Gala/Summer Eclipse

Ok this is weird one. It was 1997 and I wasn’t even a teenager when a super dance hit made its way through the charts and filled european radios all summer long. It was italian born and US raised pop dance singer Gala, with her greatest success “Freed from Desire”. It ran along for a […]

Golden Oldies on the road: 1 Giant Leap / My Culture

Here I am, stuck in traffic on a bus from Stansted airport to LDN. I’m back from a quick trip home to my family and friends, and I feel like I have a song that suits the moment perfectly. It’s a golden oldie taken from the 2002 archive. At the time Take That were only […]

Golden Oldies: The Backstreet Boys… Then

Post by Paola Once you lived the nineties there is no chance that you will encounter another beautiful, sparkly and powerful era, especially when talking about music. When I think of nineties, my mind gets invaded by lights, colors, clashing of sounds, red and blonde curtained hair, Backstreet Boys. Yes, because BSB wasn’t just a […]

Goo Goo Dolls/Slide

Nothing says 90’s more than this video. The rhythm, the hairdo, the shirt, the guitar.. also the diner parking lot! This Goo Goo Dolls single, from the “Dizzy Up The Girl” album, is a great romantic pop rock song that was the soundtrack of many high school crushes. And it still sounds awesome!   Niente […]

Graham Candy / Holding Up Balloons

Here’s a fresh new song to get us going this spring! This time it’s a kiwi artist called Graham Candy, with his latest track “Holding Up Balloons”. First thing that jumps up in our minds: his voice! It’s so light and delicate, almost feminine. In his other songs out now this detail is even more accentuated, […]

Great Good Fine OK / Too Much To Handle

Following the mood of the previous post about this summer’s anthems, here’s one of our latest discoveries, that’s going straight into our playlists. An indie duo from Brooklyn, their name is Great Good Fine OK, and they’ve been around with their EPs since last year. The song that caught my attention was “Without You”, that stood out […]

The Griswolds / Be Impressive

The Griswolds are a young Sydney-based band that has been doing good music since 2012. Last year they have produced their first full album “Be Impressive”, that went pretty well “down under” and in the US. I went through it and browsed the old songs as well, and their easy going indie rock, sometimes pop […]

Gwen Stefani/Baby Don’t Lie

Gwen Stefani is back! After many years from her last solo single, “Early winter”, she’s now back on the radio with “Baby don’t lie”. Must say, it has something exotic with it that I can’t quite recognise, but it works well. I find the chorus missing a bit of identity, but I guess it’s because […]
