Video: ‘Pop on the Couch’, Episode One ft Demi Lovato, The Weeknd, Sam Smith & More

The first 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 being drunk in a toilet, the hairstyles of The Grinch and what “cool for the summer” actually means.
