Since the formation of Manchester-based band, Electric Screams, just earlier this year, there’s been high anticipation for the release of a debut single. It’s safe to say that the wait is (almost) over, in the form of short but sweet, jazz infused rock ballad, ‘Dogs‘.
Ahead of her album release in September, Freja Frances has released poignant new single ‘The Wolf‘.
Released back on 19th July, ‘The Wolf‘ is set to be the 5th track on upcoming album ‘The Funeral’.
London’s very own rising rock quintet, BRIDGES, are back for the third time already this year, with latest single: ‘Return To The Drake’s Nest‘.
Released just a day before they played a slot at The Bimble Inn at Glastonbury, ‘Return To The Drake’s Nest‘ presents a truly anthemic guitar-lead sound.
Originally reigning from North Yorkshire, Belvoir Hill have spent years performing mainly as a cover band. Playing hometown pubs, parties and even a private island in Essex, they’ve had a long stretch without any official releases under their belts.
However, yesterday (28th April) marked the end of an era and welcomed a new, as the band released their debut single, ‘Foreign Places’.
Berlin based, American alt/folk singer, Jon Campbell, is both a musician and an artist.
With debut album ‘Sirens’ coming out this September 20th, Jon Campbell has recently released his first single from it, ‘Francis’, with an accompanying video hand-painted by himself.
Following on from their 2018 release of single ‘Sleepwalking‘, Streets Of Roya are back with yet another single from upcoming EP ‘A Bad Companion‘.
Having taken a break in 2010 after their previous 15 year stint of success, friendship and their creativity brought Scottish Indie veterans, Idlewild, back together for 2015’s album: ‘Everything Ever Written’. Along with that came critical appraise, a top 20 slot and tonnes of sold out gigs in venues as large as they had ever played in.
South London based four piece, CHILDCARE, return with latest single ‘Bamboo’.
Released November 9th, ‘Bamboo’ is something just a little bit different from the softcore-pysch band’s previously released material. The single sees Emma Topolski swap her bass for Ed Cares’ usual lead vocalist position and it’s gorgeous.
Brighton four-piece, Safe To Swim, are back on the scene with a brand new single, ‘Friends‘.
Released on 2nd November, the track was “inspired by speaking to a couple of friends who had tragically lost someone very close to them“.
Despite the unfortunate inspiration, the track is flighty and catchy from the off. Glistening guitars contrast with pounding drums to create a punchy, indie-rock sound that’s reminiscent of a slightly heavier version of The Magic Gang.
Alt. “90’s dream”, The Van T’s, embody the idea of empowerment. Glasgow based and female fronted, the band are well known for fearless and powerful tracks such as ‘Blood Orange’ and ‘Fresh Meat’. Despite the band being pretty quiet on the music releasing front since 2017, they’ve still bagged plenty of slots at 2018’s festivals and gigs, including Live At Leeds and Community Fest.
Back and fiercer than ever, newest single ‘Suis-Je Cool?’ is relentless and ferocious. It’s fast, punchy tempo combined with heavy guitar and gorgeous vocals certainly packs quite the punch – everything I would expect from the band that always tend to scream power in everything they do.
