Review: “The Birthday Party” is a pity party

A shot from the music video of

February 25, 2020

"The Birthday Party" by The 1975 is consistent with most of their recently released singles, but only because it sucks. It doesn't have the same sound that brought the band to fame in the first place. I appreciate that they're broadening their range and experimenting with new music elements like instruments...

After staying up waiting for Taylor Swift to release her newest single "ME!" featuring Brendon Urie on April 26 at midnight, I lost sleep over it and not in a good way.

Alanna Felton, Editor-in-Chief

April 25, 2019

In an era in which hip-hop and rap have surpassed rock and roll's influence and popularity, Cage the Elephant is part of small set of bands whose music hearkens back to classic rock and roll.

Hozier's sophomore album explores themes of anxiety about impending doom, strange love and acceptance in the face of the end. I knew that "No Plan...

Concert review: Ed Sheeran exceeds all expectations

Ed Sheeran sings to the crowd

Amelia Foster, A&E Editor

November 8, 2018

Looking at the miles and miles of traffic-jammed cars leading to Raymond James Stadium, I was seriously considering whether this Ed Sheeran concert would be worth the wait. It was a hot and humid Wednesday night, I had a lot of homework and I hadn't listened to his music since the seventh grade. Despite...
