Day 181 Dan Croll – Compliment Your Soul

Somehow the release of Dan Croll’s new single, Compliment Your Soul managed to slip my notice last week, however as the saying goes, better late than never. Like previous singles, From Nowhere and Home, Compliment Your Soul is built upon a blissfully rich, soothing indie melody that’s refreshing, rolling pace and layered, instrumental intricacies makes for…

Day 180 mdnt – Dreamcatcher (Ft. Jez Dior)

Debut tracks from unknown artists often take a lot of time to gather momentum and often never materialise into anything; however when your debut release features rhymes from the highly talented Jez Dior and sounds as good as Dreamcatcher does, these laws are often thrown out the window. Described by mdnt themselves as a work of ‘future-soul’,…

Day 179 Freedom Fry – Friends and Enemies

Full of character and charm, transatlantic duo Freedom Fry’s brand new single Friends and Enemies is an inherently catchy, surfer-pop tune which funks along with a pleasing, disco-edged groove. Plodding away proudly, the songs memorable bass-line inspires clinical indie melodies, radiant vocals and dreamy synths that gift the song a warming, sun-kissed glow. Download Artist…

Day 178 To Kill A King – Children Who Start Fires

Gifted with a copy of the brand new To Kill A King album, ‘Cannibals With Cutlery’ months ago, I have frustratingly had to keep my opinions on their debut album under wraps until it was finally released in the shops. The record dropped today and to say it is absolutely brilliant is an understatement. With a…

Day 177 Fyfe – St Tropez

On the back of his highly successful debut single Solace, London musician Fyfe graces our presence for a second time with a wonderful, quirky new single, St Tropez. Fyfe’s soft, exposed vocals stand out from the very beginning, gently crooning over intricate, methodical melodies that lulls the listener into a cushioned sense of intrigue. Padded out by edgy riffs and…

Day 176 The Hics – Cold Air

London six-piece The Hics’ debut single Cold Air is a blissful, thought-provoking piece of dreamy electronic music. Swamped by an expansive beat and repetitive piano, Cold Air glistens in a mirage of stunning, sonic flashes that draw together beautifully with a hazy warmth. The song ends with an ailing saxophone solo that calls out with smooth, drooping…

Day 175 Cub Scouts – Hands

A big favourite of mine, Cub Scouts have featured on this blog before and are destined to feature again; so class today’s post as another taster song. Featured on last years ‘Told You So’ EP, Hands is a pristine piece of summery pop that I can’t help but smile to. Built upon a super-catchy, vibrant…

Day 174 Flume – Holdin On

I might not have been the quickest onto the Flume-craze, but after hearing track upon track from his debut LP, I can’t help but get more infatuated with the Sydney-based producer’s music. First falling in love with the incredible Left Alone ft. Chet Faker, I am now strangely obsessed with the towering, monster of a dance-track that…

Day 173 Forestears – Against The Floor

Enchanting English folk, Forestears’ Against The Floor is a wonderful, organic song that trickles daintily by with a pastoral perfection. Built around an acoustic guitar and a two-piece horn section, Against The Floor’s rustic, lo-fi recording makes it feel as if the song is being performed right before your eyes. What also makes this song such a…

Day 172 Sir Sly – Easy Now

Dark and broody, Sir Sly’s newest release, Easy Now is a heavy slice of gripping indie-pop. With a bruising bass and mellow, hip-hop beat, this new release is a hauntingly inviting song that ominously draws you in to its mysterious, slinky heart.   Download Artist – Amazon Itunes
