Dream-pop princess Savannah releases first EP

Dream-pop princess Savannah has just released her first EP, and it sounds like the start of something sparkling and new...

Following up on her breakthrough single ‘I’ll Never Know’, Savannah's debut E.P. ‘Oxygen’ is solidifying her place in the New Zealand musical landscape, as she creates meaningful and relatable pop music, which is also catchy AF.

The skillfully written 5-track project takes the listener on a journey through Savannah’s mind, through the experiences of youth, where falling in and out of love is the norm. Her writing style is refreshingly honest and direct. Savannah sings of long distance online relationships and unrequited love, all the emotions that are sure to resonate with youth the world over.

“I want people to be able to listen to this EP and feel like someone understands them,
and someone is there for them.”

The E.P. flows perfectly, all the production is high-end and synth driven, with fat basslines effortlessly backing up Savannah’s raspy and smooth vocals. The songs are right up there with any release from Halsey or Melanie Martinez, who are some of Savannah’s biggest inspirations. Savannah is a part of this current wave of pop artists who enjoy creating dynamic empowering music. We can’t wait to hear more..

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
