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.
Deva St. John – Preacher
With a huge chorus hook and those thunderous drums, this politically charged rock track from London born Deva St. John is dripping in cool. Big pop-rock energy that plays between 70’s glam and 90’s grunge sounds, making this an unmissable guitar anthem.
SHADE – Jump Into Heaven
Manchester indie-rock 4 piece drop their guitar fulled third single. ‘Jump Into Heaven‘ boasts a soaring euphoric chorus, slick guitars and an undeniable indie rock swagger, with hints of Oasis and The Verve, SHADE follow in their Mancunian forefathers footsteps with this rock & roll banger.
Dayglow – Woah Man
Texas singer Dayglow shared folk-pop single ‘Woah Man‘ ahead of his upcoming album Harmony House, due next month. With jangly guitar strums and floaty melody infused with psychedelic vibes, Dayglow has put everything out there on this smooth indie ballad.
Del Water Gap – Sorry I Am
Brooklyn based artist Del Water Gap aka. S. Holden Jaffe, releases new single ‘Sorry I Am’, a glittering, heartfelt dream-pop track. Released on Mom + Pop Music it’s bursting with blooming emotion, delicate vocal melody and dizzy riffs.
NewDad – Drown
Irish shoegaze band NewDad made our one’s to watch list this year and the first track from their debut EP continues the tone of exquisite hazy guitars, opaque vocals and swirling noise. With a commanding bass line and fearful but tender lyrics over tom heavy drums there’s no doubt this tracks DNA is made up by the likes of The Cure and The Cranberries.
