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.
Cimmerian – SLAP RASH
Manchester duo SLAP RASH’s latest track is a anger fuelled powerful wall of noise, it’s filthy bass line and thrashing drums only take pause for slick, seductive lyrical breaks. Packed with anxiety inducing outbursts and oozing cool, Cimmerian’s fusion of retro and new punk vibes is the high octane energy blast you need to keep you going for the rest of the week.
Coasting – The Royston Club
What stars as a subtle guitar pop song transforms into a powerful indie rock anthem with big poppy hooks, conveyed though the songs strongest feature: those stunning vocals. The North Wales band continue to impress with their songwriting skills and tender but stunning sound.
Cheer up Baby – Inhaler
Dublin indie rock band Inhaler dropped ‘Cheer up Baby‘ a euphoric, sunshine filled precursor to the impending summer. Beautiful vocal lines and indie pop riffs combine to create this awe-inspiring love letter to their fans. Cheer up baby comes ahead of Inhalers debut album ‘It Won’t Always Be Like This‘ due for release July 16th.
The Clockworks – Feels So Real
Galway formed, London based indie rock band The Clockworks release their latest track via Allan McGee‘s It’s Creation Baby. It’s hypnotic drums are matched by driving guitar riffs and soaring vocal hook during the chorus. Filled the with rebellious energy you’d expect from on of McGee’s projects and a distinctive identity that’s all their own, Feel’s So Real is a tour de force of indie rock noise.
Fleur Rouge – Gameboy
Half French and half English, Manchester-based Fleur Rouge drops addictively fun new track Gameboy inspired by ‘all the wrong guys’. Packed with Nintendo inspired sounds and slick beats, Fleur delivers an ice cold performance dripping with Charlie XCX vibes throughout this bubblegum masterclass in how to write a pop song.
