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.
Sunstinger – Shadows
Fife shoegaze band Sunstinger drop their latest single ’Shadows’, the first release from their debut EP ‘Beyond The Frame’,due to be released independently in June. It’s driving fuzz-bass-line and dropped back vocal melodies create a sense of melancholic euphoria while the ambient guitars bring the noise, it’s a classic shoegaze sound with a contemporary sharpness.
M. BYRD – MORNING SUN
Former touring bassist turned solo singer-song-writer 𝑀. Byrd drops this hazy hypnotic indie lullaby that boasts smooth hushed vocals and gentle melodies washing over listeners. Real sun set vibes on this neo-psych-folk track, for fans of Bon Iver and FJM.
Low Island – What do you Stand For
If you’re looking for a fresh tune with a lot of attitude then look no Further than Low Island’s new song ‘What do you stand for’.
Opening up with an aggressively funky synth beat, your head will be bopping from the outset. This song radiates a huge Foals influence in my opinion, with random outbursts of guitars and cymbal flashes.
This is a huge step forward for Low Island, whoa re slowly cementing themselves as one of the leading upcoming artists in the UK, we can’t wait to hear what they in store for us next.
VLURE – Shattered Faith
If you love White Lies or Crystal Castles, then VLURE are your new favourite band. Their new single is a huge anthem, continuing huge synth hooks and an addictive drum loop that sounds unreal.
I can really imagine this song being blasted out at a festival in the summer, with the whole crowd jumping in unison, it’s one of those tunes that you can just imagine what it’s going to be like in a live setting.
Post-Party – Wasting Time
If you’re excited for the summer then i’ve got the perfect song for you. Indie charmers ‘Post Party’ have released their new single Wasting time and it’s the ultimate anthem to blast out in the sun.
Echoing the sounds of their indie predecessors such as Circa Waves and Clean Cut Kid, Post-Party have a really solid foundation with this song, it’s uplifting, bright and really easy to just put on a loop and listen to it over and over, which is a great feat in itself.
