New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s new music roundup, starting off quiet, and getting noisier as we go along.

First up is La Lune, whose Bliss EP is every bit as lovely as the name suggests. Here’s EP opener He Breathes Colour When I Feel So Grey:

Next we have Night House with Ellie Ford. Their video for The Roots in the Wires just went live today:

Fruity Water released the video for their second single Rules this week. It’s taken from their upcoming album Thirst Takes which will be coming out on Big Salad Records on 30th March:
