Welcome to Viberant’s weekly song roundup; where we take a look at some of the big releases over the past seven days and tell you our thoughts on them. Last week saw new singles from the likes of BROCKHAMPTON, Muse and of course, The 1975. Here is what we thought of them:
So for those that don’t know, Viberant is run by three people; myself, Liam Jones and Callum Galloway. We all have musical opinions and artists that we agree on enjoying, such as the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Brockhampton; but we also have some vastly disagreeable thoughts. Whether that be Liam completely disregarding Radiohead, Cal refusing to accept that bands other than The Strokes and The 1975 exist or me being a ride-or-die to bands many would consider cheesy these days like the Kings of Leon.

The great thing about music, though, is that they aren’t wrong at all, they just hold views that they’re perfectly entitled to- and I just happen to disagree.

With the album lasting a mere 21 minutes and being entirely produced by Kanye West, is it a stroke of genius or a flop to forget? Continue reading “Pusha T- DAYTONA: Album Review”
