HERE’S THIS WEEKS ESSENTIAL LISTENING, FEATURING FIVE ABSOLUTE BANGERS YOU NEED TO ADD TO YOU PLAYLISTS AND SHARE AROUND. IF YOU’VE GOT SOMETHING YOU THINK WE NEED TO HEAR SEND IT OVER TO US, WE DON’T MIND, WE LOVE GETTING NEW MUSIC.
King No-One – Bad Porno
‘Bad Porno’ is a collaboration of ideas infusing indie disco vibes with rock guitars and soulful vocal melodies. Pack with little throw backs to the 00’s indie wonder years, little trills and riffs that’ll get stuck in your brain and that slicing guitar solo make it a playlist essential this week.
The Filthy Pieces – Lo and Behold
The new track from northern indie-rock band ‘The Filthy Pieces’ boasts big riffs and hard hitting drums resulting in a high tempo, guitar driven modern rock powerhouse. It’s a bit of a comeback for the York based two-piece with more music on the way.
All Night Dining – After Work (Demo)
Shoplifters Union ‘One’s to Watch‘ All Night Dining dropped a new demo for After Work. Pack with all the ‘AND‘ charm we’ve gotten from the last couple of tracks, it’s gorgeous vocal lines and powerful guitars well out wright the roughs around the edges on this ‘Catfish’ style indie rock banger.
The Covasettes – Modern Rapunzel
A melodic indie-pop masterclass from Manchester boy The Covasettes, Modern Rapunzzel plays with dynamic and melody with soft strums and big noise proving equally important to the vibe of the track. With a huge chorus hook, a carefree vibe and addictive guitar riffs it’s an playlist essential ear work I’ll have on for the rest of the week.
Shader – Runaway
Melodic indie guitar rock at it’s finest, Runaway focus on riffs and beats that play off each other beneath a strong indie rock vocal line. It’s exactly what guitar music should be, loud and up front and conveying a rebellious tone though it’s vocals.
