It’s been a fortnight since we made a new music post, and as usual when it’s been slightly longer, somehow there’s disproportionately more tunes to write about (and that’s not counting the ones we’re missing out because the Spotify / WordPress plugin isn’t working for us these days). So without further ado, our first track this week is another new track from the upcoming GAPS album. If We Remain is the latest track the band have shared from As It Is, which comes out on 22nd June (according to the iTunes preorder page)
Theo Verney has shared Mind Fire, the first single from his debut album Once Small Piece which comes out next month on July 7th. You can pre-order the album now on bandcamp, which gives you a free download of Mind Fire.
Next up is the new single from Warsaw Radio called Still Have You To Hold. They’re playing at The Brunswick on July 7th, and are also currently working on their debut album with producer Jag Jago, who’s worked with The Maccabees and Florence Welch in the past.
Slightly more rough around the edges is the new Black Biro track Off The Shopping List. There’s no Black Biro gigs coming up as far as we know, but members of the band will be playing at the Kinks Under Kover night at the Prince Albert on 18th June.
Last time we mentioned Morning Smoke was back in January of last year. Since then they’ve regrouped and reformed as Method Actress and have just shared their debut single Point of View:
If it was a while since we mentioned the last band, it’s been even longer since we wrote about Grace Carter, who we caught supporting Fear of Men at the Dome Studio Theatre back in 2014. She’s now released her debut single, a beautiful, minimal track called Silence:
Other States have been on our list of bands to check out after The New Faith recommended them in their Brighton Rocks interview. As luck would have it, just yesterday they shared a new track, My Beau, which is the b-side to their new single Make Amends:
Talking of the New Faith, our next band were the support at their single launch recently. We caught the last few minutes of Grymm‘s set where they played their new single Gravity:
Next, an apology to Animal House. The original email from their people got lost amongst the hundreds of other emails that get sent to us, and we didn’t pick up on Coca Cola, until they sent us another asking what we think of it. We’re glad they did:
Now we have the debut single from Johnny Kills, Let’s Talk about Me, just under three minutes of trashy rock’n’roll:
Sunday is a funny old day to release a single, but that’s what Somebody’s Daughter are doing with their new single Pretty Game. Handily though it does tie in perfectly with the launch gig, which takes place at Latest Music Bar:
On the subject of bands with launch gigs on the day their record comes out, now’s the time to mention the debut Common Tongues album Divisions, out on 16th June with a launch gig at The Haunt. Here’s Pioneer, which came out as a single last month:
Horace sent over a taster of his In The Garden EP before it was public, which we liked very much. Now it’s up for everyone to listen to it would be rude of us not to include it in one of our new music posts:
Our last track this week is by BUNKR, a Lost Idol spin off project. A 12″ has come out on Love On The Rocks records, and this is one of the tracks from it – Juno’s Revenge:
