Daydreamer // Boshe

Massive Stranger Things 80s dream pop vibes here, like everything about this track feels like it's been made for the Breakfast Club. It's incredible. So aside from the blanket of keys with the massive synth build up, the offset of chimes really works. Everything seems so considered that it is almost like the whole song... Continue Reading →

Digital Depression // MY-HI

Have you ever wanted to take a trip back to the 90s? The massive vocal styles of Incubus and Soundgarden, the huge basslines and odd quirky but completely fitting riffs? The massive fills and singalong choruses. MY-HI have smashed it with this single. It's like a perfect storm of elements and that guitar is stuck... Continue Reading →

My Light // Mika Jones

Beautiful dark song by Mika Jones, vocally reminiscent of Pearl Jam and 80s/90s punk, though there is a real surf vibe in the guitars and bongos. Pretty perfect, it's dark enough but not hard to listen to, in fact, it's pretty comforting! As it progresses, it becomes more experimental with various different parts, rock to...

Veil // Holsky

A fine blend of the Maccabees, Gary Numan and White Lies. Holsky has created an incredible, slow dancing, atmospheric, 80s tinged masterpiece. The visuals used set the scene, but the track really sends you back, this track could be the soundtrack to an emotional part of an 80s movie. The slow beat with the reverb... Continue Reading →

Tyrant // Pozzi

Bob Dylans protest music has had far reaching consequences and evoked discussion and change. This has inspired many new artists to fight for what they believe in and I think it is really admirable for anyone to stand up for what they believe. Saying that, Pozzi has managed to do this but do it with... Continue Reading →

Quietude // Lime Juice

Ready to let something beautiful into your weekend? Try this out for size. Retro stylings of Lime Juice, the obvious comparison would be Tame Impala but to be honest, I think this draws further afield. There is some real chilled jazz here, especially in the break down section. Those keys are awesome, the drums have... Continue Reading →

Sally Suffocate // Spooky Goose

Squeeze. Instantly thinking of Squeeze and Ian Dury and the Bockheads, as well as one of my favourites Hatcham Social. I love these downplayed slightly unhinged dark songs. The lyrics are class, the guitars are so incessant and Gang of Four that it's just genius. There is something so relaxing in the matter of fact... Continue Reading →

Old New Love // Chork

This world that we live in has become strange and unpredictable. Chork has harnessed the idea that you can still be in love in this socially disconnected world, whether it is reciprocated or not. A song about loss, about being apart, about love, it's got it all here. It doesn't dwell on unhappiness, infact it... Continue Reading →
