Tessa Ryan
No comments

Melbourne band Pearls has just released an album that’s sure to leave a lasting impression on listeners. For a debut album to make such a bold statement about a band’s identity is a huge achievement in itself, but Ellice, Cass and Ryan have made the task seem a lot easier than it probably is. Seemingly…

album review: leah capelle

Marissa Paine
3 comments

People are probably surprised when Leah Capelle tells them she’s 19. Not that she doesn’t look the part, but the Chicago native has a voice that carries the sorrow, heartbreak and wisdom that come with age and experience. Her debut, self titled album is a solid offering of introspective tracks, both pretty and full of…

ep review: bloom, the morning birds

Marissa Paine
No comments

The Morning Birds  ‘Bloom’ isn’t an album you sing along to, or even one you put on when you’re getting ready to go out for the night. It is, however, sonically compelling. ‘Bloom’ is a concept album, brought to life not just by the Californian trio, but by noted DJs from around the world. I’ve…

album review: going to hell, the pretty reckless

Tessa Ryan
No comments

If you know Taylor Momsen from Gossip Girl but aren’t familiar with The Pretty Reckless, you might be surprised to know that it’s her voice you’re hearing when you press play. She is often compared to Courtney Love, perhaps because she’s a blonde with feisty vocals and killer stage presence. The Pretty Reckless made a…

Eloise Baker
No comments

  Released late February, Phantogram’s Voices evokes a warning or premonition, with its soaring synths, determined vocals, sharp hip-hop beats and the frequent themes of death, stars, love and dreams. Similar to the Nine Inch Nails album The Fragile, it makes you feel as though you are moving even when you’re not. A complex and…

With the Broods EP, Georgia and Caleb Nott prove – like so many before them – that something special happens when you make music with your sibling. Maybe it’s that thicker than water bond or maybe it’s the fact that if anyone can tell you off, it’s your family, but there is a harmony to…
