Video – ‘Pop on the Couch’, Episode Five ft. Ellie Goulding, Naughty Boy & More

The fifth episode of our weekly pop music chat for umusic, shot and edited by The Spinoff’s own José Barbosa. It involves two pop rookies – The Spinoff’s Alex Casey and bFM’s Joseph Harper – listening to state-of-the-art pop music and having a chat about it. Simple. This week they discuss water safety, Ellie Goulding fan art and the impolite way to ask for a drink.
