5 tracks you need to hear this week (22/02/21)

Garden Party – Better (Than You)

Manchester based indie band Garden Party have just released their absolute banger of a new single ‘Better (than you)’. This song sounds like it was created by the red bricks of Manchester. The vibe of the song hints at influences from an array of Madchester bands throughout the years and it really packs a punch.

With huge distorted guitar lines and a vocal full of passion, Garden Party can only go up from here.

The Sway – Sunshine Seeker

If you’re a big fan of The Coral then you’re going to absolutely adore the new single ‘Sunshine Seeker’ by Scouse 5 piece The Sway.

The vocals in this song really are just great, they’re so husky and each word demands to be listened to. The Sway really are talented musicians as each part plays a pivotal role in why this song sounds so good, as well as a piano breaks that actually catches you off guard but sounds really good within the song.

The Silver Bars – Damsel

‘Damsel’ is the new single taken from the EP ‘No Luxuries’ by five-piece indie band The Silver Bars.

Channeling their inner stereophonic, these lads have managed to create a really good tune. It rises and falls really well throughout the song with jangly guitars complimenting the husky main vocal perfectly throughout the verse preparing you for the huge chorus they have in store as well as a very aggressive and strokes-esque middle 8 section.

Abbie Ozard – Breakdowns

I don’t think there’s a single song Abbie Ozard has released that I haven’t liked so maybe i’m biased here but her new single ‘breakdowns’ is yet another massive tune.

The title of the song is very apt for this day and age and I feel that songs like this that highlight the state of people’s minds yet shine a light on them by putting the issues within a really upbeat song is great. It’s really catchy and Abbie’s vocals are melodic yet you can’t help feeling that she’s speaking to you on a personal level.

I have no doubt in my mind that Abbie Ozard is going to be huge and also no doubt in my mind that we will be reviewing another one of her songs very soon.

Cameo Habitat – Trace of Self

I do love it when I come across a song that gets my head bobbing as soon as it starts playing and the new single ‘Trace of Self’ by Cameo Habitat is that song this week. I can’t pin down what this song is influenced by but that’s probably one of the reasons why I love it. It hits ridiculously hard in the chorus, with the main vocal line gliding over the top of the heavy guitars as if the singer hasn’t noticed how mad the song has got at this point.

I’m definitely going to be keeping my eye on this band as they seem to have something special. I can’t wait to hear what they will come up with next.
