Victoria - Pompeii     Rock, Pop 25/01/2019
Victoria, new band featuring members of Youth Group, The Vines and Songs, unveil debut single ‘Pompeii’.
"Pompeii" explores the ugliness of a band break-up, lyrically likening the suffocating feeling that comes from being trapped in a toxic relationship to being buried under the choking ashes of Pompeii. Musically though it’s a more laid-back affair. The playing is breezy and laconic, with Emerson-Elliott’s guitar shining over the top. It’s the perfect counter to Doyle’s hypnotic top line.

Beau Lightning - Last Night     Rock 24/01/2019
Beau Lightning is a rock'n roll artist whose sound has been likened to artists like Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood and Wolfmother.
The track is using an experience I had when I was about eight, as a metaphor to talk about, or ponder the existence of a higher divinity. I thought I saw a ghost or demon or spirit outside my bedroom window. I’m asking myself, did that experience change me, or what I believe, or did I dream the whole thing.
