REVIEW: Time, Conrad Ashton

Time,’ the latest single by Conrad Ashton, is a passionate folk and pop-influenced rock track. It has a vibrant and relatable feel and is perfect for anyone wanting to hear an enticing fusion of genres.
 
Lyrically, it’s a poetic and intriguing song which demands more than one listen. Conrad manages to create classic rock energy whilst still fitting in fluidly with the modern music scene. He describes his genre as “beyond basic rock and roll” which perfectly categorises this track.

"Beyond basic rock and roll"

Conrad says his goal for song-writing “is to spread the emphasis and the effect of each song to the listeners’ head, heart and body.” With a strong beat and catchy melodies, this track is definitely worth the listen for that reason. Although there are, of course, currently no gigs, he’d definitely be one to catch live once they are.

And the new album Sticky, the fourth album from the band, is the result.

REVIEW: England Screams, the debut album from Strange Bones

Strange Bones, the riots rave punks hailing for Blackpool, England, are a prime example of a band grafting their way to the top. This band has been built on the DIY ethos of the punk scene, the energy of 90s underground raves, and the classic formula to make it big in the music industry: show up, do what you do best, and make sure people come back for more.
