Carly Paoli, ‘My Christmas Dream Is You’ – Single Review

Bowie, ‘Breaking Glass’, 40th Anniversary Edition – Single Review

Bowie, ‘Breaking Glass’, 40th Anniversary Edition – Single Review

As a bit of a music fanatic, and a huge David Bowie fan, it is one of my greatest regrets that I did not get to see him perform live.

The difference between the album and the live version of songs,…

The Wombats, ‘Oceans’ – Single Review

The Wombats are back with the Extended Version of their fantastic fourth album Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life. Following on from the previously released ‘Bee-Sting’ the lads have dropped the nostalgia infused, 80’s inspired track ‘Oceans’ From the get go, the glossy synth is incredibly reminiscent of Bowie, namely ‘Let’s Dance’, the overuse of synths works really well, the disparity between intense vocals and instrumentals to relaxed synth beats sorta relates to the ebbs…
