Day 30 Sia – Elastic Heart ft. The Weeknd & Diplo

After lending a helping hand to pretty much all the big-game pop artists the world currently enjoys, Sia Furler, the often forgotten and uncredited Queen of pop has finally found time to release a brand new single under her own name that will feature on the upcoming ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ soundtrack. Not purely a…

Scenic - Overflow

Day 29 Scenic – Overflow

Pretty much the kings of psychadelica, Tame Impala are the ideal comparison point when observing new psych outfits these days. Like Tame Impala, Scenic are also Australian which is a good start, but it is where their music stands that really pulls the two together. Perhaps a little more electro than Tame Impala, Scenic’s new…

Jake Bugg - What Doesn't Kill You

Day 28 Jake Bugg – What Doesn’t Kill You

I have always been quite impartial to Jake Bugg’s music. His self-titled debut album proved incredibly popular in the UK and across Europe, however I always felt his acoustic approach and nasal sounding vocals were a little irritating. However, Bugg’s brand new single What Doesn’t Kill You seems to suggest that things are changing. Picking up…

Fossil Collective - The Water

Day 27 Fossil Collective – The Water

I’ve always known the name Fossil Collective quite well, but have never actually spent any time listening to the music behind the name, and to be honest, now I wish I had. Hailing from Leeds, the duo have just released a stunning new single called The Water, the title track from their upcoming ‘The Water EP’.…

Agnes Obel - Fuel To Fire

Day 25 Agnes Obel – Fuel To Fire

Ever since I heard a teaser for this track on youtube, I have been obsessing over the idea of hearing the song in its full glory. That time has finally come, and it certainly lives up to my high expectations. The second offering to be released from Agnes Obel’s upcoming sophomore album ‘Aventine’, Fuel To Fire is…

Dustin Tebutt - The Breach

Day 23 Dustin Tebutt – The Breach

Very similar to the incredible Vancouver Sleep Clinic track I posted a couple of months back, Dustin Tebutt is another Australian artist that has managed to create music that can accurately be compared to multi-instrumentalist and songwriter supremo Justin Vernon, aka. Bon Iver. Having relocated to Sweden for a couple of years to write and…

Temples - Keep In The Dark

Day 22 Temples – Keep In The Dark

Transporting you back to the swinging 70’s, Temples latest single Keep In The Dark is a retro, psych-rock gem. Perhaps the British equivalent of Tame Impala, Temples melodic psychedelia doesn’t creep into a weird, hypnotic realm, but maintains a healthy pop vibe that makes this song so inviting to listen to. The songs baritone saxophone solo is…

The North - Violent Heart

Day 21 The North – Violent Heart

About as fresh as you can be, new London duo The North have just shared their first ever demo, Violent Heart on youtube. Entirely self-produced, the songs opening piano chords and deep, bass vocals herald an instant maturity that reminds me of The Editors, back when they were at the top of their game. The track also lends a…
