Interview // Liela Moss (The Duke Spirit)

Nov

Kathleen Coyle interviews Liela Moss about the band’s latest EP, ‘Serenade’.

‘Serenade’ feels like the natural successor to ‘Follow’, which was more upbeat than previous tracks on ‘KIN’. Heartbreak reverberated throughout the album, but a serenade suggests a celebration of love. Will the next album be more sanguine in tone?

I think most of the lyrics that tumble out of my head, oscillate between an optimistic vision of the triumph of humanity over fear, or the pessimism of losing love and being separate from the whole. So regarding the next record as it emerges, well it will doubtless peer into both of those realms, and come out blinking!

Who She Is And Why You Should Listen To Her: Jessy Lanza

Sep
09

Samantha Spaccasi brings us the first in a new series exploring artists who shape and push the boundaries of a genre.

I’ve always been a huge fan of electronic music. My father introduced me to artists like Gary Numan, Brian Eno, and Kraftwerk at a young age. But as I grew older and more aware of the unequal power dynamics between cisgender, straight men and non-men, I realised that the genre is heavily dominated by men, and the media is largely to blame for that, as the press tends to ignore the large and multifarious contributions of women electronic musicians. To correct this oppressive pattern, it’s important for those involved in music journalism to bring to light these great artists that have and continue to shape and push the boundaries of the genre. For my introductory post for the feature WHO SHE IS AND WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO HER, I will be discussing Jessy Lanza, one of my favourite up-and-coming electronic musicians.

Guest Blog // LAW HOLT

Musician Law Holt writes about the making of City, her latest release.

We needed music. Fast. Tim London and I had spent the summer of 2015 making an album of crafted, soulful pop called Gone. City began as an experiment, a reaction to what we’d just done. We were challenging ourselves to come up with new and inventive pop music to re-introduce Law back into an already crowded scene. At this point I was living between two capitals (Edinburgh and London). On New Years Day 2016, I got on a train to Waverley from Kings Cross determined to be returning a few days later with something brand new.

Rebecca Moore interviews The Anchoress ahead of her show in Glasgow next week.

Congratulations on the release of Confessions of A Romance Novelist. What has the response been like? How do you feel post-release?

Thank you! I make a rule not to read reviews (for my own sanity) but of course I’ve seen the pull-quotes on the website and it’s nice to see that the response has been, on the whole, a very welcoming one. It’s a relief to have the album finished and out there after such a long journey to get to this point. I’m very much focused on the next album project now and not losing the momentum of working. How do I feel post-release? Busy…
