It’s a little while since we post anything, but we’ve been super busy. With live music coming back our focus has moved to putting on gigs and releasing new music that we can’t wait for you to hear. But we’re going to try and get back to getting some reviews out there so we can share the new music we love with you again. So lets kick things of with the best tracks of the week that you need to hear.
DEAFDEAFDEAD – City Song
Manchester post-punk band DEAFDEAFDEAF are fast becoming a personal obsession of mine, the angsty guitars and haunting vocals create these mesmerising soundscapes that I can’t get enough of. City Song is the latest in a line of stunning singles from the band and possibly their best so far with stunning layers of guitar riffs and sleek melodies that give a buzz or jaded frustration to the tracks vibe.
Katie Wood – Enemy of Lovers
Perhaps the greatest gift the 80’s gave us, aside from great hair styles and Super Mario, is Goth Pop and I welcome it’s resurgence with open arms. Katie Wood’s latest outing is a silky smooth but slightly dark track that boasts addictive synth lines and gorgeous husked vocals that take things to a whole new level. Yeah there’s a whole nostalgic vibe about this but right beside those Cure vibes are modern tones comparable to Pale Waves and Wolf Alice. Regardless, those jangly melodies are impossible not to dance too, I recommend listening via a Boombox or Walkman for maximum effect.
Le Pain- “Troisième Groupe
With sun soaked vibes and uplifting melodies the latest track from Los Angeles based indie pop group Le Pain is a cooling breath of fresh air. It’s jangly surf riffs and 60’s inspired drums paint a picture of sunny beach days whilst the darling vocal melodies, sang mostly in french, smoothen any edge, giving Troisiéme Groupe a heavenly, airy vibe. A perfect floaty summer tune.
The Crayon Set
Dublin based band The Crayon Set drop new single Rock Star, a jangly indie pop track that mixes melancholy with ambition. With infectious hooks and and sparkling vocals it’s a tale of yearning and hope against a melodic back drop and a perfect taste of what’s to come from their upcoming third album.
HI SIENNA – Hail Mary
Drowning in pop spirit and funky riffs the latest single from Manchester based band HI SIENNA is a ear worm that draws memories of early 00’s pop with an indie edge. With ear catching layers of sound and big summer vibes it’s packed decadent sound. A playlist essential this week!
