PVRIS’s largest headliner to date at O2 Academy Brixton was insane. I haven’t been to this venue since Panic! At The Disco played here, but PVRIS really owned the stage. Being sat in the Circle meant that we had an amazing view of the entire stage and the energetic crowd below. There were theatrics, a killer light show, and just fabulous performances.
Three friends from Oxford make the alternative indie trio ‘Filth’. The band are releasing their brilliant EP ‘Day In Day Out’ September 21st. Perfect for fans of Arctic Monkeys, these boys are ready to make their mark. Filth spoke to us about their new EP, BBC Introducing and Apple Crumble.
This unique and crazily wild album has uprooted the music world. Mansionz is the musical project of Blackbear and Mike Posner and sees them collaborate with many other artists. This album is a sincere mismatch of heartfelt self criticism and lyrics that will leave you questioning everything. Importantly, it’s an album that finds its way to your heart no matter what music you enjoy.
Christmas came early this year, November is just coming to an end and Dallon Weekes has released another Christmas song. ‘Christmas Jambz‘ was my jam last year and I see this being the same. ‘Please Don’t Jump (It’s Christmas) is infectious. Give it a listen:
Keaton Henson is an alternative musician, visual artist and poet. His personality shines through in each and every one of his artistic endeavours, be it classical music, a verse of poetry or his haunting lyrics. Henson suffers from anxiety and as a result rarely plays shows, but ‘The Pugilist’ is yet another reminder that there’s more brilliance to come.
It has been a rumour for a while that twenty one pilots would feature as part of a major movie soundtrack – and here it is. Their new track ‘Heathens’ joins the likes of Panic! At The Disco, Eminem and Imagine Dragons on the Suicide Squad Soundtrack and they just dropped an amazing music video for the first single from the soundtrack.
Vesperteen is the new project of Colin Rigsby, who you may recognise from House of Heroes. I first discovered Vesperteen thanks to Reel Bear Media, who filmed a brilliant music video for the song ‘Obsess Possess’ (and Josh Dun shout outs) and have been a fan ever since. Colin took the time to answer some questions about his latest EP, what he wants to achieve through his music and the Columbus music scene.
It’s no secret that I love Twenty One Pilots. But this show blew me away, last time I was surrounded by tall people and couldn’t see much, this time I was sat in the balcony with a perfect view and I don’t think life could ever get better. As usual the O2 Academy Birmingham was lovely, the staff were incredibly friendly and the security guards did a fantastic job of looking after the crowd.
Now that it’s December we can bring out our Christmas trees and awful jumpers and get in the Christmas spirit. If there’s one thing that really makes it feel like Christmas it’s Christmas songs – so in the spirit of giving I share with you my favourite Christmas songs right now. ‘Christmas Jambz’ by Dallon Weekes is a two track masterpiece that will undoubtedly make you smile this holiday season.
