LIVE REVIEW: The Offspring, OVO Hydro, Glasgow, 27/11/2021

Having been rattling and jonesing for live music since the early part of 2020 when the idea of a global shutdown was nothing more than a nightmarish concept we were there early for The Offspring's set, determined, hellbent and absolutely sure that we wouldn’t miss a note, a lick or beat of their set. And over more than 90-glorious minutes, SoCal's finest never let us down.

ALBUM REVIEW: Volumes – Happier?

After teasing fans with singles, 'Weighted', 'Pixelated' and 'Holywater', Volumes could just be the masters of anticipation. Their latest release 'Happier?' has cut the cord of a four-year long drip-feed since their last album 'Different Animals', which debuted in 2017. With major changes to the Los Angeles band since then, will 'Happier?' bring a certain nostalgia or a new beginning?

EP REVIEW: K.Flay – Outside Voices

Whilst preparing to tour with PVRIS in 2022, genre-defying, Grammy-nominated Illinoisan Kristine Flaherty, also known as K.Flay, has unveiled her new five-track EP 'Outside Voices'. Contrasting her previous EP, which was released this April, 'Inside Voices' saw collaborations with pop-punk superstar Travis Barker and Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello. Although, 'Outside Voices' continues to comment on intricacies of life through K.Flay’s signature sound of alt-pop vocals, indie influences and lo-fi vibes, this time it’s with a 90s grunge edge.

EP REVIEW: Zebrahead – III

With a new line-up and a new EP, zebrahead have a lot on their hands. This EP comes after over a dozen studio albums and could very well mark a new beginning for the band. This means juggling a lot of expectations from fans new and old, but can they pull it off?

LIVE REVIEW: Rise Against, Lyoness, PRYZM, Kingston, 17/11/2021

Chicago punk rockers Rise Against visited Kingston to play an acoustic show in support of their Nowhere Generation album and Nowhere Sessions EP. Projects influenced in part by the social and economic troubles their younger fans face. So, it was fitting to see so many of those younger fans waiting in line at PRYZM ahead of their performance.
