Sunset Sons Finishes Their UK Tour On a High

Entertainment, Music, Uncategorized
After hearing them perform last year as a supporting act for Imagine Dragons, Sunset Sons have grown to the top of the list as one of my favourite bands, ever. Reporter: Alex Clement | Sub-Editor: Chelsea Jobe I have now seen them play live four times, and I am in love with them even more now than I was almost a year ago. The band consists of Rory Williams, lead singer and keyboard player; Robin Windram, a guitarist; Pete Harper, a bass player; and Jed Laidlaw, a drummer.  They originate from the South of France and have climbed the music ladder. Since their last gig as a supporting act, they have gone on to headline their own tour. From March to August of this year, taking a break in September then to our surprise, went on another tour in the UK this month. After their last

Twin Peaks took time out from their European tour to play a gig in London - for free. Reporter: Chelsea Jobe | Sub-Editor: Alex Clement American indie band Twin Peaks performed a free gig at Urban Outfitters in Shoreditch last night. After playing at nightclub Scala the night before, the band decided to hold an impromptu gig. But is there a difference between a paid and a free gig? Here is a list of things I noticed at the Twin Peaks gig: You probably don’t know the band… Because it’s free, you go to events and gigs willy-nilly. Not even knowing who or what you will see. The only information I knew about Twin Peaks was the crime television series. Not useful or relevant at all. But I was pleasantly surprised by them, an indie rock band from Chicago. I will definitely be

What is music for in TV? It’s there to help set the scene, it’s an instrumental method to enhance your viewing experience. And it’s one of the most important components to TV. Here are a handful of shows with distinctive soundtracks to match: Reporter: Larry Gliddon | Sub-Editor: Andrew Whiteford 1. Stranger Things: It’s about a group of children who are all really good friends but one of them gets trapped in a different world and everybody works together to set him free. There’s a lot of monsters, fighting and gore - something you wouldn’t really associate with a group of children, but the main themes of the show is love and friendship, and a wholesome show deep down. Set in Indiana circa 1980’s, the soundtrack is a consistent synthesiser fest. All in a key to emphasise dread. Not to me

So it’s that time of the year again. Get your tissues at the ready, it’s the final of The Great British Bake Off. Reporter: Alex Clement | Sub-Editor: Sasha Wickenden Live blogging was easy they said, not when it's the final of the Bake Off. Where do we even begin? 20:00: The first thing we all like to hear on a Wednesday evening is the sound of Mel and Sue, naturally. Their familiar heartwarming voices narrate the start as they introduce the show, one last time. Then it begins, the magic that is the Bake Off theme tune. This reminds you that you no longer have time to finish making that cup of tea, it’s started and you need to sit down and watch. We start off with Jane. Her flashbacks from her bakes from day one, then Candice then Andrew. How cute. Candice makes a comment on h
