you to make music? Growing up the main bands we were inspired by were the likes of My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, Fall Out Boy, Jimmy Eat World and Thrice. What is your creative process like? Do you start with lyrics? Instruments? Concept? Usually I’d come up with the rough melody/lyrics of […]

Chasing Apparitions [Musician Interview]

Who inspired you to make music? Josey: Originally my inspiration to make music was Asking Alexandria. I remember stumbling upon them when I was younger & I fell in love with the image & the sound they had. Since then my inspirations have evolved, but they were the first band that made me want to […]

‘Sex, Death & The Infinite Void’ by Creeper [Album Review]

All of my favourite bands are the ones that change their sound enough from each album that you can pick out which songs belong to which album just from the sound the song has. I think evolving as a band is key to a band’s success–or at least their notoriety. The lead singles released for […]

‘What If…’ by Myosotis [Song Review]

Full disclosure: I was contacted by a music press company that has sent me information about this band and requested that I write a post about them. However, I have not received any compensation for it and it is still my decision to talk about them. Whenever I talk about how rock is my favourite […]

‘Be My End’ by Creeper [Song Review]

I’m a huge fan of bands who channel older musical sounds in their music. It’s a way of bringing in some of the fun and innocents that music used to have while incorporating a lot of the progression that has taken place this century. Creeper is one of those bands that I only heard about […]

‘The Bastards’ by Palaye Royale [Album Review]

This is one of those albums that I went into expecting to like it, especially after hearing the singles leading up to it, but for whatever reason didn’t expect it to be as good as it is. I’m genuinely floored by how much I enjoyed this album–it went beyond what I could have imagined from […]

‘Wayne’ by Des Rocs [Song Review]

I’ve always enjoyed a certain amount of chaos in my music. I think it probably has something to do with how much I hate loud noises. I know that probably seems counter-intuitive but hear me out. Music, especially punk and rock music, has a controlled chaos to it. It’s loud but with a specific purpose. […]

‘Gigaton’ by Pearl Jam [Album Review]

I feel like I need to preface this with the statement that I love Pearl Jam. Like, Lightning Bolt is one of my favourite albums of all time and Ten was one of the first albums I ever bought. So I was pretty excited to have some new music from them… I just… it’s not… […]

‘[Insert Girls Name Here]’ by The Luka State [Track Review]

This is a band that impresses me the more I hear from them. There’s just something about the gritty-quality of their music that clicks with me. Whether it’s the amazing vocals or the distorted guitars, this is a song I was instantly interested in. Plus, I love how the music video shows how much passion […]
