5 Tracks You Need To Hear This Week (18/01/21)

Here are your essential tracks for this week. Please keep sending your tracks to us so we can keep spreading amazing new music. We’ve got some great things planned for this year from interviews, live shows and a whole bunch more.

Teen Creeps – Fall Out

Ahead of their second album, Belgian indie rock band ‘Teen Creeps’ drop their catchy new single Fall Out. Reminiscent of early Biffy to me but theirs also tones of mid 90’s American Lo-fi, think silver Jews, Pavement etc. It’s a pretty straight forward formula, fuzzy guitars, high energy and a catchy as hell chorus, but man does it work!

Fergus McNally – Consciously Asleep

” …if I had to put it into a box I would put it into a “Jazzy Bedroom Pop” kind of box, jazzy being used as an adjective in this case.” quips the young Scottish artist, and he’s right it’s a kinda non-specific type of indie-pop that sound’s oh so familiar but moves with it’s own flow. His debut EP came out at the start of the month, its silky guitar sounds and witty yet jagged vocal lines make it bedroom pop at its finest. Our top pick is ‘This Kingdoms Not United.

Blanketman – Leave The South

Ahead of their debut EP via PIAS , indie band Blanket man drop their first new music of the year, ‘Leave The South’. Almost an ode to the North/South divide that comes down to one crucial issue, the water really does taste better up ‘ere. In truth it’s a cautionary tale of greener grass wrapped up in a punchy 2 minuet 40 indie banger with scrappy guitars and a lot going on that keeps coming back to that fish hook chorus… ‘Leave the South’.

Maximo Park – All Of Me

North East indie Gods Maximo Park return with a new album next month and have treated us to a taster with new single ‘All Of Me’, proving they’re in as fine a form as ever. Big synthy riff, melodic layers and an anthem chorus that invokes a sense of euphoria only they can, what else did you expect?

Citizen – I Want To Kill You

A much longed for return from Ohio rock outfit Citizen with their new single “I Want to Kill You” ahead of their full length release in March. Opening on a rock solid beat joined by a sharp riff as the track builds and builds to a high intensity chorus that’s a bit more of a 00’s indie dance floor filler.
