Hey, I’m Emily and I come from Maidstone in Kent. I'm a writer of interviews and reviews for AltCorner. I’ve always loved music and I’ve wanted to write for music publications since I was a teen. My favourite music genres are rock, pop punk and indie.

Emily Clark's Articles:

FEAR ME DECEMBER – BETWEEN VIOLENCE AND SILENCE

Overall, I'd say the album is satisfying. The tracks are certainly worth listening to, so I'd reccommend to give this a listen when it gets released.

THE SPITFIRES – A THOUSAND TIMES

The guys of Spitfire will be releasing their latest album A Thousand Times next month. Listening to these tracks myself, I was met with a few good listens.

A Chat With As Sirens Fall

With the recent release of As Sirens Fall's EP The Hospital Party, I was able to have a chat with them about their new release and their upcoming tours.

THE HOSTILES-LAST CALL

Are you a big fan of ska punk? And do you enjoy listening to bands from the 90s like Rancid and Reel Big Fish? If so, The Hostiles' newest release Last Call will be right up your street.

A Chat With Area 11

With the release of Area 11's latest album Modern Synthesis, I had the chance to chat with Jonathan Kogan (AKA Kogie) about the record, as well as experiences and inspirations as a band on the whole.

AREA 11 – Modern Synthesis

Overall, Modern Synthesis is a little different to what I'm used to hearing, but to me, that's always a good thing (I was especially impressed by the mixed sounds of Watchmaker). Anyway, I'm sure once it's released on Friday, fans of Area 11 will feel that this has been worth the wait.

The Autumn Ravine – An Intrinsic Evolution

An interesting title, much fitting with the cover art. To me, it looks as though we're looking at an evolution of a man who struggled and worked through his life, but once he had a son of his own, his child was given money straight from his father's pocket.

SAOSIN – ALONG THE SHADOW

There's not much else to say about this album except that well, it's simply awesome. And if post-hardcore is your thing, then you may just agree.

PRETTY LITTLE ENEMY-BITCH PLEASE

I look forward to more tracks to be released from this band, as so far, I'd say judging from this EP they are definitely worth keeping an eye on. I wish the best for the release of EP, and the band itself.

COLD SUMMER – FIGHT TO SURVIVE

According to their biography on their website, this EP is described as "their most refined and anger driven music to date". This type of tag line builds up a lot of optimism for this release so lets see how it fared...

CITY OF ASHES – RISE

As I said before, Rise would definitely be something I'd recommend if you're into 30 Seconds To Mars. And although I said the influence was clear, City Of Ashes are still very much original in their music. Remember, inspiration isn't always copying, and I hope City Of Ashes get themselves signed soon.

MODERN BASEBALL – HOLY GHOST

"It's nice to hear Modern Baseball's success story, from college students to selling albums worldwide and I'm certain they'll bring us more albums just as great as Holy Ghost in the future" - Emily Clark

CAIRO SON – STORM CLOUDS

Cairo Son’s latest album Storm Clouds was released back in March. Not being aware of this band myself and being particularly interested when I saw their sound was labeled as “stoner”, I decided to take a listen. I first listened to Devils Tongue, which begins with a “one, two, one two three four” beat (it’ll […]

AS IT IS – NEVER HAPPY, EVER AFTER (DELUXE EDITION)

Being already familiar with the original album (and having some personal favourites from there), I didn't expect any less from the bonus tracks of the Deluxe Edition of Never Happy, Ever After .

BLACK PEAKS – STATUES

It's pretty bizarre what's going on with that gentleman's face on the cover, but weird doesn't always equal bad. In fact, when you hear this album, you may just agree with that sentiment...
