Review: Trent-Jean – Manchester By The Sea

Review: Trent-Jean – Manchester By The Sea I think the next emoji they need to invent is just like the ‘heart-eyes’ emoji but one with heart-ears, because I would ‘heart-ears’ the shit out of Trent-Jean’s “debut” song ‘Manchester By The Sea’.  Look, I even went to the effort of creating one: n.b.

Review: Just A Number Gig

Review: Just A Number Gig 11.10.19 There’s not much that can come between a ‘Townie patron and their craft beer, but Just A Number managed to cause several delays for the outdoor drinkers as they tried to cross the D-floor to get to the bar.  Not because punters were in their way, but because they were distracted by what was happening on stage and literally stopped (to … Continue reading Review: Just A Number Gig

New Music: Swick

New Music: Swick Swick is back with a schmick new single called Decisions, which features the very-much-in-demand Kota Banks—who is obviously repaying him for his work on her mixtape ‘PRIZE’, released earlier this year. The tune is immediately recognisable as a product of Swick, with his signature bubbly, electro-pop sound behind Banks’ Charli XCX-style vocals and it is evident that these two are majorly in sync when it … Continue reading New Music: Swick
