Glastonbury weather forecast – could be worse…

The full Glastonbury line-up schedule was released this week, but instead of focus on that we’ll focus on what everyone is really interested in – the Glastonbury weather forecast.

No Strings

Watch: Chloe Howl – ‘No Strings’ video

With lyrics like ‘Fuck your no strings… I hope I have twins’ newcomer Chloe Howl marked herself out as a pop star with a difference when ‘No Strings’ was debuted on her recent Rumour EP. Each of the tracks on the EP got a video, but now ‘No Strings’ has graduated to ‘official video’ status. […]

King City

Watch: Swim Deep – ‘King City’ video

It’s not hard to work out where the inspiration for this video came from. Taking the lyric ‘With the sun on my back it’s a nice day’, director Georgia Hudson decks the B-town band out in flowery shirts and sends them off on a roadtrip in a convertible. Lots of fun ensues, obviously. Watch the […]

Watch: Lana Del Rey – ‘Shades Of Cool’ video

Lana Del Rey’s much-hyped new album Ultraviolence has finally arrived, and to mark its release the US singer has shared the video for album highlight ‘Shades Of Cool’.
