Supersaurus Drops "Let U Down": A Vibrant Ode to Queer Love and Indie Pop

by Geena Ling The British weather may have been disappointing this summer, but Supersaurus have exactly what it takes to lift the mood.  The eclectic indie pop band is about to drop their latest track, "Let U Down," due on streaming platforms September 1st. The moody but colourful track addresses a jaded lover, set against a punchy electronic rhythm. It’s loaded with noughties pop rock inspiration combined with a synthy 80s vibe, making it the perfect symbol of nostalgia for any age group to reminisce on summers gone by.  The irresistibly catchy hook and heartfelt, melodramatic lyrics (which are practically begging to be screamed along to) are sure to sound amazing blasting out of car speakers with the windows rolled down. Despite only making music together since last year, Supersaurus already have eight singles under their belt and have developed a unique, distinctive style: a but dancey, a bit rock ‘n’ roll - and a lot of energy.  While their lyrics might explore melancholi

A24's Bold Move Shakes the Film Industry: Can Indie Cinema Save Hollywood's Soul?

by Oana-Mari Moldovan  Last month, a significant development shook the film industry as the workers' union, SAG-AFTRA, initiated a strike due to the stalled negotiations with The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) on equitable wages and the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in filmmaking. Amidst this unrest, a beacon of progress shines through. 39 independent film and TV projects secured approval from SAG-AFTRA to forge ahead with their endeavors. Notably, A24, a renowned New York-based production company celebrated for its Academy Awards triumphs, stands at the forefront of this movement. The Hollywood actors' union's decision to exempt these 39 projects from the strike, a momentous announcement made last Tuesday, underscores the complexity of the situation. Two of these projects are A24 creations. A24's cinematic prowess is evident in its critically acclaimed films like “Midsommar” (2019), “Lady Bird” (2017), and “Everything Everywhe

The Sheffield Based Tattoo Artist Exposed for Indecent Behaviour Last Year… Is Still Active?

by Emily Fletcher Last year, a popular Sheffield based tattoo artist was accused of inappropriate conduct. See our coverage from June 2022 here .   Shared on Instagram, many recounted their encounters with the artist. Since the accounts initial post in May 2022, they remain active on the account, continuing to share stories and experiences.  Despite what's happened, the artist is still tattooing. The tattoo artists’ online presence After deleting nearly half of their Instagram posts to maintain a low profile, they’ve been doing tattoos at their home ‘studio’ in Rotherham.  A source confirmed that this studio is merely just the spare room in their house. They are still taking bookings, and - though they’ve lost a lot - they still have 28.7K followers. Their Instagram comments, undoubtedly, have been limited. This means that only their followers and the people they follow can comment on his content.  Right now, their page doesn't have any pictures of him. It's not clear if th

Exploring Sportswashing in Football From A Geordie Perspective

by Phoenix Atkinson In the fast-paced world of football, noteworthy transfers often capture headlines.   The 2023 transfer window has been no exception, as prominent players like Christino Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and Allan Saint-Maximin made surprising moves to Saudi Pro League clubs. This trend of star footballers nearing the twilight of their careers seeking high-paying deals is unmistakable.  But what's driving these moves, and is there a deeper narrative at play? Christino Ronaldo's record-breaking £173 million-a-year deal with Al-Nassr and Karim Benzema's £171 million switch to Al Ittihad raise eyebrows. Even Allan Saint-Maximin's £30 million bid from Al Ahli and Neymar's departure from Paris St-Germain to Al-Hilal hint at a developing pattern. The question is whether these high-profile moves hold a common theme. Undoubtedly, money is the driving force behind these transfers. The twilight years of a footballer's career often coincide with financial planning
