Splendour Festival 2016 - Live Review


Though bad weather usually curses outdoor events in Nottingham, summer finally decided to show its face on 23rd July and it has to of been one of the hottest days the city has had. 

Splendour Festival 2016 - Live Review

Once again, Wollaton Park played home to Splendour and it's perhaps not somewhere you would expect a festival to lie as it's a massive stately home where Deer freely roam the grounds, luckily the Deer don't seem to mind sharing the grounds for one day!

Splendour Festival is a very family friendly / orientated event that not only brings family and friends together but propels the younger generation onto the music scene and hopefully inspiring some to become budding new musicians.

Turin Brakes, Outbursts Album Review


Releasing their fifth album in 9 years, Turin Brakes return as wonderfully melodic as ever. It's often the case that bands such as Turin Brakes become irrelevant and slate this far down the line, however one listen to the albums opener and such preconceptions are blown away. The Sea Change is an acoustic delight, relentless strumming is met by perfect and precise finger picking before a glorious vocal washes over both to makeup a statement of intent from the Balham duo. Similarly Rocket Song follows the same code of conduct, a track that has single material written all over it. It features a typically high pitched Turin Brakes vocal as well as some soothing strings to soften the aggressive nature of the guitar playing. A chorus of 'This Love could smoulder or shower and spark' provides the icing on the cake of an epic song that marks an impressive and surprising start to Outbursts.

Paper Heart and The Invitation are a touch turgid and rather spoil the albums energetic momentum. However the rot stops with Will Power, a powerful, chorus heavy anthem that owes as much to its rhythm section as it does anything else. Apocolips also doesn't disappoint with its Beach Boys harmonies and fitting pianos. A slightly different vocal style is used on this track which works well in varying the album sound.
