New Music – Michael A Grammar, Acquaintance, Them The Sky, Bentcousin, Japanese Sweets, Stark, Salt Ashes, Somni, Unknown Brothers

We’ve got a bumper New Music post for you today. I went to go and write it mid-week but Soundcloud was down and since then there’s been more tunes to write about.

First up is Michael A Grammar whose Random Vision EP is out on January 27th. We’ve previously featured another track on the EP (The Day I Come Alive, back in November), and now another track Suzanna is out there.

Acquaintance are releasing their album Satellite Stream on March 10th. To give us a taste of what’s to come, To give us a taste of what’s to come, they;ve sent us the dance pop track Making Eye Contact:

Next up is Them The Sky who have put up another track from their Echolalia EP. This is called Start Again:

Brighton Music Blog favourites Bentcousin have another new song up on Soundcloud. The Love Song recalls 60s Motown beats and has plenty of references in the lyrics too:

We featured Japanese Sweets in last week’s gig picks. It’s the new pseudonym of Speak Galactic’s Owen Thomas.Slow Motion Crash / Around You is widescreen prog electronica which makes Speak Galactic almost seem like pop music.

Changing tack completely, we’ve got the new folk rock single from Stark. Let’s Fall Down Together is out now and the band are playing at the Prince Albert on 4th March.

All out pop doesn’t seem to feature much on these pages, but Salt Ashes is here to change all that – her new single Somebody could easily be a Kylie single:

As if we hadn’t covered enough genres yet, here’s some lovely ambient electronica. Somni has put up a couple of tracks on bandcamp, in advance of an album due in February. Here’s Glacier:

Finally we have Unknown Brothers, who have put up their Unkown Brothers EP onto bandcamp. Physical copies are coming next month but until then, you can pick up the EP digitally here:

  1. Thanks for the tracks – a great selection!
