There is a moment this evening when Elena Tonra politely apologises for forgetting to turn on her distortion. "Sorry, that sounded a bit shit didn't it" she remarks, but in truth I think it may actually be quite preposterous to imagine that Daughter could ever sound bad. The rest of
THE LUMINEERS MAKE A BIG RETURN TO EDINBURGH
It’s been almost three years since The Lumineers performed in the capital of Scotland, but it has been worth the wait, the band have released their second studio album earlier this year which has been a success.

Having been incredibly impressed by Rat Boy’s Kendal Calling set, I was eagerly anticipating his headline show at Manchester’s Albert Hall and it did not disappoint. There was a sense of juxtaposition between the very formal setting that is the Albert Hall and Rat Boy’s anarchic style but it only
Many concerts start out strong but end in predictability.
Not so with Angel Olsen. Here is a voice with ability of rendering attendees motionless. Inside Toronto's The Mod Club is no exception. Her divine, otherworldly gift has enraptured everyone.
Brimming with a sold-out crowd, she proceeds to showcase several cuts from her
The familiar topic of Brexit floats around the room before an unhinged front man suggest that the band get on with the music. For a bruised working man's club, Queens Social was fittingly transported back in time to a punk era where topless crowd surfers, aggressive mosh- pits and a
