Interview with Darlia

1st June 2017 | Music

When we first heard Darlia (the Bristol band made up of icon-to-be Nathan Day along with Dave Williams and Jack Bentham) in 2014 we subsequently interviewed them three times – following their journey from small-stage to Glastonbury.


Now it’s three years later, they have been on quite a journey. After their renowned ‘Petals’ was released in 2015, and a string of hits including ‘Dear Diary’, ‘Stars Are Aligned’ and ‘I’ve Never Been To Ohio’, the band almost disappeared. With no sign of the band still being together on social media, previously loyal fans who had followed the band from hole-in-the-wall to festival stages settled on the fact that they may never hear again from the band labelled ‘the next big thing’.

But when the clocks changed and 2017 came in, hope was restored. With a harder, unforgiving rock sound, lead singer Nathan Day’s face was plastered on Facebook and ‘Ballad of Black & White’ was the first sound of what Darlia has become.

Reflecting this transformation, the band have been supporting Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes on tour, as well as playing their own headline dates.


Chris France and Jordan Powell interviewed Nathan Day from Darlia about their two year break, their transformation and touring with Frank Carter.

Myles McCaulskey's Top 5: Wednesday 31st May

31st May 2017 | Music

Every week, Myles McCaulskey picks his Top 5 favourite hip-hop tracks that he's been listening to over the past week. We reveal the list right here, every Wednesday.

1. Little Mix – Power (feat. Stormzy)

When fans questioned Stormzy about linking up with Little Mix he simply told them “We’ve done the track justice.” He was right. The track is powerful from both sets of artists and at least for a week I’m vibing to it!
 


2. Lil Yachty – Better (feat. Stefflon Don)

Lil Yachty’s album has received mixed emotions since it’s release this Friday. For me this is one of the strongest tracks off the project. This one reminds me of a Akon’s old hit “Don’t Matter” if you get what I mean. Featuring the UK’s very own Stefflon Don too! What more can you ask for!
 


3. Dave – 100Ms

Dave is always consistent with his music and we have another one. Dope punchlines on a powerful SG Lewis production. The video which just came out looks good too!


4. Jay Prince – Mandem (feat. Shakka)

The calm vibe of Jay Prince mixed with the melodies of Shakka...not much more you can ask for to be honest! Jay Prince is due to do a madness this year so don’t sleep on him!


5. 2 Chainz – 4 AM (feat. Travis Scott)

I’ve been waiting for 2 Chainz’s album for a while & this is another sample off the album which now comes out on June 16th Plus when you put Travis Scott on a track you know it’s going to be a banger!

Interview with Craig David

28th May 2017 | Music

Craig David has had a pretty massive few years.

Having been at the top of his career in the early-00’s, things went a bit cold for David afterwards. The artist who’s first three records charted in the Top 5 of the charts, became a Top 20 artist instead.


But then, TS5 happened.

For those not in the know, TS5 stands for ‘Tower Suite 5’ and is the name of Craig David’s apartment in Miami where he would host and DJ his own parties. After he started broadcasting those parties and his DJ sets on the radio – things started to kick off again.

Following collaborations with Sigala in 2015 and Big Narstie, things started to change. 2016’s ‘Following My Intuition’ debuted at #1 on the UK Charts – his first #1 since his debut album in 2000 and his first album in 6 years (‘Signed Sealed Delivered’ was released in 2010).


And now, Craig David is a headline artist again.

We interviewed Craig David moments before he was due to headline the main stage at We Are FSTVL in London. Here’s what he had to say…
