The track surges and recedes and flows with a sparkle and vivacity: scaling guitars that sweep over the wash of percussion and strings: distance feedback squalls like seabirds in flight and there is a magnificent, pulse …

THERE is out there, in the wide pantheon of pop, a neat little galaxy reserved for the absolute auteur, the sort of artiste whose canon is basically unassailable, whose deftness and complexity is the subject of whispers. I mean, Kate Bush. She has to be in there; OK, not my bag personally, but. The Blue …

FOLLOWING his last album, 2018’s Beyond The End, dashing singer-songwriter Ed Harcourt has announced his ninth studio album, which is due in mid-September, will also be a set free of vocals – and a counterpoint to his previous. Monochrome To Colour will also be big, cinematic, and evocative, but Ed promises that this one will …
