TV made the soundtrack star

You may not even realise it, but a TV soundtrack has the ability to make or break a series. A good one can be the icing on the cake, but if the series is already average at best, a TV soundtrack that fails to compliment the various moods and storylines within, can turn it into…


Fatherson: Scot-rock takeover

It seems somewhat fitting that Fatherson have arrived in Norwich on World Mental Health Day. The band have always been candid with mental health and feelings of loneliness, painting a cinematic background that has united a cult fanbase in singalongs and earnest connection. Ever huge on record, the band face the challenge of keeping their…


You Me At Six: reVItalisation

Surrey-bred rock band, You Me At Six, have given us their sixth album, conveniently titled VI (just in case you forgot). Whilst eclectic would be stretching it, styles do switch throughout providing something for everyone as long as you like rock. It is refreshing to hear a band that have previously done so well by…

The importance of being well scored

Often, we barely notice them. Sometimes, the odd track moves us enough to search for its source online. Then there’s that one film. That one film where the soundtrack surpasses the content of the actual film itself, or at the very least completely enhances your experience of the feature. Picture a film with no sound….

The Music of Fallout 4

For a number of reasons music is hard to get right in video games. Firstly, there is the balance between the game’s original score and the collection of licensed music to get right. The original score helps to set the atmosphere and set the tone, with a number of set pieces which help you to…
