Amber Run: live and unplugged in your living room

It’s the same old drill – the lights go out, the room goes quiet and suddenly the band Amber Run, the group you’ve waited for all night, enters the stage, the stroke of a guitar accompanying the band’s entrance. It’s like every other gig you’ve been to before, with just one very important difference – you’re not in the room with them, but sitting on … Continue reading Amber Run: live and unplugged in your living room

Live Review: White Lies @ O2 Academy Brixton, 07.12.19

Words: Oliver Childs | Photography: Jack Tobin A lot can happen in ten years. An artist can (and probably will) change their style of music to develop as an artist. White Lies are no different.

Words & Photos: Philip Giouras Ahead of two massive shows at London’s 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace this week, Vampire Weekend’s ‘Father Of The Bride’ World Tour came to Birmingham’s O2 Academy last night.

Picture This – Live At Roundhouse Review

Words: Nargis Borhan Playing their biggest London show ever, Irish pop band Picture This headline a sold-out show at The Roundhouse in Camden.
