Having grown up to the comforting sounds of Anthony Kiedis’ vocals, it is safe to say that anyone who knows me would say that I would have given up my life for these guys. Every time someone tells me that the Chilis have had their moment in the sun, or that they’re awful live, I’ve refuted as strongly as humanly possible. But after seeing them 10th December in Birmingham’s Genting Arena, I finally learned to admit the cold, hard, truth – my favourite band are dead.
Having grown up listening to the likes of Razorlight, the Kooks, and just about every major indie band in the early noughties, I have developed a certain soft spot for that marriage of mellowed out guitars and angsty song writing. Hell, that’s why I started my own music blog in the first place. But now in the age of electronica and leanings to more digitally influenced sound, I can’t help but wondering if the age of guitar-based indie is dead, and it is in fact becoming (dare I say it) classic rock?!

Wondering what to listen to this summer as you’re soaking up the rays on holiday or maybe you’re looking for something to listen to as you’re having a mega chill out session? Never fear, for cliché Music Bloggery is here! We’ve lined up a few
THE DRUMS ARE BACK! That’s right, you’re reading this correctly! After a three year absence in which guitarist Adam Kessler and drummer Connor Hanwick decided they wanted out, the original line-up are back (Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham) with their new single ‘Magic Mountain‘. Excuse
For those of you who have been living in a cave, Lana Del Rey is an American singer-songwriter who found fame when her single ‘Video Games’ went viral and then followed this up with her 2012 album ‘Born to Die’. Now, in 2014, she has already released a short film (Tropico, which is just about the most pretentious thing I have seen) and a number one album ‘Ultraviolence’.
