Carolyn Huane

Trent Vu It’s nearing the end of the year. It’s getting too hot for my liking. I’ve even started to see some people in my neighbourhood putting up Christmas lights. Coles is probably starting to sell hot cross buns already. Who knows. All I know is that, while it hasn’t been my favourite year for […]

12 Best Songs to Cry to
Carolyn Huane

CW: death, AIDS, suicide By Trent Vu I’m a crier. I cry at everything. I’ll immediately start bawling my eyes out when I’m thrown the slightest inconvenience.

Concert Review: Aydan Calafiore Live in Melbourne
Carolyn Huane

By Trent Vu I watch a lot of TV. Probably a bit too much of it. There’s no show I get invested in more than The Voice Australia. I’ve watched it with an almost religious devotion since the reality singing show first aired in 2012. I transitioned from an adoring viewer to an avid fan when […]

Carolyn Huane

Matilda Morley The much-fabled death of disco was perhaps one of the most heinous musical crimes of the twentieth century, and no sooner than its bedazzled casket was lowered into the ground did the general public collectively turn their backs in shame.

Carolyn Huane

by Lucette Moulang The hum of energy was electric as fans lined the outside wall of the Forum, craning their necks to glimpse the doorway and a possible sighting of Oh Wonder’s Anthony and Josephine.

Brockhampton: The SATURATION Albums From Worst to Best
Carolyn Huane

Muna Shauki Move over One Direction (R.I.P), N-Sync and BTS, because today I need to talk to you about Brockhampton. In a nutshell, Brockhampton is a more diverse, equally charming One Direction – but with BARS. In 2017, they literally saturated listeners with music by pumping out three full-length albums as part of their SATURATION […]

Review: Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life
Carolyn Huane

Lucette Moulang Diving headfirst back into the indie rock charts, Liverpool band The Wombats have delivered a polished and likeable album, reminiscent of their earlier sound and interjected with a handful of high calibre tracks.
