The Arctic Monkeys Return

British rock superstars, the Arctic Monkeys, have returned after a five year break with their 6th studio album, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. Intricate, lucid and rather repetitive - it's potentially the group's most devisive record yet. At first listen we were feeling underwhelmed, yearning for the big riffs and sing-a-long choruses of previous records [...]

HEKKTA WATCHES – Shape of Water Review

Choruses of 'it looks a bit weird' and 'it's not really my bag' dominated the talk around Shape of Water leading up to watching it. But Guillermo del Toro's stylistic love story between a mute woman and a fish will win you over by the end... HEKKTA was sat next to a helping of popcorn in [...]
