I had to fight the urge not to write this entire review in caps. I’m so unbelievably fired up about this song/video that I felt the only way to convey that was to type in caps lock and an abundance of fire emojis. I won’t do that though, because no one wants to feel like […]

An artist and songwriter from Northern Ireland’s capital, Belfast, Dunlop has created a medley of songs in […]

HibbityDibbity

Aside from having the best band name, Hibbity Dibbity (just try saying that with an angry face) released their debut album just last month.
