Anti-Bullying Week 2018

Let’s talk about bullying. It’s better out of your head than in it. This week is Anti-Bullying Week throughout the UK, we wanted to talk about it. Whether it’s happening to you or someone you know, face-to-face or online we want this post to be helpful so you can make your voice heard. Everyone goes through some sort of bullying at some stage in their lives. You go through questioning everything that you do and whether you're going to be bullied for it or not and whether or not anyone's gonna pick up on it or say anything to you.

The trio: Matt Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard new album was released on the 9th November 2018, through Warner Bros. and Helium-3. It consists of 11 tracks in standard album, however the deluxe version has five bonus tracks.

Am I A Girl? Album Review

YouTube has produced its fair share of artists and personalities, but none are as equally puzzling and intriguing as That Poppy. Halloween saw the release of Poppy’s new album titled “Am I A Girl?” and the track list immediately took away from the star’s usual tone. Her first album back in 2016- “Bubblebath” -was a much more upbeat, reggae influenced release full of catchy pop songs disguising a commentary on the issues of being a pop star and selling out to corporations in the modern day.

Most fans of Poppy will know that her entire image and

Mac DeMarco Concert Review

Highly anticipating Mac to come on stage, me and my friends stumbled into the Victoria Warehouse and finally got out of the rain.

5 Seconds of Summer - Tour Review

27th October 2018 marked the fourth show of the ‘Meet You There tour’ of 5 Seconds of Summer at the 02 Apollo Manchester. Before the show started, I attended a soundtrack experience where I got to take part in a Q&A learning different things about the band. They told the crowd that they will be unsigned from their record label on 16th November and will be finding a new label in the new year. A young girl asked if they could collaborate with any bands from Manchester and they all agreed after discussing different bands that there wouldn’t be anyone. Calum said his favourite song to play live is ‘Talk Fast’ and Michaels is ‘If walls could talk’. The question that I asked was ‘ If you could liv
