Fed up with hearing the same old tunes? Well, why not cast your ears over ten of our new specially handpicked hot picks!
IMPERIAL DAZE - 1000 LIVES
Oooh, we like. Lead track from the just released 'Solid Fair' EP from the London outfit whose 'All On Me' won a Track Of The Day from us. Alex Cameron's come-to-bed voice would win it alone, but this EP also has the stamp of being recorded at The Maccabees studio in Elephant & Castle with Rupert Jarvis co-producing and Sam Doyle on drums. Catch live on September 21 at London's Hoxton Bar & Kitchen for a free entry show.
HEADCLOUDS - FLOWERS
Debut single of hazy, dreampop reverb and sotto voce vocal refinement, released August 25, from new Newcastle quartet. Taken from their imminent EP ‘Pure Honey’, the track is a blissful summer burst of blossom. Catch live next at The Surf Cafe, Tynemouth (w/ James Leonard Hewitson) on - September 15.
JELLYSKIN - SNOW SKY
This, say the Leeds' spacegazers, who Little Indie first introduced here last summer with 'Grey Glass Hat', was "buried away in our EP but hasn't been heard as much. We thought it deserved a proper release." So do we.
WILD HONEY - MESSED UP
You can never have too many music vibes from Oz as far as we are concerned. This sweet piece of nectar from this Sydney five-piece with its jangly, DMA's sound, is about, says frontman Thom Moore says the track came about when he started to question his own routine of “putting up with whatever I had to do through the week, hanging out for the weekend when I could get loaded, but then too soon its Monday and I’d press repeat." Recorded with Jack Moffitt (The Preatures, Mosquito Coast),'Messed Up' is a taste of the band's forthcoming debut album, to be released on the bands own Spillway Records label.
ATOMIC CAFE - WISCONSIN
Latest single from the Minneapolis five-piece garage/ psych rock band to herald their debut album, with a great opening and some 60s styled vocal effects.
New single - released last week - from the Falmouth outfit, flirting with ’60s influenced garage rock. Recently signed to PNKSLM Recordings, the group release their self-titled debut LP on September 22.
HONEYMOONS - DAZE
Dreamy melodic dreampop three minute bew single from the Bournemouth trio, following 'Trying' and debut 'Banff' from this spring. George Appleton pulls out his falsetto over a somewhat melancholy instrumental ambience.
NEW CARNIVAL - SOLID GOLD
Just released new single from the Bristol indie rock quartet, following their 2016 debut single ‘Where Do You Wanna Go’ and this year's ‘Run For Cover’. The track was produced by lead singer Max Radford, who says: “Lyrically I was exploring the feelings you have in the embryonic stages of a relationship, feeling close to someone but also distant at the same time, and that urge to push things forward”.
KINGS LOUNGE - THE SAME
Rather a different to the dark synth or post punk sounds that seem to emanate more frequently from Sweden. This rock-pop sextet pull out an arena number as their follow-up to previous singles 'Home' and 'Waiting'.
CHURCH GIRLS - BREAKING BONES
The Philadelphia female-led our-piece follow recent 'Better Off' with this new single from their upcoming second album, 'Hidalgo', out on September 15. Atmospheric opening leads into a cinematic four minutes-plus graced by vocalist/guitarist Mariel Beaumont’s darkly enticing voice.
