Single Reviews


Two Wounded Birds – All We Wanna Do / Midnight Wave

This band are instantly more believable than anything you’ll have heard so far

On the soundtrack, Turner has distanced himself from the energetic, northern indie music that shot him and the lads to fame over five years ago

Trophy Wife – The Quiet Earth /White Horses (Moshi Moshi)

The EP as a whole is more mellow, chilling and isolated than euphoric, but it still has a human warmth and depth to it.

The retro electronica of the title track fuses a vintage synth arpeggio with atmospheric textures which produce a brilliantly moody dance vibe

A promising EP packed with catchy songs that are bound to be a hit at this summers forthcoming festivals
