Craig Payne - Single Review: Just Like Yesterday

01 Oct 2018 // A review by Jessie Armstrong
There is nothing bad that I can say about Just Like Yesterday, the new single from Christchurch Rock musician Craig Payne - the lyrics are incredibly catchy, and the backing track is light and makes me think of road trips in Summer while listening to this.

I know Summer is little while away but with lines like “the times we had, it’s just like yesterday” I’m picking this to be my Summer song, I simply love how well the music and lyrics flow together and I believe it speaks volumes about Craig's experience as a musician. Another part I love about this single in particular is the opening itself, instantaneously I’m reminded of I Started A Joke by The Bee Gees and the comparison is nothing short of a compliment.

In a little under four minutes in length, it’s incredibly easy to just keep this song on repeat and singalong, in fact I challenge you not to. Craig Payne is definitely an artist I’m going to keep an eye on and I suggest you do the same.

Go check Just Like Yesterday out for yourself on Soundcloud.

The opening track from Anxiety Club's new EP is titled Holes In My Skin, and within an instant I was in love with it and felt a connection from the first line “when the lights went out I said to myself I will never be here again”. Who among us hasn’t felt like that at some point?

Oyawa - EP Review: The Mary Anning EP
31 Jul 2018 // by Jessie Armstrong
Oyawa is a three-piece indie/alternative band hailing from Auckland, although the members come from all over, and is made up of the collective efforts of Brett Garrity, Miles Gillett and Nikki Ngatai.  Formed in late 2011, this isn’t the first time I’ve heard of Oyawa and after listening to this EP I’ll be keeping an eye out for their upcoming shows - I suggest you do the same.
