New Brighton Music

As mentioned in our last new music post, we’ve got some catching up to do. Apologies to any of the bands we’re writing about who got in touch with us weeks ago. Normal service should resume shortly.

First up is Psylhouette, a band from Brighton and Berlin who make beautiful motorik pop. Their new single is called Asking and features vocals by Juli Holz:

Junkyard Choir‘s new double A side single came out nearly four weeks ago Someone, below, is backed with another track called The Border, and both feature on the band’s album due in August.

Mother Me also have a new double A side. Here’s the video for Make Me Whole, which is backed by Norwegian Wool:

Fond of Rudy premiered their new track L O V E on Clash in July, which they describe as South Eastern Calypso Alt Pop:

The Rocking Horse Club are probably the band who we owe the biggest apology to – their mail came in the day after we did our last proper new music post. Sorry! The got in touch to ask us to feature their track Straight White Man, which looking at their facebook page seems to be doing a great job of upsetting all the people they’re intending to upset.

Birdskulls recently released Over It, which will also be the title track of their forthcoming EP on Art is Hard records, which is also going to be called Over It.

Vanguards have just put out their debut single Rosie & The Blackheart. If you like what you hear, there’s some live dates due to be announced any day now on their facebook page.

Thyla‘s new single Pristine Dream came out last Friday. If I’d have been a bit more on the ball I’d have got this post up in time to mention that they played this evening at The Joker, so instead I’ll tell you that you can catch them supporting Husky Loops at the Green Door Store on 10th August.

Although we’re managing to be fairly regular with our posts these days we haven’t actually made a new music post since the start of November, so we’ve got a bit of catching up to do. The first track we’re going to write about is very new though – the band’s first release (although both members are very established musicians) and only went online at the weekend. The band in question is called Fröst, and they’re made up of Johanna Bramli, who currently sings with The Larsens, but was also a member of Stereolab offshoot Imitation Electric Piano and The Woo!Worths (who we wrote about in the early days of the blog) and Fujiya & Miyagi’s Steve Lewis. The track’s called Crackling On The Wire, and if you like the sound of their motoric psychedelia their first gig is at the Rose Hill on 2nd December: Continue reading
