On 4th May, Olivia SMurray saw Loyle Carner live at Trinity Arts Centre, Bristol.
Whoever is familiar with the music of Marina Diamandis will probably know by now that she is incredibly good at reinventing herself through her music. The half Welsh, half Greek artist has been exploring very different concepts ever since she put out her first record; we’re used to a new “era”, to a drastic change […]
A true return to form for Breezy Lovejoy Anderson .Paak and his boys. ‘Yes LAWD!’. I have been a die-hard Paak fanboy since Malibu and was enamoured with the electric chemistry between Paak and The Free Nationals, the gospel influences, the bells and chimes, the syrupy basslines and Anderson’s untouchable talent.

I first saw the six piece band in 2015, supporting Frank Turner at the Southampton Guildhall alongside their fellow Xtra Mile comrade, Will Varley.
