Marina Bloom and Moving Stuff - Single Review: This Feeling

07 Feb 2018 // A review by ShelleySketch

If youíve heard of Marina Bloom and Moving Stuff before then this is not a track you would have expected. This is such an upbeat dance track which is different from the music she has previously released such as Seven Seas and Heroes. But it is a good surprise. You canít help but bop and move along to the track as it is catchy and fun. This Feeling came out at the right time as it is definitely a track for summer.

It appears they have chosen a lot of different instruments and samples to use which at first seem a bit overdone, but then mix together well. Marinaís voice is nearly at the same level as the music and is autotuned but it works well with the music. When listening to this track with headphones I found the music plays between both ears. This Feeling made me think of a mix of a few artists such as Kesha, The Veronicas and David Guetta.

This new track also makes me feel like Iím at a club and Iím sure this is a track that DJs should add to their list. Marina Bloom and Moving Stuff seem to be branching out and I would say This Feeling is a good start.

4/5 stars

Gig Review: Drax Project @ The Powerstation, Auckland - 12/05/18
16 May 2018 // by ShelleySketch
On Saturday I arrived to The Powerstation, to see Drax Project play to a sold-out crowd, for the second night in a row! Due to this show being all ages, there were 2 long lines reaching out in opposite directions which steadily minimised as crowds made their way in.

Openside - Single Review: No Going Back
03 May 2018 // by ShelleySketch
Openside seem to constantly be on our radar, opening for bands like All Time Low and Fall Out Boy and just consistently releasing music. They released their EP Push Back, followed by I Feel Nothing and now we have their new single No Going Back.

Gig Review: Sleeping With Sirens @ The Powerstation, Auckland - 29/4/18
01 May 2018 // by ShelleySketch
Itís a Sunday night in Auckland and this show was adjusted accordingly, with set times being even earlier than scheduled. 5pm doors was a weird experience but at the same time it was a welcomed one.

As I arrived at Ding Dong Lounge it seemed rather quiet. But you could see it was going to pick up when a stag-do stumbled out.
