Music Submissions 3: Pylo / History Majors / Lost Swimmer / The Vals and more…

  Pylo – Young  / The Woman (Song / EP) I really enjoyed this track, and it struck me as Kodaline but much better.

Music Submissions 1: History Majors / Art Contest / The Traps / Amatus

  Sometimes I receive music from artists, labels or PR companies which I don’t end up reviewing. This is down to a number of reasons, the majority of which are my own restrictions. It’d be a struggle to review everything I get sent in the amount of detail that I’d like to, and as a… Read More Music Submissions 1: History Majors / Art Contest / The Traps / Amatus
