Heart In Hand – A Beautiful White

With the recent release of A Beautiful White, and their outstanding title track, British quintet Heart In Hand are hitting up the road this month with Australia’s The Amity Affliction. ‘A Beautiful White’ is certainly a step up from all past material, this is shown instantly right from the very start of the guitar intro, which is soon joined by a bashful beat. Highlighted by Charlie Holmes’ reaching vocals that carry the pace, the track provides a classic HIH beat which is filled with uplifting changes that are left implanted in your head.

Though at first hinting at a typical (yet nonetheless strong) electronic number, Bonobo’s latest track ‘Flashlight’ soon opens up to the idea of a [...]

SINGLE REVIEW: Caribou – Can’t Do Without You

Originally posted on Noise Cannon as part of the Noise of the Week feature: http://noisecannon.com/2014/10/13/noise-of-the-week-61014/More often than not electronic music is passed off as club music with very little consideration of anything else it may have to offer. Caribou has successfully challenged this notion with ‘Can’t Do Without You’, the opening track for latest album Our [...]

SINGLE REVIEW: Paolo Nutini – Iron Sky

Originally posted on Noise Cannon as part of the Noise Of The Week Feature: http://noisecannon.com/2014/10/06/noise-of-the-week-29092014/Iron Sky from Paolo Nutini’s latest album Caustic Love is straight up class. With excruciatingly soulful vocals and an extremely dramatic melody, this single stands out as a theatrical masterpiece amongst the rest of the album. Nutini’s voice is rich with passion, [...]
