If you were one of those who, like me, was totally mesmerised and enraptured by Helen Ballentine’s (aka Skullcrusher) gorgeous eponymous debut EP of last summer, then you will have been yearning for more ever since. Well, good news then, that the singer-songwriter has announced her next EP, entitled “Storm in Summer” and released its …

Swedish singer-songwriter, rambler and travelling tattoo artist, H.B. Nielsen, follows up 2020’s debut album “Grand Opening” with his new EP, “It’s Today Again” which is out today.

Nadine Khouri The Salted Air There is a delicate quality to Nadine Khouri’s voice when you are first introduced to her; a hushed, bewitching quality that is equally earnest as it is powerful. It’s a contradiction to read, that I am well aware, but it is such a juxtaposition which one would believe lead previous …

It’s been several months since the release of Bacchus’ last EP ‘The Rich & The War’. He’s clearly a sensitive soul, The four tracks that made up his last release followed in the steps of acts like David Gray and Damian Rice, stripping things back and making top quality acoustic music. His new track is …
