23rd February 2017 | BRIT Awards 2017
The BRIT Awards are over for another year, but with such a massive year of music behind us, there’s still time to reminisce and enjoy the songs that 2016 bestowed upon us.
The BRIT Awards 2017 were more diverse than ever before, and with such deserving winners, come some acts who didn’t leave with a gong… that we believe should have.
We have put together a playlist of the nights biggest winners… and some of the losers as well to highlight just how massive the BRIT Awards 2017 were.

19th February 2017 | Music
19 year-old Connar Ridd is living a life different from many other 19 year-old’s.
The indie-rocker, who prefers the name FREAK, has been called a “One man Nirvana” by The Guardian and has been on tour with bands at the top of the latest indie-rock wave – such as Sundara Karma, Bad Sounds and, most recently, INHEAVEN.
Inspired by small town isolation (having grown-up on the outskirts of Essex) and having dropped out of Uni to stack shelves at his local Co-Op, FREAK’s future looks very different to his past.
His latest single Cake has been given widespread support from everyone who matters, and after shooting a music video where he is pelted with cake from all directions… it looks like Connar can have his cake and eat it!
James Gilmore interviewed FREAK about new music, his live shows and, of course, his favourite type of cake!
