Futurebrite – “Futurebrite EP” Review

Futurebrite is the name for dark electro pop duo Karen Kannen Correa and Josh Grant.

School of Seven Bells – “Ghostory” Review

A very new duo to fall on my ears are School of Seven Bells. Upon my first listen my first thoughts were harking back to Cocteau Twins and whilst that’s not far from the mark – Ghostory is a magical album. Opening with bouncy “The Night” you are splashed into some of the most gorgeously reverbed guitar […]
