MØ – Pilgrim

Scandinavian music has come a long way from the days of ABBA and A-Ha. In recent years the region has been at the forefront of dance, electro, pop and folk, serving up a seemingly never-ending list of catchy, feel good music. Today’s artist MØ (AKA Karen Marie Ørsted) hails from the Danish capital Copenhagen and […]

Mausi – Move

After spending quite some time focussing on Australian shores, today we finally move back to the UK and collapse exhausted into the warm arms of Newcastle-based quartet ‘Mausi’. Having gained much attention through their song ‘Sol’ last year, Mausi were on many people’s look-out lists for 2013 and with their new track ‘Move’, they are […]

Lorde – Royals

At the tender age of 17 I was a pretty accomplished individual. I had already managed to figure out how the internet catered for teenage boys. I had already tallied up as many hours stood outside the classroom as I ever did in it. I had discovered that Jim Bean made my head go all […]
