Blancmange & Bernholz Live

Gorilla, Manchester 10 May 2019
Last year I heard Blancmange music for the very first time through the band’s new record WANDERLUST. For me, it’s rare to discover an electronic pop record which communicates with real meaning while boasting genuine musical adventure and distinction. It was also a big surprise to learn that the original band [...]

More often it’s a wallet-friendly trip to a different country, to combine music with local [...]

David Gray Live in Liverpool

Liverpool Philharmonic. 26 March 2019
“With this album, my default position was to do everything differently. I didn’t think ‘this would be a good hook or ‘these lyrics could work for a chorus’. I was keen to get away from narrative. Instead of writing melodies, I looked for phrases with a natural cadence, so that the [...]
