Song of the Day: It’s Time by Imagine Dragons

Well, I’m not going to lie, I found this song because of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, it’s used in the trailer for the film (which I am looking forward to because the book was awesome) and well, this song is great. (more…)


Song of the Day: Play On by Paloma Faith

We all know Paloma Faith is amazing, it’s no lie and all of you in the States better keep an ear out because I believe she’s on her way to spread her awesomeness there.

Anyway, onto the song. Faith has a plethora of fantastic songs at her disposal from New York to Upside Down, Picking up the Pieces to 30 Minute Love Affair, but I believe that Play On belongs on top of that pile. (more…)

Song of the Day: A Thousand Years Cover by The Piano Guys

New Video from Lizzie Nightingale

Lizzie Nightingale has released a video for her single Footsteps from her EP Tiny Teardrops.

Nightingale is an exciting new artist from Glasgow who has impressed plenty of people with her debut EP. Footsteps is a slow-paced track with heartfelt lyrics and an amazing vocal display. It has the potential to become a back catalogue favourite years from now.

I reviewed Tiny Teardrops a few weeks back and came away really excited by her talent. Scotland has been producing a lot of musical talent lately and Nightingale is one of the best.

If you want to hear more from her you can follow her on Twitter like her on Facebook or listen to her music on Bandcamp.

Song of the Day: Is This Love by Aiden Grimshaw

You have no idea how surprised I am that I am making an Aiden Grimshaw song my Song of the Day. I sent off a review of his debut album Misty Eye to Call Upon the Author and came away from it pleasantly surprised. I did not expect to enjoy his music but it’s actually rather catchy. (more…)

Song of the Day: Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men

Ahhh this is a lovely, jaunty track. Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men begins with a wonderfully quirky introduction and a steady rhythmic beat and then the vocal magic starts. (more…)
