KAVANAGH – Citizen 202
Full speed ahead for the new, high energy, alt-rock single from Kent five piece KAVANAGH. Big riffs with a Laissez-faire, too cool for school vocal delivery despite the chaos erupting around around it, Citizen 202 is a class, full throttle less than two minuets of pure rock energy.
Ruiz! – Blue Mediterranean
Sheffield multi-instrumentalist Ruiz! delivers floaty, surf rock inspired single Blue Mediterranean. It’s packed with slick, free riding guitars and solid beats with notes of fuzz through out, it’s screams 90’s with notable inspiration from artists like The Dandy Warhols and even The Smashing Pumpkins but there’s a 60’s sould shinning through.
Poploader – Summerboy Blues
An instant summer anthem from German band Poploader, the boys from Regensburg inject addictive poppy synth lines into guitar based indie and the result is pure sunshine. Like a modern Kinks that have been listening to the best of brit-pop anthems on repeat Summberboy Blues is a joyful guitar pop track ready for lounging in the sun to.
