Day 334 Klangkarussell – Netzwerk

When Austrian duo Klangkarussell stormed to Number 3 in the UK single charts last August with the fantastic house anthem Sonnentanz, I rather naively thought of them as a one hit wonder act, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Over the past week there’s been some growing buzz around the duo, unearthing in the process (for…

SVE - Riot

Day 333 SVĒ – Riot

Last October, when reviewing SVĒ’s previous track Talking To The Walls I stated that it was “potentially the best pop single I’ve heard this year”. Fast forward 9 months, and I’m pretty sure she’s done it all over again. Unveiled last week, SVĒ’s new track Riot is a wild, seismic pop juggernaut that does its song…

Raleigh Ritchie - Birthday Girl

Day 332 Raleigh Ritchie – Birthday Girl

With a charting single in the UK under his belt, the ever surprising actor / musician Jacob Anderson aka. Raleigh Ritchie delights his new-found high profile fan-base with a seriously good new single called Birthday Girl. With its bubbling bass, lonely guitar and ghostly synths, Birthday Girl is a flowing track that smoothly soars under Ritchie’s protective wing. Telling a story,…

Seafret - Give Me Something

Day 331 Seafret – Give Me Something

Referring to the term “sea fret” in the dictionary, the definition as some will know, but I presume many like me will learn, means “a wet mist or haze coming inland from the sea”. Hailing from the coastal Yorkshire town of Bridlington, Jack Sedman (vocals) and Harry Draper (guitar) aka. Seafret know this term very well…

Ivy and Gold - Ghosts (Acoustic)

Day 330 Ivy & Gold – Ghosts [Acoustic]

When I discovered Ivy & Gold for the first time as a support act back in May, I pencilled them in as one of my big Sound Of 2015 tips. Having already shared two tracks from their recent EP ‘Eye Of The Storm’, today I took some time to look back upon some of their older youtube videos, and came…

Electric Youth - Runaway

Day 329 Electric Youth – Runaway

Ever since I heard their music on the film soundtrack ‘Drive’, I’ve had a special place saved in my heart for Electric Youth. Creating music designed to transport you somewhere utopian and otherworldly, the Canadian male / female duo are back with a sparkling new single Runaway that will feature on their upcoming debut LP ‘Innerworld’. This track…

Smallpools - Killer Whales

328 Smallpools – Killer Whales [Free Download]

Quite unbelievably, it’s been just over a year since Smallpools featured on this blog. One of the buzziest bands we met last year, their self-titled debut EP was an absolute delight, and I’m glad to see them back with new top quality material. With a great spring its step, new single Killer Whales is undeniably poppy. With…

Shura - Just Once

Day 327 Shura – Just Once

When I first heard Shura’s debut single Touch back in February, I absolutely fell in love with her and the track in a strange way that I really couldn’t get my head around. Finally back with her second single Just Once, I find myself in the same predicament once again. Her music / sound isn’t particularly epic, there…

Pale Seas - Wicked Dreams

Day 326 Pale Seas – Wicked Dreams

Channelling some great Beach House vibes, Southampton’s Pale Seas new single Wicked Dreams is a great slice of dreamy indie-pop. Clearly influenced by West Coast American indie, the band’s new single is packed full of bright and colourful guitars, swaying vocal oohs and chilled-out vocals. Pale Seas will release their brand new Places To Haunt EP on August 11th; pre-order…

Dry The River - Everlasting Light

Day 325 Dry The River – Everlasting Light

As proved by their return single Gethsemane, Dry The River have mixed things up for their new album. With the loss of Will their violinist, the four-piece now have more of a typical band structure to their sound, however this has clearly not detracted from their musicality. New single Everlasting Light is a grand indie-folk anthem that has endearing qualities…
