Tunesday Review: Villainy’s New Album ‘Dead Sight’ Will Give Lorde A Run For Her Money

Remember that song with the line ‘I think I’m going Japanese, I really think so.’ Well, I think I’m going to go Kiwi after listening to Auckland natives Villainy’s new album Dead Sight. Move over Lorde, Villainy could easily be the next Kiwis to dominate international airwaves.

Review: Inovo Go Above And Beyond On Debut EP

Inovo’s self-titled debut EP is a vortex of atmospheric rock that we’re more than happy to get lost in.
