Single Review: Waiting For The Rain – Andrew Cushin.

Andrew Cushin is more than a talented singer songwriter. He’s a troubadour, a lyrical poet who roams from town-to-town telling his touching tales. If you haven’t heard of him yet, you will do soon. I was lucky enough to see one of his last performances when he appeared on a This Feeling event at Brudenell […]

Single Review: Modern Times – Reclaim Vienna.

Releasing an unexpected lock-down single, based on remote writing and isolation demos is a ballsy move.

Single Review: Last Days – Take the Night.

‘Nostalgia is much more than reminiscing. It’s a feeling’, so say Gateshead duo Take the Night (Tom Homan and Dave Charlton). With their new single Last Days they have captured the feeling of mainstream Eighties synth-pop to perfection. In fact, when Halfway 2 Nowhere editor Adam, sent it to me I thought it was a […]

Single Review: Never Know – The Links.

I’ve been in lacking in motivation recently. A combination of lock-down fatigue and ‘Isolation Gig’ overload have left me somewhat in the doldrums. But then the new single Never Know from Edinburgh four-piece The Links dropped into my in-box and shook from my torpor. Never Know is the second single from The Links following on […]
