Nearer My God: How Foxing’s new album is so much more than its “sound”

Nearer My God: How Foxing’s new album is so much more than its “sound”

One of my favourite things about music has always been the way in which we consume it. I have never cared about perfection, nor how to define a sound. I often struggle to describe bands to people based on what they sound like. In a world full of such technology it just makes more sense to pull out your phone, open Spotify and press play. However if you want to talk about what the band are about, what they mean to me, or to others, then I am absolutely here.

Van William – Countries : VH Album Review

Van William – Countries : VH Album Review

I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a country music fan, but during a writing slump I decided to pick up this review opportunity and it was surprisingly inspiring.

Though not exactly my taste in music, I was enamoured by the passion behind this album and the feelings that it evoked. Countries is a truly profound album with a heartfelt story as Van William explores heartbreak in many ways, from the loss of his family business, to the ending of a six year relationship.

Wolf Alice – Visions of a Life

Wolf Alice – Visions of a Life

Where do I start with this band? From the moment I heard ‘Moaning Lisa Smile’, I knew I was hooked. It was just one of many songs introduced to me by my boyfriend at the time. Our tastes in music were fairly matched, and he especially had a good ear for bands that I would adore.

Superfood – Bambino || VH Album Review

Superfood – Bambino || VH Album Review

It has been nearly a week since Superfood released their absolute belter of a second album and I still can’t get enough. I hadn’t written anything in a little while and wanted to get back on track with it all. I think it’s safe to say that the press release for Bambino came just in time.

Fazerdaze – Morningside || VH Album Review

Fazerdaze – Morningside || VH Album Review

If you read my post about the Tashaki Miyaki album, you might remember that I mentioned another dream pop album that I received on the same day. Well, I can finally share it with you! I fell in love with Morningside by Fazerdaze instantly, and was incredibly happy to be able to listen to it way over a month before it was to be released. That said, with all the time came a lot of procrastination, so when it came to writing up my review, I had listened to this album perhaps a little too much.

Kings of Leon – Because of the Times || VH 10 Albums at 10 (#6)

Kings of Leon – Because of the Times || VH 10 Albums at 10 (#6)

I recently wrote a retrospective review of Kings of Leon’s third album Because of the Times, as part of Vulture Hound’s 10 Albums at 10 series. As you can probably guess it takes a look at ten albums from ten years ago, my choice being a Kings of Leon classic, with the likes of ‘Knocked Up’ and ‘Charmer’ on the track-list.

Leif Vollebekk – Twin Solitude || VH Album Review

Leif Vollebekk – Twin Solitude || VH Album Review

It’s always nice to get a little recognition from a PR, to the point that they come directly to you in regards to reviewing one of their artists. It’s just the kind of ego boost that every writer needs. So when Ellie from Stay Loose sent me over Leif Vollebekk’s latest album Twin Solitude, I was absolutely up for giving it a listen.
