Astronomers Create a Constellation for David Bowie

I think this is the most beautiful tribute anyone could ever do for David Bowie. Studio Brussels, a radio station, spoke to MIRA Public Observatory and asked them to dedicate a constellation to Bowie, making him an actual ‘Starman’. Seven stars together form the lightening bolt on the rock legend’s face on his Aladdin Sane album cover.  …

Touch the stars, Ziggy Stardust

Yesterday on January 10th 2016, we lost glam-rock legend David Bowie to cancer and it is a loss that will weigh heavy on us all. Life is funny sometimes. My previous post celebrated the release of ‘Lazarus’ and the excitement around the just-released ‘★’ (Blackstar), as well as Bowie’s energy and genius that shone through in the…

Watch David Bowie’s creepy new video for ‘Lazarus’

David Bowie has always been the ultimate symbol of the eccentric, unattainable rockstar who is so bad for you but so damn good. Whether it’s Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke or the ‘Blind Prophet’ of his latest album ‘★’ (Blackstar), Bowie captures your attention completely and sends you on a trip LSD would be jealous…

Sex, tongue and rock and roll with The 1975

The 1975 have been close to my heart ever since I heard their EP Music for Cars which featured the infectious track ‘Chocolate’. I had previously said in a post that this band was made for great things, and it was definitely one of my most accurate predictions. The 1975 have made me and every…

Blame it on the Pop

DJ Earworm’s annual ‘United State of Pop’ is pretty much either hit or miss each year. I don’t know if it is because music has changed so much or whether the mash-ups in general are not so great, but after 2009’s ‘Blame it on the Pop’, the mash-ups have failed to impress both me and…

Who is BØRNS?

This question was the first thing that came to my mind when I came across him on Interscope Records’ Twitter. He sounds like he belongs to another generation, flitting between an 80’s electro-pop vibe and a 70’s island sound, culminating into something that is the embodiment of California. If Lana Del Rey were male, she would…

How Justin Bieber Found ‘Purpose’

I never thought Justin Bieber would be an artist whose music I would truly enjoy. I don’t believe in hating and bashing someone I’ve never met, so I can proudly say I have never hated the guy himself. But as a music critic, I can safely apply the words ‘tremendous dislike’ to most of his previous albums. With the…

This Video is Breathtaking in More Ways than One

The video for Naughty Boy’s ‘Runnin’ (Lose It All)’ ft. Beyoncé and Arrow Benjamin has got to be one of the most creative masterpieces I have seen in a long time, and is perhaps better than the song itself. The gorgeous visuals manage to pull focus from Queen Bey’s vocals, something that we all thought was impossible- until now….

Why Troye Sivan Drives Me Wild

Over this last week I have been completely and utterly obsessed with Troye Sivan’s new EP Wild. What I adore about him is how unexpectedly deep his singing voice is. He’s young, gorgeous and slim with the most cherubic face I’ve seen in a long time. But his voice… His voice is deep, smooth and almost breathy in…

Make-Overs and Music To Watch Boys To

So this week Midnight Heartbeat has had a much-needed makeover because I feel I owe it to this blog and my readers to make a change. Those of you who have been following me all these years or have just started doing so, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If I’m being honest,…

The Glorious Return of Tokio Hotel

If you know me personally or have been reading my blog for a long time [thank you!] you’ll definitely know that the band that means everything in the world to me is Tokio Hotel. I have been a fan for 9 years and still going strong. People ask me why I love them so much…
