Video Premiere: October’s Child Erupts in New Video for “Lava”

Volcanoes are part of a subset of natural wonders that can become natural disasters in an instant. Luckily, there are many ways to predict an eruption, so rarely is it a total surprise, unless you just weren’t paying attention.

Yesterday I celebrated International Women’s Day at the Regent, where Australian folktronica artist Gordi gave everything she had. She is on tour supporting Son Lux, and last night audiences were also treated to the experimental stylings of WILLS.

Claire McKeown Takes on the Devil and Self-Sabotage with her Heroic Band, Honey Child

This year at the Academy Awards, there has been a concerted effort to honor women and their stories.
